Every Red Sox Player Ever – Jerry Remy

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: David Aardsma

On January 28, 2008, the Boston Red Sox traded Willy Mota and Miguel Socolovich to the Chicago White Sox for relief pitcher David Aardsma.

I quickly realized that the trend for Rich Hill had to do with the documentary film that shares his name. However, former […]

Todd Helton is easily one of the best baseball players who ever played for the Colorado Rockies. Sure, Hall of Famer Larry Walker played some of his best years in Denver, but Helton played his entire career for the team.
