Orioles 4, Red Sox 2: This blueprint isn’t really working out

David Ortiz emerged Saturday night at a fundraiser for the Charmed Foundation at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. He talked about Chis Sale, and he talked about his former team. “Unbelievable man, unbelievable,” Ortiz said when asked about Sale. “Unbelievable. But I know it was coming. I knew it was coming. That’s why I got so […]

John Farrell acknowledges Hanley Ramirez prefers DH over 1B

Hanley Ramirez certainly has embraced his role as a DH for the Boston Red Sox. After playing 133 games at first base for Boston last season, Ramirez has taken the role of DH from David Ortiz, and he is enjoying it. It’s to the point that he has yet to play in the field this...Read More

Hanley Ramirez on Red Sox role: I can’t be like David Ortiz

Hanley Ramirez sits in David Ortiz’s old locker, fills his old position of designated hitter, and bats in his old cleanup spot. On Thursday, he even made like his retired teammate by clubbing the game-tying double in the eighth inning to spearhead a 4-3 comeback victory over the Pirates. But Ramirez wants to make one […]

Daily Red Sox Links: Hanley Ramirez, Christian Vazquez, David Price

Today’s links look at the middle of the order, Christian Vazquez’ arm strength, and Shaun Anderson’s performance in Greenville. The Red Sox don’t have David Ortiz, but the middle of the order is looking good with Hanley Ramirez and Mitch Moreland. (Bill Ballou; Providence Journal) It wasn’t all that long ago that Christian Vazquez underwent Tommy John surgery. Now, he’s back to full strength and he knows when it happened. (John Tomase; WEEI) He’s certainly been showing off that arm early on this season. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe) Andrew Benintendi and Mookie Betts have a...

Mitch Moreland sets Boston Red Sox consecutive doubles record

Raise your hand if you had Mitch Moreland breaking a Boston Red Sox record within his first 10 games. Anyone with their hand up shouldn’t be trusted. The first baseman came into Thursday’s game with six consecutive contests with at least one double. That was tied for the club record with David Ortiz, Jason Varitek, and Bill […] The post Mitch Moreland sets Boston Red Sox consecutive doubles record appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Orioles-Red Sox series preview: A quick AL East rivalry clash

Orioles-Red Sox series preview: A quick AL East rivalry clash

The Orioles will face the Red Sox this week, but the good news is that the lineup won’t have to face Boston’s top three arms. But there will be knuckleballs! It has already been one heck of a season for the Orioles, as two AL East battles have wrapped up with series wins. Now at 4-1, Buck Showalter’s guys hit the road for the first time in 2017, traveling to Fenway Park to take the Boston Red Sox. There’s no David Ortiz to wreak havoc on a regular basis, but that isn’t much of an advantage for anyone facing Boston this season. This year, the roster is plenty stacked with an...
