Do the Blue Jays Have the Best Starting Rotation in Baseball?

One thing’s clear: the Toronto Blue Jays have made the biggest moves in baseball this offseason. Even after acquiring Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Emilio Bonifacio and other pieces from the Miami Marlins, and signing Melky Cabrera, the team made another big move, adding R.A. Dickey in a trade with the Mets. Looking at […]

Red Sox 2012 Offseason: Rebuilding through Trades

The Boston Red Sox have a lot of choices to make this offseason, and with a relatively weak free agent class (outside of the mega contracts that will go to Josh Hamilton and Zack Greinke), the Sox are left with limited options. Their late season salary dump of Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett, and […]

Clay Buchholz Delivers Another Gem in 2-1 Red Sox Win

The Red Sox snuck away on Tuesday night in Miami with a tight 2-1 victory over the Marlins, led by a strong start by Clay Buchholz. While the team still didn’t quite put up the offense numbers expected on a regular basis, they capitalized on a key mistake my the Marlins in the seventh inning […]

Big-Spending Marlins Finally Embracing Miami

I know the Marlins are a small market team. I know they do what they can with young players and then jettison them instead of paying them. I know no one wants to play for them. I know they have a horrible stadium. I know they have horrible uniforms. As long as I’ve cared about […]

How to Fix the Red Sox this Off Season

As the offseason gets underway, the Red Sox don’t particularly have that many needs. Except for a manager. And an outfielder. And a few starting pitchers. Oh and an entire new bullpen. I guess I was wrong, they do have a lot of needs. And considering the payroll, there’s not much room for an Albert […]

Red Sox Rally Late to Down White Sox 5-3 on Deadline Day

No matter his performance, the Red Sox have had a penchant for winning with Andrew Miller on the mound. The team entered Sunday 6-1 in Miller’s first 7 starts, and a late rally stretched that to 7-1 as Boston squeaked past Chicago 5-3. It was a gutsy performance for Miller, who gave up a season […]

Clinging to Last Hope, Red Sox Beat White Sox 6-1

After Sunday’s demoralizing loss to the New York Yankees, nearly all hope for the playoffs was lost. The magic number for both the Yankees and Rays to clinch the playoffs was at 1 heading into Monday’s games. Again, the resilient Red Sox bounced back to stave off elimination, and beat the White Sox in Chicago […]

Buehrle Gets First Victory Since Perfect Game, Wins 5-1

Chicago pitcher Mark Buehrle earned his first win since his perfect game on July 23, ending an eight-start stretch without a win. Sadly, Buehrle’s  victory came at the expense of the Red Sox, who lost 5-1 Monday afternoon and lost three games overall of a four-game weekend series. Buehrle scattered eight hits and two walks […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 16 (7-20 – 7-26)

I wasn’t a fan of Mark Buehrle’s perfect game. Granted, he is an established pitcher who already has a no-hitter to his credit, but I don’t know, he just doesn’t seem dominating enough to deserve such an accomplishment. Plus, this makes people completely forget about the no-hitter by San Francisco’s Jonathan Sanchez on July 10th. […]

Mark Buehrle Pitches Perfect Game

While most Americans were at work, Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle was making quick work of the Tampa Bay Rays, pitching just the 16th perfect game in modern baseball history. Buehrle, 30, already has a no-hitter on his resume and struck out six Rays while allowing no hits and no walks in Chicago’s 5-0 […]

Wakefield vs Buehrle

Game started at 3:55 and it’s a pitchers duel. Through four innings there have been two hits. Buehrle in 10 career starts against Boston is 4-3 with a 4.31 ERA. Tim Wakefield hasn’t allowed an ER in 22 innings. The Red Sox have another one big inning of offense. In the 6th, Boston knocked in […]
