Buch, Yeah! Buchholz Finally Delivers Quality Start in 5-2 Red Sox Win

If any phrase were to summarize Clay Buchholz so far this season, it would be “What the Buch??” Wednesday night’s start against the Chicago White Sox finally flipped the script, as Buchholz’s seven strong innings had Boston Red Sox fans saying “Buch, yeah!” in celebration of a 5-2 win over the best record in the […]

Price, Kimbrel Falter as Red Sox Fall to Orioles in Home Opener

Maybe it was the Baltimore Orioles, baseball’s last undefeated team. Maybe it was the heightened pressure of the home opener, Fenway Park packed in with 37,160 Boston Red Sox fans anxious to see their new ace and new team for 2016 get off to a fast start. Maybe it was just a blip, one bad […]

Nelson Cruz Wanted to be a Red Sox

Imagine what could have been. According to a report from WEEI, Seattle Mariners’ right fielder Nelson Cruz tried not once, but twice, to come to the Boston Red Sox in the past two offseasons.  Cruz is good friends with Red Sox slugger David Ortiz.

Red Sox Stand Tall, Take Five Out of Seven at Fenway

Will the Real Clay Buchholz Please Stand Up?

One inning.That’s all it took for the New York Yankees to pile on seven runs, for the Boston Red Sox to throw away a potential sweep, and Clay Buchholz to undo the narrative of an overachieving and underestimated Red Sox starting rotation after one turn through. This came one turn after shutting down the Philadelphia Phillies […]

Where Are They Now? How Former Red Sox Have Fared in the 2014 MLB Postseason

I thought, perhaps naively, that the disgrace and disgust of the 2014 Boston Red Sox season would end with Game 162. I was wrong. The reminders of the Red Sox season that (I wish) never was have been everywhere throughout the 2014 MLB postseason. The Baltimore Orioles and Kansas City Royals, two non-playoff teams last year, both […]

Just a week remains in the season. Three divisions and five overall spots have been locked up. The rest of the bracket is really starting to come into play, though a couple of teams are still looking to make a last-week push. The big question for them is how they’ll stand up against a #1 […]

Why Watch the Red Sox? For the Real Clay Buchholz to Please Stand Up

In case you missed it, the Baltimore Orioles clinched their first division title since 1997 yesterday with a 8-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.
