Wade Boggs feels ‘back home’ as Red Sox retire his No. 26 at Fenway Park

“I’m proud of it,” Boggs said of the ’96 Yankees’ ring. “But I didn’t feel like it was appropriate today being that it’s my day, it’s my number and everything like that. So I left it off.”

ESPN edited Curt Schilling out of its 30 for 30 episode on the ‘04 Red Sox and people are mad.

Four Days in October is an ESPN 30 for 30 series film that first aired in 2010. It aired again yesterday, in slightly edited format, and dopey Red Sox fans teamed up with dopey conservatives to form a coalition of derp in protesting what they believed to be a conspiracy against recently fired analyst Curt Schilling.

Borges: In David Ortiz vs. Ted Williams, the edge goes to Ted

For the majority of Red Sox fans, Ted Williams stands alone. He is not only the greatest hitter in team history, he is arguably the greatest hitter who ever lived. It is a goal he once set for himself, one many in baseball believe he achieved. Who would quarrel with that?

Perhaps the newest generation of Sox fans, the millennials, for whom 10 years ago is considered the Pleistocene Epoch? To them, no one ever has swung the bat or ruled the Sox like David Ortiz. He is their Ted, with better jewelry.
