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 […]

Thursday Links: What are the Red Sox doing to Jackie Bradley?

In case you forgot, Jackie Bradley Jr. is still occupying a spot on the Red Sox 25-man roster. Since being recalled from triple-A Pawtucket on May 10th, the center fielder has appeared in 6 games, and has spent the bulk of his 2 week stay on the bench. Still at the relatively young age of […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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: 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 […]

Friday Links: Pitch clock, batter’s box rule could work well together

For starters, I have no problem with the MLB trying to trim the fat off a typical nine inning game. Everyone knows that there’s a ton of standing around, dead time between pitches, and sometimes an excessive amount of pitcher-catcher conferences. I, like everyone else this day and age, prefer to have most things happen […]

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 […]

Thursday Links: New year brings clean slate for Red Sox

Welcome to 2015, a year Red Sox fans in particular are happy to welcome in. After an abysmal 2014 season in which the team followed up their worst-to-first campaign with a return to worst, the Red Sox have made large strides this winter in ensuring a improved product in the new year. Boston’s lineup will […]

Monday Links: Red Sox just about done, still could add reliever

With December just about over, the Red Sox will head into the new year with almost their entire roster figured out. In the line-up the team made significant offensive upgrades with the additions of Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez. Sandoval, who should solve the third base problem for the foreseeable future, will bring a .294/.346/.465 […]

Wednesday links: Checking in on AL East rivals; Tampa Bay Rays edition

From top to bottom, no team went through quite as many changes as the Tampa Bay Rays have this offseason. The teams first casualty came during the MLB Playoffs, when Rays general manager Andrew Friedman announced that he was leaving Tampa Bay and joining the L.A. Dodgers front office as the President of Baseball Operations. […]
