RED SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Joe Kelly: stopgap or solution?

Ian VesceraContributing writerWhen Joe Kelly threw 7 innings of 2 run, 2 hit ball last night, he showed just how dominant he can be on any given night. Although his Red Sox ERA is higher than he would like at 4.00, he has definitely passed his audition to be a part of the rotation next year.At only age 26, Joe Kelly should be entering the prime of his career. He will have a lot of...

The Sox Need Kenta Maeda

Mike DavisContributing WriterThe Boston Red Sox need to make every effort to sign Japanese pitcher Kenta Maeda.  In recent years, there have been many successful pitchers that have come from Japan, like Yu Darvish.  The Sox really need a number one or two starter.  Their rotation has been horrible since the Jon Lester trade, but if we can get Maeda this would help solve one of...

Red Sox Notes: Mookie Betts Does Bobby Doerr Impression In Boston’s Win

It’s easy to forget that Kelly isn’t much older than Boston’s other young pitchers — he turned...

Cespedes and the Value of Protection

Yoenis Cespedes #52 of the Boston Red Sox doubles in a run in the third inning against the Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park on September 6, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Red Sox 2015 roster projection

Well I’m just going to come out and say it, this season sucked. But their's hope for next year, a lot of it. One key thing will be getting healthy. Players like Pedroia, Papi, Napoli, Craig, etc. were all players with nagging injuries that caused them to perform worse than expected. Another reason for hope is free agency. The Sox have a lot of money to spend and they need to...
