Sox Play Spoiler and Take 3 Out of 4 From the Royals

The Red Sox had taken 2 out of 3 against the Royals and hoped to make it 3 out of 4 to win the series.  The Sox aren’t going to be playing baseball in October, but that doesn’t mean they can’t play spoiler to those who hope to get into some post season action.  Joe Kelly had one bad inning and was looking down the line of a loss until the Sox bats got him back in front by...

De La Rosa Struggles in Sox Loss

The Red Sox had taken the first two games of the series in KC, but they were unable to win 3 in a row.  Rubby De La Rosa took to the mound for the Sox, however he was unable to get the job done and only lasted 4 innings.  Additionally, the Sox bats were cold once again, so they were in line for a loss pretty early. The Sox went down early when De La Rosa gave up 2 runs in the 1st...

2015 Rotation

What will the Sox starting rotation look like in 2015? That’s a difficult question. The “rehersal group” which now consists of Clay Buchholz, Joe Kelly, Anthony Renaudo, Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa and Brandon Workman has produced mixed results. At this point, Buchholz, despite his maddening inconsistency, Kelly and Renaudo seem to have the inside track. Renaudo, who had...

Sox 99 – Cooling Off

The roaring Sox cooled a bit in mid-August, but hung on in a three-team wild card race. Brian Daubach, now being referred to as the Belleville (Illinois) Basher, assumed the hero’s role once again on the 17th, with a three-run double for a 6-5 walkoff win over Oakland. Daubach, who had barely missed a grand slam to right a few pitches before, connected off Tim Worrell. Struggling...

Sox 99 – Booming Bats

Booming bats and adequate pitching pushed the Red Sox ahead in the wild card race. They first went to Kansas City and emerged with a two-game sweep. The first was a 9-6 seesaw contest which saw Boston rally form a 3-1 deficit to go ahead 5-3 entering the ninth. In a strange set of events, closer Tim Wakefield fanned 4 hitters but, with his knuckler presenting problems for Jason Varitek...

Veterans and SPos

As the Red Sox wind down this sadly disappointing campaign, one statistic stands out. It is only published once a week. The abbreviation is SPos- average with runners in scoring positon. A glance at the Sox stats would suggest that the youngsters (with the exception of Brock Holt) are largely responsible for the team’s hitting woes. As of Sunday, Mookie Betts, Xander Bogearts...

Sox Beat Royals Behind Webster’s Strong Start

Kelly Gets First Sox Win Behind Power of Sox Youth

Joe Kelly had been traded to the Sox a month ago and he was still looking for his first win in a Sox uniform. Some of it was due to poor pitching and some of it was due to just dumb luck. Kelly would take the mound against the Yankees and finally be able to put a Sox win in his record books mainly due to the offensive strength of the Sox youngins Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts...

Buchholz Pitches Complete Game Shutout Against Rays

In Clay Buchholz’s last start he had a complete game shutout going and then it all fell apart in the 9th inning.  Today Buchholz would be in the same situation after 8 strong shutout innings, but then in the 9th he would be able to accomplish what he wasn’t able to 5 days ago.  Clay Buchholz is definitely finishing off the season strong and hopefully giving us all hope that...
