Report: Sox Interested in Billy Wagner

According to a major league source through the Boston Globe, the Red Sox and Mets may be discussing a deal that would send veteran reliever Billy Wagner to the Sox. Wagner, 38, was placed on waivers Wednesday, and may have been claimed by the Red Sox. A Florida radio station reported that the Sox claimed […]

The Roy Halladay Trade Sweepstakes

Quite possibly the most season-altering move a team could make would be trading for an ace before the deadline to fulfill a hole in the starting rotation. We saw the benefits of that for Milwaukee last year when they acquired C.C. Sabathia and rode his arm into the playoffs. Well, fortunately for us rumor mill […]

Pedro Martinez To Sign with Phillies?

Former Sox ace Pedro Martinez will make his long-awaited return to the major leagues as early as Wednesday with the Phillies, assuming he passes his physical. Pedro privately worked out with the Phillies twice last week, and apparently impressed the team enough to begin negotiations. Pedro hasn’t thrown a pitch in the major leagues since […]

Citi Field: My First Impression

After checking out the new stadium in the Bronx I wanted to check out the new home of the New York Mets. Now, my latest chance to see a game at Citi Field was going to be to wait until the Giants came into town and to buy tickets to see Tim Lincecum make the […]

Sox Slug Out 16 Hits in Win Over Mets

Kevin Youkilis hit a deep foul ball (that looked like a home run) in the fifth inning. After the second replay review in as many days, the umpires confirmed the ball was foul. Youkilis then flied out to right, and was obviously fuming as he headed to the dugout. In his next at bat in […]

Papelbon Blows Save, Game Against Mets

Josh Beckett is starting to look like the Sox ace again. After a win against Seattle last time out, Beckett took the hill and was dominant Saturday night. He allowed one unearned run (though he recorded the error) in eight innings. He allowed just five hits and one walk with five strikeouts and was in […]

Dice-K Returns, Sox Fall to Mets

Daisuke Matsuzaka made his long awaited return to the mound Friday night in his first start since April 14. Dice-K spent more than a month on the DL due to right arm fatigue, which stemmed from his stupid involvment in the World Baseball Classic for Team Japan. Of course, in Dice-K’s return, he gets to […]

The First Week of Baseball

While nothing happened in the first week of baseball that was quite at the level of excitement of Boston University’s win of the NCAA hockey championship, there was some exciting action, but also a reminder of how short life can be. Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart made just his fourth major league start and later that night was killed […]

Mets Not Interested in Manny Ramirez

Will anyone sign Manny? He’s perhaps one of the Top 5 hitters in all of Major League Baseball, but here in late January, Manny is unsigned and does not have a clear destination. The Mets became the latest team to shy away from Ramirez, who was Ruthian last season after his trade to the Dodgers. […]

Mets and Red Sox Minor Leaguers Suspended

Mets pitcher Junior Guerra and Boston Red Sox outfielder Cristopher De La Rosa were suspended for 50 games each Friday following positive tests under baseball’s minor league drug program. Both penalties will be served at the start of the season. De La Rosa is a member of Boston’s Dominican Summer League team. He tested positive for […]

Francisco Rodriguez Signs with Mets

The Mets have officially kicked off baseball’s winter meetings by officially signing closer Francisco Rodriguez to a three-year, $37 million deal that includes incentives. K-Rod set the major league record for saves in one season last year with 62. New York desperately needed to address their need for bullpen arms, and landed probably the best […]

Yankees, Mets Quiet in October

This year has provided a rare occurrence for New York: both baseball teams did not make the playoffs. Now, despite the recent increased competitiveness of the Mets, their fans are more used to failure than Yankees fans are. So for their fans, switching focus to something else in October or watching the Yankees would not […]

Sources: Mets Contact Sox About Manny Ramirez

According to the Star-Ledger, officials from both the Mets and Red Sox have confirmed that trade talks about Manny Ramirez have taken place between the two teams. The Red Sox suspect that GM Omar Minaya wants Ramirez more than Mets ownership does. Regardless, the Mets are reluctant to part with top-prospect talent in exchange for […]

Manny Ready to Leave, Four Teams Interested

Could Manny Ramirez really be traded before the July 31 trading deadline? Manny appears ready to leave. “If the Red Sox are a better team without Manny Ramirez, they should trade me; I will not object. I don’t have any preferences. I could choose a team that offers me the best conditions or one in […]

Randolph Fired, Wang Out Until September

Sports in New York are in a frenzy this morning, waking up to news involving both of their baseball teams. Perhaps of more interest to Red Sox fans, Yankees ace Chien-Ming Wang‘s foot injury is worse than originally thought. While running the bases in the 13-0 victory over the Astros in Houston, Wang suffered a […]
