Christian Vazquez Shines For Red Sox In Second Major League Game (Video)

Christian Vazquez has had quite the last few days. Just two days after making his major league debut at Fenway Park, the 23-year-old catcher found himself back in the Boston Red Sox lineup on Friday against the Houston Astros. If Vazquez was nervous about performing on the big stage, he didn’t show it. The Puerto Rican native collected his first major league hit and then some...

Sox Open Up Series with Astros With a Nice Win!

The Red Sox headed to Texas for the final series before the All Star Break and had just come off two walk off victories.  The Sox had John Lackey on the mound against former O’s pitcher Scott Feldman.  The Sox have always had success against Feldman and the same would be true last night.  Lackey still seems a little fatigued at the midway point, but he pitched well enough to...

Christian Vazquez a big hit as Red Sox thump Astros

OK, so maybe it really is possible to sell off veteran players and start winning more consistently. Perhaps those things aren’t mutually exclusive, after all.

Christian Vazquez’s Emphatic Arrival Keeps Red Sox’s Momentum Rolling

The Boston Red Sox are 3-0 in the Christian Vazquez era. OK, maybe the 23-year-old catcher isn’t directly responsible for the Red Sox’s three-game winning streak, especially since he went hitless Wednesday and didn’t play Thursday. But Vazquez, who was called up when A.J. Pierzynski was designated assignment, sure had his fingerprints all over Friday’s 8-3 win over the Houston...

Drew Eats Banana, Vazquez Goes Nuts, Red Sox Win Again

Standing rule in Mantown is that you just don’t eat bananas in public. So when Stephen Drew was seen openly munching on one of Chiquita’s finest in the Red Sox dugout, I took it as a bad omen. Turns out, I was wrong. The Sox pounded out 12 hits, scored 8 runs, and got a pretty solid six from John “ten game winner” Lackey to vanquish the Astros, 8-3. We even saw what could...
