But it doesn’t mean general manager Ben Cherington and Co. will sit on their hands until then, even with the Sox in last place in the American League East. Boston has a track record of making moves in August. The July 31 non-waiver...

Jason Varitek Heading West As Padres Skipper?

(FenwayNation Photo)According to Ryan Posner of The Times Of San Diego, former Red Sox catcher and legend Jason Varitek may be in consideration for the 2016 Padres managerial job. Of course, if John Farrell delivers his second last-place finish in three years, there may be a more attractive opening for Tek right here in Boston.

Henry Owens Makes MLB Debut In The Bronx

(Brian Bissell/Future Star Photos)Henry Owens, a highly-touted left-hander in the Sox organization, will make his major league debut tomorrow at The Concrete Bunker On 161st Street. Since The Carmine Hose trail The Bronx Embalmers by a whopping 13 games, it's not exactly a critical match-up.

What do the Boston Red Sox do with their rotation in 2016?

The trade deadline has come and go for the 2015 season, and we saw the Boston Red Sox make one move at the deadline, and that was acquiring right-handed reliever Ryan Cook from the Oakland Athletics.

Boston Red Sox: Trade Hanley, Trade Sandoval, Just Blow Up The Team!

Well, the trade deadline has arrived, and the less-than-satisfying Red Sox have kept quiet. Boston sits at the bottom of the AL East–and the entire AL– and at this point they have accepted defeat. The 2015 play-offs are out of the picture, and the team is ready to move on and think about next season. A turnaround in 2016 is more than possible, and, quite frankly, it is “more...

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...

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...

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.

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...
