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 traded [...]

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 [...]

Red Sox Drop 3 of 4 to Yankees as Lester Struggles – Fenway Park 7/9/12

Jon Lester fell to 5-6 after the Red Sox lost to the Yankees 7-3 on the last day of the 1st half of the 2012 MLB season.  It has been a long and frustrating 1st half for Boston. Injuries, poor play, more injuries, blah, blah, blah. The Yankees out-hit the Red Sox 14-7 on Sunday [...]

Red Sox Back to .500; Still Trail Yankees by 8 Games Though! – Fenway Park 6/18/12

The Red Sox salvaged the weekend series in Chicago by taking the final 2 games from the Cubs, but at 33-33, they still trail the AL-East-leading Yankees by a whopping 8 games.  Not good.  Throw in the fact that they just placed Josh Beckett on the DL with shoulder issues, this does not bode well [...]

Cubs Trip up Sox 3-0 in Opener of Historic Series at Wrigley Field – Fenway Park 6/15/12

The Cubs beat the Red Sox 3-0 in the opener of the much-anticipated series between Theo Epstein’s new team and his old team.  Ryan Dempster outdueled Daisuke Matsuzaka in another solid outing for the worst team in baseball – 7 scoreless innings, 4 hits, 2 walks and 3 K’s.  Maybe we should make a move [...]

Red Sox Back at .500 – On Good Streak – Fenway Park 5/23/12

The Red Sox took 2 of 3 from the 1st place Orioles at Camden Yards in Baltimore to move back to .500 and just 5.5 games back of the O’s.  It wasn’t always pretty, but the team has rallied and fought hard and continue to keep themselves in a position to compete until they get [...]

Lester, Beckett Dynamic Duo in Red Sox 2-Game Sweep of Mariners – Fenway Park 5/15/12

At last, the dynamic duo is back, as the Red Sox upped their season high winning streak to 5 games with a 5-0 win over the Mariners at Fenway Park this evening.  The win pushed the Red Sox to 17-19 on the season and things seem to be falling into place for the Red Sox [...]

At Last — Red Sox End Skid with 6-5 Win Over Twins – Fenway Park 4/24/12

It wasn’t pretty but the Red Sox ended their skid with a come from behind 6-5 win over the Twins in Minnesota on Monday night.  After building an early 3-0 lead, it was de ja vu all over again as the Twins rallied for 4 runs in the 4th and another run in the 5th [...]

Lester Tough Luck Loser in Series Finale Against Toronto – Fenway Park 4/11/12

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 and [...]

Beckett Against Fister in Game 2 of 2012 MLB Season – Fenway Park 4/7/12

The Red Sox need a complete game from Josh Beckett given their bullpen woes. Jon Lester pitched well in the Red Sox opening day 3-2 loss to the Tigers on Thursday, but the bullpen allowed runs in the 8th and 9th innings which sealed the Red Sox fate.  Beckett looks to get off to a [...]
