In a strange, polar-vortex-related topic, “vortex” should be the next abstract team name. How terrifying would it be to face, say, the London Vortex?
- Hall of Fame voting has essentially become a farce. You need to be cleaner than an operating room and media-friendly to get in. (Ken Gurnick is only the latest example why the Hall of Fame process stinks)
- Nothing more than a shoulder shrug from Curt Schilling. Even he seems to know that it’s all bad in the end. That’s pretty sad. (Hall Of Fame ‘Completely Out Of My Control’)
- Who could be the next Hall of Famer for Boston? If everything breaks right, we’d better expect one hell of a speech from Pedro Martinez. (Who’s the Red Sox’ next Hall of Famer?)
- The Sox have starting pitching depth to trade, but won’t do anything with it until Masahiro Tanaka‘s signing establishes a market. (Tanaka’s decision could have domino effect for Red Sox)
- He was lethal against left-handers until he got hurt, and now Andrew Miller aims to regain a spot in the Sox bullpen in 2014. (Andrew Miller puts best foot forward)
- Sure, Fenway’s got The Triangle, but with fewer balls being put in play, a triple could become quite a rarity in the future. (The Dwindling Chances of Seeing a Triple)
- More beards, more success. The Patriots get it. (Mankins compares beards with those of the Red Sox)
Good thing DC has enough ice for this burn.
Ice floes on the Potomac breaking up. That helps scientists measure the melting point of fecal matter.
