Former Red Sox (Kinda) Adam LaRoche Kills Catamount

Okay, so Adam LaRoche appeared all of six games with the Boston Red Sox during the 2009 season, one of three teams he played for that year. The Red Sox acquired him from the Pittsburgh Pirates before the trade deadline, only to flip him to the Atlanta Braves nine days later. He accrued five hits […]

Michael Morse Best Option for Red Sox if Mike Napoli Deal Falls Through

Michael Morse is one of the few options remaining in the trade market that the Boston Red Sox should make a run after. The Washington Nationals recently signed Adam LaRoche to a two-year deal, and he will be manning first base instead of Morse. The Red Sox would still need to give a couple solid […]

What Will Happen if the Red Sox Can’t Sign Mike Napoli?

A little over a month ago, the Boston Red Sox agreed to terms with slugger Mike Napoli to be their primary first baseman with a 3-year, $39mm dollar deal, and yet there has been no formal press conference, no real news, and much speculation as to why this deal is not finalized. On the surface, […]

Would Lance Berkman Make a Good Addition for the Red Sox?

One of the Red Sox needs this season is a first baseman. There are several options, including Mike Napoli and Adam LaRoche. Playing at Fenway Park, Napoli has a .462 average, while LaRoche has a .083 average. Napoli is seen as the better option because he dominates at Fenway and he has flexibility around the field. But according to […]

White Sox Decline Option on Youkilis; Should Red Sox Bring Him Back?

The Chicago White Sox recently declined the $13 million option for the 2013 season on Kevin Youkilis. After all that transpired over the 2012 season for Youkilis, it is very hard to imagine him back in a Red Sox uniform. However, the idea isn’t all that crazy, and may be downright logical. The Red Sox […]

Red Sox Fall to Nationals in Dice-K’s Return

Before the Celtics tip off tonight against the Miami Heat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Boston sports fans were treated with a similarly unpredictable event: the return of Daisuke Matsuzaka to the major leagues after a year removed because of Tommy John surgery. He showed good stuff for the most part, but […]

Ortiz, Buchholz Help Sox Top D-Backs

This may surprise you, but the Red Sox actually played a game on Tuesday night, as they hosted the Arizona Diamondbacks for the first of a three-game series at Fenway Park. Before you get bored…you may actually want to continue reading, as the result on Yawkey Way was not nearly as disappointing as the one […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 24 (9-14 – 9-20)

It is finals time in the SoB baseball league. This begins a two-week struggle to decide the champion of the league. Hopefully you were one of the lucky few out there to be battling it out for a championship. I once again will be watching from the sidelines. If you made it to the show, […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 20 (8-17 – 8-23)

In last week’s wrap-up, I mentioned how I wanted Henry Rowengartner from the film “Rookie of the Year” as my fantasy closer. Now, if I had to choose the best fictitious hitter to have on my roster, it would probably have to be Pedro Cerrano from “Major League”. Oh, and I don’t mean the Buddhist […]

Beltre Back With Something to Prove

Now that the Major League trade deadline has come and gone, most of us have just started to take our fingers off the ice packs. Ask any doctor, there’s only so much refreshing of a website that one’s fingers can take. This is why I have trained to use all of my fingers to click […]

Indians Trade Catcher Victor Martinez to Red Sox, LaRoche Dealt to Atlanta

After days of speculation and with just minutes to spare, Boston.com reports that the Cleveland Indians have finally traded All-Star catcher Victor Martinez to the Boston Red Sox in exchange for pitchers Justin Masterson, Nick Hagadone, and Bryan Price. Right after that, the Sox dealt newly acquired 1B Adam LaRoche to the Atlanta Braves in exchange for 1B Casey […]

Sox Bats Starting to Wake Up?

The Red Sox suffered quite the overall team slump when it came to hitting the ball this past week. The end of the Blue Jays series and trip to Texas saw the Sox lose four times in a row (five times overall) and fall out of first place, behind the Yankees. However, the bats finally […]

Boston Knocks Out O’s at Fenway

The Red Sox are back. After a shaky stretch following the All-Star break, the Red Sox won a close game against the Orioles  Friday night, and then continued their dominance against Baltimore Saturday night with a solid 7-2 victory. The win comes off 7.1 innings of nine-strikeout, two-run pitching from Jon Lester. Every batter for […]

Red Sox Designate Kotsay for Assignment

With Adam LaRoche coming to the Red Sox, something had to give. Apparently, that was Mark Kotsay, who was designated for assignment Friday. The Sox now have 10 days to trade or release him. Kotsay, 33, is hitting .257 one home run and five RBI in 27 games. The Red Sox have really struggled at […]

Here’s a weekly a column taking a look at the top five sports events this past week that left us all asking the question “Did that just happen?” In no particular order… Tim Wakefield placed on 15-day DL Biggest surprise of the week? It was to me – I certainly didn’t see this coming. But […]
