« Hotel California | Main | Big T's Blazin' Sports Thoughts - Trade Papelbon? »

October 16, 2009



Well written... hey, there's always football!


I love how the Sox "beat the Yankees like a limp fish," but we were "annoying gnats." That line was entertaining. I see it as the other way around actually. we lost 3 or 4 of those games out of the 0-8 start through really weird stuff. Where as be destroyed you down the stretch. I told my Red sox fan friends that it meant something. But you guys didnt think so. I agree with you that the payroll gap has become ridiculous. But lets be honest. It's not like the TALENT gap is that big... its just that when free agents are on the market these days they hold out for the Yankees to drop big coin. But as far as I'm concerned... it was well worth it this year. We've taken a beating in years past because of our underachievement. Our teams were built for the long haul fo the Reg season... but in reality we simply were not equipped for the Post Season. This year is different. And I have news for you... thus far... the ghosts and aura seem to be back, but across the street. Which of course means that there never were any ghosts or Aura... it was simply that the Yankees were the better team for 86 years. Clearly. And it seems like we may get back to that point with the core we have in place. I wont be bold enough to say we'll win it all this year. I've learned my lesson many times. But it looks that way. Back to payroll - The Yankees are doing noting wrong, because the rules allow it. Like you said they invest in their product... and the Sox have a TON of money. But the Steinbrenners are the best owners in sports so... The Yankees just happen to play in NY... and well as long as the current structure of payroll is in place... NY will always outspend everyone because of the market. So hate the Market - Not the game. And dude... did you SERIOULY not watch any SC? Trust me you didnt miss much. Being the ultra Sox biased station it is... they barely spoke about the Sox losing... the Same way Ortiz got off scott free when we found out his talent came almost solely from being a sauce head. I always watched after the Yankees lost... cus it consoled me a bit. Some of the analysts, the guys who have been there, know how to make you feel a little better. Anyway kudos for updating the site... I thought for sure you were gonna wait it out hoping the Yankees to lose. Props.


wow!!! really they play funtastic....

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...
