And away goes the White Sox. It’s a real shame to seem them go, I’ve always liked entertaining games where the Red Sox win in spite of their awfulness.
- It’s almost like clockwork for the 2013 Boston Red Sox: another series win (a sweep, no less), and another step closer to a getting to play some October baseball. (Red Sox beat White Sox 7-6)
- For a while there, David Ortiz was slumping pretty badly. Then the White Sox showed up, and just like Papi’s trademark bombs, that slump is long gone. (Slump just a memory after another big day from Ortiz)
- As much as we harp on the guy, Jarrod Saltalamacchia has quietly put together a great season, making him a pretty valuable free-agent-to-be. (Saltalamacchia has made himself into quite a catch)
- Jake Peavy knows the feeling of being traded to a contender. And when it comes to facing your old buddies again, he knows that it’s all business. (For Jake Peavy, A Tale Of Two Trades Means A World Of Difference)
- He had so much promise, and we saw glimpses of what he could be. But Daniel Bard just couldn’t put it back together after a disastrous 2012 season. (Sad end to Daniel Bard saga)
- This isn’t anything close to game-changing trade, but the Red Sox made a last-minute waiver wire deal for infielder John McDonald. (Red Sox trade Nefi Ogando to Phillies for John McDonald, cash)
- If there’s a will, there’s a way & a White House petition to go along with it. (There is a White House petition to ban the pitcher win statistic)
The kid’s doing good things.
Before Bogaerts, the last Red Sox 20-year-old to reach base three times and score a run and drive in a run in a game was Tony Conigliaro.
