O's "Demonstrate" Inadequacy Of Sox Pitching

(AP Photo)Amid a "lock-down" of Camden Yards due to nearby protest demonstrations, The Orioles took advantage of crap Red Sox pitching to gain a 5-4 comeback win over Boston. This time it was "reliable" Koji Ueara who could not hold  4-3 advantage in the 9th—delivered by a Xander Bogaerts solo HR in the top half of the inning.

Xander Bogaerts Sits; Brock Holt Starts As Red Sox Open Series With Orioles

Despite that, Bogaerts will sit when Boston opens a three-game series with Baltimore Orioles on Friday night. The reason for Bogaerts’ night off might have something to do with the man on the mound Friday night for the O’s. Miguel Gonzalez...

Bogie In, Panda & Papi Out Of Today's Lineup

Xander Bogaerts will be in the lineup today for the Red Sox, so his knee issue was likely minor. Pablo Sandoval, on the other hand, is not playing today—raising questions about his foot injury. It's not clear why David Ortiz is sitting—although it might just be a routine day off. Mike Napoli will DH today and Allen Craig will play at first. Brock "Mr. Swiss Army Knife" Holt will...

Bogaerts the Hero of the Longest Red Sox Game Ever

Last night, as the Sox/Yanks game hit the halfway mark, I looked at my watch and realized we’d only been playing for little more than an hour. With the Sox seemingly in control, I’d already mapped out how I’d fill the rest of my evening — a plan that included binge-watching Daredevil on Netflix, grilling a few steaks and finding out how many Chinatown hookers it takes to...

The Role of “The Man” Will be Played by Xander Bogaerts in 2015

We’re less than one week into the grapefruit games and I know the importance of keeping things in perspective. ****, last year around this time I was sizing Grady Sizemore up for “comeback player of the year” so you don’t have to tell me about the best laid plans of mice, men and John Farrell. That said, if there’s one thing I’m happy to see, it’s young Xander Bogaerts...

Xander Bogaerts Trending Upward With Hot Start To Red Sox Spring Training

Xander Bogaerts sure has the look of a breakout candidate for the Boston Red Sox. It was easy to see last season that Bogaerts was overmatched at times at the major league level, and it’s even easier to see this spring that the 22-year-old shortstop could be in line for a significant Year 2 jump. Bogaerts drilled his second home run of spring training Sunday in Boston’s 6-3 win...

Xander Bogaerts wants to be the next US Airways social media manager

Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts is off to a bit of a slow start on the field this season, but don’t let that slow down his game off the field.  According to Hall of Very Good, Bogaerts had only tweeted once since Christmas before Wednesday night.  He returned to social media with a bang though, doing what any 21 year old professional athlete might do… Accidentally tweeting...
