Red Sox Notes: Mookie Betts Keeps Standing Out Amid Boston’s Auditions

Clay Buchholz brought the good stuff Sunday. Buchholz, whose season has been marred by inconsistency, tossed a complete-game, three-hit shutout in the Boston Red Sox’s 3-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. The right-hander needed just 98 pitches. Sunday’s victory was a nice bounce-back effort for Boston after Saturday’s disappointing loss, in which the Red Sox’s...

John Farrell: Dustin Pedroia’s Injury Hopefully ‘A Short-Term Thing’ (Video)

An Appeal to Mookie Betts: Please Don’t Make Us Fall in Love With You

I think we can all admit that this Red Sox season has, for the most part, been only slightly more enjoyable than being hooked up to a self groin-kicking machine. We look for bright spots where we can find them, whether it’s Daniel Nava becoming a wildly indispensable part of our line-up or Craig Breslow successfully teaching his niece to parallel park. One such bright spot ...

Red Sox need to add an anchor to the rotation

Chris O'Meara/Associated PressConor Frederick (@C_Frederick1016)Contributing WriterThe 2014 Red Sox have a lot of problems. I mean, A LOT of problems. But of all of these problems, perhaps the most obvious is pitching, specifically the starting rotation. The only remaining starter from the start of the year is Clay Buchholz. Every other starter has been traded elsewhere. And...

How Many Outfielders Can the Red Sox Use: A Second Look

Back in March, the Boston Red Sox were trying to decide which of their many outfielders were going to make the team. At the time, Grady Sizemore and Jackie Bradley Jr. joined 2013 holdovers Shane Victorino, Daniel Nava, Jonny Gomes, and Mike Carp to form a large cast that needed to find a way onto the 25-man roster. Before the season started, this looked like more depth than many...

Boston Red Sox: Quick hits

Even though they are a long way from contention, the Boston Red Sox continue to be an entertaining team to watch night in and night out. Due to a poor record, they’ve been given the chance to, how should I put this, experiment with a roster that provides fans with a mixed bag of talent and characters: you’ve got the veteran mainstays like Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz; the...

Clay Buchholz and the World’s Most Dramatic Umpire

Remember that guy named “Clay Buchholz” who was our single most effective pitcher out of the gate last season? That guy showed up again last night at Skydome, working 8 solid innings and giving up just 2 hits and no runs. Of course, once the ninth inning hit, we were hit with a sharp reminder that this is 2014, not 2013. After getting the first out, Clay let the next three batters...

Boston Red Sox land Rusney Castillo

In a move that required a record amount of money towards a free agent who’s yet to see a pitch in MLB, the Boston Red Sox continued to re-shape their offense moving forward by inking Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo to a seven-year, $72.5 million deal. Castillo, who was born in Ciego de Avila, is a 5-foot-9, 205 pound outfielder. He is described by scouts as a four-tool player...

Watch: Red Sox fan gets hit by foul ball after failed attempt to stretch out and catch it

Red Sox SP Joe Kelly had an excellent outing in Friday night's game against the Seattle Mariners, giving up only 1 hit (0 ER) in five innings. But Koji Uehara's five-run implosion in the ninth inning was the difference in another disappointing loss. And when the pitcher's duel was deadlocked at 0-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning—right before the Sox took the lead...
