SoB MLB Power Rankings 7-6-10

Welcome back for another edition of the SoB Power Rankings for Major League Baseball. This edition is jam packed with thirteen teams getting nods for the ten spots, yet only one dropping from the rankings. And eight teams have either kept their previous spot or moved just one. The Twins’ recent slide out of the […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 6-7-10

With another two weeks gone, the Rays are still the undisputed kings of the league, and don’t look to be on the verge of screwing that up anytime soon. Ditto for the undisputed princes of the league, the Yankees. The NL isn’t as clear cut, with everyone going nuts on each other; the East is […]

Red Sox Sweep Halos, Yankees Series Looms

For the first time since beating the Yankees on Opening Night, the Red Sox are again above .500 (at 15-14), and it took a four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to do it. Winning the fourth game of the series on Thursday night was no easy feat, however. The Red Sox were […]

Lackey Dominates as Red Sox Defeat Angels

The Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim continued their four-game series Wednesday night at Fenway. The pitching match-up featured John Lackey facing off against his former team and former Red Sox pitcher Joel Pineiro. The Red Sox struck for two runs, one in the second and one in the fourth, before the […]

Lester, Hermida Deliver in 5-1 Win Over Angels

Through his first three outings, Jon Lester was his typical April self (0-2, 8.44 ERA). In his career in April, Lester is 3-5 with a 4.58 ERA in 16 starts, which is clearly not so impressive. He closed the month strong, but in five April starts, he went 1-2 with a 4.71 ERA. As is […]

Holy Crap! Red Sox Pound Out 20 Hits, 17 Runs to Beat Angels

Where was this Red Sox team over the weekend against the Orioles — a team that is now 4-2 against the good guys and 3-17 against everyone else? The Red Sox made up for their lack of production over the weekend (…hell, even over the last week) with a 20-hit, 17-run performance against the Los […]

MLB Predictions 2010: Lowell Won’t Be Traded, Mets Will Win NL East

This will hopefully be a weekly list of rants and meaningless predictions that have no validity whatsoever. It’s just designed to be a fun look into the possibility of what may come in the world of Major League Baseball. Enjoy it and feel free to add your own Nostradamus insight each week. FACT #1: The […]

Three Off-Season MLB Moves That Affect the Red Sox

Plenty of action has already taken place during the off-season. The Red Sox have made their share of moves (John Lackey) and also made intentions known (Adrian Gonzalez). This could force other players out to get rid of the surplus (Clay Buccholz). But, it’s not just the Red Sox that have been moving and shaking. […]

Red Sox Lose ALDS, is it Fenway’s Fault?

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is blaming the Sox being on the wrong end of an ALDS sweep on the Fenway Park infield, calling it the worst in the game. Stop it. You might as well say the umpires were on the Angels’ payroll. Not a bad idea, actually. The fact of the matter […]

Angels Rally off Papelbon, Sweep Red Sox

1999. 2003. 2004. 2007. In the last 10 years, the Red Sox have come back from big postseason deficits. They erased a 2-0 deficit to beat the mighty Cleveland Indians in 1999. They erased a 2-0 deficit again to beat the Oakland A’s in 2003. In 2004, they miraculously beat the Yankees after a 3-0 […]

The Sox are Down 0-2 and It’s All YOUR Fault

This was supposed to be a gimme, right? What folds faster than Superman on laundry day? The Angels in the playoffs, of course. The only bigger bunch of choke artists are our good friends, the Yankees. Let’s all get excited for that classic Boston – New York ALCS that we all love and most of […]

Angels Score Three Runs in Seventh Inning to Sink Sox, Lead Series 2-0

The Red Sox have dug themselves into a very deep hole now. Even with Josh Beckett leading the way, Boston’s bats couldn’t come through as they suffered a 4-1 loss and go down 2-0 in the ALDS. L.A.’s Jered Weaver followed John Lackey’s dominating performance in game one with an equally impressive outing as he […]

Red Sox-Angels Renew Playoff Rivalry

We all know the history by now. The Red Sox are 4-0 in playoff series against the Angels all time, beating them in 1986, 2004, 2007, and 2008. So, the Mike Scoscia led Angels will take another shot, perhaps their best yet, to send the Red Sox to the links. The Angels won the season […]

Red Sox Playoff Run Could Go Any Way

There are only a handful of games left (12 and counting to be exact) and the Red Sox are right in the midst of another run to the postseason. Boston doesn’t have another night off as they roll through Kansas City and New York before ending on a home stand against Toronto and Cleveland. Winning seven […]
