Sox Reach 80-Win Plateau and it’s Only Early August

Considering that baseball teams play a 162 game season (the longest schedule in sports), when a team crosses the 80 win plateau they essentially assure themselves of a successful season.

At the very least they have won half of their games and are guaranteed of finishing with a .500 winning percentage or better. read more

Travis Shaw Emerges In Place Of Pablo Sandoval

After winning the starting third baseman job over Pablo Sandoval in Spring Training, Travis Shaw has become one of the most important players in the Red Sox lineup.

The 26-year old has yet to miss a game this season, playing 25 games and hitting .322 with a .923 OPS, three home runs, and 17 RBIs. read more

Hanley Ramirez’s Move to First Means Improvement

There’s no denying the fact that three-time all-star Hanley Ramirez’s first season back in Boston didn’t go too well.

His fielding was disastrous in left field, a position he switched to after playing at shortstop and third base for the majority of his career. The team performed better without him in the lineup late in the season, and he finished the season with a batting average of .249, the lowest in his career. read more

A Look Into The Future of the Boston Red Sox

Spring training is right around the corner and a lot of buzz will be in Boston regarding this brand new Red Sox team. After a disaster of a 2012 season there is some hope that these new changes will bring at least some respect back to Boston baseball.  The Red Sox made quite a few splashes this offseason through free agency, but one aspect of the game people tend to forget is the players that haven’t even stepped foot on a major league diamond yet. read more

Good or Bad? The 2013 Red Sox Season is Getting Closer

Whatever will the Red Sox 2013 season be like? What’s happened to the Red Sox? It only seems like yesterday when we were riding the crest of the wave, smashing the Yanks and generally pulverizing anyone who got in our way. Now, though, we’re like Samson after his haircut. read more

The Red Sox drop Che-Hsuan Lin to make room for Sandy Rosario

On Wednesday 17th October, the Boston Red Sox gained Sandy Rosario, in a move that will hopefully mean good news for the team. Rosario is a right -handed pitcher, born in the Dominican Republic, who has long proven himself worthy of being chosen by the Red Sox. In 2004, he was signed with the Florida Marlins as a free agent and his career has stemmed from there. He was first called up for the Majors in 2010, after playing for the Jacksonville Suns and helping them to win the Southern League. Rosario has been a part of the MLB since September of that same year, when he played against the Milwaukee Brewers. read more

I am a little bit Salty.

So the Red Sox are once again off to a great start. They have a pompous asshole as a manager, who people say is a great baseball mind. Well I have not seen it thus far. He left Bard in just a little too long the other night, last night he leaves Franklin Morales in for 1 batter to long, then he has Jarrod Saltalamacchia pinch hit representing the tying run. read more

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

Pedro Ciriaco: Running His Way to the Majors

If I were to tell you in January that there would be a player that would hit .415 during spring training, most fans would think I was talking about Adrian Gonzalez, maybe Dustin Pedroia or even Jacoby Ellsbury, however I don’t believe anyone would have thought that player was Pedro Ciriaco. read more

Beckett To Have Thumb Evaluated

In the latest news from the 2012 Red Sox pitching rotation, Josh Beckett is headed to Texas. The pitcher has an alleged thumb injury that needs to be evaluated, and he will have it done in San Antonio. Apparently this came up about 10 days ago, but there were no negative effects on  his pitching, so nobody was worried. This is just a matter of putting Beckett at peace with the situation. read more

Bobby V Sets Red Sox Rotation

Just four days before the beginning of the 2012 Major League Baseball season, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine has finally settled on his starting rotation. The final decision came down just moments ago on who the 4th and 5th starters would be.

Here is a look at our Boston Red Sox starters this season – and a quick look at their pitching numbers from last season. (Please take note that Felix Doubront’s pitching numbers are his minor league stats from last season and Daniel Bard’s pitching stats are all from relief appearances) You can study stats with the best sports books. read more

Fenway to Host Henry’s Liverpool

In a bit of news indirectly related to the Red Sox, John Henry is bringing his second love, Liverpool Football Club, to this side of the pond this summer. This doesn’t exactly raise eyebrows around Red Sox Nation except for the minor fact that Fenway Park will be the site where one of their preseason friendlies will be played. read more
