The Boston Red Sox have traded John Lackey to the St. Louis Cardinals in return for first baseman-outfielder Allen Craig and right-handed pitcher Joe Kelly. The Cardinals will also receive minor league pitcher Corey Littrell and cash considerations. Craig has been with the Cardinals since the beginning of his career in 2006, and plays both first base and […]
The Red Sox dealt a starting pitcher on Wednesday — no, not that one. Boston traded lefty Felix Doubront to the Chicago Cubs for a player to be named later. That player will be sent to the Red Sox after the Rule 5 Draft and is expected to be a low-level prospect. Doubront has been […]
The Red Sox have scratched lefty Jon Lester from his scheduled start on Wednesday in lieu of all of the trade rumors swirling around him and the team. Brandon Workman will be called up from Triple-A start in Lester’s place.
Chris Capuano thought he saw his last Major League baseball diamond in 2014, but he was wrong. The New York Yankees announced Thursday afternoon that they will be acquiring the left-hander from the AAA minor league Rockies affiliate, the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, in exchange for cash.
The Red Sox won 14-1 Monday night, which by itself is worthy of a CNN breaking news alert. David Ortiz launched two home runs, passing Yaz on the all-time home run list… and even Stephen Drew hit a home run. But, perhaps nothing was more amazing than Brock Holt’s amazing catch while playing in a […]
A 26-year-old man is suing Major League Baseball, the New York Yankees, and ESPN New York for character defamation after cameras caught him slumped over, sleeping on April 13th 2014, at Yankee Stadium as the Bronx Bombers faced off against the Boston Red Sox. Andrew Rector is seeking $10 million in the suit he filed […]
With the Red Sox at 38-47 (as of this writing) and in fourth place in the American League East, the team clearly boasts only a couple possible candidates for this year’s All-Star Game. Fortunately for at least one lucky Red Sox player, MLB requires that each roster has at least one player from each team. […]
Last week, CBS Sports reported that a contract extension for Red Sox ace Jon Lester would not come during the season, making the lefthander a free agent for the first time in his career after the season. According to WEEI’s Rob Bradford, Lester would consider negotiating with the team during the season, as long as […]
For those of you Boston fans depressed by the fact that the Red Sox are on the verge of being swept by the lowly Chicago Cubs — led by former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein, no less — here is the moment of levity that you’ve been looking for. Jerry Remy lost one of his teeth […]
After making two rehab starts in Pawtucket, Clay Buchholz has been activated from the 15-day disabled list to make his first start in almost a month against the Seattle Mariners Wednesday night. He’ll be looking to salvage the finale after the Red Sox dropped the first two games of the series by scores of 12-3 […]
Attempting to make a comeback after injuries forced a two-year hiatus from professional baseball, Grady Sizemore was the feel-good story of spring training for the Boston Red Sox. Three months later, that good will is long gone. The Red Sox designated Sizemore for assignment on Tuesday after the former All-Star managed to hit just .216/.288/.324 in 52 games, striking out […]
The Red Sox completed a three-game sweep of the Minnesota Twins Wednesday despite only scoring FIVE runs in the series. Here are two of them, courtesy of David Ortiz (first) and then… Mike Napoli: Your browser does not support iframes.
Is there anything Brock Holt can’t do? Seriously, this is starting to border on the ridiculous. It’s crazy enough that he leads the Boston Red Sox with a .338 batting average after notching another multi-hit game (2-for-4) and scoring both runs in Tuesday night’s 2-1 win over the Minnesota Twins. But now he’s making highlight […]
On Tuesday afternoon, the Boston Red Sox designated outfielder Grady Sizemore for assignment, and recalled infielder Garin Cecchini who made his major league debut earlier this season. The move may mark the end of Sizemore’s major league career, as the 31-year old attempted to revitalize his once great career with the Red Sox after years of being […]
“Who is this Brock Holt guy,” I, and many other Red Sox fans asked ourselves back in mid-May. He sounds like a superhero. The name ‘Brock Holt’ has a lot of pizzazz. Like Peter Parker, Clark Kent, or Bruce Wayne. I will admit that I wrongfully dismissed him, “Ehh, he’s probably just some fill-in prospect.” May 17, […]
