On the bright side, Webster looks promising

BOSTON -- If Tuesday’s 4-3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim proved anything for the Red Sox, it’s that starting pitching isn't one of the team's problems. Rookie Allen Webster pitched six strong innings against the Angels, allowing three runs on seven hits and walking two to earn a no-decision in the contest. The loss went to Koji Uehara, who allowed the game’s go-ahead run on back-to-back doubles with two out in the ninth to drop to 5-3 on the season.

Angels Get To Koji In Ninth; Top Red Sox, 4-3

(AP Photo/Elise Amendola)As we all know, everything—and I mean everything—ultimately has a New England connection. And so it was tonight at Fenway, when Providence, Rhode Island's Chris Iannetta stroked an RBI Wall-Ball double off Koji Uehara—giving his Halos a 4-3 victory over The Carmine Hose. Koji got the first two outs in the 9th, but Brennan Boesch (not to be confused with Hieronymus Bosch) roped a shot out of the reach of Mookie "JBJ Would Have Had It" Betts. Boston had fought back from a 3-1 deficit on RBIs by Mike Napoli and Brock Holt (who earlier was robbed of a three-run HR...

Red Sox 3, Angels 4: A rare Koji loss

The Red Sox fought back from a 3-1 deficit in the middle innings, but Koji Uehara stumbled with two outs in the ninth, suffering a rare loss. So, if I were to tell you that both Allen Webster and Koji Uehara pitched in a game the Red Sox lost, what's the story you imagine? For me, it's an early 5-0 hole, a valiant fight to get back in the game, followed by a lengthy exchange of zeroes in extra innings. Ultimately, the game ends in the fourteenth inning, when the Red Sox are forced to go to the dregs of their bullpen. Tuesday night, both Allen Webster and Koji Uehara pitched in a game the...

Daily Red Sox Links: Allen Craig, Koji Uehara, David Ortiz

Today's links look at Allen Craig's struggles, what to do with Koji and how Ortiz feels about the team being ... not as good as last year. The tales of Allen Craig's demise have been greatly exaggerated, according to Allen Craig and the team who traded for him. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal) What should the Red Sox do with Koji? (Scott Lauber; Boston Herald) And Brandon Workman? (Ricky Doyle; NESN) Does Papi need a hug? (Nick Cafardo; Boston Globe) Maybe he'd enjoy some of the victory brew Schlafy brewery made as part of a World Series bet. (Gary Dzen; Boston.com) Or this scouting...

Deal Koji Uehara in for 1 more

ST. LOUIS — If Koji Uehara wants advice on one way to handle free agency while pushing 40, he can always ask Hiroki Kuroda, his one-time rival in the Japanese Central League.Since 2011, as he pitched into his late-30s, Kuroda has been content to play on a series of one-year contracts. After each season, the last three with the New York Yankees, he decided whether to return to the big leagues or go home to Japan before ultimately signing another one-year deal.Could Uehara take a similar approach this winter?

Red Sox dealings: Real-life fantasy baseball

BOSTON -- This is fantasy baseball, if the rotisserie version was played with hundreds of millions of dollars, playoff berths, civic prestige and professional reputations at stake. You want Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes? OK, we’ll take Yoenis Cespedes and a draft pick. John Lackey? How about Joe Kelly and Allen Craig? Andrew Miller? C’mon, give us your best shot, and if you want to talk about Koji Uehara instead, we’re prepared to listen.

Koji Uehara, Red Sox haven’t talked contract extension

TORONTO — Normally news that there hasn’t been any negotiations between a 39 year old relief pitcher in the final year of his contract might not be worth mentioning. But Koji Uehara isn’t your ordinary 39 year old relief pitcher. Uehara told WEEI.com prior to the Red Sox‘ game against the Blue Jays Wednesday night [...]
