What a confusing headline! So many uppers and downers that we all might end up on the ground in confusion! Of course, that’s what happens when a small snowball (Doug Fister lasting four innings…) begins to build (…which means the bullpen was used for five innings…) and build (…and therefore is on short supply…) and […]

If not for a third inning bunt single at the hands—errr, bat of Elliot Johnson, Rick Porcello might have had a chance at baseball immortality. Or maybe not, but still, it’s fun to speculate; up to that point, Porcello had not allowed a baserunner. Porcello got Will Rhymes to ground out—Johnson moved up to third […]
