Tag Archives: Boston Red Sox

Released

If it is with utter shock, then don’t be surprised that the Red Sox have decided to let potential Hall of Famer John Smoltz go. Red Sox GM Theo Epstein personally flew to New York to break the news to him. I would call it a career.

The A’s also decided to part ways with Jason Giambi. Being on the DL and having the lowest batting average (.198) in the majors didn’t help. However, he still might be able to help a club in the middle of a pennant race. But, it won’t be the Yankees.

Until then, see ya at the park!

Dugout Notes & Quotes

The series of all series is this weekend with the Yankees taking on the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Interesting story in Long Island Newsday that Joe Girardi is fighting to keep his job, while Terry Francona doesn’t have to worry about his job. On my radio show Baseball Talk I stated that Girardi has until the middle of the season and then he’s out. I stand by my statement.


Looks like Xavier Nady will not need surgery, but just rehab on his arm. Good news for the Yankees. They are also set to put Chien-Ming Wang on the DL and see if they can help him with  his mechanics.
