AL East Standings 4/24/15

It’s time to check back in with how the Sox are doing in the AL East Standings. Sure, the Red Sox are still in first place, but now they are sharing it with two other teams.  The Sox are in a three way tie for 1st place with the Blue Jays and the Yankees.  The Red Sox were able to split a 4 game series with the O’s and then they lost a series to the Rays.  The Sox are lucky...

Rick Porcello – Feeling the Pressure

The lack of an ace continues to dog the Red Sox rotation.. Rick Porcello, Wade Miley, Clay Buchholz, and Justin Masterson all have 5.50- plus ERA’s, and Joe Kelly’s is over 4. The team does not seem to want to look outside the organization, at least for the present. According the the Globe’s Nick Cafardo, Cole Hamels will still command a high price-perhaps including Mookie...

Rays Walk Off, Sox Lose First Series of the Season

The Red Sox came into this game hoping for a win in order to not have their first lost series of 2015.  The Sox had Clay Buchholz on the mound vs. Jake Odorizzi for the Rays.  Buchholz has been his usual inconsistent self this season, so fans wondered which version of Clay would take the mound.  Buchholz pitched well, but without any run support he was unable to get himself or...

Sox Lead Early, but Rays Were The Winners in the End

The Sox took the first game of the series when they squeaked out a 1-0 victory behind Wade Miley’s strong start.  Today the Sox would have Joe Kelly on the mound vs. Nathan Karns for the Rays.  So far in the season, Kelly has been the most consistent starting pitcher for the Sox and while he would continue that trend for a while, he struggled in the 6th and it ended up being...

Sox Only Need One Run to Take 1st Game Against the Rays!

The Red Sox headed into Tropicana Field for the first series of the season.  They had Wade Miley on the mound vs. Chris Archer for the Rays.  Miley was still looking for his first win in a Sox uniform and tonight he would need to keep the Rays off the scoreboard in order to get it.  Miley got the job done and then the bullpen brought it home for him. The game was scoreless until...

Ortiz Suspended One Game for Ump Bump

David Ortiz was ejected during Sunday’s game for complaining about the umpire calling a check swing a strike twice during the game.  Once Ortiz was ejected he made sure to let the umpires know his full feelings before leaving the field. It was announced today that Ortiz was suspended for one game and fined an undisclosed amount.  He was suspended because it is claimed that he...

Sox Beat O’s and Split Series in Rain Shortened Game

The Red Sox have the 11:00am start on Marathon Monday, so players on both teams probably showed up exhausted to the ballpark.  The Sox had Justin Masterson on the mound vs. Wei-Yin Chen for the O’s.  Not only was it an early start, but it was a rainy, windy, cold day out at the park.  The Sox were able to battle through behind Masterson’s strong start and breeze to the win...

Sox Lose Second Straight Game Behind Poor Pitching

The Red Sox were sold to us this off season as a potent offense with some question marks about who the ace of the rotation would be.  The Sox offense has shown promise, but it has also shown that the pitching rotation has more questions than answers.  Rick Porcello took the mound this afternoon in the game against the O’s and he struggled early and often.  The Sox bats weren’t...

Orioles Take Second Game of Series

The Red Sox entered the game having taken the first game of the series and looking for more.  The Sox had Clay Buchholz on the mound who had one of the worst outing of his career in his last start vs. Chris Tillman for the O’s.  The Sox would go down early and then the O’s would put the game away in the late innings.  All in all, it wasn’t the Sox’s day. Clay Buchholz...

Red Sox Walk Off in the 9th!

The Red Sox set off a 4 game series with the O’s with Joe Kelly on the mound vs. Ubaldo Jimenez.  Kelly had just come off a spectacular start in New York and hoped to build on that.  Kelly pitched well, but the game ended up in the hands of the bullpen. The game stayed scoreless until the 4th inning and that’s where it got exciting.  Kelly gave up the first run of the game...

Nats Beat Up Sox on Their Way Outta Town

The Red Sox had already taken the series before the game began this afternoon, but were hoping for their first sweep of the season.  The Sox had Wade Miley on the mound verses Gio Gonzalez for the Nationals.  Miley, who is usually a ground ball pitcher, looked to be in trouble early when a lot of balls were being sent high in the air.  Miley would only last a few innings and then...

Joe Kelly – Big Win

Red Sox hurler Joe Kelly has a reputation as a bit of a flake. Before Game 6 of the 2013 NLCS, he engaged in a “staredown” of Dodger outfielder Scott Van Slyke, with neither man moving for 15 minutes as the ground crew prepared the field. He also wears glasses to better see his catcher’s signs, but removes them when he hits. But early in this Sox season, he was all business...

Koji Gets First Save of the Season in Comeback Win!

The Red Sox took the field again at Fenway against the Nationals and this time had Justin Masterson on the mound verses Stephen Strasburg for the Nats.  Masterson looked pretty good until the 5th inning when everything fell apart for him.  However the Red Sox battled back and capitalized on Nationals errors in the 7th to take the lead and keep it for good. Masterson gave up the...

Mookie Betts Is A Superstar in Fenway Opener!

The Red Sox opened up the season at Fenway with a pretty 4-2 record.  The Sox had Rick Porcello on the mound who they hoped would not follow Clay Buchholz’s lead from the night before.  Porcello pitched 8 strong innings and got his first win in a Sox uniform.  The true star of the game though was Mookie Betts who not only robbed Harper of a HR in the 1st, made an excellent steal...
