Red Sox One Of Three Teams In On Tigers Lefty RP Wilson

With all the talk of adding a 3B at the trade deadline, the Red Sox have nearly as big a need in their over-performing and over-worked bullpen. Multiple report suggest that Boston is one of three teams (along with the Astros and Brewers) interested in trading for 29-year-old lefty reliever Justin Wilson of the Tigers. He is not to be confused with Alex Wilson, the right-handed reliever we shipped (along with Yoenis Cespedes) to the Tigers for Rick Porcello. Justin has 10 saves this year for Detroit and a 2.75 ERA. He could be used as a set-up guy for closer Craig Kimbrel. No word on what...

Red Sox 0, Yankees 3: Insert picture of Red Sox offense on a milk carton here

Where in the world is the Red Sox offense? Someone needs to step up and lead the search party for the Red Sox offense. After managing just one run over the 16-inning marathon on Saturday night, the lineup followed that same trend in Sunday’s first game. Going up against CC Sabathia, there was essentially zero hard contact on the day. To make matters even more frustrating, they were able to get on base a few times, but the squad just continued a disturbing trend of being unable to come up with a big hit to knock in a run or, god forbid, runs. For his part, Red Sox starter Rick Porcello was...

Rick Porcello goes against CC Sabathia in Game 1 of today’s ill-timed doubleheader. The Red Sox (51-40) look to score some freaking runs after a frustrating-as-hell 16-inning Saturday loss to the motherloving Yankees (46-42) today at Fenway Park in the first game of an already exhausting doubleheader (1:05 p.m., NESN). One day after yesterday’s offensive implosion, the flailing Chris Young is batting cleanup as the lefty-hitting platoon is mostly in; Andrew Benintendi’s out there with Dustin Pedroia getting the afternoon off. “Wonderful” all around, especially after Bennie’s...

Raiders Of The Lost Offense Strike Again, Sox Lose, 1-0

Raiders Of The Lost Offense Strike Again, Sox Lose, 1-0

(AP Photo)It figures. Rick Porcello throws what amounts to a gem for him and his offense fizzles. Last year's Cy Young Award winner tossed a complete game six-hitter, striking out seven and walking none in the crushing 1-0 loss. Meanwhile, Boston mustered just three pathetic hits—even leaving the bases loaded in the ninth. A sacrifice fly was Porcello's only black mark on the day—and yet he became the MLB's first 11-game loser. One more game left before the break—but Boston's lead could be whittled to just 2.5 games after today.

Boston Red Sox: Rick Porcello twirls gem in final first half start

The Boston Red Sox may have lost on Saturday, but they finally got something they’ve been waiting for all year. Despite losing 1-0, Rick Porcello tossed a gem against the Tampa Bay Rays. Porcello is having a major Cy Young hangover. After winning the prestigious award in 2016, he’s struggled to puzzle hitters in 2017.

Red Sox 0, Rays 1: The bats waste a great outing from Rick Porcello

The pitching was great. The hitting....not so much. The Red Sox have had some tremendously frustrating games over the course of this first half, and almost all of them have involved their offense disappointing. This was another one of those games, and it was their third such game in the last four. On Saturday, they went up against Alex Cobb, who has been decidedly average this season but looked much better than that in this one. To be fair, the Red Sox offense contributed to that plenty, but we’ll get to that in a minute. First, Cobb deserves credit for how he pitched today. The righty...

Red Sox 7, Rangers 5: Dustin Pedroia does it all, leads Sox to extra-inning win

Red Sox 7, Rangers 5: Dustin Pedroia does it all, leads Sox to extra-inning win

Dustin Pedroia is incredible. The Red Sox came into this game playing the best baseball they’ve played all season and were looking to keep the good times rolling in some extreme heat out in Texas. This game went back and forth with Texas getting on the board first but not before the Red Sox threatened in the first. That would be a theme of the early parts of the game for Boston, and they got a couple baserunners in that first frame that were both left on base. In the bottom half of the first, Rick Porcello took the hill and got into early trouble when he allowed a one-out double that...
