Red Sox Waste Another Effective Steven Wright Start

(Getty Images)Steven Wright pitched well again—aside from four costly walks—but the Red Sox offense could not help him out in a 4-1 loss to the White Sox. Wright went six innings, giving up just three hits and two earned runs. The knuckle-baller struck out six and walked four. Boston's offense came down to an opposite-field solo HR by Hanley Ramirez.

Chiwetel Ejiofor? Good choice, but, nope. Perhaps an ultra-bulked up Taye Diggs? Also…nope. You get the man himself. According to the Hollywood Reporter,...

Don’t Worry About David Price

Let’s start with a little game of good news, bad news.

Red Sox Lack Home Runs, But Not Power

The Red Sox have a good offense. That much is evident. You can simply look at the 126 runs they’ve scored through 24 games (a 5.25 run per game clip) to see the production. Or you can look at the pair of beatdowns they put on the lowly Braves in the middle two games of their four-game series in Atlanta in which they scored 24 times in the four games, and their 8-0 drubbing of the...
