Let’s take a look at what players could become available to the Sox as the season goes on…
Another Red Sox rally led this time by J.D. Drew and Manny Ramirez was squandered by the bullpen brass as Boston lost 10-6. Down 4-3 headed into the bottom of the fifth inning Drew and Ramirez hit back-to-back home runs to give the Sox a 6-4 lead.
Welcome to the 2008 Know Thy Enemy series. A staple of Fire Brand that covers all AL East foes plus itself, it starts early this year because the Red Sox are headed to Japan to open the 2008 season against the Oakland Athletics. What follows is Fire Brand‘s predicted order of finish, from last place [...]
Jacoby Ellsbury hit his first Major League homerun for the Boston Red Sox and Jon Lester earned his third victory of the season beating the Baltimore Orioles 3-2. Hideki Okajima earned his 25th hold of the season and Jonathan Papelbon closed the door in the ninth for his 31st save of the season. Mike Lowell [...]
Read the initial reaction to the no hitter by Evan Brunell Even if Clay Buchholz pitched a no-hitter in his first major league start he was going to be sent back down to the minor leagues. No need for Buccholz to go back down to the minors now as Buccholz pitched his first MLB no-hitter [...]
