2012 Blockbuster Trade a Big Win for Red Sox and Dodgers

When the Boston Red Sox visit the Los Angeles Dodgers this weekend, the anniversary of the blockbuster trade the teams agreed upon last summer will remind us of how far both sides have come in rebuilding greatness.

Is David Ortiz the Achilles’ Heel for the Red Sox?

When the Boston Red Sox signed slugger David Ortiz to a two-year deal for $26 million, a gentle quiver traveled across Red Sox Nation.

Carl Crawford’s Comments About Boston Media Far From the Truth

Carl Crawford is starting to become one of those players that is a huge bust, no matter where he ends up. Crawford began his career in quiet Tampa Bay, where the media coverage is minimal. He typically didn’t have to face the music too often with the media during his time there, even if he […]

Heading into the 2013 season, the Red Sox are determined to turn things around and get back on top of a competitive American League East division.

The Boston Red Sox enter the 2013 season with unexpected uncertainty regarding first base, after trading away slugger Adrian Gonzalez at the trading deadline this past year.

What Should the Red Sox do with Alfredo Aceves?

It’s safe to say that the 2012 season for the Red Sox was a complete disaster, from the Bobby Valentine drama to the departures of several key players, including Kevin Youkilis, Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett.

When the news broke on August 24 that the Red Sox would be shedding Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford AND Adrian Gonzalez’s contracts, the first thought on most observers’ mind was “What’s the catch?” Much to everyone’s surprise, there was none.

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.
