Offseason Script Finally Goes as Planned in Opening Day Win for Price, Red Sox

So far, so good. For once, or for one day, the Boston Red Sox saw the offseason script  carried out to perfection as they opened the 2016 season with a 6-2 win over the Cleveland Indians. Making their Red Sox debuts, David Price struck out 10 over six innings and newly acquired closer Craig Kimbrel […]

Opening Day is Here (Kind of) for the 2016 Red Sox

Drama has swirled around the Boston Red Sox since the end of the 2015 regular season after finishing 78-84 and placing dead last in the American League East. The front office decided that enough is enough, so they made moves to shake up the roster with the goal of benefitting the Red Sox immediately. After trading […]

Did the Red Sox Burn Out Their Clutch?

Anticlimactic Opener I understand that it’s only 7 games into the season, but something is already missing. Where’s the magic? After an ending like last year, how could this season for the Red Sox start off so slow? First off, the Sox lost their season opener to the Baltimore Orioles, but it was a well-pitched […]

Shane Victorino was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring this morning, bringing Jackie Bradley, Jr. back up to the major league team for the Red Sox season opener against the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.

Red Sox Pick Up First Win, Beat Yankees 9-6 At Fenway

The Red Sox rolled into town off to their worst start (0-6) since 1996, and had to face the arch-rival New York Yankees to open the season at Fenway Park on Opening Day.

Opening Day ’10: The Beginning of True Love or Harbinger of a Doomed Romance?

It ended like my most of my relationships—in a meltdown. Things were going along a little rough, but neither of us predicted the catastrophic climax that would cause our break up, though in hindsight, we should have. Maybe we were overly confident—the two of us had faced much bigger problems, we got through them all […]

Red Sox 25-Man Roster, Highlander Version

There can be only one! So said Christopher Lambert playing Connor MacLeod in the 1986 cult classic “Highlander,” and so say I playing the role of Red Sox 25-man roster prognosticator. And by “one,” naturally I mean “two,” as it appears there are only two spots up for grabs in Fort Myers this year. You’ll […]

Red Sox Beat Rays 5-3 on Opening Day

Josh Beckett (1-0) was dominant against the Rays on Opening Day, going seven strong innings with one run and 10 strikeouts. After a shaky eighth inning with Hideki Okajima and Justin Masterson, Jonathan Papelbon came on in the ninth and slammed the door shut with a perfect ninth inning for the save. James Shields was […]

Red Sox Opening Day Today at 4:05

Weather-permitting, the Red Sox and Rays will square off for Opening Day at Fenway Park Tuesday afternoon at 4:05. It’s the first MLB Opening Day at Fenway since 2002.

Red Sox Opening Day … Moved to Tomorrow

Update: Looks like we will have to wait a bit longer for the season to officially start. Today’s game has been postponed to tomorrow at 4:05PM. The long and painful wait after losing Game 7 of the 2008 ALCS is over, as the Red Sox are now set for their first MLB Opening Day game at Fenway […]

Seal to Sing National Anthem on Opening Day

Grammy Award winner Seal will sing the national anthem at the Boston Red Sox season opener. The Red Sox take on the AL champion Tampa Bay Rays on Monday at Fenway Park. According to the AP, Seal is in town that day as part of his North American tour in support of his latest album […]
