In the coming weeks, we can expect to see the Red Sox rotation begin to take shape. So far this offseason, Boston’s front office has proven that they aren’t afraid to throw money around, and also are conscious of their numerous trade chips. Therefore, you can expect the team to keep their checkbook and roster […]
On Thanksgiving, let us give thanks to the free market, which Paul Hoynes abhors.
With the signings of Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval squared away, the Red Sox can now shift their focus to retooling the top of the starting rotation. As has been the case the entire offseason, Boston seems poised to bring back their former home grown starter turned staff ace, Jon Lester. Currently headlining the free […]
After agreeing to terms with the Red Sox over the weekend, Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez were introduced to Red Sox Nation on Tuesday. In the first of two separate press conferences, Ben Cherington introduced Sandoval, and presented him with a white, number 48, Red Sox home jersey. Sandoval then spoke of his decision to […]
What a difference a week makes. Seven days ago the Red Sox were reportedly contenders to sign both Pablo Sandoval and Jon Lester. Now, Boston has agreed to terms with the Panda and also signed Hanley Ramirez to play left field for good measure. (And, according to some, Lester isn’t far away from returning to […]
As the weekend was coming to a close on Sunday night, the Red Sox sent shock waves through Major League Baseball as news broke that the team was wrapping up a pair of deals for free agents Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez. Boston brought back their former prized prospect on a five year deal, worth […]
After extending an offer to Jon Lester, and hosting Pablo Sandoval earlier this week, all was quiet on Yawkey Way on Thursday. The team appears to be in holding pattern of both free agents while Lester visits other clubs, and Sandoval gauges his market. Yesterday we learned that the Toronto Blue Jays are a team […]
After spending 2 days in Boston, free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval took off from Logan Airport on Wednesday without a contract offer from the Red Sox. While a big name free agent leaving Boston without signing or receiving an offer is atypical of the current ownership group, the book isn’t closed on Sandoval in […]
The Red Sox long anticipated meeting with free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval has come and gone without any news of a deal. Sandoval, accompanied by his agent and his brother — acting co-agent — flew to Boston on Monday, and rendezvoused with the Sox brass on Tuesday afternoon and evening. The 28-year old’s maiden […]
The Blue Jays aren’t messing around. That much became clear when they signed free-agent catcher Russell Martin to a five-year, $82.5 million contract Monday, outbidding notable heavyweights in the Cubs and Dodgers in the process. The signing comes with its fair share of risks (as does any big-money contract, no matter the player). A year […]
Free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval landed in Boston on Monday night, ahead of his Tuesday meeting with the Boston Red Sox. It’s no secret that the 28-year old has been one of the Red Sox top free agent targets this offseason, and the fact that he’s in Boston speaks to how much the team […]
If I was a betting man, I’d say that we’re in for a very active week on the MLB hot stove. With the General Managers meetings now in the rear view mirror, teams can use the information they gathered last week to begin to put their offseason plans into action. For the Red Sox, their […]
My memories from the Red Sox 2004 postseason.
After being snubbed two seasons in a row, Mike Trout was finally named American League Most Valuable Player for the 2014 campaign. The 22-year old New Jersey native posted a .287/.377/.561 slash and collected 111 RBI and 36 home runs in 157 games for the Anaheim Angels last season. Looking at Trout’s past performances, it’s […]
Wednesday marked the final day of the General Managers meetings in Arizona. While the Red Sox didn’t make any trades or free agent signings, the Sox brass did do a lot of tire-kicking. Over the course of the three day meeting, we heard Boston connected to big names like Pablo Sandoval, and smaller players like […]
