Red Sox Targeting David Price

Its no surprise to anyone that the Red Sox are planning to play at the top of the starting pitching market this offseason, both in trades and free agency. David Price has been seen as the top available arm, along with Zack Greinke and sometimes Johnny Cueto. Each would be a pretty significant upgrade over […]

Kimbrel’s Effect on the Red Sox Bullpen

The Red Sox made headlines on Friday night with their surprising acquisition of Craig Kimbrel from the San Diego Padres, marking Dave Dombrowski’s first significant roster move in Boston. Kimbrel immediately becomes the closer for the Red Sox since he has been one of the most dominant relievers in the history of the game, and […]

Dombrowski Announces His Arrival to Red Sox with Trade for Kimbrel

The Boston Red Sox held a press conference back in August to introduce Dave Dombrowski as the new president of baseball operations, in the midst of (another) failed season en route to a third last place finish in four years. But throughout the remainder of the season, Dombrowski’s presence was more felt than seen or heard – […]

Greinke Not a Fit for Red Sox

We’ve already been over how the Red Sox need starting pitching, particularly a top-end starter. National League Cy Young contender Zack Greinke is one of the most readily available options on the free agent market, and some have suggested that he should be the next great Red Sox Ace. There have also been reports that […]

Red Sox Keep Buchholz…For Now

When the news came out on Wednesday that the Red Sox had exercised their option on Clay Buchholz, it seemed obvious and mystifying at the same time. The news itself was largely unsurprising, but the next step in the process remains unclear. For some reason the Red Sox were expected to pick up the $13 […]

Should the Red Sox Want Johnny Cueto?

Earlier in the week we proposed a similar question regarding David Price, in wondering whether the Red Sox should consider a serious run at a major free agent in their search for an Ace for the starting rotation. Johnny Cueto is a very, very similar player to Price, and will most likely cost just almost […]

Three Red Sox Needs

Earlier in the week we looked at some of the Red Sox’ current organizational strengths heading into the offseason, and now we are taking a look at some needs the team will be working to improve on this winter. Most of them are pretty obvious and involve pitching, but let’s get into it. Below are […]

Can the Red Sox Avoid Being the Victim of the Yankees 10,000th Win? Please?

Lord knows it’s been months since I’ve asked anything of the 2015 Boston Red Sox. Mired in last place and saddled with two free agent splashes that never made it out of the shallow end, what was there to ask? But with only a few games left, I do have one final request as a […]

Ex-Sox closer Papelbon Brawls With MVP Candidate Bryce Harper

This week, the Washington Nationals were tied up in a 4-4 game against the Philadelphia Phillies at Nationals Park in Washington D.C. when MVP candidate Bryce Harper stepped to the plate. Before getting to the at bat it is important to mention some history. This season the Nationals were favored to win the NL East […]

Red Sox Bullpen Silences O’s at Fenway

Whenever the Red Sox decided to go with a “bullpen game” on Saturday afternoon against the Orioles at Fenway Park, they also likely expected some kind of football score to be the final outcome. Red Sox hitters held up their end of that arrangement in scoring eight runs in the contest, but surprisingly seven Red […]

The Amazing Rich Hill

Friday night’s 7-0 win over the Orioles featured a dominant performance from a Red Sox starting pitcher, the likes of which the team is unaccustomed to in 2015. Rich Hill was dealing at Fenway Park, tossing a two-hit shutout with a walk and ten strikeouts. Hill seemed nowhere near the Red Sox radar even a […]

Video: Red Sox Honor David Ortiz, Newest Member of the 500 HR Club

Unless you’re into breathlessly watching to see if the Boston Red Sox can avoid a third last place finish in four years, there isn’t much left worth tuning in for as the team plays out the string on this miserable 2015 season. Thankfully, David Ortiz has yet again provided a reason to watch, even though […]

The Good, The Bad, The Joe Kelly

When the Red Sox decided to shut Joe Kelly down for the remainder of 2015, it ended a roller coaster year for the hard-throwing right-hander. This season has included a lot of failure, and a decent amount of success for Kelly, especially recently. Kelly’s past eight starts have been encouraging, and provide some hope for […]

Why Do the Red Sox Still Trust Jean Machi?

Believe it or not this is a serious question: why on the good, green Earth do the Red Sox continually put “Mean” Jean Machi into games in key situations? When Koji Uehara was lost for the season the team tried having Machi replace him in the closer role, which we can say was a resounding […]

The Red Sox Can Now Count on Wade Miley

When the Red Sox acquired Wade Miley in the offseason, they did not expect him to carry the starting rotation. The team was looking for a pretty good/not great innings eater who could be counted on for a quality start virtually every time out. For much of 2015 Miley had underperformed those expectations. Miley has […]
