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 […]

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 […]

Sox Take Weekend Series From Mariners

With Friday’s night loss following a series loss to Baltimore it looked like things were getting gloomy in Red Sox nation.  However I feel like this team never feels like they are trending in the wrong direction, they are always looking forward thinking they can and will win the next one. Rick Porcello pitched what […]

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 […]

Joltin’ Jackie? Bradley Halfway to DiMaggio’s 56-Game Hitting Streak

First pitch swinging – now that’s the way to get the pressure of a hitting streak out of the way. That’s how Jackie Bradley Jr. did it Tuesday night, anyway, taking the first pitch he saw off the Green Monster for a second inning double that extended his hitting streak to 28 games. He would […]

Jackie Bradley Jr. Increases Hit-Streak to 24 Games

Jackie Bradley Jr. is one of the hottest hitters in the MLB right now. In last night’s 5-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals, JBJ went 2-3 with a HR, RBI, and a BB. Bradley extended his hit-streak to 24 games, the longest active streak in the league this year. Bradley is now batting .338, […]

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 […]

When Will the Red Sox Fire John Farrell?

That headline is admittedly ominous, but this is not a pessimistic exercise. Rather, it really is worth asking when the Red Sox are going to finally part with John Farrell as their manager and allow Torey Lovullo to take over. It is a question of when, not if, because Farrell is clearly on his last […]

Three Red Sox Strengths

Now that the offseason is officially upon us a month sooner than most fans would like, the time has come to take stock of the Red Sox organization, see just where they stand, and try to figure out how they will proceed going into and through the offseason. Since there is always a give/take, ying/yang, […]

The Good, The Bad, The Joe Kelly

When the Red Sox decided to shut Joe Kelly down for the remainder of 2015, it ended a roller coaster year for the hard-throwing right-hander. This season has included a lot of failure, and a decent amount of success for Kelly, especially recently. Kelly’s past eight starts have been encouraging, and provide some hope for […]

Red Sox Trade Alejandro De Aza to San Francisco Giants

Yesterday the Red Sox traded Alejandro De Aza to the San Francisco Giants in exchange for minor league reliever Luis Ysla. According to a tweet from Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, the Red Sox will still have to pay $650K of De Aza’s remaining salary as part of the deal. This is the second time De Aza has […]

Hanley Moving to First! Red Sox Defense is Saved!

There is a noticeable difference between a disappointment and a disaster. Dustin Pedroia missing almost half of a season’s worth of games due to injury is a disappointment; Hanley Ramirez playing Left Field is a disaster. In fact, Hanley playing just about any position is a disaster, and he is effectively a Designated Hitter at […]

What Could Have Been: The 2015 Red Sox

Coming into the 2015 baseball season, the Boston Red Sox were expected to have a potent offense, especially with the new additions of Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval. Mike Napoli, who underwent offseason surgery to repair a sleep apnea problem, tore the cover off the ball in spring training by batting .400 with a team […]

PawSox Storm Fenway Park, Red Sox Nation Gets Sneak Peek of Future OF

I have been in the woods of Maine hiking, canoeing, and reading books since the last time I posted, so I have been completely out of the baseball loop. As I’m driving home Sunday afternoon I tuned in to the second half of the Red Sox game in Detroit. I’m listening to Joe Castiglione when […]

Rusney Castillo’s Open Audition

Since the Red Sox have been unofficially eliminated from 2015 playoff contention, they have admitted to using the balance of the season to evaluate the roster’s potential for 2016 and better inform the team’s offseason strategy. One of the most interesting roster auditions is in Right Field, where the team hopes Rusney Castillo can play […]
