The Future Looks Bright for Felix Doubront

Felix Doubront is going to have a great 2013. Actually, he needs to have a great 2013. All the Red Sox do. But, if he doesn’t, I can guarantee he won’t make it to the All-Star break in the starting rotation. He’ll be in the bullpen where many believe he’s best suited. I don’t want […]

Should the Red Sox Fire Bobby V? SoB Debates…

Nick: To quote Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, this season has been nothing short of miserable. Last place in the division. Who knows how many games under .500.

The other night, on Comcast’s Mohegan Sun Sports Tonight, Gary Tanguay and Mike Felger brought up the role of a pitching coach in major league baseball.

According to multiple reports, Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell is set to join the Toronto Blue Jays as their new manager, replacing the retiring, mustache-wearing Cito Gaston. With the Jays, who feature the league’s most powerful lineup and a plethora of young, lively arms, it would appear that that Farrell is walking into a […]

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 […]

Astros Seek Red Sox Coaches for Managerial Job

The Red Sox granted the Houston Astros permission to speak with first base coach Tim Bogar and bench coach Brad Mills about the team’s managerial opening. Mills and third base coach Demarlo Hale interviewed for the Seattle Mariners open job last season, but lost out to Don Wakamatsu. “It’s pretty cool,” said Mills about the […]

Smoltz, Penny Dominate the NL – Why?

This past offseason, the Red Sox became the land of the reclamation projects. The signings of Takashi Saito, John Smoltz, and Brad Penny were seen as low-risk, high-reward moves. Saito has worked out pretty well, but Smoltz and Penny were largely seen as busts. Theo Epstein cut ties with both pitchers, who then found new […]
