The Kelly File Not-So-Prime Time; Sox Lose, 7-2

(AP Photo)Joe Kelly had made two good starts before yesterday. But, in the typically inconsistent manner of this team, he was horrific on Sunday. Kelly didn't make it out of the second inning—giving up seven earned runs in an eventual 7-2 loss. Dustin Pedroia, Mookie Betts and Mike Napoli each had two hits for Boston, but the team couldn't overcome the huge hole created early by...

Fantasy Roundup: Nap Attack

Mike Napoli was a sleeper candidate entering the season but has been a disappointment. There have been signs of promise, and the biggest of those came this weekend.

Now with 8 HR on the season, this is what we were expecting to see from him to start the season...

The Angels unintentionally woke up a sleeping offensive giant in Boston, dropping two of three games against the Red Sox for their first series loss since being swept in San Francisco three weeks ago.

Boxscore Breakdown #44: Repeat – Red Sox 6, Angels 1

Remember yesterday when I said that the Boxscore Breakdown for that game was basically going to be the same one as today? Yeah, I wasn’t kidding.

Mike Napoli Really, Really Loves Beating Up On His Former Teams

Let’s face it: most of the first two months of this season have been largely forgettable for Mike Napoli and at least forty percent of his facial hair. He spent most of that time looking up at the Mendoza line, and I’m gonna blame most of that performance on the bizarre Ryan Dempster-esque coif he was sporting. Mike Napoli is a guy who needs to go full buzzcut or go home. Anything...

Boxscore Breakdown #43: Nap time – Red Sox 8, Angels 3

Lesson #1: The Angels should never pitch to Mike Napoli Lesson #2: Never means NEVER Seriously, just walk him. Napoli lives to torture the Angels. It is all he does.

Mike Napoli’s Bat Powers Red Sox Offense

The Boston Red Sox offense showed some life this weekend. The team responded to a major lineup shuffle by Manager John Farrell. The shake-up saw Dustin Pedroia move to the lead-0ff spot with Hanley Ramirez flip-flopping with David Ortiz and Xander Bogaerts assuming the five spot in the order.
