One Mo’ Time: Rivera Sets Up AL Victory at All-Star Game in New York

If the Boston Red Sox reach the 2013 World Series, Game 1 will be played at Fenway Park. The American League won home field advantage in the Fall Classic with a 3-0 victory over the National League at Citi Field on Tuesday night. The low-scoring game was filled with good defense and better pitching, and […]

Daniel Nava Snubbed from All-Star Game

Everyone knows the great story of Daniel Nava. A similar story as Tim Thomas, Nava had to fight to get where he is today. Nava was an undrafted player, who played independent baseball through his early twenties. For most players, they grow in the minor leagues and hope to work for their chance at the […]

Video: Yankees Turn 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 Triple Play

While the Boston Red Sox had an unscheduled night off thanks to rain postponing Friday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, the New York Yankees did what the Red Sox couldn’t do the two previous nights: beat the Baltimore Orioles. It was the Yankees’ fourth straight win, improving their record to 5-4 to enter into […]

The Changing Landscape of the American League East

Buckle your seat belts, ladies and gentlemen. This is not in the AL East we’re used to any more. After a turbulent regular season, marked by the Baltimore Orioles making the playoffs and the Boston Red Sox finishing in last place, the offseason that followed has been equally hectic. A flurry of big-name acquisitions by […]

Red Sox Bats Overcome Buchholz’s Struggles in Win Over Orioles

The Red Sox are no longer in the basement of the American League East. Well, at least they’re not in the basement alone. The 8-6 win over the first place Baltimore Orioles combined with the New York Yankees loss tied the rivals with even 21-21 records for fourth place in the division. The win was […]

Red Sox Lose in 17 Innings to Orioles

The Red Sox attempted to avoid being swept by the Baltimore Orioles as they sent Clay Buchholz on the mound on Sunday. Unfortunately the game turned into a ridiculous 17-inning affair ending in a brutally painful 9-6 Sox loss. Darnell McDonald earned the loss after the Sox depleted their available bullpen options and were forced to […]

Aaron Cook Injured, Battered by Orioles in Red Sox Loss

Aaron Cook was hoping for a better first start in Boston. A much anticipated debut for the Red Sox on Saturday was shattered early, as a second inning collision with Chris Davis left a large gash in his leg. He amazingly stayed in the game, but probably would have been better off hitting the showers, […]

Red Sox Fall to Orioles in 13 Innings

On a night when the Boston Celtics defeated the Atlanta Hawks in overtime, the Boston Red Sox were playing a bit of extra baseball in what ended up being their third consecutive loss. The division rival Baltimore Orioles (16-9) were in town, looking to improve upon a strong start to their season. The ninth inning […]

Andrew Miller Looking to Find Comfort Zone in Boston

The Red Sox sure have perfected the whole “easing young starting pitchers in” routine. I like to call them the Quadruple-A starts. Try your luck at the gutter dwellers of the major leagues before testing out Sunday night baseball in the Bronx. If you can keep Robert Andino guessing in the box, maybe you’re ready […]

Crawford Gets 2 Hits, RBI in Return; Red Sox Clobber Orioles Bullpen

The Red Sox needed 16 innings to score one run Sunday night in Tampa Bay. Twenty-four hours later in Baltimore, they needed just half that to score 15. Boston broke a 7-7 tie with an eight-run eighth inning, and Carl Crawford returned to the Red Sox with two hits, two runs and an RBI. The […]

Orioles Belt Out 12 Hits as Pitchers Quiet Red Sox

There wasn’t one big hit by the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday night that the Boston Red Sox could blame for their 4-1 loss to the Orioles at Camden Yards. No, it was all the little hits that did Boston in. Twelve, to be exact. Clay Buchholz gave up four runs on 12 hits – only two […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: Outfield Diamonds in the Rough

If you like a challenge, sifting through the dozens of major league outfielders and trying to project their 2011 fantasy value should be right up your alley. There are thinner positions in the big leagues heading into this season… shortstop and third base, namely… but I always find the outfield to be the toughest to […]

Scutaro Error Proves Costly as Red Sox Fall to Orioles

Marco Scutaro’s throw sailed into right field. Boston’s playoff hopes may have sailed away with it. Scutaro’s two-base error on a throw to second base in the third inning allowed the winning run to come home in the Baltimore Orioles’ 5-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Tuesday night at Camden Yards, the Orioles struck […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 17 (7-27 – 8-2)

Would fantasy baseball be any fun if baseball was cleaned up? God knows how many players are currently hopped up on HGH or anything else that modern tests can’t detect. The most valuable player in fantasy would hit 25 HR at the most. What IF Albert Pujols is a cheater? He’d lose his fantasy baseball status […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 4 (4-27 – 5-3)

Apparently I am not the only one who believes that Kansas City’s Zack Greinke is in trouble. The good people over at Sports Illustrated have it in for the young ace as evident by the fact that they decided to put him on last week’s cover. Like many other stories of sports lore, the “Sports Illustrated […]
