Is Jose Iglesias the Next Starting Shortstop for the Red Sox?

The Red Sox seem to change shortstops on a yearly basis. Every year it’s a new face.

Would Lance Berkman Make a Good Addition for the Red Sox?

One of the Red Sox needs this season is a first baseman. There are several options, including Mike Napoli and Adam LaRoche.

But according to […]

What Should the Red Sox do with Jacoby Ellsbury?

Red Sox Win While Debuting New Faces

While Boston certainly isn’t contending this season and has gone into rebuilding mode, they do have some time to try out some new pieces before 2013.

It might have been one of the best back-and-forth games for any major league team this season, but unfortunately it also was arguably the worst loss the Boston Red Sox have suffered all year.

Rallies Cut Short, Red Sox Fall to Angels in Series Opener

The Los Angeles Angels are in a similar place to the Boston Red Sox late into this 2012 season.

Yet […]
