Jarrod Saltalamacchia May Be Headed To Camden Yards

Sox SaltyMultiple reports suggest that former Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia may be headed to Baltimore as the Orioles' new backstop. It's widely assumed that incumbent Matt Wieters will turn down the Birds' qualifying offer, leaving a big hole in the lineup for The Boys Of Dan Duquette. Salty is a free agent after compiling a .225 average in a year split between Miami and Arizona—although he did hit better as a D'Back. He hit .243 in three seasons with the Red Sox—clouting 55 HRs.

Charles Steinberg Joins Lucchino At The PawSox Helm

Lucchino (L); Steinberg (R) (USAToday Sports)Two of the last decade's most influential Red Sox minds are now in control of the AAA PawSox. Joining new PawSox Chairman Larry Luchhino will be his long-time colleague Dr. Charles Steinberg—in the role of club President. Lucchino and Steinberg have blazed baseball trails in Baltimore, San Diego and Boston and now join forces to give a new look (and maybe a new ballpark) to the Red Sox top minor league franchise. Steinberg (known affectionately by some as 'The Mad Dentist') is renowned for his PR expertise. He's been the brains behind the...

Red Sox Likely To Let Rich Hill Walk In Free Agency

Red Sox Likely To Let Rich Hill Walk In Free Agency

(USAToday Sports)The Red Sox are unlikely to sign Milton, Mass. native Rich Hill during their exclusive negotiating window (which ends tonight). Thus, the 35-year old lefty will become a free agent in his new re-incarnation as a starting pitcher. You might recall that Hill had an astounding four starts for the Red Sox in 2015—posting a 1.55 ERA with 36 strikeouts and just 5 walks. However, Boston is shooting for a younger, more "elite" starter to place at the top of a rotation that already seems filled out. So, Hill will be allowed to find another home. We wish him the best.

Is Dombrowski's Right-Handed OF Bat Jonny Gomes?

UPDATE: Ryan Raburn also available.Red Sox head of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski told WEEI's Hot Stove Show that he's looking for a veteran, right-handed OF bat to give an occasional  breather to Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Rusney Castillo. Hmm. Looks like former Carmine Hoser—and seemingly perennial World Champion—Jonny Gomes could fit the bill. We all know he hits left-handed pitching like he's in a Beer Softball League. And, he's available. In his two years in Boston he only hit to his career average (.242), but he was a monster in the clutch—and a valuable clubhouse...

ESPN 'Power Ranks' The Red Sox As #10 For '16 Season

The Bristol, Connecticut-based Worldwide Leader has come out with their 'way-too-early' Power Rankings for 2016—and the Red Sox come in pretty high at #10. The ESPN prognosticators suggest that the youthful base will be augmented by an ace starter that will likely propel them into the post-season. Sounds good to us! For perspective, The Bronx Embalmers are way down the list at #17, while Theo Epstein's Cubbies come in at #1. The World Series Champion Royals are ranked in the #2 spot—while the AL East Champion Blue Jays come in at #3.

John Henry Launches Yet Another Non-Red Sox Venture

Let's see. There's The Boston Globe, NESN, the Liverpool Football Club, Roush Fenway Racing—and, oh yeah, the Boston Red Sox. Well, we can now add another non-baseball activity for the Ichabod Crane-like 'principal owner' of The Carmine Hose: Stat. What is John Henry's new plaything, you ask? According to USAToday, Stat is "a high-powered digital news operation focused on health, medicine and life sciences." Great, something else to feed Henry's Charles Foster Kane obsession. Three last place finishes in the last four years—can we please focus on baseball?

Is Strasburg An 'Outside The Box' Red Sox Trade Target?

Is Strasburg An 'Outside The Box' Red Sox Trade Target?

(USAToday Sports)There's been a lot of talk recently about the Red Sox possibly getting their rotation ace via the trade route rather than free agency. It makes sense. Boston has a lot of prospect chips to deal and might be able to land a Sonny Gray or Carlos Carrasco or even a Matt Harvey in a swap. But, what about a guy the Washington Nationals are rumored to be shopping: one Stephen Strasburg? Sure, he's not the "Next Great Thing" he was a few years ago—but he's still only 27 and pretty damned good. He still throws gas, has a WAR of 3.4, strikes out a ton of batters and walks virtually...

Red Sox Open Against Huskies/Eagles On February 29th

The Red Sox open their 2016 Spring Training season on February 29th against the Northeastern University Huskies and the Boston College Eagles. Then (big surprise), The Carmine Hose face-off against the Twinkies seven times in the next 33 days. Boston plays The Evil Ones just twice during the Spring—on Saturday, March 5th at 1:05 PM at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. Then—fittingly on The Ides Of March—they face The Bronx Embalmers at 6:05 PM at jetBlue Park in Fort Myers. They also meet the National League Champion Mets in a split-squad contest on March 24th. The team winds up the...

Clay Buchholz Trade Chatter Is Starting To Build

Clay Buchholz Trade Chatter Is Starting To Build

As suspected, the Red Sox today picked up the $13 million 2016 option on Clay Buchholz. Interestingly, though, multiple sources are also reporting that the team may quickly turn around and trade the oft-injured righty. The word on the street is that there are multiple teams interested in taking a gamble on the health of Buchholz at the relatively reasonable price of  $13 million. The theory is that Boston could use the savings in their pursuit of a top-of-the-rotation starter. Stay tuned.

Red Sox exercise Buchholz’s option

The Red Sox expressed confidence that Clay Buchholz is healthy again, exercising the right-hander’s $13 million option for 2016. Buchholz’s 2015 season ended when he suffered a strained flexor in his right elbow pitching against the Yankees on July 10. Prior to the injury, Buchholz was on a superb run, going 5-2 with a 1.99 […]

Red Sox exercise 2016 option on Clay Buchholz

Clay Buchholz is coming back to Boston for 2016. The Red Sox have picked up Clay Buchholz' option for the 2016 season, ensuring he will remain with the team for at least one more year. Where once this would have seemed an absolute given, Buchholz' up-and-down performance and injury history, combined with the arrival of an uncertain element in Dave Dombrowski, made it at least a bit of a question whether the Sox would pick up Buchholz' $13 million team option. Now, though, not 48 hours removed from the end of the World Series, the Sox have locked in their sometimes-ace. And, by all accounts,...
