Tim Wakefield Injury Update – All Good News

Good news Red Sox fans – Tim Wakefield’s back surgery (as we previously reported) is being called “successful.”  I’m never too sure exactly what that means when we’re dealing with an athlete going under the knife, but I guess it’s better than them coming out and saying that the surgery was “unsuccessful”. Wakefield was a [...]

Red Sox Coaches on the Move? Francona Hopes Not

With the managerial vacancy in Houston, Terry Francona wishes his coaches well during the interview process, but hopes they remain on his staff.  Red Sox coaches Brad Mills and Tim Bogar are still in the hunt for the Astros top coaching job.  Astros GM Ed Wade let Terry Francona go in Philadelphia – he often [...]

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 [...]

Tim Wakefield – Successful Back Surgery; 2010 Still in Plans

Tim Wakefield underwent successful back surgery to repair some loose fragments in his lower back.  After a stellar 1st half where he represented the Red Sox in the 2009 MLB All-Star Game, the back issues bothered him all through the 2nd half.  Wakefield had trouble walking and severe pain in his left leg.  The surgery [...]

Clay Buchholz Redy to Star in 2010

Clay Buchholz has had an interesting major league career – but any way you look at it – he has a bright MLB future ahead of him. In 2007, Buchholz made 4 appearances for the Red Sox at the end of the season.  In his 2nd career start on September 1st, 2007, he tossed a [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Kevin Youkilis – Mr. Dependable & Clutch in Post-Season

Kevin Youkilis is one of the Red Sox most consistent and dependable players.  Despite missing some time in 2009 with injuries and a suspension, Youkilis has still put up solid numbers.  Youkilis has racked up 491 at-bats in 136 games, and he has a .306 batting average with a .413 on-base percentage.  Youkilis has 94 [...]
