Frustrating 10th Inning Leads to Red Sox Loss — Red Sox 4, A’s 5 – 7/20/10

That was a tough loss on Tuesday night.  We had double the hits that the A’s did, yet still lost 5-4 in 10 innings.  So painful… That “phantom” balk call in the 10th inning on Ramon Ramirez clearly set up the game-winning single by Kevin Kouzmanoff.  If the balk doesn’t move Daric Barton over to [...]

2-Game Skid Knocks Red Sox out of Wild Card Lead – Red Sox 5, Rays 6 – 7/5/10

The last 2 days have not gone the way the Red Sox envisioned.  Especially after racing out to a 5-1 4th inning lead over the Rays in Tampa, the 6-5 loss yesterday was tough to swallow. The Good — Eric Patterson – batting 2nd and playing left field, Patterson had 3 hits including solo home [...]

Dice-K, Red Sox Can’t Tame Rays for 2nd Straight Night – Red Sox 4, Rays 9 – 6/30/10

The Red Sox lost to the Rays 9-4 on Wednesday night at Fenway Park. The OK — Daisuke Matsuzaka – 3 ER on 4 hits and 4 walks over 6 innings.  The lead-off walk in the 4th inning started the 3-run rally for the Rays. The Bad — Manny Delcarmen – he faced 5 batters [...]

What is Going on Here?!?! – Red Sox Drop 2nd Straight Game to Royals

Make it 2 in a row – as the Red Sox dropped a laugher to the Royals at Fenway Park – 12-5 on Friday night. Tim Wakefield looked atrocious as the Royals pounded out 20 hits against Wakefield and 3 relievers. The Bad — Wakefield’s line — 12 ER on 9 hits and 3 walks. [...]

Clay Buchholz Shines in 8-inning, 1-run gem over Blue Jays

Clay Buchholz is once again settling in, showing the Red Sox brass that he can be a consistent starting pitcher for years to come.  The Red Sox had taxed their bullpen in a tense weekend series against the Baltimore Orioles over the weekend, and then again during Monday night’s slugfest in which Josh Beckett lasted [...]

Poor Pitching in Red Sox 9-9 Tie with Rays

Pitching deserted the Red Sox in their 9-9 tie with the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday. Young prospect Casey Kelly struggled in his 3 innings – 2 ER on 4 hits and 2 walks, with 4 K’s. Ramon Ramirez gave up 5 more hits and 2 more hits in his 2 innings of work.  Ramirez’s [...]

Two Split Squad Losses for Red Sox on Monday

The Red Sox pounded out 17 runs and 28 hits in 2 split squad losses on Monday, but the pitching left a lot to be desired.  In the 13-8 loss to the Cardinals, a 7-run 8th inning off of Ramon Ramirez and T.J. Large doomed the Sox.  Ramirez has been downright awful this year – [...]

Jonathan Papelbon, Manny Delcarmen, Ramon Ramirez & Jeremy Hermida File for Arbitration

Four Red Sox players filed for arbitration on Friday – Jonathan Papelbon, Manny Delcarmen, Ramon Ramirez and Jeremy Hermida.  The Red Sox and each of the 4 players have until Tuesday to reach an agreement on a new contract.  If the 2 sides do not reach an agreement then each side will submit a dollar [...]

Red Sox Sign Hideki Okajima to 1-year, $2.75 Million Deal

The Boston Red Sox agreed to a 1-year, $2.75 million deal with reliever Hideki Okajima this week.  There are also incentive bonuses in place based upon the number of appearances Okajima makes during the 2010 MLB schedule – an additional $50,000 @ 55 games, 60 games, 65 games and 70 games.  Red Sox GM Theo [...]

Red Sox – Arbitration-Eligible Contracts to be Tendered this Weekend

The Boston Red Sox are expected to offer contracts to all but one of their arbitration-eligible players for the 2010 MLB schedule.  The lone exception is likely Brian Anderson who the team acquired mid-year from the Chicago White Sox in a deal sending Mark Kotsay to the midwest.  With the off-season trade for Jeremy Hermida [...]
