Don’t look now, but the Red Sox are no longer dead last in the MLB in combined starting pitching ERA. Thanks to a recent string of quality starts by Boston’s hurlers, the team seems like they are finally getting the results they planned on when rebuilding the rotation this past winter. Over the past two […]
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, […]
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 […]
Perhaps no one on the 2015 Hall of Fame ballot is more deserving of a first year selection than former Red Sox ace Pedro Martinez. An 18-year veteran, Martinez dominated the game during the controversial steroid era and finished his career with three Cy Young Awards; two of which came in Boston. Standing at 5’11, […]
Amid all the craziness that has ensued this offseason, it’s pretty remarkable that the New York Yankees have been fairly quiet thus far. The typically free spending front office lead by Brian Cashman kept themselves out of the market for high price free agent talent like Jon Lester and Hanley Ramirez, despite the teams need […]
It didn’t take long for the hot stove to turn white hot at the MLB Winter Meetings in San Diego. Amid a plethora of rumors, two significant transactions were made; one involving a trade and the other regarding a free agent signing. For the second straight offseason, free agent right hander Jason Hammel signed on […]
This week marks a potentially important seven days for the Boston Red Sox, as two of the teams highly coveted pitching options are reportedly drawing closer to final decisions. Free agent left-hander Jon Lester will meet with the San Francisco Giants on Monday, before making his final decision later in the week. The 30-year old […]
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 […]
After extending an offer to Jon Lester, and hosting Pablo Sandoval earlier this week, all was quiet on Yawkey Way on Thursday. The team appears to be in holding pattern of both free agents while Lester visits other clubs, and Sandoval gauges his market. Yesterday we learned that the Toronto Blue Jays are a team […]
Money is now more of a cushion, and less of a tool.
The Red Sox and the rest of major league baseball bid a fond farewell to Yankee’s Captain Derek Jeter over the weekend, as the 40-year old played the final series of his 20 year career. After Boston and New York split the first two games of the weekend series, the bitter rivals took Sunday’s game […]
It didn’t take long for the Red Sox to build a substantial lead against the Yankees on Wednesday evening. In the first of a three game series, Boston tallied two first inning runs off Yankees starter Shane Greene. After Mookie Betts singled and David Ortiz reached via a walk, Yoenis Cespedes drilled an RBI double […]
