Buchholz, Red Sox Breeze by Astros as Ortiz Hits First HR

On paper, the match up between the American League Cy Young award frontrunner in Clay Buchholz and far from perfect Philip Humber looked like a potential Boston blowout. And at least on this Thursday night at Fenway Park, the reality was close to those expectations. The Boston Red Sox improved to an impressive 15-7 mark […]

Red Sox Sellout Streak Ends, Hanrahan Blows Save in Loss to Orioles

After 820 games, the widespread speculation regarding the legitimacy of the Boston Red Sox‘s sellout streak can finally be put to rest. The longest such streak in major professional sports, both for the regular season (794 games) and overall (820 including the postseason), has officially come to an end.

How Many Games Will the 2013 Red Sox Win?

It’s never easy to try and predict how many games any team will win, especially in baseball, and especially entering a year where the Boston Red Sox find themselves in one of the strongest divisions — on paper, that is. It’s unclear as to how things will really play out, especially with all the players who […]

Boston Red Sox Pitchers Combine to Allow One Run Against Northeastern, Boston College

Spring training is off and rolling and the Boston Red Sox showed some pretty good signs against Northeastern and Boston College on Thursday afternoon. It may have been against college teams, but there was no real sign of any wildness for any of the relievers that were thrown onto the mound in the wins. Against […]

2013 Red Sox Depth Chart: Catcher – Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Ryan Lavarnway, David Ross, Mike Napoli

Boston’s crowded cluster of catching candidates has been a hot topic this offseason. Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Ryan Lavarnway, both of whom present some upside with significant question marks entering 2013, though it appears the team is prepared to start Saltalamacchia when the season kicks off. It also seems likely that the team will utilize free […]

Red Sox Spring Training Fantasy Rundown: Four-Headed Catching Monster

Last season, the Red Sox had one strong starting option at the catcher position at the start of the season. After this past offseason, you could argue that they now have four big league catchers with the ability to produce on a day-to-day basis. However, the volatility at the first base position has resulted in one player […]

Why the Red Sox Should Not Trade Their Catchers

Mike Napoli is a 31-year-old man with a degenerative hip condition. There is no chance that he is playing catcher in a Red Sox uniform. I don’t care what he does when he most likely leaves town at the end of the year, but as long as he’s wearing a red ‘B’ on his cap […]

Why the Red Sox Should Steer Clear of the Mets’ R.A Dickey

The Boston Red Sox have made their presence known in the Winter Meetings with the aggressive signings of Mike Napoli and Shane Victorino, plugging the team’s holes at first base and right field. But the Red Sox still need to fill their biggest need: signing or trading for a starting pitcher. With several options out in […]

Red Sox Catcher Confusion in Boston?

At the beginning of this offseason, there were many questions that the Red Sox and GM Ben Cherington needed to address. One of them was probably not about the catching situation though. The team carried two catchers into the end of the 2012 season and they were Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Ryan Lavarnway. But the Red […]

Red Sox Sign Catcher David Ross

The Red Sox have signed catcher David Ross to a two-year deal worth $6.2 million. According to Ken Rosenthal, Ross will be “more than a backup but not a starter” with the Red Sox in 2013. David Ross has established himself as one of the better backup catchers in baseball. Last year with the Braves, […]

Red Sox 2012 Offseason: Rebuilding through Trades

The Boston Red Sox have a lot of choices to make this offseason, and with a relatively weak free agent class (outside of the mega contracts that will go to Josh Hamilton and Zack Greinke), the Sox are left with limited options. Their late season salary dump of Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett, and […]

Blockbuster Complete: Red Sox Trade Gonzalez, Crawford, Beckett to Dodgers

Just when you thought this 2012 Red Sox season was getting a little bit boring, Boston rocks the entire sports world. A trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers of epic proportions has been completed on this Saturday morning, sending Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, and Nick Punto to L.A. in order to help Boston […]

Back-And-Forth Slugfest Leads to Atrocious Red Sox Loss

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. Once leading 6-0 early, the Red Sox blew two notable leads in disastrous innings, the first an eight-run third for the […]

Sox Players Skip Pesky’s Funeral, Sink Lower in Fans’ Esteem

If you asked me if this team could sink any lower a week ago, I would have responded with “how could that happen?” It’s no secret the 2012 campaign has been a dark cloud on the franchise’s history. There have been plenty of reasons to dislike this team ever since September of last season. Yet […]
