Red Sox Pitching Staff: Help Wanted

The biggest flaw with the Boston Red Sox team at this point in the season has been the pitching staff, and help is needed. The heralded ace David Price has been good this season with a 7-3 record and 91 strikeouts, but his 4.63 ERA leaves plenty of room for improvement. Then there is Steven Wright, who […]

The Return of Eduardo Rodriguez

When Eduardo Rodriguez dislocated his knee cap in spring training it was a shocking disappointment for many fans. He was expected to settle into Boston’s rotation and this anticipation had cultivated an anxious hope that he could build on an impressive rookie campaign. That anxiety boiled for over three months after the injury. The Red Sox front office exercised caution with […]

Kelly Struggles Against Blue Jays, Leaves Room For Hope

The honest truth is that Joe Kelly struggled against the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night. It was a bit of a strange start for Kelly, because while he did struggle, he also showed some encouraging sings that suggest the potential for future success. Kelly lasted 4.2 innings while allowing 5 runs on 9 hits […]

Red Sox Take Series Against Colorado; 7 Game Road Trip Starts Today

Last night, the Red Sox had a chance to move to 30 wins, and Jackie Bradley had a chance to extend his hitting streak to 30 games. Neither happened, and yet, the Red Sox offense still managed to score twenty runs in a series in which they took two out of three from the Colorado […]

Joe Kelly Is Exactly What The Rotation Needs.

Joe Kelly could be the solution to the Red Sox problems thus far this season.  Kelly was dominant yesterday, pitching 6 2/3 of no hit baseball to only be pulled from the game after a 2 out Double.  Kelly who just came off the disabled list said that “I feel like it might be the […]

Sox Lose Series in KC; Streaking Cleveland Comes to Boston

Unfortunately, the Red Sox cannot play the Oakland Athletics for 162 games. Boston got a reality check when it ran into a sputtering Kansas City team, posting only eleven runs over three games. Jackie Bradley Junior extended his hitting streak to 24 games with a solo home run during the second game of a day/night […]

Sox Trade Miley To Mariners, Solidify Bullpen For Next Season

Dave Dombrowski and the Red Sox have been active this off season with the huge free agent move to land a dominant ace starter in David Price, possibly the games best closer in Craig Kimbrel, and outfielder Chris Young. Boston’s latest action came in the form of a trade with the Seattle Mariners. The Sox […]

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 […]

Joe Kelly and His Moustache Continue to Impress

Joe Kelly was impressive once again in his start against the Mets yesterday. He looks like a completely different pitcher than the one we saw at the start of the season, which is very encouraging. In his first few starts after getting called back up Kelly seemed no different, but since the beginning of August his statistics […]

Joe Kelly at the End of the Leash

Enough is enough. The madness needs to stop. It is pretty clear that the Red Sox have virtually no chance at all to play meaningful games for the rest of the 2015 season, and it is also clear that the pitching staff is the rough equivalent of a high school varsity squad (no offense to […]

Red Sox Historically Bad on the Road, All But Out of AL East Hunt

Boston has been bruised, battered, and beaten in every facet of the game on their tough 7-game swing through Los Angeles and Houston. The Sox dropped four straight to the Angels in a sweep, something that has never happened on the Angels turf in the 55-year history of the series between the two teams. In […]

Red Sox Host Yankees for Crucial Series at Fenway

The surging Red Sox welcome to town the AL East leading New York Yankees this weekend for a 3-game set at Fenway. The Sox are 8-2 in their last ten games while the Yankees have been 5-5 in that same span. Boston is now just 5.5 games back of the division lead but still with […]

The Red Sox Trade Deadline Playbook

With the trade deadline a mere month away and the Red Sox in the basement of the American League East, the front office finds themselves in a precarious position. The Red Sox are sitting nine games under .500, but nonetheless are not out of the playoff picture. The question Red Sox Nation ponders is: where do […]

Red Sox Stand Tall, Take Five Out of Seven at Fenway

The Red Sox took care of business at home by winning five out of seven games during the home stand. This coming after a tough stretch on the road where the Minnesota Twins swept them in a three game set, after which they lost three out of four to the Texas Rangers. During this trip the […]

Dropkick Murphys Law: How Many Ways Can the Red Sox Find to Lose?

It’s so ridiculous, so unbelievable, that it’s almost laughable how many ways the Red Sox are finding to lose. Almost. After Eduardo Rodriguez gave the team a lift with a dazzling performance and desperately needed win, it was easy to envision that as a turning point that energized and rallied the team to a string […]
