Boston Red Sox trade rumors: Mike Napoli and Shane Victorino edition

Sox Lose Walk Off Style This Time

The Red Sox keep finding new and inventive ways to lose games.  In the series finale with the Astros they had the lead, lost the lead, tied the game up and then lost the game walk off style in the 9th.  The Sox went 0-7 on the road trip and now have lost 8 games straight.  The Sox looked like they might be able to make a run before the All Star Break, but all of that hope is long...

Mike Napoli’s Power Surge One Of Few Bright Spots Of Red Sox’s Road Trip

Let’s get this out of the way first: The Boston Red Sox’s recently completed seven-game road trip was a disaster in every sense of the word. It effectively erased any progress the team had made before the All-Star break, and with it any reasonable hope of contending for a playoff berth. That being said, there was one Red Sox player who seemed to avoid the tornado of destruction...

Boston Red Sox: keys to a strong second half

Dealt a hand of injuries, disappointing offense, and atrocious starting pitching, the Boston Red Sox turned few heads with their first half performance in 2015.
