Don’t Worry About David Price

Let’s start with a little game of good news, bad news. As is tradition, the good news comes first: after inking a seven-year deal worth upwards of $200 million with the Boston Red Sox this offseason, left-handed ace David Price has begun the season with a record of 4-0 in his first six starts. The bad news: he currently sits on a 6.14 ERA, fourth-worst in the America League among...

Christian Vazquez Gets an Odd Shoutout in the New York Daily News

Today's New York Daily News wasn't happy that Christian Vazquez finished off the Yankees in BostonPhoto Courtesy of the New York Daily News It’s interesting. When the season started, everyone talked about who they thought was the most important player on the Red Sox. For me, it’s always been Christian Vazquez. We didn’t know when he was going to be able to recover from surgery...

ESPN Says Red Sox Are Number 8 In Power Rankings

ESPN's Week Four MLB Power Rankings are out, and the Red Sox have moved up from 17th place to 8th place. In the real world, of course, The Carmine Hose are now in first place in the American League East, but 'The Worldwide Leader' still decided to rank the second-place team in the division (Baltimore) one slot ahead of Boston. Must be The Curt Schilling Factor.

Reliever Carson Smith Set To Join Red Sox On Tuesday

If there were frequent flier miles between Boston and Pawtucket, Marco Hernandez would qualify for a free trip to Hawaii by now. The young infielder was again sent back to AAA to make room for the likely activation of relief pitcher Carson Smith on Tuesday in Chicago. Smith successfully completed his rehab assignments in the minors and is ready to join the big club's 'end of the...

Reviewing the individual performances that have led to Red Sox success

COMMENTARY Well, they’ve already exceeded my expectations. My frequently malfunctioning ACME-brand crystal ball had the 2016 Red Sox going 12-13 in April. You’ll recall they were on that southbound path at one point – they started 6-7, and manager John Farrell had some sweat on his brow – but finished the month with a relatively impressive […] The post Reviewing the individual...

Red Sox Lack Home Runs, But Not Power

The Red Sox have a good offense. That much is evident. You can simply look at the 126 runs they’ve scored through 24 games (a 5.25 run per game clip) to see the production. Or you can look at the pair of beatdowns they put on the lowly Braves in the middle two games of their four-game series in Atlanta in which they scored 24 times in the four games, and their 8-0 drubbing of the...

WATCH: Christian Vazquez hits moonshot off Dellin Betances as Sox sweep Yanks

Boston Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez entered Sunday evening with one home run in 240 career plate appearances. And because baseball is wacky, Vazquez hit one a mile off New York Yankees star reliever Dellin Betances, for what would serve as a game-winning homer in the Red Sox’s 8-7 victory over the Yankees on Sunday. This is exactly what the @CantPredictBall Twitter account...

John Farrell: Red Sox Have To Get Clay Buchholz Back On Track In Rotation

BOSTON — There were plenty of questions about the Red Sox’s rotation behind David Price going into the 2016 season, but overall, things have been better than expected. Price has been shaky at home, but there’s no reason to think he’ll be a concern long-term, especially with an American League-leading 46 strikeouts going into Sunday’s game against the New York Yankees...

Rick Porcello Continues To Dominate

Rick Porcello remained unbeaten after tossing seven shutout innings on Saturday night against arch rival New York Yankees. Porcello improved to 5-0 on the season with a 2.76 ERA wrapping up the month of April on a great note for his Boston Red Sox.

Red Sox Notes: Jackie Bradley Jr.’s Success Product Of Belief In Himself

BOSTON — Plenty of people gave up on Jackie Bradley Jr. as a hitter before the end of the 2015 season, but the Red Sox didn’t. And neither did Jackie Bradley Jr. The Red Sox center fielder once again showed his importance at the plate in Boston’s 8-0 win over the New York Yankees on Saturday, going 3-for-3 and plating three runs with a double and two triples. And for Bradley...

David Price Has High Praise For Red Sox Knuckleballer Steven Wright

The Boston Red Sox signed David Price this past offseason to be their newest ace. And he certainly still could be — he’s made just five starts for the Sox, after all, and was very good in three of them. But so far, the Red Sox’s best starting pitcher hasn’t been Price. It’s been 31-year-old knuckleballer Steven Wright, who’s allowed just four total earned runs over his...

Travis Shaw Better Than Advertised

Travis Shaw was awarded the starting job at third base for the Boston Red Sox and has taken the position and run with it. Shaw is slashing an impressive .324/.392/.521 to begin his first season as a starter with two homers and eight doubles while driving in fourteen. Shaw continued his dominance at the plate putting on a show Tuesday night in which he drove in five runs on two...

Report: Red Sox are ‘encouraged’ by Sandoval’s conditioning

Pablo Sandoval has been on the disabled list with a shoulder injury, and there has been speculation that he has no chance of getting his job back even when he is cleared to return. If the third baseman loses some weight, he might have a shot. According to a report from Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports earlier this month, the Red Sox have no intention of giving Sandoval significant playing...

Can Josh Rutledge Be The New Brock Holt For Red Sox?

Rutledge (L); Holt (R)Since Josh Rutledge has been added to the major league roster, he's been a contributor on both sides of the ball. And, while he hasn't yet demonstrated the positional flexibility of Brock Holt, he might just be the heir apparent to the BrockStar. Think about it. As the season goes on, Holt is making it real hard not to pencil him in to the everyday lineup—mostly...

Rick Porcello Is Currently The Red Sox’ Ace and Other Things I Never Thought I’d Say

For some time now, I’ve suspected Rick Porcello of being something of a double agent. Someone who secretly hates the Boston Red Sox and has been sent here to discredit and dismantle our franchise. And it was surprisingly easy to pile it on slick Rick last year, after management gave him a hefty raise before he’d even thrown a pitch for us. It was even easier once he did start...
