Exploring a Yoenis Cespedes extension

Yoenis Cespedes has been everything the Mets hoped for during his first three games with the team. The 29-year-old outfielder connected for three doubles and drove in four runs during Monday night’s rout of the Miami Marlins, and yet his presence on a resurgent Mets team feels like a mirage due to his contractual status. Cespedes must be released by the Mets before free agency...

Pondering Another Big August Red Sox Trade

Three years ago, a struggling Red Sox team dumped a big part of their roster — and their payroll — on the Los Angeles Dodgers, shipping Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, and Josh Beckett to Los Angeles in exchange for a few prospects and a lot of financial relief. The deal freed up the team to reallocate a bunch of that money to free agents a few months later, and after hitting...

August Trade Deadline Could Be Red Sox Savior

While everyone pays attention to the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline (which Boston essentially sat out), there is still the waiver-based August trade period that can prove valuable to the Red Sox. Remember, it was an August waiver deal that sent Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and (the key to the transaction) Nick Punto to the Dodgers on August 25, 2012. More importantly...

Larry Lucchino to Step Down As Red Sox CEO

Thanks to The Boston Herald (the lone newspaper in town not in the hip pocket of John Henry) we learn that Larry Lucchino will leave his post as President and CEO of the Red Sox at the end of this year. Lucchino's tenure has been a stormy and—at times—controversial one. He was widely perceived to be the Darth Vader to Theo Epstein's Luke Skywalker—an edgy relationship that...

Ben Cherington-Lack of Identity

The Herald’s Scott Lauber was correct. The Red Sox made only two minor moves before the trade deadline. This seems to reflect Ben Cherington’s continuing lack of identity. In his press conferences he seems uncomfortable and speaks in platitudes. Meanwhile, the Sox have one of the worst records in baseball and are headed for their third last place finish in four years and...

Hanley Ramirez, Pablo Sandoval Out Of Red Sox’s Starting Lineup Vs. Rays

It's Time For Serious House Cleaning At Fenway

The Boston Red Sox are now on pace to lose at least 90 games for the third time in the last four years. Sure they won it all in 2013, but—even in baseball—one for four is a crappy percentage. The one constant during that timeframe—other than the soccer-obsessed owners—is General Manager Ben Cherington. While it may be unfair, Cherington has got to go. While we think Manager...

Boston Red Sox: analyzing the first base dilemma

Mike Napoli There might be some position shuffling on the horizon for the Boston Red Sox. Entering the season, the Red Sox seemed set: Mike Napoli at first, Hanley Ramirez in left, and David Ortiz as the DH. A little past the midpoint, things aren’t quite as simple. After a monster spring training, Napoli finally seemed healthy after struggling through 2014. The regular season...

Red Sox Midseason Grades- Outfielders And DH
