Not, it's not "clear". In your own post, you stated that he sent the email "when asked", so I'll choose to take that at face value and assume it wasn't Henry who initiated this. Why hunt for some...

Actually, yes. He's an anal guy, so having that kind of answer in his head doesn't seem out of character for him at all - he's not Steinbrenner. And it makes a lot more sense than him taking the...

With the enormous difference being that this was instigated by MLB, not the Red Sox. "Press Release" implies a coordinated communication to the media initiated by the team. By your own description,...

Just to clarify, this was not a Red Sox press release, as you implied. This was an MLB employee looking for quotes for a story on MLB.com. That isn't too surprising since MLB has a vested interest...

My first thought was, "What a stupid name."

That's also my current thought.

They missed the 1915 Red Sox: Rube Foster (19-8, 2.11), Ernie Shore (19-8, 1.64), Babe Ruth (18-8, 2.44), Dutch Leonard (15-7, 2.36), Smokey Joe Wood (15-5, 1.49).

The 1910 Athletics would have been...

Probably not, unless he/she is either a huge King fan or wants to learn a bit more about how fake the culture of "The Curse" really was. For all that the book lacks, King and O'Nan are very clear in...

I got it as an early Christmas gift and read it a couple of weeks ago. It's not as bad as the review makes it out to be, but it is disappointing. There is far too much of the idiotic emailing...

That interview was classic. Chuck-full of hilarious lines. Here's one of my favorites:

"I've pitched pretty much like Schilling the last few years, if you're going to talk about durability."

Sweeney is, by all accounts, as nice a guy as you've heard. He is a bit of a religion guy, but I've not heard of any problems with that in the clubhouse. My guess is that Boomer's right - Sweeney's...

Fragility isn't the main reason I want to trade Sweeney, it's dollars. Hey, I think Harvey's a nobody too, but he's a cheap nobody, while Sweeney's salary eats one third of the Royals' current...

Mike Sweeney - Richie Sexson

Sexson's new deal with the Mariners is just shocking to me, but I now officially don't want to hear any more excuses for why the Royals don't trade Mike Sweeney. Considering that the Royals have...

Sure, let's exclude the game where Dr. Morgan failed to adequately brace the ankle and let Schilling pitch with no realistic means of driving off the mound. Let's just skip that part, and while...

Actually, I believe it was Lowe who made it easier on Schilling.

Schilling's Post-Season: 3-1, 4.36 ERA, 22.2 IP, 1.24 WHIP, 2.6 K/BB, 5.16 K/9IP

And they wouldn't have won without Lowe either. Should he get a one-year grace period too? That's silly. Why is this any different?

That's not the point - it's that missing the first month of the season was "unbeknownst" to Schilling. The guy didn't communicate that to the player until four weeks after the procedure. And that's...
