Red Sox Notes: Rubby De La Rosa Continues To Struggle Away From Fenway

Rubby De La Rosa has been a very solid pitcher this season — at Fenway Park. In four starts on his home mound, the Boston Red Sox right-hander boasts a 3-0 record, 1.38 ERA and .180 batting average against. His stats away from Fenway, however, are a much different story. De La Rosa entered Thursday with a 4.42 ERA in road starts, and the Toronto Blue Jays continued that trend...

Boston Red Sox sit Brock Holt for first time since May

On Wednesday night, the Boston Red Sox sat Brock Holt for the first time since May 15th. Holt had just snapped a seven game hit streak the night before and with Shane Victorino back on the team, Holt isn’t going to be a guarantee in the lineup every night. Holt usually takes everybody else’s days off, filling in where he is needed, so it makes sense he played in so many games...

Larry Lucchino: Red Sox, Jon Lester to talk contract after season

Boston Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said Thursday on WEEI’s “Dennis & Callahan” that contract talks with Jon Lester have been put on hold until the offseason. “[Ben Cherington] may still have some continuing discussion with [agent] Seth[Levinson] on other issues or other matters, but certainly the negotiation, the parties have agreed to let’s step away and do this...

Red Sox Pregame Notes 7/24/14 It's an early game today!

Toronto, ON- When is it going to end? Will the REAL Red Sox team stand up? After winning 8 of 9 and looking to scratch their way back to being relevant, Boston lost their second in a row to Toronto. Although David Ortiz is delivering on his promise to heat up, it's getting pretty chilly in the rest of the Boston dugout. Pitching hasn't helped that much either, as Clay Buchholz...

Dustin Pedroia Sits; Brock Holt Returns As Red Sox Finish Series With Blue Jays

Dustin Pedroia is scuffling in a big way, and the Boston Red Sox second baseman is getting a day off. Pedroia is not in the starting lineup for the Sox’s series finale with the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday afternoon in Toronto. He’ll be replaced at second base by Brock Holt, as Holt returns from getting a rare night off on Wednesday night. Pedroia is in one of the worst slumps...

Nation Is Outraged As Brock Holt Sits Out

(FenwayNation Photo)After 59 straight starts, Brock 'Babe' Holt is being "rested" tonight—just when the Rd Sox desperately need his juice at the top of the lineup to win tonight's critical Game 3 of the make-or-break road trip. Manager John Farrell justified the decision thusly, "We never like to take any player out that’s doing extremely well. And...

John Farrell: Brock Holt Was ‘Deserving Of A Day Off’ (Video)

Everybody needs a day off from work. Though some were skeptical of Boston Red Sox utility man Brock Holt’s absence from Wednesday’s lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays, manager John Farrell assured that he was just giving one of his best guys some much needed rest after playing in every game since May 17. “You never like to take any player out that’s doing extremely well...

Red Sox-Blue Jays Live: Shane Victorino Leads Off While Brock Holt Rests

4:45 p.m. ET: That infamous laggard, Brock Holt, is out of the lineup again Wednesday. It’s the second time in more than two months he’s gotten the day off. Must be nice. In all seriousness, Holt certainly wasn’t going to complain about so much playing time, but fatigue might have been a factor in his 0-for-4 performance Tuesday. With Holt out, Shane Victorino takes over in...

Brock Holt Not In Red Sox Lineup Against Toronto For First Time Since May

The Boston Red Sox have played up and down baseball all season long, but the one constant since May 15 has been that Brock Holt has been in the lineup. That will change on Wednesday night in Toronto. For the first time in more than two months, Holt will get the night off, as he’s not in the lineup against the Blue Jays. Holt is coming off an 0-for-4 showing in Boston’s 7-3 loss...

The best defensive plays for the week ending July 22nd

Short week? That’s OK. There was still plenty of great defense to hold us over. July 19th, Rockies vs Pirates – Jared Hughes’ quick double play. This line drive off the bat of Charlie Blackmon was just mere inches away from tying the game. Instead, Jared Hughes snared the liner and fired it over to third to finish the inning ending double play. Talk about bad luck for the...

