The flaws with the MLB All-Star game have been well documented over the years. The seemingly unanswerable question of “why does an exhibition game dictate home field advantage in the World Series?” always pops up without fail. In the same breath, questioning the “fan vote” is often a habitual sign of the season. But perhaps […]
With just four weeks to go until the July 31st trade deadline, the Red Sox find themselves in a strange position.

Boston’s shortcomings […]
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 […]
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 […]
With Opening Day right around the corner, the Red Sox starting staff is still shaking off the winter rust this spring: Clay Buchholz: 3 GS, 10 innings pitched, 1.80 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 12 K, 2 BB Rick Porcello: 3 GS, 10 innings pitched, 2.70 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 8 K, 3 BB Wade Miley: 2 G, […]
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 […]
5 reasons to love this talented prospect joining the Red Sox farm system.
Consistency isn’t a word I would use to describe the Red Sox over the past few years, and although the club is but one season removed from a World Series title, the Red Sox enter 2015 with more to prove than that might normally suggest. A successful October is always worth cherishing, but when it […]
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 […]
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.

With December just about over, the Red Sox will head into the new year with almost their entire roster figured out.

Without a doubt the most compelling storyline this postseason has been the utter dominance displayed by the Kansas City Royals. Currently up 2 games to none in the best of 7 American League Championship Series against the Baltimore Orioles, Kansas City’s fortune this October has come from all facets of the game.
