On Saturday the Boston Red Sox agreed to a trade with the San Francisco Giants that will send right-handed veteran pitcher Jake Peavy back to the west coast. Boston receives right-handed minor league reliever Heath Hembree and left-handed minor league starter Rafael Escobar in the deal.
According to reports, former Red Sox shortstop Jose Iglesias will be out until at least the All-Star break, and potentially the entire 2014 season, with injuries to both of his shins. Iglesias, who was sent to the Detroit Tigers as part of the three-team trade that brought Jake Peavy to Boston, was set to take […]

With one swing of the bat, Shane Victorino turned a 2-1 Tigers lead in Game 6 of the ALCS into a 5-2 lead for the Red Sox with an emphatic grand slam over the Green Monster. With that swing, Victorino earned every bit of the $13 million per season he signed for the previous offseason.
God, I miss Jose Iglesias. I’m not going so far as to say that I wouldn’t pull the trigger 10 times out of 10 on the three-team trade that brought Jake Peavy to the Boston Red Sox. After all, that’s what Xander Boegarts is in Pawtucket for. Nevertheless, I do truly miss watching Iglesias make […]
The Boston Red Sox right now are a 22 games over .500, but still don’t have a player at third who plays on an everyday basis. However, there are a few options in the minors, including 24-year-old Will Middlebrooks and 20-year-old Xander Bogaerts. Brock Holt and Brandon Snyder have filled in nicely for the Red […]

On the eve of the trade deadline, there are plenty of rumors swirling around the Red Sox and what moves they need to do. The Red Sox, who are a half game out of first in the AL East, have some decisions to make on their team. The biggest decision for the Sox right now […]
It would appear that questions surrounding the left side of the Red Sox infield have been temporarily answered. Will Middlebrooks was sent down to Triple-A Pawtucket Tuesday in a move that will hopefully help the slumping third baseman return to form and solidify for the time being Jose Iglesias and Stephen Drew as everyday starters. […]
The Boston Red Sox have endured years of uncertainty at the shortstop position since the departure of longtime great and fan favorite, Nomar Garciaparra. Most players at the position signed by former general manager Theo Epstein experienced “short stops” in Boston, but the time may have come for the organization to take advantage of an […]
Will Middlebrooks may have homered in Sunday’s game at Baltimore, but his struggles offensively have continued. Middlebrooks showed great potential last season before getting hurt, and this season we have seen the power in spurts, but the consistency has not been there at all. There are many theories on this and some people still blame his […]
The Boston Red Sox did not have many chances to score in this game and were stymied by Chris Tillman and the Baltimore Orioles’ bullpen in the 2-0 loss on Friday evening. The Red Sox have now lost four of five game to the Orioles in 2013. Ryan Dempster had his fourth straight quality start […]
After former Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein pulled the trigger on the trade deadline deal that sent five-time All Star shortstop Nomar Garciaparra to the Chicago Cubs for two former Gold Glovers, shortstop Orlando Cabrera from the Montreal Expos and first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz from the Minnesota Twins, he had this to say: “We […]
Mired in a slow start that has him hitting just .249/.319/.338 two months into the season, Jacoby Ellsbury sure picked a fine time to deliver a key hit. Ellsbury delivered a two-out, two-run double in the bottom of the ninth inning to deliver an epic 6-5 Boston Red Sox comeback, walk-off win over the Cleveland […]
Last week, the Red Sox made the inevitable decision that most fans disapproved of. The team sent 23-year-old Jose Iglesias back down to the minor leagues in order to activate shortstop Stephen Drew from the 7-day disabled list as the veteran returns from a concussion. In six games with the Red Sox, Iglesias had shown off […]
