A Lull for Boo-birds
One thing that’s particularly fun about the first few weeks
of the baseball season is the spirited back-and-forth taunting between fans of
rival teams. My Dad’s cousin, the local butcher and a plumber friend are all
die-hard Yankees fans and early in the se...

The Boys Game is Back
Baseball is back! Every year Opening Day (and yes, I
capitalize it like a holiday) brings a renewed sense of hope to fans around the
world. It’s the time when every team has an even shot at the World Series and
every player has a chance to be the MVP. The c...

A trade we need to make
I was at
McCoy for Clay Buchholz' first start in AA and at Fenway for his first major
league start so seeing him get traded to Philly should make me a bit wistful -
but it doesn't. He was a big part of recent winning seasons, but it's time to
bring in relia...

Pitch a clean campaign
As the end of primary season comes to a close, I look
forward to general election that draws starker contrasts between the candidates
and the issues they support. Rhode Island is a state in decline and we need

Losing our place in the league
I am no football expert, but I have to believe that the
Patriots have a plan in place for the post-Brady era. Of course, we all hope
that day does not come for many more years and playoff appearances, but clearly
the value of the franchise is too high for t...

There’s bias at every base
Red Sox fans remember well the excitement surrounding Pablo
“Panda” Sandoval’s arrival in 2015 as well as the disappointment we felt when
he emerged bigger and slower to start the 2016 season. While big athletes exist
in many sports, his proportions were wo...

It’s not easy to field a whole new team
Since the election, the news
has been full of rumors, fake articles and some legitimate information about
President-elect Trump’s cabinet picks as well as the transition itself. It
seems as if the news media is still scrambling to come to terms with the

Just say no to fake news
November is a dark month for baseball fans. It’s too early
to talk about spring training and the hot stove isn’t even warm — there’s just
not that much to say right now. Rather than just making stuff up (about Ortiz
wanting to return one more season but wor...
