Who the Red Sox Could Target in the 2014 Free Agent Market

The 2013 free agent market has stirred up excitement and suspicion about where possible free agents like Zack Greinke, Josh Hamilton, Michael Bourn and others will land. Looking ahead in the 2014 free agent market, the excitement and suspicion grows even more with Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson, Nelson Cruz, Tim Lincecum and other top players […]

Red Sox Should Not Pursue Josh Hamilton

Josh Hamilton is one of those players in the baseball world that is very polarizing, both negatively and positively. After missing some seasons dealing with rehab, the outfielder has really been a force for the Texas Rangers and his lone year back in 2007 with the Cincinnati Reds. His 162 game average over these six […]

David Ortiz not Joining Rangers, Agrees to 2-Year Contract with Red Sox

Rumors early in the day Friday had the Rangers very intrigued by David Ortiz. It made sense too. They have a habit of signing veterans to fill their DH slot over the last several years, with names like Sammy Sosa and Vladimir Guerrero doing the honors. So, what would stop Big Papi from extending his […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 24

Just one week remains in the regular season, and there’s still plenty to play for. No AL team has even locked up a playoff spot so far, and only two of the NL divisions have been won. Both #1 seeds, essential for drawing a tired Wildcard team, are still very much up in the air. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 23

Two weeks remain in the season, and the final push is in full swing. Only one team has officially clinched a playoff spot so far, so there’s still plenty of room to make a move. Four divisions still have three teams officially alive. Teams are really on edge trying to keep or steal playoff spots, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 22

It’s just a few weeks left until the playoffs start, and the action isn’t any less exciting. The Orioles and Yankees are still neck and neck. The Athletics are making a push for the AL West. Even the Phillies are back in the picture. That’s not to mention the several other teams still in the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 21

There’s officially less than a month left in the season, but that doesn’t mean anyone’s coasting. In fact, two divisions are still led by at most one game, and only two teams have officially been eliminated from divisional contention (and only one from playoff contention). We have a fairly good idea of who will make […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 20

Now that August is over and done with, time is starting to run out on teams to make a run. The elimination numbers are large enough for now, but we’re getting a good idea of who might have a chance of making it in. Now that September is almost upon us, many teams are starting […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 19

August is nearly done, but plenty is still going on. The Wildcard races are very heated, the seeding is by no means determined and the Dodgers are looking to make a MASSIVE push. The AL is especially volatile, with a three-way tie for the second wildcard and a new #1. Just about anything can and […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 18

In the middle of August, it’s still very difficult to be on top. Both Wildcard races are very tight, both led by just half a game. Although most of the division are led rather comfortably, the seeding is still very much up for grabs. Just getting into the back end of the playoffs uses up […]

Putting a Nail in the Red Sox Coffin

It’s over. The time has come to move on from everything the 2012 Boston Red Sox were supposed to be and the unfortunate reality we’ve witnessed over the last few months. After losing two of three against the Texas Rangers on Wednesday, the Sox are 55-57, 10.0 games back of the first place New York […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 17

Only about a month and a half remain in the season, and teams are still making plenty of pushes. Both leagues have new leaders, the Wildcard races have undergone changes and two divisions are led by just a game (none by more than 5.5). There’s still plenty of opportunity to take advantage of other teams […]

Beckett, Red Sox Lose Slugfest to Rangers

The Boston Red Sox were out slugged by the Texas Rangers 10-9 in the last game of this 10-game home stand. The Red Sox battled back throughout the ballgame and tied the game at 9-9 after a three run home run by Will Middlebrooks, his 15th of the year. Former Red Sox Adrian Beltre drove […]

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 Doubles Clobber Darvish in Win

The Red Sox have been desperately looking for the type of game where everything seems to click, after weeks of ups and downs keeping the team around .500 filled with inconsistencies on the field. And while the team did only manage to climb back up to that unavoidable .500 mark on Monday night with a […]
