I grew up in Los Angeles watching the Dodgers win tight, one-run ball games all summer.
It’s hard to believe this could happen at Fenway Park, but with these five guys and manager John Farrell at the helm, it just may.
As a bonus, faster games could be on the way. Farrell has a stopwatch in the bullpen.
When the bases are empty, his pitchers have 20 seconds to throw the ball. I’m exciting. You should be too if you’re a Red Sox fan.
I wonder if the Knights of the Keyboard should do a little more homework rather than rely on the past.
