Photo by Jim Davis/The Boston Globe via By basing his desired career path on David Ortiz’s run with Boston, J.D. Martinez is speaking every Red Sox fan’s language. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston) A lot of the focus for the red Sox has been on the potential upside, and flaws, of their pitching staff. The outfield provides some questions as well, though. Dakota Randall dives into the Red Sox’s largely brand new unit.

Red Sox make Marwin Gonzalez signing official; designate Marcus Walden for assignment

Photo by Harrison Barden/MLB Photos via And for now, the 40-man situation is caught up. The latter portion of the Red Sox offseason has been fairly busy, even if none of the acquisitions were necessarily top-tier free agents. But along with the sheer number of transactions they’ve made, they’ve also made a habit of falling behind on actually making the deals official. Regularly deals have been reported to be done and then there’s been a multi-week gap before they are announced. To be clear, as long as the players don’t have an issue with this — and there’s...

Red Sox’s J.D. Martinez Believes It’s Time MLB Adopts Universal DH

J.D. Martinez wants Major League Baseball to give the people what they want.

2021 Red Sox Infield Outlook: Talent, Versatility, Prospects Fuel Optimism

Assuming (relatively) good health, we know what we’ll get this season from the left side of the Red Sox infield. The right side? That’s where things get really intriguing. Boston in 2020 got another excellent season from shortstop Xander Bogaerts, who hit .300 with 11 homers and 28 RBIs.

Alex Cora Effect: How 2021 Red Sox Will Look Different With Manager Back

Alex Cora is a lightning rod. If things go well in 2021, with the Red Sox returning to contention after a turbulent 2020, it very well could stem from the energy emanating from the manager’s officer. If Boston struggles, or even lingers in mediocrity, Cora undoubtedly will be struck with outside criticism, more so than […] The post Alex Cora Effect: How 2021 Red Sox Will Look Different With Manager Back appeared first on NESN.com.

Red Sox Top Prospect Voting: Aldo Ramirez is sneaking up on everyone

Aldo Ramirez | Kelly O’Connor The young righty is looking to make good on the recent helium. We are officially on a run of pitchers as we reach the halfway point in our community top prospect voting. The top portion of the top ten here in the Red Sox system was dominated by position players, but the bottom half has been all about the arms.
