The Red Sox Are Kings of the High Fastball

Having taken advantage of a recent Yankees slump, the Red Sox are tied for first in the American League East. Though one of the big conversations about the team was how it would respond to losing David Ortiz, the Sox so far have also gotten very little from David Price. They’ve gotten nothing from would-be shutdown relievers Carson Smith and Tyler Thornburg. On the pitching and...

I Don’t Know: Sussing Out the Red Sox Third Base Options

The Red Sox have a $197 million payroll. The plan at third base going into the season was Pablo Sandoval, backed up by Brock Holt, Marco Hernandez, and Rule 5 pick Josh Rutledge. However, Sandoval has washed up on the beach and begun to rot – he is back on the disabled list for the second time this year, and is likely to be released if he continues to stink both offensively and...

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...

Boston Red Sox trade rumors: Should they target Todd Frazier?

If anything is abundantly clear to Boston Red Sox fans through seventy-four games, it is that an upgrade is needed at the third base position if they are going to compete for a World Series title. This season acted as a final chance of sorts for Pablo Sandoval, but he hasn’t stayed healthy much and hasn’t performed when on the field. In only 32 games, Sandoval is hitting .212...

Another First For Andrew Benintendi

Andrew Benintendi had his first career walk off hit a week ago, and it was perfect. It was just like all the other positive things he does, which are also perfect.

Watch Hanley Ramirez fling his bat to celebrate meaningless single

When it comes to celebrating, Hanley Ramirez never holds back. Ramirez is a vocal clubhouse leader, and he does things to rally his own team, as well as get under his opponents’ skin. We have to assume the Royals weren’t thrilled when he hit a single in the eighth inning of Monday’s game, and did an epic bat flip as he milked it for all it was worth afterward. For what it...
