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, […]
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 […]
With Opening Day right around the corner, the Red Sox starting staff is still shaking off the winter rust this spring: Clay Buchholz: 3 GS, 10 innings pitched, 1.80 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 12 K, 2 BB Rick Porcello: 3 GS, 10 innings pitched, 2.70 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 8 K, 3 BB Wade Miley: 2 G, […]
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. The Red Sox can officially put their 2014 last place finish behind them, and rinse the bad taste out of their mouths on Tuesday with their annual split-squad […]
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. While no baseball action outside of bullpen sessions and light catches will take place for another few weeks, […]
Brett Cowett goes into detail about how good – or bad – grounders can be for the Sox.
With little over a week until the official report date for pitchers and catchers to Fort Myers, the Red Sox have already seen a plethora of players make the early trip down. Red Sox newcomers Justin Masterson, Rick Porcello, and Anthony Varvaro have all been spotted at the Red Sox complex. Fellow hurlers Clay Buchholz, […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Three reasons why the Red Sox should be in contention again next season.
The 2014 MLB postseason kicked off with a bang on Tuesday night, as the Oakland Athletics and Kansas City Royals battled for 12 innings in the win or go home American League Wild Card game. On paper, the winner take all contest appeared to favor pitching, as both teams were set to send their ace […]
