Ben Cherington-Lack of Identity

The Herald’s Scott Lauber was correct. The Red Sox made only two minor moves before the trade deadline. This seems to reflect Ben Cherington’s continuing lack of identity. In his press conferences he seems uncomfortable and speaks in platitudes. Meanwhile, the Sox have one of the worst records in baseball and are headed for their […]

Sox Rally Late to Take First Game From Rays

The trade deadline came and went and the Red Sox appeared to neither be sellers nor buyers.  Mike Napoli was still in a Sox uniform and it ended up being a good thing as his offense was the difference maker in the game.  Eduardo Rodriguez started the game for the Sox and pitched well enough […]

Sox Need Pedro on the Mound

Pedro Martinez’ number was retired this week, two days after his Hall of Fame induction.  I’m going to pull a Rick Pitino and say “Pedro is not walking through that door anytime soon”. In a 3-page piece entitled “Pedro the Conqueror”, the Globe’s Bob Hohler recounted Martinez’ record with the Red Sox: 117-37, a winning […]

White Sox Take 3 out of 4 From the Red Sox

This week the Red Sox came home and heading up to the trade deadline they didn’t do anything to show that they had a run in them to salvage 2015.  The Red Sox struggled in every single one of their games with the White Sox.  They lost the first 3 straight and then were able […]

Brian Johnson- A Ray of Hope in the Darkness (Part 2)

The Red Sox selected Johnson as the 31st pick in the 2012 draft.  He moved quickly through the farm system. He opened some eyes last year between Salem (A-plus) and Portland (AA), with a combined 13-3 and 2.13 with a WHIP under one. This year at Pawtucket  he continued strong with an 8-6 mark and 2.73 […]

Sox Can’t Win 2 in a Row as Tigers Best Wright

The Red Sox came off a win that snapped an 8 game losing streak and were looking for another win to add to the books.  The Sox had knuckleballer Steven Wright on the mound and hoped that his knuckleball would get the hot hitting Tigers lineup off their game.  Unfortunately the Tiger bats had Wright’s […]

Sox Finally Win One, Even If It Takes 11 Innings!

The Red Sox headed home to face off against the Tigers and were definitely hoping for some home cooking.  The Sox had Rick Porcello on the mound against his former team while the Tigers sent out ace Justin Verlander.  Verlander hasn’t had the best season to date, but he still is Justin Verlander. Porcello looked […]

Sox Lose Walk Off Style This Time

The Red Sox Just Keep on Losing

Brian Johnson- A Ray of Hope (Part 1)

A Western road trip to open the Red Sox second half of the season was just what the doctor did not order. Tuesday night’s 7-3 loss to Houston made it 6 losses in a row and 7 out of 8. Their record of 42-52 was the American League’s worst. The were now 10 behind the Yankees. […]
