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 [...]

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 [...]

Will Bay Stay in Boston – Only Time Will Tell

One of the biggest questions for the Red Sox this off-season will be whether or not Jason Bay will be patrolling left field again in 2010.  Both sides have indicated that they want to get a deal done, but Bay is eligible for free agency 15 days after the end of the World Series and [...]

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 [...]

Francona, Red Sox Announce ALDS Roster

There were a few surprising moves as Manager Terry Francona and GM Theo Epstein announced the Red Sox ALDS roster today.  The Red Sox opted to go with Paul Byrd as the 11th man in the bullpen – presumably as a long reliever in case one of the Red Sox starters had any injury issues.  [...]

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 [...]

Red Sox Get Youkilis Back; Martinez Acquisition Paying Off

Kevin Youkilis will be back in the Red Sox lineup against the Blue Jays on Tuesday night in Toronto.  Youkilis decided to serve the 5 game suspension handed down for charging the mound against Rick Porcello last week at Fenway Park after Porcello plunked Youkilis early in the game.  It was the 2nd night in [...]

Ouch – Yankees Rock Smoltz’s World in 13-6 Loss in the Big Apple

John Smoltz’s short-lived tenure with the Boston Red Sox is officially over.  Smoltz gave up 8 earned runs on 9 hits and 4 walks (including 2 HR’s) over 3 1/3 innings, as the Red Sox lost the series opener in the Bronx 13-6.  The Red Sox designated Smoltz for assignment today.  Wow what a disaster [...]
