Sox Take Two From SF Giants

Over the past two nights, the Red Sox defeated the San Francisco Giants twice, they moved into sole possession of first place in the AL East, and they provided us with an extremely entertaining eighteen innings of baseball. June is firmly in the rearview mirror for the suddenly wicked hot Boston Red Sox, and for […]

Is Porcello An All Star Snub?

I do think that Rick Porcello could have been on this year’s American League all-star team.  However the guys that beat him out are no slouches, they are all mostly ace’s for their respective teams, except of course for Stephen Wright. You can make the case that Porcello has been the Red Sox best pitcher […]

Which Sox Players Will Make The All-Star Game?

David Ortiz, Xander Bogaerts, and Jackie Bradley Jr. are among the leaders in the AL all star voting as of Tuesday. Jackie sits comfortably in the number three spot (over 937,000 votes) right behind Mike Trout and Lorenzo Cain. He is expected to be a starter in the All-Star game. Meanwhile Ortiz and Bogaerts both […]

Red Sox To Battle Giants In Two Game Mini-Series

The Red Sox look to rebound from a tough series against the Blue Jays when they face-off against the San Francisco Giants for a quick two game series at AT&T Park. The Sox, (33-24, T-1st in A.L East), will head back to the Bay Area for the first time since 2013, and will go up against a loaded Giants squad, (35-24, […]

Red Sox Take Series Against Colorado; 7 Game Road Trip Starts Today

Last night, the Red Sox had a chance to move to 30 wins, and Jackie Bradley had a chance to extend his hitting streak to 30 games. Neither happened, and yet, the Red Sox offense still managed to score twenty runs in a series in which they took two out of three from the Colorado […]

Sox Lose Series in KC; Streaking Cleveland Comes to Boston

Unfortunately, the Red Sox cannot play the Oakland Athletics for 162 games. Boston got a reality check when it ran into a sputtering Kansas City team, posting only eleven runs over three games. Jackie Bradley Junior extended his hitting streak to 24 games with a solo home run during the second game of a day/night […]

Red Sox Prepared to Take on A’s

After the Red Sox managed to salvage the final game in New York, the second place team will be looking to rebound by playing the Oakland A’s. The Athletics are 14-18, and are coming off two straight losses in Baltimore. The Sox will open the home stand with Clay Buchholz (1-3, 5.71) who will be […]

No Papi, No Problem: Porcello, Bradley Lead Red Sox to 1-0 Win Over Braves

No Papi? No problem. The Boston Red Sox, after escaping a 12-inning Sunday night affair against the Houston Astros with a win, didn’t land in Atlanta until 5:30 a.m. on Monday morning. As a result, Red Sox manager John Farrell decided to sit David Ortiz in their first interleague game and also give first baseman Hanley […]

Sox Trade Miley To Mariners, Solidify Bullpen For Next Season

Dave Dombrowski and the Red Sox have been active this off season with the huge free agent move to land a dominant ace starter in David Price, possibly the games best closer in Craig Kimbrel, and outfielder Chris Young. Boston’s latest action came in the form of a trade with the Seattle Mariners. The Sox […]

Greinke Not a Fit for Red Sox

We’ve already been over how the Red Sox need starting pitching, particularly a top-end starter. National League Cy Young contender Zack Greinke is one of the most readily available options on the free agent market, and some have suggested that he should be the next great Red Sox Ace. There have also been reports that […]

Three Red Sox Needs

Earlier in the week we looked at some of the Red Sox’ current organizational strengths heading into the offseason, and now we are taking a look at some needs the team will be working to improve on this winter. Most of them are pretty obvious and involve pitching, but let’s get into it. Below are […]

The Amazing Rich Hill

Friday night’s 7-0 win over the Orioles featured a dominant performance from a Red Sox starting pitcher, the likes of which the team is unaccustomed to in 2015. Rich Hill was dealing at Fenway Park, tossing a two-hit shutout with a walk and ten strikeouts. Hill seemed nowhere near the Red Sox radar even a […]

Miracles Do Happen! Porcello, Tazawa Outduel Sale, White Sox in Red Sox Shutout

Did anyone in Boston see Rick Porcello walk across the Charles River recently? Because if Wednesday’s start against the Chicago White Sox was any indication, something mildly miraculous is going on with the embattled righthander. Going up against Chris Sale and his now MLB-leading 229 strikeouts, Porcello went pitch for pitch with the White Sox […]

Joe Kelly at the End of the Leash

Enough is enough. The madness needs to stop. It is pretty clear that the Red Sox have virtually no chance at all to play meaningful games for the rest of the 2015 season, and it is also clear that the pitching staff is the rough equivalent of a high school varsity squad (no offense to […]

Red Sox Host Yankees for Crucial Series at Fenway

The surging Red Sox welcome to town the AL East leading New York Yankees this weekend for a 3-game set at Fenway. The Sox are 8-2 in their last ten games while the Yankees have been 5-5 in that same span. Boston is now just 5.5 games back of the division lead but still with […]
