Let’s Put a Rest to Papelbon Trade Rumors

I’m sick of all of these Jonathan Papelbon trade rumors.  The Red Sox would be dumb to try to move Papelbon, and I don’t think Owner John Henry, GM Theo Epstein or Manager Terry Francona are too dumb…  Do you? Sure, Papelbon blew Game 3 of the ALDS against the Angels by giving up the [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Beckett, Ortiz lead Red Sox to Must-Win 9-2 Victory over Royals

It’s about time – the bats finally came back to life and Josh Beckett worked hard to shut down the Royals and pick up his 16th win of the 2009 MLB schedule.  After falling behind 2-0 in the 4th inning, the Red Sox rallied for 6 runs in the 5th inning to take control of [...]

Buchholz, Bay Lead Red Sox to 3-1 Win Over O’s

Clay Buchholz won his 6th game of 2009 as the Red Sox opened their 10-game road trip with a 3-1 win over the O’s in Baltimore.  Buchholz pitched 6 innings of 1-run ball, giving up just 5 hits and 3 walks with 1 strikeout.  Daniel Bard, Hideki Okajima and Jonathan Papelbon each pitched a scoreless [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
