Heartbreaking turn of events will bring changes in Red Sox organization

There is no reason to recap in great detail the historically devastating turn of events that sent the Boston Red Sox home for the season in a year they were built to win the World Series. If you are a Red Sox fan, you saw Jonathan Papelbon one strike away from recording a save and [...]

Lavarnway, Aceves allow Red Sox to remain alive in wild card race

Who is Ryan Lavarnway, you ask? Well, he will likely serve as the backup catcher for the Red Sox in 2012 if Jason Varitek retires. And, along with outfielder Bryce Brentz, he is the top power-hitting prospect in the Red Sox system. On Tuesday night, he was one of the reasons the Red Sox remained [...]

Red Sox have the look of a team that is already defeated

These days, it is simple for baseball writers to craft game recaps about the Boston Red Sox. Just use a template, and change the names to fit the respective night. It’s a template that includes a starting pitcher who cannot hold down the opposing lineup and get key outs, a lineup that fails to deliver [...]

Ellsbury’s clutch home run could mean the difference in the AL MVP race

Earlier in the day, Jacoby Ellsbury became the first Red Sox player in history to hit 30 home runs and steal at least 30 bases. That was a significant feat, but it was lost in yet another September loss for the Sox that sent them to 5-18 during the month and saw their wild card [...]

Red Sox continue to embarrass themselves, watch wild card lead dwindle

The media should do itself a favor. Conduct some simple Internet research and stop mistakenly comparing the current Red Sox collapse to 1978. After this afternoon’s 6-2 loss to the Yankees in the first of a day-night-doubleheader, the Red Sox saw their wild card lead trimmed to a half-game over the Tampa Bay Rays, a [...]

Lester proves again that he cannot be considered an ace

Before the season opened, it appeared that the Boston Red Sox featured a deep starting rotation with Jon Lester, Josh Beckett, Clay Buchholz, John Lackey and Daisuke Matsuzaka. The 162-game schedule has a way of thinning out a roation, and exposing weaknesses. Matsuzaka was lost for the year with Tommy John surgery, and Buchholz has [...]

Papelbon the latest pitcher sucked in by Boston’s September slide

The Red Sox remain a sloppy mess, and last night one of their few reliable pitchers fell victim to the September slide. Clinging to a 5-4 lead with one out in the eighth inning, the Sox turned to closer Jonathan Papelbon. The closer relieved Daniel Bard, who retired the side in order in the seventh [...]

Starting pitching woes continue as Red Sox get doubleheader split

Though the Red Sox salvaged the finale of a day-night doubleheader with a victory over Baltimore, the September stench remains. Monday served as a microcosm of Boston’s struggles this month. In the day-night doubleheader opener, rookie right-hander Kyle Weiland allowed six runs (five earned) and five hits in 4.2 innings in a game Boston lost, [...]

Simply put, Rays are significantly better than the Red Sox

With Tim Wakefield on the mound, it’s hard for the Red Sox to win, especially since the 45-year-old knuckleballer has now allowed 11 earned runs in his last 16 innings¬†and has proven this season that he can no longer consistently get major league hitters out. When the defense continues to give opposing team extra outs [...]

Lester’s performance, Red Sox results unacceptable in another loss to the Rays

Especially for the astute Red Sox fans, it is not fun watching this team right now. Though  they lead the majors in runs with 811, Boston has been invisible in September when it has needed timely hits, and the team has been plagued with shoddy defense, poor fundamentals and ineffective outings from their starters and [...]
