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 [...]

Should we Start to Panic? Red Sox Drop 6th Straight Game

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 Dusty [...]

Red Sox Trending in Wrong Direction with 5th Straight Loss

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 October [...]

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?!  [...]

Lester, no Byrd?!, Looks to Complete Solid Home Stand @ Fenway Park

Red Sox Activate Wagner, Waive Penny & Lose to White Sox 9-5

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 of [...]

Big Papi, Big Hero – Red Sox Win 3-2 on Walk-Off Bomb

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 2nd [...]

Red Sox Limp Home Bloodied and Battered… Where Does it Go from Here?

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 Terry [...]
