Clay Buchholz not worried about trade rumors

Clay Buchholz isn’t concerned about whether he’ll follow in the footsteps of Jon Lester, John Lackey and Jake Peavy, among others. Not every July rumor carries weight.

Are the Red Sox Buyers or Sellers This Year?

As of late, the Boston Red Sox seem to have found their groove. They are 6-4 in their last 10 games, and are winners in five of their last eight games. Up until June 18th, the Red Sox looked to be out of playoff contention, and definite sellers come the trade deadline. The idea of trading Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval, the team’s two big offseason signings, became a legitimate...

Alejandro De Aza — Minor move a major hit for Boston Red Sox

When the Boston Red Sox acquired Alejandro De Aza on June 3, no one really took notice. Boston was 24-30, which was good enough for last place in the American League East, and De Aza was batting .214 on the season with the Baltimore Orioles. This trade looked like nothing more than an irrelevant team picking up a depth player. Somebody didn’t tell De Aza this however. De Aza came...

Red Sox GM: 'Time to think about' team being sellers

Red Sox Could Still Win It All: A Totally Sober Guy Explains

There is no place that hope springs eternal with greater fervor or frequency than the mind of a Red Sox fan. Case in point: After watching them lose seven in a row and receive last rites, I took the recent series wins against Tampa Bay and Kansas City as a sign that these guys may not yet have played their best baseball. In fact, now that we’ve taken the first two in this series...

Should Alejandro De Aza Start Over Hanley Ramirez?

Alejandro De Aza has been a bright spot for the Boston Red Sox since joining the team in early June. Last July, when the Boston Red Sox acquired Yoenis Cespedes in a trade with the Oakland Athletics involving Jon Lester, I was excited about the slugger’s future here in Boston. But in the offseason, the Red Sox decided to sign free agent shortstop-turned left-fielder Hanley Ramirez...

For Red Sox, Getting Clayed is Now Officially a Good Thing

Look, I made this silly-ass meme back when Clay Buchholz was pitching, as Robert California might say, like “some ineffectual, privileged, effete, soft-penis debutante.” It made me laugh and, hey, any excuse to work Caddyshack into the mix. Now, however, the joke may be on me. Since a rather inauspicious start, The Face That Launched A Thousand Nightmares is suddenly pitching...
