Weekly News

Well, after today's loss to the Rangers, the Red Sox are now 0-3 on the week and the season. Despite that, in our first week of the season, our Player of the Week is reigning Player of the Year David Ortiz (right), as he's gotten off to a fast start, going .333/2/3 in his first 3 games. It was a tough decision between him and Adrian Gonzalez (.385/0/3) but I decided on Papi based on his clutch hitting so far, and his RBIs have been spread out over more than one game. I'm going to add a few new features, and while these will not affect the Player of the Year, they will be fun for now. Pitcher of the Week goes to Dennys Reyes, who despite only haven pitched 1 2/3 innings, has unfortunately probably been the best pitcher, his stats are 0-0/0.00/1 in 1 2/3 innings. Performance of the Week goes to Adrian Gonzalez on Opening Day (4/1/11) as he went 2-4 with 3 RBIs to help lead his team. Finally, game of the week goes to Opening Day, where the Sox lost 9-5, but played a good game, including a game-tying homer in the 8th by David Ortiz. I'm sad the Sox are 0-3, but I hope we can turn that around against the Indians and Yankees in the upcoming week.


  1. Oof. That was a hard series, especially after the anticipation following all the new acquisitions this off-season. But then again, they were up against the reigning AL champs. They'll find their stride soon . . .

  2. undoubtedly, it hurt- but it's early. and there were indicators of good things to come- you pointed out ortiz, but don't ignore gonzalez who, despite today's lackluster showing, really brought some good stuff to the plate this weekend. it's early. i still think we can take it to soxtober.

  3. @ TooSoxy, if it wasn't for Gonzalez's lackluster performance, he would've won the Player of the week.
