Red Sox Make Jon Lester An Offer

The Boston Red Sox have reportedly made Jon Lester an offer according to an inside source, reports ESPN’s Gordon Edes. The source stated that Lester plans on taking his time to make a decision about the undisclosed offer made by Ben Cherington and other Red Sox management. Before the 2014 season began, the Red Sox […]

Source: Red Sox Closing in on Deal with Pablo Sandoval

According to a source close with the team, the Red Sox are close to signing free agent 3B Pablo Sandoval to a 5 year, $100 million dollar contract with an option for a 6th year. This is not done yet, but in the words of the source, “90% he comes here.” This is an interesting […]

Red Sox “All-in” on Pablo Sandoval

The Boston Red Sox are “all in”  and “making a big push” to bring free agent Pablo Sandoval to Boston according ESPN reporter Gordon Edes. Sandoval and his agent have discussed 5-year, $80 to $90 million contracts with both the San Francisco Giants and the Red Sox, reports Jerry Crasnick of ESPN via Twitter. Sandoval, […]

Why the Red Sox DON’T Want Pablo Sandoval

Many Red Sox fans have been dreaming of free agent third basemen, Pablo Sandoval since August. Those dreams only intensified after he put together an extraordinary post-season. There have also been rumors circulating that the Red Sox are “all in” on the powerful switch hitter.  And various reports have indicated that Sandoval is in Boston to meet with Red Sox […]

Red Sox Begin Talks with World Series MVP Pablo Sandoval

The free agent market opened on Tuesday and the Boston Red Sox are already shopping. The team reportedly reached out to San Francisco third baseman and World Series MVP Pablo Sandoval’s agent yesterday to begin talks. Sandoval seems like a good fit for the Red Sox. He is a strong offensive force in the mold of […]

Where Are They Now? How Former Red Sox Have Fared in the 2014 MLB Postseason

I thought, perhaps naively, that the disgrace and disgust of the 2014 Boston Red Sox season would end with Game 162. I was wrong. The reminders of the Red Sox season that (I wish) never was have been everywhere throughout the 2014 MLB postseason. The Baltimore Orioles and Kansas City Royals, two non-playoff teams last year, both […]

Red Sox Reportedly Make Deal with Chili Davis for Hitting Coach

Sunday the Red Sox began the process of turning the page to 2015 when they reportedly reached an agreement with hitting coach Chili Davis. Davis had been with the Oakland Athletics for the last three seasons.

As Jeter Leaves, Let’s Reminisce on Nomar: What Could Have Been

Regardless of your stance on the appropriateness of Jeter’s farewell tour, you’d have to admit that watching the Red Sox organization showering Jeter with adoration last weekend was painful.  Not for the fact that is was obligatory and contrived or even the over-to-top theatrics, but that it reminds us of a short stop that we used to […]

Why Watch the Red Sox? This is the End!

So maybe this occasion doesn’t call for a parade down the Charles, but it certainly is a cause for celebration. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been searching for reasons to keep watching the Red Sox, if only to feel like a better fan and to justify to myself (and my girlfriend) why I […]

Why Watch the Red Sox? Mooooookieeeee and the Rooooookieeeeees (and Some Guy Named Jeter)

And then there were two. This afternoon, the Boston Red Sox play their second to last game of the atrocity that is the 2014 season, though you’d be excused for confusing them with the Pawtucket Red Sox. Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, Mike Napoli, and Shane Victorino are all out for the season, leaving a collection […]

Why Watch the Red Sox? For the Magic Number 1

Thank the baseball gods that there are now less than four games left in this abomination of a Red Sox season. All are against teams officially eliminated from the MLB postseason – the rubber game against the Tampa Bay Rays, then three against Derek Jeter and the New York Yankees – meaning the Red Sox can’t even play […]

Mike Napoli (Finally) Shaves, Signalling the End of a Red Sox Era

It was, as Agent Smith likes to say, inevitable. Mike Napoli, the lone bastion of the bearded 2013 World Series Champion Red Sox, ended his hairy-faced holdout and finally shaved. Take a look, courtesy of NESN and the official Red Sox Twitter feed: Yes, that is still Mike Napoli… http://t.co/FHFh73LSD6pic.twitter.com/JNSqMX71si — Boston Red Sox (@RedSox) […]

Why Watch the Red Sox? The Closer Carousel and the Return (?) of the Koji

157 down, 5 to go. That’s all that’s left on this misery of a Red Sox season, thankfully. But the Rajon Rondo trade rumors are nothing more than just that — rumors — and the Patriots don’t play every day (perhaps fortunately, considering Week 3′s ugly win), so I’m trying to justify reasons to keep […]

Brock Holt: Utility Man or Key Future Starter?

Back in 2012, the Red Sox sent a package of prospects over to the Pittsburgh Pirates for projected closer of the 2013 season, Joel Hanrahan. Brock Holt was a mere throw-in, and Joel Hanrahan revealed himself as a bust, which cleared a path for Koji Uehara to dominate as the Red Sox closer.  Holt played 23 games […]

Why Watch the Red Sox? David Ortiz Poised to Top the Record Books

10 games and counting. That is all that is left in this abomination of a season for the Boston Red Sox. This is my #100happydays submission — that 2014 is kindly petering out and I can start looking forward to next season. But unfortunately, there are still games left and I can’t distract myself with […]
