Wednesday Links: Dombrowski in, Cherington out, GM ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

What seemed like a normal, mid-August night at Fenway Park was quickly turned on its head on Wednesday. As the Red Sox were finishing up a tidy 9-1 win over the Cleveland Indians, FOX Sport’s Ken Rosenthal dropped two twitter bombs of epic proportions: Dombrowski, who was let go from his duties as General Manager […]

Thursday Links: What are the Red Sox doing to Jackie Bradley?

In case you forgot, Jackie Bradley Jr. is still occupying a spot on the Red Sox 25-man roster. Since being recalled from triple-A Pawtucket on May 10th, the center fielder has appeared in 6 games, and has spent the bulk of his 2 week stay on the bench. Still at the relatively young age of […]

Monday Links: Back and at ’em

The Red Sox continued their spring training schedule on Monday with a meeting against the St. Louis Cardinals. Newly acquired starter Wade Miley toed the rubber for his first official outing of the spring, and tossed 3 innings while allowing a hit a frame, walking 2 and striking out 2. Miley, who has become a […]

Depth Will Be an Asset for the Red Sox in 2015

Consistency isn’t a word I would use to describe the Red Sox over the past few years, and although the club is but one season removed from a World Series title, the Red Sox enter 2015 with more to prove than that might normally suggest. A successful October is always worth cherishing, but when it […]

Tuesday Links: Pablo Sandoval is fat and that’s okay

Pablo Sandoval wasn’t doing his public image any good when he decided to arrive at JetBlue Park on Fat Tuesday, of all days. And after taking the field in his new Red Sox garb, the pictures that ensued breed discussion of the 28-year old’s weight — which predictably included fat jokes. Now, fat jokes can […]

Friday Links: Baseball things are happening

The boys of summer are starting to head down to Fort Myers, and actual baseball things are happening for the first time since October.

Thursday Links: Red Sox lock up left hander Wade Miley

With the offseason just about to wrap up, the Boston Red Sox finished reconfiguring their roster for the 2015 season on Thursday afternoon.

Tuesday Links: Red Sox have already guided Daniel Nava to the left side

Yesterday, Rob Bradford of WEEI reported that Daniel Nava is thinking about abandoning switch hitting this season, and focusing exclusively on batting from the left-hand side. This isn’t a bad for Nava, who holds a career .209 batting average from the right-hand side and a .293 average from the left, but it’s not exactly a […]

Thursday Links: Clearing the outfield logjam

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: Could Jon Lester be headed back to Boston?

With the Rookie of the Year Awards announced on Monday, Major League Baseball continued to hand out the offseason hardware by announcing the Manager of the Year awards on Tuesday.

Tuesday Links: Homecoming for Han-Ram?

While free agents like Pablo Sandoval and Chase Headley are both logical fits for the Red Sox at third base, it’s important to not overlook a player like Hanley Ramirez. A shortstop by trade, Ramirez figures to slide over to third base in the near future due to his decreased range in the middle of […]
