RED SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Big Papi crushes Syndergaard pitch for 494th homer

Noah Syndergaard went 5 2/3 innings without allowing a run Sunday afternoon. That changed in a hurry when David Ortiz stepped to the plate. Ortiz sent a 97-mph Syndergaard fastball screaming off the second deck at Citi Field for a two-run homer. The home run was the 494th of Ortiz’s career. He now sits all alone in 27th on the all-time home runs list and needs six over the...

Terry Collins didn't challenge double out of fear of HR

New York Mets manager Terry Collins decided against challenging David Ortiz’s pinch-hit, ninth-inning double Saturday. Why? Because giving up a double is better than giving up a home run. Collins told reporters Sunday in New York, via ESPN.com, that he was unsure whether Ortiz’s wall-ball two-bagger — which came during a 3-1 win for the Boston Red Sox — actually cleared...

In a Lost Season, the Red Sox Still Have Me Punching Walls

Now wait, before you judge: punching walls is a good thing. At least as I see it. Sure, the wall hates it and the noise gives the neighbors even more fodder for their eventual lawsuit against me. But if the Boston Red Sox, owners of the worst record in the American League, can still inspire me to bouts of screaming, drinking and wall-sparring, then they’re doing something right...

Hanley Ramirez Scratched From Tonight's Sox Lineup

At the last minute, Hanley Ramirez was scratched from the Red Sox lineup tonight in Flushing. The party line is that it's 'shoulder fatigue'—but could it be an August waiver deadline deal? Stay tuned! In the meantime, here is the full Boston lineup: Mookie Betts CF, Pablo Sandoval 3B, Xander Bogaerts SS, David Ortiz 1B, Brock Holt 2B, Rusney Castillo RF, Blake Swihart C, Jackie...

Finding signs of life for the Boston Red Sox

Are the Boston Red Sox contenders this year? (waiting for you to stop laughing) Okay, now that you’ve gotten that out of your system: have you noticed that the Red Sox haven’t been terrible lately? And that as things stand currently, they’re only 7.5 games out of a Wild Card spot? Could they actually make a run in September and get back to the postseason? In a word: no...

The Red Sox should trade Blake Swihart, Travis Shaw and Jackie Bradley Jr this offseason...or not

Scott Levesque Twitter: @mendoza_linesI've compared the 2015 Red Sox to having tiny pieces of bamboo shoved down my fingernails - it's painful. Yet, the Red Sox have a lingering question that continues to hover over the organization as they finish out another last place season:What will the Red Sox do with their young talent?More specifically, will the Red Sox keep Travis Shaw...

Porcello Gets Win in Return to the Mound

Rick Porcello was actively off the disabled list and the first team he had to face was the same one that shelled him in his last MLB start.  Porcello would have no easy task either as he was up against ace Chris Sale.  Both starting pitchers did their jobs and kept the offense off the scoreboard, but the win would go to Porcello when the Red Sox offense got to the White Sox bullpen...

AA Classic: Don Orsillo, Jerry Remy, and the pizza incident

Don Orsillo is being removed from Red Sox broadcasts on NESN, and we’ve already outlined how upset Red Sox fans are. With that being said, we thought it would be appropriate to remember one of the more absurd sequences in the history of the Orsillo/Jerry Remy partnership. Here’s the entire “here comes the pizza” affair, during which Orsillo and Remy hilariously broke down...

David Ortiz: 'It sucks' Hanley Ramirez has been criticized

David Ortiz thinks everyone should lay off Hanley Ramirez. Ramirez has been criticized time and again this season for his shoddy defense in left field. He’s now embracing a potential transition to first base with open arms, and Ortiz, who worked with Ramirez during pregame drills earlier this week, isn’t surprised by the veteran’s team-first mentality. “Hanley has a good...

