Catching Up With Old Friends: The 2014 Boston Red Sox

With just a month left in the MLB regular season, it’s time to reflect on the season that was, and could have been.  The Red Sox are a very different team than they were when they started the season, with players coming in and out of the clubhouse all year.  Let’s take a minute to […]

Red Sox Trade Rumors: AJ Pierzynski to Cardinals, Jon Lester to…

Caught ya! Well it didn’t take long for the Red Sox to get rid of A.J Pierzynski before someone picked him up. Reports are saying he signed with the St. Louis Cardinals. St. Louis is already plagued with problems behind the plate, as they lost Yadier Molina earlier this month to surgery after a thumb injury. […]

Red Sox DFA A.J. Pierzynski: Sign of Things to Come

In a NESN interview on Tuesday, Red Sox GM Ben Cherington admitted, “At some point, we may need to be realistic and focus on helping the 2015 team.” That time is now. It is time for all of us to be realistic. They aren’t closing the gap. The Sox have struggled all year, and the […]

Four Red Sox Ejected, But Pierzynski Delivers Walk-Off Win Over Rays

After the brawl between the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays last Sunday at Tropicana Field, some carryover shenanigans between the AL East rivals would have gotten lower odds than California Chrome to win the Belmont Stakes. Still, one would think two professional baseball teams could avoid having tempers escalate as quickly as an […]

Bats Come Alive During Red Sox Turnaround

Twenty-six runs scored over a ten game span is bad, that is an average of 2.6 runs per game. A barren wasteland of offensive production. No wonder the Sox lost ten games in a row. In the last three games the Sox have averaged six runs per game. Not surprisingly, with that level of offensive firepower, […]

Video: Brock Holt Shows Off Reflexes with Web Gem Off Pierzynski’s Glove

I stand by what I said in yesterday’s post that Brock Holt is not the answer at third base (who is?) for the Boston Red Sox. That said, in case you missed it, Holt did make a pretty sweet catch in foul territory against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday Night Baseball, with an unintentional assist from catcher AJ […]

Johnny Manziel Visits Red Sox Spring Training Camp

With the 2014 NFL Draft approaching, everyone is wondering what jersey Johnny Manziel will don. Will it be the Houston Texans with the #1 overall pick? The Jacksonville Jaguars? How about the Boston Red Sox? Johnny Football temporarily switched allegiances on Saturday when he visited the team’s facilities in Fort Myers, sporting a #2 Red […]

Ben Cherington Conservative Again with Off-Season Approach

As teams continue to open their wallets and dish out big dollars this off-season, the Boston Red Sox remain conservative in their approach. In spite of losing center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury to free agency and potentially losing shortstop Stephen Drew as well, GM Ben Cherington seems to be replicating his off-season game plan from last […]

A.J. Pierzynski Deal Meant End of Jarrod Saltalamacchia in Boston

It seemed as if yesterday the baseball gods wanted every player on the market to go, well at least from the catcher’s perspective. A.J. Pierzynski inked a one-year deal with the Boston Red Sox worth about $8.25 million early on Tuesday morning. The former Texas Ranger hit .272 with 17 home runs and 70 RBI […]

Red Sox Sign Pierzynski to One-Year Deal, Say Goodbye to Saltalamacchia

It’s December 3rd, 2013, and the World Champion Boston Red Sox have finally made their first foray into the free agent market. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported this morning that the Red Sox have signed backstop AJ Pierzynski, signaling the end to the Jarrod Saltalamacchia era. As the details of the contract were slowly […]

Catching Market Dwindling for Red Sox

Carlos Ruiz? The Red Sox were interested but not for more than two years, so he went to the Phillies. Brian McCann? Big name, big bat, and he seemed like a good fit, but it came down to years again, so he’ll be in pinstripes for the foreseeable future. Jose Molina resigned with the Rays, […]
