Red Sox 6, Phillies 1

He struck out five and walked two....

Jackie Bradley Jr's Opening Day roster hopes take a hit

The Red Sox have a roster spot available for an outfielder coming out of Spring Training. Unfortunately for young phenom Jackie Bradley Jr., the available spot is in left field. Bradley Jr. has yet to even make an appearance in left field throughout his two-year minor league career with the Sox. After being drafted 40th overall out of the University of South Carolina, JBJ has appeared...

The John Lackey Bounce Continues

As the saying goes, if you throw a dead cat out the window will still bounce when it hits the ground. The same could be said about John Lackey's 2013 season. It would be almost impossible for him to be the worst pitcher in team history like he was in 2013. Last night Lackey gave up only one run in five innings of work. He recorded 13 ground all outs. An optimist would say that...

Stephen Drew cleared to start baseball activities

Concussions are serious business in sports.  A concussion all but derailed Justin Morneau's career.  A series of concussion ma have been the trigger that caused Ryan Freel to commit suicide.  This is why the eagle and players take it easy when trying to come back.  For Stephen Drew and the Boston Red Sox, his return may have taken a while, but they want him to be ready...

Flashback to Phillies 2012 Offseason

The baseball world moves very fast. That’s why I always find it interesting at this time of year to think back to where the Phils were last year. You might be amazed at how much you forget in just one year, so I thought I would remind you through a short hike down memory lane.

Scouting Phils Prospect #6: Darin Ruf

The jury is still out on whether Darin Ruf will make the Phillies opening day roster, but odds are that at some point this season, he'll be back in Philadelphia. With big power and the ability to hit for average, Ruf could have big potential for the Phillies.
