Tuesday Links: Red Sox could use a bullpen arm

With just four weeks to go until the July 31st trade deadline, the Red Sox find themselves in a strange position. After winning seven of their last 10 games, Boston currently sits six games back of the first place New York Yankees, despite still being in the basement of the American League East. Boston’s shortcomings […]

Thursday Links: Here we go again…

We’ve reached a point in the season that Red Sox Nation should be all to familiar with in recent years. The point where on-field play is an afterthought, and the fans and media have grown tired of complaining about the players, coaches, and front office. I’m talking, of course, about the point of the season […]

Wednesday Links: Brock Holt’s made history

It’s been a while since the Red Sox last had a player hit for the cycle. A long while. Before Brock Holt accomplished the feat during yesterday’s 9-4 win over the Atlanta Braves, John Valentin’s 1996 cycle was the last in Boston history. For the last 18 years, the cycle had been elusive to Red […]

Tuesday Links: Time to give Allen Craig another shot

For a while there, it looked like Mike Napoli was remembering how to be a consistent middle of the order hitter again. But much like the Red Sox’ 2015 season, the first baseman’s late May renaissance was just a fleeting glimpse of promising talent. From May 19th to the 28th, Napoli was hitting .371 and […]

Thursday Links: Rick Porcello has not come as advertised

Rick Porcello was coming off the best season of his career when the Red Sox acquired him from the Detroit Tigers in December of last year. With a less-than-stellar pitching market, Boston used Yoenis Cespedes — the spoils of the Jon Lester trade — to bring the young, but experienced, 25-year old into the fold. […]

Wednesday Links: Eduardo Rodriguez deals yet again

Eduardo Rodriguez hasn’t even been on the Red Sox 25-man roster for a full month, but so far he’s pitched like an ace. In three trips to the mound this season, the 22-year old has been the kind of shot in the arm that some fans thought was only obtainable via a trade for a […]

Tuesday Links: Red Sox offense thriving in June

Up to this point, the Red Sox 2015 season has fallen short of the enormous expectations that surrounded the team during the winter. After a 12-10 month of April and a 10-19 nose dive in May, Boston currently finds themselves pulling up the rear in the AL East standings. But as the calender has flipped […]

Thursday Links: Ben Cherington is not to blame for 2015

Sitting a 24-30 on the year, the Red Sox season obviously has not taken shape the way that we thought it would during the offseason. The Red Sox were among the winners of the winter, bolstering their offense while creating a pathwork starting rotation, following the destruction of the 2014 staff. When the dust settled […]

Wednesday Links: Clay Buchholz is the ace

Ever since the offseason, fans and media alike have wondered how the Red Sox staff would survive without a bona fide ace at the top of the staff. Subsequently, the calls for Boston to make a trade for a top tier veteran arm like Cole Hamels or Johnny Cueto have resonated throughout the start of […]

Tuesday Links: Rotation shake up in order

For a while there, the Red Sox starting rotation looked like it was finally figuring things out. In the weeks following the dismissal of pitching coach Juan Nieves, Boston starters amassed found themselves turning in quality starts, and near the top of the league in team ERA. Some credit the spike in performance to the […]

Thursday Links: Stopping clubhouse turmoil talk before it begins

The Red Sox aren’t playing good baseball right now. They’re 3 for their last 7, in last place in the American League East and just got swept by the lowly Minnesota Twins in three games. To add insult to injury, Boston is collectively hitting .233 with a .294 on-base percentage this moth; both marks grade […]

Wednesday Links: Red Sox offense continues to frustrate

There’s really no way to sugarcoat it, the Red Sox offense has been abysmal for the better part of the 2015 season. This fact was reaffirmed during Tuesday night’s loss against the Minnesota Twins in which the team managed to tally just one run against another league average pitcher. Entering the year, the notion around […]

Tuesday Links: Time to remove Joe Kelly from starting rotation?

When the Red Sox received Joe Kelly from the St. Louis Cardinals in July of last season, the 26-year old was at a crossroads in his career as a major leaguer. Over his two and a half year career in St. Louis, the right-hander spent nearly equal time between starting and relieving. Over 68 career […]
