Wednesday Links: Red Sox starters finding form under Carl Willis

Juan Nieves was widely considered the Red Sox scapegoat after the team relived him of pitching coach duties on May 7th. Under the watch of the third year coach, the Red Sox starters began the year as the leagues bottom feeders in almost every statistical category. Still, the blame for the team’s slow start was […]

Monday Links: Sox starters coming around, still need improvement

Don’t look now, but the Red Sox are no longer dead last in the MLB in combined starting pitching ERA. Thanks to a recent string of quality starts by Boston’s hurlers, the team seems like they are finally getting the results they planned on when rebuilding the rotation this past winter. Over the past two […]

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, […]

While the snow is still covering the ground in Boston, just three days separate us from the start of the Red Sox first game of the spring.

Tuesday Links: Pitchers and catcher report to The Fort

Wednesday marked the official report date for pitchers and catchers to check in at their respective spring training camps. The Red Sox, however, already had most of their roster accounted for well before the mandatory arrival time.

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. The team capped off their productive winter by locking up starting pitcher Wade Miley on a 3 year, $19.5 million deal. The 27-year old Miley was the only arbitration eligible player that […]

How do the projection systems view the 2015 Red Sox?

Given all the snow currently blanketing the northeast, Red Sox fans could be forgiven for believing that baseball season remains far off in the distant future. But those hopeful first days of spring training are moving ever closer, with pitchers and catchers scheduled to arrive in Fort Myers in less than a month to begin […]

Wednesday Links: Not talking about DeflateGate

I’m one of the few people that believes that the Red Sox will be just fine without adding an ace before the season starts. Call it drinking the John Henry Kool-aid if you want, but when I look around the division, I see just about every team in the same position as the Red Sox […]

Dumpster Diving

That title is pretty poor, but it’s better than the swill I was considering, like Pab-no Sandoval, or even No-le Hamels. Obviously, those didnt make the cut so this article must be going in another direction. The Red Sox have almost completely remade their roster in the span of about a month, including a completely […]

Wednesday Links: Sox shift focus to starting rotation

With the signings of Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval squared away, the Red Sox can now shift their focus to retooling the top of the starting rotation. As has been the case the entire offseason, Boston seems poised to bring back their former home grown starter turned staff ace, Jon Lester. Currently headlining the free […]

Thursday Links: Finding an ace

Outside of Boston’s need for an upgrade at third base, the team must upgrade their starting rotation as well. After gutting their entire rotation at the trade deadline last season, Boston now has gaping holes with no obvious fit in mind. The good news is that the Red Sox have a ton of avenues to […]
