Red Sox Take On Evil Ones Today At 1:05 PM

It means nothing, of course. If Felix Doubront goes out and hurls six no-hit innings against The Bronx Embalmers today, it will have absolutely no impact on who hoists the 2014 World Series trophy. And yet, it is the Red Sox versus the Yankees. And it may feature Jacoby Ellsbury in home pinstripes facing his fellow 2013 World Champions (if he isn't hurt). The Red Sox know who...

What The Mets Could Do With An Open Checkbook

If money was not an issue and the Mets could have any offensive free agent on the market, it would be really cool to see certain guys wearing a Mets uniform in 2014.  This is only a dream post at this point, unless the Wilpon’s come across a ton of money that they could spend with no worries.  But we all know that will never happen, because as Mets fans we are not meant to be...

Will Middlebrooks’ Recall Could Boost Offense, But Red Sox Should Have Given Xander Bogaerts a Shot

Sometimes, a change is a good thing, even if it’s not the best thing. (What the heck is he talking about?) Allow me to explain. The Red Sox absolutely needed to do something about their third base situation, as the platoon of Brock Holt and Brandon Snyder hasn’t been working out. The duo is hitting a combined .108 (4-for-37) with no home runs and three RBIs since July 31, and...

Sox Call Up Middlebrooks; In Lineup Tonight

In a long overdue move, the Red Sox called up Will Middlebrooks from AAA Pawtucket and immediately inserted him into the lineup on Saturday in Kansas City. The presumed reason for the move was a "Fenway Flu injury" to Brandon Snyder—who was placed on the disabled list. Look for a similar move up of phenom Xander Bogaerts before the rosters expand on September 1st.

This may surprise you, but the Red Sox tandem of Brock Holt and Brandon Snyder at third base lately wasn't exactly the most productive effort in Major League Baseball.
