Red Sox 8, White Sox 7: Sox skirt disaster

Losing a game started by James Shields is one very black mark. The Red Sox narrowly avoided it Thursday afternoon. The Red Sox were terribly, terribly close to disaster. In a game started by James Shields, who had allowed 21 earned runs in his last 8.2 innings of work, that's the only way to describe coming away with a loss. Frankly, anything less than a blowout merits some disappointment. The Red Sox? They needed extra innings to get the job done. The reasons why they needed those extra innings are...far more numerous than you'd like. They needed extra innings because Rick Porcello was...

Daily Red Sox Links: Yoan Moncada, Hanley Ramirez, David Price

Today's links look at Rick Porcello's 2016 compared to the previous season, trying to figure out exactly who Christian Vazquez is as a baseball player, and a look at how Ryan LaMarre is feeling after being called up. David Price's season obviously got off to a rough start, but he's turned things around and then some. (Sam Galanis; NESN) It's official: Yoan Moncada is heading up to Portland next week. (Scott Lauber; ESPN Boston) Among the many fun things about the Red Sox early in the 2016 season has been watching Hanley Ramirez on the base paths. (John Tomase; WEEI) How does Rick...

Red Sox 2, Mariners 1: David Price brings home the series win

The Sox needed this win pretty badly, and David Price delivered it on a silver platter. If Rick Porcello gave the Red Sox what they needed on Saturday, David Price on Monday gave them what they wanted. This was the sort of performance the Sox signed up for when they offered him quite so much money in the offseason. This was just top-flight dominance from the lefty ace. There was a blip in the fourth on a Franklin Gutierrez home run, but that's kind of just what Gutierrez has been doing to the Red Sox. They've apparently run into him at the wrong time, and paid the price in bombs aplenty....

Game 68, Mariner at Red Sox

Adrian Sampson vs. Rick Porcello, 1:10pm Adrian Sampson’s a strike thrower whose primary breaking ball’s a slider. He’s shown some sizable platoon splits in the minors, as his change hasn’t quite been MLB-quality.

ESPN 'Cy Predictor' Has Steven Wright At Number Five

Despite Red Sox knuckle-baller Steven Wright leading the AL in ERA (2.09), there's been very little Cy Young talk going his way. However, ESPN's relatively neutral "Cy Predictor" ranks Wright in the fifth spot on the list—trailing Chris Sale, Zach Britton, Chris Tillman and Danny Salazar. And, since Britton is a closer and Wright trails Salazar by just one-tenth of a point, you could make the case that Wright is the third highest-ranked starter on the list. Interestingly, Rick Porcello comes in ninth on the ESPN list. Former Red Sox pitcher Rich Hill (now with Oakland) ranks just ahead of...
