Glad your back to writing this blog derek, i missed it a lot!!!!
I got nothing good to say, except I am so ready for this season to start, I am ready to see what Brad, John, Rocco, and Saito can bring to this team, I am excited to see who wins the shortstop position, I am cheering for Jed, even tho Julio has a lot of $$ and time left w/ us, I am glad to see that Papi lost weight, and who cares that he won't be backed by that whiney dread wearing money hungry man we call Manny this year, I am so happy Theo and Co signed Youkie and Pedroia to contracts, they are so worth it, I want Mikey to do well this year and I hope he does!!! Lets go SOX!!

Billy da Kid

About time! Welcome back!


wow - I don't know what I am more excited about baseball or the return of SAWXBLOG!

What a fun post, I look forward to the next one


This has been a strange off-season, and it's funny how the Yanks always seem to be in the middle of it. On that though I'm surprised you lacked to really mention the Ray except for in the open, they scare me more now then the overpaid MFY.


Fantastic article, Derek! I highly anticipate the future entries to come. Congrats on the relaunch!

Zac - I love the illustration.

Derek Hixon

Thanks for the kind words everyone, it's good to be back, and people were saying that Red Sox camp is boring this year, pshaw! You just have to be looking at things from the right angle.

And Sam don't worry about the Rays, I have plenty of ammunition for them as well, can't use all my bullets in one battle.


One more thing..

This article makes me miss HST.


wow, what a post. I'm going to have to raise the bar this year, aren't I?

Derek Hixon

This post was most certainly an homage to the great doctor. I've been reading a lot of HST recently, and his ability to mix sports, politics, and fun is second to none.

And Kris, your posts have always had a high bar, so you got nothing to worry about there!


Nice redesign, Derek.

Given the economy, this will be a surreal baseball season. I don't know whether to be encouraged or more disturbed by the Yankees' spending habits. I mean, after all, unlike most businesses, at least they're actually spending.


I was so excited about your return, i waited all day and held it out like a carrot. Cracked a narraganset, picked out some swell music and really made an occasion of it. You didn't disappoint. how does it feel to have your own illustrator? love the freak power logo.

Derek Hixon

Bill - The one thing you can never fault the Yanks and their management is putting their $$$ where their mouths are. I just question if continually signing high tier free agents for top dollar is still a smart approach. I know they have their new stadium (which raises financial questions of its own) so they want top talent to fill those seats. The gross spending just came off a little desperate to me. Either way, they'll be a force (as always), and at the least, they always make things Dallas Cowboy interesting.

And Jesse, it is highly advised to drink Narraganset while reading SawxBlog. It's a relationship that dances better together then Ginger & Freddy. And the illustrations of Mr. Trainor & SawxBlog may dance even better then that, huh?

Freak Power '09.

2005 BDD Playoff Push Party

  • Bar & TV's and Boston Dirt Dogs had a playoff push party at Game On! in Fenway Park on September 19. The game didn't go so well as the Sox lost, however, a lot of people had a good time hanging out while getting to "meet" the trophy!

2004 World Series: Game One

  • Mounted Police
    My brother Chris flew into Boston from Chicago to help me root on and pull for the Sox in the Series. We went right from Logan Airport to the Park and ended up watching the game across the street from Fenway at Bills Bar on Landsdown Street. We looked into scalping tickets but standing room only were going for $1,200 and up!This was a great and memorable day to be able to be with my brother in Boston to see the Red Sox in the World Series. This is a snap shot of two weeks of my life that provided a lot of sorrow, joy, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. Two of the best weeks of my life...
