Sox Lose Series Opener With the Angels

The Red Sox headed into a 4 game series with the Angels who are in the middle of a division race with the A’s, so it seems like the Halos have a lot more to be playing for than the Red Sox. The Sox could help out their former teammates Lester, Gomes, Crisp, Lowrie, Reddick, Moss and Punto if they took a few games from the Angels, but it seems like they were unable to get that accomplished...

Who Bat Flips After a Walk? David Ortiz Does

The Angels C.J. Wilson walked David Ortiz on a full count in the 1st inning with no men on base. The average ballplayer would simply toss his bat toward the unassuming bat boy and wiggle to his free base. David Ortiz is not your average ballplayer and therefore does what he pleases. He proceeded to give the most exuberant bat flip in the non-existent history of walk bat flips: David...

Talent Comparison: Trout vs. Bonds

Mike Trout is the arguably the best player in baseball with the ability to hit for contact and power at a level that is not matched by many.  That isn’t his only weapon in his arsenal though; Trout is faster than any 230lb man as any right to be.  Stealing 30 bases a year would be easy for Trout, though this year his team is holding him back.  When I look at Trout and all he...

That prompted Scioscia to say Saturday that Hamilton isn’t the player he […]
