Ichiro Homers Twice Off Beckett, Red Sox Fall to Yankees

The New York Yankees might be heavily reliant on a long ball driven offense, but when they receive starting pitching like they did on Sunday night from Hiroki Kuroda against the Red Sox, the combination goes a long way towards success. The Red Sox were unable to figure out Kuroda, with two solo shots from […]

Bronx Bombers Blast 5 HR, Red Sox Fall in New York

Franklin Morales is having an exceptional season for the Boston Red Sox, becoming a starter out of nowhere. Unfortunately the New York Yankees remain kryptonite against the former reliever, blasting solo home runs off of Morales on Friday night in a 6-4 Red Sox loss. This year Morales has allowed eight home runs to the […]

The New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox Sunday night by a score of 7-3 to take three out of four games of the last series before the All-Star break. The loss drops the Red Sox back to the Mediocrity Line with a record of 43-43. In proper Red Sox-Yankees fashion, the first inning […]

Crawford Crushes Red Sox; Boston Now 6 1/2 Back in Both Races

It’s been almost five years since any Boston Red Sox catcher threw out Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Carl Crawford. He has stolen 35 consecutive bases. Sunday night, when the Red Sox and Rays played the rubber match of their three-game series at Tropicana Field, he stole no bases. Instead, he did his damage with his […]

Red Sox Winter Meetings Update: Day 1

It has been a wild day of rumors at Day 1 of the Winter Meetings, and the Sox are involved in a bunch of them. They signed one player already: 34-year-old relief pitcher Scott Atchison, who spent the last two years pitching in Japan. ESPN.com’s Gordon Edes reported that Atchison will be paid $420K in […]

Red Sox Hot Stove: Back Burner

With all the attention given to Alex Gonzalez heading to Toronto, Marco Scutaro confessing his desire to be a Red Sox, and the Blue Jays dangling Roy Halladay (who may have become the focus of the next Boston vs. New York bidding war), there are a few smaller moves the Red Sox will be focusing […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 14 (7-6 – 7-12)

I’d like to talk about Joe Mauer for a moment. With 15 HR, Mauer is currently tied for the 24th most HR in the American League. He hit 11 of his 15 home runs in the month of May, which is the only reason his home run total looks decent. With 15 on the season, […]
