Red Sox Finish 2009 with 4-game Sweep of Indians @ Fenway Park

The end product was great – 4 straight wins over the Indians to close out the season – but there are still a few areas of concern.  The Red Sox clubbed 5 home runs in Sunday’s 12-7 win – 2 from J.D. Drew and 1 each from Dustin Pedroia, Jed Lowrie and Alex Gonzalez.  But [...]

Should we Start to Panic? Red Sox Drop 6th Straight Game

Should we start to panic in Beantown?  The Red Sox just dropped their 6th straight game – 12-0 to the Blue Jays.  Wakefield looked bad (5 ER on 7 hits and 2 walks in just 3 innings).  The bullpen did not fare much better – Fernando Cabrera, Manny Delcarmen, Hideki Okajima and back-up catcher Dusty [...]

Red Sox Rebound in Kansas City; Eyes Set on the Yankees in the Bronx

Clay Buchholz made sure that the Red Sox wouldn’t lose the series to the Royals in Kansas City.  Buchholz pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings, giving up just 5 hits along the way.  Buchholz had 8 K’s and no walks and has really impressed of late.  Buchholz is now 7-3 on the season with a 3.21 [...]

Dice-K Delivers Part Deux as Red Sox Sweep O’s; Yankees Back in Sight!

The Red Sox defeated the Orioles 9-3 on Sunday completing a 3-game weekend series sweep.  The Red Sox won 16 of 18 games against Batimore during the 2009 MLB schedule.  The Red Sox scored in each of the 1st 4 innings of the game to open up a 7-0 lead.  And Daisuke Matsuzaka did the [...]

Red Sox Have Mental Edge Over Angels; Scioscia, Fuentes & Co. Cry Babies…

Wah, wah, wah… That’s the noise you heard coming from the Angels dugout after the Red Sox rallied for a 3rd time to win 9-8 in the 9th inning at Fenway Park.  Gimme a break – don’t put your team in a position to lose, and then you don’t have to bitch about “bad umpiring”. [...]

Daisuke Magical as Red Sox Continue to Roll…

I didn’t see this one coming – 6 scoreless innings from Dasiuke Matsuzaka as he pitched into the 7th inning – – unbelievable!!!  If Matsuzaka is truly healthy and really has his stuff figured out, the Red Sox could be ready to roll right into the Fall Classic in October.  I am giddy! Loved the [...]

Rays Officially Give Up; Red Sox Sweep Rays @ Fenway Park

Ouch… Looks like the Rays have officially given up.  The Red Sox swept the Rays on Sunday (3-1; 4-0), sending the Rays to their 11th straight defeat.  The Rays now trail the Yankees by 19.5 games in the AL East race and the Red Sox by 12.5 games in the AL Wild Card race.  This [...]

Rain Can’t Keep Red Sox from Crushing Rays @ Fenway Park

Josh Beckett finally looked like himself again, and the Red Sox used an 8-run 3rd inning to pick up a rain-shortened 9-1 over the Rays on Saturday night at Fenway Park. Josh Beckett picked up his 15th win of the 2009 schedule, and got credit for a complete game as the game was called after [...]

Home Sweet Home – Buchholz, Bats Crush Orioles 10-0 @ Fenway Park

The Red Sox sure love playing at Fenway Park!  With their 10-0 win over the Orioles on Tuesday night, the Red Sox are now 46-21 at home.  Only the New York Yankees (48-20) have a better home record during the 2009 MLB season than the Red Sox. Clay Buchholz didn’t have trouble holding onto this [...]

WOW – talk about a solid emergency start from Paul Byrd – 6 shutout innings, only 3 hits and 3 walks with 83 efficient pitches.  Holler!  The bullpen also shined in the Red Sox 7-0 win over the Blue Jays, as they complete a weekend series sweep of the Jays and a 7-3 home stand [...]
