Tampa 'Blues Brothers' Lead Way Over Sox, 4-1

A rookie starting pitcher named Matt Andriese and a refugee from a Blue Brothers movie named Jake Elmore combined to lay the loss on Boston (clad in their double-knit 1975 PJs). Andriese...

A View Of The Season From Across The Pond

by Dave Merry, UK CorrespondentAt the time of writing, the Red Sox have just lost 8-6 to the Orioles and are now 32-42 and in last place. Another poor season is in the cards, but for this baseball newbie Englishman, it's still been fantastic. This is my view on the season so far.The campaign started well and—arrogantly—I thought it was me bringing the Red Sox good luck but as...

Sox Score Enough But Lose To O's Anyway, 8-6

Xander At Bat Today (Exclusive FenwayNation Photo) It's axiomatic. If you score six runs at your home park, you should win about 3/4 of the time. Not this 2015 edition of The Carmine Hose! Today, on a gorgeous 80 degree day at Fenway, they tallied six times and still lost to Baltimore, 8-6. Blame this one on rookie starter Eduardo Rodriguez. The 22-year old lefty took a no-hitter...

Catch-22: Three Red Sox Kids And The Future

Specifically, they are: Xander Bogaerts, Mookie Betts and Eduardo Rodriguez. In this dismal season, these three are rare shining lights of baseball competence. One can...

Sox Bash Their Way to a Series Win Against Royals

The Red Sox came into the series with a split and were hoping to leave Kansas City with a series win.  The Sox had Wade Miley on the mound vs. Chris Young for the Royals.  Miley had another strong outing on the mound and he got more than enough run support from the Sox bats. The Sox offense got out to another early lead when Hanley Ramirez hit a solo homerun in the 2nd inning....

The progression of Xander Bogaerts

The 2015 season has been nothing short of a disaster for the Boston Red Sox. Picked by many to be division champs before the season started, the team has fallen flat in just about every aspect possible. Some of it was predictable, some of it wasn’t. An offense that, on paper, was supposed to be the best in the business hasn’t come close to living up to the hype. Hanley Ramirez crushed...

Red Sox Put On 'Brave' Front, Still Lose, 4-2

Jonny Gomes Back At Fenway (FenwayNation Photo)It has come this. You no longer go to Fenway Park to see the Red Sox win—you go to marvel at the inventive ways they lose. Such was the case last night. It wasn't one particular thing that caused the 4-2 loss to the one-time Boston Braves, it was an amalgam of bad defense, stupid base running, lackadaisical outfield play, crappy starting...
