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 […]

One More Inning Too Much To Ask For From Boston

Three more outs. Three runs ahead. No problem? Not for the 29 other teams, anyway. The Boston Red Sox were in that exact position Thursday, but gave up a four-run 9th inning to Toronto, blowing the game 6-5. Both teams jostled for positioning during the first two innings, until the Red Sox got their first […]

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 […]

Orale Papi! David Ortiz Wins In The 9th (This Time)

When a grand slam isn’t enough, try it again. It may not have been a homer, but David “Big Papi” Ortiz hit a walk-off double, driving in his seventh RBI in the 9th inning in two nights. It didn’t start out so well, and didn’t look good until the end; Miguel Cabrera thrust a spear […]

The Couch Potato Report: Sox, Softball, and Snooki

During the 2008 Presidential election, we heard both Barack Obama and John McCain use the rhetorical expression “you can’t put lipstick on a pig” multiple times as their respective campaigns waged on towards election day. One of my friends from across the pond has a different way of saying the same thing… “you can’t polish […]

Buchholz Rusty in Return, Red Sox Lose 6-4 to A’s

This wasn’t the outing Clay Buchholz had been waiting for.  Buchholz, making his first start since an injury running the bases in San Francisco last month forced him onto the DL, struggled after the long layoff. Buchholz lasted just four plus innings, facing two batters in the fifth, and gave up five runs – all […]

Red Sox 2010 Second Half Preview

With the 2010 Midsummer Classic in the books, after Joe Girardi screwed the American League out of homefield advantage in the World Series, it’s time to look ahead. The unofficial second half of the season will get underway for your Boston Red Sox Thursday night at Fenway Park, with the opener of a four-game series […]

Red Sox Farm System: 2010 Harvest

Jacoby Ellsbury. Mike Cameron. Mike Lowell. Josh Beckett. Daisuke Matsuzaka. Dustin Pedroia. Manny Delcarmen. Jeremy Hermida. Victor Martinez. Jason Varitek. The Boson Red Sox have lost a player with the ability to play every position except shortstop (and even then Pedroia could but likely never would) to the disabled list this year. Starters and relievers, […]

Boston Red Sox – Team of Broken Dreams (And Ribs, And Feet)

We all know the situation; the Red Sox are taking on injuries like the Titanic took on water. It’s not a pretty sight. They’re now three games behind the Rays for the Wild-card, and five behind the Yankees for the division. They went 4-6 in their last 10 games before the All Star break, while […]

Missing Nomar: The Red Sox Shortstop Search Continues

Fourteen players have started at shortstop since the beginning of the 2004 season: Nomar Garciaparra, Pokey Reese, Cesar Crespo, Ricky Gutierrez, Mark Bellhorn, Orlando Cabrera, Edgar Renteria, Royce Clayton, Alex Cora, Alex Gonzalez, Julio Lugo, Dustin Pedroia, Jed Lowrie and Nick Green. Only Gonzalez, Cora, Lugo and Renteria made more than 100 starts at the […]

Red Sox Decline Option On Alex Gonzalez

On Sunday, the Red Sox declined the $6 million option they held on Alex Gonzalez for the 2010 season.  By declining his option the Red Sox find themselves without an everyday shortstop on the roster.  Is this the end of Gonzalez’s second stint with the Red Sox or is free agency a more favorable route […]

Red Sox Take Momentum Into Postseason

The Red Sox finished their final game of the season with a back and forth 12-7 win over the Cleveland Indians to complete a four-game sweep. The game started on a stomach churning moment when Clay Buchholz surrendered a leadoff home run just three pitches into the game. David Ortiz helped the Sox take the […]

Lowrie, Green Not the Answer for the Red Sox

Eight. That is the number of shortstops that have seen regular playing time since the Red Sox traded away everyone’s favorite player and hometown hero Nomar Garciaparra in 2004. Of those eight, only one has been a success: Orlando Cabrera. As badly as the Red Sox front office has struck out with the shortstop position, […]

Sox Suffer Through Worst Week of the Season

After a good end to the series in Baltimore last Sunday, the Red Sox had an off-day followed by a trip down to the Trop in Tampa Bay for a short two-game series with the Rays followed by a trip to New York for a longer four-game series with the Yankees over the weekend. Neither […]

Report: Red Sox Claim Cristian Guzman

The Red Sox lost Jed Lowrie to the disabled list again with a strained forearm, and without Julio Lugo, are left with the slumping Nick Green and the recently acquired Chris Woodward to play shortstop. Understandably, Theo Epstein is not impressed with the tandem, and is apparently zeroing in on another shortstop, according to the […]
