Wakefield Sets Red Sox IP Record, Beats Indians

Tim Wakefield offered another big blow to the gigantic ego of Roger Clemens, and passed the former Red Sox ace for the team record in total innings pitched with 2,777. It was no sure thing that the knuckleballer would even set the record on Tuesday night, given his recent up-and-down performances. After dominating the Phillies […]

Dice-K Dominates Tribe, Runs Scoreless Streak to 13.2 IP

Fresh off a disappointing loss on Sunday against the Orioles, the Red Sox headed to Cleveland to take on another punchless, hapless team in the Indians. This isn’t your father’s Indians. This isn’t the Manny Ramirez, Jim Thome, and Roberto Alomar 1,000-run Indians. Hell, this isn’t even the Indians of a couple years ago. This […]

Armando Galarraga Perfect Game Lost By Bad Call: Expanded Instant Replay Needed

The NFL has it. The NBA has it. Hell, even the NHL, that red-headed step brother of a professional sports league has it. What is “it,” exactly? Expanded instant replay. After a certain gaffe on Wednesday night involving a near-perfect game, it’s become clearer than ever that Major League Baseball needs to finally step into […]

Red Sox Take Momentum Into Postseason

The Red Sox finished their final game of the season with a back and forth 12-7 win over the Cleveland Indians to complete a four-game sweep. The game started on a stomach churning moment when Clay Buchholz surrendered a leadoff home run just three pitches into the game. David Ortiz helped the Sox take the […]

Sox Game Not Televised In My Area

So…I listened to Joe Castiglione and the great Dave O’Brien on the radio. They do some fine work, but no TV (the game was apparently on NESN Plus) means no Heidi Watney. Damn Bruins! Anywho, we saw the good, the bad, and the ugly from Josh Beckett. The bad? Allowing six hits and four runs […]

Uncle Lester is Back: Sox Beat Indians 3-0

The collective brick-s**ting that occurred across New England last Friday after Melky Cabrera welted a line drive straight into Jon Lester’s knee ceased Thursday night as Lester handcuffed the Cleveland Indians to win 3-0. It was a reassuring performance for the Red Sox’s best starter of the second half as Boston looks to the post-season. […]

Red Sox Face Indians With Chance to Rest

The Red Sox finally backed into the playoffs despite limping down the stretch. The Angels must really want the first round series with the Red Sox as their beating the Rangers put the Red Sox in, simultaneously setting up the matchup. The Sox are 3-2 against the Indians this season and split their earlier two-game […]

Carl Pavano Traded to Twins

Former Red Sox farmhand Carl Pavano was acquired by the Twins for a player to be named later to help shore up their starting rotation. Pavano, and Tony Armas, Jr., were the two players the Red Sox sent to Montreal in 1997. Though he never pitched a game for the Red Sox, he was hyped […]

Masterson Gets New Opportunity With Indians

Remember that commercial for Olympia Sports where Justin Masterson gets in a taxi and the driver gushes about him? Well for now, those days are over. As part of the trade that put Victor Martinez in a Red Sox Jersey, Masterson was the odd man out. He now finds himself in Cleveland in a role […]

Indians Trade Catcher Victor Martinez to Red Sox, LaRoche Dealt to Atlanta

After days of speculation and with just minutes to spare, Boston.com reports that the Cleveland Indians have finally traded All-Star catcher Victor Martinez to the Boston Red Sox in exchange for pitchers Justin Masterson, Nick Hagadone, and Bryan Price. Right after that, the Sox dealt newly acquired 1B Adam LaRoche to the Atlanta Braves in exchange for 1B Casey […]

Video: Bird Helps Indians Beat Royals

The Royals have found many ways to lose over the years. But, Thursday night’s loss against the Indians takes the cake. Other than those ridiculous midges helped the Indians beat the Yankees in the 2007 playoffs, I don’t remember animals or bugs directly leading to the result of a game. Thursday, the Indians received help from […]

Red Sox Finally Take Series From Rays, Close in on East Lead

Lately, it seems that any series involving the Yankees is sure to get the Red Sox on track.  Coming off the miserable trip to Tampa Bay, where they dropped three of four, the Red Sox visited the new Yankee Stadium for the first time and left unblemished, sweeping the brief two-game set. They split another […]

Sox Explode for 12 Runs in Sixth Inning, Beat Indians 13-3

Judging by the box score, you never would have guessed that the Sox were losing this game at any point in the evening. Early rainfall threatened the final game of the Sox and Indians two game series, but the weather subsided and the Sox bats came alive. Playing without Kevin Youkilis (back), David Ortiz (neck), […]

Indians Rough Up Masterson, Win 9-2

First, let me address news that Jerry Remy is suffering from complications due to recent lung cancer surgery. I’ve been watching the Red Sox for some 15 years, and about 99% of the games were announced by Remy as the color-commentator. To me, he embodies Red Sox Nation, and he will be sorely missed. I […]

Red Sox Lose Win Streak, Will Travel to New Yankee Stadium

After the Red Sox ended their undefeated homestand, the Red Sox extended the win streak to 11 with a win in the opener in Cleveland, but the Indians snapped the streak in the second game.  Despite the loss of the streak, the Sox claimed the series, their first on the road this season.  The Red Sox traveled to […]
