Boston Red Sox 2010 Report Card: Outfield

The 2010 outfield had large shoes to fill with the departure of Jason Bay to the Mets. With J.D. Drew and Jacoby Ellsbury coming of strong 2009 campaigns and veteran Mike Cameron in the fold, the Boston outfield seemed poised to have a good year.  Sadly this was not the case, but the disappointing outfield […]

Red Sox Play Spoilers in 8-4 Defeat of New York

If you can’t make the playoffs, the next-best thing to do is spoil the Yankees’ hopes of winning home-field advantage throughout the first two rounds. That’s exactly what the Red Sox did Sunday, ending their season with an 8-4 victory over the Evil Empire. As a result, the Yankees are relegated to the Wildcard. J.D. […]

Is Jayson Werth Worth It?

Since Theo Epstein was handed the reigns to the Boston Red Sox, the team has only failed to reach the postseason one time, in 2006. While the 2010 season is almost certainly going to become the second “failed” season for Theo’s team, it has been a year of understandable disappointment. Without Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, […]

Red Sox Hold Off Yankees Again For 7-3 Win

Behind the masterful performance of Jon Lester, the Red Sox took down the Pinstripes 7-3 on Saturday in New York. Lester, who will be gunning for win #20 in his final start of the year, had a perfect game through 4.0 innings and a no-no through 5.1. He only gave up two hits to go […]

Ortiz Drives in 4 as Red Sox Dominate Orioles

It was something David Ortiz had experienced over 300 times before the season even began. It was something Josh Reddick had experienced once. Yet Wednesday night at Fenway, the Red Sox superstar and the Red Sox call-up experienced the same thing: the joy of the home run. Ortiz and Reddick each homered to right, and […]

The Forgotten Red Sox Avoid Sweep, Beat A’s

With the Red Sox pretty much out of the playoff chase, and the Patriots regular season starting off with an impressive win on Sunday against the Bengals, whatever the Red Sox did Sunday really didn’t matter. Whether you care or not, the Red Sox still have to play out the September schedule, meaning they did […]

Red Sox on Wrong End of Walk-off

If nothing else, this season has been full of drama for the Red Sox. This time, it was another trough rather than a crest, and the Rays walked off with a win 3-2 in 10 innings. The Sox took the lead in the 4th when Adrian Beltre hit a sac fly following a single from […]

Lackey, Scutaro Carry Red Sox Over Mariners

All the talk at Fenway Park on Monday night was about the possible return of Johnny Damon and all the rain that continued to fall in the Boston area. Despite the distractions, the Red Sox and Mariners did indeed start their three-game series at Fenway on Monday, with the inconsistent John Lackey squaring off against […]

Red Sox Walk Off With Win In Extra Frames

The Red Sox certainly have a flare for the dramatic. One day after having their tuchases handed to them, the Sox walked off with a win in 11 innings 5-4. The game progressed with both starting pitchers throwing well, effectively scattering hits/walks/errors to prevent any offense from occurring, until the 3rd, that is. With one […]

Red Sox Stay Perfect Against Halos With 7-5 Win

The Red Sox just kept on rolling Wednesday. They beat the Angels 7-5 to take a 9-0 edge in the season series, with the final game coming Thursday. It didn’t take the Sox long to take command, as Dustin Pedroia walked, stole 2nd, and advanced to 3rd on a throwing error in the 1st, and […]

Lester Cools Down Rangers’ Bats as Red Sox Win 3-1

It seemed all too familiar heading into the ninth inning on Saturday night. The starter pitches a gem, leaving the bullpen to deliver the last three outs. What seems like an easy task, at least for most major league teams, has become Terry Francona’s White Whale. For the past two nights, the Red Sox looked […]

Red Sox Suffer 2nd Straight Crushing Loss, Fall to Rangers in Extras

After a devastating loss to close the Toronto series, in which the Red Sox held a 5-2 lead entering the ninth inning on Thursday but managed to lose 6-5, the Red Sox hitters did what they could to show they were not negatively affected by Thursday’s disaster. The Red Sox knocked out five home runs, […]

Sox Pound Blue Jays, Gain Ground in Wild Card Race

It was the kind of offensive display that any pitching staff would salivate over. The boys of summer needed a laugher in their favor for a change, and got it on Wednesday night, as the Boston Red Sox out-slugged the Toronto Blue Jays on their way to a 10-1 victory. While the Yankees managed to avoid […]

Homers Fly Like Canadian Geese as Red Sox Out-Slug Blue Jays

After splitting with the Yankees, the faintest of playoff hopes remains for the Boston Red Sox. But to keep that hope from dying, they would need to continue to dominate their rivals from north of the Niagara. The Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays began their four-game series Tuesday night at the Rogers Center […]

Red Sox Throw Away Rubber Match But Get It Back

The “Seinfeld” spirit is alive and well with Detroit, who handed the Red Sox a 4-3 victory after Boston handed back a 3-0 lead. The biggest enemy of both sides, at least early on, was the Sun, which led to Marco Scutaro singling on a pop-up to short, then stealing 2nd. Even with J.D. Drew […]
