Red Sox Notes: Shane Victorino Showing What Boston Missed This Season

The Major League Baseball trade deadline is six days away. The cries for the Boston Red Sox to sell have never been louder. The Red Sox dropped their fourth straight game Friday against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. Junichi Tazawa suffered the loss after imploding in the seventh inning of Boston’s 6-4 defeat. The Red Sox now are nine games below .500 (47-56) with 59 tilts...

Gotta be honest: when I think of food to fuel an athlete, “Hawaiian sweet rolls” doesn’t spring to mind. But who am I to judge? Shane’s walking around with two World Series rings while I can barely put my pants on without giving myself a hernia. Anyway, here’s a commercial with Shane catching rolls in Fenway Park. You’re welcome. The post Man, Does Shane Victorino Love...

Red Sox’s Offense Hits New Low In Blowout Loss To Blue Jays

The Boston Red Sox broke up Marcus Stroman’s no-hit bid Thursday afternoon with no outs in the top of the seventh. And … that’s about it. Shane Victorino’s bloop single was the only hit the Red Sox managed against the rookie right-hander — or any Toronto Blue Jays pitcher, for that matter — who tossed seven scoreless innings to lead the Jays to an 8-0 victory at Rogers...

Sox Suffer One-Hit Humiliation; Fall To Jays, 8-0

(AP Photo/The Canadian Press, Nathan Denette)Remember that small glimmer of hope you felt when the Red Sox showed some life coming out of the All-Star break? OK, dash that glimmer. Boston lost for the third time in four games in America Lite, falling 8-0 at SkyDome this afternoon. Being shut out is bad enough, but being one-hit by a 23-year old rookie is downright humiliating.

Red Sox-Blue Jays Live: Shane Victorino Leads Off While Brock Holt Rests

4:45 p.m. ET: That infamous laggard, Brock Holt, is out of the lineup again Wednesday. It’s the second time in more than two months he’s gotten the day off. Must be nice. In all seriousness, Holt certainly wasn’t going to complain about so much playing time, but fatigue might have been a factor in his 0-for-4 performance Tuesday. With Holt out, Shane Victorino takes over in...

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...
