Who’s the boss? Your browser does not support iframes. Cody Ross.
Cody Ross really enjoys hitting at Fenway Park. The outfielder was signed to just a one-year $3 million contract with Boston, but the attraction of the Green Monster in left field might be the biggest offseason attraction for his looming free agency. On Wednesday night as a part of the dominating 10-1 victory over Chicago, [...]
Red Sox left fielder Carl Crawford makes a much anticipated return from the disabled list tonight at Fenway Park, hitting second and playing left field. After signing a seven-year $142 million contract, Crawford was very disappointing in his first year for the Red Sox in 2011. Playing in 130 games, the speedster batted just .255 [...]
We’re now past Independence Day, and the All-Star votes are in as well. David Ortiz is the only Boston member on the AL squad, which may be hampering Boston’s spirits on their three-game losing streak. Still, other teams are having a good time, most notably new division leader Pittsburgh. The White Sox are also doing [...]
New White Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis went to Chicago with a history of injuries, so it may come as no surprise that Youkilis left Friday’s game with an injury. What kind of injury you ask?
Things keep changing more and more. The Rays are dropping, the Red Sox are rising and even the Pirates are making a run. The Yankees are widening their lead, while the Dodgers are dropping fast. The Giants are on an absolute tear, while the Reds… not so much. More is different now than ever before [...]
Kevin Youkilis has played his last game as a member of the Red Sox. After much speculation and ever increasing rumors all this week, the Sox have finalized a deal to send the former All-Star 3B to the Chicago White Sox. In return, Boston will receive pitcher Zach Stewart, utility man Brent Lillibridge and will [...]
10 weeks into the season, and pitching continues to hold sway following yet another perfect game, this time from Matt Cain and the Giants. That has the Giants still doing well in the Wildcard race. But that hasn’t stopped things from mixing up elsewhere. The tightly contested AL East has undergone yet more changes, and [...]
We’re now a week into June, and there’s plenty to talk about. The NL Wildcard race has really been shaken up. Texas is having a tough time staying on top. Even the Yankees are starting to turn things around. And there’s potential for even more significant changes very soon, so let’s look at what would [...]
May is just about up, but the story lines haven’t let up. Matt Kemp should be back on the DL again. The Red Sox have injuries galore but are suddenly good. The Angels and White Sox have picked up their game, while the Orioles and Rays are faltering. Where does that leave everyone? Let’s look [...]
Although Boston’s 6-game winning streak ended Sunday at the hands of pitcher Gavin Floyd and the Chicago White Sox, the Sox can return to Fenway feeling much better about their team than when they departed. Since blowing a 9-1 lead to the Yankees on April 21, the Red Sox won 6 straight on the road [...]
It was very refreshing to see Boston get off to such a great road trip, and that hasn’t let up. Thanks to a 1-0 victory against the White Sox, that streak now stands at six. However, Chicago could have done better. The most important play of the game came in the first inning, with Chicago [...]
Three weeks into the season, and there’s starting to be some real separation in the NL divisions, but the AL is still largely close. The AL East is starting to even out, while Washington’s stock continues to rise. Where has everyone wound up this week? Let’s look at what would happen if the playoffs started [...]
The MLB season is now underway, and already there have been plenty of surprises. In particular, the AL East has been turned upside down, again. The Dodgers are good, the Angels are bad, and Boston’s pitching is as useless as last year thus far. And a manager (Ozzie Guillen) is already in scalding water. So [...]
When the Red Sox signed John Lackey to an $82.5 million contract following the 2009 season, they had their sights set on establishing a trio of aces for the next several years. Lackey would be joining a rotation with Josh Beckett and Jon Lester, giving the Red Sox a team strength in pitching. However, things [...]
