Strongest American League Threats to Boston’s Throne

The free agent market has been put on ice this winter, as the Major League Baseball offseason has been held up by the holidays and the grand pursuit of Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.

Lackey, Napoli Power Red Sox to 1-0 Victory Over Tigers in ALCS

John Lackey matched Justin Verlander pitch for pitch, and the Boston Red Sox managed to break through for a run on a 3-2 pitch from Verlander to Mike Napoli. Verlander’s 100th pitch went deep to left-center and the only run of the game gave the Red Sox a 1-0 win over the Detroit Tigers on […]

Tigers Hit 3 Home Runs to Avoid Sweep by Red Sox

The Red Sox have been pretty good as of late, and the Yankees have been pretty bad as of late, so if you’re one of the few remaining optimistic Red Sox fans, Wednesday could mean a lot. Instead, the Yankees woke up, beating down the Orioles 12-3…and the Red Sox were taken to town by […]

Fielder Edges Bautista in Home Run Derby

Prince Fielder won his second Home Run Derby title on Monday night in Kansas City, defeating Jose Bautista in the final round by a score of 12-7. The two were added to the team by American League captain Robinson Cano, who was booed by the Kansas City crowd and went without a single long ball. […]

Tigers Maul Red Sox Pitching, Avoid Sweep

With two inherited runners on and two outs in the top of the eighth, Matt Albers struck out left fielder Don Kelly looking to end the threat. That was basically the only good thing the Boston Red Sox did on the mound all night. The Detroit Tigers clubbed 14 hits off Josh Beckett and two […]

2012 MLB Preview: Yankees Top American League Power Rankings

For the Boston Red Sox, the 2011 season was an homage to all of the disappointing Red Sox teams of the past. The Sox had a potent offense, mediocre pitching staff and even a historic collapse to cap it all off. The baseball season is an epic journey and usually teams with the most talent, […]

Sox Create Late Drama in Opening Day Loss

The Red Sox couldn’t touch Justin Verlander all day. The American League MVP and Cy Young award winner started his 2012 season with a dominate performance, silencing the Sox bats over eight strong innings. He left the game with Detroit leading 2-0, and star closer Jose Valverde coming into the game. Valverde had a tremendous […]

Ryan Braun Proven Innocent, Suspension Lifted

Ryan Braun can sleep much easier these days. The Brewers outfielder successfully won his appeal of the 50-game suspension he received for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. In December it was initially reported that the National League MVP had failed an October test due to high levels of testosterone. Immediately a negative outburst of reaction […]

New Tigers 1B Prince Fielder’s Impact on the American League

Prince Fielder finally found his suitor. The National League slugger waited and waited all offseason to find the right fit until the Detroit Tigers made a $214 million, nine-year offer that he just couldn’t refuse. Hard to blame him considering he’ll now be a part of the best 3-4 combination in all of baseball alongside […]

Steroid Use Should Cost Ryan Braun MVP

When you get caught cheating, you’re supposed to be punished. Copy your friend’s homework? Zero on the assignment. Run a red light to save a couple minutes? Ticket. Carry on an elicit affair? Divorce, and probably half your stuff. Milwaukee Brewer Ryan Braun got caught cheating: he failed a drug test. While a 50-game suspension […]

Ryan Braun Should Keep MVP Despite Positive Steroids Test

Last Saturday night, the news broke that National League MVP Ryan Braun failed a performance-enhancing drug test in October. This dramatic truth revealed is devastating for MLB, which seemed to be beginning truly moving past the “Steroids Era” that began in the early 90′s. Braun is an established superstar of the game, arguably the very […]

Fielder HRs, NL Pitchers Shutdown AL to Win All-Star Game; Beckett Hurt

Adrian Gonzalez may have out-homered Milwaukee’s Prince Fielder at the Home Run Derby, but Fielder’s home run mattered most Tuesday night at the 82nd All-Star Game at Chase Stadium in Phoenix. Fielder’s three-run home run off Texas’ C.J. Wilson in the fourth inning drove in the winning runs, and National League pitchers limited American League […]

Robinson Cano Beats Adrian Gonzalez in AL-Dominated Home Run Derby

I won’t say that David Ortiz chose his American League teammates for Monday’s 2011 State Farm Home Run Derby at Chase Stadium in Phoenix better than Milwaukee Brewer Prince Fielder chose his from the National League. But if players were possible Holy Grails, Fielder would have long since turned to dust, whereas Ortiz would be chilling […]
