Where Are They Now? How Former Red Sox Have Fared in the 2014 MLB Postseason

I thought, perhaps naively, that the disgrace and disgust of the 2014 Boston Red Sox season would end with Game 162. I was wrong. The reminders of the Red Sox season that (I wish) never was have been everywhere throughout the 2014 MLB postseason. The Baltimore Orioles and Kansas City Royals, two non-playoff teams last year, both […]

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 […]

Flurry of trades leaves Red Sox in state of uncertainty

If you weren’t sure how to react to the four trades made by the Boston Red Sox on Thursday, you certainly weren’t alone. Across social media and sports talk radio, opinions ranged from high praise for the acquisition of Cuban slugger Yoenis Céspedes to outrage over the lack of a long-term return for ace Jon Lester. […]

Red Sox Trade Andrew Miller for Top 100 Prospect Rodriguez

The Boston Red Sox have traded Andrew Miller to the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for minor league, left-handed pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez. Rodriguez was a top 100 prospect, and ranked as one of the top five prospects in the Orioles minor league system before the start of 2014 season. He pitched this season at the Double-A […]

A Red Sox Bullpen in Arrears

The Red Sox bullpen was once thought to be a strength but is now the only thing holding this team back. As we approach the mid-season classic, the Sox stand at 57-37 with a 3.5 game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays. While few analysts predicted it, the Boston Red Sox are among baseball’s best […]

Red Sox Pitcher Andrew Miller Done for Season with Left Foot Injury

Red Sox Rebound After Tough 1st Inning To Defeat Astros

At first glance, the Red Sox didn’t look to be doing well out of the gate, but from the second glance onward, everything was fine, and the Red Sox dispatched the Houston Astros 8-4 to clinch the series and the best record in majors (17-7). After all, when you start off the game by giving […]

2013 Red Sox Depth Chart: Bullpen – Joel Hanrahan, Andrew Bailey, Others

The Boston Red Sox had a pretty solid bullpen for most of the 2012 season. There were times when Alfredo Aceves, Andrew Bailey and other relievers had trouble closing out the game, but, overall, the entire bullpen put together one of the better ERAs in the AL. In 2013, the Red Sox have added a […]

Clay Buchholz’s Hamstring Another Cause for Concern for Red Sox Staff

Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz suffered a mild hamstring strain last Tuesday during Spring Training fielding drills, and while both the pitcher and team have been optimistic that the injury isn’t a big deal, there is still serious cause for concern. The Red Sox have been plagued over the last few years by […]

2013 Red Sox Bullpen Breakdown

In 2012, the Red Sox bullpen was a disaster.  After the injury to Andrew Bailey in spring training, Alfredo Aceves became the closer and ended up leading the American League in blown saves.  The team blew 22 saves all together, which was tied for 3rd worst in MLB.  The closer in waiting was supposed to be Daniel Bard, who decided he wanted to be a starter instead.  That did […]

Doubront, Impatient Sox Bats Struggle in Loss to Tribe

It’s never good to go into a series with the feeling of needing a sweep. But with the ups and downs of the Boston Red Sox and a four-game series in Cleveland against the Indians, who recently lost 11 games in a row, the expectations were reasonable to have Boston easily take the series and […]

Joe Mauer’s Heroics Give Red Sox Fourth Straight Loss

Buchholz Strong in Return, but Rays Beat Red Sox 5-3

Clay Buchholz pitched well in his first outing since his recent stint on the disabled list, but the bullpen couldn’t hold off the Rays’ offense. A seventh inning rally gave the Rays the 4-3 lead and BJ Upton added a home run to seal the 5-3 victory. The game started off as a pitchers duel […]

Yankees Blast Beckett, Outlast Red Sox in Offensive Showdown

The Yankees defeated the Red Sox Friday night at Fenway Park by a score of 10-8. The Sox offense finally woke up after being stagnant on the road trip, only to be outmatched by the first place Yankees. The first inning of the game certainly drew the attention of the crowd. Josh Beckett did not […]
