Boston Red Sox Fire & Ice: Jackie Bradley Hot, Xander Bogaerts Cold
July 8th, 2014 at 1:07 PM
The Boston Red Sox have lost 3 straight games and 7 of their last 10 to fall to the bottom of the AL East and 10 games back of the division leading Baltimore Orioles. Times are tough in Red Sox Nation these days, but that doesn't mean we can't find...

Boston Red Sox Designate Grady Sizemore for Assignment
June 17th, 2014 at 5:00 PM
ESPNBoston.com reports that the Boston Red Sox have designated outfielder Grady Sizemore for assignment this afternoon. The team now has 10 days to either trade or release the veteran. Sizemore made a valiant comeback effort after missing over two seasons due to injuries, but ultimately his limited production no longer...

Boston Red Sox Fire & Ice: Brandon Workman Hot, Dustin Pedroia Cold
June 16th, 2014 at 6:23 PM
The bats in the Boston Red Sox lineup haven't been producing much offense lately. In the past week, the team has scored a total of 20 runs, half of which came in one game against Cleveland. Outside of that brief outburst, it was a fairly quiet week for an offense...

Boston Red Sox Fire & Ice:John Lackey Hot, Stephen Drew Cold
June 9th, 2014 at 6:23 PM
The Boston Red Sox went 1-5 last week on their current road trip, but it hasn't all been bad news. Mike Napoli hit a home run in his return from the Disabled list last night and Clay Buchholz pitched a simulated game over the weekend. If the Sox can start...

Is This the Worst Outfield in Boston Red Sox History?
June 4th, 2014 at 2:44 PM
The Boston Red Sox have been uncharacteristically mediocre on offense this season. After leading the majors in runs scored by a large margin last season, they've fallen to 16th so far this year. Boston is hitting .246 as a team, ranking only 19th in the majors. This is not the...

Boston Red Sox Fire & Ice: David Ortiz Hot, Grady Sizemore Cold
May 19th, 2014 at 10:43 AM
Baseball season is a 162 game marathon where everyone encounters their fair share of ups and downs. Not even the greatest players stay hot all season, as there are always bumps in the road. Likewise, nobody stays in a slump the entire time either. Well, at least not those who...

Cody Ross Proving to Be the Steal Acquisition of Last Offseason
July 20th, 2012 at 3:13 PM
During this past winter, the majority of the baseball buzz was surrounding the huge contracts signed by Albert Pujols (10-years, $240 million) and Jose Reyes (six-years, $106 million).  Both were considered the top signings of the offseason, but the Red Sox could have made the best signing when it comes...

Crawford Ready to Make Season Debut
July 16th, 2012 at 9:17 AM
When a .500 team gets a player like Carl Crawford back from injury, rejuvenation to the lineup is what everyone expects.  However, coming off arguably the worst season at the plate of his career, the Red Sox are not sure what to expect from the former All-Star.  Crawford signed a 7-year,...

Opportunity for the Boston Red Sox?
June 13th, 2012 at 2:16 PM
Ok, look. The Red Sox have slightly underachieved so far this year, but last night's MUCH needed 2-1 win might be the jumpstart they need. I’m here to tell you why it is not too late (yet) and that the next three weeks are going to be pivotal in the...

Scott Podsednik Enters with a Bang for Boston Red Sox
May 23rd, 2012 at 4:18 PM
Scott Podsednik is the 10th starting outfielder for the Boston Red Sox this year (by my unofficial count). He sure came in with a bang in today’s win over Baltimore. With the Sox clinging to a 5-4 lead in the 8th inning, Podsednik launched a breaking ball from Darren O’Day over...

Red Sox Handed Victory to Salvage Last Game of Series with Bucs
June 26th, 2011 at 9:10 PM
The Boston Red Sox ended their four-game slide by beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-2 this afternoon at PNC park in Pittsburgh, but the more accurate description of today's goings-on would be that the Pirates lost this game, as opposed to the Red Sox winning it. ***PHOTO1*** No disrespect intended to the winner,...

The Boston Red Sox’ Least Productive Position
June 4th, 2011 at 10:59 PM
It's common knowledge what position is weakest on the Red Sox - indeed, most teams in the league share this weakness. The simple fact is that the catcher position is too valuable defensively to worry overmuch about poor hitting statistics from that spot. One lives with low batting average, OBP,...

Boston Red Sox OF Darnell McDonald placed on DL
May 26th, 2011 at 1:43 PM
NESN is reporting that Darnell McDonald has been placed on the disabled list with an unspecified injury. Taking his spot in the lineup, and in the game today, is Josh Reddick, having been called up from Pawtucket. McDonald was a lightly-used member of manager Terry Francona's bench; often when players like...
