RED SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Simmer Down.

So, that last series. What a doozy, huh? Sure, the Red Sox still look like a team still struggling to employ a consistent offense, but hey, at least they doubled their home run total to a whopping eight dingers, right? A 100 percent increase in round-trippers can’t be bad. And sure, the pitching was putrid at times, but they’ve still got Chris Sale, who pitches again on Wednesday...

What’s Wrong with Steven Wright?

Knuckleballer Steven Wright was pitching pretty well in 2016 before he was sidelined with a shoulder injury, but so far in 2017 he has been simply bad (ERA of 8.03, 2.094 WHIP). After his most recent game, Brian MacPherson noted on Twitter: Jason Mastrodonato noted the same thing: There’s no doubt that MacPherson and Mastrodonato are correct. Let’s compare PITCHf/x for Wright...

Forget The Empire, Red Sox Beat New Rival O's, 6-2

(AP Photo)Not since the completion of the transcontinental railroad has a spike had so much impact. Manny Machado's spiking of Dustin Pedroia has set off a spiral or reprisal that could get real nasty before it gets better. Today, with the Red Sox "comfortably" ahead 6-0, Matt Barnes unleashed a pitch very close to Machado's head—that ironically only hit his bat for a strike. But...

Chris Sale’s Spectacular Start

In what has quickly become an early season tradition over the last couple seasons, the Red Sox starting rotation, once again, sucks. Outside of Chris Sale, none of the Red Sox starters have an ERA under five. The second best ERA in the rotation belongs to Drew Pomeranz, who’s currently supporting a healthy, robust 5.23 ERA (although to be fair, he’s also running a 3.22 FIP, so...

Is it too early to worry about Rick Porcello?

So far for the Boston Red Sox, the team has seen two versions of the player traded for Yoenis Cespedes. Us fans have seen 2015 Rick Porcello, and 2016 Rick Porcello. 2015 Porcello was bad, truly, quite bad. 2016 Porcello on the other hand, was really quite good- in fact the best pitcher in the AL, winning the Cy Young Award. It was truly amazing to see such a rebound. In 2015, one...
