You Can Still Build a Full and Complete Bullpen

Here’s what we know about what’s left on the free agent market: If you wanted a bat, you should have acted months ago. Hanley Ramirez, Pablo Sandoval, Michael Cuddyer, Russell Martin and others came off the board pretty quickly. With Nori Aoki in San Francisco and Colby Rasmus in Houston, the best remaining bat might […]

What should the Red Sox do at catcher?

The Boston Red Sox have been one of the most active teams in Major League Baseball this offseason. They have brought in more offense by signing free agents Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez and have been active in the reconstruction of their pitching rotation through acquisitions of Justin Masterson, Rick Porcello, and Wade Miley. Still, even after they dealt Yoenis Cespedes to the...

Red Sox outfielders taking nothing for granted

Eric D. Schabell Contributing Writer We all have heard that the Red Sox outfield is loaded with potential suitors for the three available spots at Fenway. There are some really good players in Hanley Ramirez, Rusney Castillo, Shane Victorino, Mookie Betts, Allen Craig, Brock Holt and Nava. (He and Holt represent the only two left-handed bats in the mix.)A lot of players, not a lot...

John Farrell: Hanley Ramirez Will Bat Clean-Up

Appearing on WEEI's Hot Stove program, Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated that Hanley Ramirez will likely hit fourth—in the clean-up spot of Boston's 2015 batting order. Given the abundance of offensive firepower in the new line-up, it poses a bit of a challenge to array those weapons in the most effective way. A likely scenario would have Mookie Betts in the lead-off spot...

John Farrell Discusses Red Sox Lineup, Sees Hanley Ramirez In Cleanup Spot

The Boston Red Sox didn’t have enough power in their lineup last season. Now they might have too much. It doesn’t make manager John Farrell’s job easy when it comes to organizing the lineup, but it’s a good problem to have. Plus, Farrell already has an idea of how things might shape up come April. The Red Sox skipper appeared on WEEI on Thursday...

The State Of 'The Nation'—January 2, 2015

As we open a new year, we can confidently proclaim that the 'State Of The Nation' is—umm— kinda, sorta OK (with caveats). Clearly, last year's woefully inadequate offense has been dramatically upgraded with the additions of Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval. The wholesale dumping of virtually the entire 2014 pitching rotation has been partially addressed by the signing of three...

Monday Links: Red Sox just about done, still could add reliever

With December just about over, the Red Sox will head into the new year with almost their entire roster figured out. In the line-up the team made significant offensive upgrades with the additions of Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez. Sandoval, who should solve the third base problem for the foreseeable future, will bring a .294/.346/.465 career slash to Boston. Likewise, Ramirez will...

Red Sox’s Holiday Wish List Includes Healthy Pedroia, Leadoff Stability

The holiday season is much more festive after a World Series win. The Red Sox don’t have much to be thankful for this year after stumbling to a last-place finish in the American League East. A lot went wrong for Boston in 2014, leaving the club with many holiday wishes as it prepares for the 2015 Major League Baseball season. The Red Sox already have been busy this winter. They’ve...

Yes Pepper, Yes Fungo, On Gonner, On Blitzem!

Hanley Ramirez knows how to endear himself to his once and future fan base. The newly-minted prodigal son posted a positive holiday message on TWITTER that evoked all things Fenway. Accompanied by pictures of him working out and hitting in the cage, he declared himself "ready to play pepper with the Green Monstah". Beautiful. Eddie Popowski could not be reached for comment.

What Can Sox Expect From Hanley Ramirez?

Hanley Back In the DayI can still remember the game—a St. Patrick's Day tilt at City Of Palms Park in March of 2005. A raw young kid named Hanley Ramirez was in the lineup for the Red Sox—resplendent in the team's holiday green uniform. Little did we know that we were watching a soon-to-be Rookie Of The Year (2006), perennial MVP candidate and three-time All-Star. Today, that...

Have the Winter Meeting Moves Made the Los Angeles Dodgers Better?

Baseball’s Winter Meetings were held in San Diego this year. But it was another California city that stole the show. No team, save for Billy Beane’s Oakland A’s, has had a more radical transition to a roster this off-season. Consider everything that went down for the Dodgers since just Wednesday. In the middle of the afternoon, the Dodgers traded for the Philadelphia Phillies’...

Be very afraid of the revamped Los Angeles Dodgers

Just when we had gotten use to the new Los Angeles Dodgers and their bottomless, oft-used wallet, they’ve gone and changed it up once again. There was once a time where the Dodgers couldn’t say no to an expensive veteran and could give a contract extension to just about anyone on the roster. They were a good team, but not the elite team many had thought they could become. But...

Tigers make Winter Meetings splash, getting Yoenis Cespedes and Alfredo Simon

Sometimes, there’s a reason baseball trade rumors just won’t die. They just need time to become true. Ever since the Red Sox signed Hanley Ramirez and announced he would play left field, Yoenis Cespedes became the odd man out of the Boston outfield. Actually, he was probably on the outside looking in before Ramirez was signed, as the Red Sox roster was loaded with outfielders...

Right-handed power. It’s the buzzword — or perhaps the buzzphrase — of the off-season.
