Red Sox Call Up Alan Embree: Lefty to the Rescue?

On Wednesday morning, the Red Sox recalled old friend Alan Embree from AAA-Pawtucket. The move will send pint-sized reliever Fabio Castro back down to Pawtucket, less than 24-hours after being called up for the struggling Scott Atchinson. (Sorry Dustin, you again are the shortest player on the Red Sox.) Embree’s contract is fitted with walk-clause that expires on Friday, meaning […]

Red Sox All-Decade Team: 2000′s

This past decade has been good to us Red Sox fans, as weird as that is to say. Up until Game 4 of the ALCS, it looked like it was going to be another 10 years of let downs. It turns out, we were wrong. With two World Championships, the Red Sox have truly been […]

Beckett Horrible in Sox Extra-Inning Loss

The Red Sox offense exploded for four home runs in Game 2, and most of the time it’s good enough for a win. Well, that’s unless you have the 2008 version of Josh Beckett on the hill to start the game, and the 2008 version of Mike Timlin to close it out. Josh Beckett absolutely […]

View from the Monster 6-23

The Red Sox had a great start to the week, taking two of three on the road from one of the Senior Circuit’s better ballclubs in the Phillies. Cole Hamels showed why he is regarded among the best pitchers in the game with a dominating first game performance. He allowed back-to-back home runs to Dustin […]

Varitek, Lowell Carry Sox Over Orioles

Bartolo Colon reached an important milestone on his way to 300…and I don’t mean his weight. Bartolo Colon registered his 150th win (exactly half-way to 300) in a 6-3 triumph over the Orioles. Colon pitched well yet again, allowing one run in six innings with seven strikeouts. Colon was really helped by the Sox bats, […]

Dice-K Injured, Manny Hits No. 499 in Sox Loss

The Red Sox-Mariners game Tuesday night was a wild one with many storylines playing out. It’s rare that a random regular season game would have so many twists, but this one certainly did. The Mariners won 4-3 in walkoff fashion, but that’s not even half the story. Starter Daisuke Matsuzaka left the game with apparent […]

Sox Earn Doubleheader Sweep over Brewers

The Red Sox swept a day-night doubleheader at Fenway on Saturday against the Brewers behind strong starting pitching from Daisuke Matsuzaka in Game 1 and big offensive production from Mike Lowell in Game 2. Dice-K allowed two runs (zero earned) on seven hits and two walks with six strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings. The Sox […]

Red Sox Bot Notes

Schilling Beginning to Throw Boston Red Sox starter Curt Schilling played long toss before Thursday’s game against the Detroit Tigers, continuing his rehabilitation from a shoulder injury. Schilling also tested that shoulder by playing catch on flat ground Tuesday but wasn’t ready to begin throwing off a mound. “He did good. He looked good,” manager […]

Wang Masterful, Yanks dump Sox 4-1

Tonight the Yankees took the first of many match-ups between the two rivals in the 2008 season as Yankee ace Chien-Ming Wang pitched a two-hit shutout and the Bronx Bombers defeated the defending World Champs, 4-1. Wang allowed a fifth inning solo homer to J.D. Drew which tied the game at 1-1. Wang would retire […]

Spring Training Water Cooler Talk

Coco Crisp or Jacoby Ellsbury Terry Francona has said Coco Crisp is the incumbent, meaning Jacoby Ellsbury still needs to win the job. You’d think the interview for the spot would have been the World Series, Ellsbury was kind of great there. Apparently, Ellsbury is behind Coco. At least CF is a great place to […]

Timlin back for 2008

The Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox and Timlin have come to terms on a one year deal worth about three million. Mike is 42 this season, but proved he can still pitch at a major league level. He pitched 55.1 innings in ’07, and ended with a 3.42 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. […]

Mike Timlin Offered 1 Year Deal

According to Nick Cafardo at the Boston Globe, the Red Sox have offered Mike Timlin a 1 year deal. It might be a major league deal or a minor league deal with a major league invite. Thats what he reports but I doubt Timlin would come back at this late stage of his career for […]
