RED SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Boston Red Sox trade rumors: Clay Buchholz

Recently, Clay Buchholz labeled himself as “odd man out” on the team. And with him seeing less and less time on the mound, that might be the case. The 31-year-old is having one of the worst seasons of his career, with a 3-9 record. It is not a given, but it looks like the Boston Red Sox are talking to some other teams in the league in hopes of striking a deal before the trade...

Ziegler's first hiccup since trade stings Sox

Brad Ziegler threw a fastball over the plate to one of the best hitters in baseball and got burned. Ziegler, who had yet to allow a run in six appearances for the Red Sox entering Wednesday, surrendered a go-ahead homer to Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera in the top of the ninth inning at Fenway Park that gave Detroit a 4-3 win and a three-game series sweep.

Not-So-Clean 'Sweep' Sends Red Sox On Long Road Trip

(AP Photo)This is starting to get ugly. From the depths of this three-game sweep at the hands of the Tigers, you can begin to see the outlines of a lost season—epic offense, ineffective pitching, mediocre results. Again. This afternoon, in addition to a so-so start from Eduardo Rodriguez (5 1/3 innings, 3 earned runs), it was the newest bullpen addition that came up short. Brad...

Red Sox unable to cap rally in finale vs. Tigers

Before the Tigers took Wednesday's series finale, 4-3, at Fenway Park, the Red Sox were the only team in the Major Leagues that had gone all of 2016 without being swept. Miguel Cabrera's go-ahead homer in the ninth flipped that script.

#PapiMoment - The Record

Brian HinesContributing WriterSince 1938, Jimmie Foxx has held the Red Sox record for most home runs in a season hitting 50. A record that already stood for a while and seemed to stand for longer. But in 2006, David Ortiz wanted to join the record books. It broke a record that was held for the last 68 years.It came on September 21, 2006. The Red Sox were facing the Twins, the team...

Red Sox Score Enough, Can't Pitch Enough, Lose 9-8

No Joy In Mudville (AP Photo)Somebody should tabulate the number of games lost by the Red Sox in which prodigious offensive production is squandered by crap pitching. Whatever that number is, last night was certainly one that qualified. After falling behind 4-0 (on a night when Steven Wright's knuckleball was apparently humidity-challenged), they tied the score, actually went ahead...

The Red Sox Losing to the Tigers Just Can’t Shake Me

I never want to become one of those people who’s content to rest on laurels and past glories and demand nothing more of the Red Sox in years to come. But I have to be honest: these two losses to the Tigers — even last night’s infuriating, come back only to lose ****show — just haven’t phased me. In fact, unlike some other largely unnecessary losses from this season, they...

Game 98 Recap: Tigers 9, Red Sox 8

If you’re the type to get frustrated easily, then boy, do we have a game for you! Top Play (WPA) Big moment, big hit, Big Papi. That round-tripper was worth .225 WPA, and brought the Red Sox back into the game early on. Ortiz took a Mike Pelfrey sinker that floated over the outer edge of the plate and deposited it into the visitor’s bullpen. That blast was one of the few bright...

Did Eduardo Rodriguez Really Turn It Around?

After a solid rookie campaign, Eduardo Rodriguez struggled mightily in the first half of 2016. The second-year starter has bounced back with two solid outings, but is he for real? Ian York uses PITCHf/x to attempt to determine if the talented lefty has put his struggles behind him. Eduardo Rodriguez was one of the few bright spots for the Red Sox in 2015. His major-league debut...

Red Sox Notes: Boston’s Struggles In Close Games A Cause For Concern

BOSTON — The mark of any good baseball team is its ability to win all different types of games, from close contests to blowouts. The Red Sox have done just fine this season in the latter category. The former? Not as much. Boston lost another close one to the Detroit Tigers at Fenway Park on Tuesday, rallying on two separate occasions before falling to a 9-8 loss. After this defeat...

Red Sox nearly had serious catcher emergency in loss to Tigers

BOSTON — When Sandy Leon crumpled to the ground Tuesday night after getting hit by a pitch in the sixth inning, Fenway Park gave a collective gasp. The concern over losing Leon wasn’t just because the Red Sox catcher surprisingly has been one of the team’s best hitters this season. It also was due to the fact that Boston literally didn’t have anyone to replace him. Ryan...

As the trade deadline quickly approaches the Boston Red Sox currently sit at second place in the American League East.

The Red Sox are Really Hard to Strike Out

The Red Sox have done many of things well since the turn of the century. They’ve won a lot of games (save for those three last-place finishes), developed some good prospects and have scored countless times in both the trade and free agent market. It’s made for an impressive, and fun run that’s included championships and given us many memories. One thing the Red Sox have done...

With the recent surge in the standings and the latest trade deals, it’s no secret that the Boston Red Sox have been buyers up to this point.

From ‘Thin Papi’ to ‘Big Papi’, Ken Griffey Jr. Thinks David Ortiz is a Hall of Famer

In his final season, Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz sure has had a season to remember. At the age of 40, Ortiz is hitting .324 with 24 home runs and 79 RBIs and looks like a player in his prime. In past years, the discussion of whether or not Ortiz is worthy of a plaque in Cooperstown has only intensified, but 2016 Hall of Fame inductee Ken Griffey Jr. believes Ortiz...

David Ortiz's odds of being American League MVP

This is an article about David Ortiz and the MVP. So, to confuse you, we’ll start with Josh Donaldson. On Wednesday he put on a power show to help the Blue Jays defeat the Diamondbacks, 10-4. This performance prompted Andrew Stoeten to tweet “MVP.” Which makes sense. We are talking about the reigning AL MVP going 2-for-4 with a double, homer, and walk. This prompted me to look...

Drew Pomeranz learned of trade to Red Sox on TV

If the San Diego Padres continue to sell off their major league talent as we approach the Aug. 1 trade deadline, starting pitcher Andrew Cashner could be the next to go. The right-hander is not concerned about it, however, because he doesn’t expect the team to keep him in the loop anyway. After he threw 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday night...
