Squish the Phish Week I want to thank the NFL schedule makers for this absolute gift. Honestly getting this trip to Miami out of the way week one ? Somebody up there really likes me. If you’ve been around here long enough you know why I’m so thrilled. If you are new to the show, well here’s the short of it….. I fuckin hate Miami. I hate Florida . Yes The entire place. I am on record that Florida is my least favorite foreign country. It’s hot, it’s flat, it’s sweaty. Even the
Rejoicing rang throughout the Red Sox nation twitterverse as Jeff Pasan of ESPN announced the Fenway love affair with Kiké Hernandez would continue through 2023. Hate to rain on your parade but. Red Sox have extended Kiké Hernandez on a 1-year deal worth $10 million for the 2023 season, per @JeffPassan.
Absolutely love them bringing him back. Gold Glove caliber defense in CF and a bat that has bounced back since he got healthy.pic.twitter.com/VEutCDd6vl

In a season that may have Red Sox fans reaching for bleach to wash away the memory of, CEO and President ( Jesus how many titles do you need these days) Sam Kennedy takes zero pause in saying Chief Baseball officer Chaim Bloom isn’t going anywhere. And neither is Alex Cora. “I am very comfortable saying Chaim and Alex will be back,” Kennedy told The Athletic on Monday. “And I am very comfortable saying there is a strong belief in the direction of the franchise from our owners
Here we go Patriots people. This mess of a preseason is over and done, don’t forget to tip your Waite staff. After all, they didn’t shop for the groceries and never mind cook them. I’m jumping in with both feet here as I’ve been asked two dozen times who’s in and who’s out. I won’t proclaim to be the best at this projection thing. I have no crystal ball. Hell i wasn’t even at camp and I’m sure by the second paragraph some if not most of you will be asking WTAF Murph ? But th
Lets jump into the wayback machine boys and girls. It’s 1983. I’m a sophomore in high school looking to crack the varsity baseball team. My kid brother is training to become a professional Super Mario Bro’s player. My mother is dealing with a Cabbage Patch doll addiction, and my sister is locked in her room doing the FlashDance workout. And Joe Castiglione is sitting down at the Mic at Fenway for the first time. Lost in the furry that was Carl Yastrzemski’s final season, a yo

Confirmed from the man himself, Brayan Bello has been informed he’s starting for the Red Sox Wednesday
— Katie Morrison (@KatieMo61) July 5, 2022 Brian Bello is set to make his MLB debut tonight when the Red Sox take the field against division rival Tampa. I’m just not quite sure why. Yes, young Bello ( BAY-oh ) has impressed in 2022. In six starts in AA Portland he put up a 1.60 ERA. But as Portland isn’t allowed to have nice things the powers that be Bloom sent him to AAA W
Yea Cleveland , I refuse to , I just can’t . I’m old, and cranky and you can’t make me. Anyway, The Sox stayed hot carrying their brooms with them from Fenway to Progressive Field ( even that hurts too type ) sweeping the “ Cleveland’s “ in a three game set.

Here we go again boys and girls. Harken back to the end of the lock out. The Sox offered Xander Bogaerts a one-year extension just after training camp opened. which would have given him a new four-year, $90 million pact, but the X-Man seemed to have his eye on a contract more in line with what other recently cashed up shortstops are pulling down. Carlos Correa, Francisco Lindor, and Corey Seager have signed deals paying them around 35 million a year. Xander Bogaerts has opene
Was this the way in 2021 ? Did the Red Sox improbable run that carried them all the way to the ALCS blow up the laboratory that Chaim is using to create his spare parts monster as Red Sox Chief of Baseball Operations ? Is his and John Henry’s plan of a low cost Red Sox team finally coming to fruition? You bet your ass it is. John Henry is greasing the skids to complete the greatest 3-year talent drain* in the history of the @RedSox … but Garrett Whitlock gets a glowing revie
Let’s get one thing straight. Baseball is a simple game. You Hit The Ball. You Throw The Ball. And You Catch The Ball. All things the Boston Red Sox have forgotten how to do. The Sox are sitting at the bottom of the A.L East at 10-19 looking up at the entire division. Only the Detroit tigers have a worse winning percentage (.296) in the American league. How did this happen? Well ill tell you. Poor preparation, a lack of foresight and arrogance. So does this though… pic.twitt
Maybe just maybe it isn’t Trevor Story’s fault. Or anyone else on the Red Sox roster, Or MLB for that matter. It seems the MLB dinger parade is over. At least for the first month plus of the major league baseball season. Over the last three seasons teams are averaging fewer and fewer home runs per nine innings. In 2022 the league average is 0.92, in 2021 it was 1.22 per nine and in 2020 a robust 1.39 in 2019. Trevor Story wRC+ by season
Check the date. Right it’s May Fifth and the Red Sox are mired in fourth place, five games under .500 and eight games behind the got damn Yankees. In my ongoing 2021 series ( How Chaim Bloom sucks ) we take a look at his bullpen. Not yours. I refuse to call this Boston’s bullpen. Because quite frankly you all would have done a better job putting one together. We take a look at this mess and see if we can fix it. More 🔥🔥 from Garrett Whitlock. pic.twitter.com/dPfYZfriHG
You can’t win a pennant in April. But you can sure as hell lose one. And it looks as if Chaim Blooms 2022 Red Sox are doing all they can to prove that fact. The last place Orioles have scored more runs this afternoon than the Red Sox have since last Monday.

Five times in the last six games the Red sox have failed to plate three runs. Yes you read that right. In five of the past six they have scored two or fewer runs. Go check my math I’ll wait. TWO PITCHES AND THE #REDSOX ARE ON THE BOARD!

The Red Sox and NESN paid tribute to the late great Jerry Remy on wednesday. The only issue to a beautiful ceremony was the lack of Jerrys fifteen year partner in the Red Sox booth Don Orsillo. I was offered the opportunity to do a video message for my friend and former partner Jerry Remy for tonight’s ceremony at Fenway Park. Sadly, I was notified by Red Sox/NESN that my video would no longer be needed for tonight’s ceremony. Here was my message. @RedSox @NESN pic.twitter.co
The Sox moved above .500 yesterday with their 8-1 win over the Twins. Eight to one, sounds impressive and it is. The only caveat to this doubleu is the fact most of the damage was done in the eighth inning. Michael Wacha has impressed early in his #RedSox career:
2 Starts – 9.1 IP
3 Hits Allowed
Considering Wacha’s velocity is still building up, it’s hard not to be excited.#DirtyWater| #MLB pic.twitter.com/H9WK0HKYdh

The honeymoon is now over. The Bloom is officially off the Chaim. It’s opening day at Fenway and the biggest story is the complete lack of respect for it’s homegrown heroes.
