Yoan Moncada and the Red Sox

Today, ESPN’s David Schoenfield released a list of each MLB team’s most untouchable player at the trade deadline. When it came to the Red Sox, some might have said Mookie Betts or Xander Bogaerts, but Schoenfield listed Yoan Moncada as the Sox’s most untradeable player. Moncada would command a king’s ransom at the deadline, and he […]

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 […]

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 […]

Hanley Ramirez Is Once Again Under Fire in Boston Media

Last summer, more than a few Red Sox fans were more worried about Hanley Ramirez’s lackluster season in left field than they were about his mediocre season at the plate. This year, Hanley looks as though he was born to play first base, relieving pressure that surrounded that decision at the end of spring training. […]

Which Sox Players Will Make The All-Star Game?

David Ortiz, Xander Bogaerts, and Jackie Bradley Jr. are among the leaders in the AL all star voting as of Tuesday. Jackie sits comfortably in the number three spot (over 937,000 votes) right behind Mike Trout and Lorenzo Cain. He is expected to be a starter in the All-Star game. Meanwhile Ortiz and Bogaerts both […]

Hanley being Hanley: A tale of two seasons

Exactly one year ago today, the Boston Red Sox were 21-25 and on the verge of being swept by the hapless Minnesota Twins. The bats were cold, the pitching was atrocious, and the attitude in the clubhouse was reflective of a team who truly didn’t care. While I managed to convince myself that the Sox […]

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. […]

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 […]

What’s Next for Pablo Sandoval?

This past Tuesday, Pablo Sandoval underwent a season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. The back up third baseman will be sidelined for the remainder of the season and is expected to make a full recovery for the 2017 season. Sandoval came to Boston in 2015 with very high hopes of […]

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 […]

Edwin Encarnacion, Next Red Sox DH? David Ortiz Endorses

The rest of the country may be focused on the Republican and Democratic primaries for the 2016 presidential election, but Red Sox Nation is worried about filling another prominent position that will decide the future of our country: designated hitter. With the face of the franchise, David Ortiz, set to retire at the end of this […]

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 […]

What to Expect from Travis Shaw

By now just about everyone knows that the Red Sox are going to throw Hanley Ramirez out at first base in 2016 and hope for the best. The good part about that plan is that Ramirez can’t possibly be worse at first than he was in Left Field in 2015, so there is nowhere to […]

There’s Hope for a Hanley Trade

Sometimes in sports there exists a gap between what fans or analysts might hope or want a team to do with its roster and what that team actually does. One example involves the Red Sox and Hanley Ramirez. About halfway through the 2015 season it became apparent that Hanley was/is not interested in making himself […]

Three Red Sox Needs

Earlier in the week we looked at some of the Red Sox’ current organizational strengths heading into the offseason, and now we are taking a look at some needs the team will be working to improve on this winter. Most of them are pretty obvious and involve pitching, but let’s get into it. Below are […]
