Yankees, Marlins, Giants Interested in Brad Penny

According to SI.com, the Yankees are interested in signing former Red Sox starter Brad Penny. OK, now re-read that sentence. Re-read it again. (I don’t know why I continue to ask you to read it…but take it from me, I had to re-read it twice when I saw that the Yankees were interested). After bombing […]

Red Sox Open Up East Lead With Interleague Wins

The Red Sox took advantage of a weaker portion of their schedule by winning both series this past week against the Marlins and Braves.  The American League has been the stronger of the two leagues recently and the Red Sox continued the junior circuit’s winning ways by beating two sub-.500 National League clubs. The Yankees […]

Rain, Marlins Beat Sox in Five Innings

The Red Sox battled a revamped starting pitcher and heavy rain Thursday night, and came up on the losing end in a 2-1 loss. Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco allowed just one hit (a Kevin Youkilis HR) and earned a cheap complete game in the win, going all five innings. Jon Lester started for the Sox and also went the distance, […]

Penny Wins 100th in Fenway’s 500th Straight Sellout

Brad Penny won his 100th game as a major leaguer, tossing five innings and allowing just one unearned run in Boston’s 6-1 victory over the Marlins. He gave up three hits and four walks, and lowered his ERA to under 5.00 (now 4.94) for the first time since his first Red Sox start (when he had a 4.50 ERA). Penny’s milestone came […]

Ortiz Homers, Sox Beat Marlins

No one is bold enough to declare that David Ortiz has officially broken out of his season-long slump, but the slugger has strung together a pretty good streak in June. He continued his success Tuesday night, clubbing a solo shot to right and a two-run single as part of a 2-3 day with three RBI in the 8-3 Sox […]

Hanley Ramirez, Marlins Roll Into Fenway Park

The Red Sox road trip was a quick three-game set in Philadelphia and they return home this week for more interleague play, with the Marlins and Braves. The Marlins jumped out of the gates quickly, but have stumbled recently and will probably hold another midsummer fire-sale, similar to the deal that netted the Red Sox […]

My Trip to Wrigley Field

One of my main objectives this year was to make sure that I got to see more live baseball at ballparks and at various parks. Going to Spring Training this year, as I previously talked about, helped out with that a lot. I had already planned on making the trip to Chicago to visit my […]

The First Week of Baseball

While nothing happened in the first week of baseball that was quite at the level of excitement of Boston University’s win of the NCAA hockey championship, there was some exciting action, but also a reminder of how short life can be. Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart made just his fourth major league start and later that night was killed […]

Sox Suffer Sweep as Trade Deadline Looms

The Red Sox have had a really rough stretch since the All-Star Break. After losing 9-2 Wednesday, they are now 0-6 against the Angels and 1-2 against the Yankees since the break, and combined with their sweep of the Mariners, they are now just 4-8 since the All-Star Game. Despite the rough stretch, their losing […]

Red Sox Talking to Marlins about Manny

According to ESPN.com, the Red Sox are now engaged in serious discussions with the Florida Marlins involving OF Manny Ramirez. Ramirez makes $20 million this season, which is nearly as much as the entire Marlins roster ($22 million). But, Manny would simply be a two-month rental to help the Marlins overtake the Mets and Phillies […]
