Red Sox Looking for Next Japanese Pitching Sensation – Yusei Kikuchi

The Red Sox, like other MLB teams, are going to make a run at 18-year old sensation Yusei Kikuchi.  Kukichi is an 18-year old prep school player whose fastball already reaches 96 MPH.  WOW! The Red Sox have an excellent track record with Japanese pitchers – Hideki Okajima, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Junichi Tazawa – and they [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Daisuke Sharp in Red Sox 6-2 Win over Indians

It wasn’t perfect, but Daisuke surely ended his 2009 regular season on a high note in Friday night’s 6-2 win over the Indians at Fenway Park.  Matsuzaka pitched 6 solid innings, giving up just 2 ER on 5 hits and 3 walks.  Matsuzaka struck out 7 batters and has lowered his ERA under 6.00 (5.76) [...]

Winning Recipe – Red Sox End Skid behind Lester & ‘Pen

Finally – the Red Sox winning recipe finally came back to fruition on Thursday night behind a solid outing by Jon Lester.  Lester proved that he was fine after getting hit with a line drive in last Friday night’s loss to the Yankees in New York.  Lester threw 84 pitches and came out of the [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
