Because good relievers can come out of nowhere.

Author’s note: The introduction was composed during the All-Star break before the Red Sox bullpen took a big fat dump in Los Angeles and Colorado.

On the final day before the All-Star break, I looked over my scorecard in the sixth inning, wondering how Alex Cora would navigate the final innings. He ultimately turned to Brayan Bello and Brennan Bernardino for the seventh before handing...

Minor Lines 7/23/24: A Rough Day

Four games, four losses for the farm.

The Red Sox stopped their four-game losing streak late Tuesday night, but unfortunately, troubles continued on the farm. None of these games were even particularly close, so the Red Sox could’ve stood to lend a run or two to a few of these teams. Of course, it doesn’t work like that, so let’s get into it!

First win in the “second half”

Happy Wednesday!

The Red Sox finally got a win after the All-Star Break. And what a win! Cooper Criswell played the roll of the stopper. The offense clicked.

It’s day baseball today with a 3:10 PM ET start time and Nick Pivetta on the mound.

Thursday is an off day and then the Yankees come to town for the weekend. The Red Sox, 54-46, are 4.5 games behind New York entering play today so that series could loom...

If you want juice in the bullpen, Miller is the guy.

Welcome to Smash or Pass, Trade Deadline edition! In this series, we’ll discuss players who might be available at the trade deadline, whether they’d be a good fit for Red Sox, and what it would take to get them. Next up, some juice for the bullpen.

Who is he and where does he come from?

This is Mason Miller, a right-handed pitcher from the Oakland Athletics. Currently, he’s being used...

Red Sox 6, Rockies 0: Exhale

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The sky is not falling, it just seems closer in Colorado

Everybody take a deep breath. The Red Sox are back in the win column. Things started early with a Rafael Devers RBI double and Tyler O’Neill two run homer, and the Red Sox never looked back from there. Exhale.

Later in the game, with the Red Sox leading by six runs, Rafael Devers dove for a ground ball and stayed down. My first thought was about Trevor Story, who injured his shoulder on a similar...

Sometimes bad and sometimes extra good

Are the Red Sox buyers or sellers? Are they picking a lane? After four straight losses they’re now apparently leaning towards the dreaded “both” again. This is a good team. With flaws. And some career years happening. Don’t waste Jarren Duran, Connor Wong, Devers, Houck, etc.

It’s another lefty. The lefty lineup is back out there.

Kris Bryant is still alive! And playing baseball!...

For John Henry’s Red Sox, Big Deadline Deals Used To Be The Norm

As John Henry’s tenure has progressed, the Red Sox have gotten less active at the deadline.

As we wait for the dam to break and for moves to start flying across Major League Baseball ahead of next week’s trade deadline (this feels like a year where everything is going to happen at the last second), I thought it would be a good time to look back at the major trades the Sox have made in the John Henry era.

The only rules here are...

Red Sox News & Links: Breslow Still Open to Selling at Trade Deadline

News and notes from around Red Sox Nation.

Not a great time for a season-high four-game losing streak! After the Red Sox surged into postseason position by posting the best record in baseball for nearly two months, most people assumed that Craig Breslow would be a buyer at the trade deadline, even if he only ended up adding at the margins. But according to MLB sources, the Red Sox still have not ruled out selling pieces like Tyler O’Neill, Nick...

But also a holiday

And happy birthday to Number 5 himself: Nomar Garciaparra!

Another brutal loss for the Red Sox. Four games into the tough second half and Boston is yet to record a win. But there’s another game tonight with a chance to win.
