My daughter WILL be a Red Sox fan

On Monday morning, I received a phone call telling me I was about to have a baby. After rushing to the hospital, I got into the room in time for the baby to be born. Three hours after finding out I was having a baby, I was holding my beautiful daughter Karen Audrey.

Another podcast with my father

This time, my father and I discussed some more current Red Sox news and stories. We began with the 2007 World Series, moved to the 2013 Series, which was probably some of the most intense baseball I'll ever see, and eventually to this season's players.

A podcast with my father

For my first podcast, I talked to my father, a lifetime Red Sox fan and the person that got me interested in baseball.

In the podcast, we talked about how he became a Red Sox fan, stopped watching baseball, and began again years later. Originally this was supposed to be an interview with a lot of back and forth, but my dad actually took over and did a great job describing his fandom.

This whole conversation easily could have gone on for hours, and 10 more minutes of it will happen in the my next conversation with my father.

Sox shake things up and it looks good

Mary Schwalm / Associated Press

The Red Sox have shaken up the roster a little bit in the last few days. Blake Swihart was sent down to AAA and Christian Vazquez was recalled.

The rest of the moves were with pitchers. Noe Ramirez was sent down and Heath Hembree was called up and pitched well in his first appearance, throwing 3.2 innings and striking out four. Joe Kelly was also added to the 15 day DL with a shoulder injury.

The 2016 Red Sox: Fun and Frustrating

Ron Schwane / Associated Press

Two weeks into the 2016 season and all I can really say about this iteration of the Red Sox is that they're fun to watch. Frustrating, but fun. I am actually yelling at my TV as I write this during today's game.

Red Sox Opening Day has many positive implications

Tony Dejak / Associated Press

It's finally Opening Day for the Red Sox! I'm happily writing this as I watch the game. After a postpone due to snow and cold weather on Monday, the Sox took the field this afternoon against the Cleveland Indians.

The game-time temperature was still pretty cold, at 33 degrees,  the players are all bundled up, David Ortiz was even wearing a hoodie at the beginning of the game.

The Red Sox have some tough roster decisions coming up

Tony Gutierrez / Associated Press

Opening Day is on Sunday, April 3. It's one of my favorite days of the year, and I plan on watching baseball all day long. Starting pitchers are being announced throughout the league, and roster moves are being made.

The Red Sox had a pretty easy decision when announcing the Opening Day starter in David Price, which we knew since the day he was signed.
