The best- and worst-case scenario for every Red Sox player

COMMENTARY You may have noticed in the Globe preview section that I picked the Orioles to win the American League East. Didn’t want to do it, felt I owed it to them. Actually, I really didn’t want to do it. While I do believe dynamo third baseman Manny Machado will be right there with Mike […]

Meet the 2017 Red Sox

This will be the first Red Sox team since 2002 without the loud bat and occasionally louder voice of David Ortiz. For that reason alone, this will be a fascinating team to watch develop over the next six months. For many Red Sox fans, it’s hard to imagine a team without Big Papi. But the […]

Red Sox Announce 'Improvements' To 105-Year Old Park

The NOG (New Ownership Group) are nothing if not supreme spinmeisters. The latest example is their assertion that new "enhancements" are on display this year in America's Most Cramped Ballpark. (EDITOR's NOTE: For the record, we love Fenway—and have attended games there since 1956, but Red Sox fans deserve a new, state-of-the-art replicate of Fenway). Ready for the vast improvements...

Drew Pomeranz Placed On The 10-Day Disabled List

Well, this wasn't really a surprise. Drew "Damaged Goods" Pomeranz was placed on the 10-day disabled list today with a "left forearm flexor strain". Again, how can the Red Sox medical staff be so seemingly incompetent while residing in Boston—the world's hub of advanced medicine? Astonishing. Anyway, with two lefties now out of the rotation (Pomeranz and David Price), the "Ricky...

How Effective Can Red Sox Closer Craig Kimbrel Be?

Before the 2016 season, the Red Sox traded four prospects to San Diego in exchange for right-handed closer Craig Kimbrel. Kimbrel had been an elite closer for several years, and with Koji Uehara starting to show his age, Kimbrel was expected to perform at the league-leading level he had shown for the previous five years, when he put up ERA+ ranging from 145 to 399. For the Red Sox...

Can Pablo Sandoval Carry His Spring Success Into The Regular Season?

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...

Cole Sturgeon has hit it off with Red Sox

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 […]

How Does Boston’s Opening Day Starter Rick Porcello Get the Job Done?

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...

What Could Go Wrong: 2017 Red Sox Edition

The 2017 Red Sox are probably going to be good. Very good, even.
