Doug Fister threw a one-hitter. That one hit: a leadoff homer by Francisco Lindor on his third pitch, a 74.9 mph curveball. The Red Sox righty then dominated.

Boston Red Sox: Doug Fister dominates in crucial outing

The first batter Doug Fister faced on Tuesday hit a home run. It looked like another rough night for the veteran. If it was indeed another bad outing, it could be his last as a member of the Boston Red Sox. After that though, the Red Sox starter was untouchable. In fact, that home run was the only […] The post Boston Red Sox: Doug Fister dominates in crucial outing appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Red Sox 9, Indians 1: Holy crap Doug Fister

Red Sox 9, Indians 1: Holy crap Doug Fister

Doug Fister pitches insanely well. This game wasn’t a must-win for the Red Sox, but with a loss on Tuesday Boston was in danger of dropping three of four in this series with Corey Kluber taking the mound for the bad guys on Wednesday. The Red Sox were turning to Doug Fister, who didn’t exactly inspire the most confidence heading into the game. As it turned out, Fister was more than fine as he completely shut down the Indians lineup and helped the Red Sox cruise to an easy victory. Fister’s performance in this game was huge for the Red Sox, and really huge for his role the rest of...

Should the Red Sox keep giving Doug Fister starts?

Should the Red Sox keep giving Doug Fister starts?

Should Monday’s start be the end of the Doug Fister era? Generally speaking, the Red Sox rotation is in tremendous shape as we speak. Chris Sale has probably been the best pitcher in baseball this year and has put himself firmly in the MVP discussion, never mind being atop the Cy Young race. Drew Pomeranz has been a huge boost and will could very well garner some down-ballot Cy Young votes himself. Eduardo Rodriguez is still searching for a bit of consistency, but his last start against New York was a massive step in the right direction. Rick Porcello isn’t and almost certainly won’t...

Red Sox Take Two-

Red Sox Take Two-"Fister" To The Jaw, Fall, 7-3

(AP Photo)To paraphrase Pulp Fiction's Winston Wolfe, "Let's not start polishing up the Duck Boats quite yet." In a rude shock to the 'invulnerability' of the 2017 Carmine Hose, the Indians laid a haymaker on the AL East division leader, 7-3. Edwin Encarnacion went yard twice with two-run shots and Trevor Bauer struck out 11 in just 6.2 innings. Doug Fister was the guy we thought we were getting: five runs over 4.1 innings in a miserable outing. Lost in the loss were two more HRs by new phenom Rafael Devers and another majestic shot by Andrew Benintendi. No matter, a loss is a loss—and now...

Plus Pablo Sandoval is back in the news. Rafael Devers is awesome. Here’s another piece explaining why. (Owen Pence; Boston Globe) Speaking of Devers, with him and Andrew Benintendi making big contributions, the Red Sox clearly didn’t give up on their future with trades over the last year or so. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) There are other options the Red Sox could turn to for the fifth rotation spot as they await the return of David Price. (Christopher Smith; MassLive) Matt Barnes has had trouble locating pitches on the road, which is something the Red Sox need him to fix. (Mark...

Red Sox - 3, Indians - 7 : Super Rookies Can’t Win Game Singlehandedly

Devers and Benintendi were incredible. No one else really was. With Doug Fister taking the mound for the Red Sox in 2017, you can generally count on three things. First and foremost, that he’ll probably go at least five innings, and keep you roughly in the game, but usually playing from behind. Secondly, that he’ll walk a lot of guys. Thirdly, that he’ll allow enough hits to raise your blood pressure. Many of these things happened. Last game out, he didn’t walk a single batter. It looked like a sign of better things to come. This was a false hope. In the second inning he walked...

We say goodbye to a legend from the 1986 Red Sox. First, our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Don Baylor, the former Red Sox DH who passed away on Monday. (Kirk Bohls; Austin America-Statesman) It wasn’t the best July for the Red Sox, but things are going swimmingly in August. (Julian Benbow: Boston Globe) A lot of that has to do with the undeniable and inarguable fact that the Red Sox won the trade deadline.
