    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…

    Oct 30, 2013, 12:38 PM EDT

    World Series Cardinals Red Sox Baseball

    BOSTON — It’s certainly the biggest start of Michael Wacha‘s life too, but Wacha is 22 years-old and kids, God love ‘em, tend to think that they’re going to have the sun shining on them forever. John Lackey is 35 and has pretty much seen it and done it all. He’s been that kid winning…

  3. Padres drop Clayton Richard

    Oct 29, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v San Diego Padres

    San Diego would have non-tendered Clayton Richard ahead of his final trip to arbitration this offseason anyway, but the Padres cut ties before then by outrighting the veteran left-hander from the 40-man roster yesterday. Richard had the option to accept an assignment to Triple-A sans roster spot or become a free agent and he chose…

  4. 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…

  5. Jake Peavy rips umpire Dana DeMuth, calls the game-ending play “a joke”

    Oct 27, 2013, 9:03 AM EDT

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

    You mad, bro? Yeah, Jake Peavy is definitely mad about the game-ending obstruction call last night. Speaking to reporters in the clubhouse after the game, the Red Sox’ Game 3 starter was incredulous, calling home plate umpire Dana DeMuth’s ruling that Allen Craig would have scored cleanly from third base but for the obstruction of…

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

    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…

  7. Daniel Nava’s RBI single ties Game 3 up in the sixth

    Oct 26, 2013, 10:29 PM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game One

    Daniel Nava, getting a much-anticipated start in left field over Jonny Gomes, delivered a game-tying RBI single in the sixth inning. Some would argue that Cardinals manager Mike Matheny deserves half of Nava’s credit, though. The inning started off innocently enough as Shane Victorino drew a walk off of Cardinals starter Joe Kelly. Dustin Pedroia…

    Jake Peavy went into his start in Game 3 of the World Series hoping to improve on his last start in which he allowed seven runs in three innings of work against the Tigers in Game 4 of the ALCS. The Cardinals aren’t playing nice, as they quickly got to Peavy in the bottom of…

  13. 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…

  14. John Lackey confirmed as World Series Game 2 starter

    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…

  15. 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…

  17. 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…

    The American League Championship Series is 2-2. Tigers starter Doug Fister delivered six innings of one-run ball and the Detroit offense broke out in a major way in Wednesday night’s 7-3 ALCS Game 4 victory over the visiting Red Sox at Comerica Park.

    Oct 16, 2013, 8:58 PM EDT

    torii hunter getty

    Jake Peavy‘s fourth career postseason outing is off to a poor start in Detroit. A really, really poor start. Peavy made it through the first inning unscathed, but he allowed a single to Victor Martinez to open the bottom of the second and then issued a pair of walks to load the bases. Omar Infante…

  22. Overmatched Miguel Cabrera sees record on-base streak end

    Oct 15, 2013, 8:16 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera, Junichi Tazawa

    Miguel Cabrera‘s record streak of having reached base in 31 straight postseason games was snapped Tuesday when he went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the 1-0 loss to the Red Sox. Obviously, there’s no shame in that. Even Cabrera mixes in an 0-for every once in a while. But the fashion in which it happened…

  23. Red Sox set ALCS rotation, led by Jon Lester in Game 1

    Division Series - Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics - Game Two

    The Tigers escaped the ALDS against the A’s despite scoring more than three runs just once in five games.

  25. Jake Peavy finally a postseason success with Red Sox

    Oct 9, 2013, 2:18 AM EDT

    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…
