RED SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Are Red Sox 'Punting' On Free Agent Starters?

As time moves on, it appears that the Red Sox may actually be planning to go into the 2015 season with their current starting rotation. ESPNBoston.com's Gordon Edes reports today that Ben Cherington has—in fact—admitted that the team is not "actively engaged" with any of the elite free agent pitchers still available. This is highly distressing on many levels. It indicates that...

Yet to be formally announced is the reported re-signing of 34-year-old left-handed...

Craig Breslow Returns To Sox On 1-YR Deal

(FenwayNation Photo)At least the Red Sox clubhouse will be a little smarter now. Yale grad Craig Breslow re-signed with Boston yesterday on a one-year, $2 million deal. Breslow helps fill the left-handed void in the bullpen—and, hopefully, will revert to his pre-2014 form. While the all-Yale battery is no longer possible with the departure of Ryan Lavarnway (who has bounced all...

New Red Sox pitcher Miley: Gluten-free? What would the Babe say?

Wade Miley kind of has a point. Miley, whom the Boston Red Sox acquired from the Arizona Diamondbacks last week, said earlier this week that he butted heads with his former club last season because of a disagreement concerning its stance toward players' diets. The new Red Sox pitcher clarified things Thursday, suggesting his initial comments were overblown. "I said something a little...

Will Middlebrooks Could Have Been A Mainstay

Baseball is a crazy business. In 2012, Will Middlebrooks looked like one the emerging young stars of the sport. After filling in at third base for an injured Kevin Youkilis, Middlebrooks had a half-season full of promise. In just 75 games, he hit .288 with 15 HRs and 54 RBIs. We all thought we had a kid who could clout 30 bombs and 100 RBIs for years. Then, injuries intervened. And...

David Ortiz’s Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament Looked Like A Blast

David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez were arguably the best one-two punch in baseball during their prime years with the Boston Red Sox. No one will doubt their talent at the plate, but their ability to hit a golf ball is a different story. Besides, why would two guys with more than 450 home runs each need to hit a golf ball? At Big Papi’s annual David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic,...

Tuesday Links: Where does Allen Craig fit in Boston?

Photo credit: Kelly O’Connor First baseman/outfielder Allen Craig is perhaps the most interesting trade chip that the Boston Red Sox have left on their current roster. While the 30-year old’s 2014 numbers don’t seem to give him much trade value, Craig’s overall career stats seem to warrant a mulligan. After coming to Boston in July of last season, Craig was in the midst...
