Doubront continues team record stretch in Boston’s 4-0 win

By Jeff Louderback On paper, with Clay Buchholz on the disabled list and Jon Lester no longer a frontline starter, Jake Peavy is likely considered the ace of the Red Sox rotation. Yet it is 25-year-old left-hander Felix Doubront who has the most impressive numbers this season among the arms currently in the rotation. Doubront [...]

Ineffective Lester and Holt contribute to Boston’s 7-6 loss

By Jeff Louderback A stinker of an outing from Jon Lester, and Brock Holt‘s inability to drop a sacrifice bunt in the ninth inning, contributed to a 7-6 loss for Boston against Arizona in the opener of a three-game series on Friday night at Fenway Park. Lester was cuffed around for six runs and 11 [...]

9th inning comeback a microcosm of Red Sox season

By Jeff Louderback John Farrell admitted on Friday morning that, as he drank his coffee, he still couldn’t believe that the Red Sox pulled out their improbably win the previous night. Down 7-1 entering the eighth inning, Shane Victorino belted a solo home run. Then, in the bottom of the ninth, the Red Sox erupted [...]

40-man roster will partly determine Red Sox trade chips

By Jeff Louderback Featuring one of the best farm systems in Major League Baseball, the Boston Red Sox are well-stocked with appealing prospects. Some will fill holes with the parent club while others will be used as trade chips. As the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline is a few days away, chances are the only [...]

Pedroia’s team first approach helps Red Sox long term

By Jeff Louderback It was no surprise that Dustin Pedroia agreed to an eight-year, $110 million contract extension that is designed to keep him in a Red Sox uniform through 2021. The 29-year-old second baseman represents the heart of the organization, plays the game the right way and leads by example. Pedroia could have gained [...]

Red Sox success traced to talented depth

By Jeff Louderback At 53-34 , the Boston Red Sox sit atop the American League East, hold a 4.5-game lead over second place Baltimore and own the best record in the AL. Yet, chances are, David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia will be the team’s lone representatives in the All-Star Game. Fret not for the Red [...]

Allen Webster’s first Major League win completes Red Sox sweep of Padres

By Jeff Louderback Three hits from Jacoby Ellsbury, including his second home run of the season, was a highlight. So was Brandon Snyder‘s first home run in a Red Sox uniform. Yet the most encouraging part of Boston’s 8-2 victory over San Diego, which completed a three-game series sweep, was 23-year-old rookie right-hander Allen Webster, [...]

Dempster delivers again in 11-4 Red Sox win

By Jeff Louderback With ace Clay Buchholz languishing on the disabled list and Jon Lester pitching like a lackluster No. 5 arm, the Red Sox desperately need veteran right-handers Ryan Dempster and John Lackey to provide stability to a shaky rotation. Dempster continued to deliver on Tuesday with six strong innings against Colorado, limiting the [...]

Alfredo Aceves silences Rays again in rainy Game One win

By Jeff Louderback A rain delay that was one minute shy of three hours knocked starter Alfredo Aceves out of the game, but four Red Sox relievers silenced the Tampa Bay Rays in Boston’s 5-1 win in the opener of a day-night doubleheader. Aceves was summoned from Pawtucket to take the mound, and he limited [...]

Iglesias continues to impress with the bat

By Jeff Louderback In last night’s box score, the numbers that follow names like Ellsbury, Gomes, Pedroia and Ortiz immediately stand out. After all, Ellsbury and Gomes slapped four hits, Ortiz belted a walk-off home run and Pedroia collected two RBI on a double. Jose Iglesias‘ stat line is also worth a look. The 23-year-old [...]
