RED SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Angels acquire Shane Victorino from the Red Sox

We have a trade. According to Fox Sports Jon Morosi, the Los Angeles Angels acquired outfielder Shane Victorino from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for infielder Josh Rutledge and cash. The move, while not monumental, makes sense for the Angels. The club has primarily used Matt Joyce in left field, which has yielded disappointing results. In 86 games, Joyce is batting below the...

Is the Price right for Boston?

As the trade deadline is approaching rapidly, the Boston Red Sox still find themselves with a need to make a trade. They aren’t completely out of the wildcard race in the A.L. but if they go on another losing streak they very well may.

It’s time for David Ortiz to assume a platoon role with the Boston Red Sox

David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox hit two home runs and picked up seven RBI in Sunday night’s 11-1 win over the Detroit Tigers.  After failing to hit above .237 in any of the first three months of the season, Ortiz is at .303 for the month of July and is hitting .357 (10-for-28) in the past seven days. So it may seem that now might not be the time to once again call for the Red...

Monday Links: Trade Deadline Week!

Photo credit: Kelly O’Connor Despite being dead and buried by the trade deadline last season, the Red Sox were still one of the most active teams on the trade market. With impending free agents and expiring contracts, like those of Jon Lester and John Lackey, Boston collected a cornucopia of interesting veteran players and prospects.

Pedro Martinez: Greatest Red Sox Pitcher of My Lifetime and Dominican Jedi Knight

Through the years, I’ve made a lot of jokes about putting my fist through a wall during a Red Sox game. Fact is, dear readers, I’ve only really done it once. On the evening of August 29, 2000. When Pedro Martinez lost a no-hitter in the ninth inning of a game against the Devil Rays. Back then, on that fateful night, some of you may have been in diapers. Maybe one or two not even...

Pedro Martinez apologizes to new 'teammate' Babe Ruth

  This embed is invalid   " /> Pedro Martinez extended an olive branch upon arriving in Cooperstown. Martinez, as you might recall, declared back in 2001 that he didn’t believe in “damn curses” – more specifically, the Curse of the Bambino – and that he’d drill Babe Ruth (who, of course, died in 1948) on the backside if he ever had an opportunity to...

The Boston Red Sox continued to experience the woes of a long season on Saturday, when they placed second baseman Dustin Pedroia on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

The Red Sox Don’t Win Often. But When They Do, It Is Spectacular.

I will admit that after watching the Sox drop eight in a row and flush whatever meager hope existed of a postseason run down the crapper, I was relieved to see Detroit, fellow members of the sub-.500 club, come to town. Of course, this is the 2015 Red Sox, and right now the late night shift from Roche Bros. supermarket in West Roxbury could give them a tough time. So I should not...

Sox Lose Walk Off Style This Time

The Red Sox keep finding new and inventive ways to lose games.  In the series finale with the Astros they had the lead, lost the lead, tied the game up and then lost the game walk off style in the 9th.  The Sox went 0-7 on the road trip and now have lost 8 games straight.  The Sox looked like they might be able to make a run before the All Star Break, but all of that hope is long...

The Red Sox Just Keep on Losing
