Some noteworthy stories from around the web for Red Sox fans:
- Back in April, who’d have believed that the final week of Red Sox baseball, facing the Rays and the Yankees, would consist of essentially meaningless games? The Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo soberly wraps it up, “Enjoy the Jeter celebration, because that’s all there is. This homestand is mercifully the last stand for one of the worst Red Sox teams you’ll ever see.”
- So much promise, so little delivered. That’s the wrap up in 2014 for Will Middlebrooks. Over the Monster says the Red Sox can’t go into 2015 with Middlebrooks as their primary third baseman—and I agree.
- The Red Sox have come up with a way to shoehorn in another 160 Fenway seats, part of an estimated $4.2 million in proposed improvements.
