Ben Cherington-Lack of Identity

The Herald’s Scott Lauber was correct. The Red Sox made only two minor moves before the trade deadline. This seems to reflect Ben Cherington’s continuing lack of identity. In his press conferences he seems uncomfortable and speaks in platitudes. Meanwhile, the Sox have one of the worst records in baseball and are headed for their third last place finish in four years and...

Hanley Ramirez Returns, Pablo Sandoval Still Out For Red Sox Vs. Rays

The Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night without two prominent hitters in their lineup. One of those bats is back as the Sox look to make it three wins in a row. Hanley Ramirez returns to Boston’s lineup batting seventh and playing left field for Saturday afternoon’s tilt against the Rays at Fenway Park. Third baseman Pablo Sandoval remains on the bench after...

Rick Porcello’s Contract Now an Unrelenting Hindrance for the Red Sox

I can’t imagine I was the only baseball fan perplexed at the details of the massive four-year contract extension given to Rick Porcello by the Boston Red Sox back on April 6. Boston now owes it’s top starter — by default, of course — a staggering $82.5 million, starting in 2016. Out of the skepticism rose a fair amount of support for this signing, some even describing it...

WATCH: Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval Strikes Out After Being Hit By A Pitch

It has not been a good year for Boston Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval. Yes, he got paid when he signed a five-year, $95 million deal so it hasn't been all bad. Boston, however, signed him for his bat which has been kind of quiet this season (he's hitting just .262 with only eight home runs).Now it looks like he could miss some time after getting hit by a pitch Thursday night...

Just Another Rocking-Chair Win For Mighty Sox

(Getty Images)Signs and wonders. Of course the slumping Red Sox would beat up on one of the best left-handed starters in the game in Chirs Sale. Of course they'd get seven solid innings out of knuckle-baller Stephen Wright (who owns the world's largest seashell collection). Of course Rusney Castillo would show us why Ben Cherington spent $80 million or so of John Henry's money...

Sandoval downplays talk about weight, conditioning, defense

BOSTON — After Pablo Sandoval was removed from Wednesday’s game due to dehydration, Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said Sandoval’s conditioning is a matter that “continues to be addressed.” The 5-foot-11, 255-pound third baseman’s weight has been a point of discussion throughout his major league career, but Sandoval insisted Thursday that he has not gained any...

Red Sox Designate Daniel Nava For Assignment

As we suggested might happen back in mid-July, Daniel Nava was designated for assignment by the Red Sox today. If this is truly the end of his Red Sox career, there will be many good memories. For example, Nava was just the fourth MLB player ever to hit a grand slam in his first major league at bat—and just the second to do it on the very first pitch he saw in the bigs. In the...

Red Sox Fan Projectile Vomits At Fenway Park

UpChuckNation In ActionOK, it's been a really bad season—but not that bad. A sickened fan vomited at Fenway Park last night from a second-level of luxury seats onto the unfortunate masses below. It's unclear what exactly provoked the flow—but it might have been the inability of anyone in the Red Sox infield to cover third base while a White Sox player happily scampered there...

VIDEO: Red Sox fan pukes all over other Red Sox fans

Twitter With a current record of 44-58, you might say that the Boston Red Sox have puked all over themselves in 2015.  On Wednesday night during the Red Sox 9-2 loss to the White Sox, one Red Sox fan puked all over his fellow Red Sox brethren. Was he ill?  Maybe.  Did he dabble in the sauce a little bit too much before the game?  Likely.  Is it hilarious to know that obnoxious...

Farrell: Sandoval's conditioning 'continues to be addressed'

BOSTON — When dehydration forced Pablo Sandoval to leave Wednesday’s game, ongoing concerns about his conditioning immediately came to mind. Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell couldn’t name exactly what prompted Sandoval’s fifth-inning exit — maybe it was the 91-degree heat, Farrell said, or the fact that he had tried to score from first base earlier in the game ...

Mookie Betts makes great catch, but turns double into homer

Well, this has to suck. In the sixth inning of Tuesday’s White Sox-Red Sox game at Fenway Park, Mookie Betts made an outstanding catch to rob Jose Abreu of extra bases. Then he fell over the outfield wall, lost control of the ball, and a replay review turned the third out into a two-run homer. If Betts simply let the ball drop, the play would have had a better result for the...

Boston Red Sox trade rumors: Mike Napoli and Shane Victorino edition

Shane Victorino In case you missed it, the Boston Red Sox are no longer in contention. Through 100 games, their record stands at 44-56. They’re 13 games behind the first-place New York Yankees. They’re unlikely to get to .500 this season. Even climbing out of the cellar of the AL East seems like an impossible feat. As the trade deadline approaches, the Red Sox have obvious areas...

Angels acquire Shane Victorino from the Red Sox

We have a trade. According to Fox Sports Jon Morosi, the Los Angeles Angels acquired outfielder Shane Victorino from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for infielder Josh Rutledge and cash. The move, while not monumental, makes sense for the Angels. The club has primarily used Matt Joyce in left field, which has yielded disappointing results. In 86 games, Joyce is batting below the...

It’s time for David Ortiz to assume a platoon role with the Boston Red Sox

David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox hit two home runs and picked up seven RBI in Sunday night’s 11-1 win over the Detroit Tigers.  After failing to hit above .237 in any of the first three months of the season, Ortiz is at .303 for the month of July and is hitting .357 (10-for-28) in the past seven days. So it may seem that now might not be the time to once again call for the Red...
