Are The Sox Hitting Their Stride?

The Boston Red Sox have won 9 of their last 12 games.  With 5 of those wins coming on the road against some of the American league’s best, Cleveland, Baltimore, and Detroit.  This, so far successful road trip is no fluke.  From pitching, to hitting, to defense this Red Sox team is hot right now. […]

Sox Cruise to 6th straight Win

After last night’s 8-1 win over the Orioles, the Red Sox seem to be on fire. This was their 6th straight win and they have now moved into the top spot in the wildcard. They are now only one game behind Toronto for first place in the division. One of the many reasons the Sox […]

Sox Drop Series To Yankees

Are you kidding me?  This past Yankees/Sox series might have been the most frustrating regular season Red Sox series EVER.  This team has a real problem finishing games, and that will ultimately be the reason this team doesn’t make a deep playoff run.  If they even make the playoffs.  As of now, yes they are […]

Mookie Named AL Player of the Month

On Wednesday Boston’s center fielder Mookie Betts, was named AL Player of the Month for the month of July. Mookie tour up July, posting some pretty impressive stats. He batted .368, hit five home runs, had 15 RBIs, five stolen bases and had a 1.068 OPS. At just 23 years of age Betts is having […]

No Major Moves at the Trade Deadline

The Sox had a relatively quiet trade deadline today as they only acquired one player in a one for one trade. The Sox acquired left handed reliever Fernando Abad from the Minnesota Twins in exchange for minor league lefty Pat Light. Abad will help the Sox’s struggling bullpen as left handed hitters have only a […]

Pedey puts the team on his back; Sox salvage a split in Los Angeles

Heading into the month of August, it appeared as though the Sox had lost their swagger. They took a beating from the surging Tigers, and they were on the verge of being stomped out by the under-performing, last place Angels. All day long, the offense was stagnant to say the least. Steven Wright, who has […]

Is Chris Sale A Real Possibility?

Chris Sale is one of the best pitchers in all of baseball.  He started the all-star game for the American League, he is top 10 in every starting pitching category, and is going to be in the talks for Cy Young.  However, he apparently does not like throwback uniforms, and if you turn your back […]

Two Red Sox Players Considered Serious MVP Candidates

As the baseball season is at the halfway point we start examining players for baseball’s most prestigious award, the Most Valuable Player. Two Red Sox players are considered to be serious contenders in this year’s insanely competitive AL MVP race. Those two players are Xander Bogaerts and David Ortiz. However there are many other great players to […]

Drew Pomeranz’s first Red Sox start

Hopefully, the 12 days that Drew Pomeranz had off is what hurt him yesterday.  Pitching in San Diego is very different than pitching in Boston.  The fans are actually into the game.  There’s more pressure in Boston, and well really the game actually matters.  Oh, and last night he pitched against arguably the best team […]

A few Red Sox thoughts

Hanley Ramirez- Ramirez is a confusing player. Last night he had his best game of his Red Sox career, bashing three home runs and making a few outstanding defensive plays. We all know he has the talent to be a great offensive player like he was last night but sometimes it doesn’t show. He has […]

Sports Week In Review

This time of year is usually slow for most sports cities, however Boston is not like everyone else.  The Celtics, Red Sox, and The Patriots all have had a pretty busy week. The Red Sox With the all-star break behind us it’s time for The Sox to focus on the second half of the season. […]

Red Sox acquire All-star Pitcher Drew Pomeranz

Dave Dombrowski is wheeling and dealing again.  Last night, the Red Sox GM, traded Anderson Espinoza, their top pitching prospect, to the San Diego Padres for All-star lefty Drew Pomeranz.  Dombrowski is clearly in a win-now attitude and is doing whatever he can to make this team better come October.  Many people are upset at […]

Sox At The Break

The Red Sox are 49-38 at the all-star break, not bad since the last 2 seasons they were out of the playoff hunt at this time.  There are obviously places this team needs to improve before they can be legit contenders this season.  However all of us Sox fans should be happy with our team […]

Is Porcello An All Star Snub?

I do think that Rick Porcello could have been on this year’s American League all-star team.  However the guys that beat him out are no slouches, they are all mostly ace’s for their respective teams, except of course for Stephen Wright. You can make the case that Porcello has been the Red Sox best pitcher […]

Red Sox making moves: Acquire reliever Brad Ziegler from Arizona

It’s no secret that Dave Dombrowski has been in search of bullpen help as the August trade deadline fast approaches. Last night (or early this morning) the Red Sox acquired 36 year old righty Brad Ziegler from Arizona for prospects Jose Almonte and Luis Alejandro Basabe. Ziegler will immediately help to stabilize a bullpen that […]
