Daily DraftStreet Picks: Monday, Jul 7

Happy post-4th, America. Last week we had an abbreviated week of picks due to the holiday, but when last we spoke we had a last-second change of heart thanks to some pre-hurricane weather conditions in Boston. Initially we were going with Brandon Workman against a Cubs offense that hadn’t been scoring at all, but just before gametime we swapped out Workman and swapped in a trio...

Brandon Workman Not Making Excuses Following Red Sox’s Loss To Yankees

NEW YORK — Brandon Workman has an excuse. It doesn’t mean he’s using it. Workman looked every bit like a pitcher who hadn’t pitched in 12 days in his return from a six-game suspension Friday. He wasn’t the main problem in the Red Sox’s 6-0 loss to the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium, though, and he actually carved out a fairly decent effort, all things considered....

Brandon Workman Deserves Permanent Spot In Boston Red Sox’s Rotation

BOSTON — Brandon Workman deserves to remain in the Red Sox’s starting rotation. Whether he’ll receive that opportunity is a whole different story.

The right-hander has made a statement since...

Brandon Workman Goes to Work, Man! (And Red Sox Win)

Look, I’m ********* and it’s way past my bedtime, so horrible puns like this are allowed. And all I know is that after Lester and Peavy fumbled through their last outings, we needed someone to right the ship and just get us a motherf$%king win. Tonight, that guy was Brandon Workman, who set down the Orioles in grand fashion, allowing only one hit through 6 and 2/3 — and that...

Brandon Workman Appeals 6-Game Suspension

Major League Baseball handed down a ludicrous six-game suspension on Brandon Workman for "intentionally throwing" at Evan Longoria during PunkRaysGate last Friday. This, despite the fact that the only people who were actually hit that night were three Red Sox players. How Joe Torre and his 'gumshoes' did not find David Price equally guilty of intentionality is astounding...

Workman Gem Wasted In An 11-Inning, 3-2 Loss

(Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)Brandon Workman made a big statement in his first big league start. The 24-year-old righty carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning, giving up his bid for immortality and the lead on a two-run home run in that frame. The game droned on until the 11th when the A's walked-off with a 3-2 win—victimizing new Red Sox reliever Matt Thornton. Dustin Pedroia...
