Sox Lack of Run Support Means Another Loss

The Red Sox came into the game with the series tied and were hoping for a series win.  Clay Buchholz was on the mound for the Sox and in his last few outings he has looked much more like the promising pitcher we need him to be.  Buchholz struggled some in the early innings, but […]

Kelly’s Strong Start Wasted in Loss to Rangers

The Red Sox looked to  have another strong start out of Joe Kelly when they took on the Texas Rangers on Wednesday.  They definitely got that from Kelly, but unfortunately it was another game where the Sox offense went silent.  Kelly only gave up 2 runs, but when the offense only scores one you are […]

Red Sox Look For Continuation Of Strong Pitching Against Rangers, Angels

They aren’t running out of time just yet—the Major League Baseball season hasn’t even reached the one-quarter mark at this point—but the Boston Red Sox are taking a long time to get their new, revamped roster to click. After splitting a four-game series with the Seattle Mariners, the Red Sox look ahead to this week […]

Chili Davis and RISPs

In Peter Abraham’s Red Sox Notebook column earlier this week, he mentions a constant problem in the team’s lineup, the inability to hit with runners in scoring position. The Sox’ RISP (sometimes called SPos) was a league-low .205. Some of the figures were embarrassing-David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia, Mike Napoli, Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez were […]

Papi and Nap Homer in Sox Win!

The Red Sox came home to Fenway after splitting the road trip and moving out of the basement in the AL East.  The Sox had Wade Miley on the mound vs. Gallardo for the Rangers.  Miley pitched well in his last outing and he’d need to do the same last night.  More importantly the Sox […]

Mariners Blank Sox; Split Series

The Red Sox lead the series 2-1 coming into Sunday’s day game.  The Sox had knuckleballer Steven Wright on the mound vs. James Paxton for the Mariners.  Wright was recently called up to replace Justin Masterson in the rotation.  Wright gave up a few runs, but had himself a positive spot start.  However since the […]

Red Sox Bats Take Down King Felix!

The Red Sox came into the series 1-1, but to win this one they would need to beat Felix Hernandez who came into the game with an impressive 6-0 record.  The Sox had Rick Porcello on the mound who has made his case to be the ace of the Sox rotation.  Porcello had himself a […]

AL East Standings 5/15/15

I forgot to do the standings last week.  We were in last place.  It was no bueno. Here are the standings as of 5/15/15 for the AL East: The Red Sox are no longer sitting in the basement, but there is only a game in between the Sox and the Jays and O’s who are […]

Mariners Walk Off in the 9th on Sox!

The Red Sox came into the game winning two in a row and having two quality starts from their pitchers.  The Sox had Clay Buchholz on the mound and hoped he could continue that trend.  Buchholz did pitch what could be considered a gem, but got only one run in support from the Sox offense. […]

Another Strong Start, Another Sox Win

The Red Sox headed to Seattle to face off against the Mariners in a 4 game series to finish off their west coast stretch.  The Sox had Joe Kelly on the mound who struggled mightily in his last start.  Kelly would not end up with the win, but he sure had himself a nice outing. […]

Wade Miley Comes Through & Brings Sox A Much Needed Win

The Red Sox came into the final game of the series with the A’s after a horrible performance from Justin Masterson the night before.  Wade Miley has previously had some problems as well, but he put them all behind him today and was able to work some magic to get out of trouble each and […]

Steven Wright – Long Relief

Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright is a journeyman in the true sense of the word. Drafted by the Indians after a fine career at the University of Hawaii, he has changed teams (majors and minors) no less than 21 times, including three short stints with the Sox. Most recently, he was brought up Saturday from Pawtucket, where he […]

Masterson Struggles As Sox Lose to A’s

The Red Sox haven’t changed much since the hiring of their new pitching coach Carl Willis.  Justin Masterson took the mound on Tuesday night and wasn’t long before the Sox were in a big hole and he was sitting in the dugout.  Masterson has looked pretty hittable in almost all of his performances this season […]

It Took 11 Innings, but Sox Took First Game From A’s

The Red Sox headed out on a west coast swing that included a series with the A’s and the Mariners.  The Sox had Rick Porcello on the mound who is the closest thing they have had to an actual ace since the 2015 season began vs. Scott Kazmir.  The score went back and forth all […]

Sox Offense Comes to Life in Win Over Blue Jays!

The Red Sox had a team meeting after the loss yesterday and whatever it was that they said, it seemed to have worked.  Clay Buchholz was on the mound and it might have been the best we have seen him since Opening Day.  I am still not sure he’s the ace, but he sure looked […]
