It’s about time. The Red Sox have officially released reliever Bobby Jenks after reaching a contract termination settlement.
Jenks signed a 2 year, $12 million contract with the Red Sox in the 2010 offseason. He was awful in 2011, recording a 6.32 ERA and a 2.23 WHIP in 15.2 innings of work. He was injured for most of the year and had yet to pitch for the Red Sox this year.
For the first time since 2001, the Boston Red Sox had only one player voted into the All-Star Game. As expected, David Ortiz was voted via fan balloting as the American League's starting designated hitter. It marks the eighth time he has been picked to play in the midseason showcase. But he won't have company July 10 in Kansas City unless one of his teammates is chosen...
Zach Gentile was the Red Sox 49th pick in the 2008 MLB draft. He started out the season in Lowell in 2008, and struggled mightily. He hit .222/.271/.259 in 40 games for the Spinners. He had no home runs, 3 doubles, and a triple.
He improved in 2009, hitting .281/.363/.340 in 88 games for the Greenville Drive. He hit a home run, 11 doubles and 2 triples. He took a step back in 2010...

It certainly wouldn't be going out on a limb to say that Felix Doubront did not have his best stuff on Sunday afternoon. With five walks in just 4 1/3 innings, Doubront's pitch count escalated very quicky, adding to his difficulties. That being said, even without his best stuff (and with the help of a double play induced by Matt Albers) Doubront managed to hold the Mariners...
#RedSox have released Bobby Jenks and reached a deal to terminate his contract.

Thus ends the brief stay of Bobby Jenks filling out a Boston Red Sox uniform. That breaks down to $631,579 each time he waddled in from the bullpen, $765,795 per inning worked, and $40,816 per each of the 294 pitches he threw. His per pitch pay...
The Red Sox have been to extra innings five times previously in the season and lost all five of those games. That's not a good stat. Tonight, the Sox would once again head to free baseball, however this time the Mariners would not walk off on them and they would walk away with a split to the 4 game series.
Felix Doubront took the mound for the Sox and while he didn'...
Something tells me that the Boston Red Sox are probably just a little bit happy that they were able to escape the Emerald City with a split of the four-game set with the Seattle Mariners. If they hadn't, it probably wouldn't have been good for their psyches.
The 2-1 win in 10 innings almost didn't happen either.
The offense was being shut down by Jason Vargas through...
Cody Ross spent a couple of the best years of his career in the Bay Area, coming over to the San Francisco Giants in a midseason 2010 trade. Of course, Ross played a huge role to helping to Giants to their first World Series title since they switched coasts, and he clearly has some pleasant memories of his time in the shadow of the Bay Bridge. Playing Monday night on the opposite...
The Kevin Youkilis trade was designed to keep the Red Sox lineup consistent and to make filling out the lineup card easier for manager Bobby Valentine. Well, so much for that plan. With Middlebrooks tweaking his hamstring sliding in to second base during Sunday afternoon's game in Seattle, the Red Sox are in a bit of a scrambling mode, playing Monday night with a bench consisting...
AP PhotoUnsurprisingly, over the past several years Boston has been at the top of baseball in runs scored, hits, homeruns, and walk rate; the 2012 Red Sox are in a similar territory, but with one exception. Boston is currently 2nd in runs, 4th in hits, 5th in homeruns, but only 23rdin walk rate (they are still 8th in on base percentage, but only because they have the 2nd highest...
The Seattle bullpen did a fine job in the just-completed four-game set against the Boston Red Sox. So much so that Red Sox All-Star DH David Ortiz praised the group saying "I didn't see a pitch over the plate to hit all series." There was one pitcher who didn't fall into that mold, however. Former closer Brandon League's struggles continued. On Saturday...
