Jason Varitek 2009 Report Card B-

2nd up in the Catcher category – Jason Varitek.

I guess it could have been worse – Varitek played in 109 games for the Red Sox in 2009, notching 364 at-bats. Tek surpassed his 2008 numbers in less games and less at-bats, so that was definitely a positive. But he took a back seat […]

Tim Wakefield Injury Update – All Good News

Good news Red Sox fans – Tim Wakefield’s back surgery (as we previously reported) is being called “successful.” I’m never too sure exactly what that means when we’re dealing with an athlete going under the knife, but I guess it’s better than them coming out and saying that the surgery was “unsuccessful”.

Wakefield was a […]

Red Sox Coaches on the Move? Francona Hopes Not

Red Sox coaches Brad Mills and Tim Bogar are still in the hunt for the Astros top coaching job. Astros GM Ed Wade let Terry Francona go in Philadelphia – he […]

Let’s Put a Rest to Papelbon Trade Rumors

I’m sick of all of these Jonathan Papelbon trade rumors. The Red Sox would be dumb to try to move Papelbon, and I don’t think Owner John Henry, GM Theo Epstein or Manager Terry Francona are too dumb… Do you?

Sure, Papelbon blew Game 3 of the ALDS against the Angels by giving up […]
