Monday Links: Trade Deadline Week!

Despite being dead and buried by the trade deadline last season, the Red Sox were still one of the most active teams on the trade market. With impending free agents and expiring contracts, like those of Jon Lester and John Lackey, Boston collected a cornucopia of interesting veteran players and prospects. With 4 moves, the […]

Wednesday Links: Brock Holt’s made history

It’s been a while since the Red Sox last had a player hit for the cycle. A long while. Before Brock Holt accomplished the feat during yesterday’s 9-4 win over the Atlanta Braves, John Valentin’s 1996 cycle was the last in Boston history. For the last 18 years, the cycle had been elusive to Red […]

Tuesday Links: Red Sox offense thriving in June

Up to this point, the Red Sox 2015 season has fallen short of the enormous expectations that surrounded the team during the winter. After a 12-10 month of April and a 10-19 nose dive in May, Boston currently finds themselves pulling up the rear in the AL East standings. But as the calender has flipped […]

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: 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, […]

Monday Links: Sox flex muscle offensive muscle on Opening Day

The day that Red Sox Nation waited all winter for finally came on Monday, as the Boston opened the 2015 season on the road against the Philadelphia Phillies. The Red Sox wasted no time getting to work on Phillies starter Cole Hamels, and launched four solo home runs over the first five innings. Red Sox […]

Monday Links: Back and at ’em

The Red Sox continued their spring training schedule on Monday with a meeting against the St. Louis Cardinals. Newly acquired starter Wade Miley toed the rubber for his first official outing of the spring, and tossed 3 innings while allowing a hit a frame, walking 2 and striking out 2. Miley, who has become a […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
