Red Sox DFA Grady Sizemore, Call Up Garin Cecchini

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 […]

Brock Holt: Baseball Player or Superhero?

“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, […]

Video: Jackie Bradley Jr. Makes Catch Against Monster, Doubles Runner Off First

Jackie Bradley Jr. is batting .203 with a .290 on base percentage for the 2014 season. His slugging percentage is a paltry .292, and in case you’re wondering, no, it’s not good when your OBP and your SLG are equivalent (unless your name is Barry Bonds, maybe). In the past seven days, Bradley has (somehow) […]

Where Are They Now? Catching Up With Former Red Sox

Since the Boston Red Sox have been playing like garbage yet again, let’s attempt to ignore that and alphabetically catch up with some old steadies and see what they’re doing nowadays…. Alfredo Aceves – Remember Alfredo Aceves? Yes, this Alfredo Aceves. It appears taking his talents back to the New York Yankees didn’t work out […]

Four Red Sox Ejected, But Pierzynski Delivers Walk-Off Win Over Rays

After the brawl between the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays last Sunday at Tropicana Field, some carryover shenanigans between the AL East rivals would have gotten lower odds than California Chrome to win the Belmont Stakes. Still, one would think two professional baseball teams could avoid having tempers escalate as quickly as an […]

Red Sox Send Lavarnway to DL, Call Up Alex Hassan as 1B Replacement

First baseman and Massachusetts native Alex Hassan will join the Boston Red Sox after Ryan Lavarnway was placed on the disabled list with a sore left wrist. Hassan is one of the only viable options to fulfill first base duties with Mike Napoli also on the DL. Lavarnway had just arrived in Boston for the […]

Bats Come Alive During Red Sox Turnaround

Twenty-six runs scored over a ten game span is bad, that is an average of 2.6 runs per game. A barren wasteland of offensive production. No wonder the Sox lost ten games in a row. In the last three games the Sox have averaged six runs per game. Not surprisingly, with that level of offensive firepower, […]

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.
