Lackey Solid Against O’s, Red Sox Win 5-4

John Lackey showed resilience on the mound as he guided the Boston Red Sox to an important 5-4 victory over the division rival Baltimore Orioles. Lackey entered Saturday’s contest coming off of a rough start in Tampa Bay last week, and it appeared his misfortune was fated to continue. The Oriole offense took the right-hander […]

Red Sox Have Been Desperately Seeking Shortstops For Years – What Should Happen Next?

After former Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein pulled the trigger on the trade deadline deal that sent five-time All Star shortstop Nomar Garciaparra to the Chicago Cubs for two former Gold Glovers, shortstop Orlando Cabrera from the Montreal Expos and first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz from the Minnesota Twins, he had this to say: “We […]

Ellsbury, Red Sox Walk Off with 4-Run Ninth; Buchholz Scratched

Mired in a slow start that has him hitting just .249/.319/.338 two months into the season, Jacoby Ellsbury sure picked a fine time to deliver a key hit. Ellsbury delivered a two-out, two-run double in the bottom of the ninth inning to deliver an epic 6-5 Boston Red Sox comeback, walk-off win over the Cleveland […]

Doubront Suffers Tough Loss as Quintana Quiets Red Sox Offense

Felix Doubront pitched just about as well as anyone could reasonably expect–but the White Sox still managed to outlast the Red Sox as Chicago prevailed with a 3-1 win. The Red Sox were without a hit against Chicago starter Jose Quintana until David Ortiz lofted a single to center field, followed by two more singles […]

Drew’s Grand Slam Leads Red Sox to Blowout Win Over Rays

The Boston Red Sox had been struggling mightily over the last few games with runners in scoring position, but on Wednesday night the team broke the trend in a big way against the Tampa Bay Rays, as they snapped a three-game losing streak with a 9-2 win. In the third inning, Boston broke through against […]

Moore Too Much for Red Sox as Offense Keep Scuffling

The Boston Red Sox continued their slide in the American League East on Tuesday night at Tropicana Field as they fell to the Tampa Bay Rays by a final score of 5-3. After an early lead on a mammoth home run by David Ortiz, the team surrendered five runs to the Rays in the fourth […]

Red Sox Rebound After Tough 1st Inning To Defeat Astros

At first glance, the Red Sox didn’t look to be doing well out of the gate, but from the second glance onward, everything was fine, and the Red Sox dispatched the Houston Astros 8-4 to clinch the series and the best record in majors (17-7). After all, when you start off the game by giving […]

Red Sox Correct to Send Jose Iglesias to Triple-A

Last week, the Red Sox made the inevitable decision that most fans disapproved of. The team sent 23-year-old Jose Iglesias back down to the minor leagues in order to activate shortstop Stephen Drew from the 7-day disabled list as the veteran returns from a concussion. In six games with the Red Sox, Iglesias had shown off […]

Red Sox Lose Rubber Match in Late Innings, 3-2 to the Baltimore Orioles

The Boston Red Sox had a chance in the ninth inning to tie the game with one out and Stephen Drew on first after his first base hit with his new club, but Jim Johnson settled down for his fourth save by striking out Jonny Gomes and getting Jacoby Ellsbury to line out to the […]

With or Without Stephen Drew, Pedro Ciriaco is Answer at SS

The Red Sox, in the offseason, signed Stephen Drew to a one-year deal worth $9.5 million, hoping that he would live up to his contract. So far, it does not look good. Drew has been injured since March 7th due to a concussion, and it’s looking less likely that he will be ready to play on […]

2013 Red Sox Depth Chart: Shortstop – Stephen Drew, Pedro Ciriaco, Jose Iglesias

This offseason, the Red Sox filled a void they had up the middle with the signing of Stephen Drew, younger brother of J.D. Drew and will also wear No. 7, to a one-year, $9.5 M deal. It was a great signing in my opinion on many fronts. Yes, they overpaid for another Drew, but it is […]

To Spend or Save? Are the Red Sox Better Off?

When the infamous Megadeal took place in August, a new realm of possibilities opened up for the Red Sox going forward. With almost all significant contracts either expiring or dumped onto the Dodgers, Boston essentially had $105 MM to burn…or use responsibly, because that would be cool too. The Red Sox were no longer crippled […]

Red Sox Should Have Kept Pedro Ciriaco at Shortstop for 2013

One of the biggest questions that faced the Red Sox was the shortstop situation. Were they going to stick with Jose Iglesias? Sign a free agent? Eventually, the Red Sox signed Stephen Drew to a one-year deal worth $9 million, which signals that the Red Sox are likely sending Iglesias back to Pawtucket. The Red […]

Not Another Nancy: Red Sox Sign Stephen Drew

The Boston Red Sox have reportedly signed shortstop Stephen Drew to a one-year $9.5 million contract, an effective rental for the 2013 season while shortstop Jose Iglesias develops in the minor leagues. Stephen, the brother of former Sox outfielder J.D. Drew, as well as former MLB pitcher Tim Drew, was considered the strongest free agent […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: Infield Diamonds in the Rough

You should take Evan Longoria and Robinson Cano in the first round. You shouldn’t take Asdrubal Cabrera or David DeJesus in the first round. These are directions I shouldn’t have to waste your time with. However, I do have some helpful hints that you should waste your time with… because you know you’re just sitting […]
