Nathan Eovaldi could be moving into the playoff rotation

Nathan Eovaldi could be moving into the playoff rotation

It’s a mild surprise, at least. For the last couple of months, pretty much ever since the Red Sox acquired Nathan Eovaldi from the Rays in the middle of July, the plans for Boston’s playoff rotation have seemed more or less straightforward. Perhaps there would be some shuffling in the order, but as long as everyone was healthy, it was always assumed that Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello and Eduardo Rodriguez would make up a theoretical four-man rotation, with Eovaldi transitioning into a relief role in October. In a way, dealing Jalen Beeks for the right-handed pitcher was killing...

Red Sox 4, Indians 5: Drew Pomeranz loses it in extras

And, well, Rick Porcello wasn’t great either This Red Sox-Indians series is objectively meaningless, and yet it’s been pretty damn entertaining. Saturday was the second straight close one, though Boston couldn’t come out on top this time around. Rick Porcello got the start and did not look good, though he also didn’t put the team out of the game. A couple solo dingers, a clutch hit from Andrew Benintendi and a strong performance out of the bullpen from Brian Johnson helped push the game to extras, but ultimately Drew Pomeranz lost it. Oh well. The Red Sox are really looking for...

Daily Red Sox Links: One win in New York would be magical

The Red Sox just have to beat the Yankees once more to win the AL East. Plus a look at Rick Porcello’s rough second half and the welcome party for the Worcester Red Sox. What’s one win in an ocean of them? That’s the question the Boston Red Sox must answer today. With their magic number to clinch the American League East sliced all the way down to two, all the Sox have to do is win two more games before the regular season is over to secure a divisional title and avoid playing the AL Wild Card Game. However, beating the New York Yankees today would wrap things up without any need for...

Red Sox 5, Mets 3: Brock Holt comes through again

And Rick Porcello was good, save for one inning. For a little while, it appeared this was going to be another frustrating day for the Red Sox. They failed to take advantage of early opportunities, the big bats weren’t doing a ton, Rick Porcello got hurt by a long ball and they were losing about halfway through. Things changed pretty quickly, though, and it was encouraging to see the team picked up by a rally started by the bottom half of the lineup. It was even more encouraging to see the bullpen hold on to a late lead with relatively little trouble. Ahead of a game against Jacob deGrom,...
