Baseball writers missing boat on Sox starters

Pitching has been outstanding in Florida

(Continued)

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.

Ed Warnshuis has B.S. from Emerson College (’65), worked for 30 years in sales and marketing with Agfa/Compugraphic and spent the last 13 years doing community action work in Lawrence. He founded “Stand and Deliver — Corporate Campus Mentoring,” presently working with Lawrence High principal Paul Neal on a Peer Mentoring program at Lawrence High. He has been married 47 years to his wife Joan. They have two daughters and three grand children.

Editor's note: Periodically, throughout the season, will run columns by readers on the Red Sox in 2013. If you have an idea or column, send it to Eagle-Tribune sports editor Bill Burt at bburt@eagletribune.com.
