Boston Red Sox
Being a Sox fan...
I consider myself a member of Red Sox Nation since 1990,
or to be precise, since game 4 of the ALCS vs Oakland.
After many years of suffering, we were rewarded for our faith
with championships in 2004 and 2007.
Because I'm living in Europe, I obviously have no chance
to attend games regularly.
But fortunately, there are other ways to follow the Sox:
I use for game results, recaps, standings and news. They also
provide regular columns from some good writers, including
my favourite columnist Rob Neyer.
The Red Sox
mailing list, currently administrated by
the unique opportunity to learn the opinions of a number
of diehard BoSox fans, some of which are also great 'statheads'.
DIEHARD, the fan magazine for Red Sox fans, which is mailed
monthly. I own an overseas suscription to it.
mail order site
distributes videos of MLB games (as well as other sports).
So I got to see for example game 6 of the '75 series, game 6
of the '86 series, Pedro's 17k-one hitter at Yankee Stadium in
September of '99 and games 4 and 5 of the '99 ALDS vs Cleveland.
And of course there's
MLB TV which I subscribe to. Now, if time permits, I'm able to watch every game live or
with a few hours delay.
Red Sox Links
There is the
official Red Sox website, provided by the club itself.
Globe has a Red Sox section.
Journal also features regular Red Sox columns.
- Some current or former
players have pages dedicated to them, for example
Carl 'Yaz' Yastrzemski and
Dirt Dogs has become my favourite Red Sox site in the last
few month. They feature daily updates for results, box scores, columns
and much more. The site's a shrine to 'dirt dog' players like Trot
Nixon and Brian Daubach.
In my spare time, I like to do some baseball-related analysis and
research, especially in the statistical aspects of the game. If you're
a 'stathead' too, have a look at my baseball
Misc baseball Links
Of course, there are unnumbered baseball related sites on the web.
Here I list a few which I came to know and found usefull for one
reason or another:
for American Baseball Research, SABR is the holy grail of
all statheads. I'm a member of SABR since early 2001.
The online section of Total Baseball has up to date stats. See also
my books section for my two cents on
Lahman's Baseball Archive is a database for all players and
teams of all Major Leagues (including e.g. the Federal League)
since their beginnings. A download version is also available.
I used this to set up a MySQL database with a FORMS/CGI
Interface (so far not available on the web).
The official MLB site offers e.g. the rules of
, provided by Keith Woolner is also a rich source of
information for us statheads.
