Sale Can Set MLB Strikeout Record At Fenway Tonight

(AP Photo)No one would argue with Chris Sale if he hired a lawyer and sued his teammates for non-support. Sporting the third-best ERA (2.19) in the American League—and having whiffed 95 batters in his first nine Red Sox starts—the lefty ace is just 4-2. To his credit, Sale is all about the team, "I'd rather be 8-0 with no punch-outs, honestly. Peripheral stats don't matter in...

A Tribute to Legendary Red Sox Utility Man, Chase D’Arnaud

The end was not as envisioned. There was no number retirement ceremony. No standing ovations. No ceremonial last start. Not even one final appearance as a pinch runner. Just another transaction on the waiver wire: 5/18/17 Boston Red Sox designate LF Chase d’Arnaud for assignment But, the end is a strange place to begin. One must go back to April to find the beginning. The Red Sox...

What's All This I Hear About The Firing Of John Farrell?

by Mark Lawrence, International EditorSydney, Australia. All this brouhaha about the apparently imminent dismissal of Red Sox manager John Farrell seems a bit silly to me. I’d seen very little to make me think that Dave Dombrowski (henceforth known as D-squared) was giving the matter serious thought, especially so early in the season. So, I did what any responsible, aspiring journalist...

Should Red Sox Fans Be Concerned with Andrew Benintendi’s Slump?

Andrew Benintendi ended his first season in the majors with an .835 OPS (118 OPS+), batting .295 over 34 games in 2016. He started 2017 just as well, putting up an .870 OPS in April, and then went into a horrendous slump in May that included a 26-at-bat hitless streak. With any rookie, especially one as young as the 22-year-old Benintendi, there is always a concern that major-league...

Bogaerts' all-around effort #ASGWorthy

It's hard for a guy with a .329 batting average to scoff too much at his performance. But Xander Bogaerts knows what the missing ingredient has been, and that's why his performance while fueling the Red Sox to an 11-6 victory over the Rangers on Tuesday represented his most satisfying night of the season.

Report: Red Sox players feel John Farrell does not back them enough in media

The Boston Red Sox have far too talented of a roster to be hovering around the .500 mark this far into the season, and that typically does not bode well for the manager. If the team can’t turn things around in the coming weeks, John Farrell could be on his way out.In a column that examines why Farrell is planted firmly on the hot seat, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports explained how...

The Red Sox’s Brutal Batting

Coming into 2017, we all knew the offense wasn’t going to be as prolific as it was the season before. It’s pretty hard to score as many runs when you lose one of baseball best’s hitters in David Ortiz. But it’s not as if the new guys aren’t pulling their weight either – Moreland wasn’t going to be Ortiz, but he’s been solid thus far, and now that he’s in a starting...

The pitching rotation of the Boston Red Sox is ready for David Price

Prior to the start of the season, the Boston Red Sox were becoming highly hyped around their young talent. But mainly, the high expectations came from the starters in their pitching rotation.

David Price coming back will provide spark for Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox, and their fans, have been going through a mixture of ups and downs to start the season. The offense isn’t putting up the numbers like it did last year, which shows how much this team can really miss David Ortiz in the heart of their lineup. They have switched the batting order around a few times, trying to trigger a spark to get everyone in the clubhouse going...

David Ortiz goes full conspiracy theorist, claims Yankees leaked his positive PED test

Time To Tighten Up A Disappointing Defense

It seems safe to say that through 38 games, the Red Sox have underwhelmed. They have only outscored their opponents by a total of 9 runs, and correspondingly have a middling 20–18 record. Of course, the plague that ripped through the clubhouse in the first two weeks, injuries to several key players, and playing one of the toughest schedules in the league are all contributors to...
