Batter-up with Bruno: I won’t welcome back Johnny Damon with open arms

Johnny Damon He was a hero in 2004. A self proclaimed “idiot.” He put the icing on the cake in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series with a grand slam in the second inning to the right-field upper deck and a two-run shot in the fourth sending the Boston Red Sox to its […]

Batter-up with Bruno: annoying promos; umpire laziness

Promo-psycho I have to say this season I really haven’t been able to actually sit down and watch a complete Red Sox game from start to finish with the volume up. But tonight, I started to notice something very strange and rather annoying. What is up with all of the promotions that NESN announcers Don […]

Batter-up with Bruno: Red Sox beat, battered, and bruised

8-mazing pitching performance If things didn’t seem bad enough for the Boston Red Sox, Clay Buchholz took a turn on the base paths and left the game with a hyper-extended knee in the top of the 2nd inning. But when it was all said and done, somehow, someway, the bullpen pulled it all together and […]

Batter-up with Bruno: Trading Ellsbury is asinine

Up, up, and Ellsway!? Now let me get this straight. There’s ‘talk’ that the Boston Red Sox want to trade away Jacoby Ellsbury this offseason?

First the buzz was all about 2003 Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay (he finished second in voting in 2008), but general […]

Welcome back to Boston Nomah

Believe it or not, it’s been five years since Boston Red Sox General Manager Theo Epstein shocked the baseball world by trading away fan favorite and five-time All-Star Nomar Garciaparra on the July 31 deadline in 2004. I specifically remember that dreadful day (at the time). I was at work all day with no access to […]
