    Tim Lincecum

    Because the non-All-Stars deserve recognition too — even when they’d prefer to hide their faces — here’s a look at some midpoint leaderboards in reverse order. OPS 1. Dee Gordon (SS LAD): .562 2. Cliff Pennington (SS Oak): .563 3. Cameron Maybin (CF SD): .596 4. Jamey Carroll (INF Min): .597 5. Justin Smoak (1B…

    The Yankees defeated the Red Sox 10-8 last night without hitting a home run, just their second win this season without a homer, but they put on another power display this afternoon. Franklin Morales was knocked around for six runs over just 3 1/3 innings as a Bombers cruised to a 6-1 win in the…

  3. Some people have a problem with Clay Buchholz going to a charity event? Really?

    Clay Buchholz just got out of the hospital for esophagitis. Less than 24 hours later, the team has confirmed, he attended a charity event for The Greg Hill Foundation, which is designed to provide immediate assistance for families touched by tragedy. Most people would probably view that as being pretty damn noble and, depending on how sick…

    The Red Sox finally have a diagnosis on right-hander Clay Buchholz, who was sent to the hospital and placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with was being described as a “gastro-intestinal illness.” According to beat writer Tim Britton of the Providence Journal the 27-year-old starter has esophagitis, “which led to an erosion of the esophagus and…

  5. Directionless Red Sox hope for addition by subtraction

    Kevin Youkilis

    Make no mistake about it: this is a pretty nasty storm the Red Sox have had to weather. The team has already had to use 41 players. The left fielder and the closer have missed the entire season so far. The All-Star center fielder has missed most of it. At one point, the team’s top…

  6. Clay Buchholz scratched from start Sunday and placed on DL with intestinal bleeding

    From Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe comes word that right-hander Clay Buchholz has been scratched from his scheduled Sunday start against the Braves because of an illness. Aaron Cook will be called up from Triple-A Pawtucket and officially activated from MLB’s 15-day disabled list to pitch in his place. Buchholz has an ugly 5.53…

  7. Reviewing the rotations; Nats, Dodgers lead the way

    David Price

    A couple of months before the season, I used my Rotoworld projections to rank the rotations, based strictly on ERA, from 1-30. Let’s look at that list now and see where each team starters’ measure up about 40 percent of the way through the season. Projected rank – Team – Current rank 1. Phillies: 3.39…

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Royals 2, Brewers 1: Luis Mendoza took a no-hitter into the seventh, but it was still close as prodigal Royal Zack Greinke was pretty sharp too, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings. Billy Butler‘s RBI single in the eighth was the difference. White Sox 6, Cardinals 1: Paul Konerko is batting…

  9. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 8, 2012, 5:50 AM EDT

    Norichika Aoki

    Brewers 4, Cubs 3: Norichika Aoki hit two homers including the walkoff. Overall, he’s kicking some major butt. Mets 3, Nationals 1: As I said yesterday: Dickey beats Wang. I’m still giggling, by the way. Pirates 5, Reds 4: Aroldis Chapman finally allowed a run. You see? You see? He’s not a machine, he’s a man, he’s a man!  Someone alert…

  10. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Another night, another disappointing performance for Tim Lincecum. The two-time Cy Young Award failed to get back on track last night against the Marlins, giving up six runs over 5 2/3 innings as part of a 7-6 loss. Lincecum allowed just one run over the first five innings — a long solo blast by Giancarlo…

  11. Clay Buchholz and his 9.09 ERA will stay in the Red Sox’s rotation … for now

    May 7, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Clay Buchholz

    Our own Matthew Pouliot wrote yesterday about Clay Buchholz‘s struggles and wondered how much longer the Red Sox would leave him in the rotation. Buchholz failed to make it out of the fourth inning yesterday as his ERA rose to 9.09, but afterward manager Bobby Valentine told reporters: “I have no plans to change him…

  12. Clay Buchholz has the Red Sox in a bind

    May 6, 2012, 8:50 PM EDT

    Clay Buchholz, Bobby Valentine

    Clay Buchholz is throwing in the low-90s consistently. His curveball looked plenty good today. He’s been inconsistent with his changeup, but that hardly explains the 9.09 ERA. Buchholz gave up five more runs in 3 2/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision in what ended up being a 17-inning loss to the Orioles. He’s allowed at…

