The Mookie Betts Transformation

What the heck got into Mookie Betts? Admit it. You were disappointed in 2017 by Betts' 24 homers, 102 runs batted in, 101 runs scored and 26 stolen bases. Reading that, you now probably feel really greedy, but you have good reason to feel that way.

I remember watching him hit his first career home run in his MLB debut off of Pat Hentgen and give the Red Sox a much needed spark in late May [...]

The President of Baseball Operations – Dave Dombrowski

With now almost 3 years as President of Baseball Operations of the Boston Red Sox under his belt, it seems a fair time to take a look back at Dave Dombrowski and evaluate the job he has done.

The Beginning - Business as Usual The beginning of Dave's tenure was about as ungraceful as it gets, and really due to no fault of his own. After being let go by the Tigers, following a string of disappointing [...]
