Bats Fail Against Indians, Red Sox Drop To 0-4

The worry heading into the opening game against the Indians was that Josh Beckett, who hasn’t looked good in more than a year and a half, was ready to make his first start of the season. Beckett claims he has a renewed focus and that his awful 2010 season (6-6, 5.78 ERA) is behind him. […]

A.L. Central Fantasy Preview

The A.L. Central is a glass half empty/half full division. Here you can find some of the best and most dependable players as well as bottom-dwelling schmucks. Let’s be honest here and just point out that you want Twins, Tigers, and White Sox players on your team. If you are backed into a corner, you […]

Beckett, Red Sox Drop Second Straight in the Bronx

So much for that thunderous roar back into the standings. While a sweep would have been the nail in the proverbial coffin for your 2010 Boston Red Sox, the best that this team can hope for at this point is a split of the series. Doesn’t it taste just as bitter? As Josh Beckett and the […]

Matsuzaka, Beltre Shine as Sox Split Series

Daisuke Matsuzaka got off to a shaky beginning and looked headed for a second rocky outing in as many starts as the Red Sox closed out their four-game series with the Cleveland Indians Thursday night. Shin-Soo Choo hit his 14th home run of the season off Matsuzaka in the first inning to set the tone. […]

Errors Prove Costly as Indians Clobber Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox continued their four-game series against the Cleveland Indians Wednesday night at Fenway Park. Making his long-awaited return from the disabled list was Jacoby Ellsbury, playing in just his tenth game of the season. On the hill for the Red Sox was Jon Lester, who had lost all three of his starts […]

Lowell HRs in Return; Sox Win After Near-Brawl With Tribe

When Kevin Youkilis was placed on the disabled list before Tuesday’s game with a muscle tear in his right thumb, admit it: if you once thought the Red Sox had a chance of making the playoffs, you now thought they had no chance. They may still have no chance, but at least they have an […]

Red Sox Run Out of Heroics, Fall to Indians 6-5

For the fourth straight game, the Red Sox attempted to mount an improbable rally on Monday night against the Cleveland Indians. But, for the first time since Friday night’s loss to the Tigers, the Red Sox did not complete the comeback. Adrian Beltre really tried to deliver a win for the good guys, as he […]

VIDEO: Texas Fan Falls From 2nd Deck for a Foul ball, Saves $13

NEW POST: For video of the fan killed trying to get a foul ball during a game Thursday, July 7th 2011, click here. —– In what I can only describe as the most eye opening example of the state of this country’s economy, a fan at the Rangers/Indians game last night took a 30 foot […]

Masterson Masterful; Sox Bullpen Battered in Defeat

The Boston Red Sox and Cleveland Indians continued their four-game series Wednesday night at Progressive Field. The Red Sox had won both of the first two games of the series and were going for the series victory. On the hill for the Red Sox was Clay Buchholz, who coming into the game was tied for […]

Wakefield Sets Red Sox IP Record, Beats Indians

Tim Wakefield offered another big blow to the gigantic ego of Roger Clemens, and passed the former Red Sox ace for the team record in total innings pitched with 2,777. It was no sure thing that the knuckleballer would even set the record on Tuesday night, given his recent up-and-down performances. After dominating the Phillies […]

Dice-K Dominates Tribe, Runs Scoreless Streak to 13.2 IP

Fresh off a disappointing loss on Sunday against the Orioles, the Red Sox headed to Cleveland to take on another punchless, hapless team in the Indians. This isn’t your father’s Indians. This isn’t the Manny Ramirez, Jim Thome, and Roberto Alomar 1,000-run Indians. Hell, this isn’t even the Indians of a couple years ago. This […]

Armando Galarraga Perfect Game Lost By Bad Call: Expanded Instant Replay Needed

The NFL has it. The NBA has it. Hell, even the NHL, that red-headed step brother of a professional sports league has it. What is “it,” exactly? Expanded instant replay. After a certain gaffe on Wednesday night involving a near-perfect game, it’s become clearer than ever that Major League Baseball needs to finally step into […]

Red Sox Take Momentum Into Postseason

The Red Sox finished their final game of the season with a back and forth 12-7 win over the Cleveland Indians to complete a four-game sweep. The game started on a stomach churning moment when Clay Buchholz surrendered a leadoff home run just three pitches into the game. David Ortiz helped the Sox take the […]

Sox Game Not Televised In My Area

So…I listened to Joe Castiglione and the great Dave O’Brien on the radio. They do some fine work, but no TV (the game was apparently on NESN Plus) means no Heidi Watney. Damn Bruins! Anywho, we saw the good, the bad, and the ugly from Josh Beckett. The bad? Allowing six hits and four runs […]

Uncle Lester is Back: Sox Beat Indians 3-0

The collective brick-s**ting that occurred across New England last Friday after Melky Cabrera welted a line drive straight into Jon Lester’s knee ceased Thursday night as Lester handcuffed the Cleveland Indians to win 3-0. It was a reassuring performance for the Red Sox’s best starter of the second half as Boston looks to the post-season. […]
