Red Sox Option Joe Kelly In Plethora of Moves

The Boston Red Sox front office is busy today. They have called up outfielder Jackie Bradley, infielder Deven Marrero, and right-handed pitcher Jonathan Aro. They then optioned right hander Joe Kelly to Triple-A, placed Dustin Pedroia on the disabled list with a hamstring strain. Backup catcher Erik Kratz was designated for assignment. Bradley is one of the best players, if not the...

Joe Kelly Continues His Season of Struggle

The Red Sox came home to what was supposed to be Friendly Fenway, however with Joe Kelly on the mound it didn’t seem so friendly.  Kelly’s continued struggles put the Sox in a hole early and the offense wasn’t potent enough to have his back.  The Sox continue to struggle against AL East teams which makes it basically impossible to make any move out of the basement in the...

Spiraling Red Sox Officially the Worst Team in the American League

Shame on me this time. After watching the Red Sox take two of three from the reigning AL champs over the weekend, while outscoring them 24-12, I thought we’d turned a corner. Stop laughing; I’m serious. I thought they night actually strap on the big pants and play like they truly wanted to give us something to live for down the stretch. Well, you got me, Red Sox. You got me...

Joe Kelly Finally Gets His Second Win!

Joe Kelly took the mound yesterday and in many ways he was pitching for his job.  There are currently 6 starters in the rotation, but soon Farrell is going to bring that down to 5 and Kelly is one of the guys on the bubble.  Kelly took the pressure in stride and pitched well enough to show that he has value to the rotation.  Does that mean he will stay?   Only John Farrell knows...

Red Sox’s Offense, Defense And Pitching Working Together Leads To Win (Video)

The biggest flaw of the 2015 Boston Red Sox is consistency. When the offense has provided, the pitching or defense has failed, and vice versa. Joe Kelly was well aware of that when he took the mound Saturday against the Oakland Athletics, and made it a priority to get his teammates off the field as quickly and efficiently as possible. That extra effort...

Twins Win Due to Joe Kelly’s Poor Start

The Red Sox had a Memorial Day game in Minnesota and had Joe Kelly on the mound.  Kelly has been better as of late, but that would not continue yesterday.  Kelly struggled and didn’t make it out of the 2nd inning and put the Sox in a hole early.  The Sox offense was not able to make up the difference and the Twins coasted to a victory in the series opener. Kelly gave up a single...

Thank You, Joe Kelly, For Letting Me Go Outside Today

This is a holiday weekend, and there are things you’re “supposed” to do on long weekends in the warmer months. Like go outside, hang with friends, drop back a few hundred brewskis, engage with the family, toss frisbees at homeless people, dress up as Millard Fillmore and hit City Hall Plaza, and cut the crotch out of every pair of “Dockers” in your closet. Thing is, when...

Joe Kelly Might Be Turning Corner After ‘Strong’ Start For Red Sox (Video)

Joe Kelly has been a bit up and down this season, but there’s no doubt that Thursday’s performance fell into the former category. The Boston Red Sox right-hander came up big against the Seattle Mariners, allowing just one run over 6 1/3 innings in his team’s 2-1 win at Safeco Field. The effort certainly was a promising one for Kelly, who had allowed five earned runs or more...

Joe Kelly’s New Look A Potentially Huge Development For Boston Red Sox

This embed is invalid" /> The Boston Red Sox gladly will take that guy every fifth day. Joe Kelly has made 17 starts in a Red Sox uniform, yet he remains somewhat of a mystery, in large because his electric stuff hasn’t always translated into success. The right-hander silenced (at least temporarily) any cries for Boston to move him into the bullpen...
