Reality Sets in for Sox Players – Season is Over

Reality has finally sunk in for several Red Sox players.  After a tumultuous season, the Red Sox felt good going into the 2009 post-season.  They finished strong at home winning their final 4 games at Fenway Park, and they set up their rotation to go with their 2 best pitchers in Games 1 and 2 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Rough Night in Boston, Red Sox 1 Game Away from Clinching

It has been a rough 4 games stretch for the Red Sox.  After being swept by the Yankees in NY, Josh Beckett couldn’t go against the Blue Jays at Fenway Park and Michael Bowden got roughed up for 7 runs in just 3 innings of work in a last-minute starting opportunity.  Beckett was bothered by [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Greinke, Royals Pester Red Sox with 2nd Straight Loss in Kansas City…

This is getting old.  Zach Greinke and the Royals made it 2 in a row on Tuesday night with a 5-1 win over the Red Sox.  Ouch.  Any chance of winning the AL East is slowly slipping away as the Yankees defeated the Angels 6-5 in Anaheim.  The Red Sox now trail the Yankees by [...]
