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 […]

Ortiz, Buchholz Help Sox Top D-Backs

This may surprise you, but the Red Sox actually played a game on Tuesday night, as they hosted the Arizona Diamondbacks for the first of a three-game series at Fenway Park. Before you get bored…you may actually want to continue reading, as the result on Yawkey Way was not nearly as disappointing as the one […]

Hanley Ramirez Would Look Good in Red Sox

This offseason, the Red Sox will be looking under ever rock, around every corner and every winter meeting room in order to find a new shortstop.  There are several names being thrown around: Marco Scutaro, Brandon Phillips, Stephen Drew, and all have positives and negatives. The Sox are even discussing moving Dustin Pedroia from second […]

Maybe Two Drews are Better Than One

As the Red Sox continue to look for a shortstop for the time being, even with Dustin Pedroia now being rumored, a brother of one current Red Sox player could head to Boston to fill in the vacancy. That man is Stephen Drew, the younger brother of right fielder J.D. Drew. The younger Drew currently […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 16 (7-20 – 7-26)

I wasn’t a fan of Mark Buehrle’s perfect game. Granted, he is an established pitcher who already has a no-hitter to his credit, but I don’t know, he just doesn’t seem dominating enough to deserve such an accomplishment. Plus, this makes people completely forget about the no-hitter by San Francisco’s Jonathan Sanchez on July 10th. […]

What’s Gotten into Kevin Millwood?

Welcome to the first installment of the Fantasy Radar: Fantasy Baseball Edition! Here I will make several weekly observations on hitters and pitchers on their recent trends and how you should deal with it going forward in the season. It will be split up in five categories: Quick Hits (hitters), Wild Pitch (pitchers), Falling Fast […]

TGIF: 2009 SS Rankings

The SS position never used to be a source of offense. Instead, it was always a defense-first area. Now it is not uncommon to get your 20 HR power instead of your Gold Glove from the left side of the infield. The Ozzie Smiths would not have a place on your roster, but today with […]

Fantasy Wrap-Up: Week 25 (9-15 – 9-21)

It’s the final week of Fantasy Baseball in all Yahoo! leagues, and for those lucky people in the Championship Round, it’s time to pick up the players who are going to surge as the regular season comes to a close. Make reckless moves! Stream your pitching! Drop those players you once never thought were droppable […]
