Red Sox at Astros lineup: Houston vs. Astro’s dad

The Red Sox look to put a ghoulish Friday game behind them tonight in Houston. The Red Sox (27-24), fresh off a game against the Astros (34-18) that they could have won but for some “Little League” defense, as this site’s editor called it, look to even the score down in Houston tonight at 7:15 p.m (FOX). It’s David Price against Brad Peacock, with no J.D. Martinez to speak of, again, with Christian Vázquez taking over the DH spot in the starting lineup with the big slugger still ailing. On Houston’s side, George Springer, also dogged by injuries, gets the day off, pushing...

Some historical perspective on the Victoria Day firework display by the Red Sox

When I saw that the pitching matchup was Edwin Jackson against David Price, I did not have expectations for the Blue Jays/Red Sox game on Victoria Day. But even then, the magnitude of the beat down was pretty stunning. The last one that bad that I recall being at was an 18-4 drubbing by Cleveland on September 24, 1999. There at least, the Jays were playing out the string with noted franchise luminaries Pete Munro, Mike Romano, and John Hudek pitching. At least then they were giving out white mini-towels for the tears (pictured above). What became striking was how many balls the Red Sox were...

Red Sox 12, Blue Jays 2: Sox celebrate Victoria Day with a blowout

David Price looked solid and the offense went off in a rare Monday afternoon game. It was a happy Victoria Day for the Red Sox, who opened this four-game set in Toronto with a bang. David Price made his return from a short stint on the injured list and looked mostly good. He was a little off with his command early on and was punished with a home run, though the runs were unearned. He settled in as the day moved on, though, and retired the last ten he faced. The lefty was lifted early as Alex Cora tried to take it easy on his starter in his first game back from the IL. Meanwhile, the offense...

Game 47 Gamethread: Red Sox vs. Blue Jays

The Red Sox are coming off a frustrating series where they lost two of three to the Astros, arguably the best team in all of baseball. Still, it felt like they should have taken two of those games, and they’ll look to recover with a quartet of games north of the border. We start with a little afternoon action on Monday with David Price returning from the IL to take on Edwin Jackson. First pitch is scheduled for 1:07 PM ET, and this will be your space to discuss the action.

Red Sox at Blue Jays Lineups: A Monday Matinee

Celebrating Victoria Day in Canada....without J.D. We’ve got some Monday afternoon baseball for you as the Red Sox are up in Toronto where they’ll celebrate Victoria Day with a matinee game. For Boston, the big story is the return of David Price, who has been out for a little over two weeks with an elbow injury. It was never thought to be overly serious, and while they decided to push him back a bit from a potential start against the Astros this past weekend, an 18-day injured list stint is not too bad. He’ll have Sandy León catching him on Monday as well, with the catcher making a...
