As the game moves along, I’m loving the pitching of a ‘professional’ pitcher like Hisanori Takahashi. In Fenway, Bay would have hit that ball out… I was on my laptop when AP sports alert came across that had a story from AP Sports reporter Kristie Rieken about Roy Oswalt and his agent officially requesting a trade from […]
