Nick Green Struck Out, but Sox Still Deserved the Win

Last Wednesday, Nick Green stood at the plate with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning, and with the tying run on third with two outs. After going down in the count 0-2, he battled back and drew a two-out walk. However, if you watched the game, Green checked his swing on […]

Live Blog: Red Sox vs. Angels, 9-16

The Red Sox beat the Angels 9-8 in dramatic fashion Thursday night, when Nick Green drew a controversial bases loaded walk to tie the game, and Alex Gonzalez laced a hit down the left field line to win it for the Sox in the ninth. Angels closer Brian Fuentes suggested umpires were too “timid” or […]

Dice-K Returns in Possible Playoff Preview

Daisuke Matsuzaka will make his return to the Major Leagues for the first time since June after a long stint in the minors ostensibly to re-condition himself. He returns to face one of the American League’s best offenses in the Angels and a team, despite playing out west, that the Red Sox know quite well. […]

The Roy Halladay Trade Sweepstakes

Quite possibly the most season-altering move a team could make would be trading for an ace before the deadline to fulfill a hole in the starting rotation. We saw the benefits of that for Milwaukee last year when they acquired C.C. Sabathia and rode his arm into the playoffs. Well, fortunately for us rumor mill […]

Angels Beat Sox in 12 Innings

The bases were loaded with two outs in the top of the 12th inning. David Ortiz was at the plate. He had zero home runs to that point in the season, and sent a ball to the warning track earlier in the game. He was due for a big hit, but all he needed was […]

Angels Bounce Back, Beat Sox 8-4

The Red Sox got off to a fast start off minor league journeyman Matt Palmer, scoring two runs in each of the first two innings to lead 4-0. Jason Bay slammed his 10th HR, a two-run shot, in the first inning. Nick Green doubled home a run in the second and Jacoby Ellsbury had an RBI […]

Red Sox Finally Take Series From Rays, Close in on East Lead

Lately, it seems that any series involving the Yankees is sure to get the Red Sox on track.  Coming off the miserable trip to Tampa Bay, where they dropped three of four, the Red Sox visited the new Yankee Stadium for the first time and left unblemished, sweeping the brief two-game set. They split another […]

Red Sox Start Season Slowly

The Red Sox opened this week with the team that ended their 2008 campaign in the Americal League Championship Series, the Rays, at home and then ventured out west for a series with the Angels.  The team dropped two of three in each series, averting what could be a disasterous start, but digging a bit […]

Benches Clear in Sox Loss to Angels

The Angels did their best to rattle Josh Beckett, and it may have worked as the Angels beat the Red Sox. In the first inning, Bobby Abreu called time while Beckett was starting his delivery, causing the hot-headed ace to fire his pitch towards Abreu’s head. He didn’t seem to have intent in hitting Abreu, […]

Bay Launches Two HRs in Sox Win

Jason Bay is doing his best to help Red Sox forget about Manny Ramirez. After an acrobatic yet questionable catch in left field (a play Manny would have never made), Bay blasted a HR to give the Sox a 4-3 lead. He then launched a second HR in the ninth inning that became a very […]

Emotional Angels Soar over Red Sox

Fresh off the tragic death of pitcher Nick Adenhart, the Angels took the field for the first time without their lost teammate Friday night to face the Red Sox. After etching Adenhart’s initials in the dirt on the mound, Jered Weaver proceeded to allow just one unearned run in 6 2/3 innings. He also struck […]

Angels Pitcher Nick Adenhart Killed in Car Crash

The Red Sox are in town today to complete a series against the Rays before they head off to face the Angels, who are currently dealing with a major crisis. Angels rookie pitcher Nick Adenhart, just hours after tossing six shutout innings in LA’s loss to Oakland, was killed in a hit-and-run car crash. He […]

Where Will Manny Ramirez Sign?

One of the great things about this offseason is that everything is developing so slowly that you can really get a good chance to speculate on the destinations of players. In this case we’re going to be looking at Manny Ramirez, the very polarizing player, with the agent who sometimes puts out absurd demands for […]

Red Sox Down Angels Again; Face Familiar Foe in Rays

The Red Sox and Angels met in the postseason for the fourth time and like each previous battle, the Red Sox prevailed.  The Angels won the third game of the series to stave off elimination for a day and broke the Sox’ 11-game postseason win streak in this series.  As expected, pitching dominated the series, […]

John Lackey Says Angels Are the Better Team

It’s understandable that John Lackey was disappointed after losing to the Red Sox again in the ALDS. It’s also understandable that Lackey is angry…but this angry and unreasonable? Are the Angels really better than the Red Sox? How could that be possible after losing the Division Series 3-1? Well…Lackey said it: “We lost to a […]
