Sorting Through the Surplus of Red Sox Outfielders

There’s certainly never too much of a good thing, but the Boston Red Sox seem to face a dilemma in the coming weeks as they sort through an incredible amount of outfielders.

Chen Out-Duels Beckett, Wins Series for Orioles

Pitchers who lack a decent fastball rarely survive in the MLB, but there’s such a thing as too much of a good thing. Josh Beckett learned that the hard way Wednesday, losing a 2-1 pitchers’ duel to Baltimore starter Wei-Yin Chen at Fenway Park despite a pinpoint-accurate fastball. With the loss, the Red Sox fell […]
