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...

The Strange Case Of The Mookie Betts Strikeout Spree

The Strange Case Of The Mookie Betts Strikeout Spree

We were getting used to it: "Mookie Betts is the toughest guy to strike out in MLB", all the analysts would tell us. And—up until about a month ago—that was pretty much true throughout Mookie's career. Then, something happened. Mookie began flailing at sliders out of the strike zone and whiffing on high fastballs. Just last night, he struck out two more times. Check out this scary trend: From All-Star Break in 2016 to the All-Star Break 2017, Mookie struck out a grand total of five times. After this year's All-Star Break, he has fanned nine times already! What the heck is going on? Maybe...

Where is Mookie Betts’ power?

Where is Mookie Betts’ power?

The Red Sox could really use a hot streak from their star right fielder. Recently, I talked about the Red Sox offense and how they can and have been surviving with a David Ortiz-type presence in the lineup. The main takeaway is that they have a lot of good hitters who are capable of hitting like great ones for stretches during the year. Each of those stretches goes a long way towards making this offense tick. With all of that being said, though, they have been missing the production they should be getting from their best player over the last couple of months. Mookie Betts simply hasn’t...

Boston Red Sox: Success depends on play of Rafael Devers

It’s usually not a good sign when your success hinges on the play of a 20-year-old. The Boston Red Sox may be in this exact situation, they shouldn’t be too worried though. After all, Rafael Devers is no normal 20-year-old. All year long, the Red Sox lineup has featured some fantastic talent. Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley Jr. […] The post Boston Red Sox: Success depends on play of Rafael Devers appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Daily Red Sox Links: Eduardo Nunez, Mookie Betts, David Price

Today’s links look at Eduardo Nuñez’ hot start to his Red Sox career, the need for Mookie Betts to get back going, and the Red Sox bullpen ahead of Craig Kimbrel. Eduardo Nuñez has been pretty okay since coming to the Red Sox. (Cam Ellis; BP Boston) The new guys have the lineup rolling, but if the Red Sox are going to play up to their full capabilities they need Mookie Betts to get rolling. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) Boston has a pretty solid one-two punch to throw out ahead of Craig Kimbrel in Addison Reed and Matt Barnes. (Chad Jennings; Boston Herald) In injured pitcher news,...

How sustainable is Eduardo Nuñez’ performance?

How sustainable is Eduardo Nuñez’ performance?

He’s not going to keep this up, but Note: This post was written before Tuesday’s game in Tampa Bay, a game in which Eduardo Nuñez went 3-5. The numbers below do not reflect that performance. After a month of July in which the bats completely fell asleep, the Red Sox lineup is finally starting to come around (Tuesday’s game notwithstanding). There are a bunch of reasons why this is the case, but there are two that I feel are the most important. The first is simply that they were never going to be this bad. The core of the lineup -- Andrew Benintendi, Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts,...

Red Sox at Rays lineup: Pedroia returns, Hanley sits, lineup shuffled for Chris Sale

Mookie Betts is batting cleanup, while Eduardo Nunez plays second base and leads of. Happy Sale Day! The Red Sox (63-49) look to win their seventh straight game when they face the Rays (58-55) in the first matchup of a two-game series tonight in St. Petersburg (7:10 p.m., NESN). It’ll be Chris Sale (2.70 ERA), coming off a rocky start that ended up becoming Boston’s biggest win of the year, against Austin Pruitt (5.65 ERA), who the Sox saw in April when he was relieving games for Tampa Bay. Advantage: Red Sox. There’s a lot of shuffling in the lineup, with Dustin Pedroia returning...
