What can the Red Sox expect from Dustin Pedroia in 2015?

Of all the players Red Sox fans have had to worry about in recent seasons, Dustin Pedroia has been near the bottom of the list. The diminutive second baseman has long been one of the best players at his position in baseball, and except for an injury-plagued 2010 campaign, Pedroia has compiled at least four […]

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 […]

Tuesday Links: Circle of (baseball) life

Do you remember where you were on the night of November 12, 2010? No? Good, because unless a momentous occasion happened in your life, than it shouldn’t ring a bell. On that night, however, the Red Sox traded lefty relief pitcher Dustin Richardson to the then-Florida Marlins for fellow southpaw, Andrew Miller. The trade didn’t […]

Thursday Links: Red Sox lock up left hander Wade Miley

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 […]

Thursday Links: Red Sox right to wait for their ace

Max Scherzer is too much of a commitment. Cole Hamels will cost too many top prospects. James Shields wants an ace contract, but he’s a high mileage 33-year old. But the Red Sox need an ace! Granted an ace would be nice to plant atop the rotation, but it’s not something that Boston should bend […]

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 […]

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 […]

Wednesday Links: Filling the hole at third base

With the offseason now officially underway, it will be interesting to see when the Red Sox pull the trigger on their first move of the shopping season. Early speculation predicts Boston to be heavily involved in both the starting pitching market and third base front. Perhaps the most discussed target for the Sox in the […]

Tuesday Links: Homecoming for Han-Ram?

While free agents like Pablo Sandoval and Chase Headley are both logical fits for the Red Sox at third base, it’s important to not overlook a player like Hanley Ramirez. A shortstop by trade, Ramirez figures to slide over to third base in the near future due to his decreased range in the middle of […]

Monday Links: Advantage San Francisco

It’s been a battle so far this fall, but the San Francisco Giants just keep plugging along. After entering the postseason as the National League Wild Card winners, the Giants are blew past the Washington Nationals, en route to a five game NLCS victory against the St. Louis Cardinals. Now, the Giants hold a 3-2 […]

Monday Links: Royals rolling through playoffs

Without a doubt the most compelling storyline this postseason has been the utter dominance displayed by the Kansas City Royals. Currently up 2 games to none in the best of 7 American League Championship Series against the Baltimore Orioles, Kansas City’s fortune this October has come from all facets of the game. While the Royals […]
