Pedey And Xander Lead Red Sox Past KC Royals, 8-3

(AP Photo)On the way to the bathroom, Dustin Pedroia heard on TV that he was on verge of making MLB history. He had 11 straight hits over the last three games and could—in his next at-bat—tie the all-time record (held by three others, including former Red Sox Walt Dropo and Mike 'Pinky' Higgins). Unfortunately, The Laser Show swiped at the first pitch and grounded into a double...

Man, Myth, Legend, Sandy Leon?

Photo Credit: Christopher EvansContributing Writer Bryan Mauro (@threecolorbeard)When the Red Sox traded for Sandy Leon at the beginning of the 2015 season, no one imagined what was about to happen. The Red Sox made the trade because Sandy is a fantastic defensive catcher, and knows how to handle a pitching staff. However, he is not going to light the world on fire at the plate...

Boston Red Sox: August Recap

We still have a few more days left in the month of August, but the playoff race is still heating up. And with the Boston Red Sox right in the middle of the mix, it’s important for them to not take their foot off the pedal. The offense continued to do its job, and that put the team in prime position in the postseason hunt. At one point, they held the lead in the AL East, but that...

You Betts Believe It

Mookie Betts was 5-for-5 and drove in two runs Friday night. It was the first five-hit game of his career and the number of pets in New England being named Mookie is climbing quicker than his batting average. Let me gush about Betts for a minute, even though it might be tough because I know Xander is reading. (Do not worry, you are still my number 1, Awesome-X.) Mookie is slashing ...

Wrong 'Wright' Off The Bat, Red Sox Lose To KC, 6-3

(AP Photo)Maybe it was the heat, or the humidity that did Steven Wright in last night in the first inning—but more likely it was just the hot Kansas City bats. In any event, the game was pretty much over before most fans squeezed their 21st-century posteriors into Fenway's early 20th-century seats. Down 5-0 after one, Boston's offense again squandered multiple opportunities to...

The Red Sox have found a playoff-caliber rotation

Welcome to Friday, it’s party night! We’re going to start by playing Spin The Bottle. This is a bit different than the version of the game you probably know.

Andrew Benintendi on DL but it's too early to tell if injury is season-ending

There’s no way to sugar coat it: The Boston Red Sox received some pretty bad news Thursday. Rookie left fielder Andrew Benintendi exited Wednesday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays with an ugly left knee sprain, and after tests the next morning, the Red Sox already sent him to the 15-day disabled list. “He did have an MRI (Thursday) morning and that exam and images are still...

To Win it All, What are the Red Sox Missing?

As of Thursday morning, the Red Sox sit atop the American League East with the Toronto Blue Jays. As it stands, the Sox would have a chance at the World Series. Yet, it’s hard to predict the Red Sox chances of advancing to game 163. Look at the 2011 collapse. The beer and chicken scandal; a last place finish; a manager fired; a major disappointment. That same kind of disappointment...

Andrew Benintendi’s Incredible Catch To Rob Homer Might Be The Play Of The Year

Turns out the kid can do more than just hit. Boston Red Sox rookie Andrew Benintendi has been swinging a hot bat since he was recalled from Double-A Portland in late July. But his prowess at the plate pales in comparison to the play he made in left field Monday night against the Tampa Bay Rays. With a runner on first base in the eighth inning, Rays second baseman Logan Forsythe hit...

Some Perspective on Travis Shaw’s Struggles

One of the most exciting parts of the 2016 season has been watching the Red Sox’s young core blossom before our very eyes. Mookie Betts has mashed his way into American League MVP consideration, Xander Bogaerts might be the AL’s best-hitting shortstop and Jackie Bradley Jr. has had a career-changing season that’s seen him ride a 29-game hitting streak and go from Triple-A castoff...

Boston Red Sox: Rick Porcello’s Cy Young case

The Boston Red Sox have the Major League’s best offense with superstars like Mookie Betts, David Ortiz, and Xander Bogaerts and many other good players in their lineup they average over 5.5 runs per game. In order for the Boston Red Sox to go far into the postseason they need good pitching. Their starting pitching has been pretty good led by Rick Porcello, but their bullpen is...

Pablo Sandoval Needs To Return To Form With David Ortiz Retiring, John Henry Says

It sounds as though the Boston Red Sox haven’t given up on Pablo Sandoval just yet. The third baseman had a rough 2015 campaign after signing a five-year, $95 million contract with the Red Sox and appeared in just three games in 2016 after losing his starting job to Travis Shaw and undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery in May. But Red Sox owner John Henry is hoping to see more...
