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 [...]

After wrapping up a 3-4 road trip in Tampa and Chicago, the Red Sox are looking forward to a return to Fenway Park for a nice 8-game home stand spaced out over 10 days.  The Red Sox will have an off-day in between each series. The Red Sox took 2 of 3 from the Rays, [...]

Lester, Wagner, Papelbon Propel Red Sox to Big 8-4 Win Over Rays

That loud noise you heard Tuesday night in Tampa was a huge collective sigh of relief as the Red Sox beat the Rays 8-4 in Tampa for only their 2nd win there this season.  It wasn’t easy.  Leading 7-2 heading to the bottom of the 8th inning, the usually reliable Hideki Okajima didn’t retire any [...]

Roller Coaster Ride of a Win for Red Sox Over White Sox

Jon Lester took another frustrating no decision on Tuesday night at Fenway Park.  Lester thought he got out of a 2nd and 3rd, 1 out jam in the top of the 7th inning when he struck out Alexei Ramirez for what should have been the 3rd out.  But the ball bounced away from Jason Varitek [...]
