Found 15 days ago on Reading Between The Seams:
In Monday’s game at Fenway Park, right fielder Dayan Viciedo of the Chicago White Sox belted a three-run homer off Boston Red Sox’ starter Clay Buchholz. The White Sox would win 4-0 and the Red Sox would subsequently slip into last place in the American League East. Then against Brandon Workman, with the bases loaded and nobody out in the second inning, Viciedo hit a roller to first baseman Mike Napoli. Napoli dropped it, then an attempt to pick it up he flinched as if it was a bee. (via YouTube)     The White Sox would score two runs in the inning, then go on to win 8-3. The Red Sox remain in last place in the AL East and 10 games back in the wild card race. The White Sox are 7 1/2 back in the American League Central and 5 1/2 back in the wild card.

The 2014 Red Sox and the Importance of One Effin’ Run

The Red Sox are officially in last place. Which I can deal with. Living through the Danny Darwin era makes a man strong. What kills me though is one of the primary reasons they’ve slipped that far: an inability to close the deal in one-run games. The Sox have dropped a staggering 19 one-run games this season. 19 games. And it’s maddening to think that if they’d won just half...

Red Sox are Weak – NEED to be Sellers.

From worst-to-first-to-worst. The Boston Red Sox have now fallen to 10 games under .500. This places them at the bottom of the American League East, falling 9 games out of first place to the Baltimore Orioles. So, is it safe to say that the Red Sox will be selling off their valuable pieces this month? Or could a solid week of play turn it all around? Let’s be honest here, guys…...

Red Sox Storm Back To Beat Pale Hose, 5-4

(Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)If you turned off tonight's Red Sox game in the eight inning—with Boston down 4-0—you can be forgiven. What were the odds that The Olde Towne Team would score 3 in the 8th and 2 in the 9th to win, 5-4? Pretty good odds, apparently. Brock "Babe" Holt capped the rally with a walk-off single, scoring pinch-hitter Daniel Nava with the...

Final call White Sox fans, #TargetSale in All-Star Game

As Chris Sale was left off the American League All-Star team on Sunday, the backlash started to hurdle in on John Farrell for his decision. Although every team needed at least one representative, Dellin Betances, the New York Yankees setup man, was selected. If starters can just pitch one inning of work in the All-Star game, why would Farrell select Betances over Sale, one of the...

Photo from MLB.comConor Frederick (@C_Frederick1016)Contributing WriterThe Red Sox need a win tonight. Really badly. They need to get into the win column and save their season before they don't have a season to save. Granted, some fans don't think there's a season to save, but I'm not one of those. I still think this team can go on a tear, but it has to start tonight...
