    Craig Breslow Getty

    The Red Sox announced this evening that left-handed reliever Craig Breslow will begin the season on the disabled list due to a mild left shoulder strain. While the situation was downplayed by the Red Sox for most of the spring, Breslow simply ran out of time to be ready for Opening Day. The 33-year-old was…

  8. Red Sox could non-tender Andrew Bailey

    Andrew Bailey

    Reliever Andrew Bailey‘s days with the Red Sox could be numbered. After moving to Boston in the Josh Reddick deal with the Athletics prior to the 2012 season, Bailey has made just 49 appearances in his two seasons with the Sox. He missed most of the 2012 season with a thumb injury, then had his…

  9. 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…

  10. Red Sox redefine what it means to be dynasty

    Oct 31, 2013, 12:41 PM EST

    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…

  11. Felix Doubront comes up big in Game 4 win

    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…

  12. The million fluky things that go into winning a World Series game

    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…

  13. Jarrod Saltalamacchia is having the worst of weeks

    Oct 27, 2013, 12:56 AM EST

    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…

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

    The Red Sox couldn’t hold the tie game Daniel Nava generously gave them after the sixth inning. In the bottom of the seventh, Will Middlebrooks took over at third base and Xander Bogaerts moved to shortstop in lieu of Stephen Drew. Meanwhile, lefty Craig Breslow toed the rubber to start the inning. Important details. Matt…

    Red Sox reliever Craig Breslow has been filing regular blog posts for WEEI.com throughout the playoffs and the left-hander made no exception following last night’s ugly outing, writing a lengthy article trying to explain how it all went wrong. An excerpt: As complicated and complex as this game can be at times, it can also…

  16. The Cardinals took the lead by NOT playing The Cardinal Way

    This is fun. The crazy sequence where Craig Breslow threw away the ball when he tried to get Jon Jay at third base last night?  The one that resulted in the go-ahead and what proved to be the winning run scoring?  The only reason that happened is because Jon Jay failed to play baseball The…

  17. Cardinals take Game 2 to even up World Series against Red Sox

    The World Series will head back to St. Louis all evened up. After falling in Game 1 of the World Series last night, the Cardinals bounced back tonight with a 4-2 victory over the Red Sox in Game 2. The Cardinals got on the board first with an RBI ground out from Yadier Molina in…

    David Ortiz put the Red Sox ahead in the bottom of the sixth inning with a two-run homer, but the lead didn’t last long. After John Lackey was pulled with two on and one out in the top of the seventh in favor of Craig Breslow, Pete Kozma and Jon Jay executed a double-steal before…

  19. 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…

  20. Red Sox emerge victorious in Game 6 of ALCS, will return to the World Series

    Oct 20, 2013, 12:01 AM EST

    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…

  21. Tigers pull within one run of Red Sox, but miss chance at bigger inning

    Miguel Cabrera Getty

    The Tigers pulled within one run of the Red Sox in the bottom of the seventh inning, but they squandered a chance at a bigger rally. Jose Iglesias and Torii Hunter hit back-to-back singles off Junichi Tazawa, setting up Miguel Cabrera to hit with runners at first and third and nobody out. However, the air…

  22. John Lackey and Mike Napoli help Red Sox defeat Justin Verlander in Game 3 of ALCS

    justin verlander getty

    Tigers ace Justin Verlander whiffed 10 batters and allowed just one run on four hits over eight innings in Tuesday’s ALCS Game 3 against the Red Sox, becoming the first pitcher in postseason history to fan 10 batters and yield four-or-fewer hits in three consecutive outings. But that’s not the story here. The Red Sox…

  23. Jake Peavy finally a postseason success with Red Sox

    Oct 9, 2013, 2:18 AM EST

    Jake Peavy

    In truth, a four-game series was probably the best-case scenario for the Red Sox. Sure, sweeps are great, but there’s nothing wrong with being tested a bit. And not only did the Red Sox pass their test with flying colors, but they got to use Jake Peavy in their Game 4 victory over the Rays…

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

    Oct 9, 2013, 12:58 AM EST

    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…
