Rule 5 Draft preview

The season is (mercifully) nearly over. There are some of us who, instead of being tormented by Boston’s poor play, took solace in the relatively decent play of the Red Sox’ minor league affiliates. The minor league season has been over for a while now, and we have gotten a taste of a few of […]

Red Sox Retrospective

The Red Sox scored 11 runs in back to back games this week, which considering how things have gone this season is pretty impressive. It’s even more impressive when one considers that they achieved the feat with 7 rookies in the lineup on both nights. The Red Sox hadn’t had a starting lineup with seven […]

Friday Links: The kids are alright

While most of the baseball world tuned in to Derek Jeter’s historic final game at Yankees Stadium, the Red Sox were busy routing the Tampa Bay Rays for the second straight night. Similar to Anthony Ranaudo on Wednesday, Allen Webster ended his season on a high note by holding the Rays to just one run […]

Thursday Links: Rookies help rout Rays

While no Red Sox rookie has truly captured a rotation spot on next years team, Anthony Ranaudo left a good final impression in his last start of the 2014 season.

What can Joe Kelly give the Red Sox in 2015?

Joe Kelly has been a steady starter down the stretch, but the Red Sox want him to throw more breaking balls. Could a change in pitch usage aid Kelly in 2015? Joe Kelly is one of the more unheralded players the Red Sox added before the trade deadline, and his importance to the club’s 2015 […]

Wednesday Links: Futures

On a clear and chilly September night in Boston, the Red Sox and Rays began their final series of the 2014 season. Starters Clay Buchholz and Alex Cobb held the line for their respective clubs for most of the game, with both starters pitching into the 7th inning.

Tuesday Links: Only six more games as MLB champions

The Red Sox will return home on Tuesday night and host their second to last homestand of the 2014 season. While both teams are well out of contention, Tuesday’s match-up of Alex Cobb vs. Clay Buchholz appears to be an interesting battle on paper.

Jackie “Brady” Jr.

We’re all well aware of JBJ’s prodigious struggles over the past two seasons.  It’s been frustrating, painful, and just plain sad to see one of the Sox’ former top prospects look so completely lost at the plate.  I don’t want to discount what he’s done in the field, because it has been immensely valuable, and […]

Friday Links: Steel City Sweep

After losing the first two games of the series, the Red Sox tried to staved off a sweep on Thursday night in Pittsburgh. Red Sox starter Brandon Workman quickly found himself down a run, after he walked Ike Davis with the bases loaded and forced in a run. An inning later, the Red Sox put […]
