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 […]

Red Sox Designate Jeremy Hermida For Assignment

According to the lovely and talented Heidi Watney of NESN, the Red Sox have designated outfielder Jeremy Hermida for assignment. Hermida has battled injuries this season, including a trip to the disabled list, after an on-field collision earlier this year with Adrian Beltre. He’s only hitting .203 with five HRs and 27 RBI. The move […]

Red Sox Harpooned By Mariners

Yet again, Boston had a chance to ride decent pitching to a win, but they completely screwed it up again, giving way to the Mariners 4-2. The Mariners rank 27th out of 30 of all major league teams, and are one of four not above .400, and don’t have Cliff Lee, but still, the Red […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Buchholz and Red Sox Shut Down Baltimore

Clay Buchholz is on fire right now. The Red Sox right-hander tossed a computer game shutout while throwing just 101 pitches as the Sox topped the Orioles 11-0. Orioles prospect Chris Tillman, acquired in the Erik Bedard trade, had trouble from “play ball” as he gave up three quick runs to the Red Sox while […]

Boston on Wrong End of Home Run Derby Against Oakland

If I came back in time and told you Boston scored eight runs Thursday, you probably would think they crushed the Athletics because of their supreme pitching staff. What supreme pitching staff? Hardly anything went right for the Red Sox, and when they tried to claw their way back into it, they always, ALWAYS, screwed […]

Ortiz, Red Sox Cap Off Impressive Month With Victory Over Royals

The Boston Red Sox finished off their month of May in suitable fashion. On New Hampshire Day at Fenway Park, the Red Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 8-1 to salvage a split of the series heading into tomorrow’s day off. After a much-needed sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays, the Sox came into this […]

Beckett Injured as Red Sox Come Back Late to Split with Yankees

Jonathan Papelbon found himself in a familiar situation Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. Once again, the go-ahead run stood at the plate and a blown save seemed likely, but Papelbon struck out Randy Winn to seal the deal for his tenth save and a 7-6 victory. Just like the first game of the series, the […]

Here’s Johnny: Our First Glimpse of Damon in a Tigers Uniform

This weekend, Red Sox Nation will get their first look at Johnny Damon in a Tigers uniform. Do we still hold a grudge? Should the Yankees have let him go? Should we have picked him up?

Wake-Up Call Win For The Sox

If the Red Sox want to get a fresh lease on the season, they’d do well to seize the spirit of Sunday’s 9-3 win over Yankees and start printing shirts with a new mantra: Win Ugly. While it certainly won’t be played on ESPNClassic anytime soon, the Sox staved off a sweep behind a steady […]

Kiss The Season Goodbye; The Red Sox Have

The Yankees won 14-3; what do you expect me to say? That’s a 24-6 loss over two days. Back under .500 again, the Red Sox (or Red Sux, depending on how angry you are) are going to screw up this season, and I for one won’t mind. There’s a lot of nauseating futility to go […]

Red Sox Sweep Halos, Yankees Series Looms

For the first time since beating the Yankees on Opening Night, the Red Sox are again above .500 (at 15-14), and it took a four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to do it. Winning the fourth game of the series on Thursday night was no easy feat, however. The Red Sox were […]

Lester, Hermida Deliver in 5-1 Win Over Angels

Through his first three outings, Jon Lester was his typical April self (0-2, 8.44 ERA). In his career in April, Lester is 3-5 with a 4.58 ERA in 16 starts, which is clearly not so impressive. He closed the month strong, but in five April starts, he went 1-2 with a 4.71 ERA. As is […]
