Video: Looking at the Red Sox Celebrating ALDS Victory

You’ve seen the game, or read the recap, or scanned the box score, and have heard about and analyzed and digested and discussed the onslaught of Rays pitching changes, Farrell’s flip-flop pinch hit decisions, the X-factor Xander Bogaerts scoring the tying and insurance run anyway,Craig Breslow’s 4 Ks, Koji’s four-out save. But have you read […]

Red Sox Advance to ALCS with 3-1 Win Over Rays

They may be itchy, they may be unruly, but the beards will live to grow another day. The Boston Red Sox will be playing in the American League Championship Series. Shane Victorino drove in the go-ahead run in the 7th inning with an infield hit, Craig Breslow recorded five huge outs in relief of Jake […]

2009 MLB Playoffs Pick ‘Em: LCS

The playoffs are in full swing, and sadly, the Red Sox have been eliminated, falling in a shocking three-game sweep at the hands of the Angels. They can break our hearts, but they can’t break our competitive spirits! Not only were a few of us were fooled by the Sox-Angels series, but the Dodgers-Cardinals series […]

Sox Lose Dream as Rays Win Game 7

The Red Sox had used all their energy to get to Game 7 of the ALCS. With no Mike Lowell or even Manny Ramirez (though Jason Bay has been a nice substitute), the Red Sox clawed their way to a deciding game after being down in the series 3-1. For the first time since 2003, […]

Miracle Red Sox Force Game 7

You all know the story. In fact, this is the fourth time since 2003 that the Red Sox have forced a Game 7 in the ALCS after winning Game 6. They did so by beating the Rays 4-2 behind a gutsy effort from an injured Josh Beckett. The Sox righty allowed two runs on four […]

Sox Have History on Their Side in Game 6

Tonight, the Red Sox will take on the Tampa Bay Rays in another do-or-die game for the team. The Sox made a miraculous comeback in Game 5, down 7-0 with two outs in the seventh inning, to win 8-7 and force Game 6. Josh Beckett will take the mound and oppose righty “Big Game” James […]

Red Sox Stage Historic Comeback, Force Game 6

Scott Kazmir, who was pushed up to Game 5 for a variety of reasons, pitched a gem through six innings, but Boston’s patient bats forced him out of the game as he reached 111 pitches. When Kazmir left the game, the Red Sox were down 5-0 through six, and by the time they came to […]

Red Sox Reeling after Rays Win 13-4

We have them right where we want them! Isn’t the 2008 ALCS looking a lot like the 2004 and 2007 ALCS? While the Red Sox have little chance at moving onto the World Series, there always is just that little chance. They have looked really bad in two games at Fenway Park, punctuated by a 13-4 embarassing loss […]

Rays Blast Red Sox 9-1 in Game 3

The Tampa Bay Rays came into Boston for Game 3 and blasted four home runs (B.J. Upton, Evan Longoria, Rocco Baldelli, Carlos Pena) en route to a 9-1 victory. Joe Maddon’s crew now has a 2-1 series lead, and can end the series in Boston with wins in Game 4 and 5. Jon Lester was […]

Tropicana Field Might be on National TV Soon

Here’s something a lot of people don’t exactly think about much: the quality of one of the baseball stadiums that might be involved in the World Series. I’m referring to the closed dome stadium in Tampa, Tropicana Field. The reason I bring this up is that we are three Tampa wins away from having this […]

Beckett Horrible in Sox Extra-Inning Loss

The Red Sox offense exploded for four home runs in Game 2, and most of the time it’s good enough for a win. Well, that’s unless you have the 2008 version of Josh Beckett on the hill to start the game, and the 2008 version of Mike Timlin to close it out. Josh Beckett absolutely […]

The Boston Red Sox Win the ALCS

Down three games to one the Red Sox have come back against the Cleveland Indians to advance to the World Series. It’s only been since 2004 since the Red Sox have been to the World Series but this is a special year. This is a different team and there have been different conditions. There has […]

Game 4: Red Sox vs Cleveland Indians In-Game Report

Tim Wakefield (17-12, 4.76) vs Paul Byrd (15-8, 4.59) ALL GAME LONG Paul Byrd looked good in the first inning, hitting his spots. Paul Byrd past 76 pitches has guys hitting .377 or higher so the Sox need to work the count. Both old guys are pitching well… this is a nerve racking one. Who […]
