    Red Sox Rumors

    So some here are willing to believe the latest from Pete Abe, but not the previous "sox will get chance to match" rumor. Either eat all the bullshit, or none of it. No halfsies just because it jibes with how one feels about Bloom.

    Red Sox sign P Chris Martin

    The mid tier range or below is where shopping for relievers should be. You need a lot of them, and 33%-50% will suck in any given year.

    I thought one thing that hurt the Celtics was that Tatum really tried to force his own offense in the 4th Q. Unsuccessfully, most of the time.

    Damon's a moron with a good heart. I'm glad Grossfeld didn't write a "portrait of a moron." Besides, any sentient reader knows that a .30 BAC is more than "three beers." Grossfeld practiced "showing, not telling," which is what a good writer does.
