Will Cody Ross be the Next Short-Term Acquisition to Walk Away in Free Agency?

With the signing of Shane Victorino to a three-year contract and Ben Cherington’s insistence that Jacoby Ellsbury is the center fielder, Cody Ross has become the odd man out in the Red Sox outfield. In order for Boston to truly have a shot at bringing him back, they would have to offer him at minimum (as a […]

Beckett, Red Sox Lose Slugfest to Rangers

The Boston Red Sox were out slugged by the Texas Rangers 10-9 in the last game of this 10-game home stand. The Red Sox battled back throughout the ballgame and tied the game at 9-9 after a three run home run by Will Middlebrooks, his 15th of the year. Former Red Sox Adrian Beltre drove […]

Mike Aviles’s Bloop Single in 9th Propels Red Sox Past Rangers

When the Texas Rangers tied the game in the sixth inning at one run a piece, the game certainly had the feel of another loss for the Boston ball club in what has been a difficult 2012 season. However, if there’s one thing we’ve learned about the team this year, it’s that they always manage […]

Revisiting the 2010-2011 Red Sox Offseason

I am not a fan of Theo Esptein. I always found him arrogant and overrated during his tenure in Boston. I will always remember how the sports media of Boston gave his White House snub a pass while they attacked Tim Thomas for weeks on end. He deserves credit for helping refine Dan Duquette’s underachieving […]

Should the Red Sox Trade Kevin Youkilis?

In the wake of the dramatic September collapse by the Boston Red Sox, a sea of changes has come in waves, one after another: manager Terry Francona is gone, general manager Theo Epstein has departed for Chicago, Ben Cherington was announced as the new GM, and John Lackey will undergo Tommy John surgery. Amid these […]

Kinsler and Hamilton Each Drive in Three as Rangers Crush Red Sox

If the Red Sox and Rangers face each other in the playoffs, the scorekeepers had best prepare: there will be runs, and lots of them. Sunday afternoon at Fenway was no exception. The Rangers banged out 15 hits and 11 runs against John Lackey and the Red Sox bullpen Sunday, winning the game and the […]

Fielder HRs, NL Pitchers Shutdown AL to Win All-Star Game; Beckett Hurt

Adrian Gonzalez may have out-homered Milwaukee’s Prince Fielder at the Home Run Derby, but Fielder’s home run mattered most Tuesday night at the 82nd All-Star Game at Chase Stadium in Phoenix. Fielder’s three-run home run off Texas’ C.J. Wilson in the fourth inning drove in the winning runs, and National League pitchers limited American League […]

Red Sox 2011 Third Base Preview: Kevin Youkilis

We continue our week-long series of previews with former first baseman and now-third baseman Kevin Youkilis. I’ve recently figured out why Kevin Youkilis is so popular. It’s not his bat. It’s not that he plays the game with reckless, Patrick Ewing-level sweaty abandon. It’s that most men in Boston look like him. We see him in us. […]

Red Sox Meet with Boras, Werth; Remain Interested in Beltre

On the heels of meeting with Carl Crawford in Houston Wednesday, the Red Sox free agent search moved ahead at full steam on Thursday. According to Yahoo! Sports’ Tim Brown the Sox are meeting with “agent to the stars” Scott Boras to discuss two of his biggest clients this offseason: Adrian Beltre and Jayson Werth. […]

Carl Crawford to the Red Sox? – Brass Meets OF in Texas

If the reports are indicative of what’s to come, the Red Sox won’t be seeing Carl Crawford steal six bases against them in one game again. Red Sox brass and the free agent outfielder reportedly met on Wednesday at Crawford’s Houston, Texas home. Yahoo! Sports’ Tim Brown was the first to break the story via his […]

Boston Red Sox 2010 Report Card: Infield

More than a full month after the end of the World Series, Sports of Boston brings you the final report card for the Red Sox. In this installment, we take a look at the infield. All the time in the world may not be enough to analyze the 2010 Red Sox infield, which is marred […]

Bring Back Adrian Beltre!

The best Red Sox third baseman of this millennium declined his player option on Wednesday and will become a free agent. Adrian Beltre walked away from a guaranteed $10 million, believing he can get more on the free agent market. Theo Epstein has said publicly that while he wants to bring Beltre back, he also […]

Clinging to Last Hope, Red Sox Beat White Sox 6-1

After Sunday’s demoralizing loss to the New York Yankees, nearly all hope for the playoffs was lost. The magic number for both the Yankees and Rays to clinch the playoffs was at 1 heading into Monday’s games. Again, the resilient Red Sox bounced back to stave off elimination, and beat the White Sox in Chicago […]

Red Sox Hold Off Yankees Again For 7-3 Win

Behind the masterful performance of Jon Lester, the Red Sox took down the Pinstripes 7-3 on Saturday in New York. Lester, who will be gunning for win #20 in his final start of the year, had a perfect game through 4.0 innings and a no-no through 5.1. He only gave up two hits to go […]

Lowrie Powers Red Sox Past Yankees in Slugfest

Josh Beckett entered Friday night’s game looking to chase the demons and beat the Yankees on their own turf. With a heavy curveball and a low-90′s fastball with movement, Beckett stymied the Yanks through the first five innings, allowing just one run on a Curtis Granderson blast in the third. As has been the case […]
