Sox Take Two From SF Giants

Over the past two nights, the Red Sox defeated the San Francisco Giants twice, they moved into sole possession of first place in the AL East, and they provided us with an extremely entertaining eighteen innings of baseball. June is firmly in the rearview mirror for the suddenly wicked hot Boston Red Sox, and for […]

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 […]

Which Sox Players Will Make The All-Star Game?

David Ortiz, Xander Bogaerts, and Jackie Bradley Jr. are among the leaders in the AL all star voting as of Tuesday. 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 […]

Three Options in Left Field for the Red Sox

Two nights ago in San Francisco, Chris Young made a highlight-reel catch that an average outfielder would typically not make. Young was only in left field because Blake Swihart “severely sprained” his right ankle in a game against the Blue Jays, and Swihart was only in left because Brock Holt is on the disabled list with […]

Do the Red Sox Understand Platoons?

That is a mostly rhetorical question, but I’ve been wondering about it for a little over a week. Most of my confusion and bewilderment concerns Chris Young, and the fact that he has been poorly utilized by the Red Sox in 2016. I’ve emphasized it a lot before, but it’s worth mentioning again that Chris […]

When Will the Red Sox Fire John Farrell?

That headline is admittedly ominous, but this is not a pessimistic exercise. Rather, it really is worth asking when the Red Sox are going to finally part with John Farrell as their manager and allow Torey Lovullo to take over. It is a question of when, not if, because Farrell is clearly on his last […]

David Murphy Opts Out; Should the Red Sox Opt In?

With Opening Day a week away, the Boston Red Sox are having an organizational meeting on Monday to start setting the 25-man roster. In addition to determining the fifth starter to replace the injured Eduardo Rodriguez and filling out the bullpen, Dave Dombrowski and John Farrell have an interesting decision to make regarding the fate of […]

Red Sox to Retire Wade Boggs’ Number… But is it the Right Thing to do?

The Red Sox announced on Monday that they plan to retire former third-baseman Wade Boggs’ number, 26, during the 2016 season. He went on to play for the New York Yankees for four years and ended his career with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 1999.

PawSox Storm Fenway Park, Red Sox Nation Gets Sneak Peek of Future OF

I have been in the woods of Maine hiking, canoeing, and reading books since the last time I posted, so I have been completely out of the baseball loop. As I’m driving home Sunday afternoon I tuned in to the second half of the Red Sox game in Detroit. I’m listening to Joe Castiglione when […]

Small Deals Can Make a Big Impact on the Red Sox

With the trade deadline action in full force, the Red Sox need to take a serious look at the players on their roster and their roles in the 2016 season. Shane Victorino was the first Sox player to be dealt, but there are more moves to be made in order to best develop a functioning […]

Brock Holt Up To His Usual Ways in All-Star Game Appearance

The Red Sox’ lone representative in the All-Star Game performed just as expected Tuesday night. It is exactly what the members of Red Sox Nation have been seeing from Brock Holt all season. Holt came in to the game in the 7th inning to pinch run for Mike Trout. He promptly executed a delayed steal […]

Mookie Betts Emerging for Red Sox

Despite their position at the bottom of the American League East, the Red Sox have gone on a recent run that has left them in position to contend for the division title in the second half of the season. Much of the credit for that run has gone, deservedly so, to players like Brock Holt, […]

Red Sox Host Yankees for Crucial Series at Fenway

The surging Red Sox welcome to town the AL East leading New York Yankees this weekend for a 3-game set at Fenway. The Sox are 8-2 in their last ten games while the Yankees have been 5-5 in that same span. Boston is now just 5.5 games back of the division lead but still with […]

Brock Holt Headed to Cincinnati for All-Star Game

Brock Holt has been named to the American League All-Star team. The public may continue to vote, leaving the possibility for Xander Bogaerts to be voted on the team, too. The 27-year-old hitter is the only player from the Boston Red Sox scheduled to travel to Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati to participate in […]
