Xander Bogaerts’ plate discipline has him in the early-season MVP conversation

Xander Bogaerts’ plate discipline has him in the early-season MVP conversation

The Red Sox shortstop is proving he is a superstar Note: All numbers are through Monday’s action. Xander Bogaerts is currently getting a whole lot of love from Red Sox fans, and deservedly so. Given what he has done through the first two-and-a-half months of this season, there’s no such thing as too much love for Boston’s shortstop. Interestingly enough, it seems like he’s actually been a bit overshadowed for a lot of this year. While he has consistently been plugging away all year and producing from the start of the year to now, there has often been a guy outperforming him for...

The Red Sox need to be better against left-handed pitching

The Red Sox need to be better against left-handed pitching

Three guys specifically are holding them back. The Red Sox offense has been extremely frustrating this year, as we all know at this point. That’s not the same as saying they’ve been bad, of course, because by the numbers they haven’t been. They are fourth in baseball in terms of runs scored and eighth in the game by wRC+. It seems hard to complain about that, and yet when you watch the games it often seems hard not to complain about them. Granted, they have been better recently and they do have guys like Xander Bogaerts and Rafael Devers, among others, who are putting up...

Thoughts on a 4-3 Rangers loss

Thoughts on a 4-3 Rangers loss

Red Sox 4, Rangers 3 Red Sox 4, Rangers 3 Well, a sweep of a four game set in Boston would have been a lot to ask. Lance Lynn did Lance Lynn things today, registering a Quality Start by going 6 innings and allowing 3 runs. Lynn had 8 Ks against 1 walk, lowered his ERA to 4.40, and continued to make his 3 year, $30 million contract signed this offseason look like a pretty savvy move by the Rangers. Brett Martin had a solid 7th inning in relief of Lynn before getting in trouble in the 8th, allowing a two out Rafael Devers double, prompting an intentional walk to Xander Bogaerts, bringing...

Daily Red Sox Links: Xander Bogaerts, Rafael Devers, Michael Chavis

In today’s links, we go around the horn and discuss the play from all over the infield. Playing shortstop is a difficult job and although this is nothing new to me, Xander Bogaerts is really good at it. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston) Perhaps this is just the beginning of a deluge of awards that Rafael Devers will win in his career. (Chris Cotillo; MassLive) Speaking of current and future award-winners, Michael Chavis still has everyone’s attention and that includes his opponents. (Marc Carig; The Athletic) ($$) One day Craig Kimbrel will sign. One day. (Gabby Guerard; WEEI) If you...
