Phillies Scouting Three Top Red Sox Prospects

Despite the talk that the Red Sox are hesitant to give up top prospects, it appears at least one of their potential trade partners thinks they might. Multiple reports suggest that the Philadelphia Phillies are doing due diligence on three top Boston kids: catcher Christian Vazquez, starting pitcher Matt Barnes and IF/OF Mookie Betts. Obviously, all this background work would be in...

Red Sox may be ready to move Yoenis Cespedes

One of the biggest coups of the 2014 Major League Baseball season was the Boston Red Sox landing outfielder Yoenis Cespedes from the Oakland A’s in exchange for a few months of Jon Lester. Cespedes finished the season with 22 home runs and 100 RBIs, while Lester was decent for the A’s and will now hit free agency. Meanwhile, Cespedes has a year left on his contract. That...

Mookie Betts ‘Not Going To Worry About’ Boston Red Sox Trade Rumors

Mookie Betts is blocking out the noise. As the Red Sox embark on a busy offseason, it’s a near certainty that teams across the league will inquire about Betts, especially if Boston intends to land a big name on the trade market. Betts is unfazed by the inevitable trade rumors, though. The 22-year-old instead is focused on building on his strong 2014. “I’m not going to worry...

Boston Red Sox: Quick hits

At this point in the season the Boston Red Sox are not playing for wins and losses. That time has come and gone. Instead, they are playing to evaluate and showcase talent while gauging which players they believe can impact the 2015 team, and which players would be better served elsewhere. So, for all things 2015, let’s take a look at what’s been going on this week: Mookie Betts...

Red Sox Notes: Mookie Betts Continues To Provide Offensive Spark

The Boston Red Sox won’t be involved in the playoff races in September, but exciting outfield prospect Mookie Betts is giving fans reasons to follow the team over the final month of the regular season. Betts was moved up to the leadoff spot for Monday’s series finale against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field, and he provided some much-needed offense for Boston. The 21-year...

An Appeal to Mookie Betts: Please Don’t Make Us Fall in Love With You

I think we can all admit that this Red Sox season has, for the most part, been only slightly more enjoyable than being hooked up to a self groin-kicking machine. We look for bright spots where we can find them, whether it’s Daniel Nava becoming a wildly indispensable part of our line-up or Craig Breslow successfully teaching his niece to parallel park. One such bright spot ...

Mookie Betts Promoted to Red Sox

When I wrote about Mookie Betts and his fantasy prospects for this year earlier this week, I said he would be up in July or August, but the Red Sox have surprised everyone by calling the 21-year-old 2B/OF prospect up to the show today.  He will be available for tonight's game, but it remains to be seen if he will be in the starting lineup right away or not, but it would not...

Place Your 'Betts', Mookie To See Fenway Soon

Mookie Betts—the number five ranked prospect in the Red Sox organization—didn't do anything yesterday to hurt his chances of seeing The Show in 2014. In the AAA PawSox double-header sweep, Betts went 4-10 with a double and four RBIs. He also scored a run and had two stolen bases. Since being moved up from AA Portland, the 21-year old has reached base in all 15 games for the...
