Will the Real Clay Buchholz Please Stand Up?

One inning.That’s all it took for the New York Yankees to pile on seven runs, for the Boston Red Sox to throw away a potential sweep, and Clay Buchholz to undo the narrative of an overachieving and underestimated Red Sox starting rotation after one turn through.¬†This came one turn after shutting down the Philadelphia Phillies […]

Red Sox Rename Home Opener “Mookie Betts Coming Out Party”

The ceremony took place after the first inning. It didn’t have quite the same formality or pomp and circumstance as the preface ceremony. There were no Lombardi trophies on display. Tom Brady had already left after throwing out the first pitch (or trying to). But by the bottom of the first inning, before the second […]

Red Sox Weekly Round Up: Joe Kelly and Clay Buchholz Shine Early

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 […]

Red Sox Sign Rick Porcello to 4-Year, $82.5 Million Contract

Rick Porcello hasn’t thrown a pitch for the Red Sox, but the team has made him a very rich man. The Red Sox, fresh off a big 8-0 win on Opening Day, have signed the 26-year-old free-agent-to-be Porcello to a four-year deal that covers the 2016-2019 seasons.

Red Sox Kick Off 2015 Season with Buchholz as “Ace”

Summer is coming. The 2015 Major League Baseball season kicked off Sunday night, and the Boston Red Sox will follow Monday afternoon¬†with their season opener against the Philadelphia Phillies. As exciting as the prospect of real, regular season baseball season is (this is me for the past week), the Red Sox starting pitching situation is […]

Red Sox 2015 Preview: Buchholz, Porcello, Miley, Masterson, Kelly

The Boston Red Sox starting rotation lacks the star power that the 2015 lineup bolsters, but it does provide a sort of lack of depth that was not there in the 2014 season. The starters should be able to eat up innings while also being durable from whoever the “ace of the staff” is to […]

2015 Red Sox Pitching Outlook (So Far…)

The Boston Red Sox are future focused when it comes to their pitching strategy. Ben Cherington, Larry Lucchino, John Henry and Tom Werner are looking for potential, not proven performance as they rebuild the five-man rotation and the bullpen. The team acquired former free agent and pitcher in the Red Sox organization, Justin Masterson. The […]

Right Idea? Red Sox Bring in Rick Porcello, Wade Miley, Justin Masterson

The Red Sox were pretty active in the final day of the Winter Meetings, trading for Rick Porcello, Wade Miley, and signing Justin Masterson to a one-year deal for $9.5 million. Well it looks like the Red Sox are certainly making big news in the offseason, but is it for the right reasons? First and […]

Crawford HRs, Wakefield Strong as Red Sox Beat Tigers

Let’s face it: you probably watched the first hour of the Friday night’s Red Sox game and missed the rest while the Bruins were on (the Bruins, of course, won 1-0 to earn their first trip to the Stanley Cup since 1990). Well, fear not! I’ve got you covered. Tim Wakefield filled in admirably for […]

Troy Tulowitzki a Top SS in 2010?

With the playoffs around the corner and the trade deadline passed it is about that time to take a look back at the 2009 season as a whole. It has been a season full of injuries to top players (Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran, Brandon Webb, Jake Peavy just to name a few). So I decided […]

Pablo Sandoval Showing Some Signs of Power

Quick Hits Cody Ross (OF), Florida Marlins Cody Ross has quietly put up great numbers in the last two months. Since May 1st he has hit .302 with 11 homers and 34 RBI. The power numbers are legit, Ross hit 22 homers in 145 games last year. However, the .300 batting average is a mirage […]
