At the end of the day, here’s the point: the Red Sox have a clear and obvious need for young pitching. Tanner Houck has ability and the Red Sox have a need, and, well, there was enough there last night to make you at least take notice.
The Red Sox are hardly in a position to be picky when it comes to young talent, so take this for what it’s worth. But Bobby Dalbec is precisely the kind of player you should hate.
Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi's season from hell is officially over.
The Red Sox have added a catcher who displayed some pop in Triple-A in 2019.
If you’re looking for any sort of narrative on the Chaim Bloom Era so far, this is it: he hasn’t exactly come out guns blazing. Bloom’s moves as Red Sox GM thus far have been small, conservative and boring … which is precisely what you’d expect from a team like, say, the Tampa Bay Rays. Whether those kinds of deals can pass muster in Boston over the longer term remains to be seen, particularly if the Red Sox remain relatively invisible on the Boston sports landscape.
The Boston Red Sox made a move before the trade deadline, agreeing to send outfielder Kevin Pillar to the Colorado Rockies.
The Boston Red Sox have traded Mitch Moreland to the San Diego Padres for two prospects. Here are the full details of the trade.
Is there any way the Red Sox can address their problems swiftly enough to improve in both the short and long-term? The answer is yes. But it won’t be easy. The answer is yes. But it won’t be easy.
Given the Red Sox’ predicament – few if any prospects, bad free agent market for pitching after the season – they are in a weak position. Benintendi shouldn’t be given away. But given the emergence of Alex Verdugo, Benintendi is an obvious piece to deal for good pitching, something the Red Sox desperately need as they try to rebuild their wretched organizational pitching pool.
The Red Sox have started the unloading process.
Are they this bad? No. But they’re not going to be championship-caliber for a while, either. And Bloom knows it. So do Henry and everyone else in the organization. They’re just not going to say it because they still want you to pay attention. But the upcoming free agent market stinks for starting pitching and the Red Sox are in no real position to deal prospects, which leaves Bloom with decidedly few options.
The Red Sox will not be permitted to have fans in attendance at Fenway Park this season.
The Red Sox are a mess, folks. And there are no simple fixes here. Even if Chris Sale and Eduardo Rodriguez come back healthy next year, the Red Sox are woefully short on young talent overall and young pitching, in particular. The best way to get it is through the draft, which brings us back to the idea of tanking, whether you want to call it that or not.
Martinez? Unless or until we find out more in a world with limited media access, he has no defense or excuse. It sure feels like Captain Video pulled a Manny Ramirez in New York last weekend, refusing to hit in one of the few games where the Red Sox have had a chance this season. Whether they won or lost the game is irrelevant. The whole point, this year especially, is to try.
The Boston Red Sox have lost four in a row after a 5-1 defeat at the hands of the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. A combination of quiet bats at the top of the lineup and bad breaks for starter Nathan Eovaldi led to the loss. Eovaldi cruised through the first three innings before…
You learn more about people in failure than in success. Keep this in mind as the Red Sox spiral into oblivion as one of baseball's worst teams.
The 2020 MLB season could face a shutdown if things don't improve.
The Red Sox continued to struggle on the mound as their losing streak extended to three games with a 7-4 loss to the Mets at Fenway Park.
As they continue to try and find much-needed pitching help, the Red Sox are taking a stab at a former top-ranked high school prospect, Robert Stock.
Tony Massarotti breaks down the Red Sox debut of outfielder Alex Verdugo for 985TheSportsHub.com. How did it go in Verdugo's first at-bats?
Four days after playing its first game of 2020, Major League baseball is dealing with their first in-season outbreak of COVID-19.
Daniel Bard returned to a Major League mound for the first time in seven years Saturday, and did so in successful fashion.
The Red Sox offense is picking up right where they left off in 2019, as one of the league's best.
It didn't take long at all for Kevin Pillar to do what he does best. Watch him make a nice leaping catch against the first batter of the season.
