This weekend in MLB: The good, The bad, and the ugly

I don’t consider myself a baseball lover, I watch baseball - if only because there isn’t much else on the brain drainer during the dog days of summer. The World Cup was amazing and only served to remind me the MLB season is way too long and filled with too many meaningless games. It’s not that I find baseball boring, its just monotonous. Sure exciting things happen but not...

Jackie Bradley Jr.’s Defense Will Test Validity Of MLB Gold Glove Award

BOSTON — Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. should be a front-runner for a Gold Glove in the American League. The reality is he probably won’t be given a second look without continued offensive improvement. Bradley keeps showing that he’s already an elite defensive center fielder. He’s deserving of strong Gold Glove consideration this season, though history has shown that...

Another One Run Game, But A Win Is A Win!

The Red Sox had rookie Rubby De La Rosa on the mound, but they also had the excitement and energy of the return of Shane Victorino from the DL. Victorino was activated earlier in the day and Mookie Betts was optioned back to Pawtucket as the corresponding move.  De La Rosa pitching 7 strong innings and a towering moon shot of a HR put the Sox ahead by a measly run.  The Sox had...

On Jon Lester, no easy solution for Red Sox

Jon Lester will win the popularity contest in his contract dance with the Red Sox, but will the Sox succumb to fan pressure or will they continue with their current business philosophy? Polls show that Red Sox fans want Lester re-signed. Yet they don’t seem to like long-term contracts. Not many were upset that the Sox passed on shelling out $153 million over seven years for game...

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...

Where are the SB’s?

As the Red Sox still remain far under .500 at the all-star break, the issue of base stealing has to be a factor. From a squad which stole 123 last season (third in the AL) while being caught 19 times, they have plummeted to 30, with 20 CS’s. There are many reasons for this drop. Jacoby Ellsbury took his 52 steals  to New York with him. His accomplishments were greater given the...
