Sox Owner Henry Supports Pitch Clock In MLB

Red Sox principal owner John Henry believes a 30-second pitch clock will migrate from the AA and AAA levels (where it will be in force this season) to the major leagues "in a couple of years"—and he likes it. Curiously, though, Henry says he is not concerned with the length of games, just the pace. While there is a subtle difference, they are clearly connected. Here's his puzzling...

Behold, A Rusney Castillo Projection

I don’t think it’s any secret we’ve been talking up the 2015 Red Sox for a while around here. It’s not so much that any of us are rooting for the Red Sox; it’s more that the numbers kept suggesting the Red Sox were in good shape, and we’re nothing if not loyal to the […]

Making the Case for a Strasburg/Betts Trade

The Boston Red Sox have too many outfielders. This isn’t news; it’s been clear for a while now that their outfield is overcrowded, and while shipping Yoenis Cespedes to Detroit for Rick Porcello alleviated the problem to a degree, they still don’t have enough at-bats to go around for the guys they’re going to bring […]

Minor league baseball team to hold #DeflateCancer night

Minor league baseball teams have a habit of doing things like this.  They’ll take a scandal or news story that occurs during the off season and create a themed night around it.  Listen, just because it is in the headlines in January…that doesn’t make it a viable promotion during the baseball season. Looking your way, Myrtle Beach Pelicans. The Myrtle Beach Pelicans, the...

Pablo Sandoval left money on table to sign with Red Sox

When Pablo Sandoval signed with the Boston Red Sox earlier this offseason, it came as a bit of a shock, considering Sandoval’s history with the Giants and the reports that San Francisco had made him a better offer than what he ended up getting from Boston. On a Tuesday appearance on MLB Network radio, Sandoval confirmed that he didn’t let the Giants make the final offer, and...

Boston Red Sox: can Chili Davis help rescue the offense?

After having one of their worst offensive seasons since 1994, the question many people are wondering is, will the Boston Red Sox be able to make a comeback this upcoming season? In the past season, Boston had 71 wins and 91 losses, while only being able to score 634 runs. They finished in last place in the AL East. Not only that, but batting averages were also decreasing, from both...

What should the Red Sox do at catcher?

The Boston Red Sox have been one of the most active teams in Major League Baseball this offseason. They have brought in more offense by signing free agents Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez and have been active in the reconstruction of their pitching rotation through acquisitions of Justin Masterson, Rick Porcello, and Wade Miley. Still, even after they dealt Yoenis Cespedes to the...

Player Profile #120: Xander Bogaerts | 3B/SS | BOS

When the Red Sox failed to sign Jon Lester this offseason and found themselves with a rotation devoid of an ace, I made sure to give myself at least a few weeks before I listened to Boston sports radio again. It wasn’t because I didn’t agree with the need for an ace but because I couldn’t stand to hear callers propose fake trades involving Xander Bogaerts, who, in my opinion...

Monday Links: Should Red Sox go all-in on Stephen Strasburg trade?

Ever since the Red Sox acquired Rick Porcello, Wade Miley, and Justin Masterson this offseason, general manager Ben Cherington has down played the team’s desire to acquire an ace. With high price tags on both the trade and free agent market’s, Boston pushed all of their chips to the center of the table on a handful of middle of the rotation arms. But that was before Max Scherzer...

Red Sox rumored to be "in" on Cliff Lee

How can Justin Masterson bounce back for the Red Sox?

While Red Sox fans are hoping that Ben Cherington adds another starter to the club’s roster ahead of Spring Training, the team has already done much of the heavy lifting in regards to rebuilding its starting rotation. Sure, Jon Lester is gone, and the idea of throwing loads of money at either Max Scherzer or James Shields is a tempting one. Yet Boston could trot out a starting...
