(Photo Credit: USA Today Sports) By Joshua Nord – @nordjoshua I consider myself fortunate to have grown up in the baseball era that I did. The tail end of the steroid era where you could still tune in to see Barry Bonds launch nukes, and Roger Clemens’ power heaters past any hitter. It was a sensational time where baseball was big both in the … Continue reading SHOHEI OHTANI: FACED WITH AN IMPOSSIBLE HYPE, AND DRASTICALLY EXCEEDING IT
By Terry Cushman – @cushmanMLB The Red Sox have began the year near the top of most offensive, and pitching catagories. From a pitching stand point specifically, they have a 2.94 ERA overall. David Price has been the only starter in 2018 thus far to turn in a poor performance, albeit only one on a freezing night at Fenway Park against the Yankees. … Continue reading MY PICK: RED SOX PITCHER WITH THE BEST CHANCE TO WIN THE 2018 CY YOUNG
(Photo Credit: Zimbio) By Jonathan Usher – @madduxman Should our new leader, Alex Cora, implement a 6-man rotation? In my opinion, with this particular staff, I think it’s a great idea.

VOL. 2
By Dave Little – @DLittleMLB Let me clearly state for the record that I am a Jackie fan. I always have been. The kid had to completely grind to get to where he is, and was sent up and down to Pawtucket multiple times before finally reaching the point where we currently have him. Also remember that Bradley was one of the hottest bats in … Continue reading WHAT TO DO WITH JACKIE BRADLEY JR?
(Photo Credit: Sun Journal) By Joshua Nord – @nordjoshua It’s April, it’s still early, but most importantly the Red Sox are winning. At the time of this writing the Sox sit atop the American League East while their rivals sit below the Blue Jays, and around .500. This by all means is a good start.
