2017 Red Sox Review: Doug Fister

A look back at the surprising year for Doug Fister

Welcome to the Red Sox Review series. It’s a fairly standard feature in which we will review the year that was for every player who made a decently large impact on the Red Sox this year. How do I come up with that definition? Completely arbitrarily, of course! The list of players I’m using can be seen here, and if I am missing anyone please let me know in the comments. Anyway, for the players who are included we will look at the...

The 3 biggest decisions the Boston Red Sox must make this offseason

Reports surfaced recently that the Boston Red Sox will hire Houston Astros bench coach Alex Cora as their next manager. Cora played 14 seasons in the MLB, including four for Boston from 2005 to 2008. Cora has been lauded by Astros players and coaches, along with baseball personnel around the league, and though it is only his first season as an MLB coach, the Red Sox will entrust him with the managerial reigns next season. Now that the Red Sox have straightened out the issue of manager, there...

Alex Cora Is A Solid Choice As New Red Sox Manager

For years, new Red Sox skipper Alex Cora was hailed as a 'manager-in-waiting'—a cerebral guy with natural leadership skills. During his tenure as a utility infielder for Boston, he kept his nose clean, kept his mouth shut (for the most part) and did his job—really well. He even mentored a young Dustin Pedroia during his early-season rookie slump—even though Cora would have been the default option at second base. So, can he right The Good Ship Carmine Hose—reeling from two straight...

Hey, hey, look, it’s the complete story stream here. You know, just in case you are one of the last to hitch a ride on the offseason choice wagon.

Just in case I somehow haven’t beaten it in yet, this is a work of fiction that exists within the head of me. And now all of you as well. Weird. I don’t like this feeling. Get out of my head.

How does Eduardo Rodriguez’ injury affect the Red Sox rotation plans?

Do they need to make a splash for a new starting pitcher?

Since the Red Sox were eliminated from postseason play, most of the words on this webpage have been dedicated to looking back rather than looking forward. We will continue to look back as the highs and lows of the 2017 season are still fresh in our minds, but it is also time to start looking forward to the offseason to come and what the Red Sox need to do to take the next step in 2018. Obviously, the first step was hiring a new...

Alex Cora to get three-year deal from Red Sox, per Ken Rosenthal report

More smoke, suggesting fire.

Earlier in the week, there were reports from Las Mayores that Alex Cora, the current bench coach of the Astros, would be named the new Red Sox manager after the ALCS. That report would end up getting deleted, leading to some creeping doubt that this may not be as much of a done deal as we originally thought. However, despite that one report going away, Evan Drellich and many others were reporting that Cora was the heavy favorite to get the Red Sox job and that it...

Red Sox Owners Plan To Add New Seating At Fenway

Not satisfied with another hike in ticket prices for 2018, John Henry and his out-of-towner ownership group also want to add two new areas of seating to Fenway Park—sucking further revenue out of the old ballyard. According to plans filed at Boston City Hall, the NOG (new ownership group) will add at least 25 additional seats in a new area along the left-field/third base side of the park; and move a row of first-base side seats forward and below ground in a “dugout suite”.
