Orale Papi! David Ortiz Wins In The 9th (This Time)

When a grand slam isn’t enough, try it again. It may not have been a homer, but David “Big Papi” Ortiz hit a walk-off double, driving in his seventh RBI in the 9th inning in two nights. It didn’t start out so well, and didn’t look good until the end; Miguel Cabrera thrust a spear […]

Red Sox Trade Ramon Ramirez to the Giants

The Red Sox have traded a Ramirez for the second time in the last three years at the trade deadline. This time, there’s not as many fireworks to go with it. According to WEEI’s Rob Bradford, the Red Sox have traded reliever Ramon Ramirez to the Giants, but it’s not known what the received in […]

Win Eludes Wakefield Again, Sox Fall 5-4

In perhaps the final start of his long major league career (more on that in a second), Tim Wakefield had a very…well…Wakefield-like outing. Of his 6 innings pitched, five were outstanding, and one was a disaster. Add it up, and he allowed four runs (three earned) on three hits and two walks with five K’s. […]

Molina Hits for Cycle As Soaked Sox Fall Short Again

Blame it on the bullpen. Or blame the injuries. Or even blame the rain delay. Wherever you point the finger after tonight’s 8-4loss to the Rangers, make sure it ultimately lands on Bengie Molina.  He is killing the Sox. Coming off a 7-2 thumping at the hands of the Rangers Thursday night, the Red Sox […]

Red Sox 2010 Second Half Preview

With the 2010 Midsummer Classic in the books, after Joe Girardi screwed the American League out of homefield advantage in the World Series, it’s time to look ahead. The unofficial second half of the season will get underway for your Boston Red Sox Thursday night at Fenway Park, with the opener of a four-game series […]

Red Sox Blow Lead And Game In The Trop

Boston almost had it, but in the end handed the Rays a 6-5 victory. Marco Scutaro started off the game with a bunt single, and despite a walk and passed ball, nothing came of it. Then the Rays started like you’d expect, with a walk and (surprise) stolen base from Ben Zobrist, who was doubled […]

Philly Phlunks in Boston Yet Again

One night after a 12-2 trouncing of the Philadelphia Phillies at Fenway Park, Boston defeated Philadelphia one more time, by the incredibly close score of 10-2. Big news was made before the game began when Daisuke Matsuzaka, freshly recovered from a food-poisoning-induced vomiting Wednesday, was scratched from his starts just moments before the game began. […]

Red Sox Blow Two Leads, Let Cleveland Walk Off

The Red Sox lost the game twice in Cleveland on Thursday night.  After hitting through the order and going up 4-0 in the first inning, it looked like the Red Sox were going to cruise through an easy win over a lowly Indians team.  Jon Lester made it look like more of a sure thing […]

The Doc is Out; the Sox Are in

In a contest that could reasonably be assumed to be lopsided, it was, but is was the other team doing the damage, as Tim Wakefield and the Red Sox took down Roy Halladay and the Phillies 8-3. It didn’t take long for Boston to draw first blood, when Kevin Youkilis led off the 2nd inning […]

Red Sox Pushed To Extra Innings After Blowing Lead, Lose in 12 to Tigers

At the very least we can say that they are sticking to the theme of the weekend. After the Boston Bruins collapsed to complete one of the biggest choke-jobs in sports history on Friday, the Boston Red Sox entered Saturday night’s game hot off a solid 7-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers where they saw […]

Red Sox 2010 Roster Preview: Bullpen

Once a weakness that led to the heartbreaking loss to the Yankees in the 2003 ALCS, the Red Sox bullpen has been the gold standard for the last few seasons, being referred to as “one of the best in baseball” at times by many. Anchored by Jonathan Papelbon, the relief pitching for the Red Sox […]

Red Sox 2009 Bullpen Review

The clean-up crew was good enough this year to merit an A- in my report card. The depth was lacking last season, but this season’s options made all the difference on what was one of the finest pens in the game. Jonathan Papelbon was lights out in the regular season (ignore the playoffs for the purposes of […]

Sox Dice-KO Orioles

Daisuke Matsuzaka did not exactly dominate the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday afternoon at Camden Yards, but he pitched more than well enough to notch his third win of the season. Staked to a three-run lead in the first, Dice K left after 5 1/3 innings with the Sox ahead 8-2. Reliever Ramon Ramirez allowed an […]

Martinez Pinch Hit Lifts Sox Over O’s

The Red Sox got out to an early lead in the first inning, when Jason Bay had a two-out single to left, which scored Jacoby Ellbsury and Kevin Youkilis. The Orioles answered back with a run of their own in the second when Cesar Izturis grounded into a double play. Boston added a run in the […]

Ortiz and Sox Walk-Off Win 3-2

Although Tim Wakefield received a no-decision, he put in seven solid innings of work for the Red Sox. Paul Konerko got Chicago on the scoreboard in the top of the first with a triple to center which drove in Gordon Beckham. David Ortiz tied the game up in the second with his first of two […]
