Masahiro Tanaka prefers Boston, New York or Los Angeles

According to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle, Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka has narrowed his ideal places to play in Major League Baseball to three cities: Boston, New York and Los Angeles. We’ve heard that the Red Sox could be a dark horse candidate for the 25-year old right-handed pitcher, but how realistic would […]

Video: Yankees Turn 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 Triple Play

While the Boston Red Sox had an unscheduled night off thanks to rain postponing Friday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, the New York Yankees did what the Red Sox couldn’t do the two previous nights: beat the Baltimore Orioles.

Putting a Nail in the Red Sox Coffin

It’s over. The time has come to move on from everything the 2012 Boston Red Sox were supposed to be and the unfortunate reality we’ve witnessed over the last few months.

In Defense of Josh Beckett

Talking about Josh Beckett is nothing new in Boston. In 2006, Red Sox fans were excited and unsure about acquiring him. We knew what he was capable of after watching him dispatch the Yankees in the World Series when he was only 23 years old. However, the Red Sox were forced to give up the […]

Should Red Sox Target C.J. Wilson, CC Sabathia, or Mark Buehrle?

C.J. Wilson and CC Sabathia will both be free agents in a matter of days, but that does not mean that the Red Sox need to pay hand over fist for either of these pitchers. Yeah, what a concept, free agents that the Red Sox don’t have to sign. Call me crazy, but the Sox […]

Why is Josh Beckett so Hated?

With the collapse of the 2011 Red Sox a week into the past, we can finally begin to rationally decide who to irrationally blame. While I’m all for the torches and pitchforks, one member of the Red Sox is receiving an unfair amount of the heat. Then again, Josh Beckett always has constantly received undeserved […]

Sabathia, Yankees Bullpen Strand 16 Red Sox Base Runners

All good things must come to an end, including CC Sabathia‘s winless streak against the Red Sox this season and Boston’s explosive offense. Sabathia allowed just two earned runs in six innings Tuesday night at Fenway, and the Red Sox left 16 men on base, losing to the Yankees, 5-2. Boston now leads New York […]

Red Sox Slam Sabathia in 10-4 Win

If you’ve only watched New York ace CC Sabathia pitch against Boston this season, you might be wondering what all the fuss is about. For the fourth time in as many starts against the Red Sox, the hefty lefty was disastrous, surrendering 7 runs in a 10-4 defeat. What started as an early duel turned sour for […]

7-Run 7th Gives Red Sox Second Sweep at Yankee Stadium

It took three hours and 27 minutes of a rain delay and then seven innings of actual baseball Thursday night for history to repeat itself, but repeat it did. Josh Beckett beat CC Sabathia for the third time this season, and the Red Sox scored seven runs in the top of the seventh to beat […]

Beckett’s Best Too Much For Yankees; Red Sox Win First Series of 2011

Through their first eight games, the Boston Red Sox starting staff had thrown a league-fewest 16 1-2-3 innings. Sunday night at Fenway Park, Josh Beckett threw nearly half that in just one start. Beckett’s best pitching performance since a June 2009 complete-game shutout of the Atlanta Braves sustained the Red Sox through six innings of […]

South End Baseball Success Stories: Delcarmen and Beyond

Delcarmen, Stars, and South End Baseball There’s a reason Manny Delcarmen’s name is being floated about a potential return to Boston, and that’s because you can never discount a favorite son returning home. The Hyde Park native and West Roxbury High School graduate was a second-round draft pick by Boston in 2000.  The pick made Delcarmen the first draftee […]

Beckett Injured as Red Sox Come Back Late to Split with Yankees

Jonathan Papelbon found himself in a familiar situation Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium.

Just like the first game of the series, the […]
