Mike Napoli’s departure from the Red Sox wasn’t something that blind-sided fans in Boston, but trying to pin-point exactly who would succeed the 33-year old was something of an mind bender for fans and media alike Following the trade that sent Napoli back to Texas in exchange for a player to be named later, the […]
By now you know that Red Sox’ super utility man, Brock Holt, will be Boston’s lone representative at tonight’s All Star game.

Since Holt is a known jack-of-all trades, the question for […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.

As New England prepares to get whacked with snow this week, reading about baseball should serve as a sweet release from the bitter cold….

The bullpen will probably be the last area of the roster that Red Sox General Manager Ben Cherington adds to this offseason. The team currently employes five arms that one can consider shoe-in’s for the 2015 relief core, which leave two more spots up for grabs. The third year GM has acknowledged the teams plethora […]
Amid all the craziness that has ensued this offseason, it’s pretty remarkable that the New York Yankees have been fairly quiet thus far. The typically free spending front office lead by Brian Cashman kept themselves out of the market for high price free agent talent like Jon Lester and Hanley Ramirez, despite the teams need […]
The San Fransisco Giants took a one game series advantage on Tuesday, after they beat the St. Louis Cardinals in unorthodox fashion. Starters John Lackey and Tim Hudson battled for their respective clubs for 6 innings, and left the game after allowing 4 runs. The Giants jumped out to a first inning 4 run advantage, […]
Despite a crowded outfield picture and the need to add via trade this offseason, the Red Sox should look to keep Mookie Betts at all costs.
It didn’t take long for the Red Sox to build a substantial lead against the Yankees on Wednesday evening. In the first of a three game series, Boston tallied two first inning runs off Yankees starter Shane Greene. After Mookie Betts singled and David Ortiz reached via a walk, Yoenis Cespedes drilled an RBI double […]
A conversation with Carlos Asuaje on the amateur draft, his strong season, and life in the minor leagues.
If there’s one thing to take away from this disastrous 2014 Red Sox season, it’s not the fact that Clay Buchholz is still incredibly inconsistent. It’s not that age is not slowing down David Ortiz. It’s that Brock Holt is having a breakout season, and has become the ultimate utility man while still managing to […]
