Red Sox Still Need To Make Move For Cole Hamels

Three weeks into the season, and the 2015 Boston Red Sox sit just one game over the .500 mark. The team has come as advertised however, as the offense has put a ton of runs across the board and the pitching has been mediocre at best. Boston’s rotation remains ace-less and it is apparent now more than ever the team needs a horse to take the ball every fifth day, assuring Manager...

Evaluating the Boston Red Sox Thus Far

Dustin Pedroia & Xander Bogaerts take the field for the new-look Boston Red Sox in 2015. The Boston Red Sox have started off the 2015 regular season campaign quite strong in comparison to previous years. They have yet to lose more than two games in a row, and have shown toughness, grit, and spark that was lacking in 2014. Even though it may seem like an issue that the Red Sox...

Rays Walk Off, Sox Lose First Series of the Season

The Red Sox came into this game hoping for a win in order to not have their first lost series of 2015.  The Sox had Clay Buchholz on the mound vs. Jake Odorizzi for the Rays.  Buchholz has been his usual inconsistent self this season, so fans wondered which version of Clay would take the mound.  Buchholz pitched well, but without any run support he was unable to get himself or...

Hanley and Manny Ramirez are Miami neighbors

People often emulate those around them. Perhaps that would explain why Red Sox outfielder Hanley Ramirez sometimes looks like former Boston slugger Manny Ramirez. Believe it or not, Hanley and Manny, who aren’t related, are next-door neighbors in Miami, Fla., according to WEEI.com’s Rob Bradford. Hanley hasn’t used the unique living arrangement to pick Manny’s brain about...

Science says Mookie Betts is a superhero

Scott LevesqueTwitter: @SomeComicReliefMookie Betts was not bit by a radioactive spider. He's not from a distant galaxy where the planet was destroyed due to overuse of its natural resources. No, Betts is the best kind of superhero. He's the people's superhero.Seemingly unassuming, Mookie flashes his superpowers when the Red Sox (and their fans) need him the most. Don't believe...

Koji Uehara’s Extreme Splitter Usage

As noted in Sunday’s column, Koji Uehara has thrown 24 pitches this season, and 21 of them have been splitters. Even for a two-game sample, that’s pretty extreme. Only one other pitcher – Red Sox teammate Edward Mujica (57.6%) – has thrown a splitter with more than 50% frequency in the early going. Last year’s […]

Sox Beat O’s and Split Series in Rain Shortened Game

The Red Sox have the 11:00am start on Marathon Monday, so players on both teams probably showed up exhausted to the ballpark.  The Sox had Justin Masterson on the mound vs. Wei-Yin Chen for the O’s.  Not only was it an early start, but it was a rainy, windy, cold day out at the park.  The Sox were able to battle through behind Masterson’s strong start and breeze to the win...

Boston Red Sox: Early Rotation Concerns

Many were curious as to how the Boston Red Sox would perform this year after having a rough season last year. Seems like they are doing pretty good considering everything that they have gone through from getting new coaches, new players, and being doubted by many.

Hanley Ramirez had an eventful day on Friday. During batting practice before the Red Sox-Orioles game at Fenway, he hit a line drive so hard that it cracked a pad on the center field section of the Green Monster. He also wore the wrong red jersey before the game started. The oddities didn’t exactly translate to a great performance on the field, however – Ramirez went 0/3 with...
