Three Crucial Trade Options for the Boston Red Sox

Rafael Devers, the current #3 Red Sox prospect and potential trade target, while playing for the Greenville Drive (A) in 2016. Since finishing the month of May at 32-20, the Boston Red Sox have begun to leak oil, going 9-14 in the month of June, and dropping to four games behind the first place Baltimore Orioles while holding on to a lead in the Wild Card race. Now as Dave Dombrowski...

Boston Red Sox Should Trade For Matt Garza

The Boston Red Sox are in trouble. They can’t just keep pedaling Clay Buchholz out to the mound every fifth day and cross their fingers. Boston dropped two of three in Texas after losing three out of four at home against Chicago. Their bench is weak due to injuries, especially in left field. The bullpen is a question mark at best and outside of their first three starters, the...

Time for Red Sox to send Carl Willis packing

Bill Foley (@Foles74) Contributing Writer In the waning moments of Sunday’s loss in Texas, NESN color man Jerry Remy said the Red Sox must do something to address their starting pitching. The RemDog said they can’t afford to wait until the trade deadline to make that move. Of course, that is obvious to every follower of the Boston nine. What is becoming more and more obvious...

How are the Red Sox Doing in the All-Star Voting?

Xander Bogaerts Learns It’s Tough Out There for a Winner

Poor Xander Bogaerts. The X Man was about the only living highlight from this sit-flat 4-6 homestand, and his tenth-inning single in today’s game helped the Sox retain a bit of pride as they headed out to Texas. Unfortunately, as Xander learned, success comes not without a price. As soon as he completed his jaunt down to first, Xander was pelted with a cup of flour, apparently...

Video: Red Sox Reporter Guerin Austin Gets Soaked In Powerade Shower, Appears Ready To Cry

The Red Sox keep dousing their on-field reporter, Guerin Austin, in Powerade.  Boston has soaked Austin in celebratory post-game showers multiple times over the last month and it happened again today. This might’ve been the worst one, too.  The Red Sox beat the White Sox, 8-7, on a walkoff win in the 10th inning. Following the win, Austin interviewed the man responsible for the...

Is Rick Porcello for Real?

The Red Sox have a clear objective heading into this summer’s trade season: improve their starting pitching. Sure, grabbing a left-handed outfielder to pair with Chris Young would be fantastic. And yes, solidifying the bullpen would go a long way towards locking a playoff spot down the stretch. Those aren’t priorities, though. This team needs another starter in the same way...

Hanley Ramirez Has a Message for his Critics

Hanley Ramirez’s bat has been missing like the lost ark for some time now. So when he belted a line drive home run off Jose Quintana in the sixth inning of tonight’s game — a game we eventually lost — it seemed like a good thing. But Hanley wasn’t done. Upon returning to the dugout, he hijacked the NESN cameras, offering a bit of performance art that I could only interpret...

David Ortiz not second-guessing retirement in midst of tremendous season

Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz is going into retirement with a bang, but it may be taking a toll on the aging slugger.

Steven Wright’s the Best In the Worst Red Sox Loss

Worst loss of the year? Hell, yeah. We can call this the worst loss of the year. Because any time your team has the bases loaded and nobody out, down by one slim run in the bottom of the ninth with the hometown crowd at your back, you have got to win that game. No exceptions, no excuses. Especially when scoring one measly run and winning the game would have given the much-deserved...
