Is It Time For Lester To Go?

  With the Royals announcement that mega-prospect Will Myers is available to be traded, and because of the Royals previous interest in Lester it’s time to think about letting him go. Lester had a miserable 2012 season, setting career lows in ERA (4.82) and strikeouts (166) and at 28 he really should be in his […]

Is the Swish a Good Fit?

              Word is that the Red Sox and the Yankees have had a mini biding war over free agent Nick Swisher. Swisher is switch hitter who is listed as an outfielder, but can play most positions of the diamond. He’s coming off a season where he batted a bit […]

Introducing Juan Nieves

Still trying to recoil from the Valentine Disaster, the Red Sox have gone with another low-profile addition to the coaching staff. Juan Nieves has served the past five seasons with the Chicago White Sox as the bullpen coach. Nieves is a former pitcher, and although his career was short and mediocre for the most part, […]

Free Agent/Trade Targets

    Adam LaRoche: He won’t be a free agent this season, but he could be a good player to trade for. He’s had a solid season, beating .271 and hitting 33 HR’s. He could be a good addition at a relatively low price.   Hiroki Kuroda: He’s a veteran, a class act, and would […]

V is for Vacant

After the first losing record since 1997, there’s not a big question as to whether or not Bobby Valentine should be fired. We are only to wonder who should replace him. Here are five great candidates for the job. Dave Martinez: After sitting under Joe Maddon, possibly the best manager in baseball, for five years, […]

Red Sox Can’t Stop the Sweep

The Red Sox succumbed to the Angels in today’s 5-2 loss, providing the Angels with their second 3 game sweep of the year. Zack Greinke took the mound for the Angels and looked wild at first, as his pitches constantly landed in the dirt. However, that didn’t stop Greinke from going seven innings with two […]

A-Gon Gone?

This morning the L.A Times reported that the Dodgers were still interested in acquiring Adrian Gonzalez from the Red Sox. Now, it is reported that the Dodgers have claimed Adrian Gonzalez off of waivers and are working on a blockbuster trade including Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, and Nick Punto. There is no word on what the Red […]

What Took So Long?

The Red Sox finally fired first year pitching coach Bob McClure. McClure led the Red Sox’s pitching staff to an MLB eighth worst ERA (4.30) and a sub .500 record, so it’s seemingly a miracle he lasted this long. McClure was brought in as a scout before Bobby Valentine, but was promoted to pitching coach […]

The Chase: Pinning Down the Red Sox’s Playoff Chances

We are now in the middle of August, so it’s time to truly evaluate our playoff chances as the  wild card hunt begins. The Red Sox have clearly underperformed this season, but there is no better time to make up for it then when they blew it last season. Using current wild card standings, they […]

Sox Fall Short

It seems like today’s game against the Rangers was a microcosm for the 2012 season. The pitching puts us at a big disadvantage, and the offense falls just short of making up for it. Both teams came out swinging today but the Rangers finished victorious. Beckett went five innings, allowing 8 runs (2 in the sixth without […]
