About

Born into a family of crazy sports fans, I have taken Boston fan-dum to a whole new level. Growing up, I didn't read James and the Giant Peach or Clifford the Big Red Dog. No, my reading was Baseball Digest, The National and Sports Illustrated.

Who in their right mind grew up a Dave Stapleton fan? First off, does anyone know him? Former Boston Red Sox utility infielder, who hit .328 his rookie year and caught the final out of Game 5 in the 1986 ALCS. His career was done in 1987. Yes, that was my idol. Of course I was a fan of the Birds, Bourques and Neely's of the world.

I've been told that 'Fever Pitch' is an autobiography of my life. Come to 'Dan-town' and witness for yourself.

So why am I doing this? It's a life long dream to write about sports and something that I have always looked for ways to do so. I went to Siena College and the closest I could come to Journalism was a BA in English.

    For all of those out there who say baseball should have a salary cap, prepare to have some knowledge dropped on you.

    Pedro Martinez's activity during All-Star week has not been the type I would have once predicted. What about you?

    Hey Dan, I just posted a new piece on the Ramirez-Beckett deal from three years ago. I think you will find it interesting.
