Red Sox Sign Relief Pitcher Chris Martin
Were you not familiar with effective middle relievers in Major League Baseball, you’d probably think that the Boston Red Sox signed the lead singer of Coldplay. But, this Chris Martin is a baseball pitcher, and he’s a pretty good one.
Did the Red Sox Overpay Masataka Yoshida?
How good will Masataka Yoshida be for the Red Sox? Like most baseball pundits, I do believe this is an overpay, but not as much as some people in the media would lead you to believe. Baseball America wasn’t all that glowing in their scouting report on Masataka Yoshida, giving him an above-average contact grade, […]
Knuckleball! – A Documentary Film Review
With its high production values and sharp directing, it’s easy to agree with the Knuckleball documentary’s Rotten Tomatoes rating of 94%.
Every Red Sox Player Ever – Alfredo Aceves
The Mexican relief pitcher Alfredo Aceves has a few interesting distinctions to his career. First of all, he played for only two teams in his Major League Baseball career, each bitter rivals, the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees. Aceves was remarkably brilliant for several seasons, even being credited with 10 wins to his […]

Advanced metrics may not be kind to the Rem Dawg, and perhaps he wasn’t the greatest player in Red Sox history. But, without the injuries he suffered that took away three of his prime seasons, he would’ve been more than likely a league-average regular for the vast majority of his Red Sox career. Traded to […]
Every Red Sox Player Ever: Andy Abad
Andy Abad never had any success in Major League Baseball, but unlike many who toil in the professional minor leagues for many seasons, he did make it to the show, not once, not twice, but three times. The long time minor leaguer was a pretty good hitter who probably never got a fair shake based […]
Every Red Sox Player Ever: Don Aase
Don Aase is best known to Red Sox fans as the guy the Boston Red Sox traded for second baseman Jerry Remy. Technically, this trade netted the Red Sox negative WAR, as Aase would go on to be a shutdown relief pitcher for a few years; Remy, while being a positive himself, suffered many injuries […]
The Career Year – Sonny Siebert with the 1971 Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox had some pretty good baseball players back in the 1970’s. But, one you may not have heard much about was Sonny Siebert. A starting pitcher who was better known for his strong first few years with the Cleveland Indians, Siebert was mediocre in two of his four full seasons with the […]
