    Jerry Remy Has Passed Away

    So awful. Tough as he was, I figured he'd be back in the booth next year. Condolences to his family, friends, and fans. Thanks, Jerry, for the on-field contributions, and the fun times during the broadcasts. I loved all the shenanigans, and his New England sense of humor. The laughter was...

    Soup Goes to Nam

    I have thought the same thing: Soup should write a book. You can't help but want to hear more of his story if you read Bill Lee's The Wrong Stuff (which I think is where the Lee quotes above come from). Actually, The Wrong Stuff should be reprinted, it's a terrific read. (Like practically...

    Whatever happened to the 10th Player Award? Submit nominations

    I'd like to add another vote for Leon. I like Shaw as a second. And thanks for the thread...it reminded me that I saw Hobson receive his award before my first game at Fenway, 9/11/77, I believe (a win vs Tigers, grand slam by Rice).