Expedia’s New Ad Featuring Red Sox Rookie Brock Holt

Boston Red Sox rookie Brock Holt made a ridiculous jumping catch Monday night against Toronto Blue Jays 1st baseman, Dan Johnson. OK, so this isn’t an actual Expedia advertisement, yet, but it should be. Along with Jackie Bradley Jr. making a diving catch in front of the JetBlue sign, the Red Sox rookies are proving themselves to be quite marketable to companies with customers...

Brock Holt Unaware He’s Close To Qualifying For Batting Title Race (Video)

Brock Holt has been on a tear all season long for the Boston Red Sox, but because he joined the team with the season already underway, he still hasn’t accumulated enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting title race. His .326 average would put him fifth in the American League, just eight percentage points behind leader Jose Altuve of the Houston Astros. That said, he’s...

Boston Red Sox Poised for Playoff Push

Just a few games prior to the All-Star break, it looked as though the Boston Red Sox were destined to be bottom dwellers in the AL East. Ownership has rolled the dice on several up and coming rookies and up until recently it looked as though they might have struck out. It wasn’t just one person in a slump, it seemed like the whole lineup struggled to produce any type of run support...

David Ortiz passes Carl Yastrzemski on all-time home run list

Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz continued his climb through the game’s record book ranks on Monday.

Ortiz tied Yastrzemski with a two-run blast to...

Brock Holt Slams Into Wall To Make Catch In Red Sox’s Big Win (Video)

A 13-run lead isn’t going to prevent Brock Holt from nearly running through a wall. Holt made a tremendous leaping catch Monday in the fifth inning of the Boston Red Sox’s 14-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. The game already was well in hand, but Holt, whose motor simply doesn’t stop, wasn’t prepared to take his foot off the gas. “I’m not going to let...

Brock Holt Says “Screw You, Gravity!”

As we speak, or type, the Red Sox are kicking the tar out of the Toronto Blue Jays. But in an evening of amazing highlights, none may loom larger than this phenomenal catch made by Brock Holt on a Dan Johnson fly ball in the bottom of the fifth. Remember, this is a guy who is relatively new to playing the outfield, and here he is, scampering up the wall like he owns the motherf#...

Brock Holt, Red Sox Look To Stay Hot As Open Series With Blue Jays

Boston Red Sox utility man Brock Holt just continues to get it done as arguably the club’s most consistent player this season. The Sox have started to heat up as a team in the last week or so, though, and they’ll try to extend their winning streak to five games on Monday night against the Toronto Blue Jays. Holt continues to be the catalyst for the Sox atop the batting order...

Brock Holt Should Remain Red Sox Shortstop

The Boston Red Sox still believe they are in the hunt. At 9.5 games out of the American League East, they still have a shot, albeit an outside one. Boston’s offense is last in the American League in runs and they will need to pick up the pace to have any chance. The Red Sox production from outfielders is last in the American League. The outfield in 2014 has included Daniel Nava...

Sox Confident in Second Half Turnaround

Unless Boston is able to snag a big bat before the trade deadline, I don’t see them catching up to Baltimore. They’re already 9.5 games back, and I don’t see any signs of Baltimore slowing down. But, anything is possible. They have a great rotation and bullpen, and a very capable lineup.They still have the most clutch hitter of all time, Dustin Pedroia, Mike Napoli, and a very...

Red Sox Notes: Brock Holt Torches Astros Pitching Again In Career Day

Brock Holt gives the people what they want. Holt grew up in Stephenville, Texas, so it was no surprise that he had a strong cheering contingent on hand when the Boston Red Sox visited Houston — about a four-hour drive – for a three-game set this weekend. It was worth the trip. Holt abused the Astros’ pitching staff, going a combined 10-for-15 with three extra-base hits and...

John Farrell Disappointed By Boston’s Record, Surprised By Brock Holt (Video)

This year’s Boston Red Sox aren’t very different from last season’s World Series champions, except for one major thing: their record. The Red Sox are 43-52 after Sunday’s win over the Houston Astros, which is good for last place in the American League East. At the start of last year’s All-Star break, they were sitting pretty at the top at 59-38. That’s precisely why manager...
