RED SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

For Red Sox, Getting Clayed is Now Officially a Good Thing

Look, I made this silly-ass meme back when Clay Buchholz was pitching, as Robert California might say, like “some ineffectual, privileged, effete, soft-penis debutante.” It made me laugh and, hey, any excuse to work Caddyshack into the mix. Now, however, the joke may be on me. Since a rather inauspicious start, The Face That Launched A Thousand Nightmares is suddenly pitching...

Recalling Boston's First DH—Orlando Cepeda

Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda played 17 seasons in the big leagues—mostly with the Giants (nine years). But in his penultimate season of 1973, he was the very first Designated Hitter for the Boston Red Sox. When American League owners decided on the DH rule, the 35-year old Cepeda was given a new lease on baseball life. Cepeda played in 120 games for Boston that year, and produced...

Hanley's Hand May Land Him On Disabled List

(NESN)Hanley Ramirez is back in Boston today for further tests on his injured left hand. He was hit by a line drive last Wednesday, and has not played since. Initial tests indicated (CATScan, X-Rays) that the hand was not broken, but further discomfort indicated the need for more testing—specifically an MRI. The team needs to make a decision soon, so the left-fielder may wind up...

Although Boston sits 10 games under .500 (33-43) and nine games back in the American League East entering Sunday, Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino still fully expects the club to turn things around this season. “There’s no reason, and no requirement, that we throw a white...

Even Mookie Betts Finds Rick Porcello’s Starts Forgettable

Last night, something truly wondrous happened: Multi-millionaire Rick Porcello took the hill for the Red Sox and we didn’t lose. Rick did do his best to keep the Rays in the game, however, generously allowing them to tie the game after the Sox clawed out an early lead thanks to runs driven in by the likes of Jackie Bradley Jr and Alejandro De Aza. The game ended up going into...

Boston Red Sox need to play Jackie Bradley Jr.

Okay, first off, don’t laugh. At least for the time being, Boston Red Sox outfielder, Jackie Bradley Jr., needs to be in the lineup on a regular basis for the team if they want to succeed. Yes, Bradley does have just a .133 batting average on the season but … Okay, did you get the laughing out? Good, because this is something that should happen. Let’s not sugarcoat it. The...

Red Sox GM: Team could add major league pieces at deadline

Ben Cherington isn’t ready to start the fire sale just yet. In fact, the Boston Red Sox general manager doesn’t seem all that interested in having one this season. While Cherington is cognizant of the Red Sox’s less-than-ideal situation, the optimistic GM said Thursday morning on WEEI’s “Dennis & Callahan” that it’s still entirely possible Boston could add pieces...

Dustin Pedroia will return from injury 'as fast as I can'

By Ricky Doyle Dustin Pedroia is eyeing a speedy recovery. The Red Sox placed Pedroia on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain before Thursday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park. It’s a huge blow to the Red Sox, but the second baseman is hopeful the injury won’t sideline him for too long. “You guys know me,” Pedroia said. “I’ll be...

For the love of God, don't trade Clay Buchholz

Red Sox fan gives foul ball to young child (Video)

A teenage Boston Red Sox fan was given a foul ball by a ball boy, but passed it along to a young child rather than keeping it for himself during the fourth inning of Wednesday night's game. We can only speculate why the fan gave up the ball, but it was a generous act of kindness. Well done.Video via MLB. This post appeared first on Holdout Sports.

Boston Red Sox lose Hanley Ramirez on play that perfectly sums up their season

Even though the Boston Red Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 on Wednesday, they still remain in last place in the American League East with a record of 32-41, which puts them 8 1/2 games back of the first place Tampa Bay Rays.

Joe Kelly Continues His Season of Struggle

The Red Sox came home to what was supposed to be Friendly Fenway, however with Joe Kelly on the mound it didn’t seem so friendly.  Kelly’s continued struggles put the Sox in a hole early and the offense wasn’t potent enough to have his back.  The Sox continue to struggle against AL East teams which makes it basically impossible to make any move out of the basement in the...

Shame on me this time. After watching the Red Sox take two of three from the reigning AL champs over the weekend, while outscoring them 24-12, I thought we’d turned a corner. Stop laughing; I’m serious. I thought they night actually strap on the big pants and play like they truly wanted to give us something to live for down the stretch. Well, you got me, Red Sox.

The Time Is Now For Brian Johnson

The Boston Red Sox have scuffled throughout the majority of the 2015 season. They can’t string consistent pitching performances together, and when they do, it seems they can’t get the bats going to put runs on the board. The Red Sox are 31-40 and coming off a series where they took 2 of 3 in Kansas City against the 2014 American League Champions. They would’ve swept the Royals...
