Steve Pearce re-signs in Boston on a one-year deal

Pearce back!

The first real move of Boston’s offseason is in the books, and with it the Red Sox have brought back the World Series MVP. Steve Pearce is staying in Boston for another go at it, as he and the Red Sox agreed to a one-year, $6.25 million deal. Jeff Passan of Yahoo! was the first to report the deal, and the team later confirmed.

Red Sox re-sign Steve Pearce

The Red Sox have announced a deal to keep Steve Pearce in Boston. Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports it's a one-year, $6.25M pact. Pearce, 35, was picked up in a relatively unheralded late-June swap with the Blue Jays. He more or less took the role that had been played by Hanley Ramirez to open the year and ended up delivering more value than the Sox probably anticipated. By the end of the 2018 regular season, Pearce had compiled an excellent .284/.378/.512 batting line and 11 home runs...

FanPost Friday : Hall of Fame Voting

Let’s try for a score of “one” this week. Can we do that?

Now that Mookie Betts has rightfully conquered the AL MVP award, and left Mike Trout in the dust, and all is right in the world, it’s time for everyone’s favorite past-time.

Arguing which old-timers who retired five (plus) years ago is most deserving of having their face put on a plaque and hung up for all to see at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. With the help of Baseball Reference, we can even tell which...

2018 in Review: Brock Holt

The year that was for everyone’s favorite utility player

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 wrap up...

The Red Sox can never allow Mookie Betts to wear another uniform

There’s no amount of money too large to keep him around, whenever the time comes.

In case you missed it last night, Mookie Betts took home baseball’s top individual honor, winning the American League MVP after receiving 28 of 30 first-place votes. It was his first time winning the award, though he’s now finished in the top six in each of the last three seasons. This was, of course, the expected result, and from a fan’s perspective I’m not sure this MVP really matters. I mean,...

MLB Roundup 11/16: Christian Yelich wins National League MVP

Christian Yelich takes home the NL MVP

Mookie Betts is the American League MVP, which we learned officially last night but really knew was coming for at least a couple of months now. The same could be said for the National League side, that probably deserved more drama than it had but in reality has been a foregone conclusion since around mid-September. To no one’s surprise, Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich took home the top individual honor in the National League, taking...

Daily Red Sox Links: Mookie Betts is everyone’s MVP

Betts was the clear choice, for multiple reasons. Plus the Red Sox have fans in high places and might make some subtle offseason moves.

Mookie Betts accomplishes extremely rare feat during incredible season

Mookie Betts was named AL MVP on Thursday, capping an incredible season for the Boston Red Sox outfielder. Betts won essentially the highest individual and team honors of a season by taking home the league MVP award weeks after his team won the World Series. On top of that, Betts also won a Gold Glove award for his stellar defense as well as a Silver Slugger award for being the best hitting player at his position. According to Chris Cotillo, Betts joins Mike Schmidt (in 1980) as the only...

Mookie Betts wins the MVP

Nothing but respect for my MVP

Awards week officially came to a close on Thursday with the grand finale. Both leagues awarded their Most Valuable Player awards, and baseball’s best team was voted to have been home to the American Legue’s most valuable player. It wasn’t much of a surprise in the end, but Mookie Betts came out on top and won his first career MVP. He received 28 first place votes, with Mike Trout and J.D. Martinez getting the others.

This is the perfect end to a magical...

Christian Yelich, Mookie Betts win MVP Awards

The Baseball Writers’ Association of America announced Monday night that Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich was voted the Most Valuable Player of the National League. Meanwhile, fellow outfielder — and World Series champion — Mookie Betts took the prize in the American League. Yelich nearly pulled off a unanimous win after helping lead the Brew Crew to a stirring NL Central title. Only one first-place vote went to another player, as Mets hurler Jacob deGrom was not-unjustly rewarded...

Alex Cora has a new contract, now it’s time to keep the magic going

Alex Cora’s tenure with the Red Sox is obviously off to a tremendous start, but he has to keep it going.

You won’t find a single soul that says Alex Cora doesn’t deserve the contract extension and assumed raise the Red Sox just gave him.

To be fair, it wasn’t a big extension. The Red Sox basically just added an extra year onto his current contract, meaning he’s locked up through the 2021 season. But it was a nice little gesture of respect from the organization to the man who just...

MLB Roundup 11/15: deGrom and Snell win Cy Youngs

Or Cys Young?

Blake Snell wins the American League Cy Young

The Cy Youngs were announced on Wednesday night, and the American League was the more interesting race of the two. Really, it came down to a couple of pitchers with both Justin Verlander and Blake Snell each having strong cases. Ultimately, it came down to how important innings were for you, because Snell was dominant but only over 180 innings. I would have voted for Snell, and sure enough he was the one to take home the award,...

Red Sox sign Juan Centeno to minor-league deal

Feel the excitement

This news is a couple days old at this point, but I just straight-up missed it. On Tuesday, though, the Red So added a bit to their catching depth with a minor-league signing. As first reported by Chris Cotillo of Masslive, Boston agreed to a minor-league deal with catcher Juan Centeno.

Centeno is clearly not going to be the most exciting player acquired by the Red Sox this winter, but it is an interesting move. The Red Sox, as we’ve talked about, have three...

Alex Cora and Red Sox agree to new contract

A well-deserved extension and (presumably) raise

Alex Cora had a somewhat disappointing day on Tuesday — his first one of those in a baseball sense in a very long time — when he finished second behind Bob Melvin in the American League Manager of the Year voting. It wasn’t a major injustice or anything like that in this writer’s opinion, but it still wasn’t the ideal result from our perspective. Either way, the down times didn’t last long for Cora. Just one day after he lost out...

Red Sox announce extension with Alex Cora

The Red Sox announced Wednesday that they’re agreed to a new contract with manager Alex Cora on the heels of 2018’s World Series title. Cora’s original contract with the Sox spanned the 2018 to 2020 seasons and included a 2021 option. That 2021 season is now guaranteed, and the Red Sox have tacked on a club option for the 2022 season as well. It’s not yet clear if the new contract comes with a boost in annual salary. Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner said in a press release announcing the...
