Will The Boston Red Sox Pitching Staff Hit Their Spot In 2016?

The Boston Red Sox made one of the biggest free-agent splashes this offseason by signing David Price to a record-setting, seven-year, $217 million contract. Yet, the question remains if adding Price and trading for Roenis Elias will be enough to solve the numerous problems the Sox’ pitching staff had in 2015. In the American League, Boston hurlers, collectively, ranked 14th in...

2016 Seattle Mariners Spring Preview – The Rotation

This time of the year some of us have grown accustomed to watching the Seattle Seahawks play for a couple of weeks longer, but as it turns out getting to the Super Bowl three years in a row is actually pretty difficult. The Seahawks made it seem like a very reasonable task, though, dominating several opponents late in the season even after having lost many key players to injury along...

The Boston Red Sox’s $217 million man

The inevitable rise and fall of an organization is a common theme that traverses throughout the sports world. Often when an organization finds itself at a crossroads, in need of reflection and big personnel changes, costly modifications are required. Such was the case for the Boston Red Sox following the 2015 season. The Red Sox won the 2013 World Series, defeating the St. Louis...

Boston Red Sox 2015-2016 Offseason Report Card

After a highly-publicized 2014-15 offseason which saw the addition of players such as Pablo Sandoval, Hanley Ramirez, Wade Miley, and Rick Porcello, as well as the departure of fan favorite Jon Lester, the Boston Red Sox put up a disappointing 2015 campaign, finishing 78-84, dead last in the American League East for the third time in […]

Much the way we discussed the Mariners lineup possibilities, there are just as many interesting nuances and numbers to sort through when you try to come up with the M’s starting...

Seattle Mariners: Defending Dipoto

Jerry Dipoto has already made several moves as the General Manager of the Seattle Mariners, some bigger than others, and some more controversial than others. Dipoto received quite a bit of criticism from the Wade Miley trade, as several Mariners fans were not pleased to see Dipoto trade away Carson Smith. They felt that Dipoto got the short end of the stick from the trade which saw...

Rebuilidng the Red Sox: Southpaws Up North

Even before acquiring David Price, the Red Sox’s starting pitching depth chart was a little different than usual. On one side, the team had Wade Miley, Eduardo Rodriguez, Henry Owens, and Brian Johnson. On the other, it was Clay Buchholz, Rick Porcello, and Joe Kelly. As you can probably tell, each side refers to the arm with which the player pitches: there were four left-handed...

Seattle Mariners: Trader Jerry strikes again! New first baseman and new pitchers

The offseason is not boring with “Trader Jerry” Dipoto as GM Mariners General Manager Jerry Dipoto shows us why he is called “Trader Jerry”; Dipoto acquired first baseman Adam Lind from the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday for three teenage minor league pitchers (right-handers Daniel Missaki, Carlos Herrera and Freddy Peralta).  The Mariners also acquired starter Wade Miley...

Diamondbacks Pay for Ace, Get Shelby Miller

Just yesterday, we thought the Wade Miley trade might’ve been lopsided. And, you know, maybe. But now we’re on another level. Forget the Wade Miley trade. Now we have the Shelby Miller trade. Kudos to the Diamondbacks — they got Miller, who they wanted. They also got Gabe Speier, who is a player. But Miller didn’t come for free. In exchange, the Braves got Ender Inciarte...

Seattle Mariners rumors: Wade Miley edition

It took a few months, but Jerry Dipoto finally made a move I don’t like when he traded RHP Roenis Elias and RHP Carson Smith for LHP Wade Miley and RHP Jonathan Aro. Sure, the Leonys Martín deal seemed like much less of a buy low when the M’s gave up young stud Patrick Kivlehan as the PTBNL, and you could argue that Steve Clevenger was not a big enough return for Mark Trumbo...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Boston Red Sox Trade Wade Miley to the Seattle Mariners

The Winter Meetings is a fun time of year. It’s awesome to watch general managers work. You lose a guy and then go right out and get another guy. The Boston Red Sox and Seattle Mariners consummated a trade, but the roots of that trade came earlier in the weekend. The Dodgers lost Zack Greinke, so they signed Hisahsi Iwakuma away from the Mariners. Newly minted general manager Jerry...

Red Sox obtain reliever Smith from Mariners for LHP Miley

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Boston Red Sox have bolstered a suddenly imposing bullpen, acquiring right-hander Carson Smith and lefty Roenis Elias on Monday from the Seattle Mariners for left-hander Wade Miley and reliever Jonathan Aro in the first trade announced at the winter meetings.

Red Sox Turn Wade Miley Into Potential Bullpen Ace

Most of the time, when you hear about a transaction, you think “yeah, that makes sense.” Free-agent contract terms are seldom surprising. And trades between teams are also seldom surprising, in terms of how much each side seems to be worth. Every so often, though, a move will give you pause. There was a trade between the Red Sox and the Mariners, Monday, and it arrived a little...
