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 […]
Fenway Park was still buzzing from the weekend’s blockbuster trade, while Daisuke Matsuzaka looked like a new man as the Red Sox beat the Royals 5-1 at Fenway Park.
Matsuzaka pitched 7 strong innings – 1 unearned run, 5 hits, 2 walks and 6 K’s in only 101 pitches. Not bad.
The Red Sox […]
Jon Lester was the tough luck loser in the Red Sox 3-1 loss to the Blue Jays in Toronto on Wednesday. Lester was out-dueled by Ricky Romero who held the Red Sox to just 3 hits and 1 run on a Jacoby Ellsbury single in the 3rd inning.
Lester pitched an 8-inning complete game […]
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 […]
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 […]
It’s been a good week for Jacoby Ellsbury & Adrian Gonzalez. After each won a Gold Glove Award earlier this week, they each nabbed Silver Slugger Awards too. David Ortiz was also named a Silver Sluggers Award recipient to round out the trio.
What a great week – Go Sox!
Jacoby Ellsbury, Adrian Gonzalez and Dustin Pedroia each won Gold Glove Awards on Tuesday. The 28-year old Pedroia won his 1st ever AL Gold Glove Award for his defense in center field.
Gonzalez won his 3rd Gold Glove Award for his play at 1st base. He won with the Padres back in 2008 and […]
Given all the Francons/Epstein/Management issues the last few weeks, I thought I would focus on a “positive” today. Jacoby Ellsbury won the AL comeback player of the year award yesterday and there is a lot to be thankful for with the improved play of Ellsbury.
Ellsbury racked up a whopping 660 at-bats in 158 […]
Wow – that wasn’t fun. The Red Sox held on for an 8-7 win over the O’s and stayed tied with the Rays for the Al Wild Card Lead. Catcher Ryan Lavarnway – who has given the Red Sox a much-needed power boost behind the plate – homered twice in the win. His 3-run […]
Unbelievable – the O’s beat the Red Sox 6-3 on Monday pushing the Sox into a wild card tie with the Tampa Bay Rays with 2 games to play. The Red Sox have now lost 17 of their last 22 games. They led the Rays by 9 games when play started on September 3rd, […]
