A South Weymouth man faces charges in two states for allegedly trying to sell stolen Fenway equipment - and Dustin Pedroia's cleats - on a sports-memorabilia auction site.
Jamie Pritchard-Holland, 32, is charged in Boston Municipal Court with two counts of receiving stolen property, specifically, a 380-foot marker from center field, a home plate from the visitor's bullpen, the cleats and Kevin Youkilis's glove, all stolen in April 2010, our Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Faced with a sub-.500 team, Beth resorts to other means to enjoy games, such as Entertainment Value Above Replacement:
As an example of this metric in action, Dustin Pedroia's epic at-bat on Monday night gave him a high EVAR, regardless of whether it led to a win.
Red Sock can't figure out the difference:
... [B]oth young players had bone fractures, both returned ahead of schedule, both experienced additional pain or re-injury, and both returned to the DL. Yet the media presentation of their experiences could not be more different: we are told one is a malingering whiner allegedly hated by his teammates while the other is the very personification of a gritty gamer.
Because, naturally, Dustin Pedroia is back on the DL.
UPDATE: After watching the first seven innings of tonight's game, I wonder if the Sox could use a visit from the Higginbottoms. Oh, and NESN? No more Bill O'Reilly ever again, mkay? Never mind his politics; he didn't even know who Daniel Nava was.
Rob Munstis, who sells T-shirts in Kenmore after Sox games, reports on his encounter with some Pedroias last night.
Peter Abraham: Scutaro signs on with Sox.
Dan Tobin: Masochist or hero?
Knowing that Dustin Pedroia is sticking around for awhile.
Dustin Pedroia was named the 2008 AL MVP by the MLB Sportswriters today. This is only the third time that a player has won the Rookie of Year award and then the league MVP award in back-to-back seasons. The other two players to do so were Cal Ripken, Jr. and Ryan Howard. In his two years in the league, Pedroia has now won Rookie of the Year, a World Series ring, a Golden Glove, a Silver Slugger, and MVP. Teammate Kevin Youkilis came in third in the voting behind Minnesota's Justin Morneau.
Even aside from the fact that we don't ever have to see them wearing salmon jackets against dusky rose backgrounds (or whatever the hell that was), they don't make up crappy nicknames for Sox players.
President of awesome, that is?
Beth recaps his first ejection, along with all the hot Coco action in the outfield.
Kristen considers Matsuzaka's performance:
... Honestly, "pitching out of jams all night" should probably be Matsuzaka's middle name. So much does he love loading the bases and working full counts and walking guys that, by all reason, should have struck out, that it's a wonder to me that he's actually 15-2. Which is also why I called Lester the team's ace yesterday. It's just...even Tito thinks watching Matsuzaka pitch is frustrating. That was his word, "frustrating." Probably because you can't swear on TV. Unless you're Josh Beckett apparently. ...
