Red Sox Winding Down Season Against the Orioles

The Red Sox have¬†had a rough season. Loaded with talent they got off to a decent start but the lack of solid pitching, personnel changes and injuries have taken a toll on them and have made it difficult to string together enough wins to post at least a .500 record. With about 10 games to play they have returned to their winning ways in the month of September but face a deficit from frequent summer losses that looks to be insurmountable. Some players like Ortiz, and Bogaerts who hit his first Major League grand sllam this past week have been bright spots in an otherwise turbulent, albeit up and down season. The Red Sox are looking to rebound against the surging Baltimore Orioles who make the trip to Fenway to face some Rookie pitchers and then Henry Owens on Sunday. Wren has now joined Dombrowski’s team as they look to re-build and re-structure a winning roster for next season. Let’s hope they turn things around sometime soon.

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

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
