Crawford’s Walk-Off Double Wins Game for Red Sox Again – Fenway Park 5/10/11

Carl Crawford came through with another walk-off hit in less than 10 days as the Red Sox rallied to beat the Twins 2-1 in 11 innings.  Jed Lowrie drew a 1-out walk in the 11th inning and Jose Iglesias pinch-ran for Lowrie in a smart move by Manager Terry Francona.  Carl Crawford hit a double [...]

Say Goodbye to the Winning Streak – Red Sox Drop Road Trip Opener – Fenway Park 4/20/11

The Red Sox wasted John Lackey’s 1st good start of the 2011 MLB schedule, losing to the A’s 5-0 in Oakland.  Lackey pitched 6 effective innings, scattering just 1 ER on 4 hits and 1 walk during his outing.  Lackey gave up his lone run in the 1st inning on a David DeJesus ground out.  [...]

Albers, Reyes In; Okajima, Aceves Out – Fenway Park Fort Myers FL 3/28/11

Matt Albers and Dennys Reyes have made the red Sox 2011 opening day roster as relievers.  Both Albers and Reyes earned it with solid springs, but it was also easier for Manager Terry Francona and the Red Sox to keep both releivers because neither play had options remaining to be sent down to the minor [...]

No Starters, No Matter – Red Sox Top Yankees 2-1 – Fenway Park Fort Myers FL 3/15/11

Neither the Red Sox nor the Yankees used a starter in the Red Sox 2-1 ho-hum win over the New York Yankees on Monday night in Fort Myers.  Former Yankees pitcher Alfredo Aceves started for the Red Sox and tossed 3 innings of 1 run ball.  He gave up 3 hits and 1 walk while [...]

Beckett Pitches Great, Then Beaned In Batting Practice – Fenway Park Fort Myers Florida 2/28/11

Josh Beckett and Clay Buchholz both looked sharp in their spring training debuts against the Minnesota Twins on Sunday in Florida.  But now the immediate concern is on Beckett’s health after getting hit on the side of the head during batting practice this morning before today’s game against the Twins. Beckett was in short left [...]

Okajima Takes Roster Spt From Max Ramirez; Cubs Claim Ramirez — Fenway Park 1/10/11

Interesting – the Red Sox claimed Max Ramirez off of waivers from the Texas Rangers on January 5th.  Less than a week later, the Red Sox had to release Ramirez to make room for Hideki Okajima who signed a 1-year, $1.75 million deal which became official today.  Then the Cubs immediately claimed Ramirez off of [...]

Boston Red Sox Sign Hideki Okajima to 1-Year Deal — Fenway Park 1/3/11

The Boston Red Sox have signed Hideki Okajima to a 1-year deal for the 2011 MLB schedule.  In 4 seasons with the Red Sox from 2007-2010, Okajima went 16-8 with a 3.06 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and a .238 batting average against.  His best season was the 2007 MLB season when the Red Sox won their [...]

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 [...]

Daisuke Shines, But Red Sox Lose Late — Red Sox 3, Yankees 4 9/26/10

Oh so close, but the Red Sox season came to a close when Jonathan Papelbon blew another save against the Yankees in the 9th inning and Hideki Okajima lost the game in the 10th inning. Playoff Watch – Yankees 4-3 win over Red Sox — 6.5 games lead over Red Sox. Rays 6-2 loss to [...]

Weekend Starts off with a Band, Ends with a Whimper in Tampa — Red Sox 2, Rays 3 Saturday 8/28/10 & Red Sox 3, Rays 5 Sunday 8/29/10

Is the season over — it’s hard to think that it’s not, but the Red Sox didn’t make it easy on themselves with the series loss over the weekend in Tampa.  After Jon Lester and Victor Martinez led the team to a satusfying win on Friday night, the Red Sox had high hopes for the [...]
