Hanley’s Walk Off Moonshot

Thursday night’s match up against the New York Yankees was an important game for the Red Sox to win. Coming into Thursday only one game ahead of Baltimore, the Red Sox had some pressure on them. What started off as a slow night turned into one to remember. Heading into the bottom of the ninth […]

Will The Sox Win The AL East?

As September is nearing, playoffs is becoming a predominant topic in baseball. The powerhouse hitting Red Sox are now in a position where the postseason is not a guarantee. They have been bouncing in and out of first, second, and third place for a majority of the season. The Red Sox, Blue Jays and Orioles […]

Are The Sox Hitting Their Stride?

The Boston Red Sox have won 9 of their last 12 games.  With 5 of those wins coming on the road against some of the American league’s best, Cleveland, Baltimore, and Detroit.  This, so far successful road trip is no fluke.  From pitching, to hitting, to defense this Red Sox team is hot right now. […]

Sox Drop Series To Yankees

Are you kidding me?  This past Yankees/Sox series might have been the most frustrating regular season Red Sox series EVER.  This team has a real problem finishing games, and that will ultimately be the reason this team doesn’t make a deep playoff run.  If they even make the playoffs.  As of now, yes they are […]

Two Red Sox Players Considered Serious MVP Candidates

As the baseball season is at the halfway point we start examining players for baseball’s most prestigious award, the Most Valuable Player. Two Red Sox players are considered to be serious contenders in this year’s insanely competitive AL MVP race. Those two players are Xander Bogaerts and David Ortiz. However there are many other great players to […]

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 […]

Retirement Looms Large For Big Papi

Here’s a storyline that never seems to get old: once again, David Ortiz, with his bat, carried his Boston Red Sox to another victory. Against former teammate Jake Peavy, Ortiz crushed a 451 foot three-run home run to put the game out of reach for the San Francisco Giants, en route to a 4-0 victory. […]

Sox Perform Well at ASG, Back in Action Tonight in NYC

All Star Weekend was memorable for more than just the 61 home runs that Giancarlo Stanton belted during the Home Run Derby. This game held special meaning for David Ortiz, the AL DH. In his final season, and final all star game, Ortiz was the starter for the AL at DH. While Ortiz was certainly […]

Sox At The Break

The Red Sox are 49-38 at the all-star break, not bad since the last 2 seasons they were out of the playoff hunt at this time.  There are obviously places this team needs to improve before they can be legit contenders this season.  However all of us Sox fans should be happy with our team […]

Starting for the Red Sox in San Diego will be David Ortiz (DH), Xander Bogaerts (SS), Mookie Betts (OF), and Jackie Bradley Jr. (OF).

Red Sox Could Start Four Players at MLB All-Star Game

Last year, the lone representative from the Boston Red Sox at the All-Star Game was Brock Holt. Holt saw little playing time, and the Red Sox were deservedly under-represented. This year however, the Sox seem primed to send four position players to San Diego to take on the NL. This is even more exciting to […]

Kevin Durant, Please Come To Boston

Yesterday the Celtics had a meeting with Kevin Durant in the Hamptons. Tom Brady, the GOAT, was in attendance at the meeting to help Danny Ainge in the recruitment of Durant. Also David Ortiz would have been there to help but he was busy nuking baseballs into the stands at Fenway. Kevin Durant needs to […]

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 […]

Ortiz’s Historic Home Run Milestone

In the bottom of the fourth inning in a match up against the Seattle Mariners Friday night, David Ortiz hit a home run to deep center field, the 521st of his career. This ties Ted Williams on the all time home run list. This was Ortiz’s 463rd home run with the Red Sox. His 18th […]
