Red Sox finding success in running game

The running Red Sox? That isn't a description you've heard very often over the years for a franchise that has generally favored power over speed. But manager John Farrell prioritized the running game during the 2013 World Series championship season, and the Red Sox are looking to steal even more in the early stages of this season.

Red Sox Notes: Joe Kelly Placed On DL After First-Inning Exit Vs. Rays

BOSTON — The Red Sox are just 13 games into their 2016 season, but they already need another spot starter in their rotation. Joe Kelly left Tuesday’s 3-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays in the first inning after suffering a right shoulder impingement, and he’ll be placed on the 15-day disabled list. And while it’s too early to know just what Kelly’s final diagnosis will be,...

John Farrell’s Right Move/Wrong Result Bullpen Decision

John Farrell received the wrong result from the right move today. The Red Sox manager used his closer in a high-leverage, non-save situation, in the eighth inning. With the bases filled with Blue Jays and one out in a tie game, Farrell lifted Koji Uehara and brought in Craig Kimbrel. Kimbrel fanned Edwin Encarnacion for the second out, but proceeded to walk Troy Tulowitzki to force...

John Farrell: Hanley Ramirez A Player ‘Completely Different Than A Year Ago’

BOSTON — Hanley Ramirez has come a long way from where he was in 2015, and the Red Sox have taken notice. The former shortstop/third baseman became a left fielder upon signing with the Red Sox last offseason, and it kicked off perhaps the most miserable year of his career. Ramirez started off hot in April with 10 home runs but ended his 2015 campaign with a .249 average, 19 homers...

Time To Say Goodbye To John Farrell

Let’s not wait for another season to circle the drain. It’s time for the Red Sox front office to do what should have been done at the end of last season: fire John Farrell. I don’t think I’m alone in believing that he would have been canned if he didn’t get sick. Under his watch, the Red Sox have finished in last place two out of three years. Yes, yes, I know. He won a...

John Farrell's managerial "skills" cost the Sox yesterday

Ian Vescera (@Ian_Vescera)Contributing WriterPhoto via espn.comIt's a small thing. I get that. The Sox lost their first game of 2016 yesterday. It certainly won't be their last. In a baseball season of 162 games, one singular loss is not that important. However, yesterday's game could be a microcosm for the whole season. Think about it. A starter pitcher fails to produce a quality...
