Thursday Links: Stopping clubhouse turmoil talk before it begins

The Red Sox aren’t playing good baseball right now. They’re 3 for their last 7, in last place in the American League East and just got swept by the lowly Minnesota Twins in three games. To add insult to injury, Boston is collectively hitting .233 with a .294 on-base percentage this moth; both marks grade […]

Wednesday Links: Red Sox offense continues to frustrate

There’s really no way to sugarcoat it, the Red Sox offense has been abysmal for the better part of the 2015 season. This fact was reaffirmed during Tuesday night’s loss against the Minnesota Twins in which the team managed to tally just one run against another league average pitcher. Entering the year, the notion around […]

Tuesday Links: Time to remove Joe Kelly from starting rotation?

When the Red Sox received Joe Kelly from the St. Louis Cardinals in July of last season, the 26-year old was at a crossroads in his career as a major leaguer. Over his two and a half year career in St. Louis, the right-hander spent nearly equal time between starting and relieving. Over 68 career […]

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. Since gaining exposure with Boston, Vazquez rapidly became on of the team’s most intriguing young talents. Vazquez turned heads with his terrific defense, which included […]

Wednesday Links: The gang’s all here

With all heads accounted for, the Red Sox ran through their first full-squad workout of the spring on Wednesday. Between some light work in the cage, Red Sox slugger David Ortiz spent his first full day in Fort Myers making the rounds with the Boston media. Perhaps Big Papi’s most unique comments came after he […]

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 […]

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. While the cold might still be lingering in the northeast, only 66 short day separate Red Sox Nation from the baseball season, which alone should be enough to warm you up. […]

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 […]

Wednesday Links: Hello, baseball season

With the Super Bowl Championship secured and celebrated, New England can now turn their attention almost entirely toward the Red Sox. (Bruins and Celtics are still playing too, ya know?) For the second time in three seasons the Sox are trying to make the leap from worst to first, and have made such a change […]

Tuesday Links: Boston is America’s new Title Town

We are truly a spoiled fanbase, aren’t we? Since the turn of the century, Boston sports has been the epicenter of excellence and habitual success. This trend continued on Sunday as the New England Patriots downed the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in an instant Super Bowl classic. In turn, the Patriots added their fourth championship since […]

Tuesday Links: Any trade with the Nationals will come at a high cost for Red Sox

With Max Scherzer now in the fold, the Washington Nationals “super rotation” is something that should only be tampered with should an irresistible deal slide across GM Mike Rizzo’s desk. In adding the former Cy Young Award winner to an already formidable rotation, the Nationals were awarded with the luxury of having too many quality […]

Scherzer

Monday Links: Signing Max Scherzer still doesn’t make sense for Red Sox

On Monday’s edition of MLB Network’s morning show Hot Stove, FoxSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal predicted the the Red Sox would end up signing free agent starting pitcher Max Scherzer before the offseason is over. Of course predicting something isn’t at all relative to reporting something, so don’t take Rosenthal out of context here. But as a […]

Friday Links: A deal for Tyler Clippard would make sense for Sox

In an appearance on 93.7 WEEI on Thursday, Red Sox manager John Farrell admitted that the team is still on the hunt to add a strikeout throwing reliever before the offseason is out. This doesn’t come as a surprise at all, considering the Red Sox finished the 2014 season with a league average 21% strikeout […]

Tuesday Links: What cap will Pedro Martinez don on Cooperstown plaque?

As I’m writing this the 2015 Hall of Fame election results have yet to be announced, but thanks to ballot trackers we have a pretty good guess as to who will join baseball’s greats in Cooperstown. Among the 34 names on the ballot, most predict that former Red Sox ace Pedro Martinez will amass enough […]

Tuesday Links: Where does Allen Craig fit in Boston?

First baseman/outfielder Allen Craig is perhaps the most interesting trade chip that the Boston Red Sox have left on their current roster. While the 30-year old’s 2014 numbers don’t seem to give him much trade value, Craig’s overall career stats seem to warrant a mulligan. After coming to Boston in July of last season, Craig […]
