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 […]

Three Red Sox Strengths

Now that the offseason is officially upon us a month sooner than most fans would like, the time has come to take stock of the Red Sox organization, see just where they stand, and try to figure out how they will proceed going into and through the offseason. Since there is always a give/take, ying/yang, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Red Sox Historically Bad on the Road, All But Out of AL East Hunt

Boston has been bruised, battered, and beaten in every facet of the game on their tough 7-game swing through Los Angeles and Houston. The Sox dropped four straight to the Angels in a sweep, something that has never happened on the Angels turf in the 55-year history of the series between the two teams. In […]

Red Sox Should Target Sonny Gray

That might be a slightly vague title; the Red Sox should do a lot of things, including win many more ballgames. The main point of this article is that the Red Sox can trade for Sonny Gray. The Red Sox have had the ability to trade for the ace that they so desperately need for […]

Management Forced Its Hand With Rick Porcello, Red Sox Nation Pays

Rick Porcello does not belong on the mound of any major league ballpark. No one in their right mind would put a pitcher in their starting rotation that owns a 6.08 ERA. A 6.00 + ERA, this is insane. Right? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. […]

Trading Jon Lester Could Ignite a Red Sox Dynasty

I love Jon Lester. As a native New Englander with a passion for baseball, I have always admired the intensity Lester brings to the mound every fifth day. He has been a reliable starting pitcher since his first full season, making at least 31 starts every year since 2008, and his 21 starts this season rank […]
