Sox Need Pedro on the Mound

Pedro Martinez’ number was retired this week, two days after his Hall of Fame induction.  I’m going to pull a Rick Pitino and say “Pedro is not walking through that door anytime soon”. In a 3-page piece entitled “Pedro the Conqueror”, the Globe’s Bob Hohler recounted Martinez’ record with the Red Sox: 117-37, a winning percentage of .760, 11 strikeouts per 9...

Future could be coming soon Boston Red Sox pitching rotation

The Boston Red Sox pitching rotation continued it’s complete disregard for ERA (earned run average) in Boston’s Wednesday night 9-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox. Rick Porcello, who has probably been the most disappointing starter for the Red Sox this year, went just two innings on Wednesday, giving up six runs (five earned) and ten hits before being pulled. The loss lowered...

Too late: Cole Hamels does not want to go to the Red Sox

View image | gettyimages.com The Boston Red Sox could have had Cole Hamels. Instead, they decided that they would go with a starting rotation that included Clay Buchholz, Wade Miley, Joe Kelly, Justin Masterson, and Rick Porcello.

Sox Lose Another Game—And Possibly Mookie

(Getty Images)Pedro Martinez (whose #45 was retired at Fenway last night) gave up just four first-inning runs in all of 1999. Wade Miley gave up five earned runs in one inning last night. This difference tells you all you need to know about the 2015 Carmine Hose. Boston lost again—this time a 9-6 drubbing by the once-crappy Chicago White Sox. On top of everything, the Red Sox may...

Red Sox Wrap: Pitching Falters Again As White Sox Win Big At Fenway

BOSTON — With one of the greatest pitchers in major league history in attendance Monday night, the Boston Red Sox failed to put together a performance worthy of his presence.

Mookie Betts’ Over-The-Wall Catch Gives White Sox Bizarre Home Run (Video)

BOSTON — Jose Abreu hit one of the strangest home runs you will ever seen Monday at Fenway Park. Batting against Boston Red Sox starter Wade Miley in the sixth inning, the Chicago White Sox first baseman lifted a fly ball deep to right-center field. Red Sox center fielder Mookie Betts tracked the ball down and made a running catch at the warning track. At least, it looked like...

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...

Red Sox Notes: Another Wade Miley Start Wasted As Bullpen Implodes Again

Wade Miley has been by far the Boston Red Sox’s best starting pitcher since the All-Star break. But despite one fantastic start and another solid one, the left-hander has nothing but no-decisions to show for his efforts. Factors outside of Miley’s control again doomed him Thursday night as the Red Sox fell to the Houston Astros 5-4 to complete a winless seven-game road trip...

Trout Spoils Miley Gem, Take Koji Yard In 9th

For those of you too young to remember life before 2004, this is what Red Sox losses used to look like. Gut-wrenching, improbable, unfair walk-off losses on the road late at night. Mike Trout took Koji Uehara out of The Big A with two outs in the ninth to give the Halos a 1-0 win over Boston. Wade Miley took a no-hitter into the seventh inning—allowing just one walk until giving...

On Friday night, Miley was far less fortunate. The left-hander tossed seven-plus shutout innings Friday, yet the Red Sox fell 1-0 to the Los Angeles Angels at Angel...

According to MLB.com's Ian Browne, the post-All-Star Break Red Sox rotation will be: Wade Miley, Rick Porcello and Eduardo Rodriguez—in that order. Beyond the first three games against the Angels in Anaheim, there is no decision on who the subsequent starters will be. Frankly, we would have started the road trip with E-Rod—but, hey, no one asked us.

Refsnyder Shows Potential & Problems as Yankees Earn Series Win Against Red Sox

The people asked and the New York Yankees brain trust delivered. On Saturday, the Yankees #5 prospect, 2B Rob Refsnyder, made his major league debut against the Boston Red Sox.

Wade Miley’s Disputable Balk Sets Stage For Red Sox’s Loss To Yankees

BOSTON — Home plate umpire Angel Hernandez apparently saw something others didn’t. Hernandez called a balk on Red Sox starter Wade Miley in the fifth inning of Boston’s 8-6 loss to the New York Yankees on Sunday at Fenway Park. The call wasn’t exactly the difference in the game — it enabled the Yankees to tie the score 3-3 — but it was questionable at best. And Miley...
