Pawtucket Red Sox Box Score Overview It’s a shame that Iglesias is off to such a poor start, as Mike Aviles has been pretty terrible too. Lavarnway also has struggled early, going 0-4 today and hitting .167 so far. Middlebrooks wasn’t bad today, going 1-4 witha a strikeout. The PawSox were shut down offensively today, with the only PawSox players with good games are Che-Hsuan Lin and Alex Hassan. Hassan had another quality game, going 0-2 but getting 2 walks. Lin was also good, going 1-3 with a walk. Junichi Tazawa had another great game, going 2 innings while allowing 3 hits, no runs, and striking out one. His success so far makes me wonder why Justin Thomas is on the 25 man roster while Tazawa isn’t. Hopefully that changes soon as Tazawa has been pitching lights out this year. Portland Sea  Dogs Box Score Overview The Sea Dogs struggled again, losing 8-3 and falling to 0-5. Vitek was hitless, though he did have a walk. Brentz went 1-4 with a walk and Oscar Tejeda had yet ano...

Red Sox Manager Bobby Valentine Already on Hot Seat in Boston?

New Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine is not off to the sort of start that anyone wanted to see, especially considering how disappointing last season finished. But after just three games, could Valentine already be on the managerial hot seat? It may sound ridiculous, but there is a little bit of truth to that belief. Valentine already had his detractors even before...

Red Sox May Have to Overpay to Re-Sign Jacoby Ellsbury If Center Fielder Puts Up Monster Numbers Again

The Red Sox aren't exactly off to a good start, and much of Red Sox Nation already has plenty of questions about how this team will fare this season. The talent level on the Sox is undeniable, but with a 1-4 record through five games, the beginning of this season is eerily similar to the end of last season. That's not a good thing. There's still plenty of reasons to be...

Scout: Beckett was the wost I've ever seen him

From ESPN Boston: DETROIT -- Other notes, quotes and gloats before the third game of the season:* One major-league scout watching Saturday's game said that was the worst he had ever seen Josh Beckett pitch. "He topped out at 92,'' the scout said. "And he must have thrown 15 center cuts -- you can't do that.'' Center cut is jargon for cut fastballs...

Nick Punto Starting at Shortstop, David Ortiz Batting Cleanup for Daniel Bard's First Start

The shuffling of the lineup continues. Two days after hitting leadoff, Nick Punto is penciled in the nine hole to give Mike Aviles a breather at shortstop after the shortstop twisted his ankle. In the process, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine also flip-flopped designated hitter David Ortiz and third baseman Kevin Youkilis in the cleanup and fifth spots, a day after Youkilis hit fourth...

Josh Beckett, Clay Buchholz Need to Be Much Better to Take Pressure Off Back End of Red Sox Rotation

This is why the top of the Red Sox rotation is so important. It is vital that the Big Three of Jon Lester, Josh Beckett and Clay Buchholz pitch well this season. There's too much uncertainty surrounding the back end of the rotation. Felix Doubront and Daniel Bard have three major league starts on their combined resumes. Bard hasn't served as a starter since he was pitching...

Vicente Padilla a Bright Spot for Red Sox Pitching Staff Going Into Toronto Matchup (Video)

It was a first few games to forget for most of the Red Sox' pitchers, but Vicente Padilla did his job for Boston. Padilla came on in relief for Boston on Sunday and went four sparkling innings, allowing no runs as Boston's offense continued to produce. The rest of the staff blew two saves and allowed 13 runs. Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy make the case on Red Sox Gameday LIVE...

Jacoby Ellsbury Gets Ketel One Honorable Moment Treatment for Walkoff Hits That Carried Sox, Showed Center Fielder’s Skill

Jacoby Ellsbury always had hints of greatness. Fleet-footed in center, a terror on the bases, more than able at the plate -- Ellsbury was the proof that the Red Sox were doing something right on the farm. He was part of the next great wave for Boston. But before Ellsbury could fulfill all of those expectations, he went on a few injury detours. No one needs the gory details, but let...

Join NESN.com Red Sox Reporter Didier Morais for Twitter Q&A on Wednesday at 11 a.m.

This isn't exactly how Red Sox fans hoped their team would rebound after its epic September collapse, but Bobby Valentine's group is sitting at 1-4 through five games, and there are still plenty of questions to be answered. Fortunately, NESN.com Red Sox reporter Didier Morais is ready to take a stab at some of those questions. They can range from how the Sox can solve their...

Aceves Gets First Save In Sox Win

The Red Sox looked to Felix Doubront to put a stop to the skid that has started the Red Sox season.  It was starting to have a very eerie feeling of 2011.  Doubront came out like gangbusters in spring training and all of Red Sox Nation hoped he would do the same in his first start of the season.  (Photo Credit: AP Photo/The Canadian Press, Frank Gunn) Doubront did just that...

Can Jacoby Ellsbury Have Another 30/30 Season in 2012?

How can Jacoby Ellsbury follow up his 2011 season? After becoming the first Red Sox player to join the 30/30 club by hitting 30 home runs and stealing 30 bases, Ellsbury will likely be playing this year with a chip on his shoulder. He finished second in MVP voting to Justin Verlander, so it stands to reason he might have his sights set even higher in 2012 to get himself over the...

History Reveals Mixed Bag When Comparing Slow Starts for Red Sox, Yankees (Video)

The last time the Red Sox and the Yankees were 0-3, you may have heard, was way back in 1966. A lot's changed since then, obviously, but NESN Nation's Dan Duquette ventured to take a look back and see what else happened in 1966. Maybe that year wasn't so bad after all.
