The Red Sox won a game in Detroit, right? Because it really feels like they got swept. One of those series that really gets under your skin.

  • With the Red Sox the only Boston team seemingly without drama these days, it’s about time we soak up the sun at a game or two. Hey, they are in 1st place in the AL East, y’know… (Summer camp for Red Sox)
  • Speaking of the AL East, it’s true that the Red Sox are leading by 2 games. Regardless of the standings, though, all five of those teams are all OVER .500 in win percentage. How’s that for a division, huh? (The AL East is unreasonably good)
  • Cuba does “export” – read: defect – something better than cigars these days – baseball players. And Ben Cherington was the only GM to see this one in person. (Cherington only GM to attend showcase)

That awful feeling when you weren’t able to do all you possibly can…

    I'm not sure how people are complaining about that play It was clearly a drop.

      Are you serious? Nava clearly caught it and then lost it in the transition. I honestly didn't think it was even a very difficult call.
