Red Sox Call Up Alex Wilson and Option Daniel Nava

After last night’s game John Farrell said that Shane Victorino might not be activated today because of how much the bullpen has been taxed due to the short starts of both Buchholz and Lester.  Farrell hinted that an arm may get called up from Pawtucket instead.  So in not surprising news, the Sox announced today that they called up pitcher Alex Wilson and optioned Daniel Nava...

Ellsbury Returns and Makes Sox Pay in Loss to Yanks

The Red Sox faced off against the Yankees and Jacoby Ellsbury returned to Fenway for the first time since he left the Sox to put on pinstripes.  Lester followed Buchholz’s lead and struggled early and often and put the Sox in an early hole.  The Sox bats couldn’t get much going against Tanaka and dropped the first game of the series.

Sox Rallied But Fell Short On Patriots Day

The Sox played the earliest game of the season yesterday with the 11am Patriots Day start.  The Sox were holding a 2-1 lead in the series and had Clay Buchholz up against Wei-Yin Chen for the O’s.  To say that Buchholz struggled would be a gross understatement.  Buch didn’t make it out of the 3rd inning and left the Sox in a huge hole. The bats tried to rally and make up for...

Red Sox Win in a Bizarre Awesome Walk Off!

The Red Sox came into this game hoping to take the lead in the series against the Orioles.  The Sox had Jake Peavy on the mound vs. Ubaldo Jimenez for the O’s.  Peavy struggled out of the gate allowing 3 runs to score in the first.  The Sox would end up coming back to win the game in walk off fashion in the 9th inning much thanks to the poor defense from the O’s. Peavy gave...

Sox Battle and Come Up with the Victory Against The O’s

The Sox took the mound on Saturday after with Felix Doubront against the O’s Bud Norris.  Doubront gave up a run early, but then settled down real well and pitched what was probably his best outing to date this season.  Doubront didn’t get the win, but he sure kept his team in the game to have the bats take the lead in the later innings. Doubront gave up his first run of the...

Sox 99 – Gordon Goes Down

Sometimes an injury to an important member of a team can start a tailspin. That seemed to happen with the 99 Sox. Entering an April series at Fenway against the undermanned but troublesome Tampa Bay, the Sox were 6-2 and apparently on their way. But in the second game of the series, storm clouds appeared over the park. In the opening contest on the 17th, 18,809 (this was long before...

Bridge Year?

I guess we should have expected this. The baseball gods that were smiling on the Red Sox throughout the 2013 season are suddenly sporting frowns. The team’s 5-9 record through Tuesday ties Houston for the worst in the AL. Instead of walkoff wins, we are getting walkoff losses. Clutch hits have become discouraging popups that leave men in scoring position. The “power by committee”...

Sox Falls to O’s in Series Opener

The Red Sox came home after winning a series against the White Sox in hopes of finding some success at the friendly confines of Fenway.  The Sox had John Lackey on the mound against Chris Tillman of the O’s.  The Red Sox always seem to have issues with the Orioles and it would hold true tonight.  Lackey struggled and the offense continued to have issues getting numbers on the...

Red Sox Take Series in Chicago Behind Lester’s Strong Start

The Red Sox have definitely been scuffling at the start this season and needed the win last night in order to head back to Fenway with some positive energy.  The Red Sox had Jon Lester on the mound vs. Chris Sale for the White Sox.  Both pitchers were dealing and had no hitters going into the 6th inning.  Lester was able to out duel Sale by a smidge and then the return of our...

Red Beats White, It Just Took 14 Innings

The Red Sox lost the first game of the series by way of an error in the 9th, so they hoped to even the score last night in Chicago.  The Red Sox had Clay Buchholz on the mound vs. John Danks for the White Sox.  In the end, neither starter would have much to say in how this game went as it was decided in the 14th inning with a position player on the mound for the White Sox.  The...

Red Sox Lose in the 9th to White Sox

Last night the White Sox had a nice ceremony celebrating Boston and the anniversary of the Marathon before the game while wearing Boston Strong t-shirts.  The two teams then got on to playing the game in the frigid cold.  It was snowing earlier in the game and during the early innings some wisps of snow could be seen in the air.   The Red Sox had former White Sox Jake Peavy on...

Sox 99 – Surprising Start

Quieting some of their naysayers, the Sox broke from the gate with 5 straight wins for the first time since 1946. After sweeping the Royals in KC, they took a pair in Tampa Bay before finally dropping one. Number 4 starter Mark Portugal continued the mound domination, going 6 1/3 innings of shutout ball in a 4-1 win. Brian Daubach doubled in his first Sox at bat, then tripled in...

Power Shortage

After 9 games, it is obvious the Red Sox have a shortage of power. They are 8th in the AL in slugging percentage, 9th in runs scored, 8th in doubles (even with the benefit of the Wall), and have yet to hit a triple. They have left many runners in scoring position (17 for 79) and Tuesday hit into five double plays in a loss to Texas. There are few true power men on the roster....

Sox 99 – KC Sweep

As the Townies went to Kaufmann Stadium to open the 99 season, question marks filled the air. In a piece entitled “Time at last for the Sox to show their stuff”, Dan Shaughnessy continued his criticism of the front office while admitting that a few wins would blunt the negative predictions. “In the last three years, ” he wrote, “Mike Greenwell, Jose Canseco, Roger Clemens...

Pedroia Headed Back to Boston to Get Wrist Evaluated

Last year Dustin Pedroia played through a thumb injury that would have put most players on the sidelines, so when he was scratched from Sunday’s lineup and sent back to Boston to meet with the team doctors, it is of course concerning.  It was reported that Pedroia has been suffering with wrist soreness since he injured it trying to complete a double play in the home opener against...

Sox Fall to Yanks and Lose Series in the Bronx

The Red Sox needed to win the game last night in order to at least split the series.  The Sox had lefty Felix Doubront on the mound who had one of his worst starts his last time out vs. Ivan Nova of the Yankees.  Doubront pitched better than he did the last time out, but still looked pretty hittable early on.  The biggest news of the game was either Pedey being out of the lineup...
