While player performance on the field remained the same, The Red Sox 2015 season came to a close Sunday afternoon with many changes off the field including the departure of NESN announcer Don Orsillo, reinstatement of manager John Farell, and hire of Torey Lovullo to bench coach position.
Greenville Drive third baseman, Yoan Moncada, enjoyed an electric second half to his 2015 season landing him the number one spot in Baseball America’s top prospects in the South Atlantic league. The League has single-A affiliates from the the New York Yankees, Kansas City Royals, and Baltimore Orioles major league franchises.
When you spend $88 million on a player he better be worth every red cent. Hanley Ramirez is not worth the high-priced contract he signed with the Red Sox. Hanley Ramirez reminds me of a movie from the 1980s starring a young Tom Hanks, called The Money Pit. A newlywed couple buys what they think […]
In a stunning move, NESN has fired longtime Red Sox play by play announcer Don Orsillo. Orsillo will stay on for the remainder of the season and will be replaced in 2016 by Dave O’Brien. Orsillo, who has been with NESN since 2001, has become a fixture in New England and has been there to […]
The Boston Red Sox named Dave Dombrowski President of Baseball Operations, effective immediately, on Tuesday evening. In reaction to the hire of Dombrowski, Ben Cherrington decided to step down as General Manager once Dombrowski’s transitional period is complete.
John Farrell announced during his Friday night pre-game press conference that he has stage one lymphoma. The lymphoma was detected after having surgery in Detroit for a hernia on Monday. A mass was removed at the time of the surgery. Farrell will step down as manager of the Red Sox while he undergoes a nine-week course […]
Right before Friday night’s game, the Red Sox struck a deal to trade Mike Napoli and cash to the Texas Rangers for cash or a player-to-be-named-later. The Rangers will pay about $1.5 million of the remaining money owed to Napoli.
Henry Owens will make his major league debut on Tuesday against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Owens was called up after Rick Porcello was placed on the 15-day disabled list with sore triceps muscles. The Red Sox organization has been slowly promoting Owens since 2013 when he went from single A Greenville Drive […]
The Boston Red Sox stink. The Chicago White Sox also stink. Now, that shouldn’t be breaking news to anyone in Beantown or the Windy City. Both teams have wildly underachieved after making big splashes this past offseason to bring in high priced free agents. The Red Sox, of course, brought in Hanley Ramirez and Pablo […]
After seeking a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews, Clay Buchholz’s original diagnosis of a flexor strain in the right elbow was confirmed. During the visit, it was recommended that the right-hander also get a Platelet-Rich Plasma injection. This injection contains a higher proportion of platelets than normal blood and it’s thought to facilitate reduction of […]
Another Red Sox season and another year with Clay Buchholz heading to the disabled list. This is a familiar story for Sox fans and its happening again. Boston had been making noise in the AL East behind some of Buchholz best starts of the season. In the month of June he was 4-0 and in […]
The surging Red Sox welcome to town the AL East leading New York Yankees this weekend for a 3-game set at Fenway. The Sox are 8-2 in their last ten games while the Yankees have been 5-5 in that same span. Boston is now just 5.5 games back of the division lead but still with […]
I am no witch, but I am starting to believe that the Red Sox did not reverse the curse in 2004. Or, if they did, the Red Sox somehow put a new curse in place? They re-cursed themselves. Could it have been the 2012 blockbuster trade with the Los Angeles Dodger’s Trade that re-cursed us? […]
Dear Beloved Boston Sports Fans, In case you haven’t noticed, the Boston sports teams are all in a state of disarray. The Red Sox are quickly becoming the laughing stock of Major League Baseball with one of the highest payrolls in the league and a collection of underperforming players. The only bright spot on the […]
With a little over a month and a half before the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline, there are sure to be an increased amount of chatter between the Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia Phillies concerning their ace pitcher, Cole Hamels. One would suspect that the price tag for Hamels has increased due to his recent […]
