Red Sox to be honored at White House on Feb. 15

It will be an eventful first few days of Spring Training for the Red Sox, as the club is expected to make a trip to the White House on Feb. 15, just two days after the first pitchers and catchers workout.

Red Sox White House visit should be resisted by more than just minority players

The Red Sox will visit the White House on Feb. 15, CEO Sam Kennedy told Dale & Keefe on Wednesday, and he used the language of decorum and norms to describe a president who respects neither. "This is an honor and a privilege to be invited to the White House," Kennedy told D&K. "We've tried not to make it a political statement. We don't see it as such. We see it as an honor to be invited." On this much we can agree: opinions on President Trump transcend politics. Criticizing him isn't about...

Sam Kennedy interview: Red Sox president explains why team doesn't view White House trip as political

It seems hard to believe, but the hyper-partisanship in Washington is only increasing, as the government shutdown continues to drag on over President Trump’s demands for his ill-conceived Border Wall –– or steel slat, or barrier, or structure, or whatever he’s calling it now. Despite that, Red Sox president Sam Kennedy says the team continues to view its White House trip as an apolitical event. On “Dale & Keefe” Wednesday, Kennedy discussed the Red Sox’ decision to visit the...

Alex Cora will have a lot of challenges in 2019

Not that there’s any reason to believe he can’t handle it

There was a lot of people on or around the Red Sox that excelled with their performance in 2018. A team doesn’t do what they do, winning 108 games and rolling through a historically great postseason field, without greatness from all levels of the organization. So many people deserved to be the one remembered most for this team. Mookie Betts won the MVP. J.D. Martinez changed the lineup. Chris Sale, when healthy, pitched as well...

OTM Open Thread 1/16: It is Wednesday

Happy Wednesday everyone. I just found out we are possibly getting hit with a major snowstorm this weekend so if you are in Maine and have information about that I wouldn’t mind hearing what you have to say. Other than that, the Celtics have a big game against the Raptors tonight and it would be nice if they didn’t look like garbage. The Bruins also have a game against the Flyers, and at this point you’re probably safer watching the B’s than the C’s. Other than that, there’s...

MLB Roundup 1/16: Corey Kluber trade rumors are back

And the Phillies are still talking a big game.

The Kluber Trade Rumors are back

Earlier in the offseason one of the bigger stories around the league were that the Indians were preparing to trade either Corey Kluber or Trevor Bauer this winter despite the fact that they are right in the middle of their contention window with one of the best one-two position player punches in the league. With Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez in their prime, it would seem that a team would want to keep as much...

Red Sox headed to White House on Feb. 15

The Red Sox are getting the White House storyline out of the way early. According to team president Sam Kennedy, the Sox are slated to make their visit to the nation's capital on Friday, Feb. 15 where they will be honored by President Donald Trump for winning the 2018 World Series. The February visit is a departure from the last time the Red Sox were invited to the White House, after their 2013 championship. That trip coincided with an April series in Baltimore. The team's Washington D.C....

Checking on the minor-league depth: Pitchers

Do the Red Sox have enough pitching depth to get through injuries?

The Red Sox continue to plug away with the offseason and we continue to count down the days for the team to report to Fort Myers to officially begin spring training. In the meantime, there’s no telling whether or not there will be a legitimate reliever added to the roster on a major-league deal before that point comes. My guess would still be that they’ll add someone at some point, but with each passing day it looks more...

Red Sox sign Daniel Schlereth to minor-league deal

More depth for Pawtucket’s bullpen.

The Red Sox continue to say they are not planning on making a big splash to supplement their major-league bullpen, but while we wait to figure out if that is real or just something they’re saying publicly to maintain leverage they are at least adding some depth to the organization. They’ve made a number of minor-league signings to boost the pitching depth of the last month, and they added another guy with a possibly familiar last name who will...

The biggest story in baseball for the last couple of weeks has been what will happen with last summer’s ninth overall pick. The Athletics knew they took a risk in drafting Kyler Murray with their top ten pick despite him wanting to play football in the fall. The A’s had no problem letting him play for Oklahoma for one last go with football before focusing entirely on baseball. Except, well, things snowballed....
