Red Sox Riding 3-Game Winning Streak Into Weekend

The Boston Red Sox come off a wild week where they are riding a hope-filled 3 game winning streak after posting a 6-4 record in their last 10 games. They are not completely out of the playoff race due to a wild card possibility but are a difficult 12 and a half games behind in the always competitive AL East. In fact, in a sudden offensive resurgence….. the Red Sox scored 22 runs in one game where they welcomed the return of future prospect and minor leaguer Jackie Bradley Jr. to the Big League Ballclub. This game was played  shortly after the team heard of the illness of manager John Farrell, the trade of Mike Napoli to the Texas Rangers, and that GM Ben Cherington was soon to be replaced by Dave Dombrowski from the Detroit Tigers. read more

Post All-Star Break: Red Sox Stumble Out of Starting Gates: Looking to Regroup and Possibly Trade Up.

It appears at this point in the season and after last weeks stumbling to get a win after the All-Star Break…. that the Red Sox are in need of some extra help and quickly at that.

With the trading deadline less than a week away I would be shocked if the Red Sox did not make some major-league deals. Manager John Farrell and upper management have already alluded to the fact of this happening unless performances improve soon. It will be extremely interesting to see exactly what types of moves will be made. Should the Sox land another set of players for a Pennant chase this season or re-strategize to trade up for the future? Either way, it looks like the Sox will enjoy a solid core of strong up and coming players for many years to come. read more

Sox Trying To Keep Momentum Alive Into Second Half of Season.

Currently, after a much deserved Thursday night off and riding a 4 game winning streak, the Boston Red Sox head into their weekend series against the Yankees before the ever important All-Star Game.

Verified pitching ace and righty Clay Buchholz gets the ball in the Friday night opening game against the rival New York Yankees. He has been spectacular in his last six starts and shown that he is someone the Sox can count on to pitch in big games. Plainly and simply if he gets run support the team has an excellent chance to win games. Koji has been back in good form too anchoring a struggling bullpen to clamp down some much needed wins to keep the Red Sox alive in the Al East playoff Race. read more

He also stated that the Red Sox would be actively pursuing trades to solidify the team during the busy Baseball months of June And July. read more

Don’t Count Out Sox Just Yet

As the All-Star Break rapidly approaches the Boston Red Sox sit with a record of 22-26. Many have started to write-off the 2015 season, yet fail to recognize that the Sox are still only a few games back in a weakened yet competitive AL East Division. If last weekend’s series against the Angels is any indication, they are a team bouncing back from the brink of disaster.  read more

Red Sox Roll Into Memorial Day Weekend With Many Lingering Questions

At a Clip of 19-22 and riding a 1 game winning streak….the Boston Red Sox roll into their Memorial Day Weekend matchup with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at beautiful Fenway Park. Coming off of last night’s 3-0 victory over the Oakland A’s, throughout this season these Red Sox have shown moments of brilliance like on Opening Day where they won 8-0 with Bucholz pitching scoreless innings and Hanley Ramirez hammering the ball out of the park with a HR and a grand slam. Since then, they have played fairly well at times….but many questions linger as the bats have gone cold, injuries to Ortiz and Hanley Ramirez have taken some wind out of the sails, and the pitching staff struggles to find an identity under an unexpected pitching coaching change. read more

