Alejandro De Aza — Minor move a major hit for Boston Red Sox

When the Boston Red Sox acquired Alejandro De Aza on June 3, no one really took notice. Boston was 24-30, which was good enough for last place in the American League East, and De Aza was batting .214 on the season with the Baltimore Orioles. This trade looked like nothing more than an irrelevant team picking up a depth player. Somebody didn’t tell De Aza this however. De Aza came...

Red Sox GM: 'Time to think about' team being sellers

      This embed is invalid   " /> The Boston Red Sox aren’t ready to place a label on themselves just yet.

Red Sox Could Still Win It All: A Totally Sober Guy Explains

There is no place that hope springs eternal with greater fervor or frequency than the mind of a Red Sox fan.

Should Alejandro De Aza Start Over Hanley Ramirez?

Alejandro De Aza has been a bright spot for the Boston Red Sox since joining the team in early June. Last July, when the Boston Red Sox acquired Yoenis Cespedes in a trade with the Oakland Athletics involving Jon Lester, I was excited about the slugger’s future here in Boston. But in the offseason, the Red Sox decided to sign free agent shortstop-turned left-fielder Hanley Ramirez...

For Red Sox, Getting Clayed is Now Officially a Good Thing

Look, I made this silly-ass meme back when Clay Buchholz was pitching, as Robert California might say, like “some ineffectual, privileged, effete, soft-penis debutante.” It made me laugh and, hey, any excuse to work Caddyshack into the mix. Now, however, the joke may be on me. Since a rather inauspicious start, The Face That Launched A Thousand Nightmares is suddenly pitching...

When American League owners decided on the DH rule, the 35-year old Cepeda was given a new lease on baseball life. Cepeda played in 120 games for Boston that year, and produced...

(NESN)Hanley Ramirez is back in Boston today for further tests on his injured left hand. He was hit by a line drive last Wednesday, and has not played since. Initial tests indicated (CATScan, X-Rays) that the hand was not broken, but further discomfort indicated the need for more testing—specifically an MRI.
