Can the Red Sox bounce back after their blip and win the World Series this year?

The Boston Red Sox have endured a fairly inconsistent season so far but still more or less remain in control of their own destiny in the American League East. John Farrell’s men have won 42 of their 78 fixtures this season, a decent record considering how improved their division is. However, things are far from peachy in Boston right now. The Red Sox have lost seven of their last...

REPORT: Red Sox to face heavy penalties for international signings

According to a report from Ben Badler of Baseball America on Thursday, Major League Baseball could be penalizing the Boston Red Sox sometime in the near future as a result of the club’s 2015 international signing blunders. Badler made a point to note that the league could come down hard on the heralded franchise before the 2016 international signing period officially opens on Saturday...

Firing John Farrell may not be the end-all turnaround the Red Sox need, but it’s a start

COMMENTARY If I’m Dave Dombrowski, I don’t fire John Farrell. Not today. I would remove myself from the immediate hysteria that followed the Red Sox’ 4-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday afternoon, and try to reason with the embarrassing pom-pom that the Red Sox manager has become. I would meet with Farrell on […] The post Firing John Farrell may not be the end-all turnaround...

Ask BP Boston: What Flaws Can the Red Sox Fix?

The Red Sox, as you might have heard, have a few holes to fill on their roster. They could use an everyday left fielder. They need a better bench. They could use some relief help, thanks to the Carson Smith injury. And they really, really need starting pitching. Dear god do they need starting pitching. There’s been a bit of a notion as of late that the Red Sox are a doomed team...

Bogaerts has left no doubt he belongs at Midsummer Classic

Xander Bogaerts could have -- and maybe should have -- been an All-Star last year. But the Red Sox didn't perform well as a team, and there are snubs every year.

Heyman: Don’t consider Red Sox prospects completely untouchable

The Red Sox are desperate to add a starter, and pretty needy for a reliever, too. Marlins superstar Jose Fernandez is thought to be the one guy they’d back up the truck for, but two Marlins people continue to insist there’s no way he’s going anywhere (makes sense since the Marlins are every bit in the race as the Red Sox are). They’ve called about Gray before, and Red Sox...

The Trials and Tribulations of Travis Shaw

Through Wednesday’s action, the Red Sox are 42-36 and would host the Wild Card game if the season ended today. Of course, the season doesn’t end today, and things look bleak if you’re following this team on a day-to-day basis. Despite a recent downturn, the offense has hardly been to blame. It’s been frustrating at times, but it’s still the best in the game in terms of...

Was That the End of Eduardo Rodriguez?

Despite receiving an inspiring performance thus far from their knuckleballer, the Boston Red Sox rotation has been a disaster. Their big offseason acquisition has flopped in his first half-season, and Buchholz’s last stand is not going as planned. Dave McCullough wonders if we also saw the end of Eduardo Rodriguez in the rotation when he imploded in Texas. Like most Red Sox fans...

Ortiz won't participate in Home Run Derby at All-Star Game

Picture this: David Ortiz makes his triumphant return the Home Run Derby at Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game and takes home the crown in his final big-league season. It’s a nice story, but it won’t happen, according to Ortiz. The Boston Red Sox slugger said before Tuesday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays he won’t be participating in the Home Run Derby on July 11...

Porcello gets 9th win, Red Sox beat Rays to stop 3-game skid

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Rick Porcello pitched six strong innings, Travis Shaw homered and drove in five runs for the third time this season and the Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 8-2 on Tuesday night to end a three-game losing streak. Porcello (9-2) retired the last nine batters he faced after giving up a bases-loaded walk to Nick Franklin in the fourth. That was the...

The Mike Miller Era Is Set To Begin At Fenway---HUH?

Mike MillerThe Red Sox have made the somewhat baffling move of promoting infielder Mike Miller from AAA Pawtucket to the 40-man roster. In a corresponding move, they sent recently-promoted pitcher William Cuevas back down to Rhode Island. This kind of makes sense in a convoluted sort of way, since infielder Deven Marrero was sent down to bring up Cuevas. Got it? Neither do we! Miller...

Three Crucial Trade Options for the Boston Red Sox

Rafael Devers, the current #3 Red Sox prospect and potential trade target, while playing for the Greenville Drive (A) in 2016. Since finishing the month of May at 32-20, the Boston Red Sox have begun to leak oil, going 9-14 in the month of June, and dropping to four games behind the first place Baltimore Orioles while holding on to a lead in the Wild Card race. Now as Dave Dombrowski...

Boston Red Sox Should Trade For Matt Garza

The Boston Red Sox are in trouble. They can’t just keep pedaling Clay Buchholz out to the mound every fifth day and cross their fingers. Boston dropped two of three in Texas after losing three out of four at home against Chicago. Their bench is weak due to injuries, especially in left field. The bullpen is a question mark at best and outside of their first three starters, the...

Bryce Brentz Making Most Of Opportunity With Red Sox Since Being Called Up

One of the Boston Red Sox’s two runs Sunday came from an unlikely source. Right fielder Bryce Brentz, who has played three games since being called up from Triple-A Pawtucket, launched his first major league home run in the sixth inning of Boston’s 6-2 loss to the Texas Rangers. He now has four hits in 11 at-bats since being recalled. Hear Brentz talk about his time with Boston...

Time for Red Sox to send Carl Willis packing

Red Sox Counting On Clay Buchholz To Take Load Off Bullpen In Key Start

The Boston Red Sox need Clay Buchholz to step up to the challenge Sunday. The right-hander will take the mound for the team’s series finale against the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Park, and with Boston’s bullpen getting heavy use in the previous two games, manager John Farrell is counting on Buchholz to work “as deep as he can” into Sunday’s outing. “We’re going to...

Red Sox Make Insane Comeback, Starring Mookie, Koji and Mighty Sandy

Honestly, after watching the Red Sox drop three of four to the White Sox and half-ass their way through their recent homestand, my expectations for this road series hung lower than a dog’s balls. And after David Price coughed up 12 hits and 6 runs to the Rangers in just 2.1 innings, I figured it was as good a night as any to turn off the game and work on my collection of Mike...

Red Sox OF Young's hamstring injury not as bad as feared

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Red Sox left fielder Chris Young is sore and on the disabled list because of a strained right hamstring, but manager John Farrell said Friday that the injury isn't as bad as the team initially feared. Young pulled up grabbing his leg after rounding first base in the second inning of Boston's win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday. He had to be helped...

Xander Bogaerts Learns It’s Tough Out There for a Winner

Poor Xander Bogaerts. The X Man was about the only living highlight from this sit-flat 4-6 homestand, and his tenth-inning single in today’s game helped the Sox retain a bit of pride as they headed out to Texas. Unfortunately, as Xander learned, success comes not without a price. As soon as he completed his jaunt down to first, Xander was pelted with a cup of flour, apparently...

This might’ve been the worst one, too.  The Red Sox beat the White Sox, 8-7, on a walkoff win in the 10th inning. Following the win, Austin interviewed the man responsible for the...

Hanley Ramirez Has a Message for his Critics

Hanley Ramirez’s bat has been missing like the lost ark for some time now. So when he belted a line drive home run off Jose Quintana in the sixth inning of tonight’s game — a game we eventually lost — it seemed like a good thing. But Hanley wasn’t done. Upon returning to the dugout, he hijacked the NESN cameras, offering a bit of performance art that I could only interpret...
