Sale Nabs Tenth Win, Red Sox Top Twinkies, 4-1

Sale Nabs Tenth Win, Red Sox Top Twinkies, 4-1

(AP Photo)Chris Sale was—once again—the guy they traded for. The lanky lefty went 6.1 innings, striking out nine and giving up one earned run. His teammates scored enough to provide victory—with Mitch Moreland swatting his third straight first-at-bat home run in the 4-1 win. Dustin Pedroia had two hits and drove in a key insurance run late, while Mookie Betts was 2-4 and scored two. The over-worked bullpen was solid again, going 2.2 innings and blanking the Twins without giving up a single hit. Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 21st save—lowering his ERA to 1.07.

Sox To Sign 16-Year Old Venezuelan Catching Phenom

Sox To Sign 16-Year Old Venezuelan Catching Phenom

(Photo by @BostonStrong_34)According to Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com, the Red Sox will soon sign top Venezuelan catching prospect Daniel Flores. The 16-year-old phenom (already 6'1", 200 pounds) is said to have elite "catch-and-throw" skills—as well as serious power possibilities. The current Red Sox farm organization is light on catching, so this deal (which is said to be $3.3 million) will help boost long-range quality behind the plate.

Red Sox One Of Four Teams Interested In Sonny Gray

Red Sox One Of Four Teams Interested In Sonny Gray

()According to Jeff Passan of YahooSports, the Red Sox are one of four teams in on a possible trade for right-handed starter Sonny Gray of the Oakland A's. Just yesterday, Gray stymied the White Sox on four hits, giving up just one earned run over seven innings. The other clubs contending for Gray are The Evil Ones, Astros and the World Series Champion Cubs. Despite yesterday's promising start by Doug Fister, it's prudent that Boston stock up on as many veteran starters as possible—given potential health concerns with both David Price (elbow, fingernail) and Eduardo Rodriguez (knee), not to...

Fister Decent In Debut, Bats Fall Silent In 4-2 Sox Loss

Fister Decent In Debut, Bats Fall Silent In 4-2 Sox Loss

(AP Photo)Doug Fister probably would have had his first Red Sox win if a second-inning double-play weren't called back on review. As it was, three runs scored after the changed call, and Boston's offense limped to a 4-2 loss to the Angels. Solo home runs by Mitch Moreland and Jackie Bradley, Jr. were the only real offensive moments in the game—as Fister went 6.2 innings for the loss. Boston stayed in a virtual tie for first place in the AL East thanks to the tenth loss in the last twelve games by The Bronx Embalmers.

The Nation Wishes RemDawg The Best On Monday Surgery

The Nation Wishes RemDawg The Best On Monday Surgery

Remy And E-I-C At Sox Fantasy Camp (1992)Red Sox fans around the world are wishing team legend and broadcaster Jerry Remy the very best on his Monday surgery. The RemDawg will undergo another procedure tomorrow to deal with his recurring lung cancer. Your Editor-In-Chief had the honor of having Remy as his manager at Red Sox Fantasy Camp in Winter Haven, Florida way back in 1992. In batting practice, Jerry consistently struck me out with a 'down-and-in' breaking ball. As he told me every morning, "OK, I know exactly how to get this lefty out". And he did. Get back in the booth soon, Jerry!

Red Sox Power-Up On Halos, Stay In First, 9-4

Red Sox Power-Up On Halos, Stay In First, 9-4

A pair of two-run home runs helped propel the Red Sox to a 9-4 win over the Anaheim/Orange County/California/United States/North America/Earth/Milky Way Angels. Both Hanley Ramirez and Sandy Leon went yard in the victory—which kept The Carmine Hose in first-place in the AL East. Rick Porcello was atypically good until the seventh inning, when he reverted to the 'Ugly Ricky' we've seen in most of 2017. Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley, Jr. also had multiple-hit games in the win—as Boston pounded out ten hits to sail to victory. Thanks to a completely lucky extra-innings win by The Bronx...

Coming Soon: Pee-Wee's Big Laser Show Adventure?

