Brock Holt Hits for the Cycle, Red Sox Snap 7-Game Skid

Brock Holt hit for the cycle in the Red Sox 9-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves to split the two games at Fenway. He is the first Red Sox player to hit for the cycle since John Valentin on June 6th, 1996. This is only the 21st cycle in franchise history. Holt started out going to […]

Red Sox Draft Arkansas’ Andrew Benintendi 7th Overall

The Boston Red Sox selected outfielder Andrew Benintendi with the seventh overall pick in the 2015 draft. Benintendi was recently named the National Player of the Year by Collegiate Baseball as well as being named SEC Player of the Year. The sophomore Razorback really displayed his power for scouts this year after blasting 19 home […]

Red Sox Stand Tall, Take Five Out of Seven at Fenway

The Red Sox took care of business at home by winning five out of seven games during the home stand. This coming after a tough stretch on the road where the Minnesota Twins swept them in a three game set, after which they lost three out of four to the Texas Rangers. During this trip the […]

Red Sox Needs: Move Hanley Ramirez to 1B, Acquire True Ace

It’s safe to say that the 2015 season has been a disappointment for the Red Sox so far. We’re sitting below .500 and now sit in last place in the weak AL East. Night in and night out something has always seemed to go wrong; it is a team has showed no consistency. At the start of the year […]

You Know the Red Sox Suck When…

It seems we Red Sox fans are all waiting for the other shoe to drop: for GM Ben Cherington to make that all-in trade to improve the pitching staff, for the offense to start hitting, for the Red Sox to start winning, for God’s sake. But have we ever stopped to consider that the Red Sox […]

A Piece of Advice for Swihart after his Red Sox Debut

There is nothing positive about losing the top two catchers on your depth chart. Christian Vazquez lost the 2015 season to Tommy John surgery, and his replacement as the starting catcher, Ryan Hanigan, will be out until at least the All-Star break. But if there’s a silver lining, it’s that Boston Red Sox fans get to see […]

Yankees 3, Red Sox 2: A-Rod Ties Willie Mays on All-Time HR List in Tale of Two Bullpens

Sitting at 659 home runs for his career, Alex Rodriguez wasn’t in the initial lineup to start Friday night’s game at Fenway Park between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. It appeared he, and the rest of the baseball world, would have to wait another day to see him tie Willie Mays on the […]

Will the Real Clay Buchholz Please Stand Up?

One inning.That’s all it took for the New York Yankees to pile on seven runs, for the Boston Red Sox to throw away a potential sweep, and Clay Buchholz to undo the narrative of an overachieving and underestimated Red Sox starting rotation after one turn through. This came one turn after shutting down the Philadelphia Phillies […]

Early Season Injuries Plague Bogaerts, Sandoval, Workman and Castillo

While the Red Sox are off to a solid start (6-3) to the 2015 season, some of big-money players are already injured. Xander Bogaerts sought out an MRI after reporting to Fenway Park on Tuesday with an injured knee suffered during the Red Sox home opener against the Washington Nationals. Bogaerts did not play in […]

Red Sox Kick Off 2015 Season with Buchholz as “Ace”

Summer is coming. The 2015 Major League Baseball season kicked off Sunday night, and the Boston Red Sox will follow Monday afternoon with their season opener against the Philadelphia Phillies. As exciting as the prospect of real, regular season baseball season is (this is me for the past week), the Red Sox starting pitching situation is […]

Swihart, Rodriguez Assigned to Triple-A Pawtucket Roster

Boston Red Sox roster changes were made on Wednesday, March 18th and Friday, March 20th by management. Catcher Blake Swihart and pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez join second baseman Travis Shaw and shortstop Sean Coyle, who were assigned to the Triple-A Pawtucket roster on Wednesday, March 18. All four of these players are part of the 40-man roster. […]

Cubs Hire Manny, Youkilis to Try to Become ’04 Red Sox…Literally

It had been 86 years between World Series titles when the Boston Red Sox finally won in 2004. It has been 20 years longer (and counting?) for the Chicago Cubs, and former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein is trying to recreate the formula that led him to that drought-ending title a little over 10 years […]

Red Sox 2015 Preview: Buchholz, Porcello, Miley, Masterson, Kelly

The Boston Red Sox starting rotation lacks the star power that the 2015 lineup bolsters, but it does provide a sort of lack of depth that was not there in the 2014 season. The starters should be able to eat up innings while also being durable from whoever the “ace of the staff” is to […]

Red Sox and Yoan Moncada Reach Agreement

Former Cuban free agent and infielder Yoan Moncada agreed to a deal with the Boston Red Sox with a $31.5 million signing bonus.  Moncada is switch hitter filled with power and skill. When all the dust settles on the deal, it could be worth $63 million. In Cuba, Moncada played two seasons for the Cienfuegos […]

Red Sox 2015 Preview: Napoli, Pedroia, Bogaerts, Sandoval, Ortiz

The Red Sox are expected to have one of the best lineups in baseball, and most of that comes from their versatility and depth around the infield. This could be one of the best offensive teams in baseball during the 2015 season, and with the rotation lacking luster at the top, manager John Farrell will […]
