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.

Monday Links: Fun spring training game, too bad we can’t watch it

The Red Sox are on television today. Self proclaimed 2015 Cy Young winner Joe Kelly is on the mound opposite of Tommy John comeback kid and Mets ace, Matt Harvey. Boston’s roster is touting just about all of their starters, and the Mets will start their own slew of big time names. Yet, no camera […]

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 […]

Tempering Betts-pectations.

What’s to be expected out of Mookie Betts? If you’re an avid Baseball Prospectus-er, like I am, you have probably seen their projections for Betts and the rest of the Boston Red Sox in 2015. Surprisingly, or perhaps not, PECOTA has Betts projected to slash .285/.358/.415 in 2015, across just shy of 300 plate appearances […]

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 […]

Thursday Links: Hamels wants out of Philly, Sox ear’s perk up

Another uneventful day on at Fort Myers has come and gone… The writing was already on the wall, Phillies ace Cole Hamels just read it aloud. The veteran southpaw acknowledged the uphill climb that faces Philadelphia this season, and didn’t shy away from a possible trade. Hamels, who’s current no trade clause features the Red […]

Friday Links: Truck day is symbolic, but very strange

Imagine standing outside a random person’s house and watching them load all of their stuff into a U-Haul. Crazy, right? Now imagine standing outside Fenway Park — among piles of snow, and freezing temps — and watching a random person load a U-Haul on steroids. Boom, Red Sox Truck Day. I used to think Truck […]

Wednesday Links: More and more Red Sox arriving at Fort Myers

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.

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 […]

Monday Links: Snow’s a comin’, warm up with some baseball

As New England prepares to get whacked with snow this week, reading about baseball should serve as a sweet release from the bitter cold…. Major League Baseball lost an icon over the weekend, as Ernie Banks passed away at the 83. Banks spent his entire 19-year career as a shortstop and first baseman for the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Monday Links: Should Red Sox go all-in on Stephen Strasburg trade?

Ever since the Red Sox acquired Rick Porcello, Wade Miley, and Justin Masterson this offseason, general manager Ben Cherington has down played the team’s desire to acquire an ace. With high price tags on both the trade and free agent market’s, Boston pushed all of their chips to the center of the table on a […]
