Mike Cameron: Terrible for the Red Sox, But a Terrible Signing?

Did you hear that Mike Cameron doesn’t play for the Red Sox anymore? If you didn’t, don’t worry about it. His departure wasn’t met with much fanfare. His trade to the Marlins was as quiet as his play for the Sox. Touted as a strong veteran presence when he arrived, his legacy with the Red […]

Mike Cameron Designated For Assignment, Vows ‘I’ll Be Back’

In one of the worst signings in Theo Epstein’s tenure, the Red Sox have finally cut ties with veteran outfielder Mike Cameron, designating him for assignment on Thursday. Assuming no one claims him on waivers, the Red Sox will be on the hook for the rest of his $3.6 million salary this season. “I need […]

How Will the Red Sox Solve Their Outfield Woes?

According to the Boston Herald, Carl Crawford went on “six 90-foot jogs” Tuesday and is improving, but will still be sidelined for at least two more weeks, leaving a gaping hole in the outfield. After Crawford’s injury and the recent four-game losing-streak versus San Diego and Pittsburgh, the lack of depth and production out of […]

7-Run 7th Gives Red Sox Second Sweep at Yankee Stadium

It took three hours and 27 minutes of a rain delay and then seven innings of actual baseball Thursday night for history to repeat itself, but repeat it did. Josh Beckett beat CC Sabathia for the third time this season, and the Red Sox scored seven runs in the top of the seventh to beat […]

Red Sox Win 7-0 To Complete Sweep Of Angels

The Red Sox completed their sweep of the LA Angels of Anaheim, celebrating Easter with a 7-0 win behind John Lackey.  Lackey pitched eight scoreless innings, giving up six hits and one walk while striking out six.  The Red Sox got their eighth win in the last nine games and now are only one win away from being […]

Beckett Comes Through as Red Sox Beat Blue Jays

Somehow, the Red Sox managed to get the 4-1 win over Toronto. You can thank Toronto starter Jo-Jo Reyes for that, thanks to his early struggles. Boston really had trouble afterwards, but they had enough to win thanks to Beckett’s help. A single, walk, single and double to start the 1st gave Boston the 2-0 […]

Beckett’s Best Too Much For Yankees; Red Sox Win First Series of 2011

Through their first eight games, the Boston Red Sox starting staff had thrown a league-fewest 16 1-2-3 innings. Sunday night at Fenway Park, Josh Beckett threw nearly half that in just one start. Beckett’s best pitching performance since a June 2009 complete-game shutout of the Atlanta Braves sustained the Red Sox through six innings of […]

Red Sox 2011 Outfield Preview: Mike Cameron

Sports of Boston is continuing its week-long preview of the Red Sox outfield with last year’s starting center fielder, Mike Cameron. Brought in last year to take over centerfield and mentor Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Cameron went down with a bad case of the injury bug in 2010. When all was said and done Cameron played […]

Red Sox 2011 Outfield Preview: Jacoby Ellsbury

Sports of Boston is continuing its week-long preview of the Red Sox outfield with center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury. Today is Truck Day, the unofficial start of spring for Red Sox fans, and certainly a welcome sight for the Red Sox embattled center fielder. After missing most of the 2010 season with a rib injury, Ellsbury […]

Boston Red Sox 2010 Report Card: Outfield

The 2010 outfield had large shoes to fill with the departure of Jason Bay to the Mets. With J.D. Drew and Jacoby Ellsbury coming of strong 2009 campaigns and veteran Mike Cameron in the fold, the Boston outfield seemed poised to have a good year.  Sadly this was not the case, but the disappointing outfield […]

Is Jayson Werth Worth It?

Since Theo Epstein was handed the reigns to the Boston Red Sox, the team has only failed to reach the postseason one time, in 2006. While the 2010 season is almost certainly going to become the second “failed” season for Theo’s team, it has been a year of understandable disappointment. Without Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, […]

Red Sox Harpooned By Mariners

Yet again, Boston had a chance to ride decent pitching to a win, but they completely screwed it up again, giving way to the Mariners 4-2. The Mariners rank 27th out of 30 of all major league teams, and are one of four not above .400, and don’t have Cliff Lee, but still, the Red […]
