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 […]

Buchholz Falters as Angels Batter Reeling Red Sox

The Red Sox are in free fall, there’s no denying it anymore. The best pitcher on the staff of late has been Clay Buchholz, and not even he could stop the bleeding as Boston fell to the visiting Los Angeles Angels 7-3. The team has lost three straight, dropping to 59-65 on the season. Buchholz […]

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. Both teams are currently not qualified for the postseason, they aren’t receiving the level of consistent starting pitching they’d expect from big names, and both teams have high-priced underperforming big names filling up the roster. Yet […]

Fielder HRs, NL Pitchers Shutdown AL to Win All-Star Game; Beckett Hurt

Adrian Gonzalez may have out-homered Milwaukee’s Prince Fielder at the Home Run Derby, but Fielder’s home run mattered most Tuesday night at the 82nd All-Star Game at Chase Stadium in Phoenix. Fielder’s three-run home run off Texas’ C.J. Wilson in the fourth inning drove in the winning runs, and National League pitchers limited American League […]

Sox’ Bats Show Life In Win Over Angels

It’s been no secret that the Sox offense has struggled in the early part of the 2011 season. After a 9-5 win over the Los Angeles Angels, we may know what this offense is really capable of. To say the Sox have struggled with runners in scoring position would be an understatement. The Red Sox […]

Kalish Hits Grand Slam, Red Sox Top Angels 6-0

The Red Sox entered Tuesday’s contest with the Angels 5.5 games behind both the Yankees and Rays for first place in the AL East and Wild Card. The Yankees and Rays, of course, both won their games. How did the Red Sox do? The Sox countered with another dominant performance from their budding ace Clay […]

Lackey Beats Angels in Return to LA

Showered with a steady chorus of boos for much of the game in his return to Los Angeles (or is it Anaheim?), John Lackey had his third straight dominating start since the All-Star Break as the Red Sox rotation now looks like one of the best in all of baseball. Lackey, a workhorse through and […]

Angels Score Three Runs in Seventh Inning to Sink Sox, Lead Series 2-0

The Red Sox have dug themselves into a very deep hole now. Even with Josh Beckett leading the way, Boston’s bats couldn’t come through as they suffered a 4-1 loss and go down 2-0 in the ALDS. L.A.’s Jered Weaver followed John Lackey’s dominating performance in game one with an equally impressive outing as he […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 18 (8-3 – 8-9)

Have you ever thought about your entrance music? If you were a UFC fighter, boxer, closer, or whatever else you can think of, what would you want played when you entered a game or a match? I would choose “For Whom The Bell Tolls” by Metallica. The ominous ringing of a bell combined with heavy […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 10 (6-8 – 6-14)

This upcoming week is Week 11 in the fantasy baseball world and that would then mean that next week is Week 12. The special thing about that? That is when midseason leagues start! 2009 will be my first year in embarking on the midseason league journey. The league I am in is just a nice gathering […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 3 (4-20 – 4-26)

Just a quick update on my three leagues. I am in the top 6 in two of them and am in dead last in one of them. Ironically, after each draft, I loved my team the most in my last place league and hated the offenses in the two leagues I am doing well in. […]

Emotional Angels Soar over Red Sox

Fresh off the tragic death of pitcher Nick Adenhart, the Angels took the field for the first time without their lost teammate Friday night to face the Red Sox. After etching Adenhart’s initials in the dirt on the mound, Jered Weaver proceeded to allow just one unearned run in 6 2/3 innings. He also struck […]

Ellsbury Leads Beckett-less Sox to Win

Red Sox ace was scratched from his start against the Angels with a bit of neck pain. If it could actually keep Josh Beckett out of a scheduled start, then it must have been a lot of neck pain. Without Beckett, righty David Pauley started in a pinch and lasted 4 1/3 innings after allowing […]

8/18 Schilling vs Jered Weaver

Schilling might be a great stopper for the Sox. But the best way to guarantee a win is to keep Gagne from getting to the park. Gagne has pitched twice against the Angels this year. Early in the year he shut them out for 8 innings. And on Aug 6th Curt got the loss after […]
