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 […]
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 […]
Should we start to panic in Beantown? The Red Sox just dropped their 6th straight game – 12-0 to the Blue Jays. Wakefield looked bad (5 ER on 7 hits and 2 walks in just 3 innings). The bullpen did not fare much better – Fernando Cabrera, Manny Delcarmen, Hideki Okajima and back-up catcher […]
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 […]
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 continue their weekend series against the White Sox in Chicago. Here’s a brief re-cap:
Friday 9/4 – White Sox 12, Red Sox 2. The White Sox pounded out 12 runs and 20 hits against Paul Byrd and Junichi Tazawa in the game’s 1st 4 innings. Tazawa’s WHIP is now a hefty 2.05?! […]
Paul Byrd looks to put an exclamation point on a solid 10-game home stand for the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Sunday. The Red Sox have won 6 of 9 games on the current home stand and look to make it 7 on Sunday in the weekend series finale against the Blue Jays. […]
It was a busy day for the Red Sox on Thursday – not all of it good.
The Red Sox welcomed reliever Billy Wagner into the clubhouse just 11 months removed from having Tommy John elbow surgery. After thinking that he may never pitch again, Wagner finds himself joining the Red Sox and one […]
It hasn’t been the best of years for David “Big Papi” Ortiz, but he had reason – 2 in fact – to celebrate in Wednesday night’s 3-2 over the White Sox at Fenway Park. Big Papi hit 2 solo home runs in the game – the 1st tied the game at 1 in the […]
Wow – couldn’t even post on Sunday and I’m not even sure where to start here today. I don’t think that this 2009 Red Sox club is that bad that it will crawl up into a fetal position, suck its “collective thumbs” and hope the nightmare just passes without anymore tears or fears. Manager […]
