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 […]

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, […]

Offseason Script Finally Goes as Planned in Opening Day Win for Price, Red Sox

So far, so good. For once, or for one day, the Boston Red Sox saw the offseason script  carried out to perfection as they opened the 2016 season with a 6-2 win over the Cleveland Indians. Making their Red Sox debuts, David Price struck out 10 over six innings and newly acquired closer Craig Kimbrel […]

Opening Day is Here (Kind of) for the 2016 Red Sox

Drama has swirled around the Boston Red Sox since the end of the 2015 regular season after finishing 78-84 and placing dead last in the American League East. The front office decided that enough is enough, so they made moves to shake up the roster with the goal of benefitting the Red Sox immediately. After trading […]

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 […]

Terry Francona Will Join John Farrell For His First Chemotherapy Session

Video: Jackie Bradley Jr. Makes Catch Against Monster, Doubles Runner Off First

Jackie Bradley Jr. is batting .203 with a .290 on base percentage for the 2014 season. His slugging percentage is a paltry .292, and in case you’re wondering, no, it’s not good when your OBP and your SLG are equivalent (unless your name is Barry Bonds, maybe). In the past seven days, Bradley has (somehow) […]

Looking Back: Was John Farrell Robbed of Manager of the Year Award?

Terry Francona absolutely deserved to win AL Manager of the Year this past Tuesday. In his first year in Cleveland he took a team that went 68-94 in 2012 to 92 wins and a wild card birth. During the winter before the 2013 season the Inidans added Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn, but many still […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 25

Just one week remains until the playoffs begin. Four divisions and five slots overall are locked up. The Wildcard race in the East is still heated at this late stage, so pay close attention to the melees in the upcoming weeks. It’ll be fun to watch who ends up with which seed, so let’s look […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 18

August is here, and there’s still plenty going on. Most importantly, the Biogenesis suspensions have been dished out. A-Rod is appealing, though the Yankees aren’t in the best position anyway with other teams vastly improving their records. Plenty of teams are still in the race, and the trade deadline helped out plenty of them. Especially […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 13

Did anyone think Pittsburgh would be the best team in the majors at all, let alone this late? Don’t lie, you know you didn’t. Yet here they are, 51-30 (.630) and winners of nine straight. Boston has joined them as new leaders of a league, thanks to some problems in the camps of Oakland and […]

Rain Delay Doesn’t Stop Sox in 8-1 Win Over Cleveland

After getting blown out on Thursday night 12-3 on Terry Francona’s return to Fenway as Indians manager, the Red Sox had a tougher test on Friday night with former Red Sox pitcher Justin Masterson on the mound for the Cleveland Indians. But, the Sox came out strong winning 8-1 with John Lackey having a great […]

Francona Wins Big in Return to Fenway

In his return to Fenway Park as manager of the Cleveland Indians, Terry Francona received a much-deserved standing ovation and video tribute.
