Beckett Pitches Well, Bullpen Doesn’t

The Red Sox lost…again. After starting off last season 2-10, though, this season seems like a breeze. The Red Sox already have 4 wins, but they collected their 8th loss tonight against the Texas Rangers. It really should come as no surprise though considering the Rangers’ prolific offense and the Red Sox general lack of pitching. On the bright side, a 6-3 loss feels so much better than the 18-3 loss they suffered yesterday at the hands of these same Rangers. read more

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 the pitching that harvest the blame for their recent struggles.  Ellsbury has been the only bright spot of late, continuing his push for MVP and a new paycheck.  Adrian Gonzalez has been doing his best Tony Gwynn impression, dominating the average department while only collecting one big fly since the All-Star break (I am as concerned as others are with that) and has gone a season long eight games with out collecting an RBI.  Carl Crawford is still no help  continuing  his miserable  season and I have officially given up hope that he is going to turn it around (shipped his .200 avg off my fantasy squad last week),  Pedroia has cooled down of late and with Youkilis hitting the D.L. today and Ortiz out for at least a week it looks like the offense will continue to struggle in the immediate future. read more

Sox In 1st Again and Continue To Make The Yankees Their Daddy In 2011, Yawn

The New York Yankees came to town Friday tied with the Red Sox atop the A.L. East, but left Sunday finding themselves looking up at the Red Sox once again.  The Red Sox relinquished the top spot in the division for the first time since the middle of June after Jon Lester and the boys lost the first game of the series Friday night.  However their time in second did not last long as the Sox, behind their sticks and solid outings from Lackey and Ace Beckett, took back first place by winning the next two against the Yanks.  The series victory continued the Sox success over the Pinstripes in 2011, improving to 10-2 against the Bombers and clinching the season series.  Here is a quick look at the series: read more

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 mates. Masterson has quietly had a great season for the Tribe and currently holds a 2.63  ERA.  After two walk off victories in the previous games, this contest was relatively boring with the Sox scoring early (scored 2 in the 1st inning) and the Indians taking it from there.  Carlos Santana, fresh off a four strike out night, lead the Cleveland offense going 3-4 with a HR and 3 R.B.I. and Jacoby Ellsbury stayed hot going 2-3 in a losing effort. read more

200 On Hold, Sox Other MVP Candidate Continues Path to Pay Day

Looks like Timmy boy will have to wait for his next start (Monday at Minnesota) to gather win number 200.  The newly turned 45 year old yielded 3 runs on 5 hits while collecting a no decision in the Sox 4-3 walk off win last night at Fenway.  Wake was the story early but Ellsbury was the story late, collecting his second walk off hit in two nights, this one by way of the long ball sending the Sox to one of the more memorable wins this season.  Here are a few thoughts about last nights game: read more

Theo’s Time to Shine

The Red Sox have had a little case of the J.D. Drews spreading throughout the clubhouse with with the likes of Crawford, Buchholz, and most recently Lester finding themselves on the the Disabled List.  I attended the game Tuesday night and I almost thought I was watching a game from last season with Darnell McDonald hosing guys to win games and a guy named Yamaico Navarro manning the hot corner.  The All-Star break is near and the next couple of weeks will have a significant impact on the second half of the season. read more

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 not to pencil in AGon’s .600 average and 176 RBI.  It only makes sense to try to get both of these landscapers in the line up together. read more

Padres Walk Past Sox


Alfredo Aceves did his best Rick “Wildthing” Vaughn impression last night,  giving up four runs on four hits and six walks while throwing a career high 98 pitches during a 5 IP no decision.  Filling it for a sick Josh Beckett, Aceves had trouble finding the strike zone putting the Sox in an early 4-1 hole.  The Sox chipped away at Padres starter Matt Latos, eventually tying the game at 4, behind four hits from Kevin “the Chin” Youkilis, Ortiz’s blazing speed, and a game tying RBI single from AL MVP Adrian Gonzalez in the 6th.  However San Diego’s bullpen was lights out (they have a really impressive bullpen, the Sox should take a peak around the deadline to see if they are selling any of those dudes) and the Padres were able to take game two of the three game set 5-4. read more

What Happened This Weekend?

Just returned from Las Vegas, got through the Yanks series then everything after that was a a blur.  What happened in the games last weekend?  Did the MLB switch to NFL rules while I was gone?  Did Roberto Luongo start every game for the Blue Jays?  Silly Canucks. Was Lebron some how involved with this? I refuse to believe those were traditionally played baseball games, I will appreciate every and all explanations for what went down. read more

Pitching Match-Ups: Red Sox at Yankees

The Red Sox start the day sitting one game out of first place in the AL East. During this series against the Yankees, they are looking to move into the top spot in the division. To do so they must win at least two out of three game, which would put that at a tie with the Yankees. This series, they are throwing two of their best three pitchers at the Yankees. To start the series, the Red Sox have Jon Lester on the bump against Freddy Garcia of the Yankees. After a few tough starts his last few times around, the Red Sox game Lester a few more days of rest in hope of Lester returning to his normal self. read more
