Red Sox Place Buchholz on DL After Losing Seven Pounds vs. Atlanta Braves

The Boston Red Sox have placed the embattled starter Clay Buchholz on the 15-day disabled list, two days after he lost SEVEN POUNDS pitching in the heat of Atlanta. Perhaps Buchholz felt he owed a pound of flesh in penance for every integer in his 2014 ERA (7.02). Okay, so manager John Farrell said it was his hyperextended left knee that landed […]

Video: Johnny Damon Interrupts Manny Ramirez’s First Pitch

If you’re a Red Sox fan… or if you were in 2004 when they won it all, you probably couldn’t help but smile during the pre-game ceremonies at Fenway Park. The Red Sox brought out most of the cast of characters from that World Series-winning team, including a recovering Curt Schilling (he has been battling […]

Jerry Remy to Return Wednesday after Jared Remy Pleads Guilty

The son of NESN broadcaster Jerry Remy, a monster named Jared, has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the death of his longtime girlfriend Jennifer Martel. In court Tuesday, Remy did some Grade A victim blaming: “I am here today not for a deal, but to take responsibility for what I have done. I would […]

Video: Red Sox, Rays Brawl As Sox Lose 10th Straight Game

The Red Sox had tied the game 3-3 in the top of the seventh inning, but after another meltdown in the inning’s bottom half, they found themselves down 8-3. Yunel Escobar was on second base with two outs, and crossed the line of unwritten rules by stealing third base with a five-run lead (Escobar was […]

Can There Be Hope Despite Red Sox 9-Game Slide?

There is no way to put it sugar-coat it; the Sox have been bad, terrible, atrocious, putrid, pick any negative word you would like and the Red Sox have embodied it. If the Toronto series wasn’t bad enough, the Red Sox extended their losing streak to nine games with a soul-crushing 15th inning loss Saturday night. It’s […]

Video: Red Sox Fans Desperately Scramble After Slow-Rolling Foul Ball

There is a spectrum of Red Sox fans, I think we can all admit. There are the Pink Hats and the Guy Listening to His Transistor Radio Behind Home Plate. There is the I Don’t Care If We’re Down 9-0, I’m Still Singing “Sweet Caroline” and the Cowers Behind Her Couch Because No 9-0 Lead […]

Video: Red Sox Fan Just Casually Catches Ball in Stands

If there’s a silver lining to the Red Sox loss Tuesday against the Blue Jays, it’s the cool fan that was relaxing in Fenway Park – the guy in the Whalers shirt eating a hot dog. Jays catcher Dioner Navarro hit a ground-rule double, and the fan just let the ball come to him, making […]

Red Sox Sign Stephen Drew

The Red Sox have brought back Stephen Drew on a one-year, 14 million dollar deal (prorated), and will be manning shortstop for Boston pending a physical. This deal ends a cat and mouse game that played throughout the offseason and the beginning of the 2014 season.

Video: Brock Holt Shows Off Reflexes with Web Gem Off Pierzynski’s Glove

I stand by what I said in yesterday’s post that Brock Holt is not the answer at third base (who is?) for the Boston Red Sox. That said, in case you missed it, Holt did make a pretty sweet catch in foul territory against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday Night Baseball, with an unintentional assist from catcher AJ […]

Red Sox Place Middlebrooks on DL, Start Looking to Improve Left Side of Infield

On Saturday, the Red Sox placed third baseman Will Middlebrooks on the 15-day disabled for the second time this season, this time with a fractured right index finger. The injury may be a blessing in disguise, as he’s hitting just .197/.305/.324 with all of two home runs in 21 games. To replace him on the 25-man roster, […]

Farrell Makes Changes, Slowly But Surely Hope Returns

The Red Sox are slowly working their way up the American League East ladder one game at a time after a few changes to the pitching rotation and the lineup. It seemed John Farrell had lost his edge, and his eye for placing talent in the right place at the time. Fans waited, hoped, and […]

Lester Strikes Out 15 as Red Sox Beat A’s 6-3

Lester’s Impressive Start In case you missed it, Jon Lester threw an absolute gem for the Red Sox on Saturday. Lester earned his 3rd win of the season (3-4), tallying 15 strikeouts while only allowing 1 hit and 2 walks over 8 innings against the Oakland Athletics. There hasn’t been a Red Sox pitcher to […]

Rays Complain About Doubleheader, then Brag After Sweeping Red Sox

Well, that backfired. After rain postponed Wednesday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Boston Red Sox invoked an obscure rule that gives them (and the Chicago Cubs) the authority to schedule doubleheaders without their opponent’s consent. The Rays wanted to wait until their next visit to Fenway Park to make up the rain […]

Where is Jerry Remy Tonight? (April 29, 2014)

Did you tune into the Red Sox game tonight and wonder where Jerry Remy was? You weren’t alone, and NESN announced that Remy has a stomach flu.

Red Sox, Doubront Collapse in 14-5 Loss to Yankees

During the finale of a three-game series versus the New York Yankees on Thursday night, the Red Sox failed to add onto the momentum from Wednesday’s win. The Yankees beat the Red Sox 14-5, thanks to a strong six-inning start by  C.C. Sabathia and a defensive meltdown for the Red Sox.
