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 lose in San Fran, but it appears that the Price is finally right.

Last night, you saw the reason why the Red Sox forked over $217 million to David Price this past offseason. In a match-up with one of the very best in the game in Madison Bumgarner, Price was as sharp as he’s been all season long, spotting his fastball and making quick work of an opportunistic […]

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 […]

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 […]

Red Sox Interested in Michael Young and Chris Young

In preparing the 2014 Red Sox roster, Ben Cherington knows the team needs more depth in both the corner infield and center field. If Jacoby Ellsbury leaves, there is no one on the roster that could take his place. Two players the Sox are considering are Michael Young, a corner infielder for Los Angeles Dodgers, […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 7 (5-18 – 5-24)

It is my personal opinion that Boston’s David Ortiz¬†used steroids. I also believe that he is no longer taking any performance enhancers as evident by his lack of power this season. So, I speak for all of the Ortiz owners out there when I ask David Ortiz to please, start juicing again! There was a […]
