Thanks! It's been fun! Here's to great stuff in the future for the Sox and for yourself!

Kris Chandler

I owe you a huge debt of gratitude. Were it not for you, and Sawxblog, I would never have had the chance to share my words with your readers. You inspired me to take the chance of throwing my writing out there, and letting the readers decide if it was any good.

I will miss this place immensely, as well the sports lunatics who inhabit it. Thanks, friend.

Awesome run Derek!

This site will be missed. especially with my current mid-week job location viewing this site was something special, maybe you could get a Skype account so we can chat on those summer mornings when the past nights events must be discussed :)



I'm sorry to see you end the blog, Derek. I certainly understand your reasons. I've enjoyed your take on the Red Sox, and it was a pleasure to meet you during my Trivia Night last year.

Let me wish you all the best in your future endeavors, Derek. Hope to see you at Thom's one night for Trivia and a Sox game. I'm going to make a mention for your retirement on my blog today. Take care and be well.

Go Sox!

you did good. i don't even like baseball and I'm sorry to see it go. Hope you find another worthy cause to put your energy into. peace and love. john


We're losing a good one. Best of luck!


From a fellow member of Red Sox Nations I'm sad to see you go. I have enjoyed your blog more than you will ever know. Being stuck in Utah it's hard to keep up with the Sox and your blog did it for me. I will miss you. Good Luck in the future.

Thank You

You should come out of retirement like a gunfighter. You have some good content and I just no stumbled across your site.


When the going gets tough, Quit. You're getting out at the perfect time.

2007 World Series: Game One

  • Monster Cop
    Photos of Game 1 of the 2007 World Series. My girlfriend Jeannine and I took my Dad and didn't tell him until we were basically at the Gate. One of the best nights of my life hands down.

2007 Dad Game: 9/10

  • Red Sax
    This was the first time I've been to a game with my Dad since the early 90's and it was just awesome, especially with everything that happened with my Mom a few weeks ago. I know she was watching the game with us and had to have been happy to see us happy.

2006 Marthon Monday

  • Cooking out
    Marathon Monday (Patriots Day) is a great tradition in Boston. The Sox always start early in the a.m. and the marathon is on it's final stage right outside of Kenmore as the game lets out. This is a photo tour of our experiance, enjoy!

2005: RSN at Wrigley Field

  • Wrigley Field Sign
    This past Mothers Day I was visiting Chicago and attended a Cubs/Phillies game. This was my first time at Wrigley Field and I was embraced by my NL cousins. Chris & I represented the Red Sox and I was congratulated on the 2004 season by numerous Cubbie fans. Here you'll find 11 pics from the game.

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...
