Red Sox Battery Lester, Ross Take Down Cardinals for 3-2 World Series Edge

Jon Lester continued his remarkable run of World Series dominance by pitching into the eight inning again, and David Ross helped his starting pitcher with a tie-breaking double in the seventh inning to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 3-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 5 of the World Series. The […]

Jonny Gomes Powers Red Sox to Even World Series at 2-2

With two down and two runners on in the sixth inning, Jonny Gomes came up to the plate as Mike Matheny went to his bullpen after Lance Lynn (0-1) allowed a bloop hit to Dustin Pedroia and a four-pitch walk to David Ortiz. The right-handed reliever Seth Maness came in and was locating his sinker […]

Jonny Gomes, Red Sox Agree to 2-Year Deal

According to Jim Bowden of ESPN.com, the Red Sox have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with Jonny Gomes. The free agent spent last season on the Oakland Athletics and can play all over the outfield, as well as DH. This could be a perfect fit for the Red Sox, as they are looking […]

National League Dominates in 2012 All-Star Game

When the lineups for the 2012 All-Star Game from Kansas City were posted, most saw the American League as heavy favorites, especially given Justin Verlander would be pitching the first two innings. It was surprising to say the least that Verlander barely made it through the first, surrendering five runs out of the gate as […]

Robinson Cano Beats Adrian Gonzalez in AL-Dominated Home Run Derby

I won’t say that David Ortiz chose his American League teammates for Monday’s 2011 State Farm Home Run Derby at Chase Stadium in Phoenix better than Milwaukee Brewer Prince Fielder chose his from the National League. But if players were possible Holy Grails, Fielder would have long since turned to dust, whereas Ortiz would be chilling […]

Ryan Howard: Albert Pujols’ New Best Friend?

This week Ryan Howard became the newest star to be locked up for the long-term. Twenty-five million dollars a year for a player likely to be more suited as a designated-hitter than a first baseman within a year or two. The question becomes then, how much should a true first baseman, and better hitter to […]

Bay Rejects Boston’s Latest Offer

It’s looking more and more likely that Jason Bay will not be roaming left field for the Red Sox in 2010. “We don’t agree with their evaluation of the player,” agent Joe Urbon told Foxsports.com’s Ken Rosenthal. “Frankly, we have other offers on the table that are of greater interest to Jason.” Bay reportedly rejected […]

Holliday or Bay? The Sox Have Choices

Each day, it is becoming less and less clear if the Red Sox will be able to retain Jason Bay. Since Bay came to Beantown in the Manny Ramirez deal, Sox fans have gotten more then they could have asked for. This past season, he had career highs of home runs (36) and RBI (119). He has been Theo […]

Sox Will Pay if They Don’t Sign Bay

Five years, $75 to $80 million. That’s likely what it will cost the Red Sox to retain left fielder Jason Bay. The 31-year-old, now officially a free agent, reportedly passed on a last minute, four-year, $60 million deal Thursday as Boston’s exclusive negotiating window inched shut. In honor of the lengthy, costly contract agent Joe […]

Red Sox Hot Stove 2009 Preview

Five years and two days ago, the Red Sox ended an 86-year World Series drought. Today they are 18 days removed from being swept by the Angels in the ALDS. This will be a big offseason for the Red Sox because they have some glaring holes they need to fill. The team needs to acquire […]

Smoltz Looks for New Start in St. Louis

John Smoltz is preparing to make his debut in a Cardinals uniform Sunday and if St. Louis’ luck continues, he will have a stellar performance. The Cards have had some recent luck in picking up some new acquisitions. The addition of Matt Holliday turned out to be a steal. Although he is a free agent […]

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. […]

TGIF: Matt Holliday to Oakland

It was reported several days ago that the Oakland A’s acquired LF Matt Holliday from the Colorado Rockies. In order to land one of the best hitters in all of baseball, the A’s had to give up SP Greg Smith, OF Carlos Gonzalez, and CL Huston Street. Holliday has been one of the biggest offensive threats […]

TGIF: Fantasy Baseball Draft, 2009

OK, OK, I know what you’re thinking. Why the hell am I doing a draft preview for baseball now? Well frankly, I can do what I want but, that’s not the point. Let’s not lie to ourselves. As soon as the regular season ended, you were already planning your first round draft pick for next […]
