At 8-5, the Boston Red Sox sit atop the American League after recording a series split with the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park. The rotation, for the most part, has turned out exactly how people predicted.

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 Sign Pedro's Cousin RHP Denny Bautista

In a bizarre move, the Red Sox signed 32-year old right-handed reliever Denny Bautista—a cousin of team legend Pedro Martinez—to a minor league contract. We know the bullpen is a huge question mark this year, but Denny Bautista? He last pitched in the bigs five years ago with the Giants. That year, he worked 33.2 innings and clocked an ERA of 3.74.

Hanley Ramirez broke the Green Monster

Hanley Ramirez had an eventful day on Friday. During batting practice before the Red Sox-Orioles game at Fenway, he hit a line drive so hard that it cracked a pad on the center field section of the Green Monster. He also wore the wrong red jersey before the game started. The oddities didn’t exactly translate to a great performance on the field, however – Ramirez went 0/3 with...

Red Sox Walk Off in the 9th!

Steven Wright Falters, But PawSox Still Win

PAWTUCKET, R.I. – The last time Steven Wright was in action, he was bailing out a beleaguered Boston Red Sox bullpen – in last Friday’s 19-inning marathon at Yankee Stadium. Wright tossed five innings of two-run ball in a game Boston eventually won 6-5. Suffice to say the difference between the Wright who tamed the hitting-impaired Yankees and the Wright who pitched Thursday...

Bogie In, Panda & Papi Out Of Today's Lineup

Xander Bogaerts will be in the lineup today for the Red Sox, so his knee issue was likely minor. Pablo Sandoval, on the other hand, is not playing today—raising questions about his foot injury. It's not clear why David Ortiz is sitting—although it might just be a routine day off. Mike Napoli will DH today and Allen Craig will play at first. Brock "Mr. Swiss Army Knife" Holt will...

Mookie Betts has already become must-see television

Just over a week into the season, we’ve already seen plenty of intriguing storylines and overbearing narratives throughout Major League Baseball. However, there’s been a notable absence of the whole “baseball is dying” talk. Perhaps it’s because it’s still early in the season. Or that the pace of play changes are doing their job. Or that there are simply too many other...
