Sox Therapy: The Dombrowski Method
When I watch baseball I always like to think about why teams do something. I would rather figure out why Jonny Gomes starts over Daniel Nava than complain that the manager is a moron or why Josh Reddick gets traded for Andrew Bailey than whine about the GM. That’s not to say that I never voice those complaints but I always like to have a handle on what teams are doing.
In the case of the Red Sox I think Dave Dombrowski’s tenure is quickly coming into focus. For many years we had Theo ...Read More...

Gonfalon Cubs: Screw the Closer
I’ve seen a couple of joking references to this on Twitter during various games, so I found it pretty amusing the Cubs actively talk about it:

Gonfalon Cubs: As I Was Saying…
Where were we…oh, that’s right. It’s good to be back. My goal is to have something up at least once a week, but I’m sure we’ll have plenty to talk about this year.
Since the last post on this blog, appropriately titled “I Am Fine with This”, a lot has happened. And then it’s been rehashed, and rehashed, and rehashed yet again. Regardless of your opinion on *how* we got here

Sox Therapy: We Still Know Nothin’
No I didn’t go anywhere, why do you ask?
So the Sox are a couple weeks into the season and so far…I don’t think we know anything particularly new. When the season began I felt this was an 83-79, third place team. I like the offense but I had concerns about a few of the down order hitters and I was more troubled about the bullpen than most people.
