Felix Doubront and the Red Sox look to rebound against A.J.

Happy 100th Birthday Fenway Park – Red Sox Lose to Yankees 6-2 – Fenway Park

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 and [...]

How Will Theo Epstein Reconstruct Shaky Bullpen? Fenway Park 11/10/10

How will Theo Epstein effectively and efficiently reconstruct the Red Sox bullpen for the 2011 MLB schedule?  It is not an easy question to answer.  After having the 2nd best bullpen ERA in 2009 (3.80), the Red Sox bullpen collapsed in 2010.  Hideki Okajima was awful, Manny Delcarmen and Ramon Ramirez pitched themselves out of [...]

Beckett, Offense Misfire against O’s @ Camden Yards — Red Sox 2, Orioles 5 – 8/31/10

Josh Beckett put the Red Sox in an early 3-0 hole after 3 innings, and the Red Sox could never recover against young O’s lefty Brian Matusz.  Beckett ended up yielding those lone 3 runs through his 7 inning outing, but it wasn’t the shutdown performance that the club was looking for. Playoff Watch – [...]

Ouch – Wakefield A Disaster as Red Sox Drop Game 1 After Break – Red Sox 2, Rangers 7 7/15/10

Not the way the Red Sox wanted to start the 2nd half – with a 7-2 disappointing loss to the Rangers at Fenway Park.  It really makes you wonder if the Red Sox will be able to hold on and stay close enough before the big guns get back. A 6-run 1st inning did in [...]
