The Red Sox finally started shaking up the team this week. First, they signed Kelly Shoppach. Then, they made a pretty significant trade: Red Sox Get: Astros Get: RP Mark Melancon IF Jed Lowrie SP Kyle Weiland Melancon’s exact role with the 2012 Red Sox is not known.

How Would Aceves and Bard Work in the 2012 Starting Rotation?

Nobody will deny that the Red Sox’ starting rotation needs a major overhaul after last month’s epic collapse that caused the Red Sox to miss the playoffs despite being nine games ahead in the wild card race at the beginning of the month. Opinions vary on exactly how to fix it, however. On Wednesday, Rob […]

Red Sox Erred in Firing Francona, Should Cut Epstein Loose

It’s too late to undo firing Terry Francona, a rash decision born from the kind of rabid bloodlust that few fanbases besides Boston’s are capable of.

Such was the case Thursday night at Fenway, when a freakish broken-bat grounder led to four runs by the Tampa Bay Rays, who homered three times to beat the Red Sox, 9-2, and cut Boston’s wild card lead to three games. Broken Bat Ends Up Breaking […]

Guthrie Stymies Sox Offense, Notches Fourth Victory of Year

Sox Offense Goes Quiet, Weiland OK in 2nd Start After the Red Sox scored 15 runs on Monday night and seeing 3-13 Jeremy Guthrie on the bump on Tuesday, Sox fans may have figured it would be the same result. That was not the case on at Camden Yards, as Guthrie silenced the Red Sox […]
