Dumpster Diving

That title is pretty poor, but it’s better than the swill I was considering, like Pab-no Sandoval, or even No-le Hamels. Obviously, those didnt make the cut so this article must be going in another direction. The Red Sox have almost completely remade their roster in the span of about a month, including a completely […]

Friday Links: Checking in on AL East rivals; Toronto Blue Jays edition

By now I imagine that we’re all pretty well versed in acquisitions that the Boston Red Sox have made so far this offseason, but they’re not the only team that has been busy in the American League East.

Before the first pitch is thrown at JetBlue Park in March of 2015, the Boston Red Sox will need to figure out how their outfield will align. While Boston’s image for next year became clearer after last weeks Yoenis Cespedes-for-Rick Porcello swap, the team still needs to trim the fat in the outfield. By all […]

Wednesday Links: For Masterson, pitch selection still a work in progress

There’s a common theme shared by the trio of arms that the Red Sox acquired over a week ago, and it could be Boston’s key to success in the 2015 season. Over the past few years, Rick Porcello, Wade Miley, and Justin Masterson have built up a reputation as ground ball pitchers. The latter of […]

Imagining a Rick Porcello Extension

The Red Sox didn’t sign Jon Lester at the Winter Meetings last week, but they did come away with plenty of starting pitching help. Perhaps the most notable of Boston’s additions is right-hander Rick Porcello, who the club landed from the Tigers after surrendering a package of Yoenis Cespedes, Alex Wilson and prospect Gabe Speier.

Tuesday Links: Where does Allen Craig fit in Boston?

First baseman/outfielder Allen Craig is perhaps the most interesting trade chip that the Boston Red Sox have left on their current roster. While the 30-year old’s 2014 numbers don’t seem to give him much trade value, Craig’s overall career stats seem to warrant a mulligan. After coming to Boston in July of last season, Craig […]

Monday Links: Adding an ace isn’t all that’s left for Red Sox to do

Now that the dust has settled on the flurry of moves that the Red Sox made last week, it’s safe to evaluate what still remains for the team going forward.

Friday Links: Is there an ace in the cards for Red Sox?

With the additions of Rick Porcello, Justin Masterson and Wade Miley, the Red Sox undoubtedly solidified the middle and back end of their rotation, but Boston is still in need of an ace.

On Wednesday evening, the Red Sox […]

Wednesday Links: Lester chooses Chicago, Sox turn to fallback options

The Red Sox were in it until the bitter end, but free agent starter Jon Lester ultimately decided to join the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday morning.
