Alejandro De Aza Draws Second Straight Start As Red Sox Go For Sweep

Torey Lovullo is sticking to his guns when it comes to his outfield rotation. The acting Boston Red Sox manager said earlier this month he’d be sure to allocate starts for all five of his outfielders, and he’s done so this weekend, penciling Alejandro De Aza in for a second straight start Sunday against the New York Mets. Before Saturday’s game, during which De Aza went 0...

In a Lost Season, the Red Sox Still Have Me Punching Walls

Now wait, before you judge: punching walls is a good thing. At least as I see it. Sure, the wall hates it and the noise gives the neighbors even more fodder for their eventual lawsuit against me. But if the Boston Red Sox, owners of the worst record in the American League, can still inspire me to bouts of screaming, drinking and wall-sparring, then they’re doing something right...

Dave Dombrowski: Hanley Ramirez’s Move To First Base ‘Seems Logical’ (Video)

Boston Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski says he likes what he sees from his team’s three young outfielders — Jackie Bradley Jr., Mookie Betts and Rusney Castillo. But that means he needs to find a different spot for current left fielder Hanley Ramirez. It appears first base is the likely landing spot for Ramirez, who was a late scratch from Friday’s...

The Red Sox should trade Blake Swihart, Travis Shaw and Jackie Bradley Jr this offseason...or not

Scott Levesque Twitter: @mendoza_linesI've compared the 2015 Red Sox to having tiny pieces of bamboo shoved down my fingernails - it's painful. Yet, the Red Sox have a lingering question that continues to hover over the organization as they finish out another last place season:What will the Red Sox do with their young talent?More specifically, will the Red Sox keep Travis Shaw...

The call was challenged...

Jackie Bradley Jr. Explains Decision Making Behind Fifth-Inning Blunder (Video)

The Boston Red Sox were primed to cushion their lead in the fifth inning of Tuesday’s 5-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox. With the score tied at two,  Jackie Bradley Jr. on first and Ryan Hanigan standing just 90 feet away on third with two outs, Bradley was caught stealing on a 1-0 count with Mookie Betts at the plate. Whether it proved costly we’ll never know (Betts could have...

Don’t Test Jackie Bradley Jr.’s Arm, Son

Photo by Matt Stone Another lousy Red Sox game in a lousy season on a lousy day in which we learned Don Orsillo will be leaving NESN at the end of the year.

You know, the Orsillo-free future. The post Don...

Jackie Bradley Jr. Continues To Provide Offense In Red Sox’s Loss To Royals

BOSTON — Jackie Bradley Jr.’s resurgence at the plate over the last month has been one of the most encouraging developments of the season for the Boston Red Sox. Bradley, hitting from the eighth spot in the lineup, went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two runs scored and 2 RBI in Sunday’s 8-6 loss to the Kansas City Royals at Fenway Park. “He’s right where he needs to be.

'Vanillas In The Mist', Red Sox Lose Two Leads, Fall, 8-6

(Getty Images)It was a rainy, extremely wacky loss at Fenway Park today. Up by two runs in the ninth, the Red Sox pulled off one of the oddest plays in years—turning a misplayed wall triple into an inside-the-park-out-at home. That was the first out. Then Junichi Tazawa pitched like he was in the Little League World Series, giving up four earned runs on six hits. Lead gone, Sox...

Recap - Tazawa blows the save, Sox drop the finale

Jackie Bradley Jr.’s Outfield Legend Growing By The Day For Red Sox

BOSTON — Jackie Bradley Jr.’s nickname is a simple one: his initials. But Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly has taken to referring to the 25-year-old outfielder by a different moniker.

Yeah, that sounds a lot like Bradley, who during...
