SoB MLB Power Rankings 9-14-10

The Rays and Yankees are still locked in a heated duel, with the Rays having a 0.5-game lead and a game in had. Ditto for the Padres over the Giants. The Rockies are only 2.5 games out, and the Braves are just a game behind Philadelphia ad leading the Wildcard race by 1.5 over San […]

Red Sox Trade Manny Delcarmen to Rockies, Waive White Flag

It’s amazing how quickly things turn around. A week ago, the Red Sox made a bold move in claiming Johnny Damon off waivers in an effort to add outfield help as the Sox pushed toward the playoffs. Johnny Damon said “Screw You” to Theo Epstein in not so many words, and the Red Sox arrived […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 8-31-10

The Rays and Yankees are still tied with 31 games to go; the Red Sox are 7.0 games back. The Cardinals (and pretty much the Giants) have seemingly died. The Padres have too, but they still had a huge division lead built up to eat the blow. And assuming Manny doesn’t help the White Sox […]

The White Sox have widened their division lead, the Cardinals have taken one again, and the Giants have quietly punched their ticket to the Wild Card race. The Rays are back in form, the Braves, Padres, and Rangers are all still […]

Walking Wounded Sox Pull Out Win in San Francisco

It’s safe to say they needed this win. It’s been a tough interleague road trip out west for the Boston Red Sox, and they headed into Saturday’s game with the 2008 A.L. MVP Dustin Pedroia shelved for what seems to be indefinitely with a fractured left foot. Pedroia suffered the injury when he fouled a […]

Night After Colorado Laser Show, Pedroia Fouls Ball Off Foot, Leaves Game

Dustin Pedroia put on the laser show on Thursday night against the Rockies, going 5-5 with three home runs to power the Red Sox to a 13-11 win in Colorado. His third HR came with a man on in the 10th inning after Jonathan Papelbon blew the save for the second straight night. The second […]

Red Sox Rock Jimenez But Still Fall 8-6 in Denver

After the drama of a 2-1 loss Tuesday night Red Sox Nation was prepared for another pitcher’s duel on Wednesday. Taking the mound for the Rockies was ace Ubaldo Jimenez, owner of an ERA well under two and entering the game with 13 wins. The Rockies got off to a fast start, scoring four runs […]

Rockies Pitchers Frustrate Red Sox Hitters All Night Long

The Boston Red Sox and Colorado Rockies began a three-game series Tuesday night at Coors Field. The Red Sox were coming off of an 8-1 homestand that saw them move into second place in the AL East, tied with Tampa Bay and just a half-game behind New York. On the hill for the Red Sox […]

Red Sox Interested in Ryan Spilborghs?

According to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, three teams, including the Red Sox, have inquired about the services of outfielder Ryan Spilborghs. The Rockies called up OF Carlos Gonzalez, which could make Spilborghs expendable. They can replace Spilborghs with the recently demoted Matt Murton. Spilborghs is a righthanded hitter and reserve outfielder making just $415,000, so […]

TGIF: The Atkins Diet

One thing that all fantasy owners have in common is that we tend to elevate our panic levels to critical conditions. Due to this, we may lose faith in under-performing players and quickly rid ourselves of the burden. I myself let San Francisco’s Pablo Sandoval go rather quickly after he didn’t live up to my […]

TGIF: Matt Holliday to Oakland

It was reported several days ago that the Oakland A’s acquired LF Matt Holliday from the Colorado Rockies. In order to land one of the best hitters in all of baseball, the A’s had to give up SP Greg Smith, OF Carlos Gonzalez, and CL Huston Street. Holliday has been one of the biggest offensive threats […]

All-Star Update: Yankees Fans Attack Papelbon

BREAKING NEWS: With one stroke of the bat, Red Sox RF J.D. Drew knocked in a 2-run shot off Cincinatti Reds SP Edinson Volquez to tie the All-Star Game at 2-2 in the 7th inning. We’ll keep you posted. Update: Sox Closer Jonathan Papelbon came in the 8th inning to a slew of boos and […]

Schilling and Red Sox Roll-Up Rockies, Onto Coors

Schilling, Okajima and Papelbon are all the Red Sox needed tonight. That and two runs scored by the offense. When the offense had easily carried the team when Beckett wasn’t pitching, its refreshing to see the pitching hold down the game. The last game Schilling started he got 10 runs of support. Easily enough to […]

The Red Sox Rock the Rockies: Boston the Best Team in Baseball?

Before this series reaches Game 2 or any further I’d like to take a stand and pick a side. I love the Boston Red Sox. Although I remain non-biased on how good they actually are. But if I had to put together at this point an argument why the Boston Red Sox are the best […]

Red Sox Blow Away Rockies, 13-1, in Game 1 of World Series

The Red Sox won their fourth-straight postseason game in Game 1 of the World Series, handing the Rockies just their second loss in the last 23 games. Josh Beckett struck out the first four batters he faced en route to the victory. He’s now 4-0 this postseason with a 1.20 ERA and in the process, […]
