The Opponent in one sentence

The Yankees have been one of the very best teams in baseball all year, but the top-heavy American League means they are settling for a Wildcard spot, and are still in a battle for home field in that game.

Down. The Yankees haven’t been playing their best baseball of late at the most important time of the year. Of...

Red Sox-Yankee Game Moved From 1:05 PM to 7:05 Due To Heavy NYC Rains

The remnants for Hurricane Florence have forced the delay of today's Red Sox-Yankee match-up from 1:05 PM to 7:05 PM. Heavy rains are expected in the New York metropolitan area for much of the day—although things should clear out by the new game time. Boston enjoys a comfortable 11.5 game lead over The Bronx Embalmers—and a win tonight would clinch the American League East division title for The Carmine Hose. The original start time was intended to accommodate for Yom Kippur—the...

This team’s flaws, real and imaginary

How much are the catcher and bullpen situations holding the team back, if at all?

I haven’t watched much Red Sox baseball in the last few weeks. There are many causes, which are primarily my fantasy team being eliminated from contention; a vacation, albeit to Mass., where the TV didn’t work, and, above all general fatigue. I have two young children. They make staying up for even portions of any game difficult. You don’t care.

By taking the last few weeks off, aside from the daily...

Tuesday’s Red Sox-Yankees game pushed back

The afternoon game is now a night game

The Red Sox and Yankees are scheduled to start a three-game series on Tuesday, one that could include the Red Sox clinching the division on the field of their arch rivals. They were supposed to have a chance to do that Tuesday afternoon, but now that will be delayed by a few hours. Boston and New York were scheduled for a 1:05 PM ET start — they were playing early because Yom Kippur begins at sundown — but rain is getting in the way. What is left of...

American League East

The Red Sox and Yankees both had Monday off ahead of the start of their series Tuesday afternoon in New York. Boston needs to win just one of these next three to clinch the division in enemy territory.

Eovaldi, Sox set for Bronx showdown

Nathan Eovaldi and the Red Sox take on the rival Yankees today at 1:05 p.m. ET. Eovaldi has pitched well at Yankee Stadium in his career, going 10-5 with a 3.85 ERA. The righty was dominant against his former team at Fenway Park on Aug. 4, allowing no runs and three hits over eight innings.

Daily Red Sox Links: One win in New York would be magical

The Red Sox just have to beat the Yankees once more to win the AL East. Plus a look at Rick Porcello’s rough second half and the welcome party for the Worcester Red Sox.

What’s one win in an ocean of them? That’s the question the Boston Red Sox must answer today. With their magic number to clinch the American League East sliced all the way down to two, all the Sox have to do is win two more games before the regular season is over to secure a divisional title and avoid playing the AL...

Mookie Betts Likely To Play On Tuesday Afternoon In Bronx—Possibly As DH

Red Sox Nation held its collective breath on Sunday after Mookie Betts left that day's game early with 'left-side tightness'. As you may recall, Betts missed a substantial period of time earlier this year (May 29th-June 11th) with a similar left-side abdominal strain. Red Sox manager Alex Cora indicated that Betts would be fine to play on Tuesday afternoon in the Bronx. Said Cora, "I took him out right away. He’s in the clubhouse right now. He’s saying he’s fine…He’ll get...

Alex Cora still has work to do down the stretch

The Red Sox don’t have much of anything to play for, but Cora’s job is still difficult

Alex Cora’s first year as the Red Sox manager has, obviously and without a doubt, been an unmitigated success. Even the most optimistic among us could have never seen a season like this, and the Red Sox have a chance to wrap up their regular season goals very soon. They need just one win in this upcoming Yankees series to clinch the division. They have a magic number of just five to clinch the best...

MLB Playoff Picture Update 9/17: Rockies reclaim the division

And the Cardinals tie it up in the wildcard

American League East

Sunday was a good day for the Red Sox. There have been a lot of good days for the Red Sox this year. They were able to squeak by with a win over Jacob deGrom and the Mets, and the Yankees couldn’t beat Thomas Pannone and the Blue Jays. As a result, the Red Sox watched their magic number fall to just two as they head to the Bronx to start a series on Tuesday. Boston needs to win just one of the next three games to clinch the...

Another check on the playoff bullpen

What’s the relief look like in October

The Red Sox are going to clinch the division, and probably at some point in the next few days. All they have to do is not get swept by the Yankees in the Bronx and they’ll have the division all wrapped up. That doesn’t mean we are without questions about this Red Sox roster. First and foremost among them, of course, is the bullpen. They spent most of this season being a very good unit, even if they never gained trust, but they’ve been undeniably...

Daily Red Sox Links: Mookie Betts, Chris Sale, David Price

In today’s links we have good news about Mookie Betts, Chris Sale is getting ready for the playoffs, David Price continues to pitch well and the Red Sox get some pinch-hit help.

Mookie Betts not expected to miss any games despite soreness

Mookie Betts is not expected to miss any time despite leaving Sunday’s 4-3 win over the New York Mets due to soreness in his side.The Boston Red Sox star was 0-for-2 with an RBI and two strikeouts before hurting himself on a throw home. He was replaced in the field by Tzu-Wei Lin.The Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham noted that Betts spent time on the disabled list earlier this season with an abdominal strain, which caused some concern that he may have re-aggravated a condition. However, Red...

Astros call up top prospect Kyle Tucker

The Astros called up top outfield prospect Kyle Tucker from Triple-A today, and that could very well mark the team’s final September promotion, manager A.J. Hinch tells reporters. Hinch added that Tucker probably won’t play much in the season’s final weeks, though with Tucker having already debuted earlier this summer and his season in Triple-A Fresno over, there’s little reason not to bring Tucker back up. The 21-year-old former No. 5 overall pick hit just .154/.254/.212 in 59...

Baseball Gods Comply, Red Sox Win, Empire Loses, Magic Number Now Two

(Getty Images) Our entreaties to The Baseball Gods apparently worked. The Red Sox beat the Metropolitans and The Evil Ones lost again to the lowly Blue Jays—so the Magic Number to clinch the American League East is down to just two. Thus, as we surmised, your 2018 Carmine Hose can wrap up the division on Tuesday afternoon in the Bronx. Today, Chris Sale started things off with three scoreless innings—allowing just one hit. In the meantime, the so-called 'un-hittable' Jacob deGrom was in...

Red Sox 4, Mets 3: Sox win behind Holt and Lin, as we all expect

But they also lost Mookie Betts.

The Red Sox had a tough task ahead of them today against Jacob deGrom, the likely NL Cy Young winner. He certainly looked every bit the part in this game, but they got one big inning against him thanks to a Brock Holt home run, and then some clutch late-game action from Tzu-Wei Lin, Holt and Andrew Benintendi. On the pitching side, Chris Sale looked good to start and the bullpen was solid, though far from perfect. However, while the Red Sox got the win,...
