Rafael Devers is controlling the zone....sort of

How exactly is Rafael Devers so scorching hot right now? The Red Sox are playing some of the best baseball in the entire league right now and are finally looking like the historically great team from last season, at least for a small stretch. Given how well they are playing, it’s clear there is more than one player heating up. In reality, it’s been a team effort from every area, with the offense exploding with regularity, the rotation starting to meet preseason expectations and the bullpen doing their job for the most part. Granted, the schedule hasn’t been the most intimidating group...

This 2019 Red Sox team was always built in the image of the 2018 club, and they are funally starting to look like that. (Michael Silverman; Boston Herald) It’s not just one area of the team that is changing things, but the starting pitching’s improvement from the start of the year certainly stands out the most. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal) ($$) On the other side of the ball, Rafael Devers has been a consistent force. (Julian Benbow; Boston Globe) As expected, Hector Velázquez is going to get the start on Sunday. (Christopher Smith; Masslive) Mitch Moreland has been an...

OTM Open Thread 5/4: It is Saturday

Happy Saturday everyone. The Red Sox had a hell of a night on Friday, getting a really impressive start from Chris Sale and a pair of monster dingers from Rafael Devers and Michael Chavis to get them past their tough loss on Thursday. They’ve now won four of five, and they’ll look to keep pushing this run with another win on Saturday. They’ll send Eduardo Rodriguez to the mound for that one to take on Manny Bañuelos for Chicago. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 PM ET. Meanwhile, at the same time the Bruins take on the Blue Jackets in a pivotal Game Five for that series, currently...

Chris Sale looked a lot like himself in Friday’s game, which wasn’t much of a surprise to Alex Cora. (Christopher Smith; Masslive) Sale’s return to Chicago was obviously the big story in that game, but it also gave Red Sox fans a chance to reminisce about the Yoán Monacada era. (Rob Braford; WEEI) As we talked about some on Friday, there aren’t really any easy answers for Rafael Devers’ defense at the hot corner. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston) Ryan Brasier hasn’t been terrible this year or anything, but he’s still searching for his command that made him so good in 2018....

Red Sox 6, White Sox 1: Chris Sale looked like Chris Sale

And Rafael Devers and Michael Chavis both destroyed baseballs. The Red Sox probably should have been looking for their fifth win in a row on Friday night, but thanks to a late-game implosion (and game-long malaise from the offense) on Thursday, they’d have to settle for four wins in five games. This was a relatively easy one for Boston, with Chris Sale looking as good as he did all year. It was the kind of night we’ve all been waiting for from the ace, who still wasn’t quite as sharp with the slider as he is at his best but still racked up ten strikeouts in six scoreless innings....

What can be done about defense from Rafael Devers at this point?

It’s frustrating, and there’s no easy solution. There are a few different categories of posts I write on here with different goals. Sometimes, I have a point I know I want to make. Those are pretty straightforward. In others, I start with a question and seek out an answer I believe I can figure out with my own research. At other times, I will again start with a question but doubt I can find a good answer myself yet hope others might be able to come to their own conclusions. Sometimes I just type words until I feel like I should just stop typing words. This time, I’m starting with a...