Wade Miley Can’t Get the Win for the Red Sox

The Red Sox hoped to get two wins in a row against the White Sox.  They had Wade Miley on the mound and while he had a lead for part of the game, he wasn’t able to hold onto it when he gave the lead back to the White Sox in the bottom of the 7th. The White Sox scored first last night and when all was said and done they would score last.  The White Sox scored a single run in the...

Hanley Ramirez is moving to first base for the Red Sox

Boston isn’t punting on Hanley Ramirez quite yet. In fact, the Red Sox intend to change Ramirez’s position in 2016 (after changing it from shortstop to left field in 2015), and will shift him to first base. Hanley IS moving to first base by next year, he said. Maybe some this year. He's on board. "I'm looking forward to it." — Michael Silverman (@MikeSilvermanBB) August 25...

NESN replaces Don Orsillo with Dave O’Brien in Red Sox booth

NESN shocked the baseball world today when reports made the rounds that the network would be replacing very popular play by play man Don Orsillo on Red Sox telecasts next season.  Those reports were confirmed this evening when NESN announced that ESPN veteran and current Red Sox radio announcer Dave O’Brien would be taking over the television duties in 2016.

Junichi Tazawa- Not a Closer

“It’s a learning experience for (Tazawa)—-he’s going to be better off for this moment”, Red Sox interim manager Tony Lovullo was quoted as saying . I can’t agree. Sunday’s implosion against Kansas City made his record 2-6 with a 3.74 ERA (high for a relief pitcher). His WHIP has risen to 1.128. Amazingly, he has blown 6 saves out of 8 chances. Who can replace...

Don Orsillo Out at NESN, Red Sox Ownership Continues to Step On Our Nuts

As this season continues to circle the bowl, waiting for inevitable early-October flush, all of Red Sox Nation is in agreement that change is needed, and very likely coming before the region’s first snow. But the first salvo of that change has proven to be straight out of left field: NESN has opted to not renew Don Orsillo’s contract after this season. Meaning DO will no longer...

Red Sox TV voice Don Orsillo is being let go by NESN

Red Sox fans have been accustomed to having Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy call games on NESN since 2001. Fans will have barely over a month to cherish them as they’ll be parting ways at the end of the season. Orsillo is being let go by NESN and will be replaced by radio voice Dave O’Brien who also calls games for ESPN. The news was first reported by WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan...

Pablo Sandoval and the World’s Unluckiest Tarp

Lots of great things came out of last night’s 5-4 Red Sox win over the White Sox. Joe Kelly turned in his fifth straight quality start and Rusney Castillo went an impressive 3-for-4, knocking in all 5 of the Red Sox’ runs. But for me, the game’s most memorable image came when Pablo Sandoval dropped a twenty-megaton belly flop on a tarp along the third base side while snaring...

'Vanillas In The Mist', Red Sox Lose Two Leads, Fall, 8-6

(Getty Images)It was a rainy, extremely wacky loss at Fenway Park today. Up by two runs in the ninth, the Red Sox pulled off one of the oddest plays in years—turning a misplayed wall triple into an inside-the-park-out-at home. That was the first out. Then Junichi Tazawa pitched like he was in the Little League World Series, giving up four earned runs on six hits. Lead gone, Sox...

Matt Barnes Shelled Again, Red Sox Fall to KC, 6-3

(Getty Images)Matt Barnes is young guy who throws hard. Unfortunately, he's become one-dimensional in his recent MLB stint with the Red Sox. Major league hitters can handle that—and have in Barnes' last two starts. As a result—after yesterday's 6-3 loss—Barnes was sent back down to AAA Pawtucket. Boston's offense made a game of it, with Mookie Betts (solo HR) and Xander Bogaerts...

On Wednesday, the Boston Red Sox officially announced Dave Dombrowski as their new team president. It was a rather stunning move, if for no other reason than its timing. Dombrowski was rumored to be considered for other opportunities throughout MLB and Boston already had a general manager in Ben Cherington. But owner John Henry saw the chance to bring in a more proven commodity...
