    Jason Varitek tests positive for Covid-19

    I haven’t been in a grocery store since March 14th. And I know many people don’t have the privilege I do to be able to Instacart just about everything but Tek certainly does. I hope Tek gets better soon but also am always curious to everyone’s definition of “doing all the right things.” I’m not...

    Rethinking Barstool?

    When women on Twitter know that if they mention Barstool in a tweet they need to edit out some of the letters (typing it "B**st**l" or some variation) because if they don't then Portnoy's minions will converge on them like locusts, well that isn't the women over-reacting, that's a fact of life...

    Rethinking Barstool?

    <raises hand> As a woman who is a Boston sports fan, I care. A lot.

    Dan Shaughnessy: Taking a dump in your mouth one column at a time

    The bolded is absolutely true for me (50 the end of this year, began watching the Sox with my father when Fred Lynn was roaming centerfield). I was able to take my dad to Opening Day 2001. My first time taking HIM instead of the other way around. We took the bus in and a guy noticed his Sox...

    Shank aka CHB calls out David Price calling out Eck

    While they didn’t show it happen, they didn’t ignore it. Dave O’Brien brought it up (specifically pointing out how big the ovation for him was) and Jonny Gomes made a remark about him deserving the ovation (he said something along the lines of “If you’re sitting in the Legends Suite, you deserve...

    Pete Abe : Knavish Twitterer

    Abraham was an absolute jackass to me via email back in 2012. He sent me an email based on a twitter interaction I had with someone else on Twitter about him. (I didn’t @ him but the person who took issue with my tweet did – so he did some digging and found my email address.) Even before that, I...

    Jenny Dell Leaving NESN

    She seems genuinely nice but if  her Twitter feed is any indication I wouldn't feel too sorry for her. She seems to be happily embracing the life of a baseball player's girlfriend.

    Kirk and Callahan: Done

    Edited to keep relatively on topic:   If the MVP for the 2004 World Series isn’t the right person to throw out the pitch at a ceremony celebrating the 2004 World Series team then no one is.

    Steve "Sucko" Lyons

      I actually like Lyons and have throughout his career but last night on NESN he came across as nothing more than a cranky old man. After lambasting Pineda for his stupid decision he finished off by complaining about the way Pineda wears his cap. It was as if NESN gave my 79 year-old father a...

    Dan Shaughnessy: Taking a dump in your mouth one column at a time

    Am I remembering incorrectly? Before Ortiz came to Boston didn't CHB call him a "bag of shit" or something similar? With his history, does Shaughnessy really believe he can get away with saying he doesn't hate David Ortiz? (And does he really think asking us to not hate HIM will do anything but...

    Jenny Dell "interviews" Will Middlebrooks long time

      The bolded part is the issue I have and seems to be the problem most other women I've discussed this with have. In theory, I couldn't care less who WMB or Jenny Dell is schtupping but it does reinforce that stereotype that the Abby Chins of the world have to fight off every day. So while Dell...

    Keith Olbermann: New studio host for post-season MLB games

      Please, she was married to Robert Foxworth. Unless she was slumming, she was completely out of KO's league, even if he was only 30.

    Keith Olbermann: New studio host for post-season MLB games

      He started his rant about the gifts on Twitter Sunday night in real time. When someone tweeted to him that it didn't surprise them that he didn't like it because he was a Yankees fan, his response was that he WASN'T a Yankees fan. His history on the subject, supplied mostly by him over the...

    Why Do I Continue to Read Peter King?

      I initially felt this way about him and Simmons et al starting up with not using the word Redskins but with a bit more thought it occurred to me that at SOME point if you believe it you have to take this stand. Maybe it should have been done sooner but better to finally come to the realization...

    IMO...because he's become one of those entitled fans who can't be bothered sticking around to watch his team lose. Or maybe it was traffic? There's more than just vehicle traffic at the Garden. He could have been trying to beat the foot traffic getting out of the building. It doesn't really...

    Why Do I Continue to Read Peter King?

    I've never actively looked to read Peter King but every Monday I show up here to read DrLeather's takedowns. As has been said, you're doing God's work here. Thank you!

    Kirk and Callahan: Done

    I don't think giving Meterparel a chance to live out a dream is a reason to give him a job but I also think the idea that it's tacky or horrible or whatever else folks are calling it is ridiculous. It's a fun little thing, why not treat it as such? I couldn't care less what the Yankees said or...

    Kirk and Callahan: Done

    I'm curious as to what is tacky about having people you want to consider for the job of announcer doing announcing before you decide who to hire? I mean it isn't as if they're announcing at the games "tonight's announcer is..." and making it like a game show. I suppose asking someone publicly...

    Why Do I Continue to Read Peter King?

    They have a live webcam on it. Was he there this past Saturday? They have stills of folks crossing on the site; I suppose the possibility of his being one is pretty slim.
