I don’t want to fall into this trap at all. I’ve said that when it comes to Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval, I am a “believe it when I see it” type of person. But right now, Sandoval is finishing up a fantastic spring training in which he not only performed well on the field, but also stayed out of trouble off of it. Now I know that in sports preseason production means...

A little over 30 years ago, Red Sox Nation hit its nadir (and we don't mean Ralph) on a Saturday night in October. We won't recount the agony that was the 1986 World Series—but one sportswriter sees a re-match in the offing. Bob Nightengale of USAToday Sports projects that the Red Sox and Metropolitans will face-off again in this year's Fall Classic. Since that fateful series...

This Spring, we've seen a cascade of negative health stories about Red Sox pitchers—now another may be on the horizon. Multiple reports suggest that relief pitcher Carson Smith has suffered a setback in his recovery from Tommy John surgery—feeling "tightness" after his first bullpen session. Previously scheduled to join the bullpen in June, this new problem may significantly...

Cole Sturgeon was a senior at Louisville when the Red Sox selected him in the 10th round of the 2014 amateur draft. He settled for a $10,000 bonus because what other choice did he have? It was either take that or give up baseball. Sturgeon has since made his way to Double A Portland and […]

Rick Porcello didn’t have a very good year in 2015, going 9-15 with a 4.92 ERA (87 ERA+). Even though he did put together a pretty good string of games in the second half of the season, few had high hopes for him entering 2016. Certainly, very few people expected him to win the American League Cy Young award, with a 22-4 record and a 3.15 ERA (145 ERA+); but he did, and suddenly...

I know you, fellow Red Sox fan. You saw the name in the title and felt disgust. I get it. I really do. Drew Pomeranz was not who you thought he was, but instead what you feared. Coming over in return for a very young, very talented pitcher in Anderson Espinoza, Pomeranz – in no uncertain terms – was a disappointment. His only scoreless outing in a Red Sox uniform was in relief...
Big Papi was a big hitter, and that was really his only duty for most of his 20 major league seasons. So when David Ortiz retired last year after more than 2,000 games as a designated hitter, baseball lost one of the few remaining players who rarely played the field. Going into the 45th season since the designated hitter was approved for the American League, more managers now appear...

We are less than a week away from real, actual, meaningful Red Sox baseball. This is undoubtedly very exciting, but the proximity to the season also means we only have a few more days to obsess over player and team projections. How many wins are to be expected? Will that number be enough to win the division? Who is appears poised for an emergent season? Who will regress after a strong...
FORT MYERS, Fla. — If you squint, it remains easy to imagine Blake Swihart as a rare sort of catcher based on his ability to make steady, resounding contact that sends line drives all over the field, and his unusual impact on the bases. There is a reason why, when the Red Sox signed Yoan […]

Alex Rodriguez just admitted something Boston Red Sox fans have been saying for years.The former New York Yankees third baseman is no stranger to controversy, but there’s one thing in his past he particularly regrets.

With spring training winding down, the start to the MLB season is nearing. This season will bring a very different feel to the Boston Red Sox and their organization. For the first time in 14 years, David Ortiz will not be on the opening day roster. Fans and players alike are wondering just how this will affect the coming season and production within the clubhouse. There are many...

But apparently his status has taken a turn for the worse...
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Red Sox pitcher Drew Pomeranz exited Sunday's start after two innings because of tightness in his left triceps, the latest setback for Boston's staff in spring training. The Red Sox said Pomeranz, in competition for a spot in the rotation, was pulled against Minnesota as a precaution. ''I don't think it's anything serious,'' the lefty said. The AL East...

The 2017 Red Sox are probably going to be good. Very good, even. The gamblers at OddsShark have the team’s over/under pegged at 92.5 wins, tied with the Indians for the highest total in the American League and trailing just the Nationals and Cubs across the majors. Obviously, however, this is sports we’re talking about. You play the game on the field, not on paper, or something...
