      You know, John Henry and NESN, have made a lot of stupid mistakes and let a lot of people walk that shouldn’t have. But this is it. This is the one. I’m done. Don Orsillo is leaving, and I am ripsh!t about it. This season has been one 5 month long curb stomp delivered from the heel of a limited edition L.L. Bean Red Sox boot to the back of my head. But instead of walking away and letting me try to fish my teeth out of the storm drain, you decided to keep stomping. I don’t have any teeth left guys, come on, you’re...

  • Series P&P: Sox vs. Mets

    by John Morton

      The New York Mets currently have a record of 70-56 and are 6.5 games ahead of the preseason World Series favorite Washington Nationals. With all the hype surrounding the 2015 Red Sox going into the year, one would have thought that these two teams would be in opposite positions at this point. Yet, here we are at the end of August with the Mets surging and the Red Sox examining what they have for 2016. Game 1: Henry Owens (2-1, 4.50 ERA) vs. Matt Harvey (11-7, 2.57 ERA) In a matchup of young guns, the series opens on Friday with the young...

      After splitting with the AL leading Kansas City Royals, the Red Sox kept their momentum going by taking two of three from the Chicago White Sox. Excluding the split with the Royals, the Red Sox have now won four of their last five series. I just wish this string of wins could have happened when the Red Sox were actually in the race. Bright Spots How about the young guns? The Red Sox will be relying on young players in the future and Xander Bogaerts, Mookie Betts, and Rusney Castillo all recorded at least one hit in the series. Castillo...

But instead of walking away and letting me try to fish my teeth out of the storm drain, you decided to keep stomping. I don’t have any teeth left guys, come on, you’re just smashing my gums into the corner of Yawkey and Van Ness at this point. Why are doing this? Don and Jerry were one of the best tandems out there. It’s not going to get better next season. The...

 Finally, the dark days of Hanley Ramirez pathetically fumbling around in left field are over. The arrival of Dave Dombrowski has prompted Ramirez to accept that he can help the Sox best at first base (or hurt them the least). “I think with me at first, we’re going to have a better team on the field, competing every day,” Ramirez said on Tuesday. We’ve got a guy out...
