Today’s links look at the lack of home runs from Boston’s lineup, the bullpen’s workload and the 1967 team’s legacy. In case you haven’t noticed, the Red Sox haven’t been hitting many home runs. They are okay with it. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) Of course, Xander Bogaerts had a pretty big home run on Wednesday. The shortstop seems to be turning things around. (Evan Drellich; CSN New England) Speaking of Bogaerts, his path to the majors gives the organization a blueprint for guys like Andrew Benintendi and Rafael Devers. (Chad Jennings; Boston Herald) It’s probably time to...

Red Sox 5, Cardinals 4: Mookie Betts gives the Sox another walkoff

Red Sox 5, Cardinals 4: Mookie Betts gives the Sox another walkoff

It is an enjoyable experience to watch this team. This team, my goodness. They never seem to make it easy, and this game was frustrating for a long time, but Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts came through in the ninth inning and that was enough for a victory. Before that, the game was marked by a poor inning from Eduardo Rodriguez that looked like enough to propel St. Louis to a victory. The offense was also frustrating for much of this game, but as has been the case so often this year they came through when it mattered most. This team is fun, you guys. This was a relatively big start for...

Today we look at Bogaerts’ slump, life without Price and E-Rod’s cutter. Xander Bogaerts had a big night on Tuesday, but he still needs to reverse the slump he’s been on more consistently. (Scott Lauber; ESPN) David Price is taking the steps toward recovery. (Meredith Perri; MassLive) However, could the Red Sox survive without him? It’s possible. (John Tomase; WEEI) It’s good news when the Red Sox play on Tuesday, as they are 15-2 on that day of the week this year. (Nick Cafardo; Boston Globe) Eduardo Rodriguez is now featuring a cutter, which has helped him get back to pitching...

Boston Red Sox: Xander Bogaerts has promising day at the plate

Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts has been in an extremely extended slump. During that time he’s shown little power and dropped his average, while drastically lowering his run production. A week ago he brought some hope for a turnaround, and he did the same thing on Tuesday. On August 8, Xander Bogaerts extended his hitting-streak to […] The post Boston Red Sox: Xander Bogaerts has promising day at the plate appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Boston Red Sox: Xander Bogaerts streak finally has a big day

Xander Bogaerts entered Tuesday with a seven-game hitting streak. Maybe you didn’t notice because the Boston Red Sox shortstop actually saw his average drop during that time. He fixed that with a big game on Tuesday though. Xander Bogaerts has been struggling since mid-June. If it wasn’t for such a hot start to the year, his numbers […] The post Boston Red Sox: Xander Bogaerts streak finally has a big day appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Sale Boston! Sox Expand Division Lead, Beat Rays, 2-0

Sale Boston! Sox Expand Division Lead, Beat Rays, 2-0

(AP Photo)One thing is for certain—never make Chris Sale upset. After his worst outing of the season, the Red Sox ace came out last night with one of his best—8 innings, 0 runs, 2 H, 13 Ks, 1 BB. It was an awesome display of just how good Sale can be in the 2-0 victory. The lanky lefty didn't need much run support, but got enough—mostly thanks to multiple hit performances from Eduardo Núñez (3H), Xander Bogaerts (3H), Andrew Benintendi (2H) and Jackie Bradley, Jr. (2H, RBI). Rafael Devers notched the other RBI. The key win increased Boston's division lead to four full games over The...

How sustainable is Eduardo Nuñez’ performance?

How sustainable is Eduardo Nuñez’ performance?

He’s not going to keep this up, but Note: This post was written before Tuesday’s game in Tampa Bay, a game in which Eduardo Nuñez went 3-5. The numbers below do not reflect that performance. After a month of July in which the bats completely fell asleep, the Red Sox lineup is finally starting to come around (Tuesday’s game notwithstanding). There are a bunch of reasons why this is the case, but there are two that I feel are the most important. The first is simply that they were never going to be this bad. The core of the lineup -- Andrew Benintendi, Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts,...

Red Sox vs. White Sox lineup: Newfound roster flexibility hard at work

Red Sox vs. White Sox lineup: Newfound roster flexibility hard at work

The White Sox counter with an acid trip of a starting nine. It’s madness. The Red Sox (61-49) look to make it three in a row over the White Sox (41-66) and five in a row overall when they meet tonight at Fenway Park (7:10 p.m., NESN). It’s Drew Pomeranz (3.46 ERA) against ace-turned-punching bag-slash-punchline James Shields (6.19 ERA), who stinks, hence the White Sox uniform. These men are not the stories. The first story is about Boston’s newfound roster flexibility, and John Farrell’s willingness to exercise it. Xander Bogaerts and Hanley Ramirez are out, with Eduardo Nunez...
