Every year there are Major League Baseball teams that sign a bunch of veteran players to minor league deals and stick them away in Triple-A since there is no room on their current 24-man roster. This year, the Boston Red Sox signed former Baltimore Orioles and Texas Rangers utility player Brandon Snyder to a minor league deal on April 2 and since then, have gotten quality production...
The last time the Boston Red Sox had a pick in the Top 10 was 1993. First pick in that draft was shortstop Alex Rodriguez (you’ve heard of him) by the Seattle Mariners, the easy No.1, even coming out of high school (he turned down playing shortstop and quarterback for the University of Miami). Following Rodriguez came five straight pitchers: two of whom suffered career-shortening...
Jackie Bradley Jr. didn’t fare so well in his first taste of the big leagues. However, with the young outfielder’s meteoric rise through the Red Sox’ system, it was only a matter of time before he ended back up with the big club, and it appears that time is Wednesday.
According to Comcast Sports Net’s Maureen Mullen, Bradley will be recalled from Pawtucket on Wednesday, and...
The StealVery few Red Sox players can bridge the generations with their exploits—but Dave Roberts is one of them. He was at that magical moment in time when his singular achievement could make octogenarians and millennials weep together with joy. That stolen base is a touchstone that every Red Sox fan can own forever. The iconic images will never fade. The near pick-offs. The hand...
They are aging, hurt and they just lost five in a row. Now, they must entertain the first-place Boston Red Sox for three games at The Concrete Bunker On 161st Street. Boston leads the majors in runs scored and holds a two game lead on the Bronx Embalmers. Tonight, Jon Lester takes the hill for Boston and will face two Evil Ones straight off the disabled list. Former good-guy Kevin...
Franklin Morales returned to the mound just in time for the Red Sox.
With Clay Buchholz still sidelined with a collarbone issue, Boston needed a spot starter, and it just so happened that Morales was finishing up his rehab assignment and ready to return to the big club for his season debut. The result Thursday was a 9-2 victory over the Phillies, and a win for Morales in his first...
The Red Sox made a number of offseason transactions, but acquiring Graham Godfrey didn’t exactly grab headlines. The pitcher is reportedly on the move again.
According to Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal, the Red Sox have traded Godfrey to the Pirates in exchange for cash considerations.
Godfrey was acquired by the Sox from the Athletics back in December to complete an...
With the Yankees now nearing full strength and challenging the Red Sox for first place in the American League East, this weekend’s series in the Bronx has a lot more riding it than the first time these teams met on Opening Day.
But even though the rivalry seems to be heating back up, the Red Sox players are approaching Friday night’s tilt at Yankee Stadium as “just another...
John Lackey wasn’t at his best Wednesday night but he has pitched effectively for the Red Sox this season. Lackey, signed to a five-year, $82.5 million contract prior to the 2010 season, had a rocky start to his Boston tenure. After posting solid peripherals with poor run prevention marks in 2010, he posted a 6.41 ERA in 2011 before undergoing Tommy John surgery. He missed the...

With the Astros moving to the American League this season Interleague Play is now throughout the season. The season began with the Angels visiting the Reds. I for one like the idea of Interleague Play throughout the season but understand it isn’t beneficial to all teams. The Red Sox are one of few teams to have just experienced interleague games for the first time during...
