Top Sox chilling out

If it feels as if the Red Sox’ best hitters, like Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez and their best starter, Chris Sale, have cooled off in the second half, that’s because they have. From Aug. 1 through Sept. 19, only Martinez appears in a top 3 among AL players in a single significant category (batting average). That’s not to say Betts and Martinez will not be considered for the MVP or Sale for the Cy Young, but none of them are leaving a scintillating final impression. Best performers since August 1*HRChristian Yelich Brewers 16Hunter Renfroe Padres 16Khris Davis Athletics 16BAWilson...

Alex Cora diplomatic with Red Sox MVP thoughts

Subtitle: Wont choose between Betts, J.D.CLEVELAND — Alex Cora knows the right answer but he also knows he can’t win if he answers honestly when asked, like he was yesterday, about who should be the American League MVP if it’s between Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez.With the wisdom of King Solomon, Cora punted.“I don’t have a vote — I’ve got twins, and I love them both, I love my twins, I love them both,” he said. But c’mon, just pretend you had a vote.“In the NFL, they have the offensive player of the year and the MVP — that’s a pretty good way to do it,” said Cora....

The Red Seat: Episode 94- Lock it Up!

There is still much work to be done after clinching the division. Goal number two has been accomplished. After clinching a playoff berth the team finally made official what has seemed inevitable since the four game sweep of the Yankees at Fenway—another AL East crown. While the guys celebrated everyone from J.D. Martinez, Alex Cora, and Dave Dombrowski all have their eyes set on a bigger prize. The only things up for debate over the remaining nine games are who the Red Sox opponent will be on October 5th and how many wins will the club end up with. I’m personally rooting for at least...

FanPost Friday - Last Minute Playoff Roster Changes

A few weeks ago, there were a few calls for Brandon Phillips to be on the roster! Those faded pretty quickly! Is there a player who has impressed you down the stretch? J.D. Martinez and Mookie Betts are making the playoff roster. I’m pretty sure we all know this. I’m also pretty sure we all know that we’re going to be going into the playoffs as the official division winners, with the top seed in the playoffs, as we wait to see which wild card team gets the daunting task of having to steal a game (or two!) in Fenway Park. As we wait for that moment, however, we have a few small...

Red Sox 11, Yankees 6: It’s time to party

Red Sox 11, Yankees 6: It’s time to party

The division. It’s clinched. It’s done. It took a little longer than we would have liked, but it’s done. The Red Sox took care of business on Thursday night, with the offense breaking out of its slump and picking up a poor performance from Eduardo Rodriguez. The lefty was inefficient and struggled with control all night, and Heath Hembree gave up a devastating grand slam, but it didn’t matter. Brock Holt, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Mookie Betts had big home runs, J.D. Martinez had a couple of big hits and the Red Sox are currently pouring out more champagne than I’ll ever be able to...
