Red Sox Prospect Drops $45k to Customize Car

I don’t normally get excited about the cars athletes drive, but when they go out of their way to make their ride something Bruce Wayne would enjoy…color me intrigued. Boston Red Sox prospect Yoan Moncada just dropped $45,000 (of his $31 million deal!) to customize his Avorza BMW i8 to resemble something that would be seen cruising the streets of Gotham City. Something tells me...

The Red Sox Need To Use Tommy Layne, And Their Bullpen, Correctly

As the Boston Red Sox have remodeled their bullpen this offseason, the LOOGY ((L)eft-handed (O)ne (O)ut (G)u(Y)) role has not yet been filled. It’s a small role, but one every successful bullpen needs to fill if they hope to hold leads and limit baserunners late in games. The truth is though, the role should already be filled with someone who has been around since the start of...

Three Players Who MUST Succeed for the Boston Red Sox to Win the 2016 World Series

On the Red Sox’s Core, Youth, Farm System and Parentheses

As we sit on the cusp of spring training and beyond it, the 2016 season, the Red Sox face an interesting roster composition. Of the players projected to be on the team’s 25-man roster when the season begins, 10 are veteran players on multi-year deals with two or more seasons remaining in those contracts. Twelve are players in either the pre-arbitration process or entering their...

Making a Player Out of Rusney Castillo

Late in the 2014 season, the Red Sox signed a check worth $72.5 million and handed it to a stranger. The organization had barely missed out on prized Cuban first baseman Jose Abreu less than a year earlier, and they ensured they wouldn’t be topped in the international market again by giving Rusney Castillo the largest-ever deal to a Cuban defector. Castillo wasn’t a complete...

The Wainwrightization of Rick Porcello

I don’t know if you paid much attention to Rick Porcello last year, but I bet you have made a bad pancake. You know, one of those pancakes when you wait too long before you flip it. Or maybe you tried to make a pancake without preheating the cooking surface. The parallels work as well as any parallels do — you mess things up from the start, despite the best of intentions, but...

Will The Boston Red Sox Pitching Staff Hit Their Spot In 2016?

The Boston Red Sox made one of the biggest free-agent splashes this offseason by signing David Price to a record-setting, seven-year, $217 million contract. Yet, the question remains if adding Price and trading for Roenis Elias will be enough to solve the numerous problems the Sox’ pitching staff had in 2015. In the American League, Boston hurlers, collectively, ranked 14th in...

Red Sox’s Yoan Moncada Has New Car That’s Absolutely Sick (Videos)

Yoan Moncada’s wheels on the diamond are surpassed only by his wheels on the road.

It’s Panda or Bust at Third Base in 2016

The Red Sox thought they knew what they were getting in Pablo Sandoval. He was the Kung-Fu Panda. A plus player with a postseason pedigree. A fan favorite who could give you 15-20 home runs and a true average in the upper .200s. He was 28 years old and already had three World Series rings, a Series MVP and two All-Star selections. Five years and $95 million seemed a bit steep, but...

Dustin Pedroia Vital To Red Sox Success

Now that the calendar has officially turned to February, it’s time to start thinking about America’s Pastime. We’re just over two weeks out from pitchers and catchers reporting to Florida or Arizona to join their respective clubs, and with it comes the exhilaration of a new season. That is much of the same for the oft-hyped Boston Red Sox as they report to Fort Myers, Florida...

Boston Red Sox: Players 25 and Under to Watch For This Season

The Boston Red Sox had a dismal 2015 season, but there is a huge amount of optimism for the 2016 season. Much of that optimism has to do with the signings of David Price, Craig Kimbrel, and Chris Young. However, that is not the only reason things are looking up—the Red Sox have a plethora of young talent looking to burst onto the MLB scene in a big way in 2016. Let’s take a look...

Allen Craig Missing the Red Sox Players’ Salute to Don Orsillo was Very Allen Craig-ish

Look, you never want to kick a guy when he’s down. And Allen Craig probably has enough bitter memories of his days since being sent to Boston to last a lifetime. But witnessing his half-assed attempt to participate in the Red Sox players’ salute to Don Orsillo after the last game of the 2015 season is a thing of beauty. Never mind the fact that the players probably conveniently...

John Farrell: Pablo Sandoval is ‘better player’ on ‘lighter end’

It become increasingly clear as the 2015 season wore on. Pablo Sandoval’s weight was an issue.

Pablo Sandoval and Bouncing Back

After finishing in last place in their division in 2015, the Red Sox plan to bounce back in 2016. You know this because they’ve done things like sign David Price to a seven-year contract paying him a swimming pool filled with doubloons. Similarly they’ve dealt prospects to the Padres, which means “Wait, what?” in Spanish, for reliever Craig Kimbrel. They also dealt a starting...
