Buchholz Needs To Seize The Game Six Moment

(Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports)Clay Buchholz started 2013 like the presumptive Cy Young winner. On Saturday, he will face the guy who will actually win the honor—Max Scherzer. Before his baffling injury, Buchholz was 9-0 with a microscopic ERA. Since his return, he has had moments of dominance and defeatism—a troubling inconsistency that is making fans of The Carmine Hose a...

Clay Buchholz, time to deliver

Tomorrow Clay Buchholz takes what could be his best and last shot this season at making folks use his name and the word “ace” in the same sentence. It’s been a while which means his timing could not be much worse. Buchholz’ omission is made even more glaring since the talk of this American League Championship Series has been the brilliance of the starting pitching ­...

Victorino's Penchant for Postseason Grand Slams

Congrats to old buddy Shane Victorino. The Flyin' Hawaiian's grand slam in Game 6 of the ALCS sent the Boston Red Sox to the World Series to face the St. Louis Cardinals. It was an emotional blast for Shane, as he was terrible up until that point in the series. If you recall, this is Vic's second postseason grand slam, having taken CC Sabathia deep back in 2008 against...

Shane Victorino Launches Seventh-Inning Grand Slam Over Green Monster During Game 6 (GIF)

It was Shane Victorino‘s turn to play the role of the hero for the Red Sox on Saturday night.

Shane Victorino’s Grand Slam Propels Red Sox to World Series Among Best Images From Game 6 (Photos)

The Boston Red Sox are World Series bound. After Dustin Pedroia and Jonny Gomes came within inches of knocking a couple of homers out of Fenway Park, Shane Victorino finally made it happen. The right fielder came up to the plate with the bases loaded, one out, and he absolutely crushed a Jose Veras curveball over the Green Monster to give the Red Sox the lead, 5-2. The Flyin’ Hawaiian...

Shane Victorino is giving up on switch-hitting again

Shane Victorino has hit exclusively from the right side for the past six weeks so it was a bit of a surprise to see him bat left-handed against Anibal Sanchez in Game 5 of the ALCS on Thursday night. However after going 0-for-3 against Sanchez he flipped back to the right side against relievers Jose Veras and Al Alburquerque. And from what he told Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com he...

Red Sox Tame Tigers for American League Pennant, Look Like Team of Destiny Going Into World Series

BOSTON — Baseball is the most statistic-based sport on the planet. There’s seemingly a number for everything, and those numbers are used ad nauseam to try to explain what happens on the field. Sometimes, you just have to say, “Screw it,” and enjoy the ride. The Red Sox are World Series bound after taming the Tigers in six games in the ALCS, and there are plenty of reasons...

Greatest Soundbyte from the ALCS?

We heard and saw a lot of awesome things during the 2013 ALCS. But the following soundbyte, especially when whittled down and removed from the context of Salty and Erin Andrews having just been doused with Gatorade by Shane Victorino, has a certain poignancy to it. And, yes, Salty’s response pushes it into the Stratosphere of Awesome. The post Greatest Soundbyte from the ALCS...

Playing Catch Up, Sox Closing In

As usual, I’m sure things were very quiet in my absence. Watching and following Boston sports from 3000 miles away might actually be the best way to do it. The games are finished earlier, there’s no idiotic post-game hotsportztakes and forced worries following uplifting wins, and you’re not tempted to tune into sports radio to hear how they can take the best wins and make them...
