Red Sox Clinch Division, Miss Opportunity for Home Field Advantage

That’s not exactly how you draw up clinching the division. With the Boston Red Sox leading the New York Yankees 3-0 in the eighth inning, the Baltimore Orioles came back to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 and clinch the American League East division title for the Red Sox, win or lose against the Yankees. […]

Hanley’s Walk Off Moonshot

Thursday night’s match up against the New York Yankees was an important game for the Red Sox to win. Coming into Thursday only one game ahead of Baltimore, the Red Sox had some pressure on them. What started off as a slow night turned into one to remember. Heading into the bottom of the ninth […]

Will The Sox Win The AL East?

As September is nearing, playoffs is becoming a predominant topic in baseball. The powerhouse hitting Red Sox are now in a position where the postseason is not a guarantee. They have been bouncing in and out of first, second, and third place for a majority of the season. The Red Sox, Blue Jays and Orioles […]

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 […]

Steven Wright Cements Status as Red Sox Ace with Complete Game Win Over Yankees

Tim Wakefield on steroids. It is probably a poor turn of phrase given the stigma of performance-enhancing drugs and the recent spate of suspensions as Major League Baseball cracks down on PED violations. But how else to describe this start by Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright? Already putting up unfathomable numbers through his first five […]

Buch, Yeah! Buchholz Finally Delivers Quality Start in 5-2 Red Sox Win

If any phrase were to summarize Clay Buchholz so far this season, it would be “What the Buch??” Wednesday night’s start against the Chicago White Sox finally flipped the script, as Buchholz’s seven strong innings had Boston Red Sox fans saying “Buch, yeah!” in celebration of a 5-2 win over the best record in the […]

Christian Vazquez, Meet the New York Tabloids. Tabloids, the Red Sox Starting Catcher.

Wordlessly, my coworker walked up to my desk, sifted through the Monday newspaper tucked underneath his arm, and started tacking up the separated page to my cubicle wall. It was the back page of the New York Daily News the day after the Boston Red Sox completed a clean sweep of the New York Yankees, introducing Sunday […]

Red Sox-Yankees Weekend Series Preview

The Red Sox, fresh off of a five game win streak that should turn into six against the Braves tonight (4/28), are looking to bring that momentum into their first series against the New York Yankees this weekend. The Red Sox have been preying on weaker teams as of late, and seem to have a […]

The Yankees Lost, Ellsbury Got Benched, and I’m Still Giddy

It almost made this season entirely worth it. Another year out of the playoff race by August (and that’s optimistic), another last place finish, and one American League Wild Card game nearly undid all the futility of the 2015 season – and the Red Sox were already home hitting the links. Such is my hatred […]

Can the Red Sox Avoid Being the Victim of the Yankees 10,000th Win? Please?

Lord knows it’s been months since I’ve asked anything of the 2015 Boston Red Sox. Mired in last place and saddled with two free agent splashes that never made it out of the shallow end, what was there to ask? But with only a few games left, I do have one final request as a […]

Henry Owens Solid In Red Sox Debut

One of the few things Red Sox fans have left to enjoy about the 2015 season is the opportunity to glimpse the future of their team. They got such a look on Tuesday when Henry Owens made his major league debut ay Yankee Stadium. It was only one start, and it was against a team […]

(David) Price is Wrong for Red Sox

The 2015 season has highlighted the harsh reality of the Red Sox pitching staff: it lacks an Ace, or really any time of frontline starter. This is the need that Ben Cherington seriously needs to address in the immediate future, either at the trade deadline or in the offseason. There is absolutely no way the […]

So That’s Happening: Blue Jays Swap Reyes for Rockies’ Tulowitzki before Trade Deadline

Where to even start? I’d been awake for less than an hour when my phone told me that the Toronto Blue Jays had swung a trade for Troy Tulowitzki, sending Jose Reyes and a package of pitching prospects to the Colorado Rockies in exchange for the five-time All-Star shortstop. Good morning, AL East, indeed!

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 […]

A Piece of Advice for Swihart after his Red Sox Debut

There is nothing positive about losing the top two catchers on your depth chart. Christian Vazquez lost the 2015 season to Tommy John surgery, and his replacement as the starting catcher, Ryan Hanigan, will be out until at least the All-Star break. But if there’s a silver lining, it’s that Boston Red Sox fans get to see […]
