“The coaching staff was prepared to do everything that we were supposed to do to help Bobby succeed, but not once did he portray what he wanted us to do to help him and eventually he shut some of us out completely…The last couple of times I’ve read stuff about that there was no communication […]

“David Ortiz came back after spending about six weeks on the disabled list and we thought it was only going to be a week. He got two hits the first two times up, drove in a couple runs; we were off to the races. Then he realized that this trade meant that we’re not going […]

Farrell Press Conference Memories….thanks @RedSox!

I was lucky enough to win an invitation to the Farrell press conference this afternoon.  The Red Sox twitter account had a contest where you could post questions to Farrell and they would pick 5 followers to invite them to the event.  Here is the winning question I posted to twitter: I got to Fenway […]

Sox 67

The weekend of October 7 and 8 was pretty much a lost one for the Cardiac Kids, as the Cardinals pitching depth became apparent. St Louis made short work of Sox starters Gary Bell and Jose Santiago in 5-2 and 6-0 lacings, putting Boston on the brink of losing in 5 games. Before 50,000 in […]

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 […]

“I’m extremely excited to be returning to the Red Sox and to Boston. I love this organization. It’s a great franchise in a special city and region, with great fans, and we want nothing more than to reward their faith in us.” –John Farrell on being named manager of the Red Sox.

John Farrell is the Red Sox New Manager

The Red Sox have hired their former pitching coach John Farrell to manage the team.  To complete the deal Boston had to send shortstop Mike Aviles to the Blue Jays as compensation.  Farrell has signed a three year contract and the team will hold a press conference to announce the signing early next week.

Magadan Leaves Red Sox

Quote of the Day

“I really think the booing spooked a lot of guys. A lot of guys hadn’t been booed before, and they couldn’t believe how nasty it got in the stands. A lot of guys were talking about it in the clubhouse. I was surprised by how much it bothered them. I really don’t think they ever […]

John Farrell is Still in the Mix

The Red Sox have begun the interview process to find their new manager but they are also talking with the Blue Jays to find a compensation package that would work for sending John Farrell to Boston.  Earlier in the week John Farrell said he did not know of any talks between the Red Sox and […]

Why Not Tony Pena?

Are the Sox ready for a minority manager? You bet they are. Hiring a Hispanic or African-American skipper should put to rest the last vestiges of the team’s reputation of racism. When younger fans hear about the “good-old-boy” image of the Sox, they probably think of the 40’s and 50’s and the presence of alleged […]

Red Sox Claim Rosario, DFA Lin

The Red Sox have claimed relief pitcher Sandy Rosario off of waivers from the Marlins.  Che-Hsuan Lin was designated for assignment to make room for Rosario on the 40-man roster.

Sox 67

For some reason, the 67 World Series occupies a small space on the “Impossible Dream” 33 1/3 disk. But the seven-game showdown was anything but anticlimactic. Sox fans did not want to stop with a pennant-they wanted to be World Champions. Even then, it had been a long time-49 years to be exact- since a […]

More Manager Interviews Set for This Week

Last week the Red Sox interviewed Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach to see if he would be a good fit as the next skipper of the team, this week they have three more candidates scheduled to interview.  First up is Tony Pena Jr., the former catcher for the Red Sox and current Yankees bench […]

“If the Red Sox have contacted Alex, I’m unaware of that. I can tell you this: In my conversations with Alex, it hasn’t distracted me from my job and what the commitment there is. I’m extremely challenged, happy as the manager of the Blue Jays. But it’s obvious that there’s a vacancy to fill there […]

Red Sox Interview Tim Wallach

The Red Sox are beginning the interview process to find a new manager and they are starting with Dodger’s third base coach Tim Wallach.  After playing third base in the majors for 17 years with the Expos, Dodgers, and Angels, Wallach began coaching as the hitting coach for the Dodgers in 2004.  He was a […]
