The Red Sox and Ryan Dempster have finally agreed on a 2-year, $26.5 million deal (after rejecting the Red Sox’ $25 million offer last week). Dempster wanted a 3-year deal, but he eventually agreed to more money but for only 2 years. Dempster had been with the Chicago Cubs for 9 seasons before being […]
On the heels of the Mike Napoli signing, the Red Sox also completed the same deal for Shane Victorino last week. Victorino will platrol right field at Fenway Park for the Red Sox for the next 3 years and he’ll make $39 million for doing so. Not a bad move for either side. Right […]
You have to give the Red Sox credit for battling through an 8-6 win over the 1st place Orioles in Camden Yards in Baltimore on Monday night. After taking 2 of 3 from the Phillies over the weekend, this was definitely a potential let-down game. But with a chance to get back to .500 […]
The Red Sox are in a funk – plain and simple. Clay Buchholz needs to pick up his teammates tonight with a strong outing against the AL Central-leading Cleveland Indians.
While most of the city was rejoicing the Celtics taking out the Atlanta Hawks in Round 1 over at the Garden, there were a […]
It wasn’t pretty, but a win is a win, as the Red Sox hung on for a 7-6 win and a sweep of the Twins in Minneapolis. Clay Buchholz notched win number 2, but he needed some help in the 6th as he ran out of juice. Buchholz cruised through 5 innings of 1-run […]
The Red Sox celebrated the 100th anniversary of the 1st game played at Fenway Park today in fine fashion. The club brought back over 200 former players and partied all day long – up until game time that is. The Yankees clubbed 5 solo homers against Clay Buchholz in only 6 innings of work […]
Clay Buchholz was mediocre in his final spring start of 2012 – an 8-7 Red Sox win over the Nationals in Washington DC. Buchholz did strike out 5 without issuing a walk, but he also gave up 4 ER on 4 hits, including home runs from Ian Desmond and Wilson Ramos. Sure the Nationals […]
Manager Bobby Valentine has named Jon Lester his opening day starter against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park on April 5th. Lester has had a good spring, but Valentine revealed that this decision was actually made long ago – when Valentine 1st met Josh Beckett in Texas back on New Year’s Day. Here’s what […]
Clay Buchholz couldn’t keep the mojo going on Friday, as he gave up 2 ER on 3 hits in 3 innings of the Red Sox 7-4 loss to the Pirates on Friday. Buchholz had tossed 2 scoreless innings in his 1st spring start.
On the positive side, the Red Sox racked up 12 hits, […]
The Red Sox could be close to signing veteran starter Hiroki Kuroda to a short-term deal. Kuroda would fill in the 4-5 slot along side Daniel Bard and after Josh Beckett, Clay Buchholz and Jon Lester. Kuroda is durable despite being 36-years old – he has made at least 30 starts in each of […]