  13. The Red Sox are calling up Aaron Cook

    May 2, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    Aaron Cook, Andruw Jones

    Rob Bradford of WEEI is reporting that the Red Sox are planning on promoting Aaron Cook to the majors. The decision is today, he’d actually arrive in the next few days. The key here is that if he wasn’t on the big league roster today — or if he didn’t have an agreement in place with…

    Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish gestures to fans during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Rangers 4, Blue Jays 1: I think it’s safe to say that, after a couple of rocky starts to begin the year, Yu Darvish is starting to get comfortable. He struck out nine Blue Jays while giving up a single run in seven innings. The homer was by the incredibly hot Edwin Encarnacion, who has…

    Royals celebration

    Royals 8, Indians 2: I keep hitting refresh on the scoreboard but nothing changes so, apparently, this is correct and the Royals actually won a game.  Billy Butler hit two homers as Kansas City beat up on Ubaldo Jimenez. Mets 5, Marlins 1: David Wright hit a two-run homer, giving him 735 RBI in his…

    If you still haven’t had quite enough — and some of those Clay Buchholz changeups were awfully tasty — here are a few more Fenway features for you: First, the recap of the celebration. Next, a slideshow of pics from the festivities. Because Kevin Millar’s frosted tips never get old. And here’s CSNNE.com’s slideshow of…

  17. Clay Buchholz gives up five homers in loss to Yankees

    Apr 20, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    Clay Buchholz, Eric Chavez

    Two pitchers have given up five homers in a game this season. Both have been Red Sox. Clay Buchholz joined Josh Beckett in the exclusive club Friday, surrendering five solo homers in a 6-2 loss to the Yankees on the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park’s opening. On the plus side, Buchholz’s start was pretty good for…

  18. Tigers roar back in ninth, 11th to beat Red Sox 13-12

    Apr 8, 2012, 6:03 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Alex Avila got barely a sliver of a 2-2 curveball that would have ended the game. On the next pitch, he got a whole lot more of another curve, hitting a walkoff homer to give the Tigers a 13-12 victory over the Red Sox and a three-game sweep in Detroit. Meanwhile, the Red Sox’s worst-case…

  20. Rangers sign Derek Holland to five-year, $28 million deal

    Mar 20, 2012, 10:49 AM EDT

    Derek Holland

    Derek Holland and the Rangers have agreed to a five-year, $28 million contract that includes team options for 2017 and 2018, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star Telegram. Holland wasn’t even arbitration eligible yet and Texas had him under team control through 2015 already, so the five-year contract cancels out his previous…

  21. Jonathan Papelbon likes Daniel Bard as a starter

    Feb 18, 2012, 3:16 PM EDT

    Daniel Bard, Jonathan Papelbon

    Jonathan Papelbon‘s exit from Boston was expected to clear the way for Daniel Bard to step in as the Red Sox’s closer, but the 26-year-old has made the move to the rotation instead and Papelbon, speaking from Phillies camp in Florida, thinks that might well be for the best: I actually had a long talk…

  22. Clay Buchholz is healthy, aiming for 200-inning season

    Feb 16, 2012, 3:07 AM EDT

    buchholz-120215.standard[1]

    Some good news for Red Sox fans: Clay Buchholz is healthy, and he’s feeling so good that he’s hoping to top 200 innings for the first time in his career. The right-hander, an All-Star in 2010, pitched only 82 2/3 innings in 2011 and missed more than half the season with a back injury. Boston…

  23. Red Sox GM says landing free agent pitcher is “unlikely”

    Feb 1, 2012, 9:23 PM EDT

    oswalt ap

    The Red Sox have been linked recently to free agent pitchers Edwin Jackson and Roy Oswalt. But E-Jax apparently has better deals on the table from other clubs and Oswalt is thought to prefer a team in the middle of the country, like the Cards or Rangers. Which leads us to the following report… According…

  24. The Blue Jays wanted Clay Buchholz for John Farrell

    Nov 25, 2011, 11:20 AM EDT

    John Farrell

    We learned the other day that the Red Sox tried to talk the Blue Jays into letting them interview John Farrell for their open manager’s job.  The Blue Jays, however, have a policy of not giving permission for their people to interview for lateral moves, so that didn’t go anywhere. But the Jays weren’t totally closed…
