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

    Brandon Workman has done a solid job for the Red Sox, posting a 4.13 ERA in 52 innings split between the rotation and bullpen, but the 25-year-old right-hander has been optioned back to Triple-A following last night’s loss to the White Sox.

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

    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that Red Sox starter Jake Peavy cut his left index finger with a fishing knife. As a result, he’ll be idle three days and won’t pitch tomorrow as previously scheduled. Brandon Workman will take his place. Peavy dealt with a finger problem on his other hand — tendonitis…

    With Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, Stephen Drew and Jarrod Saltalamacchia all filing for free agency, the world champion Red Sox would seem to have a whole lot of flexibility this winter. Even without signing any replacements, they have a perfectly legitimate 25-man roster ready to go: SS: Xander Bogaerts: $500,000 RF: Shane Victorino: $13 million…

    The Red Sox are World Series champions, and they’re celebrating that accomplishment in front of their hometown fans for the first time since 1918. Red Sox starter John Lackey battled through a bit of early shakiness to deliver 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball and the inspired Boston offense pounded rookie sensation Michael Wacha in…

    Oct 27, 2013, 2:23 AM EDT

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

    - Allen Craig, hobbled by a painful foot injury that nearly ruled him out for the postseason, scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth Saturday on the first ever obstruction call to end a postseason game. – Craig scored because Jarrod Saltalamacchia, whom manager John Farrell forgot to take out of the…

  6. Jarrod Saltalamacchia is having the worst of weeks

    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…

  7. The night John Farrell embraced chaos

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

    ST. LOUIS — There’s a cliche about managers putting their players in the best position to succeed. A corollary to that is having the best players in the right position, at the right time. Do those things as often as possible and you’re more likely than not to win, right? Well, sometimes. The Red Sox tested…

  8. Cardinals win Game 3 of the World Series on an obstruction call

    Jim Joyce

    Oh boy. You’re going to be hearing a lot about the ending of this one for a long time. Let’s set up the scene: Brandon Workman in for his second inning of relief. Matt Adams strikes out on a dropped third strike. Yadier Molina bloops a single to shallow right-center. Allen Craig pinch-hits. Reliever Koji…

  9. What do Brandon Workman and Graeme Lloyd have in common?

    Oct 26, 2013, 11:56 PM EDT

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

    Neither is in my kitchen. I kid. ESPN’s Mark Simon posted this fascinating bit of Trivia on Twitter a few minutes ago, after Red Sox reliever Brandon Workman had stepped into the batter’s box in the ninth inning of a tie game against Trevor Rosenthal. Workman, of course, struck out looking. Last pitcher to bat…

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

    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 20, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Six

    It was the Tigers’ game to lose, but ultimately, the Red Sox won it. Shane Victorino delivered a timely grand slam in the bottom of the seventh to give the Red Sox a three-run lead. In doing so, he tasked the sterling Red Sox bullpen with getting six outs to punch their ticket to the…

  12. The Tigers storm back to take the lead in the 6th inning of Game 6

    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…

  13. Has John Farrell learned his lesson now?

    Oct 17, 2013, 12:17 AM EDT

    John Farrell

    Red Sox manager John Farrell allowed Clay Buchholz to give up five runs to the Tigers in Sunday’s ALCS Game 2, only to be bailed out by one swing from David Ortiz‘s bat. On Wednesday, there was no such rescue after Jake Peavy was allowed to surrender seven runs in three-plus innings in what turned…

    Oct 13, 2013, 10:20 PM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    Through the first 14 innings, the ALCS had been a pitcher-dominated affair. Anibal Sanchez and the Tiger bullpen held the Red Sox hitless through eight and two-thirds innings in Game 1 and Scherzer has held the Sox hitless through five in Game 2. To their credit, the Sox pitching has been nearly as good —…

  15. 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…

    The Rays aren’t letting their season go without a fight. Thanks to an RBI ground out from pinch-hitter Delmon Young, the Rays moved ahead of the Red Sox 4-3 in the bottom of the eighth inning. The rally started after James Loney walked against Franklin Morales and Desmond Jennings reached on a bunt single. Matt…

    Sep 8, 2013, 6:15 PM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v New York Yankees

    The four-game series against the Red Sox has been a nightmare for the Yankees, but it has mercifully ended on a good note for the Bronx Bombers. With his team leading 3-2 in the ninth inning, Yankees closer Mariano Rivera surrendered a lead-off game-tying solo home run to Will Middlebrooks, his seventh save of the…

    Jul 31, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Pittsburgh Pirates - Game Two

    Pirates 2, Cardinals 1; Pirates 6, Cardinals 0: First. Place. Pirates. And the best record in baseball. A walkoff in the opener and a beatdown in the nightcap. Six straight losses by the reeling Cardinals, who lost Yadier Molina to the DL on top of it all. And maybe — just maybe — the end…
