RED SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

How Eduardo Rodriguez Saved the 2015 Red Sox Season

Okay, maybe the headline’s a little over the top. But in a season that has already stepped on my nuts and brought disappointments both expected (Justin Masterson performing very Justin Mastersonly) and unexpected (the absolute lack of offense and Ortiz’s spring swoon), Eduardo Rodriguez’s big league debut last night stands tall. This wasn’t just a good start by Red Sox...

Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Dazzles In MLB Debut

The Boston Red Sox roller coaster season continues, this time with an unexpected and thrilling high. On Thursday night, starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez made his Major League debut against the Texas Rangers. To say he made an impression on his teammates and coaches would be an understatement. Rodriguez, 22, threw 7.2 shutout innings in front of the 34,085 fans in attendance at...

Red Sox Bullpen

On a team of inconsistency, the one constant has been the Red Sox bullpen. The five prime relievers (according to BaseballReference.com) are Koji Uehara, Craig Breslow, Junichi Tazawa, Alexi Ogando, and Tommy Layne. Let’s look at their stats. Through Tuesday, the group had a 2.25 ERA (the team’s was 4.51) with a 3.21 strikeout/walk ratio and a fine 1.05 WHIP. Uehara led...

David Ortiz 'Working Things Out'—Not In Lineup

An ominous comment by Red Sox manager John Farrell has some wags wondering what's going on behinds the scenes with The Carmine Hose. Appearing on WEEI's Dale And Holley Show, Farrell stated that David Ortiz would not be in the Red Sox lineup for "a couple of days". The explanation was that the DH needed "to try to work some things out". Hello!

Sox Lose, Get Swept By Twins

The Red Sox had day game baseball yesterday and hoped to get at least one win before heading out of town.  The Sox had Rick Porcello on the mound and even though Dustin Pedroia hit two 2 run homeruns in the game, the Sox still fell to the Twins.  The Sox were making strides in the AL East, but now they are once again sitting in the basement looking up. The Red Sox got on the scoreboard...

Eduardo Rodriguez To Start For Sox Thursday

(NESN)We've been lobbying for this since at least March 18th—bring up phenom left-handed starter Eduardo Rodriguez! While the Red Sox are not committing to anything beyond this Thursday's start against the Rangers, don't be surprised if Rodriguez sticks and someone else (Joe Kelly?) heads to the bullpen. So far this year, the 22-year old Venezuelan is 4-3 with a 2.98 ERA at AAA...

Indians support Aviles, ailing daughter by shaving heads

  The Cleveland Indians all shaved their heads recently, but it wasn’t simply to start a new team-wide trend.   Cleveland utility man Mike Aviles’ 4-year-old daughter, Adriana, was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this month, so his teammates decided to chop off their locks to support her. Second baseman Jason Kipnis told The Plain Dealer it started with just...

Twins Win Due to Joe Kelly’s Poor Start

The Red Sox had a Memorial Day game in Minnesota and had Joe Kelly on the mound.  Kelly has been better as of late, but that would not continue yesterday.  Kelly struggled and didn’t make it out of the 2nd inning and put the Sox in a hole early.  The Sox offense was not able to make up the difference and the Twins coasted to a victory in the series opener. Kelly gave up a single...

Thank You, Joe Kelly, For Letting Me Go Outside Today

This is a holiday weekend, and there are things you’re “supposed” to do on long weekends in the warmer months. Like go outside, hang with friends, drop back a few hundred brewskis, engage with the family, toss frisbees at homeless people, dress up as Millard Fillmore and hit City Hall Plaza, and cut the crotch out of every pair of “Dockers” in your closet. Thing is, when...

John Farrell: Pitchers need an approved gripping substance

  John Farrell thinks Major League Baseball needs to write down one of its unwritten rules.   After Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Will Smith and Baltimore Orioles pitcher Brian Matusz both were ejected last week and suspended eight games for having a foreign substance on their arms, the great debate about grip-enhancers was brought up once again. And the Boston Red Sox...

Boston Red Sox: Wade Miley goes from bad to good

Going into the 2015 season, the Boston Red Sox and its fan base knew very well that the starting pitching would not be winning the team that many games. They felt the lineup that was assembled in the offseason would be potent enough to keep the team in games. It started off that way for the Red Sox, but the offense slowed up once May rolled around. The starting pitching continued...

Boston Red Sox: Playoff chances hopeful or hopeless?

The Boston Red Sox owe $64 million to players currently uninvolved with the team’s efforts.  With Shane Victorino, Justin Masterson, and Ryan Hanigan all on the DL, and Allen Craig and his remaining $25 million salary in Triple-A Pawtucket, it’s safe to say the Sox aren’t getting their money’s worth. Over the past three seasons the Red Sox have finished in last place, won...

Fantasy Roundup: Nap Attack

Mike Napoli was a sleeper candidate entering the season but has been a disappointment. There have been signs of promise, and the biggest of those came this weekend. While he’s still hitting just .201, Napoli came alive this weekend with 4 HR while going 5-for-9 with 5 R and 8 RBI. Now with 8 HR on the season, this is what we were expecting to see from him to start the season...

Red Sox Notes: Xander Bogaerts Justifying John Farrell’s Lineup Change

BOSTON — The Red Sox have figured out how to play winning baseball. One day after snapping a three-game losing streak with an 8-3 win, the Red Sox made it two straight victories by defeating the Los Angeles Angels 6-1 at Fenway Park. Boston’s win in Sunday’s series finale was one of the team’s most complete efforts of the season, as everything seemed to click for the Sox...

Mike Napoli’s Bat Powers Red Sox Offense

The Boston Red Sox offense showed some life this weekend. The team responded to a major lineup shuffle by Manager John Farrell. The shake-up saw Dustin Pedroia move to the lead-0ff spot with Hanley Ramirez flip-flopping with David Ortiz and Xander Bogaerts assuming the five spot in the order. Make no mistake, the Red Sox have had good starting pitching as of late, but the offense...

Wade, Nap And Bogie Pace Red Sox To 6-1 Win

(Associated Press)Good thing Mike Napoli's back is broad—because he's carrying the Red Sox offense right now. The burly first-sacker knocked in four runs today—including another 2-run HR as the Red Sox took the series from the Angles, 6-1. Quick-working Wade Miley was highly efficient—retiring the first 14 Angels he faced. He ended up going eight solid innings, giving up just...

Dustin Pedroia sums it up: "Everybody's Pissed"

Those hopes were quickly erased following a 9 run 5th inning by the Angels. The Sox went on to lose 12-5. This loss dropped the Sox record to 19-23 and they have now lost 3 straight. Boston's home record fell to 8-12 with the loss. Following...

Red Sox Painfully Wedgied by Angels

Such is the life of a Red Sox fan in 2015: on Thursday night, we were howling for Rusney Castillo to swoop in with his mighty bat and spark this club to new life. By Friday night, he was already hearing jeers from the crowd as he bungled his second play in Fenway’s right field. Hopefully the guy won’t take it personally. It’s just that last night’s game proved something...
