Red Sox, Lester Fall to Rangers 4-2

The Red Sox ended baseball’s unofficial first half in a slump and things haven’t improved in the first series after the All-Star break. The Sox, looking to even the series with the Texas Rangers had their ace Jon Lester on the mound, but dropped the final game 4-2. Dusty Brown, called up from Pawtucket, got […]

Red Sox Topple Blue Jays 14-3

Coming off a rough four-game skid, which saw the Red Sox lose three straight to Tampa Bay, Boston was in need of a win. Maybe they were in need of a lot of runs. Maybe they were in need of a strong outing on the mound. All they needed was a win. They got all […]

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 […]

Red Sox Blow Lead And Game In The Trop

Boston almost had it, but in the end handed the Rays a 6-5 victory. Marco Scutaro started off the game with a bunt single, and despite a walk and passed ball, nothing came of it. Then the Rays started like you’d expect, with a walk and (surprise) stolen base from Ben Zobrist, who was doubled […]

Walking Wounded Sox Pull Out Win in San Francisco

It’s safe to say they needed this win. It’s been a tough interleague road trip out west for the Boston Red Sox, and they headed into Saturday’s game with the 2008 A.L. MVP Dustin Pedroia shelved for what seems to be indefinitely with a fractured left foot. Pedroia suffered the injury when he fouled a […]

Rockies Pitchers Frustrate Red Sox Hitters All Night Long

The Boston Red Sox and Colorado Rockies began a three-game series Tuesday night at Coors Field. The Red Sox were coming off of an 8-1 homestand that saw them move into second place in the AL East, tied with Tampa Bay and just a half-game behind New York. On the hill for the Red Sox […]

Lester, Pedroia Carry Sox Over Arizona

The Red Sox have thrived on interleague competition and Wednesday’s match with the visiting Diamondbacks was no exception, with the Red Sox winning 6-2. Former Baltimore Oriole nemesis Rodrigo Lopez resurfaced to face the dominant Jon Lester, but couldn’t match Lester’s seven-inning, seven-strikeout, two-run night. Dustin Pedroia, who was mired in a deep slump until recently, […]

Boston on Wrong End of Home Run Derby Against Oakland

If I came back in time and told you Boston scored eight runs Thursday, you probably would think they crushed the Athletics because of their supreme pitching staff. What supreme pitching staff? Hardly anything went right for the Red Sox, and when they tried to claw their way back into it, they always, ALWAYS, screwed […]

Ortiz, Red Sox Cap Off Impressive Month With Victory Over Royals

The Boston Red Sox finished off their month of May in suitable fashion. On New Hampshire Day at Fenway Park, the Red Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 8-1 to salvage a split of the series heading into tomorrow’s day off. After a much-needed sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays, the Sox came into this […]

Red Sox 2010 Payroll: $168 Million Sure Doesn’t Buy What it Used to

Talks of a prolonged recession and rampant unemployment have led us all to take money saving strides. We as a nation we’ve begun stretching each and every dollar, car pooling, bargain hunting, skipping concerts, and sporting events we used to go to, to steal a line from John McCain, we’re cutting our pork spending. In the meantime, Theo Epstein’s having […]

Mike Cameron’s Place in Boston’s Outfield

With center fielder Mike Cameron rehabbing successfully in Pawtucket, it won’t be long before Terry Francona deals with an important question: What should the team do with him regarding the Red Sox outfield? To be sure, he isn’t going to be taking J.D. Drew‘s place in right field; Drew is batting decently and, more importantly, […]

After Rough April, Is It Already Time For Red Sox Fans to Panic?

We know. The Red Sox just had their worst April since 1996, but are we completely screwed? No. Not yet at least. Because it’s all we’ve seen, it’s not hard to imagine that the team that has shown up is the one we’ll have all season. The truth is that things will change, whether it’s […]

Cameron, Ellsbury Placed on Disabled List

The Red Sox outfield got a little less crowded on Tuesday, as the Red Sox placed both Mike Cameron and Jacoby Ellsbury on the disabled list. Both players missed most of the weekend series against the Rays for very different ailments. Cameron first had kidney stones, and then was hospitalized on Monday for abdominal pain. […]

No-Nonsense Rays Pummel No-Offense Red Sox

Before the season, Boston concentrated on bolstering their pitching and defense, but did not think about how useless all that is without bats. It showed Sunday, as Boston was held to two walks and five runs, as they lost to the Rays, 7-1. The still winless Jon Lester took the loss, giving up all seven […]

Burrell Helps Rays Beat Red Sox Twice on Saturday

Yikes, what an ugly weekend it has been for baseball. While the Bruins and Celtics won their games indoors on Saturday, the Red Sox managed to lose two games outdoors in the rain at Fenway Park. In the first “game,” play resumed in the bottom of the ninth with the score tied 1-1. The struggling […]
