Brock Holt Headed to Cincinnati for All-Star Game

Brock Holt has been named to the American League All-Star team. The public may continue to vote, leaving the possibility for Xander Bogaerts to be voted on the team, too. The 27-year-old hitter is the only player from the Boston Red Sox scheduled to travel to Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati to participate in […]

The Newest Four-Letter Word for the Red Sox: Hope

The 2015 Season for the Boston Red Sox has been defined by the latest tirade of four-letter words inspired by Rick Porcello’s latest pitching performance, Pablo Sandoval’s ninth inning fielding percentage, or any other seminal moment of disappointment. There are a lot to choose from. But lately, strangely, I’ve been finding myself coming back to […]

Should Brock Holt Start for Red Sox?

How about a more specific question: Should Brock Holt have an everyday spot in the lineup somewhere? That is much tougher to answer, since the Red Sox’ master plan likely did not include having their super-utility role player move to an everyday role. Ultimately, super-utility probably is the best way to use Holt; he can […]

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 […]

Brock Holt is John Farrell’s MVP

While the Red Sox have stumbled there way through the season up to this point, one man on the team has outperformed expections: Brock Holt. His success has not gone unnoticed by John Farrell, as Holt has earned a consistent place in the second spot in the lineup. Brock is ballplayer in every sense of […]

Red Sox Weekly Round Up: Starting Pitching Continues to be Woeful

I’ve done my absolute best to be optimistic about this pitching staff. Of course we all know how unproven the entire rotation was coming into this season, but it seemed like the five of them would be able to put it together. Each pitcher has had success in the past and the thought was they […]

Red Sox Weekly Round Up: Joe Kelly and Clay Buchholz Shine Early

After the most brutal winter in the history of Boston, the start of a new season of Red Sox baseball is just what we needed. The temperature is finally rising and there is legitimate buzz surrounding this team. Thanks to the additions of high-profile free agents Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez, the young players like […]

Red Sox 2015 Preview: Ramirez, Victorino, Betts, Castillo, Nava

The Boston Red Sox had trouble with health as well as a lack of power and average in the outfield in 2014, but the additions of Hanley Ramirez, a healthy Shane Victorino and even the Cuban Rusney Castillo should be an upgrade of the minor leaguers and bench players the Red Sox had for most […]

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 […]

Pablo Sandoval to Decide Next Week on Red Sox’ 5 Year, $95M Offer

According to a report in the Boston Globe, the Boston Red Sox have made a five year, $95 million offer to free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval. Is that going to be enough to sign the Kung Fu Panda away from his former team, the defending World Champion San Francisco Giants? Per Sandoval’s brother and […]

Why Watch the Red Sox? Mooooookieeeee and the Rooooookieeeeees (and Some Guy Named Jeter)

And then there were two. This afternoon, the Boston Red Sox play their second to last game of the atrocity that is the 2014 season, though you’d be excused for confusing them with the Pawtucket Red Sox. Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, Mike Napoli, and Shane Victorino are all out for the season, leaving a collection […]

Brock Holt: Utility Man or Key Future Starter?

Back in 2012, the Red Sox sent a package of prospects over to the Pittsburgh Pirates for projected closer of the 2013 season, Joel Hanrahan. Brock Holt was a mere throw-in, and Joel Hanrahan revealed himself as a bust, which cleared a path for Koji Uehara to dominate as the Red Sox closer.  Holt played 23 games […]

Video: Red Sox Turn 2-6-3-4-5-3 Double Play (But Still Lose to Yankees)

I’m hard pressed to think of another Red Sox-Yankees series in September that had less meaning, but then again I’m only 25, so what do I know? What I do know is that this Red Sox season is hopelessly lost, and now it’s all about enjoying the little things in life/baseball. So even though the […]

Red Sox – Dodgers Trade Rumor: Jon Lester for Matt Kemp?

According to a club source, the Boston Red Sox would consider a trade centered around sending Jon Lester to Los Angeles in exchange for Dodgers’ outfielder Matt Kemp. Outside of your fantasy baseball league, such a trade would seem unlikely, but given the two teams negotiating and the state of each franchise, the deal would […]

Video: Brock Holt Makes Unreal Catch in Red Sox 14-1 Win Over Blue Jays

The Red Sox won 14-1 Monday night, which by itself is worthy of a CNN breaking news alert. David Ortiz launched two home runs, passing Yaz on the all-time home run list… and even Stephen Drew hit a home run. But, perhaps nothing was more amazing than Brock Holt’s amazing catch while playing in a […]
