Dice-K: Was it Worth the Hype and Money?

Daisuke Matsuzaka cost the Boston Red Sox over $100 million, with $51.1 million allotted for the posting fee and another $52 million for the six-year contract. With only 49 wins in 105 starts to go along with a 4.25 earned run average, the $100 million seems like a little bit too much for that production. […]

Athletics’ Norberto Halts Red Sox Comeback in Ninth

Down two with two men on in the bottom of the ninth, Kevin Youkilis grabbed a batting helmet.

Red Sox Spring Training Update (3/26-4/1): Boston Sets Rotation, Infield

Opening Day is less than a week away. Who’ll be starting Thursday in Detroit became a lot clearer this week, when the Red Sox hammered out their infield and starting rotation.

He’s young (24) and a lefty. He’s also […]
