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 […]

Time To Fire Farrell

The Red Sox lost 21-2 saturday night, no this is not a typo.  They lost to a great team, oh wait no they didn’t they lost to The Los Angeles Angels, a team who is 15 games under .500.  Clay Buchholz really didn’t pitch bad, only giving up 3 earned runs, but once again it […]

Looking Ahead to July for the Suddenly Free-Falling Red Sox

In the months of June, the Red Sox went an awful 10-16. During that span, the Orioles have opened a 5.5 game lead over the once first place Boston Red Sox, and the Blue Jays have suddenly found an identity (and are currently tied with the Sox for second place). Obviously, this does not bode […]

Buchholz Struggles, Bats Fail Red Sox In Texas Finale

The Red Sox desperately needed a solid start from Clay Buchholz on Sunday; they did not get one. Sunday’s 6-2 loss can be attributed to a lack of timely hitting backed up by completely subpar pitching. It might be easy to say that it’s not surprising that Buchholz struggled against a Rangers team with the […]

Farrell Needs to Make Up His Mind

Throughout the season, the Red Sox have been very inconsistent with the catching and left field positions. In the beginning of the season, Blake Swihart was the starting catcher. Not too long after that he started to lose time to Ryan Hanigan and Christian Vazquez. Soon after Vazquez was thrown into the mix, Swihart was […]

Sox Take Weekend Series From Mariners

With Friday’s night loss following a series loss to Baltimore it looked like things were getting gloomy in Red Sox nation.  However I feel like this team never feels like they are trending in the wrong direction, they are always looking forward thinking they can and will win the next one. Rick Porcello pitched what […]

Ortiz’s Historic Home Run Milestone

In the bottom of the fourth inning in a match up against the Seattle Mariners Friday night, David Ortiz hit a home run to deep center field, the 521st of his career. This ties Ted Williams on the all time home run list. This was Ortiz’s 463rd home run with the Red Sox. His 18th […]

Orioles,Sox preview

The Baltimore Orioles and The Boston Red Sox are two of the best teams in the American League.  They both have a record of 36-26, and both have a high-powered offense.  These two teams played a few weeks ago and split a 4 game series.  If you remember that series the Red Sox bullpen imploded, […]

Red Sox Pitching Staff: Help Wanted

The biggest flaw with the Boston Red Sox team at this point in the season has been the pitching staff, and help is needed. The heralded ace David Price has been good this season with a 7-3 record and 91 strikeouts, but his 4.63 ERA leaves plenty of room for improvement. Then there is Steven Wright, who […]

Red Sox Benefit from an Opportunistic Draft Strategy

The Red Sox selection of amateur lefty Jason Groome was a case of extremely good fortune and timing. The pick was almost universally regarded as a steal, as many writers felt that Groome was a top 2 prospect in this draft, and was at one point considered the favorite to go first overall. That Groome […]

Red Sox Draft LHP Jason Groome

The Red Sox selected left-handed pitcher Jason Groome with the 12th overall pick in this years MLB Draft. Groome is a 17 year old senior from Barneget High School in Barneget, New Jersey, and was the top rated prospect heading into the draft. The lefty stands six feet six inches tall, weighs 220 pounds, and is currently committed to Vanderbilt University, which also […]

Jackie sits comfortably in the number three spot (over 937,000 votes) right behind Mike Trout and Lorenzo Cain. He is expected to be a starter in the All-Star game. Meanwhile Ortiz and Bogaerts both […]
