Jed Lowrie jammed his thumb sliding back into second base today. Show of hands from everyone who's surprised by this development? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

He did something wrong in a prior life. confused.gif


--------------------
The young Bill James rather famously wrote that he could not find any evidence that certain types of players could consistently hit better in the clutch – he still has not found that evidence. But unlike his younger self, he will not dismiss the idea of clutch hitting. He has been a consultant for the Red Sox for more than a decade, and he has watched David Ortiz deliver so many big hits in so many big moments, and he finds himself unwilling to deny that Big Papi does have an ability in those situations others don’t have.

Buckley and The boomer

Buckley at his best, and a fun read when we're so focused on the season ahead.

“I still love the Red Sox. I have DirecTV and never miss a game. When they play great, I feel great. When they play bad, I feel bad.”
Noting that he also played for the Milwaukee Brewers and had brief stints with the Royals and Yankees at the end of his career, the Boomer said, “I don’t watch the Brewers. I don’t watch the Royals. I don’t watch the Yankees. But I watch the Red Sox, every pitch.”

I would have to avert my eyes, but this is one old Sox that I couldn't be mad at for lack of loyalty

So he'll be nearby for Spring Training. Maybe CHB can go interview him about The Ball. Again.
