First Setback for Red Sox? Jake Peavy Cuts Finger with Fishing Knife

In what was described as a “freak accident” by manager John Farrell, Jake Peavy has been scratched from his next start due to a laceration on his left index finger. The injury happened while using a fishing knife and should set Peavy back about three days or so. Farrell also mentioned that the injury could […]

Masahiro Tanaka prefers Boston, New York or Los Angeles

According to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle, Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka has narrowed his ideal places to play in Major League Baseball to three cities: Boston, New York and Los Angeles. We’ve heard that the Red Sox could be a dark horse candidate for the 25-year old right-handed pitcher, but how realistic would […]

Even with Surplus Starting Pitching, Red Sox Should Stand Pat

A quick glance at the Red Sox roster and you will see six quality starters on the Red Sox roster with five spots to fill. With an extra starter it would make sense to trade a veteran arm (Jake Peavy, John Lackey or Ryan Dempster) to free up some cap space in order to focus […]

David Ortiz, Jake Peavy Enjoy A Cool Hot Stove

Jake Peavy Buys Duck Boat After Red Sox Parade

Red Sox starter Jake Peavy enjoyed his time at the Red Sox parade Saturday, so he wanted something to remember it by. No, a ring won’t be enough. He bought an entire duck boat, according to the Red Sox. So @JakePeavy_44 is fired up because he bought this boat. Yup, the whole thing. This is […]

Thoughts on Cardinals Walk-off Win Over Red Sox in World Series

The obstruction call was obviously (UNDERSTATEMENT ALERT) the big story from the Cardinals’ walk-off win in Game 3 of the World Series. (If you haven’t already seen it, or you’re into self-flagellation, you can check it out here. Just make sure you’re in a padded room or something. Seriously. That play singlehandedly cost me a […]

Tigers Pounce on Peavy, Even ALCS at 2-2

After two 1-0 outcomes in the first three games of the ALCS, Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland decided enough was enough and rearranged his lineup. When the dust from Game 4 settled and the Tigers emerged with a 7-3 win to tie the series at 2-2, Leyland looked like a genius. With Jake Peavy taking […]

Red Sox Advance to ALCS with 3-1 Win Over Rays

They may be itchy, they may be unruly, but the beards will live to grow another day. The Boston Red Sox will be playing in the American League Championship Series. Shane Victorino drove in the go-ahead run in the 7th inning with an infield hit, Craig Breslow recorded five huge outs in relief of Jake […]

As Postseason Unfolds, Starting Pitching Will Remain Critical for Red Sox

The Red Sox now own a 2-0 lead in the ALDS against the Tampa Bay Rays and have demonstrated prolific offensive prowess, solid starting pitching, and lock down relief pitching. However, as the post season continues to unfold, it is the starting pitching staff that will prove to be more crucial than anything else. Starting […]

Which Starting Pitcher Should Be the Red Sox Ace Come October?

The Boston Red Sox lead the American League East by one-and-a-half measly games over the Tampa Bay Rays. If I learned anything from 2011, it’s never to assume the Red Sox will make the playoffs. (Thankfully my glasses are protecting me from my natural instinct of clawing my eyes out at the mere mention of […]

When Clay Buchholz Returns, Ryan Dempster Should Move to Red Sox Bullpen

Clay Buchholz is scheduled for a rehab outing with the Lowell Spinners on Sunday, according to the Boston Herald. With that being said, the Boston Red Sox would either need to place one of its current five starters on the DL or find a spot for them in the bullpen. The best option is probably […]

Jake Peavy Better Than Advertised in First Four Starts with Red Sox

Jake Peavy may not be an ace in the Boston Red Sox rotation, but he has been a ┬áproven commodity as a starting pitcher since the trade from the Chicago White Sox back on July 30. In four starts with the Red Sox, the 32-year-old has a 4.18 ERA and a 1-1 record, but really […]

2012 Blockbuster Trade a Big Win for Red Sox and Dodgers

When the Boston Red Sox visit the Los Angeles Dodgers this weekend, the anniversary of the blockbuster trade the teams agreed upon last summer will remind us of how far both sides have come in rebuilding greatness. The trade seemed incredibly one-sided on the surface, as the Dodgers received three significant big league players capable […]

Video: Former Red Sox SS Iglesias With Unreal Barehanded Play

God, I miss Jose Iglesias. I’m not going so far as to say that I wouldn’t pull the trigger 10 times out of 10 on the three-team trade that brought Jake Peavy to the Boston Red Sox. After all, that’s what Xander Boegarts is in Pawtucket for. Nevertheless, I do truly miss watching Iglesias make […]

Red Sox Should Extend Jon Lester’s Contract

After Dustin Pedroia received a seven-year $100 million contract extension from the Red Sox, the question could be raised as to which other members of the team are due for similar contracts, especially aces Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz. But if only one of these pitchers could receive such a contract, which would be a […]
