RED SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Trade Deadline Report: Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox appeared to be on their way to a turnaround after they rattled off 8 of 9 wins including a 14-1 drubbing of the Toronto Blue Jays. They have since followed that up with four straight losses and have once again drifted back into obscurity in the AL East. As the deadline approaches, the Red Sox appear to be headed in a seller status and the moves have already begun...

Archer, Rays peeved at Ortiz’s stare down, bat flip

We have another Red Sox-Rays problem it appears. These two just can’t seem to get along as they battle for best of the worst teams in the AL East. Red Sox slugger David Ortiz helped his team end the Rays’ 9-game winning streak Sunday night with a 3-run shot off of Chris Archer in 3rd inning, staring him down with a pronounced bat flip. Archer said after the game the gestures...

Yankees fan returns lost Red Sox World Series ring to owner

Some Boston Red Sox fans might actually be convinced that there is such a thing as a good Yankees fan after a supporter of the Bronx Bombers recovered and returned a lost 2013 World Series ring to Lowell Spinners owner Drew Weber. Weber, who was dining at Luke’s Bar and Grill in Manhattan on Thursday night, left his ring in the bathroom of the restaurant where it was recovered...

Boston Red Sox: To Trade or Keep?

Well, it’s that time of year. Trade Deadline Week. One of the most hectic, weird, and mostly unpleasant times of the sports year. The Red Sox, after making a nice run two weeks ago, have fallen down once again, sitting 9 games under .500. What was the sad possibility gnawing at the back of our heads is now the simple truth: the season is over, it’s all about April 2015 now. But...

Boston Red Sox: The Jon Lester Conundrum

Brief confession: I hate the MLB Trading Deadline. I don’t mind it in theory, and if I was a casual fan with no team allegiance, it would be a blast to see how the league scrambles to make tiny adjustments (or huge-dynamite-blow-it-up moves) for a playoff push. I hate it like I hate rollercoasters. There fun in theory, but most of the time I just close my eyes, wait for that sinking...

Jon Lester Unlikely To Sign Extension With New Team If Traded By Red Sox

Jon Lester’s stance isn’t changing. The left-hander wants to be with the Boston Red Sox in 2015. Lester, who said Friday that he’d be open to re-signing with Boston over the offseason even if the Red Sox traded him before Thursday’s Major League Baseball non-waiver trade deadline, reiterated the notion Sunday. Lester even took things a step further, telling WEEI.com.com...

Red Sox Rumors: Lester, Miller, Drew Among Trade Chips

A five-game losing skid that was snapped by his club’s 3-2 win on Sunday at Tampa Bay finalized the mindset of Boston Red Sox General Manager Ben Cherington in the final days leading to Wednesday’s non-waiver trade deadline. On Saturday, the Red Sox made the first of several expected transactions when they traded veteran right-hander Jake Peavy to San Francisco for highly regarded...

David Ortiz Flips Bat Like a Boss, Enjoys Every Second of It

The Red Sox do not appear destined to defend their World Series title, but at least David Ortiz is enjoying himself these days. Ortiz homered in Boston’s 3-2 win over the Rays on Sunday, prompting a bat flip of course. Granted the flip was not Puig-worthy but it had flavor, especially when combined with a hearty glare into his team’s dugout. This is the same man who does not...

Boston Red Sox: Will Ben Cherington pull the trigger on Andrew Miller?

As it stands today, the Boston Red Sox have a 2.2 percent chance of making the playoffs. This much we know. What we don’t know yet is just how ready Ben Cherington is to move forward towards 2015 by opening up the hood and letting every other team in MLB take a look at what he’s got. Many players on this still veteran-heavy Red Sox team have gauged interest from several clubs...

The battle was engaged on Saturday. The Red Sox sent five key people (including Vice President of Player Personnel Allard Baird) to watch Rusney Castillo's showcase in Miami, The Evil Ones sent four.

Jon Lester willing to re-sign with Red Sox if he gets traded

Jon Lester’s name is a logical one on the trade market once two factors are considered. First, he is a free agent at season’s end, and second, the Red Sox, 47-56 entering July 26, face an uphill battle as they try to return to the postseason and defend their World Series title. Earlier this week, Red Sox owner John Henry revealed the team and Lester wouldn’t negotiate a new...
