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.
