If the Red Sox have another move to make, they have to make it now

If all this talk has been posturing, they’d be smart to cut that out soon. If you’re willing to take the Red Sox and their front office at their word, they are essentially done tinkering with their roster. They brought back a couple of key October pieces in Steve Pearce and Nathan Eovaldi and then supplemented their shaky bullpen with a whole lot of minor-league signings hoping one or two would stick. Beyond that, its been mostly a quiet winter for the World Champs. On the one hand, we really don’t have any choice but to take them at their word, at least for now. There hasn’t been...

Boston Red Sox need Craig Kimbrel more than ever

The Boston Red Sox have a major hole in the bullpen, but the answer is still waiting in free agency. It has been a difficult, and somewhat quiet, offseason for the Boston Red Sox. While they were able to retain World Series heroes Steve Pearce and Nathan Eovaldi, their already questionable bullpen has weakened.

One Big Question: Is Nathan Eovaldi’s pinpoint control here to stay?

One Big Question: Is Nathan Eovaldi’s pinpoint control here to stay?

If so, baby we got a stew goin’ Welcome to Over the Monster’s One Big Question series. For those unfamiliar, this is something of a season roster preview where over the next 40(ish) (week)days we’ll be taking a look at each player on the 40-man roster prior to the season. If changes are made to the roster between now and Opening Day, we’ll cover the newly added players. Rather than previewing what to expect in a general sense, the goal of this series is to find one overarching question for each player heading into the coming season. We’ll go one-by-one alphabetically straight down...

Daily Red Sox Links: Rick Porcello, Chris Sale, Nathan Eovaldi

The luxury tax, for better or for worse (worse. It’s worse.) is playing a big role in the Red Sox offseason. Here’s a closer look at the whole picture. (Steve Adams; MLB Trade Rumors) The free agent market as a whole has obviously been moving at a glacial pace this year, and it has Rick Porcello understandably worried. (Evan Drellich; NBC Sports Boston) All of this lack of movement puts a damper on the sport as a whole, particularly compared to the NBA. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal) Chris Sale needs to figure out how to balance velocity with making it through the season, writes...

Daily Red Sox Links: J.D. Martinez, Craig Kimbrel, J.T. Realmuto

In today’s links, we look back at the J.D. Martinez signing, hear another Craig Kimbrel rumor and discuss a blockbuster trade’s likelihood. Since we’re still waiting around on a sluggish offseason, let’s go back to last year when another slow offseason ended with the Red Sox signing J.D. Martinez. I’d say that worked out for everyone involved. (Mike Lupica; MLB.com) Activity has been much harder to find this year, even though the Red Sox did bring back Nathan Eovaldi and Steve Pearce. Is that enough to keep pace with the rest of the AL contenders? (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports...

Replacing the workload of Craig Kimbrel and Joe Kelly will not be easy

Replacing the workload of Craig Kimbrel and Joe Kelly will not be easy

Obviously quality matters, but the Red Sox will have a hard enough time just replacing the innings. I think it’s about time that I just start copying/pasting the same paragraph to the top of pretty much every post that goes up these days, because they all have the same topic. This is only, like, 30 percent joke, too. Do not be surprised to read these words again this week. Obviously, I’m talking about the Red Sox bullpen, which is the only topic of conversation around this team since, oh, the first week of December after they brought back Nathan Eovaldi. In a way, it’s not such a bad...
