Declarmen Joins Okajima With Yankees

The legacy of any player to spend time in the Red Sox organization is established when his time at the organization ends and he moves on in his career. The exception to this is former Sox players whose paths lead them to the rival Yankees. This scenario has popped up multiple times this offseason, as […]

South End Baseball Success Stories: Delcarmen and Beyond

Delcarmen, Stars, and South End Baseball There’s a reason Manny Delcarmen’s name is being floated about a potential return to Boston, and that’s because you can never discount a favorite son returning home. The Hyde Park native and West Roxbury High School graduate was a second-round draft pick by Boston in 2000.  The pick made Delcarmen the first draftee […]

Manny Back in Boston?

Well, maybe not Manny Ramirez, but possibly good ‘ole friend Manny Delcarmen. The Boston native was shipped out of Beantown on August 31 in wake of his recent struggles with the Red Sox. Even though he struggled in 2009 and 2010, the Colorado Rockies still coveted his services; why you may ask? That is beyond […]

Red Sox Trade Manny Delcarmen to Rockies, Waive White Flag

It’s amazing how quickly things turn around. A week ago, the Red Sox made a bold move in claiming Johnny Damon off waivers in an effort to add outfield help as the Sox pushed toward the playoffs. Johnny Damon said “Screw You” to Theo Epstein in not so many words, and the Red Sox arrived […]

Dice-K, Red Sox Wilt in Stifling Texas Heat

On another scorching hot day in Texas, the Red Sox needed a win to keep pace in the playoff race, but a win is hard to come by lately against Rangers lefty C.J. Wilson, wh0 entered the game at 10-5 with a 3.30 ERA and .216 opponents batting average. On the mound for the Red […]

Sox, Lackey Fall in New York

If you were wondering how long the Sox could keep it up against the hated Yankees, wonder no more; New York struck back against Boston’s relatively poor bats and pitching. Oh sure, it started well enough; Victor Martinez started the scoring in the 2nd with a jack out to left, followed by doubles from Adrian […]

Lackey Flirts With No-Hitter, Red Sox Survive Scare in Seattle

The much-maligned John Lackey flirted with a no-hitter into the eighth inning on Thursday night against the light-hitting Mariners, but settled for allowing just two hits and one unearned run (on a second-inning passed ball) over eight innings. The Sox entered the ninth with a 6-1 lead, and the bullpen promptly imploded on cue. It […]

Youkilis Heroic in Extras, Sox Topple Rangers 3-2

On a night when new Ranger Cliff Lee looked poised to post his second complete game in as many outings, Kevin Youkilis stole the show. Youkilis doubled in the tying run in the ninth inning then looped a game-winning bases loaded sacrifice fly to come from behind and win the game 3-2. Boston’s ninth-inning rally […]

Red Sox 2010 Second Half Preview

With the 2010 Midsummer Classic in the books, after Joe Girardi screwed the American League out of homefield advantage in the World Series, it’s time to look ahead. The unofficial second half of the season will get underway for your Boston Red Sox Thursday night at Fenway Park, with the opener of a four-game series […]

Boston Red Sox – Team of Broken Dreams (And Ribs, And Feet)

We all know the situation; the Red Sox are taking on injuries like the Titanic took on water. It’s not a pretty sight. They’re now three games behind the Rays for the Wild-card, and five behind the Yankees for the division. They went 4-6 in their last 10 games before the All Star break, while […]

Manny Delcarmen Placed on Disabled List

OK, we know the bullpen has pitched very poorly. But is it really this bad? The worst member of the crew as of late, Manny Delcarmen, has apparently been pitching with right forearm strain for a week, and the results have been atrocious. Delcarmen has allowed nine runs over his last three appearances, which span […]

Bullpen Blues – Sox Fall to Rays 9-4

This is why they play the game. After the Red Sox rolled over the Rays the night before, Tampa Bay, with their ace Matt Garza on the mound, was ready for some payback. Working Daisuke Matsuzaka for 29 first inning pitches was an ominous start, but Dice-K buckled down, allowing just three runs over his […]

Manny’s Fireworks Not Enough in Game 2

Manny was Manny again at Fenway Saturday. The same chorus of cheers and boos greeted him, he played DH, and he lost, 5-4 on a walk-off single. But more on that later. After six straight outs, Manny led off the 2nd inning with a single, then stole 2nd base when James Loney struck out. Victor […]

Meet Boof Bonser

When the Boston Red Sox traded for Boof Bonser over the winter, it flew under the radar a little bit. For good reason. A casual baseball fan may know his name, you don’t forget a name like Boof. Sad to say, most of Mr. Bonser’s notoriety comes from merely that, his name. This will be […]

Philly Phlunks in Boston Yet Again

One night after a 12-2 trouncing of the Philadelphia Phillies at Fenway Park, Boston defeated Philadelphia one more time, by the incredibly close score of 10-2. Big news was made before the game began when Daisuke Matsuzaka, freshly recovered from a food-poisoning-induced vomiting Wednesday, was scratched from his starts just moments before the game began.
