Enough is enough. The madness needs to stop. It is pretty clear that the Red Sox have virtually no chance at all to play meaningful games for the rest of the 2015 season, and it is also clear that the pitching staff is the rough equivalent of a high school varsity squad (no offense to […]
That might be a slightly vague title; the Red Sox should do a lot of things, including win many more ballgames. The main point of this article is that the Red Sox can trade for Sonny Gray. The Red Sox have had the ability to trade for the ace that they so desperately need for […]
Rick Porcello does not belong on the mound of any major league ballpark. No one in their right mind would put a pitcher in their starting rotation that owns a 6.08 ERA. A 6.00 + ERA, this is insane. Right? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. […]
With the trade deadline a mere month away and the Red Sox in the basement of the American League East, the front office finds themselves in a precarious position. The Red Sox are sitting nine games under .500, but nonetheless are not out of the playoff picture. The question Red Sox Nation ponders is: where do […]
After the most brutal winter in the history of Boston, the start of a new season of Red Sox baseball is just what we needed. The temperature is finally rising and there is legitimate buzz surrounding this team. Thanks to the additions of high-profile free agents Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez, the young players like […]
Half of the 16 non-roster invitations to Boston Red Sox Spring Training were handed out to promising pitchers. The pitchers headed to JetBlue Field include Henry Owens, Brian Johnson, both left-handers, along with right-handed pitchers Dalier Hinojosa, Keith Couch, Felipe Paulino, Mitchell Boggs, Dana Eveland and Noe Ramirez.
The Red Sox traded away four starting pitchers at the trade deadline last week in hopes that their young prospects could begin to develop at the Major League level, and Henry Owens did his part to reinforce their decision in his Triple-A debut. The lefty from Huntington Beach, CA took the mound for the Pawtucket […]
I love Jon Lester. As a native New Englander with a passion for baseball, I have always admired the intensity Lester brings to the mound every fifth day. He has been a reliable starting pitcher since his first full season, making at least 31 starts every year since 2008, and his 21 starts this season rank […]
On Saturday the Boston Red Sox agreed to a trade with the San Francisco Giants that will send right-handed veteran pitcher Jake Peavy back to the west coast. Boston receives right-handed minor league reliever Heath Hembree and left-handed minor league starter Rafael Escobar in the deal.
Jon Lester is the ace of the Boston Red Sox, but for how much longer will he hold that title? Lester is set to become a free agent following the 2014 season, in which he will have the ability to sign with any team that offers him a contract, which means that his time in the Red […]
What exactly was the 2013 season for the Boston Red Sox? A miraculous journey from Spring Training underdogs to bearded kings of October? A triumphant year of destiny inspired by the tragic events of the Boston Marathon? Hardly. The reality is that the 2013 World Series was purchased by the Red Sox, as free agents like Mike […]
When the July 31 trading deadline arrives, teams across the landscape of Major League Baseball will be forced to acknowledge the standings, and recognize where they belong in the pennant race. There is plenty of time between now and then for teams like the Boston Red Sox to reverse their poor fortunes and ride momentum […]
For the first time in John Farrell’s managerial tenure with the Boston Red Sox, the team has dropped four consecutive games after being swept at Fenway Park by the Detroit Tigers. Boston scored just three total runs in the series, and now has a 20-23 record as we approach the month of June. For the […]
Pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training in just over a week. Besides Jon Lester, Koji Uehara, and other major league pitchers of the World Champion Red Sox team, top minor league prospects will join them on the field in Fort Myers, Florida. Top prospect pitchers that quite possibly could be at JetBlue Park include […]
On the first day of the Major League Baseball Rule 4 draft the Boston Red Sox continued Theo Epstein’s plan to build and maintain a development machine. With four selections in the first round and the supplemental “sandwich” round thanks to free agent compensation picks, the Sox could take advantage of the draft board to […]
