Red Sox Prospect Henry Owens Named Eastern League Pitcher Of The Year

If you haven’t already heard, Boston Red Sox pitching prospect Henry Owens is a pretty big deal. And the 22-year-old southpaw only added to that notion by being named Eastern League Pitcher of the Year. Owens put  up some incredible numbers during his time with the Portland Sea Dogs. His 14-4 record and 2.60 ERA in 20 starts in Double-A helped lead the team to the best record...

Red Sox need to add an anchor to the rotation

Chris O'Meara/Associated PressConor Frederick (@C_Frederick1016)Contributing WriterThe 2014 Red Sox have a lot of problems. I mean, A LOT of problems. But of all of these problems, perhaps the most obvious is pitching, specifically the starting rotation. The only remaining starter from the start of the year is Clay Buchholz. Every other starter has been traded elsewhere. And...

Carl Yastrzemski Reflects On Red Sox Career On 75th Birthday (Videos)

Carl Yastrzemski is a Boston Red Sox legend for good reason.

He won the Triple Crown in 1967 and was named the American League MVP...

How Many Outfielders Can the Red Sox Use: A Second Look

Back in March, the Boston Red Sox were trying to decide which of their many outfielders were going to make the team. At the time, Grady Sizemore and Jackie Bradley Jr. joined 2013 holdovers Shane Victorino, Daniel Nava, Jonny Gomes, and Mike Carp to form a large cast that needed to find a way onto the 25-man roster. Before the season started, this looked like more depth than many...

Boston Red Sox: Quick hits

Even though they are a long way from contention, the Boston Red Sox continue to be an entertaining team to watch night in and night out. Due to a poor record, they’ve been given the chance to, how should I put this, experiment with a roster that provides fans with a mixed bag of talent and characters: you’ve got the veteran mainstays like Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz; the...

Rusney Castillo Begins Working Out At Red Sox’s Spring Training Complex

Rusney Castillo’s ascent officially has begun.

Castillo recently signed a seven-year, $72.5 million contract with the Red Sox, marking the richest deal ever given to a Cuban player on...

Oh, Just Mike Napoli Launching a Home Run to the Fifth Deck of the Rogers Centre

Although his bat has been quiet of late, Mike Napoli remains a force to be reckoned with. The Italian Thor, you might say. For proof, I submit a home run he hit during last night’s Sox-Jays game at the Rogers Centre. A shot that hit the mother-effin’ fifth deck. And here’s a cleaner shot: Your browser does not support iframes. As you can see in my ****** vine, the ball landed...

Red Sox Rumors: Boston should pursue Braves' Jason Heyward

The Boston Red Sox have had a time this season finding an outfield that can stay healthy and can also hit the baseball. Even with the acquisition of Yoenis Cespedes at the July 31 trade deadline hasn't really helped all that much. But according to Scott Lauder of the Boston Herald, the Red Sox might have their eyes set on someone who could be a real game changer, Jason Heyward...

Fenway Fanatic Creates Red Sox Fan Art With Security Stickers

Using the 47 (one of her visits was a double-header) brightly-colored security stickers  that Fenway Park ushers placed on her bag after checking it...

Clay Buchholz and the World’s Most Dramatic Umpire

Remember that guy named “Clay Buchholz” who was our single most effective pitcher out of the gate last season? That guy showed up again last night at Skydome, working 8 solid innings and giving up just 2 hits and no runs. Of course, once the ninth inning hit, we were hit with a sharp reminder that this is 2014, not 2013. After getting the first out, Clay let the next three batters...

Boston Red Sox land Rusney Castillo

In a move that required a record amount of money towards a free agent who’s yet to see a pitch in MLB, the Boston Red Sox continued to re-shape their offense moving forward by inking Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo to a seven-year, $72.5 million deal. Castillo, who was born in Ciego de Avila, is a 5-foot-9, 205 pound outfielder. He is described by scouts as a four-tool player...

It's Official: Red Sox #38— OF Rusney Castillo

The Red Sox made it official yesterday by announcing the signing of Cuban defector Rusney Castillo to a 7-year, $72.5 million contract. The speedy 27-year old OF has put on 20 pounds of muscle over the last year and projects to be a top-of-the-order speedster who hits for average and some power. Essentially, he is the Ellsbury replacement. Said GM Ben Cherington, "He's got...

Watch: Red Sox fan gets hit by foul ball after failed attempt to stretch out and catch it

Red Sox SP Joe Kelly had an excellent outing in Friday night's game against the Seattle Mariners, giving up only 1 hit (0 ER) in five innings. But Koji Uehara's five-run implosion in the ninth inning was the difference in another disappointing loss. And when the pitcher's duel was deadlocked at 0-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning—right before the Sox took the lead...
