Red Sox players avoid World Baseball Classic

Red Sox players avoid World Baseball Classic

A number of Sox considered playing in the WBC but only a handful are going through with it. The fourth World Baseball Classic tournament will take place in March and MLB players are finalizing their decision to play or sit this one out. Red Sox players from David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia to Daisuke Matsuzaka and Adam Stern to Wily Mo Pena and Lenny DiNardo have played for their country in the past. For Matsuzaka, the 2006 tournament was his introduction to most of the baseball-watching population of the planet. He took home MVP honors in both 2006 and 2009 helping Japan win the first two...

According to The Providence Journal's Brian MacPherson, the Red Sox are not allowing Eduardo Rodriguez to pitch in the upcoming World Baseball Classic. In 2016, Rodriguez injured his knee and could only pitch 107 innings that season. Recently, he re-injured the same knee and the Red Sox are understandably cautious about his recovery process. E-Rod—if healthy—will likely compete for the fourth and fifth rotation spots along with Steven Wright and Drew Pomeranz.

Which current Red Sox will make it into Cooperstown? Dustin Pedroia is building his case

Wednesday is Hall of Fame day. It’s when we uncover the next class. But with most of the voting having gone public, the results will ultimately be somewhat anti-climatic. That’s why we should spend today having a different conversation. We have plenty of time for the David Ortiz talk. The year 2021, to be exact. […]

MLB Network Ranks Pedroia As Fourth-Best Second-Baseman

Recently, we reported that Baseball Essential had ranked Dustin Pedroia as the seventh-best second-baseman in the game. Now, MLB Network has deemed The Muddy Chicken as the fourth-best second-sacker right now. The only current MLB second-basemen ranked ahead of The laser Show were: Jose Altuve, Robinson Cano and Daniel Murphy. After Pedroia, the rest of the list includes:   Ian Kinsler, Jason Kipnis, DJ LeMahieu, Brian Dozier, Logan Forsythe and Ben Zobrist. Pedroia is coming off an outstanding, injury-free year and will be a vital cog in the 2017 Red Sox offense.

Baseball Essential Ranks Pedroia As Seventh-Best 2B

Baseball Essential Ranks Pedroia As Seventh-Best 2B

(AP Photo)The Baseball Essential website has ranked Red Sox second-baseman Dustin Pedroia as the seventh-best MLB player at his position. Pedroia had a huge bounce-back (and injury-free) 2016 and has catapulted back into the "best second-baseman" conversation. Ranked before The Muddy Chicken are: Jose Altuve, Robinson Cano, Brian Dozier, Daniel Murphy, Ian Kinsler and DJ LaMahieu. Said the website of the 33-year-old Laser Show,"Pedroia proved he is still among the best at his position and likely will continue to be as he assumes the role of grizzled veteran on a young Red Sox team". Clearly,...

Boston Red Sox lineup 2017: With David Ortiz retired, who bats third, cleanup? Might Andrew Benintendi bat second?

Boston Red Sox lineup 2017: With David Ortiz retired, who bats third, cleanup? Might Andrew Benintendi bat second?

Dustin Pedroia is a fit anywhere at the top of the Boston Red Sox batting order, including cleanup. Ideally though, he will be used at leadoff or the two hole.

In 2017, Beware Of The Red Sox Ghosts Of 2011

In 2017, Beware Of The Red Sox Ghosts Of 2011

We all remember the headline in The Boston Herald: 'Best Team Ever'. It was March of 2011 and the Red Sox seemed poised to dominate major league baseball with a 'Super Team': Adrian Gonzaelz, Carl Crawford, David Ortiz, Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia. On the mound: Jon Lester, Josh Beckett, John Lackey, Clay Buchholz and Daisuke Matsuzaka. Even their bench had stars in Mike Cameron and Jason Varitek (backing up Jarrod Saltalamacchia). And, of course, games would be closed out by Daniel Bard and Jonathan Papelbon. Game. Set. Match. World Series Champs. NESN's website actually said this in...
