Red Sox 5, Indians 2: David Ortiz flirts with the cycle as Sox take series

David Ortiz was denied history by a bad bounce, but provided plenty of offense to lead the Red Sox past the Indians. The Red Sox took the rubber match in their series against the Indians Sunday afternoon on the back of a ridiculous day from David Ortiz and a reasonable-if-short start from Rick Porcello. The Red Sox scoring runs in the first is getting into the same territory as death and taxes these days. After getting Mookie Betts to ground out to start the inning, Salazar had a bit of a rough time. The next four Red Sox would all reach base against him, culminating in Hanley Ramirez a...

In the Red Sox-Indians series finale Sunday afternoon the Sox will send Rick Porcello to the hill to face Danny Salazar, one of baseball’s best pitchers so far this season. Porcello (6-2, 3.51 ERA, 1.09 WHIP) has surprised many with his performance this season. After his last time out, however, Sox fans were checking their […]

Sorting out the Red Sox luck, both good and bad

Welcome to Bury or Push: Red Sox edition We warned you. Just last week, we told you that some hack was going to start writing columns more concerned about column inches and word counts than cogent takes. That it’d be about inane, unknowable things, like whether or not the Red Sox heretofore historically historic hitting and/or maybe-mediocre-enough-to-win-a-World-Series pitching was sustainable. That they’d do it in a column so gimmicked out it barely recognizable as baseball writing when it’s done. I am that hack. But, with players like Rick Porcello and Jackie Bradley, Jr., who have...

Red Sox 4, Royals 8: Rick Porcello falters in Kansas City

It was a great run for Rick Porcello, but all good streaks must come to an end. After managing at least six innings in each start dating back to last July, Rick Porcello finally faltered Tuesday night in Kansas City, surrendering five runs in five innings as the Red Sox came up short in their first game against the Royals. It wasn't really clear this was coming at first. Porcello didn't show many signs of the struggles to come in the first two innings. A first-inning walk to Eric Hosmer was out of character, yes, but the first two frames saw Porcello looking like his usual reliable self,...

Closing Time: Royals tee off on Rick Porcello, mostly stifle Red Sox offense in victory

KANSAS CITY — The Red Sox may have designs on being a championship team, but the defending World Series winners reminded them on Tuesday night that the road to contention still passes through Missouri. Stifling the Red Sox offense outside of a Travis Shaw three-run homer, the Royals picked apart Sox starter Rick Porcello and […]

Trade market offers few short-term answers for Red Sox rotation

The Red Sox will need some rotation help before the season is over, but the trade market doesn't offer much in the rental category. The Red Sox rotation has fallen very much in "mixed bag" territory to start the season, as excellent starts from Steven Wright and Rick Porcello were offset by a rough beginning for David Price, Clay Buchholz doing his usual even-year song-and-dance, and a steady stream of awful from the fifth starter slot. Still, when Eduardo Rodriguez returns, assuming he does so looking at all like his old self, the Red Sox will be in pretty good shape. Granted, much of that...

Rick Porcello has some major problems with MLB’s approach to PED problem

Rick Porcello is not happy with how baseball is approaching its performance-enhancing drug issue. And the Red Sox pitcher isn’t hesitating in voicing his anger. So, is it realistic to expect any kind of change, particularly when the collective bargaining agreement expires at the end of this year? “It better be realistic because obviously what’s […]
