New Shirt: Yellow Sox

Celebrating the good-fortune-bringing digs.

As I’m sure everyone reading this is aware of, the Red Sox are on a bit of a roll here as we approach the end of the season. Boston has won their last seven games, putting themself atop the wildcard race and with a two-game cushion heading into this weekend’s massive Yankees series. And a symbol of this streak has been their City Connect Yellow jerseys, which they’ve worn for five of the seven wins. They’ll keep wearing them until...

Ranking Members Of Red Sox Four-Man Rotation

With the regular season rapidly coming to a close, the Boston Red Sox recently decided to pivot to a four-man rotation for the remainder of the year. In total, seven pitchers have spent substantial time in Boston’s rotation at some point this season, but the club clearly has four arms that it’s most confident in.

We will spend the next four days looking at the years that were for those levels, looking at a bunch of different categories. Each level will have top position players, starters, and relievers selected,...

The offense shall lead them

Let’s goooooo! | David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The pitching has never been the source of this team’s strength, and the bats are alive once again.

At first I was going to write that this was a Red Sox season defined by peaks and valleys, but then I remembered it was sort of one long plateau at high altitude all the way until August, at which point the team hit the edge of a metaphorical Grand Canyon and began to tumble in. The good news? After six weeks of scraping to get back...

OTM Open Thread 9/23: It is Thursday

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

LOLMets last night

Happy Thursday! Although it was a lot like Thor’s Day last night against the New York Mets. The Red Sox are off again today and the New York Yankees come to town for a series starting Friday. The yellow City Connect uniforms will make another appearance as the Sox look to make it eight straight. Talk about what you want, relive the “little league home run”, and be good to one another.

Iggy is doing it all tonight!...

Video: Chris Sale had Javy Baez so fooled on this slider

Chris Sale is known for his wicked slider. Javy Baez can attest to how dangerous it is. Sale pitched five innings and picked up the win in his Boston Red Sox’s 12-5 victory over the New York Mets on Wednesday night.

Red Sox 12, Mets 5: The Kyle Schwarber Show!

Red Sox cruise to their seventh straight win.

Kyle Schwarber! Kyle Schwarber! Kyle Schwarber! Since the deadline, Hansel Robles and Austin Davis have been solid bullpen additions, each having their good and bad moments with the former mostly outweighing the latter, and Schwaber has been on a totally different level. The Red Sox were able to snag the best offensive player at the deadline to boost this lineup for the stretch run. Let’s dive into tonight’s...
