  2. The Rays’ all just wasn’t quite enough

    Oct 9, 2013, 12:58 AM EDT

    Will Middlebrooks, Yunel Escobar

    The Rays used 22 of their 25 players in Tuesday’s loss, and they were one inning away from turning to their Game 5 starter. Still, no matter how much Joe Maddon maneuvered, there was no outgunning the Red Sox this week. It was plenty close. The Rays got the break they needed in the second…

  5. Over-managing playoff managers and bunts that “work”

    Oct 8, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    jimmy dugan

    If I ever owned a baseball team, I’d want to hire Jimmy Dugan from “A League of their Own” as my manager. This isn’t only because he dislikes the bunt, though that helps — you probably remember the scene where he finally notices what’s happening on the field and calls off Geena Davis’ bunt sign…

  6. Red Sox guilty of a little too much playoff baseball

    Oct 7, 2013, 11:08 PM EDT

    Division Series - Boston Red Sox v Tampa Bay Rays - Game Three

    The Red Sox could have played this one straight up tonight. Instead, they made concessions to it being a postseason games. Because postseason games are rarely won 12-2 or 7-4. – In the seventh, with the score tied at 3, the Red Sox used Craig Breslow and Junichi Tazawa to get three outs. Those are…

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    The Red Sox will head down to Tampa Bay happy campers. After a thorough 12-2 dismantling of the Rays in Game 1, the Sox scored seven runs against 2012 AL Cy Young award winner David Price in seven-plus innings, just enough run support for John Lackey. The scoring started early, with Jacoby Ellsbury leading off…

  12. Four points of award voting

    When I was a kid, I loved the annual awards column that would run in the local newspaper. It does not really matter WHICH local paper I’m talking about now because some version of that column ran in every newspaper in the United States. The columns always picked the writers’ baseball award winners and, along…

    Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell surveys the field before his team takes on the Baltimore Orioles in an MLB American League baseball game in Baltimore

    We still have one game left that, technically and statistically speaking, belongs to the regular season. But practically speaking — and in our hearts — we are into the playoffs now. Game 163 between the Rays and Rangers is do-or-die and very, very few regular season games can say that. So: toss your technical orthodoxy.…

  14. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    David Ortiz Getty

    Clay Buchholz had his longest outing since coming off the disabled list while David Ortiz joined some special company as the Red Sox hammered the Orioles 12-3 last night at Camden Yards. In doing so, John Farrell’s club is one step closer to clinching the best record in the American League. While Buchholz didn’t have…

  16. Jacoby Ellsbury resumes baseball activities

    Sep 21, 2013, 1:15 AM EDT

    Jacoby Ellsbury

    Jacoby Ellsbury, dealing with a non-displaced fracture of the navicular bone in his right foot, has resumed baseball activities, reports WEEI’s Alex Speier. “Baseball activities”, here, means that Ellsbury was able to swing off a tee and throw in the field. The Red Sox are hoping to get him back before the regular season ends so…

  17. Red Sox’s turnaround more about incumbents than newcomers

    Sep 21, 2013, 12:15 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v San Francisco Giants

    We’ve heard it a million times now: the Red Sox changed the clubhouse culture for the better when they brought in Shane Victorino, Mike Napoli, Jonny Gomes and Ryan Dempster over the winter. And that’s certainly true. I imagine this has been the best Red Sox team to cover in several years, and they do,…

    John Lackey Getty

    Jarrod Saltalamacchia

    Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a seventh-inning grand slam against Yankees reliever Preston Claiborne to break a 4-4 tie. The blast, which came on an 0-1, 92 MPH fastball, cleared the fence in right field at Fenway Park with plenty of room to spare. The Yankees, despite massive bullpen issues, had won their last…

    Mike Napoli Getty

    According to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald, Mike Napoli is back in the starting lineup this afternoon against the Dodgers after resting for the past six games due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

    Aug 19, 2013, 12:48 AM EDT

    Yankees' Rodriguez celebrates his solo home run against Red Sox's Dempster in the sixth inning of their MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    This one had a little bit of everything packed into a crisp four hours and 12 minutes. – After Boston grabbed a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first, Ryan Dempster drilled Alex Rodriguez with a 3-0 pitch to open the second. It was at least Dempster’s second attempt to hit him, but the…

  22. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:58 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Pirates 4, Marlins 3: A walkoff homer for Josh Harrison — the utility infielder if you didn’t know — gave this one to Pittsburgh, as the Pirates show no inclination to give up first place. Andrew McCutchen had a fantastic diving catch to save at least one run in the seventh when the game was tied and…

  23. Blown call from Jerry Meals, bad baseball doom Red Sox in loss

    Jul 30, 2013, 12:19 AM EDT

    Jerry Meals

    Make no mistake: the Red Sox played some pretty terrible baseball in losing 2-1 to the Rays on Monday. Still, a blown call at home plate in the bottom of the eighth cost them the tying run and, for that, Jerry Meals was to blame. Here’s the video: Meals admitted after the game that he…

    Clay Buchholz AP

    Clay Buchholz hasn’t pitched in a game since June 8 due to shoulder problems. And six weeks later, it’s still not clear when he’ll be ready to return to the Red Sox.
