    World Series - Boston Red Sox v St Louis Cardinals - Game Four

    ST. LOUIS — A start from a broken pitcher that went way better than anyone might have guessed. A three-run homer from the most unlikely of men.  On a night when the smart money was lining up against the Boston Red Sox, the storylines didn’t go the way they were supposed to go, resulting in…

    There was some concern about Clay Buchholz going into his start in Game 4 of the World Series due to tightness in his right shoulder, the same one that knocked him out of commission for three months during the regular season.

    Oct 27, 2013, 12:56 AM EDT

    World Series - Boston Red Sox v St Louis Cardinals - Game Three

    Don’t blame Will Middlebrooks for the fluky obstruction call that ended Game 3. Don’t blame umpire Jim Joyce, who made the gutsy choice to call it and give the Cardinals a 5-4 victory. Blame the guy who made the bad throw in the first place: Jarrod Saltalamacchia. The struggling Saltalamacchia shouldn’t have even been in…

    Oct 25, 2013, 7:25 PM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    National League rules are causing quite the conundrum for the Red Sox. As they’ll be in St. Louis for Games 3, 4, and 5, they will have to watch their pitchers bat rather than utilizing a DH, normally David Ortiz. They must choose one of Ortiz and Mike Napoli, who has been playing first base…

  14. The overturning of the Pete Kozma play last night was a preview of the upcoming challenge replay system

    Oct 24, 2013, 7:41 AM EDT

    World Series Cardinals Red Sox Baseball

    Watching the umpires overturn Dana DeMuth’s awful call on the would-be double play ball dropped by Pete Kozma last night made me wonder about the upcoming expanded instant replay system. Hearing Joe Torre talk about it with Ken Rosenthal a couple of innings later made me wonder even more. My biggest takeaways from it are…

    BOSTON — You ever had one of those days when nothing goes right? I’m not talking about big and tragic things going wrong, no, just little things. Little stupid things.

    Oct 24, 2013, 12:24 AM EDT

    World Series Cardinals Red Sox Baseball

    David Ortiz had one mammoth hit in the ALCS — a game-tying grand slam off Joaquin Benoit in Game 2 — but he finished just 2-for-22 for the series. Apart from the slam, he hadn’t driven in any runs in seven games. His Game 1 of the World Series shouldn’t have started any better. With…

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Boston Red Sox

    Matt Thornton threw a simulated game yesterday at Fenway Park to prepare himself in case the Red Sox wanted to add him to the roster for the World Series, but they’ve decided against activating the veteran left-hander.

  20. Clay Buchholz may have a “physical issue”

    Oct 23, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    This is more of a “keep it in the back of your mind” thing, as the Red Sox say that their plans with respect to Clay Buchholz have not changed for the World Series. But Rob Bradford of WEEI reports that there is at least some question about Buchholz’s health at the moment: While a…

    Getty ice cream cone

    Jonny Gomes has started over Daniel Nava in left field for four out of the last six games and Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald earlier today that he’ll likely stick with the same arrangement for Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday. However, that isn’t getting…

  22. Do the Red Sox or the Cardinals have the World Series pitching edge?

    Oct 21, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Adam Wainwright

    This postseason has been dominated by pitching, so who has the arms advantage in the World Series? During the regular season the Red Sox ranked sixth among AL teams in runs allowed and the Cardinals ranked fifth among NL teams in runs allowed, but overall totals can be misleading when it comes to evaluating the…

    Oct 19, 2013, 10:35 PM EDT

    ALCS - Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers - Game Four

    Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz didn’t have enough gas to get through the sixth inning of Game 6. After shutting the Tigers out through five, he showed diminished velocity and command, as he walked lead-off batter Torii Hunter on consecutive 88 MPH fastballs. He then surrendered a single to Miguel Cabrera through the hole between…

    The scene: Runners on first and second after Tigers starter Max Scherzer walks both Xander Bogaerts and Jacoby Ellsbury to start the bottom of the third inning.
