John Farrell explains why Dustin Pedroia is hitting sixth

Coming into Friday, the only spot in the lineup Dustin Pedroia hadn’t hit was in the sixth spot. That changed in the Red Sox’ series opener against the Cubs. Red Sox manager John Farrell slotted Pedroia in at sixth in the batting order, with Xander Bogaerts heading back to the top of the lineup. Pedroia, […]

Pablo Sandoval to the 10-Day disabled list; Josh Rutledge activated

Another player down. The Red Sox were already having their infield depth tested, with Dustin Pedroia and Xander Bogaerts both on the active roster but with nagging injuries and Brock Holt on the disabled list with vertigo. Now, they have lost Pablo Sandoval for at least ten days. The third baseman is officially out with a knee sprain. The #RedSox today placed 3B Pablo Sandoval on the 10-day disabled list (retroactive to April 24) with a right knee sprain.— Boston Red Sox (@RedSox) April 25, 2017 As the tweet from the team’s official account notes, the stint is retroactive to April...

Is Marco Hernandez becoming another Brock Holt for Boston Red Sox? Could he become full-time 3B?

Is Marco Hernandez becoming another Brock Holt for Boston Red Sox? Could he become full-time 3B?

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez has filled in nicely so far when Dustin Pedroia, Xander Bogaerts and Pablo Sandoval have missed time because of injuries and other reasons.

Red Sox lineup: Xander Bogaerts out; Jackie Bradley Jr., Marco Hernandez in

The sight of Xander Bogaerts heading down to the X-ray room at Rogers Centre after Thursday’s Red Sox’ win probably was a sign he might not be in the lineup Friday in Baltimore. Bogaerts had seemingly injured his hand sliding into second base while trying to stretch his two-out single into a double in the […]

Bogaerts Is 'Day-To-Day' After Injuring Thumb In Slide

Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts is 'day-to-day' after injuring his left thumb on a slide into second base yesterday—after knocking in the go-ahead run in the 9th inning. After the game, he underwent tests on the thumb, but they were inconclusive enough that he may miss some time. Stay tuned.

Chris Sale Sues For Non-Support, Sox Win Anyway, 4-1

Chris Sale Sues For Non-Support, Sox Win Anyway, 4-1

(AP Photo)Someday, the Boston Red Sox will score runs for Chris Sale. That day has not yet arrived. The Boston lefty twirled eight shutout innings today—striking out thirteen Jays—and came away with a no decision. He was in line of the "W", as Xander Bogaerts delivered a clutch, two-out RBI single in the top of the ninth, putting Boston up, 1-0. Then, on his second pitch of the inning, "closer" Craig Kimbrel coughed up a game-tying HR. In the 10th, the heroics fell to Mookie Betts—who had previously struck out twice in the game. Betts ripped a two-out double down the left-filed line...

Appreciating Xander Bogaerts for who he is

Appreciating Xander Bogaerts for who he is

Trying to put aside my expectations and just appreciate the talent. Everyone knows the concept of two siblings who have vastly different personality types and in turn have two wildly varying sets of expectations put upon them by their parents. There’s the overachiever, who seems to do everything right and brings home high grades on a daily basis. Then, there’s the slacker. They get in trouble at every turn and bring home disappointing marks almost every day of school. All of this leads to one day in which both the overachiever and the slacker come home with a C+ and they get completely...
