Daily Red Sox Links: Rick Porcello, Hanley Ramirez, Ryan LaMarre

Today’s links look at another award for Rick Porcello, the CBA negotiations dictating offseason strategy, and a new home for Ryan LaMarre. Rick Porcello got another award on Tuesday, taking home the AL Comeback Player of the Year. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal) Hanley Ramirez was arguably a better candidate, though, as his 2016 was one to look fondly upon. (Bryan Joiner; BP Boston) The Red Sox have been quiet so far this winter, and you can expect more of that as the CBA negotiations continue. (Evan Drellich; Boston Herald) Speaking of those negotiations, MLBPA head Tony Clark...

Rick Porcello named 2016 American League Comeback Player of the Year

More hardware for he of history’s worst extension Rick Porcello has won the 2016 American League Comeback Player of the Year Award. I’ll give you all a minute to get over your shock. It’s pretty hard to argue against Porcello. His low point was pretty damn low. At one point not too early on in 2015 he was having a John Lackey 2011-style season, holding a 5.90 ERA in the first half as he was knocked all over—and out of—American League ballparks. He finished the year with a 4.93 ERA with his contract extension mocked by fans and pundits around the league. This year he won the Cy...

Daily Red Sox Links: Rick Porcello, Dave Dombrowski

Today’s links look at the lack of aggressiveness so far from the Red Sox, some players who could be dealt this offseason, and some possible answers at DH. Last year, Dave Dombrowski and the Red Sox felt the need to go get their targets early in the winter. That is not the case this year. (Ian Browne; RedSox.com) If they eventually do decide to make a trade, here are some major leaguers they could deal. (Jason Mastrondato; Boston Herald) The Winter Meetings would typically be the place to make such a deal, but they may be skipped this year due to stalls in the CBA negotiations. (Jen...

Today’s links look at the Pablo Sandoval rumors, the most important people in the organization, and more CBA news. Unsurprisingly, those Pablo Sandoval rumors from the weekend are already being denied.

(Peter Abraham; Boston Globe) Not only is he a Cy Young winner, but Rick Porcello has also taken up some charitable endeavors.

Thanksgiving Leftovers: Muddy Chicken Is Fastest Glove

While you're deciding whether to re-heat that slab of Thanksgiving bird or turn it into turkey chili, we have some 'leftovers' of our own. Deep into an inactive off-season, MLB decided to name the 2016 All-Statcast™ team. Not surprisingly, Dustin Pedroia is slotted in at second base as "The Fastest Glove In The East"—combining a comeback offensive season with his signature stellar defense. A couple of other Carmine Hosers got honorable mentions—Jackie Bradley, Jr. in CF and Rick Porcello at pitcher. Oddly, MVP runner-up Mookie Betts wasn't even mentioned. A former Red Sox player did win...

Today’s links look at what we can learn from the MVP finalists, what the weak free agent class means for Clay Buchholz, and a possible trade match between Boston and Detroit. What can we learn from the AL’s MVP finalists in 2016? (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) Mookie Betts is one of those finalists, and the scary thing for the rest of the league is that he can get even better. (Matthew Kory; BP Boston) Rick Porcello, meanwhile, took home the Cy Young but he won’t parlay that into a World Baseball Classic appearance.

Rick Porcello has good explanation why he doesn’t plan on pitching in World Baseball Classic

There is little doubt Rick Porcello would get an invitation to pitch in the World Baseball Classic. When you win the American League Cy Young, as the Red Sox pitcher just did, it is only natural your services would be in demand. But according to Porcello, he will be politely declining the opportunity. Speaking on […]

Separating Rick Porcello from Jim Lonborg

The way the world reacted to Rick Porcello’s Cy Young win, you’d think it was 1967. Last night, when Rick Porcello was named the winner of the American League Cy Young Award, the reaction was less than enthusiastic from those outside of the Boston area. Even ignoring the ranting of Justin Verlander’s wife, Kate Upton, there was some sense that this was a robbery. A triumph of The Almighty Win over the righteous forces of statistics and strikeouts. Nearly 50 years ago, Jim Lonborg became the first Red Sox pitcher to win the Cy Young Award. Like Porcello, Lonborg led the league with 22...
