The Clay Buchholz Option Conundrum

I don’t really like roller coasters, if we’re being honest with each other. Don’t get me wrong; I understand the appeal. There is a legitimate adrenaline rush involved when reaching each individual peak and valley. That anything could go wrong at any given moment — even though you know it almost certainly won’t — is thrilling. At the end of the day, though, it’s just...

Eduardo Rodriguez Is Sliding Back Into Relevance

By far the best development in the second half for the Red Sox is their starting pitching. It’s been stellar! As a unit, the Red Sox’s starters are fourth in the majors in both ERA and FIP. You have David Price and Drew Pomeranz righting the ship after a rocky start with the team, Rick Porcello continuing his excellence, and while Steven Wright hasn’t been the same, he’s...

Andrew Benintendi shares how he made great catch

Andrew Benintendi’s home run-robbing catch Monday was an immediate nominee for play of the year. But how exactly does a 22-year-old rookie outfielder pull off such a feat? The catch helped the Boston Red Sox seal a 6-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays, and prevented things from getting too close for comfort — Boston led just 3-0 at the time, and the shot would’ve plated...

Benintendi had other plans, and made an amazing leaping effort to rob...

Mookie Betts has mashed his way into American League MVP consideration, Xander Bogaerts might be the AL’s best-hitting shortstop and Jackie Bradley Jr. has had a career-changing season that’s seen him ride a 29-game hitting streak and go from Triple-A castoff...

Pablo Sandoval Needs To Return To Form With David Ortiz Retiring, John Henry Says

It sounds as though the Boston Red Sox haven’t given up on Pablo Sandoval just yet. The third baseman had a rough 2015 campaign after signing a five-year, $95 million contract with the Red Sox and appeared in just three games in 2016 after losing his starting job to Travis Shaw and undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery in May. But Red Sox owner John Henry is hoping to see more...
