Fantasy Roundup: Buchholz’s Bad Luck

Take 30 seconds and vote in our Week 4 survey (plus see survey results from Week 3)! Bad hair isn’t the only thing that’s plaguing Buchholz (AP Photo, courtesy www.weei.com) Clay Buchholz struggled with his command for most of his brief outing, but he did suffer from some bad luck as the majority of the hits were either ground balls or bloop hits.

Fenway Park has a 'Sleep Room' for players to take naps in?

It’s one of those things you’re not likely to see during your $17 tour of “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark”…the Boston Red Sox “sleep room”. That’s right, Fenway Park has a room dedicated to, you guessed it, sleeping. “It is nice,” catcher David Ross said late last season.  “With the travel schedule you have here and this market and all the Sunday night games...

Red Sox’s Offense Showing Encouraging Signs Despite Boston’s Slow Start

BOSTON — If the Red Sox’s offense stared itself in the mirror right now, it wouldn’t see the same unit that produced an MLB-best 853 runs (5.3 runs per game) last season. But it also shouldn’t be mortified by its appearance. The 9-11 Red Sox have endured struggles this season, and their inability to produce with runners on base has been a big reason why. Boston has begun...

Clay Buchholz gets shelled by the Orioles; what to make of early struggles

Bad outings are a part of life for every pitcher in the Major Leagues and as a result, overreacting to one of them is a big mistake. Of course, when it is a stand alone contest (i.e. Sunday Night Baseball, or Monday’s Patriots’ Day contest) then more of the baseball watching world tends to take note, rather than those outings that blend into a busy evening on the MLB schedule...

Dustin Pedroia: Red Sox Not Panicking Over Early-Season Struggles (Video)

The Boston Red Sox dropped another tight game Monday afternoon, falling to the Baltimore Orioles 7-6 after a ninth-inning rally came up short. The loss was the Red Sox’s 11th in their first 20 games of the season and fifth by a one-run margin, but Dustin Pedroia — whose would-be game-tying home run in the ninth hit just feet from the top of the Green Monster — stressed after...

Clay Buchholz, Two Other Red Sox Slept At Fenway Park Sunday Night

BOSTON — Three Red Sox players threw the Sandman for a loop. Clay Buchholz, John Lackey and Mike Napoli slept over at Fenway Park on Sunday because of the team’s short turnaround between Sunday night’s game and Monday morning’s game against the Baltimore Orioles, according to Red Sox manager John Farrell.

Boston Red Sox: Five takeaways of the week

A couple of interesting notes, observations, and stats that I’ve picked up on over the course of the week for the Boston Red Sox. Let’s get into it. Duel in Chi-Town The final game of the series against the Chicago White Sox featured a battle of two south paws as Red Sox’ ace Jon Lester went up against the lanky Chris Sale.

Is This the Turning Point for the 2014 Red Sox?

We had to wait almost 19 games, but we finally got to see a little of that 2013 magic in 2014. I’m talking about a tide-turning homerun from Jonny Gomes. A come-through, pinch-hit appearance by Mike Carp. A fired-up Dustin Pedroia getting the Fenway crowd amped. And a walk-off win that involved the tossing of at least a couple helmets. I don’t want to get too giddy here; I could...

Boston Red Sox and the importance of Shane Victorino

It’s no secret that the Boston Red Sox’ offense is sputtering right now. For a squad that led the majors in runs a season ago, they currently sit 24th in MLB in runs scored (60) this season and 23rd in the league in team batting average (.236). The good news? Help is on the way. Shane Victorino, who posted a slash of .294/.351/.451 last year with Boston, began his rehab assignment...

John Lackey Rubs Mike Napoli’s Head, Building Team Chemistry While Ruining My Lunch

If you take nothing else from today’s Red Sox/Orioles game (which is still in progress), know that this was the day that John Lackey massaged Mike Napoli’s head in a manner so odd that even had Jerry Remy was pushed to suggest, “That’s almost too much for TV.” It’s actually not all that bad. But it does recall a similarly baffling scene a few years back when Julian Tavarez...

Hanrahan At FenwayA bevy of major league scouts—including those from the Red Sox and Yankees—will witness a workout today by former Red Sox reliever Joel Hanrahan.

Xander Bogaerts wants to be the next US Airways social media manager

Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts is off to a bit of a slow start on the field this season, but don’t let that slow down his game off the field.  According to Hall of Very Good, Bogaerts had only tweeted once since Christmas before Wednesday night.  He returned to social media with a bang though, doing what any 21 year old professional athlete might do… Accidentally tweeting...
