Monday Links: After two starts, jurry remains out on Clay Buchholz

For good reason, most Red Sox fans weren’t comfortable with the idea of Clay Buchholz heading the starting rotation in 2015. Over the course of his 9 year career, the right-hander has combated his flashes of greatness with injuries and under performance. Even when he was in the midst of his best season in 2013, […]

Friday Links: Vazquez loss is big, but not a back braker

The Red Sox worst fears were realized this week when it was confirmed that young catcher Christian Vazquez would require Tommy John surgery, and subsequently miss the entire 2015 season.

Monday Links: Chrisitan Vazquez’s promising rookie season derailed

Whether it’s a big budget team or a small budget team, it’s the hope of every club to make it through spring training with a fully healthy roster to start the season. The Red Sox, however, were unable to even make it to April before suffering the biggest blow of the season thus far. Young […]

The Red Sox are on television today. Self proclaimed 2015 Cy Young winner Joe Kelly is on the mound opposite of Tommy John comeback kid and Mets ace, Matt Harvey.

Tempering Betts-pectations.

What’s to be expected out of Mookie Betts? If you’re an avid Baseball Prospectus-er, like I am, you have probably seen their projections for Betts and the rest of the Boston Red Sox in 2015. Surprisingly, or perhaps not, PECOTA has Betts projected to slash .285/.358/.415 in 2015, across just shy of 300 plate appearances […]

Tuesday Links: Yoan Moncada an expensive, but important, sign for Boston

The Red Sox clearly weren’t suffering a weekend hangover, as they agreed to a $31.5 million deal with Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada, early Monday morning. On top of the money owed to the 19-year old, Boston will need to pay an additional $31.5 million in international tax penalties. The Red Sox certainly weren’t alone in […]

Wednesday marked the official report date for pitchers and catchers to check in at their respective spring training camps.

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 […]
