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.
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.
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.
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.
From Cy Young to Jon Lester, here are the rankings of every no-hitter in Red Sox history on the eve of the 2020 season opener.
ESPN's Jeff Passan is reporting that Mookie Betts and the Los Angeles Dodgers are "deep into negotiations on a long-term contract."
Eduardo Rodriguez was supposed to be the Opening Day starter for the Red Sox in 2020. COVID-19 had other plans.
Two days after the team announced the signing of Zack Godley, offseason signing Collin McHugh has opted out of the 2020 MLB season.
Seven years removed from his last big league appearance, Daniel Bard is back in the show. The Red Sox former set-up man had his contract added to the Rockies 40-man roster on Friday.
The Red Sox added some much needed pitching help late Friday afternoon, signing 30-year-old free agent Zack Godley
Still starved for arms, the Red Sox placed three pitchers on the injury report Wednesday morning.
Now here we are, two years later, and suddenly Martinez regards himself as a DH. Hmmm. How convenient. In case you missed it, baseball will employ a universal DH this year – that means in both leagues – and the rule will almost certainly carry over into the next bargaining agreement between players and owners. The days of pitchers batting for themselves have likely gone the way of the payphone, so guys like Martinez no longer need to be so disingenuous.
By Sean Sylver, 98.5 The Sports Hub Just weeks after wrapping up The Last Dance, Michael Jordan’s tribute to Michael Jordan, ESPN’s 30 for 30 series took the DeLorean back to the late 90's last night with Long Gone Summer, a recounting of MLB’s historic summer of 1998. The home run chase between Mark McGwire and…
So here’s the question: if and when MLB finally gets around to issuing the report on the 2018 Red Sox, will Cora now be subject to greater discipline than either Luhnow or Hinch, who could each be back in the game as soon as next year?
Translation: the pandemic and its effects would have major free agency ramifications for a player who has been intent on going to the market from seemingly the day he set foot in the big leagues. And while the likelihood is that Betts would choose a one-year contract and hit the market when all economies are healthier, could the offer like the one the Red Sox presented him last spring be back in play?
The MLB investigation into the Red Sox is finished according to Rob Manfred. So, when will we see the results?
David Price (and those like him) makes his $31 million annually, fully guaranteed, and takes an eternity between pitches. And then, when the notion of the pitch clock comes up, he doesn’t merely hold on to the ball. They hold on to the ball and defiantly tell you that they have no intention of changing, directly spitting into the face of the person who matters most: you.
It feels more like a formality than anything else at this point, but Major League Baseball officially announced a delay for Opening Day Monday afternoon.
Following a call between MLB teams and the commissioners office, the league is going forward with a number of scheduling changes in light of the Coronavirus pandemic.
With their pitching depth already thin and Chris Sale's status for the beginning of the year up in the air, the Red Sox have added an arm, signing 32-year-old Colin McHugh.
After having three separate doctors look at Chris Sale's elbow MRI, it has been determined the 30-year-old doesn't need Tommy John surgery right now.
After having an MRI following elbow soreness on Tuesday, Chris Sale's status remains up in the air. The Red Sox have sent the result to a third doctor for analysis.
It looks like Chris Sale will be shut down for the second time since Red Sox Spring Training started 21 days ago, this time with an elbow issue.
By Alex Barth, 985TheSportsHub.com In case you forgot, half of Boston's major pro sports teams find themselves in the crosshairs of a league investigation. The Patriots and Red Sox are both accused of using video equipment to steal signals and gain an unfair advantage. With the Patriots, the accusations stem from a Dec. incident where…
