Red Sox Prospect Henry Owens Pitches Scoreless Inning In Futures Game

Left-hander Henry Owens, one of the top Boston Red Sox prospects, started for the U.S. team in the 2014 All-Star Futures Game and put forth a solid performance. Owens tossed a scoreless inning at Target Field in Minneapolis, allowing one hit and striking out one on 19 pitches. While the 21-year-old’s control wasn’t 100 percent, he still showed off three nice pitches: a 90...

Buchholz & Bats Send Sox Off to the All Star Break With A Sweet Win!

The Red Sox have had a disappointing first half of their season, but they were able to end it on a bright note with a big time win over the Astros.  Clay Buchholz had the best outing yet in 2014 and he got some major support from the Sox offense.  Let’s hope that the Sox build upon this win after the break and into the 2nd half of the season. The Red Sox got on the board and...

Clay Buchholz’s Stellar Showing Comes At Crucial Juncture For Red Sox

Clay Buchholz will not be making the trip to Minnesota this week for Major League Baseball’s All-Star festivities. His brutal showing in April and May squashed any hopes of that months ago. The performance the Boston Red Sox right-hander put on Sunday in Houston, however, certainly was All-Star worthy. Buchholz was masterful on the mound against the Astros, tossing a complete...

John Farrell Disappointed By Boston’s Record, Surprised By Brock Holt (Video)

This year’s Boston Red Sox aren’t very different from last season’s World Series champions, except for one major thing: their record. The Red Sox are 43-52 after Sunday’s win over the Houston Astros, which is good for last place in the American League East. At the start of last year’s All-Star break, they were sitting pretty at the top at 59-38. That’s precisely why manager...

Holt, Vasquez Power Red Sox to 11-0 Win Over Astros

Well the question continues to swirl as to will the Red Sox be buyers or sellers. Is it tough to sell out a team that is coming off a World Series and is trying so hard to get their act back together.

John Farrell: Red Sox Looking At Today, Not Second Half Of Season (Video)

To say the Boston Red Sox have been less successful in 2014 than they were in 2013 is an understatement. But that doesn’t mean necessarily mean they have to majorly change their strategy after the All-Star break. “I don’t think the first half was any more trying than a year ago,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said. “There’s a different set of circumstances and challenges...

David Ross On Christian Vazquez: ‘I’m Excited To Have Him Here’ (Video)

Christian Vazquez likely has a lot on his plate these days since getting the call to the Boston Red Sox from Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday. Luckily for Vazquez, he has the benefit of a veteran presence at his position. 37-year-old catcher David Ross has seen a lot over his 13 major league seasons, so he’s in a great position to act as a mentor to the 23-year-old Vazquez. Ross...

Red Sox Trade Rumors

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports With each passing day it seems there is a new Red Sox pitcher that is linked to a variety of MLB teams. Over the past few days that pitcher has been Jake Peavy. The most likely destination for the right-hander would be the St. Louis Cardinals. In exchange for Peavy, St. Louis would likely move Allen Craig or even 2013 All-Star Matt Adams. With the offensive...

David Ortiz Not Impressed By Houston Astros Mascot’s Antics (Video)

Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is a fun-loving guy off the field, but on the field, he’s all business. This was extremely apparent Saturday during Boston’s game against the Houston Astros. Orbit, the Astros’ mascot, tried to rile up Big Papi while he was in the on-deck circle, but Ortiz wasn’t having it. As Orbit waved and shook his belly at Ortiz, the big...

Red Sox Notes: Jake Peavy’s Stellar Outing Yields Disappointing Loss

Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Jake Peavy can’t catch a break. Peavy’s name has been the subject of some pretty serious trade rumors, to the point that many were wondering if he’d even be traveling to Houston with the team for their series against the Astros. Then, when he did make it to Houston and got the start Saturday, he delivered an unbelievable outing, only to earn...

WATCH: Red Sox combine for sweet putout

If there is one play that first baseman and pitchers make look easy, it’s the execution of the grounder to first, toss to a running pitcher to almost always get the runner by a step.  Practiced all spring and usually uneventful. Boston Red Sox first baseman Mike Carp, after an amazing stop, made it a bit more complicated.  In this case it was a stop of a sure single to his left...

It’s hard to find a better Boston Red Sox pitcher than Jon Lester these days. Lester takes home Amica Pitcher of the Week honors for the second straight week after turning in a dominant performance against the Chicago White Sox on Thursday. While Lester wasn’t rewarded with a win, the lefthanded ace did everything he could to keep his team in the game. After giving up an RBI...

Sox Open Up Series with Astros With a Nice Win!

The Red Sox headed to Texas for the final series before the All Star Break and had just come off two walk off victories.  The Sox had John Lackey on the mound against former O’s pitcher Scott Feldman.  The Sox have always had success against Feldman and the same would be true last night.  Lackey still seems a little fatigued at the midway point, but he pitched well enough to...

Jake Peavy Starts for the Red Sox… For The Last Time?

He’s only been around for a year but I’ll be damned if Jake Peavy hasn’t grown on me in that time. Yes, his playoff starts were heart attack moments and he hasn’t won a game for us since April. But the guy wears his heart on his sleeve and serves up the kind of quirky behavior — buying duck boats and indoctrinating a cigar store Indian as team mascot — that I’ve always...

Red Sox Notes: Brock Holt Becoming True Iron Man For Boston In 2014

The Boston Red Sox look determined to finish the first half on a positive note. The Red Sox, owners of two straight walk-off wins to conclude their recent homestand, rolled over the Houston Astros 8-3 in Friday’s series opener at Minute Maid Park. The Sox now hold a three-game winning streak. Perhaps the sudden turnaround is a sign of things to come, or perhaps it’s a nice little...

Christian Vazquez’s Emphatic Arrival Keeps Red Sox’s Momentum Rolling

The Boston Red Sox are 3-0 in the Christian Vazquez era. OK, maybe the 23-year-old catcher isn’t directly responsible for the Red Sox’s three-game winning streak, especially since he went hitless Wednesday and didn’t play Thursday. But Vazquez, who was called up when A.J. Pierzynski was designated assignment, sure had his fingerprints all over Friday’s 8-3 win over the Houston...

Drew Eats Banana, Vazquez Goes Nuts, Red Sox Win Again

Standing rule in Mantown is that you just don’t eat bananas in public. So when Stephen Drew was seen openly munching on one of Chiquita’s finest in the Red Sox dugout, I took it as a bad omen. Turns out, I was wrong. The Sox pounded out 12 hits, scored 8 runs, and got a pretty solid six from John “ten game winner” Lackey to vanquish the Astros, 8-3. We even saw what could...

John Lackey Records Out With Nifty Glove Flip In Red Sox’s Win (Video)

John Lackey became the Red Sox’s first 10-game winner Friday. He also displayed some nifty glove work. Houston Astros infielder Marwin Gonzalez attempted to drop down a bunt in the third inning with the Red Sox leading 2-0. Lackey wasn’t prepared to relinquish a single, however, so he stormed off the mound and took matters into his own hands. Lackey scooped the ball with his...
