Replacing the workload of Craig Kimbrel and Joe Kelly will not be easy

Replacing the workload of Craig Kimbrel and Joe Kelly will not be easy

Obviously quality matters, but the Red Sox will have a hard enough time just replacing the innings. I think it’s about time that I just start copying/pasting the same paragraph to the top of pretty much every post that goes up these days, because they all have the same topic. This is only, like, 30 percent joke, too. Do not be surprised to read these words again this week. Obviously, I’m talking about the Red Sox bullpen, which is the only topic of conversation around this team since, oh, the first week of December after they brought back Nathan Eovaldi. In a way, it’s not such a bad...

Red Sox in discussions with Shawn Kelley, among others

Other teams are always talking with the righty We’ve been waiting for something, anything, about the Red Sox in free agency pursuing help in the bullpen. We all have different opinions about who or at least what kind of reliever they should be targeting, but the list of potential targets has been shrinking by the day. One by one, the top couple of tiers of the reliever market has dwindled to the point where only Craig Kimbrel remains, and the Red Sox remain steadfast that they are not going to spend that much money on a closer. If not him, then who? We may have a better idea now....

The Patriots dynasty has affected being a Red Sox fan

Even if you don’t like football, there’s an undeniable link between the two teams. In case you were unaware, today is a pretty big day in the world of football. It is Conference Championship Day in the NFL, which in recent history means it’s also a big day for Boston sports. Once again, the Patriots are in the AFC Championship Game, putting them one win away from the Super Bowl and two wins away from yet another title. I don’t follow football closely enough to have takes worth pretending are insightful, so don’t worry this isn’t going to be about what the Patriots need to do on...

Where can the Boston Red Sox trim payroll to make additions?

While the team has been more discreet in explaining their choices to not pursue certain free agents, are they really out of payroll space? The Boston Red Sox are looking at a very questionable bullpen heading into 2019, and as multiple bullpen pieces have signed elsewhere, a common refrain from the front office has been […] Where can the Boston Red Sox trim payroll to make additions? - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
