BEST OF MAXIM
With less than one month to go until players take the field for the 2012 MLB All-Star Game, voting is beginning to heat up for players in the American League. The Red Sox have done better in terms of All-Star voting in previous years, but thankfully, at least one familiar face seems to be destined for Kansas City. David Ortiz widened his lead in voting as designated hitter with 1...
The Red Sox ended their losing streak with a 2-1 win behind the arm of Clay Buchholz in Miami.
Buchholz went seven strong innings, scattering five hits and one walk against nine strikeouts. His lone run was a Logan Morrison homer in the 7th, but Clay was able to finish off the Marlins and close out the inning.
The Sox scored their runs in the top of the 7th from some unlikely characters...
Clay Buchholz has been dealing lately, one of the few bright spots in a very rough stretch for the Red Sox. Once again Tuesday, the club turned to Buchholz to change their fortunes in the midst of a losing streak, and the 27-year-old delivered when the team dearly needed him to. The Sox' offense is still very much mired in a funk -- one that can't be blamed on spacious Marlins...
Cody Ross versus David Ortiz in the most unforgiving of sporting environments: the ping pong table. Who do you think would win? That was just one of the questions posed to the Red Sox outfielder as he participated in Red Sox Small Talk. Some of the other queries were more baseball related, including how the Red Sox go about preparing for those pesky Washington Nationals starting...
Editor's note: NESN.com is going to tell the story of the 2012 Red Sox in Bobby Valentine’s words. Each game day, we will select the best Valentine quote that sums up the day for the Red Sox. Clay Buchholz isn't making the AL All-Star team this year. He won't be winning any awards. And he likely won't even be appreciated for his contributions to a middling Red Sox...
Clay Buchholz impressed yet again on Tuesday night, tossing seven strong innings and willing the Red Sox to their first win in five games. Buchholz, Felix Doubront and other members of the Boston pitching brigade have proven pretty consistent as of late. And it looks like the Red Sox offense might need to take a page out of their book given their recent sun-scoring troubles. Check...
The Boston Red Sox ended their four game losing streak Tuesday in a 2-1 victory over the Miami Marlins. Clay Buchholz was the story as he picked up his seventh win on the season in seven strong innings while striking out nine. For the first six innings the game remained scoreless as Marlins starter Mark Buehrle was having his way with the Boston lineup. However, in the seventh...
MIAMI -- After a slow start to the season, Clay Buchholz has found his groove. Buchholz struck out a season-high nine batters in seven strong innings Tuesday, leading the Boston Red Sox to a 2-1 win over the Miami Marlins. Since going 3-1 with a 9.09 ERA in his first six starts, Buchholz is 4-1 with a 2.83 ERA in his last seven. "The ball is rolling right," Buchholz...

After every series, we'll take stock of how each individual and group performance affects their overall value.
Daniel Nava: One good game, (and "good" is used loosely) and one poor game. 2-for-5 with an RBI is pretty good, but add in 3 K's it doesn't look so good now. I'll cut him some slack this time.
Dustin Pedroia: a 3-for-13 is not what Pedey...
The Tuesday Takeaway
Yesterday’s takeaway from the series between the Red Sox and the Marlins in Miami was Josh Johnson’s return to form. After Tuesday’s 2-1 Boston victory, perhaps the same can be said of Clay Buchholz.
The 27-year-old Buchholz was dreadful from the start of the season through May 21. He coughed up seven runs in four innings to the Tigers on April 8 and...
Two teams that haven’t been too successful winning games or making money against the MLB odds recently finish off a nonetheless interesting interleague series as the Boston Red Sox and Miami Marlins go at it Tuesday and Wednesday at Marlins Park.
Boston, as we pointed out in a “Free MLB Picks” piece at SBRForum.com, came into this series having just gotten swept three games...
After falling for the fourth straight game last night 4-1, the Boston Red Sox look to get back on track in the middle game of a three-game set with the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park in the little Havana section of Miami.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Marlins television market...
The Red Sox aren't used to this. It's June, and the Sox are currently sitting in last place of the American League East with a record below .500, which is uncharted territory for a team that has finished third or better in the division every year since 1997. Injuries have decimated the Red Sox' lineup, but that hasn't slowed down the offense much. Boston currently...
