Adjustments. Adjusting. Adjust. This was the overused word uttered by Red Sox owner, John Henry, during Tuesday’s press conference. Prognosis: Delusional Is he watching the same team that the rest of us are? He could not have been more vague when it came down to what management is trying to do to combat what seems […]
After a dismal few weeks on the road the Red Sox returned to Fenway and picked up a much needed win behind a dominant eight-inning performance from Clay Buchholz, who allowed just three hits, eight Ks, and most importantly, no earned runs. Buchholz, now with a 3.82 ERA, was finally given some run support in the seventh inning. […]
This is a breaking news update. Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz now has an ERA under 4.00.
It’s no secret that the cellar dweller Boston Red Sox have finished in last place in the American League East twice out of the previous three years (with a out-of-the-blue World Series win sandwiched in between). However, what should be eye-opening to Red Sox fans is how realistic it is to start to consider the […]
Despite getting swept in three games by the Minnesota Twins, the Boston Red Sox have at least something to look forward to on their plane ride from Minneapolis to Arlington, Texas: the pitching debut of Eduardo Rodriguez. Manager John Farrell announced before Wednesday’s 6-4 loss that Rodriguez will be called up to get his first […]
The Red Sox finally called up Rusney Castillo on Friday night, and in his first game, he dropped a fly ball in a play that Jerry Remy even called “bad.” It really was embarrassing. Castillo later singled to redeem himself a bit. Check out the drop here (mixed in with a recap of the Angels […]
Allen Craig was damaged goods when the Red Sox received him from the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for John Lackey during the 2014 season. Last season he had a nagging foot injury that he never really recovered from forcing him to underperform, and more recently be sent to AAA Pawtucket Red Sox. He is […]
Wondering where Jerry Remy is? So were we… until Rem-Dawg finally Tweeted Monday that he’ll be back on Tuesday: Be back tomorrow. Looking forward to being back with don and the sox — Jerry Remy (RemDawg) (@Jerry_Remy) May 18, 2015 Remy has been out since the beginning of May, only saying that he wasn’t “feeling […]
The Red Sox fired pitching coach Juan Nieves after over three seasons with the team. The current five-man starting has one of the highest ERA’s in the American League at 5.54. The move comes after repeated poor performances by Clay Buchholz, Rick Porcello, Justin Masterson, Wade Miley and Joe Kelly throughout the month of April. Porcello […]
The Red Sox have claimed infielder Luis Jimenez off waives after the Brewers designated him for assignment on Saturday. To make room on the 40-man roster, the Red Sox moved catcher Ryan Hanigan to the 60-day disabled list.
Red Sox catcher Ryan Hanigan has had surgery to repair a fractured finger on Saturday and is expected to miss at least two months. “He had surgery today,” manager John Farrell said. “There were some pins inserted. It’s going to be a lengthy recovery time. I wouldn’t anticipate him back before the All-Star break.” The Red […]
Yes, you read that headline right. The Red Sox are interested in MORE hitting — though this hitter wouldn’t be available until 2016. Either way, the Red Sox have shown interest in Korean slugger Byung-Ho Park, who has hit .310/.434/.645 the last two seasons, including 37 home runs in 2013 and 52 home runs last […]
The Red Sox called up outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. on Tuesday as Mike Napoli deals with an illness. Bradley, a gifted outfielder defensively, had one of the worst offensive seasons in Red Sox history last year, hitting .198 with 1 home run, 30 RBIs and a putrid .531 OPS.
I’ve done my absolute best to be optimistic about this pitching staff. Of course we all know how unproven the entire rotation was coming into this season, but it seemed like the five of them would be able to put it together. Each pitcher has had success in the past and the thought was they […]
After the most brutal winter in the history of Boston, the start of a new season of Red Sox baseball is just what we needed. The temperature is finally rising and there is legitimate buzz surrounding this team. Thanks to the additions of high-profile free agents Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez, the young players like […]
