- With the Red Sox signing Chris Capuano, their pitching depth was restored. But he could’ve been a hero for the Sox not too long ago. (When Chris Capuano could have saved the Red Sox)
- Shots fired? Maybe? Larry Lucchino does speak some truth – the Red Sox are built and run differently from the Yankees. (Red Sox “a different animal” than Yankees when it comes to team-building)
- It’s not that the Red Sox should lock up their young talent right away, it’s that it is better business to wait and see what they’ll do. (Sox won’t be locking up young stars anytime soon)
- The answer isn’t anything definite, but Jackie Bradley Jr. has the right idea. Only time will reveal how good the youngsters are. (Jackie Bradley Jr.: ‘Time Will Tell’ How Red Sox Youth Will Play)
- Hey guys, Mike Trout is on his way to breaking baseball. No, that’s not a hyperbole. He really is. (Mike Trout Has Finally Broken Baseball’s Math)
Brew-ehara? I guess you have to do something in the offseason to keep busy.
