The Guru Contributing Writer The Buchholz watch has now entered day 49. Friday, Buchholz threw 40 "pitches". In the outfield. Clay Buchholz, it’s time to shut up and pitch. Buchholz hasn’t made a start since June 8 and has vowed he will not to pitch until he feels 100 percent healthy. Tuesday, Buchholz suggested he may not be ready until September, "It's just going to be a timetable for me that's not going to be a timetable. Because I don't have an exact time for it." Huh? Is there a timetable? Can you pitch in August? Maybe September? How about 2015 for the Marlins? By the time Buchholz makes it back to the mound in a real game, he will have missed approximately half the season. Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Rays have taken over first place. Monday, the Red Sox shipped Buchholz off to Florida to meet with Dr. James Andrews. Usually seeing Andrews is the equivalent to a visit from Dr. Kevorkian. However, even Dr. Death said things checked out f...

Source: Boston Red Sox expected to sign Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez (UPDATED: Phillies sign Cuban star)

It was eleven years ago that the Boston Red Sox desired Cuban star Jose Contreras, but lost out on him at the last minute to the rival Yankees. Just another example of them getting shafted by the Yankees. This loss led Team President Larry Lucchino to throw a chair across the room and coin the “Evil Empire” term for the Yanks. It appears that won’t be the case this time around...

All Hail The Dempster

  Exactly when did Ryan Dempster become the most reliable starting pitcher the Red Sox have? The dude held the Orioles at bay for five-and-a-third and the bullpen did the rest. Dempster has now given up three runs or less in ten of his last eleven starts dating back to May. Color me surprised. Meanwhile, someone wearing Stephen Drew’s uniform hit two home runs to power the struggling...

Jose Contreras Impressing in Pawtucket, Could Be Bullpen Option for Red Sox (Video)

Jose Contreras‘ first two outings in the Red Sox system could not have gone much better. The 41-year-old, who boasts a potentially devastating forkball, did not allow a hit or a run in either appearance for Triple-A Pawtucket, striking out seven and walking three over 3 2/3 innings. Minor league production by no means guarantees success in the majors — Contreras himself put up...

David Ross’ Leadership, ‘Calming Influence’ Should Help Red Sox As Veteran Returns to Clubhouse

David Ross won’t find his name penciled into the Red Sox’ lineup until at least mid August. But the veteran catcher is back with his teammates, and his presence alone could make a difference. Ross hasn’t played since June 14, as he’s currently on the 60-day disabled list because of a concussion. And even when he has been on the field this season, the 36-year-old has endured...

Jose Contreras, Brandon Lyon Could Become Bullpen Options for Red Sox If Nothing Materializes on Trade Market

The Red Sox made a pair of, “Hey, why not?” moves last week. We might soon get a better glimpse of whether or not they’ll actually pay off. The Red Sox signed veteran relievers Jose Contreras and Brandon Lyon to minor league contracts, with the hope being that each has a little something to offer at a reasonable cost. Obviously, the signings didn’t send shock waves throughout...

Recap: Lester & Ortiz carry Sox to series win

(AP Photo/Nick Wass) I, and I am sure many of you, had very little faith in the Sox winning the series. Well, they proved us wrong, and won their first series against the Orioles this season, behind Jon Lester and David Ortiz. Jon Lester returned to old form, shutting down the Orioles in convincing fashion. Lester went 7 very strong score-less innings, scattering 4 hits, 2 walks...

Red Sox Re-Shuffle Rotation After Rainout

(AP Photo/Michael Dwyer)Thursday's washout at Fenway offered Boston the opportunity to tweak its starting rotation for the next five days. John Lackey—who was last night's scheduled starter—will go tonight in Baltimore. He will be followed by Ryan Dempster on Saturday and Jon Lester on Sunday. Monday's make-up game with the Rays back in Fenway will be handled by Felix...

Boston's Andrew Bailey undergoes season-ending surgery

Do you believe in bad luck? Well if you're a surviving member of the Boston Red Sox bullpen, you may have a reason to start bringing a lucky charm to the park. Just months after losing closer Joel Hanrahan and set-up man Andrew Miller to season-ending surgery, replacement closer Andrew Bailey joined the ranks of Boston relievers to go under the knife, effectively putting an end...

Video: David Ortiz destroys dugout phone after ejection

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz destroyed the dugout phone on Saturday night when he returned to the dugout after he had thought he earned his third walk of the evening with a 7-2 lead on the Baltimore Orioles in the seventh inning. The home plate umpire ruled the 3-0 pitch a ball even though Ortiz was headed towards first base. Ortiz eventually struck out and had words with the home...

Almost 9 Years Later, Red Sox Couldn’t be Happier A-Rod Deal Fell Through

It was December 2003, and the Red Sox had just lost the ALCS to the hated Yankees a couple months prior, but everything seemed to be going the Red Sox way. They had just traded for the best Shortstop in all of baseball, and once he worked out a restructured deal, he would come to Boston and a number 3 jersey with the name Rodriguez would be handed to him at a press conference. All...

Red Sox-Orioles Live: John Lackey, Chris Tillman Comprise Intriguing Pitching Matchup in Series Opener

5:54 p.m.: Daniel Nava will return to the Red Sox’ lineup Friday. Nava has only played in one of the last four games, and he was scheduled to sit out Thursday’s series finale against the Rays before it got rained out. Jonny Gomes has been given more of an opportunity lately, and John Farrell said that matchups have dictated his lineup decisions. Gomes is typically tough on lefties...
