Mike Napoli’s Double Gives Red Sox Walk-Off Win, 3-Game Sweep of Rays

Mike Napoli came on with one out in the inning after Dustin Pedroia worked a seven-pitch walk to get on first base. Napoli was fighting at the plate before he fouled a ball off the mask of catcher Jose Molina and Molina needed to replace it. The next pitch from reliever Joel Peralta (0-1) was […]

Red Sox Sellout Streak Ends, Hanrahan Blows Save in Loss to Orioles

After 820 games, the widespread speculation regarding the legitimacy of the Boston Red Sox‘s sellout streak can finally be put to rest. The longest such streak in major professional sports, both for the regular season (794 games) and overall (820 including the postseason), has officially come to an end. In just the second game at […]

Ryan Dempster Solid, but Red Sox Offense Sputters Against Yankees

The Boston Red Sox entered Thursday night’s game with their first 2-0 start to the season since 1999, and the New York Yankees were on sweep-watch in the first series of the season. However, Andy Pettitte had other plans for the Red Sox batters. Pettitte appeared to come out with some nerves to start and […]

ESPN’s Offseason Grade for Red Sox is Not Too Far Off

About a month ago, ESPN put up an article about the grade of all the moves and different positions that the Boston Red Sox, and every other MLB team, made, and the Red Sox received a B. That’s it a straight-out B. I may be an optimist with this team, but I think this type […]

How Many Games Will the 2013 Red Sox Win?

It’s never easy to try and predict how many games any team will win, especially in baseball, and especially entering a year where the Boston Red Sox find themselves in one of the strongest divisions — on paper, that is. It’s unclear as to how things will really play out, especially with all the players who […]

Reaction to Dan Shaughnessy’s “It’s hard to get excited about these Red Sox”

Heading into the 2013 season, the Red Sox are determined to turn things around and get back on top of a competitive American League East division. Going in with a fresh start, I’m curious of what will be different this season than last season. Will clubhouse issues still exist? Will the starting pitching improve? Did […]

Clay Buchholz’s Hamstring Another Cause for Concern for Red Sox Staff

Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz suffered a mild hamstring strain last Tuesday during Spring Training fielding drills, and while both the pitcher and team have been optimistic that the injury isn’t a big deal, there is still serious cause for concern. The Red Sox have been plagued over the last few years by […]

The Changing Landscape of the American League East

Buckle your seat belts, ladies and gentlemen. This is not in the AL East we’re used to any more. After a turbulent regular season, marked by the Baltimore Orioles making the playoffs and the Boston Red Sox finishing in last place, the offseason that followed has been equally hectic. A flurry of big-name acquisitions by […]

Red Sox Won Big at Winter Meetings With Short-Term Deals

Yes, the Boston Red Sox lost out on the Josh Hamilton sweepstakes to the Los Angeles Angels, but that does not mean that the 2013 season is even close to lost. The Red Sox added some key pieces that will help over the next several seasons while developing their prospects into MLB-level talent. Here are […]

Ryan Dempster to the Red Sox on 2-Year Deal

The Red Sox and starting pitcher Ryan Dempster have agreed on a 2-year deal worth $26.5 million. He becomes the third player the Red Sox signed this offseason to a contract worth an average annual value of at least $13 million per season. Last season with the Cubs and Rangers, Dempster finished with a 3.38 […]

Why the Red Sox Should Steer Clear of the Mets’ R.A Dickey

The Boston Red Sox have made their presence known in the Winter Meetings with the aggressive signings of Mike Napoli and Shane Victorino, plugging the team’s holes at first base and right field. But the Red Sox still need to fill their biggest need: signing or trading for a starting pitcher. With several options out in […]

Lester, Red Sox Lose Temper, Lose Game to Rangers

The Boston Red Sox lost 6-3 to the Texas Rangers in a pitchers duel early on between Jon Lester and new Ranger Ryan Dempster. The loss snapped the team’s small two-game winning streak and drops them below .500 once again. Red Sox starter Jon Lester (5-10) took the loss after dominating the Rangers bats through […]

Red Sox Trade Matt Albers, Scott Podsednik for Craig Breslow

The 4 pm ET non-waiver trading deadline has come and gone, and it appears the Boston Red Sox are not hardcore buyers or sellers. The team made just a couple moves on the final day in which teams can make trades, sending both reliever Matt Albers and outfielder Scott Podsednik to the Arizona Diamondbacks for […]

Red Sox in ‘Aggressive’ Pursuit of Ryan Dempster

With the July 31st trade deadline approaching in a few weeks, the rumors of the baseball trade market will rapidly heat up, and the Red Sox will need to define themselves as buyers or sellers towards competing in the 2012 season. According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the Sox are looking to add Chicago Cubs starter […]

Red Sox Late Rally Falls Short Against Cubs at Wrigley

The Red Sox nearly pulled off an impressive ninth inning comeback after doing little offensively in their 3-0 loss on Friday afternoon in Chicago. With two outs in the ninth, they loaded the bases for Dustin Pedroia, who grounded into a force out to end the game. The lack of offense costed Boston a win […]
