// Edwin Jackson

No Edwin Jackson? No Roy Oswalt? No Problem.

The Boston Red Sox have been rumored to be after just about every starting pitcher for the past fifteen seasons. There will never be a winter where the Sox aren’t in the running, even if it’s hearsay, for a free agent. With a little less than three weeks away from pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training, we know […]

Andrew Bailey Strengthens Red Sox Pitching Staff

The Red Sox finally made a big move this offseason.

There have been questions as to how the Red […]

Should Red Sox Target C.J. Wilson, CC Sabathia, or Mark Buehrle?

C.J. Wilson and CC Sabathia will both be free agents in a matter of days, but that does not mean that the Red Sox need to pay hand over fist for either of these pitchers. Yeah, what a concept, free agents that the Red Sox don’t have to sign. Call me crazy, but the Sox […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 8 (5-25 – 5-31)

OK, so the Matt Wieters experiment isn’t looking good so far (.182 avg, 0 RBI), but hey, these things just need time baby. In one of my leagues, I was offered a trade. It was Angels’ 1B Kendry Morales for Colorado 3B Garrett Atkins. Maybe this guy got a hold of my piece on Atkins […]

After Rain, Sox Bats Wake Up

Maybe the bats were too dry? After a 2.5-hour rain delay, the Red Sox bats finally woke up in a 7-3 win over the Rays. Clay Buchholz pitched well again, going 5 1/3 innings and only giving up one run on five hits and four walks. He struck out four to help lower his ERA […]

Jon Lester vs Edwin Jackson

Jon Lester (4-0, 4.47 ERA) is coming off of two good starts. Edwin Jackson (4-14, 6.00 ERA) is coming off of two bad starts. Course as I watch Lester’s recent success doesn’t mean anything, as he has allowed 3 ER already in the 1st inning. He has allowed 3 hits so far. Previously in his […]
