    How many of these pitchers with one career Red Sox save do you remember

    I spent a pleasant hour on a cold and rainy day looking for the one save Bill Monbouquette had. It occurred on June 21,1964 at Baltimore. He relieved Earl Wilson who was the winner in a slugfest, 9-6. Monbo pitched the last 4 innings of the game and gave up 1 earned run. Dick Stuart had 4 hits...

    Red Sox Sign Jake Diekman

    Diekman comes from a very small town on the Nebraska-Kansas border and has ulcerative colitis which required surgery in the past, so I have followed his career through multiple teams. He has always seemed to be a dependable guy to have in the bullpen and so hopefully will be a useful addition...

    Did Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy Contribute to Ernest Hemingway’s Death? - American Academy of Ophthalmology ( I published this before a neurologist published an entire book on this theory. I have no knowledge that Giambi ever had head trauma or any new proof of the relationship of...

    AFC and NFC Championship game thread

    A game for the ages last night. I don't usually comment in this forum but, having followed the Chiefs since the days of Len Dawson, Buck Buchanan, et. al., I had to add my accolades to the performance by both teams last night. And I am decidedly apprehensive about the outcome next week. Burrow...

    Jon Lester announces his retirement

    Who cares about HOF? He battled cancer and pitched for 16 years in the big leagues. He will always be a winner to me. Enjoy your retirement, Big Guy.

    Red Sox player that you cared most about

    Ok, to make up for originally not scrolling the entire thread before posting, here is a name which would not be mentioned otherwise. As a 10- year- old kid, this was the guy who originally got me interested in the Red Sox until I later found out he was only a temporary replacement for a better...

    Sorry: Just got around to reading full thread.

    Red Sox player that you cared most about

    I haven't scrolled over the entire thread but appreciated the references to Ike Delock, and Earl Wilson who I also liked. I think my favorite was Frank Malzone though. I remember him coming up with Don Buddin from Louisville as a young rookie, anchoring third base for years, hitting a home run...

    Red Sox sign Rich Hill to a one year deal

    At last the full story on Rich Hill. I can quit searching for Dick Mountain on Facebook now. 2022 is now complete for me.

    Rich Hill ?

    Sorry. I'm old , so just get rid of this before I am also deemed senile. Thanks for the above info.

    Rich Hill ?

    I saw on Facebook that he signed with the Red Sox but it is not on MLB or the Red Sox site. Is this "fake news"?

    2022 HOF Candidates: Ortiz and Papelbon First Time on Ballot

    There are plenty of sources more reliable than Stump documenting Cobb as a true a-hole and racist.

    2022 HOF Candidates: Ortiz and Papelbon First Time on Ballot

    If Schilling is kept out of the HOF because of "losing his mind" over non-baseball behavior, then present HOFers with even more unacceptable behavior should probably be removed as well to maintain the moral purity of the institution. Ty Cobb would be my first nomination and I'm not too sure...
