Red Sox Ownership Has Failed The Fans

Jon Lester just pitched 8 innings of scoreless baseball in-game 1 of the NLDS.  Theo Epstein is the general manager of arguably the best team in baseball, and the team that will more than likely represent the national league in the World Series.  Terry Francona just swept The Sox in a series where he didn’t […]

Sox Drop Series To Yankees

Are you kidding me?  This past Yankees/Sox series might have been the most frustrating regular season Red Sox series EVER.  This team has a real problem finishing games, and that will ultimately be the reason this team doesn’t make a deep playoff run.  If they even make the playoffs.  As of now, yes they are […]

Is Chris Sale A Real Possibility?

Chris Sale is one of the best pitchers in all of baseball.  He started the all-star game for the American League, he is top 10 in every starting pitching category, and is going to be in the talks for Cy Young.  However, he apparently does not like throwback uniforms, and if you turn your back […]

Drew Pomeranz’s first Red Sox start

Hopefully, the 12 days that Drew Pomeranz had off is what hurt him yesterday.  Pitching in San Diego is very different than pitching in Boston.  The fans are actually into the game.  There’s more pressure in Boston, and well really the game actually matters.  Oh, and last night he pitched against arguably the best team […]

Time To Fire Farrell

The Red Sox lost 21-2 saturday night, no this is not a typo.  They lost to a great team, oh wait no they didn’t they lost to The Los Angeles Angels, a team who is 15 games under .500.  Clay Buchholz really didn’t pitch bad, only giving up 3 earned runs, but once again it […]

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 […]

Farrell Needs to Make Up His Mind

Throughout the season, the Red Sox have been very inconsistent with the catching and left field positions. In the beginning of the season, Blake Swihart was the starting catcher. Not too long after that he started to lose time to Ryan Hanigan and Christian Vazquez. Soon after Vazquez was thrown into the mix, Swihart was […]

Sox lose in San Fran, but it appears that the Price is finally right.

Last night, you saw the reason why the Red Sox forked over $217 million to David Price this past offseason. In a match-up with one of the very best in the game in Madison Bumgarner, Price was as sharp as he’s been all season long, spotting his fastball and making quick work of an opportunistic […]

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 […]

Red Sox Trade Targets

Dave Dombrowski is going to make a move before the trade deadline, the only question is will it be a big splash or a minor improvement?  With what is ranked the 4th best farm system in baseball, and with 5 players in the top 100 for prospects, Dombrowski has resources he can use to acquire […]

Why is Buchholz Still With the Sox?

The Red Sox suffered an 8-2 loss last night to the Colorado Rockies. Clay Buchholz got the start on the bump for the Sox and it was a rough one. Buchholz pitched five innings, let up seven hits, six earned runs, and three home runs. He is now 2-5 on the season with a 6.35 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Through 6 Starts, The Price Is Wrong

The 217 million dollar man has been less than stellar in the early days of his Red Sox career.  He has posted a 4-0 start, but when you look deeper at the numbers, they are not impressive.  For a guy who used to come into Fenway Park and baffle Red Sox hitters, his ERA at […]
