Red Sox Bats Overcome Buchholz’s Struggles in Win Over Orioles

The Red Sox are no longer in the basement of the American League East. Well, at least they’re not in the basement alone. The 8-6 win over the first place Baltimore Orioles combined with the New York Yankees loss tied the rivals with even 21-21 records for fourth place in the division. The win was […]

Aaron Cook Injured, Battered by Orioles in Red Sox Loss

Aaron Cook was hoping for a better first start in Boston. A much anticipated debut for the Red Sox on Saturday was shattered early, as a second inning collision with Chris Davis left a large gash in his leg. He amazingly stayed in the game, but probably would have been better off hitting the showers, […]

Ortiz Drives in 4 as Red Sox Dominate Orioles

It was something David Ortiz had experienced over 300 times before the season even began. It was something Josh Reddick had experienced once. Yet Wednesday night at Fenway, the Red Sox superstar and the Red Sox call-up experienced the same thing: the joy of the home run. Ortiz and Reddick each homered to right, and […]

Scutaro Error Proves Costly as Red Sox Fall to Orioles

Marco Scutaro’s throw sailed into right field. Boston’s playoff hopes may have sailed away with it. Scutaro’s two-base error on a throw to second base in the third inning allowed the winning run to come home in the Baltimore Orioles’ 5-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Tuesday night at Camden Yards, the Orioles struck […]

Drew, Nava Carry Red Sox Past Orioles 3-2

With the AL East lead nearly a three-way tie among the Red Sox, Yankees and Rays, the Sox need to pick up every win they can, especially against teams like the struggling Orioles. Despite 10 players on the DL, the Red Sox keep finding ways to win. Good luck charm Daniel Nava was at it […]

TGIF: Baseball’s Second Half Studs

The season is half over and you have some decisions to make. If you are low on the totem pole and need to make a run at the playoffs, then clearly the team you have now needs some adjusting. Searching free agency and looking for potential trades can be a stressful endeavor. The important thing to […]

Sox Overcome 7-Run Deficit to Beat O’s

Brad Penny dug the Red Sox in a very deep hole after allowing seven runs in the second inning, including a grandslam to deep center field by Nick Markakis. But, two things were working in the Sox favor Friday night: they were in Fenway Park…and they were facing the Baltimore Orioles. The Sox came roaring […]

The First Week of Baseball

While nothing happened in the first week of baseball that was quite at the level of excitement of Boston University’s win of the NCAA hockey championship, there was some exciting action, but also a reminder of how short life can be. Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart made just his fourth major league start and later that night was killed […]

Players I Targeted: Nick Markakis

The season is underway, baseball is here! And that means most fantasy drafts are over. But for those mid-season leagues or leagues just drafting a little late, Pete and I will highlight some guys we were trying to get in every draft. If you know me, this won’t come as a surprise. The intensity of […]

AL East Fantasy Preview: Baltimore Orioles

Baltimore has taken a bold step in the direction of the franchise and have decided to rebuild their team. Baltimore traded two of its biggest names in SS Miguel Tejada and ace pitcher Erik Bedard.

Buchholz Throws a No-No!

How does a rookie get starting job on the Red Sox? You become the first rookie pitcher in Red Sox history to throw a no hitter. “There’s no going back to Triple-A,” Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. Buchholz wasn’t even suppose to start today. Wakefield twinged his back Friday so Tavarez had to move […]

Trio of O’s Make Owners Happy

Although the Baltimore Orioles are 8 games under .500 and are not a fantasy force as a team, the offense does boast a trio of players that should be universally owned in all leagues. These 3 men had a solid three game series against the Red Sox and if they were in your lineup over […]
