    It’s been less than nine months since the Red Sox hoisted the World Series trophy and less than eight months since general manager Ben Cherington won the Executive of the Year award, but with the team sitting at 43-52 he’s already started to apologize for this year’s product.

    Mike Napoli stole home. Though, really, we should call what he did something else. Also: are we at “Peak Brandon” in Major League Baseball?

    Jun 22, 2014, 10:48 PM EDT

    David Ortiz, Derek Norris

    Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 11.34.58 AM

    You’d think a Hall of Fame caliber player with multiple World Series rings would let a lone judgment call by an official scorer go. If so, you’d think wrong.

    Jun 19, 2014, 6:17 AM EDT

    Jun 13, 2014, 6:47 AM EDT

    Puig Out

    I took the kids to the Dodgers-Reds game and they saw Yasiel Puig flop about three feet from the second base bag on a caught stealing. Still: beats working.
