Feds Clear Moncada To Sign With Any Club

(ObstructedView.Net Photo)The US Government has cleared Cuban phenom Yoan Moncada to sign with any MLB team. The U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) says Moncada may now be "generally licensed as an unblocked national". The Red Sox and several other clubs have held private workouts with Moncada—who is expected to benefit from a bidding war that will net the 19-year old upwards of $80 million. The Red Sox exceeded their allotted bonus pool, so they would be penalized for signing Moncada. The penalty is a 100 percent tax on their excess pool payments and...

Red Sox should wait it out with Allen Craig

Red Sox should wait it out with Allen Craig

No offense to Ryan Hanigan, who could supply minimal offense and still be a good backup catcher, but the Red Sox sold low on Will Middlebrooks last month and they know it.It would be foolish to do the same with Allen Craig.Look, we know 91 losses and a last-place finish last season make 2013 seem like eons ago. But you don’t need Doc Brown to fire up the flux capacitor to recall when Craig was the best clutch hitter in the National League, to say nothing of the Cardinals hitter the Sox were most concerned with facing in the World Series.

Bogaerts in shape for strong season

MASHANTUCKET, Conn. -- Things rarely came easy for Boston Red Sox phenom Xander Bogaerts in his first full year at the major league level last season. And yet, the team’s faith in him never faltered. Through all the ups and downs -- the hot start at the plate, the massive slump from June to August that coincided with a shift from shortstop to third base, the strong finish to the season after once again settling in at short -- the team never suggested it was considering the idea of sending Bogaerts back to the minors.

The Red Sox announced Tuesday night that they have traded Anthony Ranaudo for lefty reliever Robbie Ross. Why Ross? While the 25-year-old is a lefty, his strength may be getting right-handed hitters out, a quality the Red Sox have been looking to add to their bullpen. Ross doesn’t possess a traditional lefty-on-lefty breaking ball, but […]
