Red Sox To Battle Giants In Two Game Mini-Series

The Red Sox look to rebound from a tough series against the Blue Jays when they face-off against the San Francisco Giants for a quick two game series at AT&T Park. The Sox, (33-24, T-1st in A.L East), will head back to the Bay Area for the first time since 2013, and will go up against a loaded Giants squad, (35-24, […]

Sox Have Lost 4 of The Last 5

The Boston Red Sox have lost 4 of their last 5, and they have all been pretty ugly.  The pitching staff has been terrible, the hitting hasn’t been what it was a few weeks ago and the team looks a little flat.  Hanley Ramirez and Travis Shaw offense has been slipping, Jackie Bradley hasn’t been […]

Betts Hits 3 Home Runs; Knocks in 5 RBIs

Anyone watching the Red Sox take on the Orioles last night knew that they were watching an impressive Mookie Betts show-and that was only after the second inning. On the second pitch of the game, Betts sent a 1-0 fastball over the center field wall in Camden Yards. Pedroia added a home run for the […]

Mookie Has Muscles

Mookie Betts can absolutely rake …. in other news water is wet and baseballs are round. It was clear that Betts is a difference maker after he was a 4.8-win player in his rookie season, where he hit .291/.341/.479 with 10 DRS in centerfield. So putting him atop the Red Sox lineup again in 2016 […]

Saving His Best For Last.

David Ortiz is having one of the best seasons of his career.  The way he’s swinging the bat, it doesn’t look like he’ll be slowing down anytime soon.  Ortiz looks locked in this season.  He’s batting a cool .320, has a OBP of .405, a slugging percentage of .695, and an absurd OPS of 1.101. […]

Steven Wright Cements Status as Red Sox Ace with Complete Game Win Over Yankees

Tim Wakefield on steroids. It is probably a poor turn of phrase given the stigma of performance-enhancing drugs and the recent spate of suspensions as Major League Baseball cracks down on PED violations. But how else to describe this start by Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright? Already putting up unfathomable numbers through his first five […]

Ortiz Goes Ballistic After Questionable Third Strike Call

Last night the Red Sox were in the Bronx for the first game of a three game series against the Yankees. Top of the ninth, bases loaded, one out, down by one run, Big Papi is up. Nobody else you’d rather have at bat in this situation. Ortiz had a great chance to capitalize late in the […]

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 […]

No Papi, No Problem: Porcello, Bradley Lead Red Sox to 1-0 Win Over Braves

No Papi? No problem. The Boston Red Sox, after escaping a 12-inning Sunday night affair against the Houston Astros with a win, didn’t land in Atlanta until 5:30 a.m. on Monday morning. As a result, Red Sox manager John Farrell decided to sit David Ortiz in their first interleague game and also give first baseman Hanley […]

Price, Kimbrel Falter as Red Sox Fall to Orioles in Home Opener

Maybe it was the Baltimore Orioles, baseball’s last undefeated team. Maybe it was the heightened pressure of the home opener, Fenway Park packed in with 37,160 Boston Red Sox fans anxious to see their new ace and new team for 2016 get off to a fast start. Maybe it was just a blip, one bad […]

Edwin Encarnacion, Next Red Sox DH? David Ortiz Endorses

With the face of the franchise, David Ortiz, set to retire at the end of this […]

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, […]

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.