Coming Soon: Pee-Wee's Big Laser Show Adventure?

The Laser Show PerformsAt the roast for David Ortiz last night (which the puritanical NESN will not air due to "profanities"), Dustin Pedroia revealed that his long-time teammate didn't know his name was Dustin. In fact, he thought it was "Pee-Wee", literally. Of course, the reason Ortiz got the nickname "Papi" was because he called everyone "Papi"—since he couldn't remember their name. The Muddy Chicken's re-telling of the story is priceless—but you'll never see it on NESN. Here's the 'horrific' language that censor-happy NESN is 'protecting' you from:"The catcher comes up to me and...

Red Sox Set To Retire David Ortiz's Number 34 Tonight

Red Sox Set To Retire David Ortiz's Number 34 Tonight

Before tonight's game with the Anaheim Angels, the Red Sox will have a ceremony to unveil their newest retired number— the #34 of David Ortiz. Big Papi becomes just the tenth Red Sox player to be enshrined on the right field façade—joining Bobby Doerr (#1), Joe Cronin (#4), Johnny Pesky (#6), Carl Yastrzemski (#8), Ted Williams (#9), Jim Rice (#14), Wade Boggs (#26), Carlton Fisk (#27), and Pedro Martinez (#45). As in all MLB parks, the #42 is enshrined for the great Jackie Robinson. Yesterday, the City of Boston dedicated a new street near Fenway Park: David Ortiz Drive. How...

Could The Red Sox Solve Two Problems With One Trade?

Could The Red Sox Solve Two Problems With One Trade?

With the Royals playing a little better (just 3.5 games out of first), and Mike Moustakas having a solid season, Kansas City's urge to dump their soon-to-be free agent third-baseman might be dulled a bit. Enter the Pale Hose—who, despite being just seven games out—are mired in the AL Central cellar. Their soon-to-be free-agent third-baseman, Todd Frazier, has had a bit of a renaissance lately. Over the last 30 days or so, Frazier has clouted eight HRs and produced an .871 OPS. And, their so-far under-performing starter José Quintana is also available. So, the Red Sox might be able...

Mookie Betts Remains A Long-Shot For MLB ASG Start

Mookie Betts Remains A Long-Shot For MLB ASG Start

With little time left, Red Sox right-fielder Mookie Betts is pretty much out of the running for one of the three starting outfield spots on the American league All-Star team. As of Tuesday, Betts trails fourth-place holder Michael Brantley by 54,744 votes. With Mike Trout (the second-highest vote-getter) out of the running with an injury, the fourth spot is key. But, the chances are now very slim for having any starters in Carmine Hose at the Miami classic on July 11th.

Promotions Of Chavis And Devers Could Mean Other Moves

Promotions Of Chavis And Devers Could Mean Other Moves

Chavis (L); Devers (R)Multiple sources are reporting today that third-base prospect Michael Chavis has been promoted to AA Portland. Logically, this should lead to another quick promotion—moving the organization's other top third-base prospect Rafael Devers to AAA Pawtucket. And, yet a third move could be the dumping of ear-infected Pablo Sandoval and/or a trade for Kansas City's hot-corner star Mike Moustakas. Devers is Boston #1 overall prospect, while Chavis slots in at #7. Either one could be shipped west for Moustakas. Stay tuned!

Bullpen Meltdown Costs Sox First Place, Falll, 6-4

Bullpen Meltdown Costs Sox First Place, Falll, 6-4

(AP Photo)It had to happen sooner or later. The Red Sox bullpen, taxed mightily in the last few weeks, folded yesterday in a devastating 6-4 loss in Kansas City. Ahead 4-2 in the eighth inning—thanks to another solid performance by Drew Pomeranz—three walks (by relievers Matt Barnes and Robby Scott) led to a game-winning grand slam (coughed up by Scott). Poof! Game gone First place gone. Again, the offense mustered just five hits—including back-to-back solo HRs by Andrew Benintendi and Xander Bogaerts. A seven-game Fenway stint awaits—but lousy pitching doesn't get any better with...
