What the Huston Street trade says about Koji Uehara and the Red Sox’ approach to the trade market

July has already seen a number of key trades take place, most recently on Friday, when the Angels acquired closer Huston Street (and a prospect) from the Padres for four prospects. The trade of Street represented the move of one area where the Red Sox potentially could have made some intriguing noise as sellers: Closer. [...]

One’s plenty of fun for Koji Uehara

One’s plenty of fun for Koji Uehara

MINNEAPOLIS — Koji Uehara wanted no part of being the closer to last night’s All-Star Game, saying “I asked the manager — I didn’t want to be in that situation.”But when he did show up — with a runner on third and two outs in the sixth inning — he showed up big, striking out Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco on four pitches: one fastball followed by three split-fingered fastballs in the American League’s 5-3 victory.

Uehara, family soak in All-Star experience

MINNEAPOLIS -- Koji Uehara’s son, Kazuma, toyed with his father’s cell phone, tugged at his shirt and continued to distract him as Uehara answered questions about his future. But not even Kaz, who became well known for shadowing his father during Boston’s World Series run last season, would pull Uehara away from this moment. “In Japan, this would not be possible,” Uehara said. “Bringing your family, kids to the All-Star Game, it’s certainly been fun.

Lefty-swinging Conor Gillaspie enjoys a power surge at friendly Fenway

BOSTON — Conor Gillaspie has this thing for the Pesky Pole at Fenway Park. Gillaspie’s pinch home run against closer Koji Uehara inside the storied right-field pole forced extra innings Thursday, the second time he took one out to the short side of the field in this series. He wrapped those two around a 420-foot plus blast to center field Wednesday, giving him homers in three consecutive games at Fenway and four in his last 24 at-bats. He had started the season...

Koji Uehara May Be On Tigers' Radar Screen

Koji Uehara May Be On Tigers' Radar Screen

Headed To Motown?There's been a lot of back-and-forth lately about the wisdom of trading Red Sox closer Koji Uehara. The proponents cite Koji's age (39), the fact that Boston is pretty much out of post-season contention, and the likelihood that Uehara would bring a boatload of decent players/prospects in return. People who oppose a trade argue that some elite closers have pitched effectively beyond the age of 40 (see some guy named Mariano Rivera), that The Carmine Hose are still technically in the hunt for a Wild Card, and you just don't give away that rare guy who is a virtual lock in the...
