Farrell: 'Merit' Will Determine Rotation Order

While past performance and reputation will play a part, it looks as if merit will be the driving force in deciding the order of the Red Sox starting rotation. As it should be. Given the relative equality of the five candidates, whoever steps up in Spring Training should get the Opening Day start. When asked about this issue, manager John Farrell stated, "Merit is one. You factor...

Who's the ace? Red Sox starters want to prove they have many

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Who's the ace? It's a question the Boston Red Sox have been asked to address since Jon Lester was traded last summer and then signed a $155 million, six-year contract with the Chicago Cubs rather than return to Fenway Park. ''There's only so many times you can ask somebody, `How are you going to do this without an ace of the staff?''' right-hander Clay Buchholz...

Clay Buchholz Will Face NU Huskies Tuesday

(Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports)While an Opening Day starter has not yet been named, Clay Buchholz will toe the rubber in the first Red Sox contest of 2015—a Tuesday matinee against Northeastern University. He will likely only hurl one inning—or until he gets knocked out of the game by the Hardball Huskies. Fittingly, Buchholz made the final start of the 2014 season—and will...

2015 season preview: Boston Red Sox

It’s been an odd three years for the 2013 World Champions, hasn’t it? First, the bottom fell out on 2012. Then, the Sox won the 2013 World Series. Next, in 2014, Boston fell *back* to last in the AL East…and the only players left from that 2012 disaster are Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, Clay Buchholz, Daniel Nava, and Junichi Tazawa. But the Red Sox have retooled for the 2015...

Sox Owner Henry Supports Pitch Clock In MLB

Red Sox principal owner John Henry believes a 30-second pitch clock will migrate from the AA and AAA levels (where it will be in force this season) to the major leagues "in a couple of years"—and he likes it. Curiously, though, Henry says he is not concerned with the length of games, just the pace. While there is a subtle difference, they are clearly connected. Here's his puzzling...

Red Sox appear content with rotation despite lack of true ace

The Boston Red Sox’s rotation could be looked at in one of two ways: They either don’t have a No. 1 starter or they have five pitchers capable of being No. 1 starters.     Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington and manager John Farrell are subscribing to the latter theory. While no one is going to mistake Clay Buchholz, Joe Kelly, Rick Porcello, Wade Miley or Justin Masterson...
