Are The Sox Hitting Their Stride?

The Boston Red Sox have won 9 of their last 12 games.  With 5 of those wins coming on the road against some of the American league’s best, Cleveland, Baltimore, and Detroit.  This, so far successful road trip is no fluke.  From pitching, to hitting, to defense this Red Sox team is hot right now. […]

Pedey puts the team on his back; Sox salvage a split in Los Angeles

Heading into the month of August, it appeared as though the Sox had lost their swagger. They took a beating from the surging Tigers, and they were on the verge of being stomped out by the under-performing, last place Angels. All day long, the offense was stagnant to say the least. Steven Wright, who has […]

Two Red Sox Players Considered Serious MVP Candidates

As the baseball season is at the halfway point we start examining players for baseball’s most prestigious award, the Most Valuable Player. Two Red Sox players are considered to be serious contenders in this year’s insanely competitive AL MVP race. Those two players are Xander Bogaerts and David Ortiz. However there are many other great players to […]

Sox Perform Well at ASG, Back in Action Tonight in NYC

All Star Weekend was memorable for more than just the 61 home runs that Giancarlo Stanton belted during the Home Run Derby. This game held special meaning for David Ortiz, the AL DH. In his final season, and final all star game, Ortiz was the starter for the AL at DH. While Ortiz was certainly […]

Sox At The Break

The Red Sox are 49-38 at the all-star break, not bad since the last 2 seasons they were out of the playoff hunt at this time.  There are obviously places this team needs to improve before they can be legit contenders this season.  However all of us Sox fans should be happy with our team […]

Red Sox Could Start Four Players at MLB All-Star Game

Last year, the lone representative from the Boston Red Sox at the All-Star Game was Brock Holt. Holt saw little playing time, and the Red Sox were deservedly under-represented. This year however, the Sox seem primed to send four position players to San Diego to take on the NL. This is even more exciting to […]

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 […]

Orioles,Sox preview

The Baltimore Orioles and The Boston Red Sox are two of the best teams in the American League.  They both have a record of 36-26, and both have a high-powered offense.  These two teams played a few weeks ago and split a 4 game series.  If you remember that series the Red Sox bullpen imploded, […]

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, […]

Xander Is Jeter Like

No, I’m not saying Xander Bogaerts is Derek Jeter, or is going to be Derek Jeter.  However, the Red Sox finally have a consistent shortstop, something they haven’t had since Nomar.   When Nomar left he left a big hole at shortstop, and it has been a revolving door since then.  Orlando Cabrera, Edgar Renteria, Alex […]

Joltin’ Jackie? Bradley Halfway to DiMaggio’s 56-Game Hitting Streak

First pitch swinging – now that’s the way to get the pressure of a hitting streak out of the way. That’s how Jackie Bradley Jr. did it Tuesday night, anyway, taking the first pitch he saw off the Green Monster for a second inning double that extended his hitting streak to 28 games. He would […]

Mookie Has Muscles

Mookie Betts can absolutely rake …. in other news water is wet and baseballs are round. It was clear that Betts is a difference maker after he was a 4.8-win player in his rookie season, where he hit .291/.341/.479 with 10 DRS in centerfield. So putting him atop the Red Sox lineup again in 2016 […]

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 […]

Three Red Sox Strengths

Now that the offseason is officially upon us a month sooner than most fans would like, the time has come to take stock of the Red Sox organization, see just where they stand, and try to figure out how they will proceed going into and through the offseason. Since there is always a give/take, ying/yang, […]

Video: Red Sox Honor David Ortiz, Newest Member of the 500 HR Club

Unless you’re into breathlessly watching to see if the Boston Red Sox can avoid a third last place finish in four years, there isn’t much left worth tuning in for as the team plays out the string on this miserable 2015 season. Thankfully, David Ortiz has yet again provided a reason to watch, even though […]
