I came into this season with no expectations for the Red Sox. The September crash 2011 and the disaster that was the entire Bobby-Valentine-led 2012 season had squashed my hope in the Sox, and I bashed every move they made in the offseason. My only hopes for the 2013 season were to finish in fourth instead of last and see if prospects Jackie Bradley Jr. More »

Hi SI Kids, as many of you know I spent my summer continuing my quest to go to all 30 MLB ballparks. This summer I traveled to Cincinnati, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Miami, and Tampa Bay.
