FanPost Friday - Player You Were Most Wrong About

FanPost Friday - Player You Were Most Wrong About

Woops. We made an oopsie. Baseball is a funny game. Sometimes, players perform exactly as you’d expect. For example, I think most of us expected JD Martinez to come in here, hit a million dingers, and eventually leave us when he can opt out after the 2019 season. But more interestingly, and more frequent, are the players that seem to defy our expectations time and time again. For me, that player is Mookie Betts. I wasn’t super low on him, looking to trade him at every chance or anything, but I definitely thought he was a helium prospect back in 2013. The power seemingly came out of...

Can we stop acting like catchers are ruining the best team in baseball?

Can we stop acting like catchers are ruining the best team in baseball?

Sandy León’s actually hitting, but more importantly, forest for the trees, my dudes. The Red Sox are 34-16. They have the most wins in baseball and the highest winning percentage in baseball and show no signs of slowing down as summer approaches. They have MVP candidates in Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez and will get a former MVP back today when Dustin Pedroia makes his season debut. They have Chris Sale and Craig Kimbrel and a 25-man roster that largely makes your eyes pop out of your head in awe. They’re that good. Hell, they’re great. There are exceptions, of course, and no one...

Daily Red Sox Links: David Price, Drew Pomeranz, Mookie Betts

Today’s links look at some pitchers heading in opposite directions, Hanley Ramirez’ recent woes, and draft strategy. David Price is starting to get rolling, and Rob Bradford wonders if he has become the most important player in the American League. (Rob Bradford; WEEI) Meanwhile, Drew Pomeranz is heading in the opposite direction, and it’s becoming more and more concerning with every start. (Brett Cowett; BP Boston) Andrew Benintendi was off on Thursday, but he earned that day off with great play of late. (Michael Silverman; Boston Herald) A slumping counterpart to Benintendi has been...

Rays 6 Red Sox 3: Boston does bullpen day

Rays 6 Red Sox 3: Boston does bullpen day

Snell is strong through six innings The Tampa Bay Rays took the final game of the series against the Boston Red Sox, capitalizing on a shaky Rick Porcello start and some Boston misplays. This looked like a good one for the Rays out of the gate. Blake Snell started with about as strong an inning as you could imagine. There’s nothing like disposing of Mookie Betts on three strikes to start the game. Snell then struck out Hanley Ramirez looking with a beautiful 80 mph curve. JD Martinez was kind enough to ground out on the first pitch, giving Snell as quick and masterful inning. The Rays...

Daily Red Sox Links: Appreciating Kevin Youkilis

YOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUK will be inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame today. Let’s remember just how good the Greek God of Walks was. Plus putting Mookie Betts’ season in historical perspective, skipping the Home Run Derby and keeping tabs on Dustin Pedroia’s return. The first time I became aware of Kevin Youkilis was when I read Moneyball. He was referred to as the “Greek God of Walks” and was a player that Oakland A’s maestro Billy Beane wanted to help build his OBP-heavy squad. The Boston Red Sox correctly held onto him and that worked out pretty darn well. A...

Some of Alex Cora’s lineup decisions have been strange

Some of Alex Cora’s lineup decisions have been strange

There are a couple positions where he seems stuck in his ways. Generally speaking, it’s hard to complain about the start of Alex Cora’s tenure as the Red Sox manager. Of course, people will try — hell, most of this post is going to be complaints about decisions being made by Cora — but it’s hard to imagine things going much better to start this season than what’s happened. The Red Sox currently have the best record in all of baseball, which seems pretty good! They’ve also gotten some big starts from a couple of key pieces like Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts, at least some of...
