Red Sox clinch postseason berth while Brett Anderson tears a hat

Red Sox clinch postseason berth while Brett Anderson tears a hat

Your morning update for everything Blue Jays. For the second consecutive season, the Boston Red Sox have clinched a postseason berth. With the Cleveland Indians beating the Los Angeles Angels 6-5 Wednesday night, the Red Sox were guaranteed at least a wildcard spot after they defeated the Baltimore Orioles 9-0. The Red Sox, currently three games up on the New York Yankees, have a magic number of eight to clinch the AL East. 2016 and 2017 is the first time Boston has reached the postseason in back-to-back seasons since 2008-2009, and the Red Sox have never won the AL East in consecutive...

Crappy defense and no hitting buys the Jays another loss

Crappy defense and no hitting buys the Jays another loss

Red Sox 3 Blue Jays 0 So the good news first: Brett Anderson was excellent. Through 5.2 innings, he allowed just 3 base runners, 2 singles and a double. He almost gave up a home run in the first inning, Eduardo Nunez hit one off the center field wall, about a foot or so short of a home run, going for a double instead, but the Red Sox couldn’t move him up from second. He didn’t issue a walk, and had with 3 strikeouts. With 2 out in the 6, he ran into a streak of bad luck/defense: Rajai Davis singled, but we weren’t worried. Davis took off to steal, but Brett still had the ball. He...

Jays call up Brett Anderson, option Leonel Campos

Jays call up Brett Anderson, option Leonel Campos

We knew this was coming today. Brett Anderson has been officially called up by the Jays and Leonel Campos gets optioned, after being called up yesterday. Anderson was a pretty good pitcher, until injuries derailed his career. In 133 games, 121 starts, he has a 3.99 ERA. In 707.2 innings, he’s allowed 755 hits, 195 walks, with 523 strikeouts. He made two starts in Buffalo, and had a 0.93 ERA. In 9.2 innings, he allowed 4 hits, 2 walks and had 3 strikeouts. We really could use someone that can pitch us deep into a game, but I don’t think anyone like that is going to pop up suddenly....
