Red Sox Actively Talking to Cubs About Matt Garza

According to ESPN.COM’S Buster Olney, the Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs are “actively talking” about a possible trade with pitcher Matt Garza. Olney also reports that the Rangers, Blue Jays, Indians and Dodgers are interested in acquiring Garza. The Boston Red Sox sent scouts to watch Garza’s last start against the Oakland Athletics on […]

Red Sox in ‘Aggressive’ Pursuit of Ryan Dempster

With the July 31st trade deadline approaching in a few weeks, the rumors of the baseball trade market will rapidly heat up, and the Red Sox will need to define themselves as buyers or sellers towards competing in the 2012 season. According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the Sox are looking to add Chicago Cubs starter […]

Dealing with the Cubs: Thoughts on Matt Garza, Theo Epstein, & Compensation

Spring Training is only getting closer and the Red Sox still find themselves with only 3/5 of a legitimate, albeit injury prone rotation. Nevertheless, Boston seems content riding the course, with low risk (and probably low reward) moves. Does Aaron Cook get you excited? It shouldn’t. Futhermore, the Sox seem unwilling to pony up for […]

Red Sox Trade Rumors: Carlos Beltran, Matt Garza, Andre Ethier

The Red Sox have not been shy about making moves at the trade deadline and this year may be no different.  Despite a number of close races around baseball, some teams are preparing to be sellers as July 31st nears.  Carlos Beltran, Matt Garza and Andre Ethier are a few of the names that have […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: Pitchers and Catchers Diamonds in the Rough

Today, we wrap up our “Diamonds in the Rough” series with a very shallow position, a very deep position, and a position I hardly want to devote any real time to at all. Catching, as it seems to be year in and year out, features one the shallowest groups of top-tier talent at any position […]

Wakefield, Sloppy Sox Swept Away by Rays

And just like that, the team held together by strings finally fell apart. The Red Sox, who are fielding practically half of what they had in mind for the Opening Day lineup, dropped their third straight game in Tampa on Wednesday, falling to David Price, who earned his 12th win of the season. Price allowed […]

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 […]

Live Blog: Red Sox at Tampa Bay – 9/2

There are several things that CAN be done indoors that just shouldn’t be. It might be possible to do things like camp out, or drive, or fish or have a cookout indoors, but why even bother? It’s just wrong. Add baseball to that list. It’s POSSIBLE to play it indoors, as the Red Sox will […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 4 (4-27 – 5-3)

Apparently I am not the only one who believes that Kansas City’s Zack Greinke is in trouble. The good people over at Sports Illustrated have it in for the young ace as evident by the fact that they decided to put him on last week’s cover. Like many other stories of sports lore, the “Sports Illustrated […]

Garza Nearly Perfect Against Red Sox

Reigning ALCS MVP Matt Garza owns the Red Sox. OK, that may not be the most profound or shocking thing I’ve written lately, but it’s just plain true. He’s 7-1 against the Sox life time (including two wins over Jon Lester in the 2008 ALCS). Until the Sox figure him out, I don’t see any […]

Rays Take Series, Beat Dice-K

Apparently, the Rays are better than the rest of the world. After Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka (0-1) shut down the U.S. lineup in his last professional start, he had trouble containing the Rays Thursday afternoon at Fenway, eventually taking the loss in a 4-3 Rays win. Matt Garza picked up right where he left off […]

Sox Lose Dream as Rays Win Game 7

The Red Sox had used all their energy to get to Game 7 of the ALCS. With no Mike Lowell or even Manny Ramirez (though Jason Bay has been a nice substitute), the Red Sox clawed their way to a deciding game after being down in the series 3-1. For the first time since 2003, […]

Rays Blast Red Sox 9-1 in Game 3

The Tampa Bay Rays came into Boston for Game 3 and blasted four home runs (B.J. Upton, Evan Longoria, Rocco Baldelli, Carlos Pena) en route to a 9-1 victory. Joe Maddon’s crew now has a 2-1 series lead, and can end the series in Boston with wins in Game 4 and 5. Jon Lester was […]

View from the Monster 7-7

The week began as the road trip continued through Tampa Bay.  This season’s series with the much improved Rays continued to belong to the home teams as the Red Sox were swept in Tampa Bay for the second time this season, falling to 6-6 against the Rays and extended the losing streak to match a […]

Sox Can’t Score, Can’t Win in Tampa

The Red Sox dropped to 0-5 in Tampa Bay this season after a putrid offensive effort led to a 3-1 loss. Rays starter Matt Garza stymied the Sox over seven inning, allowing just one unearned run on five hits to go with three strikeouts. Garza is making Tampa management look like geniouses for the trade […]
