Buchholz and Uehara: A Tale of Two Pitchers

The Red Sox have decided to treat the remainder of the 2014 regular season like Spring Training, auditioning many of its players for next season.  Two of those players are pitchers Clay Buchholz and Koji Uehara. Clay Buchholz Buchholz is known to run hot or cold during any given season. There does not seem to be a […]

Why Watch the Red Sox? David Ortiz Poised to Top the Record Books

10 games and counting. That is all that is left in this abomination of a season for the Boston Red Sox. This is my #100happydays submission — that 2014 is kindly petering out and I can start looking forward to next season. But unfortunately, there are still games left and I can’t distract myself with […]

Why Watch the Red Sox? For the Real Clay Buchholz to Please Stand Up

In case you missed it, the Baltimore Orioles clinched their first division title since 1997 yesterday with a 8-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. It was pretty easy to miss because the Red Sox were eliminated from any sort of playoff contention weeks ago, and are so far back in the American League East (24 […]

Red Sox Switch to Six-Man Rotation

Baseball — America’s National Pastime — is rich with unwritten rules tradition.  You don’t bunt with two strikes, your power hitter bats cleanup, and your starters pitch every fifth day. Now that the Boston Red Sox are pulled off the patented “worst-to-first-to-worst,” they’ll be breaking one of those rules. Red Sox manager John Farrell announced […]

Why 2014 Should Make Red Sox Fans Smile

It’s true. The 2014 season has been a complete nightmare for the Boston Red Sox. As the team’s winning percentage hovers around .440 with a dismal 29-40 record at Fenway Park, it’s no secret that 2014 has already been dismissed as a lost cause. However, this should only make the 2013 World Series Championship taste […]

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 […]

Red Sox Face Dilemma with Jon Lester

Jon Lester is the ace of the Boston Red Sox, but for how much longer will he hold that title? Lester is set to become a free agent following the 2014 season, in which he will have the ability to sign with any team that offers him a contract, which means that his time in the Red […]

Red Sox Should Invest in Youth; Look Beyond 2014

What exactly was the 2013 season for the Boston Red Sox? A miraculous journey from Spring Training underdogs to bearded kings of October? A triumphant year of destiny inspired by the tragic events of the Boston Marathon? Hardly. The reality is that the 2013 World Series was purchased by the Red Sox, as free agents like Mike […]

Buchholz Activated from DL, Capuano Designated for Assignment

After making two rehab starts in Pawtucket, Clay Buchholz has been activated from the 15-day disabled list to make his first start in almost a month against the Seattle Mariners Wednesday night. He’ll be looking to salvage the finale after the Red Sox dropped the first two games of the series by scores of 12-3 […]

Buy or Sell? Red Sox Have Bright Future Despite 2014 Woes

When the July 31 trading deadline arrives, teams across the landscape of Major League Baseball will be forced to acknowledge the standings, and recognize where they belong in the pennant race. There is plenty of time between now and then for teams like the Boston Red Sox to reverse their poor fortunes and ride momentum […]

Clay Buchholz to Pitch Rehab Start in Pawtucket

Clay Buchholz will pitch five innings for the Pawtucket Red Sox today, the next step in the process to get him closer to 2013 form, and further away from his currently inflated 7.02 ERA. Buchholz suffered a hyper-extended left knee, and reported dramatic seven-pound weight loss after his last start against the Atlanta Brave at […]

MLB Suspends Red Sox SP Workman Six Games, Doesn’t Punish Rays’ Price

In the now ritualized skirmishes between the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays, Rays starting pitcher David Price plunked David Ortiz in the first inning in a pretty blatant retaliation for last postseason, then hit Mike Carp three innings later. Red Sox starter Brandon Workman responded in kind by throwing behind the head of Evan Longoria […]

Red Sox Tab De La Rosa Over Webster to Replace Injured Buchholz

Last year the Boston Red Sox went to Allen Webster for spot starts and left Rubby De La Rosa primarily to junk time relief situations. Clearly organizational thinking has changed. De La Rosa will start tonight against the hated Tampa Bay Rays for the oft-injured Clay Buchholz, in a game the Sox must desperately want to […]

Red Sox Place Buchholz on DL After Losing Seven Pounds vs. Atlanta Braves

The Boston Red Sox have placed the embattled starter Clay Buchholz on the 15-day disabled list, two days after he lost SEVEN POUNDS pitching in the heat of Atlanta. Perhaps Buchholz felt he owed a pound of flesh in penance for every integer in his 2014 ERA (7.02). Okay, so manager John Farrell said it was his hyperextended left knee that landed […]
