Red Sox Trade Marco Scutaro to Rockies for Clayton Mortensen – Wrigley Field 1/27/12

The Red Sox traded Marco Scutaro earlier this week to the Colorado Rockies for starting pitcher Clayton Mortensen.  Scutaro was to start at shortstop for the Red Sox in 2012, but now he will play 2nd base for the Rockies and likely bat 2nd in the order. Mortensen came over from the St. Louis Cardinals [...]

Red Sox Exercise $6 Million Option for Marco Scutaro – Fenway Park 10/31/11

The Red Sox exercised the $6 million club option for Marco Scutaro’s shortstop services in 2012.  Scutaro was the team’s lone offensive bright spot down the stretch – hitting .387 during the final month of the season.  During the last decade only Manny Ramirez (.396 batting average in 2002) and David Ortiz (.396 batting average [...]

Red Sox Out-Last Rays 1-0 in 16 Innings in Tampa – Fenway Park 7/18/11

Not the way you want to play on get-away day, especially when it’s Sunday Night ESPN baseball and you have a game in Baltimore the next night.  The Red Sox out-lasted the Rays in 16 innings last night/this morning, beating the Rays 1-0 on Dustin Pedroia’s 2-out single.  Josh Reddick led off the inning with [...]

The Red Sox crushed the Brewers 12-3 to take the rubber game of the 3-game weekend series at Fenway Park.  The Red Sox used a 14-hit attack to get to Brewers’ ace Yovany Gallardo early with a 6-run 1st inning and they never took their foot off the pedal.  They also scored 6 more runs [...]

Lester, Bats Power Red Sox to Big 7-4 Win Over Angels – Fenway Park 5/4/11

Slowly, but surely, the Red Sox are finally putting it together.  Jon Lester has been impressive and the Red Sox are finally getting some great clutch hitting.

Lester Lackluster Effort Against Braves in Orlando – Fenway Park 3/17/11

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Red Sox fans.  Let’s hope Jon Lester pitches better on opening day than he did against the Braves in yesterday’s 4-3 spring training loss in Orlando.  Lester couldn’t get out of the 5th inning as he surrendered 2 runs in the frame to stake the Braves to a 3-1 lead.  Lester [...]

Scutaro Healthy & Ready For Big 2011 — Fenway Park 2/19/11

Look out AL East – not that Marcoo Scutaro is healthy, he is ready to do some damage.  Somehow, some way, Marco Scutaro racked up a career high 632 at-bats despite playing with several injuries in 2010 — a pinched nerve in his neck, a sore left elbow and a right rotator cuff issue.  Scutaro [...]
