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 […]

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 […]

Make it 2 in a row – as the Red Sox dropped a laugher to the Royals at Fenway Park – 12-5 on Friday night.

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 […]

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.  […]

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

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 […]
