Clay Buchholz In No Mood To Talk About Move To Red Sox’s Bullpen

On Friday, Boston Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz was moved to the bullpen after posting a 6.35 ERA through his first 10 starts of the 2016 season. Naturally, he does not sound particularly pleased about the demotion. Buchholz did not speak with the media Friday after Red Sox manager John Farrell announced the move, and he again declined comment before Saturday’s game against...

Stop asking David Ortiz to call off his retirement plans

COMMENTARY Yes. That’s right. You read the headline correctly. With this here column, I’m asking—no, I’m damn near begging—for a moratorium, effective immediately, on all discussions surrounding the prospect of David Ortiz reneging on his retirement plan and playing another season for the Red Sox. This ban will be active in all physical spaces and across […] The post...

Red Sox Decide: Clay Buchholz Is Headed To The Bullpen

The Red Sox did indeed make a decision on Clay Buchholz today—he will work out of the bullpen for the foreseeable future. The assignment will take affect immediately, as the tall righty will be in that capacity tonight at Rogers Centre (AKA SkyDome). Eduardo Rodriguez will likely take over what would have been Buchholz's next start in Baltimore on Tuesday.

Let’s Shine the Light on Xander Bogaerts

The number of young and talented shortstops in today’s game is amazing. It hearkens back to the days when Nomar Garciaparra, Alex Rodriguez, and Derek Jeter would duke it out over who was the best shortstop. It seems as though the only shortstops we hear about today are Carlos Correa, Francisco Lindor, and Trevor Story. We are constantly bombarded with highlight reels and segments...

Xander Bogaerts Is Putting the Pieces Together

For a while there, it seemed like the healthy version of Troy Tulowitzki was the best shortstop in baseball. That’s the guy the Blue Jays wanted to trade for, but Tulowitzki has entered a decline period, vacating the positional throne. And now things are kind of complicated. It doesn’t actually matter in any real way who you rank No. 1, among shortstops, but there’s plenty...

Wade Boggs doesn’t give a crap as he wore Yankees ring during ’86 Red Sox ceremony

Wade Boggs is pushing the boundaries what’s acceptable in the New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox rivalry. The Hall of Fame third baseman spent a decade of his illustrious career with the Red Sox before jumping ship to the rival Yankees in the mid 90’s, where he won his first and only World Series. Boggs is ultimately considered a Red Sox legend. When the team held a ceremony honoring...

Game 46 Recap: Red Sox 10, Rockies 3

Steven Wright puts up another solid start. The Red Sox lineup puts up another double-digit run total. Ho hum. Top Play (WPA) Blake Swihart had been going through a bit of a slump in his return to the majors, tallying just one single in his first three games. That changed on Wednesday night as he came through with the biggest hit of the game that really broke it open for Boston...

From Suckboats to Duckboats: The 2016 Red Sox

Alright, I’m probably getting ahead of myself. But every night this Red Sox team pulls something out of its collective ass that gets me thinking we’re another day closer to the parade. For an idea of how good we’ve got it, consider the fact that Xander Bogaerts, our young, soon-to-be-All Star shortstop is leading the league in hits and batting .350 and in the middle of a 17...

David Price Rides Red Sox Offense To Seventh Win, 8-3

David Ortiz continued his 'Magical Mystery Farewell Tour' with four more RBIs—going 2-4 and raising his average to .333. Jackie Bradley, Jr. extended his hitting streak to 28 games by roping the first pitch he...

Boston Red Sox Are The American League’s Best Team

Entering today, the Boston Red Sox sit ten-games over .500 at 27-17 on the season. There is no arguing that Boston has the best offense in the American League far and away this season as they maintain a team .296 batting average. Pair with that the +66 run differential, the way the lineup grinds out at bats and gets on base top-to-bottom and the overall talent of the position players...

Jackie Bradley, Jr. experiencing breakout campaign, but how?

In a season that certainly hasn’t lacked for intriguing storylines, one of the more remarkable situations thus far in 2016 has been the not-so-subtle emergence of Jackie Bradley, Jr. While the Boston Red Sox were expected to return to prominence after a noisy offseason, Bradley, Jr. was something of a wild card heading into the year, with a spot in the outfield no guarantee for...

Bill “Spaceman” Lee is running for governor of Vermont

Former MLB pitcher Bill “Spaceman” Lee had a strange career in the majors. He was an outspoken, bizarre individual that epitomized the 1970s. The 69-year old (obligatory “nice” reference) is back in the news with the announcement that he plans on running for governor of Vermont, and Lee’s platform may be best described as “unique”. The ex-Red Sox and Expos pitcher...

Rick Porcello Is Figuring Out His Fastballs

For one month early in the 2015 season, Rick Porcello, traditionally a sinkerballer whose fastball sits at 91, led with the four-seam. It was only the second month in Porcello’s career in which the sinker’s position as his primary pitch was usurped by the four-seam, and unlike the first instance of this happening, the magnitude of the shift was noticeable. It was the beginning...

Xander Bogaerts Is Also Putting Together A Solid Streak

(Boston Herald Photo)As MassLive.COM's Jen McCaffrey points out, there are two important active hitting streaks by Red Sox hitters. The obvious one is Jackie Bradley, Jr.'s 27-game streak—which is just 8 shy of breaking the all-time Red Sox record of 34 (held by Dom DiMaggio). But, somewhat under the radar, Xander Bogaerts has put together a 16-game streak (a career best for Bogie...

Assessing the Red Sox’s Pitching Staff

The story of the Red Sox’s season has quickly become about the offense, and with good reason. The Sox have scored the most runs in baseball and are near the top in most offensive categories. David Ortiz has yet to age, Xander Bogaerts is becoming a star, Jackie Bradley Jr. is impossibly hot and the lineup is as deep as it’s been in years. There’s plenty to feel good about over...

Red Sox Wrap: Rick Porcello Grinds Through ‘Blue-Collar’ Win; Bullpen Shines

BOSTON — The Red Sox’s offense has overcome subpar pitching performances on several occasions this season. But on a day in which Boston stranded 12 runners, the Sox needed at least a little help from its pitching staff. Rick Porcello didn’t have his best stuff Sunday, but he still managed to play his part. The Red Sox right-hander picked up his seventh win of the season, allowing...
