The Red Sox gloriously botched an attempt to stupidly retaliate at Manny Machado for a hard slide that unintentionally spiked Dustin Pedroia on Friday. Reliever Matt Barnes tried throwing a 90-mph pitch directly at Machado’s head in the eighth inning...
Things got heated between the Red Sox and Orioles after last night’s eighth inning, when Dustin Pedroia had to leave the game after being spiked by Manny Machado as he tried to turn a double play.
Former Chicago White Sox ace Chris Sale pitched yet another great game today. With his four-seamer and slider in especially nasty form, he put the golden sombrero on José Bautista and struck out 13 Toronto Blue Jays in total over eight scoreless innings in a 4-1 win for the Boston Red Sox. Sale now has an 0.91 ERA,…
Mookie Betts, the Boston Red Sox’s star outfielder, hasn’t struck out since Sept. 12 of last year. That’s a streak of 128 plate appearances without a K—the longest since Juan Pierre’s run of 147 whiff-free plate appearances in 2004, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Red Sox starting pitcher Steven Wright did not have a good night whatsoever. The knuckleballer’s start lasted just 34 pitches, during which he gave up eight runs and four dingers in the first 1.1 innings. In the first inning alone, Wright gave up six runs and two homers.
Otis Nixon, a former outfielder who spent 17 seasons on nine Major League teams, most famously on the Atlanta Braves’ worst-to-first turnaround team in 1991, is missing, according to police in Woodstock, Ga.
Pablo Sandoval’s 2016 was the nadir of his career: The Red Sox third baseman played in three games, reached base once in seven plate appearances, and went to the season-ending DL after a shoulder surgery, although he was visibly overweight by his standards and once broke his belt while taking a cut. His 2017 has…
The flu is apparently spreading through the Boston Red Sox’s clubhouse, and it’s taking down some of the team’s major players.
Is the foul ball worth the dignity you lose while trying to get it? In this instance, probably not.
Spring training is just underway, and Red Sox fans have already been given something to panic about. There’s something wrong with David Price, and although we don’t have any specifics yet, it doesn’t sound good:
With teams looking to exploit every possibility for a competitive advantage, it’s not surprising that one basic indicator of physical performance has been getting some more attention lately: sleep. The Red Sox are one team that’s taken notice, and they’re getting really into it.
Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts has never made a secret of his love of bowling—he’s said that he watches the game every Sunday when he can, he competed in the 2015 World Series of Bowling and he’s bowled two perfect games in the past four years. The guy has a profile on the U.S. Bowling Congress website.
In baseball, there is perhaps no sadder sight than that of an otherwise healthy and capable professional player struggling to do something as simple as throwing the ball a short distance. The yips are the worst boogeyman in sports, and although it’s not clear that Red Sox catcher Blake Swihart is dealing with that…
In a move that is notable mostly because it will shut up Red Sox fans just a little bit, the Sox have traded embattled pitcher Clay Buchholz to the Phillies for Josh Tobias, a prospect you’ve never heard of.
Ken Rosenthal is all over the HOT FUCKING STOVE, knocking down pots and pans and dropping his bowtie in the deep fryer. The soup is bubbling and Ken’s got the first taste:
Curt Schilling, the elite meme curator and former MLB pitcher made famous by refusing to recognize when he didn’t have a leg to stand on, said that he is considering a run for the United States Senate in 2018. This is not a new claim from him.
According to the man himself, Mo Vaughn is not much of a slugger any more. On a recent trip to the batting cages with his son, the former AL MVP says, he made contact with just three of 14 pitches—at 50 mph. Luckily, he was prepared for life after baseball when his All-Star career ended in 2003.
