Red Sox-Orioles Three-Ball Walk: Coco Crisp Video

Home Plate Ump Andy Fletcher Needs to Read the MLB Rulebook Coco Crisp does not know how many balls it takes to walk. Neither does home plate umpire Andy Fletcher… See what I mean: NOTE: The video may be removed from YouTube, but until it is, enjoy.

Sox Put on a Run Show Against Rangers

They only played three games in this series, but in case you missed it, the Red Sox put up a total of 37 runs in just those three games.  Yes, you read correctly and it all started with a 19-17 win on Tuesday. The Sox scored 10 runs in the first inning with rookie Charlie […]

Sox Bats Wake Up Against Royals

Things are really different without Manny Ramirez. First, the Red Sox are actually winning again…and when they lose it feels like a moral triumph. Despite the piling victories since the trade, Terry Francona has had to juggle the lineup around without Ramirez to find what he likes. Slumps by Jacoby Ellsbury and Coco Crisp have […]

Sox Can’t Come Back in 9th; Yankees Win 2-1

Today’s game was a classic pitchers’ duel that saw Red Sox pitcher Justin Masterson at the wrong end. Despite giving up only two runs, Masterson pitched another good game, but Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina pitched a better one. Masterson pitched six innings giving up two runs on six hits with two strikeouts and two walks. […]

Sox, Lowell Survive the Rain

The Red Sox continued to their winning ways against the Yankees and took game two of this four-game weekend series in the Bronx, winning 6-4. Mike Lowell and Kevin Youkilis provided the offense today with a home run and a strange triple. Josh Beckett also pitched a decent game for his eighth win of the […]

Dice-K Bounces Back in Win Over Astros

Daisuke Matsuzaka (9-1) rebounded from the worst start of his major league career Friday night, pitching five shutout innings to lead the Red Sox to a 6-1 win over the Astros. Dice-K allowed just two hits and three walks in those five innings, to go along with four strikeouts. He actually looked half-decent at the […]

Coco and Drew Help Sox Win Two Over Phils

Coco Crisp slugged a two-run shot to help the Red Sox win Tuesday night’s game 3-0. Wait…Coco again? Yes! Coco Crisp is absolutely on fire recently. In his last three starts, Coco is 5-14 (.357) with three HR’s and seven RBI. He helped Jon Lester earn the win…but the Sox lefty didn’t really need much help. Lester started […]

Bats Power Two Sox Wins

The Red Sox scored just one run in Game 1 against the Reds, and Manny Ramirez left that game with a hamstring injury. Without David Ortiz and Manny, the Sox took the field Saturday amid doubts of their ability to score runs. So…how did they do? The Sox slugged six homers in the final two […]

BREAKING: Coco Crisp Suspended 7 Games

According to the Boston Globe, Coco Crisp was suspended seven games for his role in a brawl on Thursday against Rays pitcher James Shields. Sox lefty Jon Lester was suspended for five games (basically one start), and 1B Sean Casey was suspended for three games. Adding to the earlier breaking news, five Tampa Bay Rays […]

Manny Homers and Fights in Wild Sox Win

As if Boston needed any more sports stories to soak in, the Red Sox battled the Rays for first place in the AL East and did what they could to get the attention of fans across the city. I think it worked. After a HBP in the second inning, Coco Crisp charged the mound and […]

Coco Crisp Brawls With Rays

Coco Crisp was just drilled by James Shields in the side. He originally acted calm, then charged the mound. James Sheilds went for a colossal right hand and completely missed, and Coco landed a right jab to Sheilds’ ear. Crisp was tackled by catcher Dioner Navarro right after he hit Shields. Jonny Gomes ran from […]

Beckett Strong as Sox Take AL East Lead

In a dramatic turn of fortunes, the Tampa Bay Rays are in a fight for first place with the usually strong Red Sox. These games are close and actually meaningful, even in June. The Red Sox won the latest installment of this budding rivalry 5-1 behind solid pitching from Josh Beckett. Tempers flared in a […]

Masterson, Sox Sting Rays

The Red Sox just finished their 10-game roadtrip at a less-than-spectacular 4-6. They have now returned home for a 10-game homestand, and got it started right with a 7-4 win. The win was their 11th-straight victory at home, but they still stand a 1/2 game behind Tampa Bay in the AL East. Huh, what? Justin […]

Masterson Strong Again in Win Over Royals

Justin Masterson was called up to start the second game of a four-game series against the Kansas City Royals, and in his second-career major league start, he dominated in a 2-1 Red Sox win. The Sox rookie pitched 6 1/3 innings, allowing one run on three hits and three walks to go along with five strikeouts. The Sox scored […]

Fantasy Baseball: Rookies to Watch

First off, I need to warn against taking any rookies in a draft. Most don’t pan out to be anything. Some perenial All-Stars and other bench bunnies (seemingly multiplying as they jump from team to team). I’d like to think the guys I’m about to mention are can’t miss but be weary not to jump […]