Victorino Hits Homerun As Sox Win First of Four In Seattle

 Te Boston Red Sox headed into Seattle to play the first of a Four Game Road Series at the Mariners’ Safeco Field. Perhaps, the team has bounced back from recent pitching controversies as Joe Kelly pitched 6.1 solid innings and the Red Sox won 2-1. The Red Sox knew it would not be easy to go into Seattle especially since this is the first Boston sports team to do so since the Patriots won the Super Bowl over Seattle in a spectacular and unanticpated  last minute interception by Malcolm Butler…. leaving many Seattle fans shocked and upset. Amazingly, Shane Victorino was the hero for the night blasting a Homerun during the 2-1 victory. Many fans were surprised to hear the fact that this has been his first Homer of the year as he has seen limited action playing in the outfield. Tonight, the series continues with Pitcher Clay Buchholz taking to the mound. With the former pitching coach being replaced, Buchholz needs to show what he can do to be the anchor of the staff. With the new pitching coach the rotation will probably be shaken up as other Pitchers are acquired.  We will have to wait and see how the new Pitching Coach re-formulates a staff that will hopefully, carry the Boston Red Sox through the playoffs and once again into the World Series. As Dustin Pedroia would attest to a World Series Win this season has to be the goal of the team. buckle your seatbelt and Enjoy the Ride Red Sox fans as we are in for another fun and exciting Baseball Season. Go Sox.

Red Sox Are Back On Track

Not only are the Boston Red Sox back…. but they appear to be once again Back on Track. After the first week of exciting regular season action the Red Sox, are perched atop the AL East Division with an overall record of 5 Wins and 2 Losses. That’s a winning percentage of .714. The Red Sox started this 2015 season on the road in Philadelphia. Clay Buchholz was the Opening Day starter and dazzled the Red Sox Faithful by pitching masterfully for seven innings…. surrendering no runs, striking out 9, and walking only one. Manager John Farrell must have had a huge sigh of relief after this performance as Buchholz is expected to anchor the staff as the #1 starter while the other pitchers (Miley, Masterson, Kelly,Porcello and Workman) carefully ease into their starting pitcher roles to complete the staff. Many are also expecting trades to pick up a proven starter like a Cole Hamels. However, on this Opening Day Buchholz showed that he was the better Number 1 starter in picking up the win 8-0! Dustin Pedroia and Hanley Ramirez hit homeruns in the victory with Hanley Ramiorez showing he will be a force…. even hitting a Grand Slam to close the door on any rallies by the Phillies. Red Sox Nation was quite pleased with this impressive win. After taking 2 out of 3 in the opening road series…. the Red Sox travelled up north to face the Yankees. They would again take 2 out of three as the bats of the veterans started to wake up. Victorino, Ortiz, and Napoli showed that despite injuries they can still contribute with their steady play. The Yankees were befuddled by this strong 2015 Red Sox team and upset in their own stadium losing the series while barely getting a win. The Red Sox know they have to subdue the Yankees and the Orioles if they want any chance of winning the AL Pennant. So Far So Good! Finally, our Heroes…. the Boston Red Sox made their way back to Boston’s Fenway Park for the Home Opener. Red Sox Legends Pedro Martinez, David Ortiz, and Patriots QB Tom Brady hung out before the Opener with Pedro even throwing batting practice to former baseball player Brady! The 3  Red Sox World series Championship Trophies were displayed along with the recent Patriot’s Super Bowl on the storied Fenway Park Field. In a great way to start the season Tom Brady was invited to throw out the First Pitch. Brady inadvertently through a slider that one hopped in front of the plate with a bounce…. but of course…. acting as Catcher Big David Ortiz helped him save face by scooping it up before it could escape to the back stop. The crowd chuckled knowing Tom Brady is definitely more suited to throwing footballs. Nevertheless David Ortiz congratulated Brady with one of his now trademarked Big Papi hugs. The Red Sox then played ball against the Washington Nationals in what would turn out to be another spectacular game. Rick Porcello made his pitching debut with the Boston Ballclub and enjoyed a wonderful amount of run support. The Red Sox would go on to win 9-4. With Ortiz chipping in a HR while 22-Year Old CF Mookie Betts put on what looked like a Baseball skills clinic….. Stealing 2 consecutive bases, Homering again, and even defensively robbing an important comeback HR while playing a solid Centerfield. On an amazing team of athletes Mookie Betts looks to be another incredible everyday player that will make the team better. And did I mention that  RP Koji Uehara was activated again from the diasabled list on Monday April 13? This means when the Red Sox aren’t winning by wide margins they will once again have one of the best closers of the past few seasons. The future looks bright indeed for the these 2015 Boston Red Sox as they continue their quest for another Pennant.
