Red Sox 5, Yankees 1: Rick Porcello shines against New York

Red Sox 5, Yankees 1: Rick Porcello shines against New York

Rick Porcello and the bullpen shut down the Yankees. With it looking more and more like David Price might not be able to return in 2017, the Red Sox really need one (or preferably both) of Rick Porcello and Eduardo Rodriguez to step up behind Chris Sale and Drew Pomeranz. Porcello has been looking like a pitcher who’s ready to turn things around of late, and he kept that going on Sunday. There were times where his command didn’t look perfectly sharp, but he made the most of it and the Yankees couldn’t really do much of anything against him in this game. The Red Sox needed a good start...

Red Sox 5, Cardinals 4: Mookie Betts gives the Sox another walkoff

Red Sox 5, Cardinals 4: Mookie Betts gives the Sox another walkoff

It is an enjoyable experience to watch this team. This team, my goodness. They never seem to make it easy, and this game was frustrating for a long time, but Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts came through in the ninth inning and that was enough for a victory. Before that, the game was marked by a poor inning from Eduardo Rodriguez that looked like enough to propel St. Louis to a victory. The offense was also frustrating for much of this game, but as has been the case so often this year they came through when it mattered most. This team is fun, you guys. This was a relatively big start for...

Red Sox vs. Cardinals lineup: The batting order is pretty much set these days

Red Sox vs. Cardinals lineup: The batting order is pretty much set these days

That’s good for the guy who does the daily lineups post, at least. One day after the Red Sox (68-51) walloped the Cardinals (61-58), Boston looks to complete a two-game series sweep tonight at Fenway Park (7:10 a.m.). It’s Lance Lynn, who is damn good (3.12 ERA), at least by National League standards, against Eduardo Rodriguez (3.80 ERA), who is good by American League standards and thus damn good by N.L. standards as well. The batting order is effectively unchanged from yesterday and looks to be pretty stable against righties going forward, with today’s only swap being the catcher...

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...

Today we look at Bogaerts’ slump, life without Price and E-Rod’s cutter. Xander Bogaerts had a big night on Tuesday, but he still needs to reverse the slump he’s been on more consistently. (Scott Lauber; ESPN) David Price is taking the steps toward recovery. (Meredith Perri; MassLive) However, could the Red Sox survive without him? It’s possible. (John Tomase; WEEI) It’s good news when the Red Sox play on Tuesday, as they are 15-2 on that day of the week this year. (Nick Cafardo; Boston Globe) Eduardo Rodriguez is now featuring a cutter, which has helped him get back to pitching...

Boston Red Sox: Eduardo Rodriguez looking dominant again

The Boston Red Sox lost 5-4 to the New York Yankees on Friday night. Don’t look at Eduardo Rodriguez when casting the blame though. For the second straight start, the left-hander was in control. Could he be returning to the dominant pitcher we saw over the first two months? It looked like it would be a long […] The post Boston Red Sox: Eduardo Rodriguez looking dominant again appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Bullpen Choke-Fest Dooms Red Sox In Bronx, 5-4

Bullpen Choke-Fest Dooms Red Sox In Bronx, 5-4

(AP Photo)One of Boston's strengths this year, its bullpen, abandoned the team on Friday night. Ahead 3-0 in the eighth, a series of relievers choked away the game and the team's win streak. Let's name names, shall we? Thanks to Addison Reed (0 IP, 4 runs) and Joe Kelly (0.2 IP, 1 run) we are now just 3.5 games up on The Evil Ones. Period. The meltdown wasted HRs by Hanley Ramirez and Andrew Benintendi and some 9th-inning heroics (which we won't discuss, Eduardo Nunez). An other fine 6-inning pitching performance by Eduardo Rodriguez was also wasted. Bad loss. No Biscuit.

Red Sox 4, Yankees 5: Addison Reed implodes, Sox snap streak

Red Sox 4, Yankees 5: Addison Reed implodes, Sox snap streak

That was crushing. What an awful way to snap an eight-game winning streak. The Red Sox got an outstanding performance from Eduardo Rodriguez tonight, but Addison Reed and Joe Kelly combined to implode and give the Yankees a win. It’s a little unfair to weigh their contributions equally as Reed was clearly more responsible, but the eighth inning in which they pitched was an all-around horrible frame. As for the offense, they had a few big swings but it was a frustrating night for much of the game. They left some chances with runners in scoring position and then couldn’t come through in...

Red Sox ar Yankees lineup: Number nine? Number nine? Number nine?

Eduardo Rodriguez starts in the first game of a lot of games against the Yankees to come. Here it is. The Red Sox (65-49), winners of eight straight games, look to keep their feet on the proverbial gas pedal against the reloaded Yankees (60-53) in the first game of a three-game series —and first of 10 showdowns in 24 games — tonight at Yankee Stadium (7:10 p.m., NESN). It’ll be "El Gualo" Eduardo Rodriguez (4.08 ERA) versus "Who cares, he’s a Yankee now" Jaime Garcia (4.49 ERA), who gets traded often. The lineup is missing its most decorated veteran of the rivalry, however, as...

It's Baaaaaack! Get Ready For Empire-Red Sox Showdown

We all have one day off to contemplate the gravity of the Friday-Sunday series in Baghdad-By-The Hudson. Three games. As big as they come in the Yankee-Red Sox rivalry. Boston will enter the series either 4.5 or 3.5 games ahead of The Bronx Embalmers—depending on tonight's battle in The Great White North. The Red Sox will send three left-handers at The Evil Ones: Eduardo Rodriguez on Friday; Drew Pomeranz on Saturday; Chris Sale on Sunday. New York doesn't even know who they'll send to the mound on Sunday night, but we do know we will get Jaime Garcia on Friday and Luis Severino (their best...

Hitters have adjusted to Rick Porcello

Hitters have adjusted to Rick Porcello

It’s past time for him to make a counter-adjustment. The Red Sox rotation is good. I’m not sure this can be debated. That being said, they could really use someone else to take the next step behind Chris Sale and Drew Pomeranz. While those two have been *kissing fingers like a chef* the rest of the rotation has been inconsistent in terms of health and performance. David Price is probably the most likely to step up as he was on a nice roll before hitting the disabled list, but it’s not clear when — or even if — he’ll be able to return. Eduardo Rodriguez has shown great flashes...

'Mitchy Walk-Off' Sends Red Sox To 3-2 Extras Victory

'Mitchy Walk-Off' Sends Red Sox To 3-2 Extras Victory

Mitch Moreland came into the game late as a defensive replacement. He ended things with offensive flair—lining a rising shot into the Monster Seats for a 3-2, 11th-inning walk-off win. An inning earlier things didn't look so good. The Pale Hose got the first two on against Heath Hembree, but The Hirsute One fired a bunt attempt to third—and Rafael Devers held the bag for the force out. Then, Christian Vazquez gunned down a lolly-gagging runner off second, and soon, the inning was over. That set the stage for "Mitchy Walk-Off". Eduardo Rodriguez had another high-pitch count, so-so...

Red Sox 3, White Sox 2: Mitch Moreland walks it off on his day off.

Red Sox 3, White Sox 2: Mitch Moreland walks it off on his day off.

The Red Sox win their fourth straight, this time on a walk off. Another day, another walk off. This one wasn’t pretty throughout, as the Red Sox offense was dominated by Carlos Rodon for most of the contest. On the other side, Eduardo Rodriguez put together some good results but it probably overstates how well he pitched. Against a team like the White Sox, you’d obviously prefer easy wins, but baseball doesn’t work like that. The Red Sox will take wins however they can get them, and this one just happened to take a little longer. For much of this game, it was frustrating both in...
