Sox Lack of Run Support Means Another Loss

The Red Sox came into the game with the series tied and were hoping for a series win.  Clay Buchholz was on the mound for the Sox and in his last few outings he has looked much more like the promising pitcher we need him to be.  Buchholz struggled some in the early innings, but he was able to get into the 8th and give the team a quality start.  Unfortunately he didn’t get much...

Farrell 'not ruling anything out' as Red Sox's struggles persist

BOSTON — What can the Red Sox do to snap themselves out of the funk they currently find themselves in? John Farrell is open to suggestions. The Boston manager was unable to provide any concrete solutions for his team’s struggles — which have been particularly dire in the run-scoring department — after it dropped a 2-1 decision to the Texas Rangers on Thursday night. ...

Thursday Links: What are the Red Sox doing to Jackie Bradley?

Photo credit: Kelly O’Connor In case you forgot, Jackie Bradley Jr. is still occupying a spot on the Red Sox 25-man roster. Since being recalled from triple-A Pawtucket on May 10th, the center fielder has appeared in 6 games, and has spent the bulk of his 2 week stay on the bench. Still at the relatively young age of 25, it is too early for Boston to proclaim that Bradley Jr....

Red Sox: Why it’s time for Rusney Castillo

The Boston Red Sox started off the 2015 season with high hopes. The newly acquired Hanley Ramirez could do no wrong, smashing ten homeruns and 24 runs batted in through the month of April. The other big addition to the lineup, Pablo Sandoval, got off to a great start as well, hitting .312 in April. Mookie Betts also stepped up big time, easily becoming one of the biggest surprises...

Prospect Pulse: Yoan Moncada’s Debut

Well, folks, the long awaited debut of Yoan Moncada has finally come to pass, but it brought with it surprisingly few fireworks. Moncada’s first start with the Low-A Greenville Drive came on Monday where he went 0-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored. Yesterday Moncada recorded his first hit and RBI by going 1-for-5 while also striking out twice.  Seeing as this is the ultimate...

Castillo, Craig and Kazmir could bolster Red Sox

Considering the widely publicized pitching woes and the unexpectedly anemic offense, it could be worse for the Boston Red Sox. Almost a quarter of the 2015 regular season is complete, and the team favored by many pundits to win the American League East title is 19-20 and 2.5 games behind the New York Yankees. With the trade deadline still more than two months away, and most teams...

Are the Boston Red Sox beyond repair or help?

Things aren’t going well for the Boston Red Sox in 2015. They were something of a media darling entering the offseason after spending boatloads of cash in free agency to upgrade their lineup and making some aggressive trades to round out their rotation. Many had them down as the favorites to represent the American League in the World Series if not win the whole dang thing. Yet...

A Red Sox official answered “probably not” when asked if the Sox were willing to make such a trade, according to Cafardo. That is a good thing. What the Red Sox don’t need...

19-Year Old Moncada Becomes A Pro Tonight

Xander Bogaerts Sliding Into First is the Sole Highlight from Yesterday’s Red Sox Game

The Red Sox have just completed a 10 game road trip in which they went 5-5. Not bad on paper; in a perfect world, you win most of your home games and try to at least break even on the road. What’s alarming, however, is the run production of late. Or lack of, I should say. Over the course of those 10 road games in Toronto, Oakland and Seattle, the Sox scored 23 runs, which is...

Boston Red Sox: Big potential after mediocre start

About a quarter through the 2015 MLB season, the Boston Red Sox are playing decidedly mediocre baseball. They sit at 18-20, three and a half games back of the division-leading New York Yankees. It’s been a disappointing result so far for a team that invested heavily in revamping its lineup during the offseason. The Red Sox managed to lure free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval...
