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,...

On the Red Sox and Pablo Sandoval

When Pablo Sandoval was reported to have a shoulder injury shortly after the start of the season, there was rampant ridicule with the implication that the injury had more to do with his displeasure at a relegation to the Red Sox bench and continuous harping on his weight than any actual shoulder problem. Like many of these situations, it turned out that he did have a shoulder issue...

Red Sox Waste Another Effective Steven Wright Start

(Getty Images)Steven Wright pitched well again—aside from four costly walks—but the Red Sox offense could not help him out in a 4-1 loss to the White Sox. Wright went six innings, giving up just three hits and two earned runs. The knuckle-baller struck out six and walked four. Boston's offense came down to an opposite-field solo HR by Hanley Ramirez. Junichi Tazawa pitched one...

Pablo Sandoval: From Panda to Punching Bag

The life of Pablo Sandoval has been nothing but a slow moving train wreck in endless vine loop ever since the All-Star third baseman signed with the Boston Red Sox during the 2014-2015 offseason. The 29-year-old battled through a mediocre campaign in 2015, and after six hitless at-bats in 2016, Sandoval’s season is done. The team announced on Monday that Sandoval will undergo reconstructive...

Don’t Worry About David Price

Let’s start with a little game of good news, bad news. As is tradition, the good news comes first: after inking a seven-year deal worth upwards of $200 million with the Boston Red Sox this offseason, left-handed ace David Price has begun the season with a record of 4-0 in his first six starts.

Red Sox Lack Home Runs, But Not Power

The Red Sox have a good offense. That much is evident. You can simply look at the 126 runs they’ve scored through 24 games (a 5.25 run per game clip) to see the production. Or you can look at the pair of beatdowns they put on the lowly Braves in the middle two games of their four-game series in Atlanta in which they scored 24 times in the four games, and their 8-0 drubbing of the...
