Flurry of trades leaves Red Sox in state of uncertainty

If you weren’t sure how to react to the four trades made by the Boston Red Sox on Thursday, you certainly weren’t alone. Across social media and sports talk radio, opinions ranged from high praise for the acquisition of Cuban slugger Yoenis Céspedes to outrage over the lack of a long-term return for ace Jon Lester. […]

Done Deal: Lester and Gomes to Oakland for Cespedes

It has been a whirlwind 24 hours with Jon Lester rumored to be going everywhere from Baltimore to Los Angeles. In the end, A’s GM Billy Beane was the most aggressive and was able to bring Jon Lester to Oakland.

Dustin Pedroia grants wish of 12-year old boy

On the outside, Jace Andrews of Montgomery, Texas, appears no different from any other 12-year old boy. He likes to play sports, including baseball, and hopes to someday work at either Fenway Park or ESPN. The ambitious son of John and Julie Andrews has battled adversity since the beginning of his life, which includes a nine-hour […]

Red Sox Should Invest in Youth; Look Beyond 2014

What exactly was the 2013 season for the Boston Red Sox? A miraculous journey from Spring Training underdogs to bearded kings of October? A triumphant year of destiny inspired by the tragic events of the Boston Marathon? Hardly. The reality is that the 2013 World Series was purchased by the Red Sox, as free agents like Mike […]

Bats Come Alive During Red Sox Turnaround

Twenty-six runs scored over a ten game span is bad, that is an average of 2.6 runs per game. A barren wasteland of offensive production. No wonder the Sox lost ten games in a row. In the last three games the Sox have averaged six runs per game. Not surprisingly, with that level of offensive firepower, […]

Photo: David Ortiz Takes Selfie with Obama, But Was It Staged?

If a regular, everyday picture is worth a thousand words, what is a #selfie of David Ortiz and POTUS Barack Obama worth? 2,000 words? 10,000 words? Several Bill Simmons mailbags? Mastercard priceless? Well, maybe not exactly priceless. It seems as if Samsung might have had a little skin in the game after signing a deal […]

Jonny Gomes Sports American Flag Jacket for Red Sox Ceremony at White House

The defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox have already begun the 2014 campaign with a 2-1 loss at Baltimore Monday, but the team took time during their off-day Tuesday to visit with President Barack Obama at the White House.

Managing Expectations: A Red Sox Fan’s Guide to Overcoming the World Series Hangover

What do you do for an encore after winning the World Series? This is the question that has been nagging me more and more as the 2014 season rapidly approaches. (I guess it’s already here, but do games in a British penal colony really count? I say no.) Unless the Boston Red Sox pull a […]

What Will Replace the Beards for the Red Sox in 2014?

Ladies and gentlemen, spring training is here, the 2014 season has begun, and the Boston Red Sox title defense is underway. Pitchers and catchers have reported to Fort Meyers. Dustin Pedroia has already taken batting practice. Ryan Dempster decided he could do without $13 million and took a sabbatical. And true to their word, the […]

A Red Sox Fan’s Guide to Jonny Gomes’s Commemorative World Series Tattoo

In case you missed it, Jonny Gomes got an enormous tattoo commemorating the 2013 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox. No, seriously: How sick is this?! pic.twitter.com/ADLNlj0q2q — Mike Napoli (@MikeNapoli25) February 7, 2014 Once I got over just how incredible that tattoo is — and went out and got one inked for myself, of […]

Red Sox should pursue Padres’ outfielder Chris Denorfia

The Boston Red Sox are in need of stronger outfield depth after former center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury signed a seven-year, $153 million deal with the New York Yankees. While some appealing options on the free agent market have since signed, there does exist the possibility that the Sox could make a trade with the San […]

Jacoby Ellsbury Signed with the Yankees: Now What?

We’ve seen this before; a popular Red Sox center fielder whose game is predicated on speed signs with the arch-rival Yankees. One’s gut reaction says this is exactly like the Johnny Damon situation in 2005, but if you put all the emotional muck aside, this is quite different. If over these past three years you […]

Gomes Places World Series Trophy at Boston Marathon Finish Line

The duck boat parade in Boston for the Red Sox on Saturday was a culmination of everything the team accomplished — winning the World Series in six games, shocking the baseball world in doing so and putting an entire city on its back after tragedy. The Red Sox did a nice job in representing their […]

Jonny Gomes Powers Red Sox to Even World Series at 2-2

With two down and two runners on in the sixth inning, Jonny Gomes came up to the plate as Mike Matheny went to his bullpen after Lance Lynn (0-1) allowed a bloop hit to Dustin Pedroia and a four-pitch walk to David Ortiz. The right-handed reliever Seth Maness came in and was locating his sinker […]

Video: Looking at the Red Sox Celebrating ALDS Victory

You’ve seen the game, or read the recap, or scanned the box score, and have heard about and analyzed and digested and discussed the onslaught of Rays pitching changes, Farrell’s flip-flop pinch hit decisions, the X-factor Xander Bogaerts scoring the tying and insurance run anyway,Craig Breslow’s 4 Ks, Koji’s four-out save. But have you read […]
