If the Yankees needed a wild pitch in the 9th inning to salvage a single game, I can live with that. New York was simply out-hit the whole series.
- The Red Sox pulled no punches going into New York. For four straight games, the Sox became the bombers in the Bronx against the Yankees. (Despite loss, Red Sox impress in New York)
- The offense was unreal. The bats just couldn’t help but destroy any baseball thrown in the general vicinity of the strike zone. It was ridiculous, to say the least. (Sox bats approach historic levels)
- However, not all the news is good. Jacoby Ellsbury has a small fracture in his foot, and he’ll be out for a couple weeks. Deep breaths. It’s okay. (Jacoby Ellsbury has compression fracture)
- Remember when we were clamoring for a third baseman? Thanks to his improvements, Will Middlebrooks has assured us that the hot corner is in good hands. (Altered approach has led to big results for Middlebrooks)
- It’s about time to look into the future. The playoffs are coming. And the debate rages: how are the Red Sox planning out their rotations? (Blueprint For ‘Deep, Deep, Deep October’)
- Here’s a statistical way to look at who the Red Sox should drop. Depth is great in the regular season, but the postseason is another thing entirely. (Red Sox Face Tough Decisions With Starting Rotation)
- It’s happening, guys. He’s finally back. Clay Buchholz will take the mound on Tuesday for the first time since June 8th. (Buchholz ready to rejoin Red Sox rotation Tuesday)
Watch this. Then watch again. Now once more.
