The Red Sox Are the Hottest Team in Baseball

September has been an incredible month for the Red Sox. In just this month only, David Ortiz passed Mickey Mantle on the all time home run list, Rick Porcello reached 20 wins (21st win Monday), Hanley Ramirez was named AL Co-Player of the week on Monday, and Boston now sits in a comfortable four game […]

Porcello Becomes First 20 Win Pitcher This Season

With Friday night’s 13-3 blowout win against the Blue Jays, Boston’s ace Rick Porcello picks up his 20th win of the season, the first starting pitcher to do so this year. Porcello has probably been the quietest winning pitcher in all of baseball. After Friday night’s game Rick holds a 20-3 record. Not only is […]

Sox Cruise to 6th straight Win

After last night’s 8-1 win over the Orioles, the Red Sox seem to be on fire. This was their 6th straight win and they have now moved into the top spot in the wildcard. They are now only one game behind Toronto for first place in the division. One of the many reasons the Sox […]

No Major Moves at the Trade Deadline

The Sox had a relatively quiet trade deadline today as they only acquired one player in a one for one trade. The Sox acquired left handed reliever Fernando Abad from the Minnesota Twins in exchange for minor league lefty Pat Light. Abad will help the Sox’s struggling bullpen as left handed hitters have only a […]

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 […]
