Allow myself to introduce … myself.

Thanks very much to the Fs for giving me this opportunity. I’m a writer by trade, so I’ll try to keep the typos and embarrassments to a minimum.

As you’ve probably been able to tell from my comments, I’m a Red Sox fan by birth (my father fell in love with the ’67 team, especially Yaz, and passed it on to me), originally from Connecticut, now in Texas, where people still talk more about the Cowboys than any other sports franchise. My first memory as a Red Sox fan is, appropriately, crying because they lost to the A’s in the ALCS. This also makes me fairly young. My first favorite player was Wade Boggs.

Otherwise, I just love to watch and follow baseball. It’s been fun discovering and participating in this blog. Hopefully, I’ll help add to the reasoned debate this site prides itself in. And that debate, of course is: Are the Red Sox a lot better than the Yankees or insanely better than the Yankees?

Talk amongst yourselves.

  • My vote goes to insanely, but I’m biased.

  • I wonder if Beckett is going to try to be “friendly” w/ Howard tommorrow a la spring training style. If Howard gets plunked it will be interesting. If I was Beckett I’d try to avoid having that big mo’ fo’ charge me on the mound.

  • I don’t think beckett will plunk Howard intentionally, but I also don’t think he will be afraid to pitch him in. We’ll just have to see what goes down tomorrow.
    Oh, and congrats on the promotion, Paul.

  • Beckett would serve himself and the Sox better if he did not pitch Howard inside. Howard is a pull hitter who can turn on an inside fastball and send it bye-bye. If Beckett paints the outside corners against Howard he’ll be more effective at keeping him inside the park or hitting the ball period.
