Is Will Middlebrooks Back for Good?

This time last year, it looked as though the Red Sox had secured the third base position for years to come. Will Middlebrooks got called up to the big leagues in May, and the combination of his big bat and fielding ability at the hot corner had fans dreaming about the future. His play was […]

Slumping Will Middlebrooks Heading to Pawtucket

It would appear that questions surrounding the left side of the Red Sox infield have been temporarily answered. Will Middlebrooks was sent down to Triple-A Pawtucket Tuesday in a move that will hopefully help the slumping third baseman return to form and solidify for the time being Jose Iglesias and Stephen Drew as everyday starters. […]

Video: Yankees Turn 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 Triple Play

While the Boston Red Sox had an unscheduled night off thanks to rain postponing Friday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, the New York Yankees did what the Red Sox couldn’t do the two previous nights: beat the Baltimore Orioles. It was the Yankees’ fourth straight win, improving their record to 5-4 to enter into […]

Kevin Youkilis to the Yankees: Reasons and Reactions

Say it ain’t so, Youk!! Kevin Youkilis recently became the latest in a long line of Red Sox players to defect to the “dark side” and join the New York Yankees, signing a one-year deal worth a reported $12 million. It’s a deal that makes sense for both parties, as the Yankees will be without starting […]

Yankees Offering Kevin Youkilis a Deal is Fine, Red Sox Fans Should Rejoice

With Alex Rodriguez likely missing four to six months after hip surgery, which could sideline him until June, the New York Yankees need help at third base until he is fully healthy.

A Few Ways to Fix Major League Baseball

Are you someone that watches baseball?  Have you ever been to a game at Fenway, or another ballpark?  Have you ever been REALLY bored while doing these things?  If you just said “Yes,” you are not alone.

What Should the Red Sox do with Alfredo Aceves?

It’s safe to say that the 2012 season for the Red Sox was a complete disaster, from the Bobby Valentine drama to the departures of several key players, including Kevin Youkilis, Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett. Another notable headache was pitcher Alfredo Aceves. With Andrew Bailey on the disabled list to start the […]

White Sox Decline Option on Youkilis; Should Red Sox Bring Him Back?

The Chicago White Sox recently declined the $13 million option for the 2013 season on Kevin Youkilis. After all that transpired over the 2012 season for Youkilis, it is very hard to imagine him back in a Red Sox uniform. However, the idea isn’t all that crazy, and may be downright logical. The Red Sox […]

Bobby Valentine Cowardly Accuses David Ortiz of Quitting

After a horrific season in which the Boston Red Sox started bad, continued to be bad and then finished the season… bad … Bobby Valentine had a chance to walk away with some slight measure of dignity. He could’ve simply taken his firing like a man, then gone back to his gig on TV, which […]

Our Long (Red Sox) National Nightmare is Over

Back in the 1930s, a man named Frank Winter docked a pair of schooners in the small coastal town of Wiscasset, Maine. His intention was to use them to ship lumber and coal up and down the New England coast, but before the plan materialize, Winter died. The people of Wiscasset, being Mainers, weren’t about […]

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. A worse record than the San Diego Padres, Seattle Mariners, and Kansas City Royals, not to mention the playoff contending Oakland Athletics and Baltimore Orioles. And they shipped out […]

More of the Same; Red Sox Offense Quiet in Saturday Loss to Indians

The Cleveland Indians took game three of the four game series in Cleveland against the Red Sox on Saturday night. The Indians won by a score of 5-2. Franklin Morales had another strong start for the Sox, but the offense simply could not put runs on the board. Former Red Sox utility man Brent Lillibridge […]

Buchholz Dominates in Complete Game Win, Middlebrooks Injured

The Red Sox took game two of the series against Cleveland on Friday night. Behind an outstanding pitching performance from Clay Buchholz, the Sox were able to edge the Indians 3-2. The game had a “here we go again” feel to it when Asdrubal Cabrera blasted his 13th home run of the season off of […]

Could John Lackey be the Infamous “Snitch”?

Since the historic collapse last September, there have been rumors going around that there is a rat in the Boston clubhouse. Kevin Youkilis was accused of being said rat, but after being shipped off to the White Sox, the rat still seems to be at large in the Red Sox organization. That begs the question […]

Cody Ross Blasts 3-Run Walk Off Homer in 9th Against White Sox

A day after he crushed a pair of three-run home run bombs over the Green Monster, Cody Ross delivered one more blast, rallying the Sox to a 3-1 walk off win in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Chicago White Sox. In the four-game series, Ross was 7-14 with three homers and nine […]
