Daily Red Sox Links: Andrew Benintendi, Brandon Workman, Dave Dombrowski

In today’s links, Andrew Benintendi finds success, Brandon Workman is effective and we look forward to trade season. Andrew Benintendi might just have his swagger back. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe) It’s been and up and down year for Red Sox relievers and Brandon Workman has been more on the up side. (Rich Thompson; Boston Herald) At Over the Monster, the Red Sox are all we care about, but that’s not how everyone is wired, especially when Lord Stanley’s Cup visits. (Rob Bradford; WEEI) But its all about baseball season now. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic) ($$) Dave Dombrowski has...

Thoughts on a 4-3 Rangers win

Thoughts on a 4-3 Rangers win

Rangers 4, Red Sox 3 Rangers 4, Red Sox 3 What an unexpectedly delightful win. Mike Minor was on the mound today, five days after an adventurous 5.2 IP, 0 runs outing where he had a season-high 117 pitches, and after the first two batters he faced the Rangers were down 2-0, courtesy of a Mookie Betts walk and an Andrew Benintendi home run. With Chris Sale going for Boston, that 2-0 lead in the first looked steep, and there was kind of a sense that, well, Minor doesn’t have his best stuff, Sale is pitching, the Rangers don’t win the first game of the series anyway, so let’s just...

Red Sox 3, Rangers 4: A very 2019 kind of game

Red Sox 3, Rangers 4: A very 2019 kind of game

Bad situational offense and poor pitching from the bullpen. The Red Sox were coming off a really tough weekend against the Rays and could desperately have used a big start to this four-game set against the Rangers that kicked off Monday. Early on, things were golden. The offense scored two runs in the first thanks to an Andrew Benintendi home run and Chris Sale was sailing. The latter continued that, going seven strong innings. The offense, however, fell asleep after the first two batters and failed to score again the rest of the night. That put it all on Matt Barnes in the ninth with a...

Red Sox 1 - Rays 6 : A Tale of Two Teams

Red Sox 1 - Rays 6 : A Tale of Two Teams

Please have mercy on me, the Sox certainly didn’t. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. OK, it was mostly the worst of times. This much was evident when I looked at the lineup. No Andrew Benintendi, no J.D. Martinez (again), no Rafael Devers. Instead of having three of the five best hitters on the roster, we were given the treat of Christian Vazquez, second hitter in the lineup and the team’s designated hitter. Yes, try not to think of what happens if Sandy Leon got injured, that would just be awful, and would make you feel even worse about the lineup. ...

Red Sox vs. Rays lineup: Cy vs. Sigh

Extremely Nice day for baseball. The Red Sox (34-31) wrap up a four-game series against the Rays (38-23) this afternoon at Fenway Park at 1:05, and Marco Hernández is back, baby, starting at second base because why not? Christian Vázquez is batting second and DHing, while Andrew Benintendi, J.D. Martinez and Rafael Devers all have the day off to start.

Red Sox vs. Rays Game 1 lineup: Let’s (watch them) play two!

Red Sox vs. Rays Game 1 lineup: Let’s (watch them) play two!

It’s the first game of a double-dip this afternoon at the Fens. The Red Sox (33-30) have two games planned against the demon Rays (38-23) this afternoon, the first of which, at 1:05 p.m., has an extremely “early game of a doubleheader” lineup from almost top to bottom. I say “almost” from the top because Mookie Betts is playing and leading off, but Andrew Benintendi and J.D. Martinez are sitting to start the day, because it’s going to be very long and exhausting. Sam Travis starts in left, Christian Vázquez is at DH and Josh A. Smith is BACK for a spot start. They don’t tend...

Getting to know Cameron Cannon

Getting to know Cameron Cannon

A little more information on the first Red Sox selection of the 2019 draft The Red Sox made their first selection of the 2019 draft all the way down at pick number 43, and they selected a college bat with their first pick for the first time since they took Andrew Benintendi in 2015. This one is a little different, of course, with Benintendi being a top ten pick and 2019 selection Cameron Cannon being taken at the start of the second round. Cannon doesn’t quite fit the mold we saw early in the draft last year from the Red Sox when they took a bunch of power hitters with questionable hit...
