  1. Reminder: almost every pitcher uses some sort of goo to enhance grip and/or doctor pitches

    If your local talk radio host is frothing at the mouth over Michael Pineda today he is being willfully ignorant of baseball’s approach to doctored baseballs.

    If a pitcher has a foreign substance on his hand and no one is there to complain about it, does it still raise a stink?

  3. 2014 Preview: Boston Red Sox

    Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2014 season. Next up: The Boston Red Sox. The Big Question: Have the Red Sox taken the steps necessary to avoid a post-championship decline? No…

    Ryan Dempster posted a disappointing 4.57 ERA in 171 1/3 innings last summer for the Red Sox and did not get a postseason start, but he was still expected to open the 2014 campaign in Boston’s rotation. That is no longer going to happen. According to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the veteran right-hander announced Sunday…

  5. Is there a bias against big market teams in Manager of the Year voting?

    Nov 13, 2013, 7:52 AM EDT

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

    I couldn’t even begin to tell you whether Terry Francona was a more deserving Manager of the Year candidate than John Farrell. No one has ever explained to me some basis for comparing managers that makes choosing that award anything close to a clear or objective process. There are far more moving parts to a…

  6. Where will the Red Sox spend this winter?

    Masahiro Tanaka

    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…

  7. Red Sox redefine what it means to be dynasty

    Oct 31, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    131031-david-ortiz-dynasty-

    These Boston Red Sox are a new kind of dynasty. I suppose there’s a question if they really ARE a dynasty, if that word “Dynasty” even means anything in today’s game, with 30 teams and the game’s structure pushing toward parity. But Boston did win its third World Series in a 10-year-span. Only eight teams…

  8. All hands on deck for Red Sox; Peavy, Buchholz to be available in relief

    Oct 28, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

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

    Red Sox manager John Farrell said prior to Monday’s Game 5 that jake Peavy, who just started Saturday’s Game 3, would be available in relief tonight, and that Clay Buchholz, who started Game 4, could work out of the pen once the series returns to Fenway Park on Wednesday. Farrell also declined to commit to…

  9. Felix Doubront comes up big in Game 4 win

    Oct 28, 2013, 12:44 AM EDT

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

    These last few weeks couldn’t have been easy for Red Sox left-hander Felix Doubront. With Clay Buchholz back and ready to pitch in the postseason, Doubront was sent to the pen at the end of the regular season after going 11-6 with a 3.87 ERA in his 27 starts. He didn’t want to make the…

  10. The Red Sox tear up the script, tie the World Series at two games a piece

    Oct 27, 2013, 11:53 PM EDT

    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…

  11. Red Sox tie up Game 4 at 1-1 on Stephen Drew’s fifth inning sacrifice fly

    Oct 27, 2013, 10:00 PM EDT

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

    David Ortiz seems to be the only consistent source of offense for the Red Sox thus far in the World Series. He led off the fifth inning of Game 4 with a double to right-center, their first extra-base hit of the night against Cardinals starter Lance Lynn. Lynn started to unravel, walking Jonny Gomes, and…

  12. Carlos Beltran gives the Cardinals the lead in the third inning of Game 4

    Oct 27, 2013, 9:15 PM EDT

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

    Carlos Beltran gave the Cardinals the early 1-0 lead in Game 4 of the World Series with an RBI single up the middle with one out in the bottom of the third inning against Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz. The opportunity came about after Matt Carpenter singled to center, then advanced to second base when…

  13. Clay Buchholz showing diminished velocity, but has held Cardinals scoreless through two innings

    Oct 27, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

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

    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. Nevertheless, Red Sox manager John Farrell gave his right-hander the ball. Through two innings,…

  14. Shane Victorino has been pulled from the Red Sox lineup in Game 4

    Oct 27, 2013, 6:48 PM EDT

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

    Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino has been pulled from manager John Farrell’s starting lineup for Game 4 of the World Series due to lower back tightness, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. As a result, Daniel Nava will move from left field to right field, and Jonny Gomes will enter into the lineup and play…

  15. 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…

  16. Clay Buchholz: “This time of year, you don’t expect anybody to be 100 percent”

    Oct 26, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Six

    Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz has been dealing with tightness in his right shoulder, but manager John Farrell said he will start Game 4 of the World Series anyway. Today, Buchholz reiterated to the media that he isn’t feeling 100 percent, but “this time of year, you don’t expect anybody to be 100 percent.” (via Jayson…

    After the Cardinals and Red Sox split the first two games of the 2013 World Series, the scene shifts to St. Louis for Game 3 tonight. First pitch is scheduled for 8:07 p.m. ET and the game will be broadcast on FOX. Here’s a quick look at the pitching matchup and some random notes: The…

    The Red Sox will go with starter Clay Buchholz in Game 4 of the World Series, reports USA TODAY’s Bob Nightengale on Twitter. Some were concerned that Buchholz, dealing with tightness in his right shoulder, would have to be skipped in the rotation, but that won’t be the case. According to Brooks Baseball, Buchholz showed…

  19. Clay Buchholz is suffering from “general arm fatigue”

    Oct 24, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    Clay Buchholz is not injured, he and the Sox say. And he is still scheduled to start Game 4 on Sunday in St. Louis. But the Red Sox’ ace did acknowledge last night that he is suffering from arm fatigue, reports WEEI.  “Just a little bit of fatigue setting in … It’s just a little…

  20. Forget the ‘one great player’ structure for this World Series

    Oct 23, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

    2013WSLogo

    BOSTON — There seems to be quite a bit of talk about continuity going into this year’s World Series. Well, hey, it’s the Cardinals and the Red Sox again. Fourth time. That was the matchup in ’46, with Stan Musial and Ted Williams, Enos Slaughter and Johnny Pesky, Red Schoendienst and Bobby Doerr and that…

  21. 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…

  22. John Lackey confirmed as World Series Game 2 starter

    Oct 22, 2013, 8:24 PM EDT

    john lackey getty

    From Alex Speier, the excellent Red Sox beat writer at WEEI.com: Red Sox manager John Farrell said that after Jon Lester starts Game 1 of the World Series, John Lackey will start Game 2, in part based on a desire not to have his next trip to the mound be too far removed from his dominant performance in Game 3 of…

  23. Red Sox expected to go with John Lackey in Game 2 of World Series

    Oct 21, 2013, 10:08 PM EDT

    John Lackey Getty

    It came as no surprise when Red Sox manager John Farrell announced this afternoon that Jon Lester will start Game 1 of the World Series against the Cardinals on Wednesday, but there could be a change in store for Game 2. While Clay Buchholz started Game 2 of the ALCS against the Tigers, Sean McAdam…

  24. 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…
