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 […]

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 […]

The Return of Eduardo Rodriguez

When Eduardo Rodriguez dislocated his knee cap in spring training it was a shocking disappointment for many fans. He was expected to settle into Boston’s rotation and this anticipation had cultivated an anxious hope that he could build on an impressive rookie campaign. That anxiety boiled for over three months after the injury. The Red Sox front office exercised caution with […]

Why is Buchholz Still With the Sox?

The Red Sox suffered an 8-2 loss last night to the Colorado Rockies. Clay Buchholz got the start on the bump for the Sox and it was a rough one. Buchholz pitched five innings, let up seven hits, six earned runs, and three home runs. He is now 2-5 on the season with a 6.35 […]

Sox Lose Series in KC; Streaking Cleveland Comes to Boston

Unfortunately, the Red Sox cannot play the Oakland Athletics for 162 games. Boston got a reality check when it ran into a sputtering Kansas City team, posting only eleven runs over three games. Jackie Bradley Junior extended his hitting streak to 24 games with a solo home run during the second game of a day/night […]

Red Sox Put .500 Firmly In Rearview Mirror; Look to Battle Astros

Three warm nights in early May translated to a romping at Fenway Park for the upstart Red Sox, who outscored the Oakland Athletics 40-15 over three games en route to a sweep. This is a team that is fun to watch on most nights, and if they stay healthy, will be able to challenge the […]

Red Sox Prepared to Take on A’s

After the Red Sox managed to salvage the final game in New York, the second place team will be looking to rebound by playing the Oakland A’s. The Athletics are 14-18, and are coming off two straight losses in Baltimore. The Sox will open the home stand with Clay Buchholz (1-3, 5.71) who will be […]

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 […]

A Preview of the Suddenly High-Profile Red Sox and White Sox’s Upcoming Series

The Red Sox are flying into Chicago to take on the high-powered White Sox, who boast an 18-8 record, and a 3 game lead in the AL Central. Both teams have won eight of their last ten, and are both coming off of a much-needed day of rest. The White Sox last week, split a […]

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 […]

Doubts Linger for Red Sox as Buchholz Falters in Price’s Footsteps

Opening Day was everything the Boston Red Sox wished and planned for after the offseason. Wednesday’s game? Affirmation of everything that Red Sox fans were worried about coming into this season. One day after David Price struck out 10 batters to show why the Red Sox signed him as the new ace and face of the pitching staff, […]

Sox Trade Miley To Mariners, Solidify Bullpen For Next Season

Dave Dombrowski and the Red Sox have been active this off season with the huge free agent move to land a dominant ace starter in David Price, possibly the games best closer in Craig Kimbrel, and outfielder Chris Young. Boston’s latest action came in the form of a trade with the Seattle Mariners. The Sox […]

Red Sox Keep Buchholz…For Now

When the news came out on Wednesday that the Red Sox had exercised their option on Clay Buchholz, it seemed obvious and mystifying at the same time. The news itself was largely unsurprising, but the next step in the process remains unclear. For some reason the Red Sox were expected to pick up the $13 […]

Clay Buchholz Has a Hazy Future with Red Sox

If it seems like Clay Buchholz has gone mostly unnoticed since the All-Star break, it’s because he has. The Red Sox’ subpar record and recent youth movement have combined to make Buchholz and his future an afterthought in recent weeks, but that is not likely to continue much longer. Of course it helps that he […]

Joe Kelly at the End of the Leash

Enough is enough. The madness needs to stop. It is pretty clear that the Red Sox have virtually no chance at all to play meaningful games for the rest of the 2015 season, and it is also clear that the pitching staff is the rough equivalent of a high school varsity squad (no offense to […]
