As you know by now, I’ve been a Red Sox fan my entire life.  Okay, since I was about seven years old.  Prior to that, I was corrupted because I lived 45 minutes from the Bronx and everyone in my small home town cheered for the pinstripes. But after I was able to witness Yaz […]


Now that we’re in the final quarter of the regular season, let’s take a look at the teams that are still in the hunt for playoff spots.  I know that mathematically, all of the teams are still in the race, but I’m going to stick with reality for now. First I’ll take a look at […]

Most early projections did not pan out […]

I know, you’re probably scratching your head, sounding something like Tim the Tool Man Taylor – HUGHHMM?  (If you don’t get that one, ask your father!)
