RED SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

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...

WATCH: Jackie Bradley Jr.’s catch at the wall

If the Boston Red Sox stay alive, one reason will be this running catch in deep center by Jackie Bradley Jr (mlb.com). It was one of the key plays to the Red Sox’ 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

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...

Jake Peavy’s Red Sox Teammates Disappointed To See Him Go (Video)

Jake Peavy’s recent pitching struggles didn’t take away from the fact that he had many good friends on the Boston Red Sox. Even before being traded, Peavy called his love for Boston “unbreakable.” A few of his teammates expressed how they would be losing a friend after he was traded to the San Francisco Giants on Saturday for two pitching prospects. “He’s such a great...

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...
