Henry Owens will make his major league debut on Tuesday against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

Cleveland’s starting rotation includes reigning Cy […]
Boston Red Sox Vice President Allard Baird was spotted at Sunday’s game in Philadelphia to watch Cole Hamels post-All Star Break start versus the Miami Marlins. Boston appears to still be interested in making a trade before July 31 for the Philadelphia Phillies, left-hander starter, despite his last two lackluster starts. Hamels averaged three innings […]
Brock Holt has been named to the American League All-Star team. The public may continue to vote, leaving the possibility for Xander Bogaerts to be voted on the team, too. The 27-year-old hitter is the only player from the Boston Red Sox scheduled to travel to Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati to participate in […]
Rick Porcello does not belong on the mound of any major league ballpark. No one in their right mind would put a pitcher in their starting rotation that owns a 6.08 ERA. A 6.00 + ERA, this is insane. Right? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. […]

Major League Baseball cancelled 60-65 million All-star game votes due to a high percentage of votes going to Kansas City Royals players. Can the MLB do this? Is it fair?

I am no witch, but I am starting to believe that the Red Sox did not reverse the curse in 2004. Or, if they did, the Red Sox somehow put a new curse in place? They re-cursed themselves. Could it have been the 2012 blockbuster trade with the Los Angeles Dodger’s Trade that re-cursed us? […]
The Boston Red Sox acquired outfielder Alejandro De Aza from the Batltimore Orioles on Wednesday, June 3rd. This is yet another questionable trade decision made this season by the Boston management team. The De Aza acquisition is confounding. Where does De Aza go on the major league team? He is not much better defensively (dWAR -2) […]
Adjustments. Adjusting. Adjust. This was the overused word uttered by Red Sox owner, John Henry, during Tuesday’s press conference. Prognosis: Delusional Is he watching the same team that the rest of us are? He could not have been more vague when it came down to what management is trying to do to combat what seems […]
