Dombrowski: Slow start not Farrell's fault

Though the Red Sox have performed below expectations through the first quarter of the season, president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski doesn't think manager John Farrell is the reason.

Marco Hernandez To Undergo Shoulder Surgery

Red Sox infielder Marco Hernandez will undergo surgery to repair his injured left shoulder on Friday and is likely to miss the remainder of the regular season, tweets Tim Britton of the Providence Journal. Hernandez has been on the disabled list due to a left shoulder subluxation since May 4. The 24-year-old Hernandez hasn’t solidified himself as a regular big league contributor to this point in his career, but he’s been a useful utility option for the Sox since making his MLB debut last...

Red Sox vs. Rangers lineup: Can Boston crash the Andrew Cashner party?

What does the orb say?

The up-and-down Red Sox (22-21) welcome the red-hot Texas Rangers (24-21) tonight at Fenway Park for the first game of a three-game series and six-game homestand (7:05 p.m., NESN).

Texas just came off a 10-game winning streak, and they’re always pesky against Boston. Reigning Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello (4.23 ERA), suffering through a “slightly disappointing year,” per Over the Monster site manager Matt Collins’s series preview, will look to get back on...

The Red Sox Could Be On The Verge Of Firing John Farrell

In the past four seasons I feel like I’ve heard one million criticisms of Red Sox manager John Farrell. Some have been warranted and some of course, haven’t. It seems like everyday that I talk to someone who wants him fired and that has been the case for a long…

Power-Hitting 1B Sam Travis Promoted From Pawtucket

Maybe this will jump-start the anemic Red Sox power stats. Sam Travis, one the most talented position players in the organization, has been called up from AAA Pawtucket to the big club. The 6', 210-pound Travis is currently the #3 prospect in the Sox farm system and has been on a tear in May. He's hitting .333 for the month—and on the year overall, he has 4 HRs and 14 RBIs in 33 games. Travis (a 23-year-old 2nd round pick in 2014) will likely face left-handers in place of Mitch...

Sam Travis promoted to Boston; Hector Velazquez optioned to Pawtucket

The first base prospect is comin’ on up.

Red Sox fans have been clamoring for one of the organization’s top prospects to be called up for the better part of a month. Well, they’re sort of getting their wish. Rafael Devers is still a little ways away from the majors, but we’ll be getting a nice consolation prize with Sam Travis’ promotion to the majors. The move was announced on Tuesday, and Hector Velazquez will be optioned to Pawtucket as a corresponding move on the active...

David Ortiz Suggests Evil Empire Was Behind 2009 Leak

David OrtizIn an interview with WEEI Radio, Red Sox legend David Ortiz seems to hint that the Yankees—or at least powerful forces in Gotham City—were behind a 2009 New York Times leak of his name appearing on a PED list. Said Ortiz, "What happened in 2009, when they threw my name out there, I always sit down and think about what was the reason for them to come out with something like that? The only thing that I can think of, a lot of the guys from the Yankees were getting caught. No...

Report: Red Sox players feel John Farrell does not back them enough in media

The Boston Red Sox have far too talented of a roster to be hovering around the .500 mark this far into the season, and that typically does not bode well for the manager. If the team can’t turn things around in the coming weeks, John Farrell could be on his way out.In a column that examines why Farrell is planted firmly on the hot seat, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports explained how Farrell has not always been popular in the clubhouse — even dating back to when the team won the World Series in...

Are Patented Sox Smear Tactics Emerging On Farrell?

(USAToday Sports)Have you noticed that the 'fire John Farrell' talk has ratcheted up dramatically in the last few days? Also, do you think it's a coincidence that "backstories" on Farrell are appearing in the columns of various national media writers? You know, things like: "dissension among the players" and "questionable managerial tactics". Don't forget, the Red Sox owners are masters of the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) whispering campaign to get people out of Boston. It's worked...

Why go to Fenway? You can party like it's 1999

Do you miss vintage Pedro Martinez? Did you miss him entirely? Well, now's your chance to catch up.

Chris Sale is the best reason to go to Fenway Park since… when, exactly, do you think?


It could be as recently as last year, during David Ortiz’s historic farewell season. It could be a little bit further back, in the surprising, wonderful 2013 championship season. It could be the blessed year of our lord two thousand and four itself, the year the Sox became World Series champions for the...

ESPN PowerRank: Sinking Red Sox Fall Out Of Top Ten

After a 3-3 road trip, the Red Sox have fallen out of the Top Ten in ESPN's Power Ranking. Now in 12th position, Boston continues to hover just above the .500 mark—with a roster and payroll that was supposed to dominate and secure a spot in the World Series. They return home tonight with a starting rotation that has (at best) three reliable starters. They have a weak bench. They have a poor defense. And, they can't hit home runs. Not a good formula for landing in The Fall Classic. You can...

Red Sox reportedly send scouts to see Todd Frazier and Jose Quintana

Trade season is coming.

According to a recent report from CBS Chicago’s Bruce Levine, the Red Sox sent top scouts to see potential trade targets Jose Quintana and Todd Frazier. The trade deadline is still a couple months away, but Boston is being proactive about two potential areas of need.

We’ll start with Frazier, because he seems to be the more logical option of the two. The righty plays third base, which has obviously been the biggest hole on the roster all season. Pablo Sandoval has...
