Red Sox Finally Take Series From Rays, Close in on East Lead

Lately, it seems that any series involving the Yankees is sure to get the Red Sox on track.  Coming off the miserable trip to Tampa Bay, where they dropped three of four, the Red Sox visited the new Yankee Stadium for the first time and left unblemished, sweeping the brief two-game set. They split another […]

Red Sox Trade Aardsma to Mariners

The Boston Red Sox on Tuesday acquired minor league pitcher Fabian Williamson from the Seattle Mariners for righthander David Aardsma. Aardsma was 4-2 with a 5.55 ERA in a career-high 47 appearances out of the Red Sox bullpen last season. Theo Epstein had hoped for much more from Aardsma, but every time he seemed to be […]

View from the Monster 7-28

The Red Sox have continued to struggle coming out of the All Star Break while Tampa Bay is tepid and the Yankees are hot.  This has tightened the division into a three-team race and the Yankees have made the run I have been expecting.  The Yankees even filled in some of their biggest holes in […]

Sox Sweep Mariners, Manny Hurts Knee

The Red Sox took care of business out in Seattle via a sweep after losing the first three games of the west coast swing against the Angels. The Sox completed it, winning 6-3 in 12 innings Wednesday night ahead of an off-day Thursday and a big weekend series at home against the Yankees. Manny Ramirez […]

Manny Caught Jaywalking in Seattle

Manny just never stops being Manny. This laughable story was reported by Seattle Times Geoff Baker in his Mariners blog: Seems that Boston slugger Manny Ramirez was leaving the ballpark, with headphones on trying to look inconspicuous and quickly get away from the crowds still leaving the stadium. He started to cross South Royal Brougham […]

View from the Monster 6-9

The week for the Red Sox began with a home series against division leading Tampa Bay with the team’s nine-game home win streak on the line.  Like the other two times these teams have played in 2008, the home team swept the series (now twice for Boston; once for Tampa).  The Red Sox offense was back […]

J.D. Drew Stays Hot as Sox Take Series Against M’s

Of course, after the first two games that saw the Red Sox and Mariners pick up blowout wins, there would be a pitcher’s duel in the series finale. Pitching for the Red Sox was rookie Justin Masterson, who was going for his third win against zero losses. Opposing him was lefty Erik Bedard, who has […]

Sox Bats Sleep Against Mariners Again

Tim Wakefield pitched an absolute gem and gave the Red Sox every chance to win this game. But, in accordance with their previous road games, the Sox bats fell asleep and were shutout 1-0 by Erik Bedard and the Mariners. Wake went the full eight innings in the loss, allowing one run (a Yuniesky Betancourt […]

Dice-K Injured, Manny Hits No. 499 in Sox Loss

The Red Sox-Mariners game Tuesday night was a wild one with many storylines playing out. It’s rare that a random regular season game would have so many twists, but this one certainly did. The Mariners won 4-3 in walkoff fashion, but that’s not even half the story. Starter Daisuke Matsuzaka left the game with apparent […]

Colon Dominant as Sox Beat Mariners

The Red Sox have a very rare, but really good problem: they have too many starting pitchers. When faced with the same problem a few years ago, the team traded Bronson Arroyo for Wily Mo Pena and proceeded to have a rough 2006 season, suffering from poor pitching and injuries to the staff. This year, […]

All Quiet on the Johan Front

Talks have been quiet on day four of the Winter Meetings. Johan doesn’t look to be moving anytime soon. The Twins have been going around to other teams looking to get a better offer than the Red Sox. One team they have talked to is the Seattle Mariners who have CF Adam Jones and P Brandon […]
