Daily Red Sox Links: Rich Hill, James Paxton, Rafael Devers

Photo by Mark Brown/ It’s kind of a perfect metaphor for Major League Baseball that, right as the league is reaching an exciting point in the offseason and positive things are happening for the sport, they are imposing a lockout. But it’s where we are, and there is plenty of work to do to get this league to where it needs to be. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe) Eventually the lockout will be over and the transaction freeze will be over, and then next offseason will come. It is almost assuredly not going to match this one as the lockout created a unique circumstance,...

The Boston Red Sox, though, have largely sat out. Will they regret it? (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) Red Sox inactivity aside, this has been a thrilling few days for the sport in general, and speaks to what a deadline could mean for the league in the offseason.

Photo by Douglas P. DeFelice/ It’s certainly too early to judge the Red Sox offseason in any meaningful way, but the fact remains that they haven’t done as much as other clubs around the league heading towards the likely lockout. But they did sign Michael Wacha over the weekend. Here’s an introduction to the new Red Sox pitcher. (Conor Roche; Boston Globe) The righty is not coming off of a very impressive season with the Rays, and his last few years in general haven’t exactly been filled with elite production. Despite that, here’s why Wacha was an intriguing...

Red Sox Third Baseman Rafael Devers Named To All-MLB Second Team

Rafael Devers had himself an impressive season and it isn’t going unnoticed. First, the Boston Red Sox third baseman made his first of many All-Star appearances.

Projecting Red Sox’s 2022 Infield: Is It Really Worth Moving Rafael Devers?

The Boston Red Sox can rely on a solid core in the outfield in 2022. But when it comes to the infield — particularly the right side — there are more uncertainties.
