Red Sox 1, Indians 3: It ends

The end of the season, and the end of a different sort of era. The Red Sox season has come to a close. Appropriately enough, with a four-game losing streak after a 3-1 defeat in Cleveland. So that's that. The game? Does it really much matter? Rick Porcello pitched well, which is nice. Another indication that he'll be ready to contribute in 2016 in much the way he did not in 2016. But even that is just a little more data in a too-long number-filled season. At the end of the day, 78-84 is not so different from 79-83, or 80-82. 81-81 would have been nice, but it was not to be. I don't really...

Fittingly, Sox Lose The Final Game Of A Dismal Season

(AP Photo)It's hard to believe that the 2015 Carmine Hose were 7-3 after the first ten games of this season. On April 4th, they opened the year on the road and Clay Buchholz beat Cole Hamels 8-0 in Philly. They finished the year today with Rick Porcello losing to 3-1 to Danny Salazar in Cleveland. A lot happened in between, but the inescapable conclusion is that—with just 78 wins—this was another horrific year. Three of the last four seasons, the Red Sox have finished in last place. That's an indictment on the entire organization—owners, management, and players. It is an unacceptable...

Daily Red Sox Links: Xander Bogaerts, Rick Porcello, David Ortiz

Today's links look at the managerial situation, some much-needed Giancarlo Stanton talk, and more news from the NESN booth. There's not much more to say about how impressive Xander Bogaerts and Mookie Betts have been this year. Now, will the Red Sox take the next step and sign them to extensions? (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) How confident should you be in Rick Porcello looking forward to next year? (Rob Bradford; WEEI.com) As long as he's healthy and able, John Farrell will be back in the dugout in 2016. (Sean McAdam; CSN New England) Is that the right decision? (Alex Skillin; BP...

Evil Ones Can't Figure Out Rotation Against Red Sox

Evil Ones Can't Figure Out Rotation Against Red Sox

The Pinstriped Posers face four pretty important games this week against the Red Sox. After all, they're just 4.5 games ahead in the Wild Card race and only four games out of the division lead. And yet, they have no clue who will start games 2-4 against The Carmine Hose. Tonight the wildly inconsistent Ivan Nova gets the nod against an Eduardo Rodriguez—who has been very effective in his The Bronx Embalmer starts. Boston will start Rick Porcello Tuesday, Wade Miley Wednesday and Rich "Cy" Hill on Thursday. Empire Manager Joe Girardi's problem is the unclear health status of Masahiro...

Rick Porcello pitches decent in Boston's loss

BOSTON — The result may not have been in his favor, but Boston's Rick Porcello is saving a lost season with some quality starts in the final weeks.Porcello held the Tampa Bay to just run over the first seven innings before the Rays added on against Boston's bullpen for a 6-2 win over the Red Sox on Wednesday night."I've been happy with the way it's been going since I got off the disabled list," Porcello said "I feel like I've done well since I came off the DL."

Wednesday’s Red Sox-Rays matchups: Rick Porcello vs. Drew Smyly

Rick Porcello’s hat is going wire to wire this season (and it shows)

As far as hats go, Rick Porcello’s lid may be the most unique since Trot Nixon‘s chapeau. (Click here for more on Nixon’s cap.) Porcello hasn’t changed up his hat at any point this season — a practice usually incorporated by big leaguers — leaving the piece of his uniform in a less-than-pristine state. “If […]

Porcello Reverts Back To Old Form, Red Sox Lose, 6-1

(The Canadian Press via AP)SkyDome (never to be referred to as RogersCentre) has always been a House Of Horrors for Rick Porcello. Before last night, his career ERA there was 7.36. In six innings on Friday, he gave up six runs (five earned runs) on eight hits. Boston could only manage a lone run—which scored on a controversial infield hit in the 6-1 loss. Not exactly Murders' Row. Mookie Betts did get two more hits—raising his average to .290. He also now has 36 doubles on the year. Well, at least The Evil Ones lost as well—pushing the Blue Jay lead in the AL East to 4.5 games. Your...

Red Sox notebook: Team has sinking feeling in loss to Blue Jays

TORONTO — Leave it to Rogers Centre to cool off Rick Porcello.Having made the anticipated switch back to being a sinkerballer, Porcello had been throwing as well as he has all season, entering last night’s start against the Blue Jays with a 2.15 ERA and 30 strikeouts in his last 291⁄3 innings.But the Great White North has never been friendly to Porcello, who got whacked around, allowing six runs (five earned) over six innings in the Red Sox’ 6-1 loss to the Blue Jays.

Red Sox 1, Blue Jays 6: Not according to plan

The Red Sox helped the Jays gain ground on the Yankees Friday night. Which is about the only silver lining to be found. The Red Sox fell to the Blue Jays Friday night 6-1 in what proved a rough game for Rick Porcello. Alright, so the Red Sox lost. They did not play spoiler in favor of the Yankees which, depending on who you ask, was the goal. Or, at least, one of them. To revisit the agenda we set earlier: Rick Porcello being as good as he has been since returning to action. Jackie Bradley Jr. remembering how to hit. (And, seriously, where's that day off?) Everyone else who will play in...

Rick Porcello struggles, Jackie Bradley Jr. hitless again as Boston Red Sox lose to Toronto Blue Jays

Porcello won both his starts against the Blue Jays at Fenway Park this year, allowing just one earned run in 7 innings April 29 and three earned runs in 7 1/3 innings earlier this month. But it's been a completely different story for him in Toronto.
