Ichiro Suzuki With His First Big Game (Red Sox vs Yankees)

Posted on 20 Aug, 2012, by in MLB

Not that he hasn’t had big games in the past, but for Ichiro Suzuki to hit his first multiple home run game, as a New York Yankee, against the Boston Red Sox, is completely different than anything else he’s done in the past with the Seattle Mariners. Like it or not, it simply means more on a national level. More

Jesus Montero Worth the Hype (Yankees vs Orioles)

Posted on 6 Sep, 2011, by in MLB

Jesus Montero was called up from the minors for hitting prowess and his ability at catcher.

CC Sabathia is 17-3 with a 2.40 ERA this season, when facing anyone but the Red Sox. Against Boston? Well, after the 5-2 win in Fenway park, making it 3-13 in the Red Sox’s favor this year (that bad, huh?). Until this win, Sabathia was 0-4 against Boston this year, with a terrible 7.40 ERA. More

Baseball Games Shouldn’t Be This Long (Yankees vs Red Sox)

Posted on 8 Aug, 2011, by in MLB

Yeah, so the Boston Red Sox got a one game lead in the AL East. Rookie Josh Reddick got the game ending single, driving home David Ortiz. Mariano Rivera blew the save, which was probably the most amazing thing about this game, leaving Phil Hughes to complete the self destruct mode and complete the Boston comeback. At that point, four hours and 15 minutes since I started watching the game, I really didn’t care anymore. More
