Porcello, Ortiz Ejection Bad in Otherwise Good Weekend for Red Sox

Saturday night in Kansas City the Sox had a performance that seems to sum up the season thus far. Mookie Betts’s lead off blast had the Sox off to a promising start. It was looking as if Boston might win their second straight against the talented Kansas City club with a 4-1 lead into the […]

O’s Sweep Red Sox; Wade Miley Argues With John Farrell

The Sox fell to the Orioles 6-5 at Camden Yards in the final game of the series in Baltimore. Starter Wade Miley managed just 4.0 innings, giving up nine hits, five runs, all earned, including three solo bombs to Adam Jones, Manny Machado and Nolan Reimold. It was another ugly performance for Boston, losing their […]

Red Sox Stand Tall, Take Five Out of Seven at Fenway

The Red Sox took care of business at home by winning five out of seven games during the home stand. This coming after a tough stretch on the road where the Minnesota Twins swept them in a three game set, after which they lost three out of four to the Texas Rangers. During this trip the […]

Eduardo Rodriguez Hurls Gem, Boston’s Bats Come to Life

Eduardo Rodriguez continued to dazzle teammates and blow away batters with a 95-MPH fastball in his second big league start. The 22-year-old left-hander mixed in a slider and a change up in 7.0 innings, giving up one run on two hits and striking out seven before exiting with a commanding lead. Rodriguez moved to 2-0 […]

Eduardo Rodriguez Dazzles in Red Sox Debut

I hope the Red Sox can get a refund on that return ticket to Pawtucket. After the major league debut of Eduardo Rodriguez, called up from AAA Pawtucket for a presumed spot start, he won’t be going anywhere. That’s how good the 22-year-old was in tossing 7.2 shutout innings against the Texas Rangers in Globe […]

You Know the Red Sox Suck When…

It seems we Red Sox fans are all waiting for the other shoe to drop: for GM Ben Cherington to make that all-in trade to improve the pitching staff, for the offense to start hitting, for the Red Sox to start winning, for God’s sake. But have we ever stopped to consider that the Red Sox […]

Red Sox Rename Home Opener “Mookie Betts Coming Out Party”

The ceremony took place after the first inning. It didn’t have quite the same formality or pomp and circumstance as the preface ceremony. There were no Lombardi trophies on display. Tom Brady had already left after throwing out the first pitch (or trying to). But by the bottom of the first inning, before the second […]

David Ortiz Rants on Steroids, Testing, Hall of Fame

David Ortiz posted an article to The Players’ Tribune, Derek Jeter’s website, ranting and raving about old accusations surrounding his use of steroids and performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). Ortiz’s post was seemingly unprovoked. No one that I know of has said anything thus far this season about David Ortiz and PEDs. Don’t bring an issue to […]

Red Sox 2015 Preview: Napoli, Pedroia, Bogaerts, Sandoval, Ortiz

The Red Sox are expected to have one of the best lineups in baseball, and most of that comes from their versatility and depth around the infield. This could be one of the best offensive teams in baseball during the 2015 season, and with the rotation lacking luster at the top, manager John Farrell will […]

Casualties of New Red Sox Royalty: Honoring Lavarnway, Francisco DFAs for Panda, Hanley Signings

You would think David Ortiz spoke for all of us when he welcomed Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez to Red Sox Nation. But there are a couple of former members who might not be as excited as the rest of us about the signings of Sandoval and Ramirez, because it signaled the end of their time in […]

David Ortiz Welcomes $200M Teammates Sandoval and Ramirez to Red Sox on Twitter

Red Sox Nation is pretty excited, and for good reason: the top two offensive players on the free agent market are both coming to Boston. Pablo Sandoval’s agent confirmed yesterday that he was spurning the defending World Champion San Francisco Giants to come to the last place Boston Red Sox (I’m not sure I quite […]

Why Watch the Red Sox? This is the End!

So maybe this occasion doesn’t call for a parade down the Charles, but it certainly is a cause for celebration. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been searching for reasons to keep watching the Red Sox, if only to feel like a better fan and to justify to myself (and my girlfriend) why I […]

Why Watch the Red Sox? Mooooookieeeee and the Rooooookieeeeees (and Some Guy Named Jeter)

And then there were two. This afternoon, the Boston Red Sox play their second to last game of the atrocity that is the 2014 season, though you’d be excused for confusing them with the Pawtucket Red Sox. Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, Mike Napoli, and Shane Victorino are all out for the season, leaving a collection […]

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 […]

Who is Rusney Castillo? Examining Castillo’s Future with Red Sox

After losing out on the Jose Abreu sweepstakes and then plummeting to last in the American League East, the Red Sox and their fans needed the acquisition of Rusney Castillo simply for morale’s sake. With Victorino’s injuries and Jackie Bradley Jr.’s sudden inability to hit a baseball, the Red Sox’s outfield grew desperate for reinforcements […]
