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 [...]

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 [...]

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, Lester Cruise Past O’s Again

The Red Sox turned a back-and-forth close game into a blow out with 8 total runs in the 7th and 8th innings. At 88-59, the Red Sox trail the Yankees by 6 games in the AL East, but lead the Rangers by 7 games in the AL Wild Card race.

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Bullpen Fails, Red Sox Fall to Rays 8-5

For the 2nd straight night, the Red Sox bullpen got into trouble, and this time, Jonathan Papelbon couldn’t do anything to clean up the mess.  Ramon Ramirez and Manny Delcarmen failed miserably in the bottom of the 8th inning on Wednesday night, combining to retire only 1 of the 5 batters that they faced.  Ramirez [...]
