4 potential building blocks for the Sox

Photo from redsox.comConor Frederick (@C_Frederick1016)Contributing WriterI think most of us, even me now, have conceded the 2014 season as a lost cause. The Sox would have to go on a ridiculous tear to get even the 2nd wild card spot, let alone the division. Not only that, but at least a couple of the teams ahead of the Sox would have to emulate the Sox circa 2011. But one of the...

Report: Jon Lester returning to Boston ‘a long shot’

The consensus since the Boston Red Sox traded Jon Lester to the Oakland Athletics at the trade deadline has been that Lester, a free agent at season’s end, very well may end up back in Boston next season. But, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, Lester returning to Boston this upcoming winter is viewed as a long shot. Back in Spring Training, the Red Sox offered Lester a four...

Brock Holt has been robbing major league hitters all season. He received a taste of his own medicine Tuesday.

Brock Holt’s Permanent Defensive Position Still Undetermined (Video)

Brock Holt has clearly established himself as an everyday player in the Boston Red Sox lineup after dominating all season both offensively and defensively.

Sox Lose Series Opener With the Angels

The Red Sox headed into a 4 game series with the Angels who are in the middle of a division race with the A’s, so it seems like the Halos have a lot more to be playing for than the Red Sox. The Sox could help out their former teammates Lester, Gomes, Crisp, Lowrie, Reddick, Moss and Punto if they took a few games from the Angels, but it seems like they were unable to get that accomplished...

Dustin Pedroia Back In Red Sox Lineup After Exiting Game Friday Night

The Boston Red Sox lost 5-3 to the Houston Astros on Friday night, snapping a four game winning streak. Thankfully, they didn’t lose anything more than that.

Red Sox’s Sixth-Inning Explosion Powers Series-Opening Win Over Astros

BOSTON — Sometimes, one inning is all it takes. For the Red Sox on Thursday, that inning was the sixth. Boston sent 12 men to the plate in the bottom half of that frame, roughing up Houston Astros starter Scott Felman and two relievers for a season-high seven runs en route to a 9-4, come-from-behind victory at Fenway Park. “We came to life,” manager John Farrell said after...

Boston Red Sox Thoughts and Observations

As most know by now, the Boston Red Sox were aggressive movers at the deadline and completely changed their entire framework. GM Ben Cherington has been on the record as saying they turned down big prospect packages, for major league talent instead and it has shown. What was a veteran pitching staff has become a youth filled rotation. The offense however has changed dramatically...

Brock Holt Will Continue To See ‘Nearly Everyday’ At-Bats With Red Sox

BOSTON — Brock Holt was in the Red Sox’s lineup Sunday, as he had been the previous nine games and every other game since he joined the club April 18. Don’t expect that to change anytime soon, either. Despite Will Middlebrooks rejoining the major-league team last week, the Red Sox are not approaching third base as a straight right-left platoon, manager John Farrell said before...

'Cuban Missle' Off-Target?: Not In Sox Lineup

Apparently, new Red Sox OF Yoenis Cespedes—AKA 'The Cuban Missle'—has not yet landed in Boston. Or, if he has, he's not 'suited-up, ready to roll' tonight against The Evil Empire. The Red Sox will be sending out the following extremely odd line-up tonight:  Brock Holt RF, Dustin Pedroia 2B, David Ortiz DH, Mike Napoli 1B, Allen Craig LF, Xander Bogaerts SS...

Red Sox Designate August As ‘Jimmy Fund Month’ With Numerous Fundraising Events

When it comes to the Boston Red Sox, seemingly every month has a connection to the Jimmy Fund, but the longstanding relationship goes to another level during August. So it makes sense that the Sox are designating August as “Jimmy Fund Month.” The team made that formal announcement on Friday morning, as it gets set to begin a month filled with charitable endeavors benefiting the...

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...
