Clay Buchholz Redy to Star in 2010

Clay Buchholz has had an interesting major league career – but any way you look at it – he has a bright MLB future ahead of him. In 2007, Buchholz made 4 appearances for the Red Sox at the end of the season.  In his 2nd career start on September 1st, 2007, he tossed a [...]

John Farrell Staying Put as Red Sox Pitching Coach

After rumors started swirling about Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell possibly leaving Boston for the Cleveland Indians Manager post, Farrell made it official on Wednesday that he is staying right where he is.  “It’s an honor to be considered for the job… Especially for a team that I played for, my father played for [...]

Reality Sets in for Sox Players – Season is Over

Reality has finally sunk in for several Red Sox players.  After a tumultuous season, the Red Sox felt good going into the 2009 post-season.  They finished strong at home winning their final 4 games at Fenway Park, and they set up their rotation to go with their 2 best pitchers in Games 1 and 2 [...]

Red Sox Out in Shocking Fashion – 7-6 9th Inning Loss @ Fenway Park

I’m still finding it hard to believe that the Red Sox are out of the playoffs.  The way it ended on Sunday afternoon was just shocking.  The Angels rallied for 5 runs in the final innings, including 3 runs off of closer Jonathan Papelbon in the 9th to pull off the improbably 7-6 win at [...]

3-Run 7th Inning Does Red Sox in; Trail Angels 2-0…

Wow – this really isn’t the way the Red Sox drew it up.  The Red Sox bats have disappeared and 1 inning has done in each of Jon Lester and Josh Beckett in the 1st 2 games of the ALDS against the Angels in Anaheim.  Not good. First the bats – the Red Sox managed [...]

Not the Way the Red Sox Drew it Up; Shutout in Anaheim

It was not how the Red Sox envisioned Game 1 going – John Lackey outdueling Jon Lester in a 5-0 shutout.  The Red Sox had almost as many errors (3) as hits (4) and Lester was not his usual composed self.  The Angels Bobby Abreu should have been handed the game ball even though he [...]

Lester, Beckett to Pace Red Sox against Angels in ALDS

Manager Terry Francona has decided to go with Jon Lester against the Angels in Game 1 of the ALDS.  How can you fault him?  Lester has made 32 starts in 2009, going 15-8 with a 3.41 ERA and 1.23 WHIP.  His 225 K’s are the most by any left-handed pitcher in all of baseball.  It [...]

Buchholz Looks to Finish Strong in Final 2009 Start

Clay Buchholz is going for win #8 in the Red Sox regular season finale against the Cleveland Indians on Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park.  Buchholz has compiled a solid 7-4 record with a 3.74 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 12 2009 starts.  Buchholz has pitched well of late and looks to erase any memory of [...]

Red Sox Trending in Wrong Direction with 5th Straight Loss

Things looked to be going so well for the Red Sox, and then another awful trip to the Bronx turned things south.  The Red Sox dropped a tough one to the Blue Jays 8-7 and have now lost 5 games in a row.  Not the way you want to be playing as you approach October [...]

Red Sox Gear up for Final Homestand of 2009 MLB Schedule @ Fenway Park

While it has been a frustrating 2009 MLB schedule for the Red Sox, they will have a shot to prove themselves in October as the AL Wild Card representative against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.  The Red Sox will look to make a memorable impression for their fans during the final regular season homestand [...]
