Red Sox Bats Overcome Buchholz’s Struggles in Win Over Orioles

The Red Sox are no longer in the basement of the American League East. Well, at least they’re not in the basement alone. The 8-6 win over the first place Baltimore Orioles combined with the New York Yankees loss tied the rivals with even 21-21 records for fourth place in the division. The win was […]

Doubront Shines in 4-1 Victory, Pedroia Keeps Streaking

The Red Sox aren’t accustomed to winning games at Fenway Park this season. In fact, Boston won consecutive games at their home park for the first time all year on Friday night. The 4-1 win over Cleveland was highlighted by a terrific outing by southpaw Felix Doubront, who held the Indians lineup to just three […]

Pawtucket Red Sox Update, Week 5: Daisuke Dominant in Return

It was quite an exciting week for the Pawtucket Red Sox. After slipping just out of first place due to a 1-7 slide, the Sox roared back with four wins in four days in four different cities to reclaim the penthouse. McCoy Stadium hosted another rehab on Monday, with Daisuke Matsuzaka making his first start […]

Red Sox Lose in 17 Innings to Orioles

The Red Sox attempted to avoid being swept by the Baltimore Orioles as they sent Clay BuchholzĀ on the mound on Sunday. Unfortunately the game turned into a ridiculous 17-inning affair ending in a brutally painful 9-6 Sox loss. Darnell McDonald earned the loss after the Sox depleted their available bullpen options and were forced to […]

Pawtucket Red Sox Update, Week 4: Cook, Middlebrooks on Way to Boston

There were a few roster moves made this past week. On Friday, Boston and Pawtucket swapped relievers as Justin Thomas was sent south while Rich Hill completed his return from Tommy John surgery. Then, on Tuesday, Jose Iglesias got the call up to Boston, and Junichi Tazawa returned to Pawtucket, where he has nine strikeouts […]

Pawtucket Red Sox Update, Week 3: Perfect Week Propels PawSox to Penthouse

It was seven days, seven wins this past week for the Pawtucket Red Sox. The perfect week was good enough to push the Sox past the Lehigh Valley IronPigs and into first place in the IL North. Pawtucket lost their starting first baseman this week, as Lars Anderson was called up to Boston when Jason […]

Pawtucket Red Sox Update, Week 2: The Best of Miller, and the Worst of Miller

After finishing their opening six-game homestand at .500, the Pawtucket Red Sox hit the road with a vengeance this week on their first 2012 tour of upstate New York. There was some great pitching, some terrible pitching, some blowouts, some close games, and even a little free baseball. In addition, the Sox hosted their first […]

Red Sox Spring Training Update (3/19-25): Lester to Start Opening Day, Jenks Charged with DUI

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new Spring Training Player of the Week! With a .571 batting average, three runs, four doubles and an RBI in four games, Mike Aviles takes over. Hopefully this award propels him to a fantastic season, finally giving the Red Sox some stability at shortstop. In other Spring Training news, […]

Red Sox Spring Training Update (Opening Weekend): Sox Offense Cruises in Three Games

Just as winter finally rears its ugly head up in Boston, the Red Sox’s Spring Training schedule kicks off down in Ft. Myers, Fla.

[…]

Red Sox Pitching Preview: Health Key to Success in 2012

While this Red Sox offseason has been relatively quiet outside of the trade for closer Andrew Bailey and the hiring of Bobby Valentine as manager, they have made a little noise lately with regards to their starting rotation. General manager Ben Cherington signed veterans Carlos Silva and Aaron Cook to minor league contracts to add […]

Red Sox Re-Sign Andrew Miller

The Red Sox have re-signed 6-foot-7 lefty Andrew Miller, according to Jon Morosi of Fox Sports. Miller had been arbitration-eligible, and the Red Sox likely would have not tendered the lefty an arbitration offer had the two sides not come to an agreement by the Dec. 12 deadline. Miller has a chance to make the […]

Red Sox Erred in Firing Francona, Should Cut Epstein Loose

It’s too late to undo firing Terry Francona, a rash decision born from the kind of rabid bloodlust that few fanbases besides Boston’s are capable of. But if John Henry wants to cut out the true cause of the Red Sox’s historic collapse, he needs to go one level higher and axe Theo Epstein. Player […]

Longoria, Upton and Kotchman all Homer as Rays Rock Red Sox, Cut Wild Card Lead to 3

When nothing is going right, nothing is going right. Such was the case Thursday night at Fenway, when a freakish broken-bat grounder led to four runs by the Tampa Bay Rays, who homered three times to beat the Red Sox, 9-2, and cut Boston’s wild card lead to three games. Broken Bat Ends Up Breaking […]

Rangers Beat Down Red Sox 10-0 in First of Three at Fenway

Miller Rocked By Rangers Andrew Miller was coming off one of his best outings of the year versus the Texas Rangers a week ago, but Friday night he simply just did not have it. Miller was rocked for six earned runs in 1 1/3 innings of work, walking four and striking out only one. Holland […]

Erik Bedard on the 2012 Red Sox?

When the Red Sox acquired Erik Bedard in the remaining minutes of the trade deadline it seemed likely the left-handed Canadian was a rental who helped clear some space on the 40-man roster. Unlike the Victor Martinez and Jason Bay, Bedard will probably not qualify for free agent compensation. Of course, the team can always […]
