Doubront Traded to Cubs for PTBNL

Felix Doubront has said openly that he does not appreciate the bullpen role that he has been given by the Red Sox for much of the season.  Doubront indicated that he considers himself a starter, so if he is not to start with the Red Sox he would like to be traded to a team where he would be given that opportunity.  Doubront has also had some poor showing on the mound when he has...

Sox Lose Another Game, This Time 4-2 to the Jays

Last week the Jays starter Stroman almost threw a no hitter against the Red Sox and the team would get a chance to get their revenge last night.  Unfortunately the Red Sox still had trouble with Stroman and Rubby De La Rosa didn’t have his usual dominant stuff at the friendly confines of Fenway. Toronto went out to a quick lead when Rasmus hit a solo HR in the 2nd inning.  Sox...

Say Goodbye to Bucky

I’m sure Clay Buchholz is a good and decent man. He appears to be happily married with a 4-year-old daughter. He does a lot of charity work. He has never been considered a clubhouse distraction. I have come to the conclusion, however, that this should be his last year with the Red Sox, no matter what happens to Jon Lester. The ups and downs of Buchholz’s career are well-documented...

Sox Get Pummeled in Series Opener with the Jays

The Red Sox keep finding new and even more horrible ways to lose games.  The only real glimmer the Sox has had in the last week or so was the epic offensive beat down they had on the Jays in the series opener up in Toronto.  Well it looks like the Jays wanted to give the Sox a taste of their medicine in completely destroying the team last night on way to a devastating 14-1 loss...

Papi’s Homer Brings the Sox a Much Needed Win!

The Red Sox hadn’t been able to win a game at the Trop yet in 2014, but the big bat of David Ortiz would take care of that yesterday.  The Sox had AAA pitcher Allen Webster on the mound who struggled his way through his outing, but the 3 runs that David Ortiz put on the scoreboard would end up just barely holding up. Allen Webster was tapped to take Jake Peavy’s spot in the...

Sox Continue Skid With Another Loss to the Rays

The Red Sox seem destined to be sellers at the deadline and the losing streak hitting 5 games last night did nothing to try to change the minds of anyone in the Red Sox organization.  John Lackey was on the mound for the Sox and while he continued to pitch well, he got no run support on way to his 7th loss of the season. The top of the 1st had potential to have the Sox get an early...

Sox Send Peavy to Giants for 2 AAA Pitchers

It seemed like a matter of when, not if when it came to Jake Peavy being traded from the Red Sox.  Peavy was a big piece of the Sox winning it all in 2013 when he was sent to the Sox at the trade deadline.  Of course he will always be remembered for buying one of the duck boats that took the team on the World Series Parade around Boston after winning it all in October. There was...

Sox Fall to Rays on their Way to Their 4th Loss in a Row

The Red Sox came into Tropicana Field hoping to get a win and enact some revenge against David Price for his throwing ways in May.  Unfortunately the Sox bats weren’t able to get the job done and even though Lester left the mound in life for a win, the Sox bullpen fell apart and the Rays cruised to victory. The Red Sox got on the scoreboard first when Shane Victorino hit a solo...

Sox Lose Third Straight to Jays

The Red Sox were riding high with a 5 game win streak, but then they lost 3 straight to the Blue Jays and suddenly they are looking much more like sellers than buying at the trade deadline. The Red Sox had Rubby De La Rosa on the mound and while he has been spectacular at Fenway, he continued with his road struggles in yesterday’s getaway game. The Sox bats also had their struggles...

Sox Let the Game Slip Away

The Red Sox has numerous opportunities to win the game yesterday, but they just kept giving it back to the Jays until they took the lead for good and rode to victory.  Buchholz got an early lead, but then gave it right back in the early inning.  The Sox took the lead again in the later innings, but then Buchholz once again gave it right back to the Jays.  If the Sox are going...

Whatever Happened to Felix Doubront?

The answer to this question is easy. He is buried in the Sox bullpen. When the season began, the 26-year-old Venezuelan was listed as the number 4 starter behind Jon Lester, John Lackey and Jake Peavy. But after a poor start and the emergence of Brandon Workman and Rubby DeLa Rosa (and later return of Clay Buchholz) he was exiled to the pen in the notorious spot of “long reliever”...

Peavy is the Bad Luck Loser Once Again

The Red Sox had been riding a nice little win streak, but then Jake Peavy took the mound and it all went wrong.  Peavy has been looking for his 2nd win of the season since the end of April and bad luck loser would once not get that elusive 2nd win.  Peavy got no run support, but he also didn’t help him case crumbling in the later innings. The Jays were the first to crack the...

Sox Bats Explode in Series Opener with Jays!

The Red Sox have been on quite a roll lately and hoped to take that momentum into their series with the Blue Jays.  The Red Sox have games within the division for the next 4 series, so how they fair will be very telling to what this team has in them.  In last night’s game against the Jays, they sure put on a show and got people thinking that the Sox might have a shot to get back...

Sox Get Out Their Big Brooms On Sunday Against KC!

The Red Sox have been on quite a roll lately and they continued it today with a win and a successful sweep of the Kansas City Royals.  Jon Lester continued to show his dominance and why it should be priority number one for the Sox to not allow him to go to free agency.  If the Sox can continue playing ball like this they might just have a chance at making a run at it.
