Just A Bump In The Road

The Red Sox have hit a rough patch of late and after losing two out of three to both the lowly Seattle Mariners and rival Tampa Bay Rays the Sox find themselves trailing the New York Yankees by a half game in the A.L. East.  Ironically it has been the Red Sox bats and not …

Wouldn’t Mind This Guy Being The No. 3 Starter

The Sox picked up a series split last night after falling to the Indians 7-3 at Fenway Park behind the efforts of once friend of the program Justin Masterson.  Masterson went 6 strong innings giving up 3 runs while striking out 9 Red Sox batters, improving to 3-0 in four career starts against his former …

Buchholz Done, Lackey’s Chance To Stop Being An Idiot

Twitter has let me down of late (doesn’t help trying to break trades after a couple cocktails either), but word on that beast is that last year’s American League ERA leader, Clay Buchholz, has a stress fracture in his back and is likely to miss the remainder of the season.  I do not believe this …

Forget Beltran, Get Me This Guy

The All-Star game is behind us and now it is time to look towards the MLB trade deadline.  Theo has made it clear that he will be looking for an OF bat prior to July 31 and if I had my choice that guy would be Hunter Pence.  Pence may not be as sexy of …

AGon to Roam Around The Outfield Tomorrow

Let me start off by saying I do not envy Tito’s position right now.  Ortiz has been one of the best hitters in the American League this year and you obviously can’t sit him for like 6 straight series, the offense has been struggling during this NL tour, and you would have to be deranged …

World Series Rescheduled for June 28th-30th

Let me start off by saying I am not a fan of inter league play, watching the Mariners battle the Marlins just doesn’t do it for me, but that’s an argument for a different day.  With that being said, every rule has an exception and the upcoming series between the Sox and Phils at Citizens …

John Lackey Stellar Again

Padres take two out of three from Sox after their 5-1 victory today. Not much to report here, Lackey pitched and there were like 16 rain delays.  Lester goes on Friday in Blitzburgh.   P.S.  Lackey has to be the only pitcher in the bigs who can give up 5 runs in a hurricane
