Billy Wagner – Waffling on 2010 MLB Plans

Right after the Angels eliminated the Red Sox from 2009 post-season play this past Sunday, Billy Wagner indicated that he was going to hang it up after a successful major league career.  But now Wagner’s agent – Bean Stringfellow – has come out stating that Wagner is still mulling his options.  “[Wagner] has every intention [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

This one is going to hurt – the Red Sox blew an 8-2 lead and ended up losing to the Royals 12-9 in Kansas City.  With the Yankees losing to the Angels on the west coast, the Red Sox blew a golden opportunity to cut the AL East lead to just 4 games with a [...]

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 [...]

Martinez, Wagner, Papelbon Lead Red Sox to Victory @ Fenway Park

The Red Sox completed a 2-game sweep of the Orioles with a 7-5 win at Fenway Park on Wednesday night.  Victor Martinez came through with the clutch hit – a 3-run pinch-hit double with 1 out in the bottom of the 7th inning that broke a 4-4 tie. Billy Wagner pitched a perfect top of [...]

Mission Accomplished – Red Sox Win Series Over Rays in Tampa

As it good as it gets in Tampa for the Red Sox – – the Red Sox defeated the Rays 6-3 on Thursday’s get away day, and took 2 of 3 from the Rays in Tampa.  It was a total team effort. Clay Buchholz toughed out a rough 1st inning in which he allowed 2 [...]

Red Sox on a Roll Despite Beckett’s Struggles…

The Blue Jays roughed up Josh Beckett again, but the Red Sox rallied for a 6-5 win Friday night at Fenway Park.  It was the Red Sox 4th win in 5 games, and their 8th win in 11 games. Beckett struggled with his control all night long – needing 108 pitches to labor through 5 [...]
