Game 46 Recap: Red Sox 10, Rockies 3

Steven Wright puts up another solid start. The Red Sox lineup puts up another double-digit run total. Ho hum. Top Play (WPA) Blake Swihart had been going through a bit of a slump in his return to the majors, tallying just one single in his first three games. That changed on Wednesday night as he came through with the biggest hit of the game that really broke it open for Boston...

Steven Wright Channels Kevin Durant, Explains Ryan Hanigan Is Real MVP

It’s probably not too much of an over-exaggeration to say Steven Wright has been the MVP of the Boston Red Sox’s starting rotation through the first quarter of the season. But a battery mate is never more important than when catching a knuckleballer. Ryan Hanigan has filled those duties behind the plate for Wright this season, and Boston’s ERA leader was sure to point out that...

Red Sox Notes: Steven Wright Tosses Complete Game Gem; David Ortiz Makes History

Red Sox veteran Steven Wright has been one of the best pitchers in Major League Baseball this season, and that was evident in Boston’s 5-1 win over the New York Yankees on Sunday night.

Were We Wrong About Steven Wright?

It was far from a secret that the Red Sox had issues with their rotation heading into the season. The narrative was easy to spot from the beginning, as the back-end crop of starters appeared to be extremely weak. Beyond their number one guy, there were no certainties for what Boston would get from their starter on a day-to-day basis. The big difference from last year, of course,...

David Price Has High Praise For Red Sox Knuckleballer Steven Wright

The Boston Red Sox signed David Price this past offseason to be their newest ace. And he certainly still could be — he’s made just five starts for the Sox, after all, and was very good in three of them. But so far, the Red Sox’s best starting pitcher hasn’t been Price. It’s been 31-year-old knuckleballer Steven Wright, who’s allowed just four total earned runs over his...
