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 […]

Buchholz Struggles, Bats Fail Red Sox In Texas Finale

The Red Sox desperately needed a solid start from Clay Buchholz on Sunday; they did not get one. Sunday’s 6-2 loss can be attributed to a lack of timely hitting backed up by completely subpar pitching. It might be easy to say that it’s not surprising that Buchholz struggled against a Rangers team with the […]

Red Sox Pitching Staff: Help Wanted

The biggest flaw with the Boston Red Sox team at this point in the season has been the pitching staff, and help is needed. The heralded ace David Price has been good this season with a 7-3 record and 91 strikeouts, but his 4.63 ERA leaves plenty of room for improvement. Then there is Steven Wright, who […]

Sox Split Series With Orioles; Look Onwards to Toronto

In a four game set with the Orioles, the Red Sox never scored more than ten runs in a game. This is surprising, since the sheer amount of firepower displayed by the Red Sox may have led one to believe that they put up 15 runs per game. Bogaerts did run his hit streak to […]

Red Sox Put .500 Firmly In Rearview Mirror; Look to Battle Astros

Three warm nights in early May translated to a romping at Fenway Park for the upstart Red Sox, who outscored the Oakland Athletics 40-15 over three games en route to a sweep. This is a team that is fun to watch on most nights, and if they stay healthy, will be able to challenge the […]

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 […]

A Preview of the Suddenly High-Profile Red Sox and White Sox’s Upcoming Series

The Red Sox are flying into Chicago to take on the high-powered White Sox, who boast an 18-8 record, and a 3 game lead in the AL Central. Both teams have won eight of their last ten, and are both coming off of a much-needed day of rest. The White Sox last week, split a […]

Red Sox Historically Bad on the Road, All But Out of AL East Hunt

Boston has been bruised, battered, and beaten in every facet of the game on their tough 7-game swing through Los Angeles and Houston. The Sox dropped four straight to the Angels in a sweep, something that has never happened on the Angels turf in the 55-year history of the series between the two teams. In […]

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 […]

Knuckleballer Steven Wright Roughed Up in First Start: What’s Next?

Steven Wright lasted only one inning against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park while giving up threes runs and walking two and hitting one in his first start in the big leagues. He struggled keeping control of his knuckleball to the tune of four passed balls by catcher Ryan Lavarnway. The ball was dancing […]
