NESN Continues to Disrespect Don Orsillo

Does anyone working at NESN have any idea what they are doing? Do the network’s decision makers put any thought into their actions, or do they just throw things against wall and hope they stick? We have reached the point where something needs to change in the hierarchy at NESN because the Red Sox’ flagship […]

Hanley Moving to First! Red Sox Defense is Saved!

There is a noticeable difference between a disappointment and a disaster. Dustin Pedroia missing almost half of a season’s worth of games due to injury is a disappointment; Hanley Ramirez playing Left Field is a disaster. In fact, Hanley playing just about any position is a disaster, and he is effectively a Designated Hitter at […]

Clay Buchholz Has a Hazy Future with Red Sox

If it seems like Clay Buchholz has gone mostly unnoticed since the All-Star break, it’s because he has. The Red Sox’ subpar record and recent youth movement have combined to make Buchholz and his future an afterthought in recent weeks, but that is not likely to continue much longer. Of course it helps that he […]

Henry Owens & Blake Swihart Dominate Royals

Friday’s win over the Royals at Fenway Park gave the Red Sox their fourth straight win, the last two of which came against the best team in the American League. Just about everything went right for the Red Sox, and they now remain just a win away from taking a series from the reigning AL […]

What Could Have Been: The 2015 Red Sox

Coming into the 2015 baseball season, the Boston Red Sox were expected to have a potent offense, especially with the new additions of Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval. Mike Napoli, who underwent offseason surgery to repair a sleep apnea problem, tore the cover off the ball in spring training by batting .400 with a team […]

Barnes Struggles in First Start for Red Sox

Monday’s start against the Indians at Fenway was supposed to be a positive step in the right direction for Matt Barnes. The team and its fans were hoping Barnes could build on his solid pure stuff and minor league performance as a Major League starter. His results were unimpressive out of the bullpen to start […]

Terry Francona Will Join John Farrell For His First Chemotherapy Session

Last week John Farrell announced his diagnosis of stage one lymphoma and that he would step down from his role as manager of the Red Sox for the remainder of the season. While Boston prepares to battle Cleveland in a three game series at Fenway this week, John Farrell will be waging war against cancer, […]

Owens, Red Sox Bullpen Shaky in Extra-Innings Loss

Sunday’s 10-8 extra-inning loss to the Seattle Mariners was a perfect microcosm of the Red Sox’ 2015 season: plenty of hits and production by the lineup, complete and total failure from the pitching staff. In fact, the lineup went above and beyond the call of duty, erasing a 7-0 deficit to tie the game at […]

Rusney Castillo’s Open Audition

Since the Red Sox have been unofficially eliminated from 2015 playoff contention, they have admitted to using the balance of the season to evaluate the roster’s potential for 2016 and better inform the team’s offseason strategy. One of the most interesting roster auditions is in Right Field, where the team hopes Rusney Castillo can play […]

Dave Dombrowski Should Be on Red Sox Radar

The Detroit Tigers recently let go of President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Dave Dombrowski. Dombrowski had been with the Tigers for nearly 14 seasons. Dombrowski built the Tigers from the ground up. In his first full season in Detroit, the Tigers had an American League worst record of 119 losses. However, he did […]

Henry Owens Solid In Red Sox Debut

One of the few things Red Sox fans have left to enjoy about the 2015 season is the opportunity to glimpse the future of their team. They got such a look on Tuesday when Henry Owens made his major league debut ay Yankee Stadium. It was only one start, and it was against a team […]

(David) Price is Wrong for Red Sox

The 2015 season has highlighted the harsh reality of the Red Sox pitching staff: it lacks an Ace, or really any time of frontline starter. This is the need that Ben Cherington seriously needs to address in the immediate future, either at the trade deadline or in the offseason. There is absolutely no way the […]

Small Deals Can Make a Big Impact on the Red Sox

With the trade deadline action in full force, the Red Sox need to take a serious look at the players on their roster and their roles in the 2016 season. Shane Victorino was the first Sox player to be dealt, but there are more moves to be made in order to best develop a functioning […]

Could the Red Sox Use Some Defense?

There is no denying that the Red Sox have been generally awful in 2015 and have fallen well short of expectations. The lackluster pitching staff has taken most of the blame, most of which it deserves. However, there is an interesting chicken-or-the-egg scenario that the Red Sox should ask themselves: is the pitching bad because […]

Joe Kelly at the End of the Leash

Enough is enough. The madness needs to stop. It is pretty clear that the Red Sox have virtually no chance at all to play meaningful games for the rest of the 2015 season, and it is also clear that the pitching staff is the rough equivalent of a high school varsity squad (no offense to […]
