John Farrell: ‘I don’t know that we ever truly lost faith in the talent of Clay’

The first half of the season went about as poorly as one could possibly imagine for Clay Buchholz. His 5.91 ERA before the All-Star break was higher than any season of his career in which he had thrown at least 80 innings. Even out of the All-Star break, things did not immediately improve, as trade […]

Eduardo Rodriguez Is Sliding Back Into Relevance

By far the best development in the second half for the Red Sox is their starting pitching. It’s been stellar! As a unit, the Red Sox’s starters are fourth in the majors in both ERA and FIP. You have David Price and Drew Pomeranz righting the ship after a rocky start with the team, Rick Porcello continuing his excellence, and while Steven Wright hasn’t been the same, he’s...

Red Sox Will Attend Tim Tebow's August 30th Workout

Tebow As PatWhy the Red Sox would bother to attend Tim Tebow's workout for MLB scouts is beyond us. The 29-year-old former NFL QB has not played baseball since his Junior year in high school—that would be way back in 2005. The former Jet and Bronco (and—for about 30 seconds—Patriot) is working out with former major leaguers to break into baseball as an outfielder. We're sure...

(AP Photo)Clay Buchholz is making it tough on the Red Sox regarding the composition of the starting rotation.

Andrew Benintendi shares how he made great catch

Andrew Benintendi’s home run-robbing catch Monday was an immediate nominee for play of the year. But how exactly does a 22-year-old rookie outfielder pull off such a feat? The catch helped the Boston Red Sox seal a 6-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays, and prevented things from getting too close for comfort — Boston led just 3-0 at the time, and the shot would’ve plated...

Andrew Benintendi makes unbelievable catch to steal a homer against the Rays

Boston Red Sox rookie outfielder Andrew Benintendi made a catch that was just absolutely absurd. The ed Sox are on the road in Tampa, and with a runner on first in the eighth inning of Monday night’s game, Rays second baseman Logan Forsythe hit one to deep left that was certainly on its way out of the park. Benintendi had other plans, and made an amazing leaping effort to rob...

Pablo Sandoval Needs To Return To Form With David Ortiz Retiring, John Henry Says

It sounds as though the Boston Red Sox haven’t given up on Pablo Sandoval just yet. The third baseman had a rough 2015 campaign after signing a five-year, $95 million contract with the Red Sox and appeared in just three games in 2016 after losing his starting job to Travis Shaw and undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery in May.
