Red Sox Snap 7-Game Skid with Come-From-Behind 4-3 Win Over Mariners – Fenway Park 9/4/12

The Red Sox ended their 7-game losing streak with a dramatic come-from-behind 4-3 win over the Mariners in Seattle.  Cody Ross stroked a game-tying 3-run homer in the 6th inning that ties the game at 3.  And 2 outs later, Ryan Lavarnway gave the Red Sox their first lead of the series with his 1st [...]

Closer Andrew Bailey Needs Surgery on Right Thumb – Fenway Park 4/3/12

Wow – this is not good – looks like Andrew Bailey is going to need surgery to repair a ligament in his right thumb.  The injury occurred back on March 21st, but Bailey continued to pitch despite the discomfort.  Recovery from a ulnar collateral ligament surgery typically takes about 3 months, so Bailey is going [...]

Lester, Bailey Struggle in 6-5 Loss to Pirates – Fenway Park 3/23/12

Jon Lester had another ho-hum start in the Red Sox 6-5 loss to the Pirates on Thursday.  Lester worked just 3 innings, giving up 4 ER on 8 hits and 2 walks.  Not a very good sign that Lester can’t make it past the 3rd inning at this point in the spring.  Let’s hope he [...]

Red Sox Agree with Jacoby Ellsbury; Still Far Apart with Big Papi – Fenway Park 1/18/12

The Red Sox and Jaocby Ellsbury agreed to a 1-year, $8.05 million deal for the 2012 MLB season, thereby avoiding arbitration.  Ellsbury had a monster 2011 and deserved the big raise from his “modest” $2.4 million salary. On the other side of the spectrum, however, the Red Sox and David Ortiz are still $4 million [...]

Andrew Bailey – Is He The Answer? Fenway Park 12/31/11

Wow – I did not realize that Bailey is as injury prone as his numbers show.  42 games in 2011; 47 games in 2010.  Not good.  His WHIP and ERA have gone up in each season since he broke out on the scene with a stellar 2009 season – 68 games, 6-3 record, 26 saves, [...]

Red Sox Acquire A’s Closer Andrew Bailey – Fenway Park 12/29/11

The Red Sox have acquired Andrew Bailey from the Oakland A’s in exchange for Josh Reddick, infielder Miles Head and pitcher Raul Alcantra.  The Red Sox also picked up outfielder Ryan Sweeney from the A’s. We’ll have more on this in the upcoming days, but it looks like the Red Sox have really upgraded the [...]

Mark Melancon Adds Versatility to Red Sox Bullpen – Fenway Park 12/15/11

The Red Sox acquired Mark Melancon in a trade with the Houston Astros for Jed Lowrie and Kyle Weiland.  Melancon is a strong, young (26-years old) pitcher who will be under the team’s control for the next 4 years. Melancon made 71 appearances for the Astros in 2011 – 20 saves, 2.78 ERA, 66 K’s, [...]
