If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 6

We’re halfway through May, and baseball is full of stories. The Yankees and Indians are up. The Red Sox and Rockies are down. New injuries are creeping up while others are healing. It’s very difficult for any team to get any sort of a niche for themselves, so let’s look at what would happen if […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 5

May is well underway, and there’s plenty of movement going on. Both leagues have new powerhouses in control. Some teams are slipping while others struggle to maintain what they have so far. It’s been difficult for any team to have any sort of lasting stay against those around them, so let’s look at what would […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 4

April is almost over already, and there are plenty of teams that are shaking up the standings from what many expected. Boston, Kansas City and Pittsburgh have all turned things around quite nicely from last season. The Dodgers, Blue Jays and Angels, on the other hand, have completely failed to live up to the hype. […]

Video: Yankees Turn 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 Triple Play

While the Boston Red Sox had an unscheduled night off thanks to rain postponing Friday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, the New York Yankees did what the Red Sox couldn’t do the two previous nights: beat the Baltimore Orioles. It was the Yankees’ fourth straight win, improving their record to 5-4 to enter into […]

Ryan Dempster Solid, but Red Sox Offense Sputters Against Yankees

The Boston Red Sox entered Thursday night’s game with their first 2-0 start to the season since 1999, and the New York Yankees were on sweep-watch in the first series of the season. However, Andy Pettitte had other plans for the Red Sox batters. Pettitte appeared to come out with some nerves to start and […]

Red Sox on Pace for Perfect Season after 7-4 Win Over Yankees

Clay Buchholz pitched 7 strong innings and the Boston Red Sox took advantage of Hiroki Kuroda‘s early exit to beat the New York Yankees, 7-4. According to the Associated Press, the second straight win in the Bronx marks the first 2-0 start for the Red Sox since 1999. For all the doubters who wondered whether […]

Despite AL East Hype, Red Sox Good Bet for 2013 Postseason

This season, parity redefines itself in the American League East. Unlike years past, where the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees have clashed over the division title and sole AL Wild Card, the division presents five potentially great baseball teams competing for a maximum of three playoff spots. After an abysmal 2012 season, the […]

Red Sox Should Thank MLB Player’s Union for Nixing A-Rod Trade, PED Circus

On December 18, 2003, the trade that would have sent AL MVP Alex Rodriguez to the Boston Red Sox for Manny Ramirez went dead. The Texas Rangers and Boston Red Sox passed the deadline set by MLB Commissioner Bud Selig to complete the blockbuster, ending negotiations and the prospect of Rodriguez in a Red Sox uniform. A […]

The Changing Landscape of the American League East

Buckle your seat belts, ladies and gentlemen. This is not in the AL East we’re used to any more. After a turbulent regular season, marked by the Baltimore Orioles making the playoffs and the Boston Red Sox finishing in last place, the offseason that followed has been equally hectic. A flurry of big-name acquisitions by […]

Kevin Youkilis to the Yankees: Reasons and Reactions

Say it ain’t so, Youk!! Kevin Youkilis recently became the latest in a long line of Red Sox players to defect to the “dark side” and join the New York Yankees, signing a one-year deal worth a reported $12 million. It’s a deal that makes sense for both parties, as the Yankees will be without starting […]

Yankees Offering Kevin Youkilis a Deal is Fine, Red Sox Fans Should Rejoice

With Alex Rodriguez likely missing four to six months after hip surgery, which could sideline him until June, the New York Yankees need help at third base until he is fully healthy. One of the best choices out there is ex-Red Sox infielder Kevin Youkilis. Now, the Yankees, according to The New York Times, want […]

Nick Swisher to the Red Sox? Why It Should Happen

The Boston Red Sox have been in constant communication with the ex-New York Yankees first baseman/outfielder about contract negotiations, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe. Nick Swisher is one of the best options this offseason and the Red Sox need to fill the holes where he can fit in perfectly.

Is Jose Iglesias the Next Starting Shortstop for the Red Sox?

The Red Sox seem to change shortstops on a yearly basis. Every year it’s a new face. Every year they find a guy who actually ends up being pretty good (Orlando Cabrera, Mike Aviles, Alex Gonzales) and every year they ship him out like nothing happened. Jose Iglesias could be the end of this revolving […]

Red Sox Won’t Raise 2013 Ticket Prices, Avoid PR Disaster (For Once)

In their first positive public relations move in recent memory, the Boston Red Sox have decided NOT to raise ticket prices for the 2013 season. After all, it’s not like they could slip the media some “anonymous” story about ticket holders having a prescription pill problem to justify a price hike. And sadly, they had already […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 24

Just one week remains in the regular season, and there’s still plenty to play for. No AL team has even locked up a playoff spot so far, and only two of the NL divisions have been won. Both #1 seeds, essential for drawing a tired Wildcard team, are still very much up in the air. […]
