What to expect from Red Sox infield prospect Brainer Bonaci in 2022

Red Sox infield prospect Brainer Bonaci is one of 28 minor-leaguers participating in the team’s Winter Warm-Up minicamp this week. Of the 28 players on hand at the Fenway South complex in Fort Myers, Fla., Bonaci is one of just three prospects the Sox acquired via international free agency.

Red Sox Trade Lookback: Jose Canseco traded back to Oakland for John Wasdin

Way back Wasdin, that is.

As I talked about last weekend, we are going to try to be covering more history with the Boston Red Sox with notable anniversaries around the team. That was within a 25th anniversary post about the signing of Steve Avery, and we’re going back to that year with another big transaction to try and bolster the pitching staff.

But before we get to that, we should start with the original acquisition of Jose Canseco, who would be the departing portion of this...

OTM Open Thread 1/27: It is Thursday

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Thursday! While there has been some progress with the negotiations to end the lockout, the season hasn’t been saved yet. No hockey or basketball today. Talk about what you want, revel in the Ortiz news, and be good to one another.

Unlike the other veterans around him, he should have to earn his spot in the rotation.

Prior to the lockout going into effect, the Boston Red Sox were, much like many other teams around the league, quite busy adding to their roster. Although they didn’t add the quality of starting pitcher that some of us perhaps expected and certainly hoped for, they added a trio of veteran arms to join their rotation. One, James Paxton, will be on the shelf...

Despite being born and raised on opposite sides of the country, Triston Casas and Nick Yorke share something in common in that they are both former first-round draft picks of the Red Sox.

David Ortiz is getting his due, and BreakingT is celebrating.

For most baseball fans, thanks to the lockout there is really nothing to celebrate in the baseball world. Instead, people are left to just hope that the drips of news regarding negotiations for a new CBA will soon turn into a report saying the two sides are close to a deal. But for fans of the Boston Red Sox, we got a legitimate baseball thing for which we can be ecstatic on Tuesday when...

Free Agent Lookback: Cody Ross

Cody Ross gave the Red Sox some fun in 2012, a season in which fun was hard to find.

The 2012 Boston Red Sox were not a very good team. Fresh off the collapse of 2011, this was the team that Bobby Valentine helmed for a year before being fired. The Red Sox went just 69-93 and finished in last place in the American League East for the first time since 1992 and the first time ever under the five-team-per-division alignment.

However, mixed into...

A larger than life figure, David Ortiz represented many of the great little things in baseball

Set Number: X72074 TK4

And made an incalculable impact on so many baseball fans in Boston and beyond.

As I’m sure you know if you’re reading this, David Ortiz was officially elected to the Hall of Fame on Tuesday night. It was no sure thing, even in the hours leading up to the announcement, but by the end of the night the Boston Red Sox legend was the lone player voted in by the BBWAA. It’s clearly well-deserved, as Ortiz was one of the best hitters of his generation even taking away...

Happy Wednesday! If this is your only source of news: David Ortiz is a first ballot Hall of Famer! He’s being inducted in Cooperstown on July 24, 2022. Yup, the anniversary of a legendary 2004 game that may have turned the season around. The Bruins are in Colorado playing the Avalanche at 10:00 PM ET.

Everyone has their “the one that got away” story. The great love that could have been. For the Minnesota Twins, David Ortiz was that love. For Red Sox Nation, David Ortiz was everything. Coming to Boston changed not only David Ortiz’s life, but he help change history for not just a city, or fans, but for an entire storied franchise. (Gary Washburn; The Boston Globe)

He is the lone inductee for this year’s class.

David Ortiz is getting a plaque in Cooperstown. Almost 19 years to the day after the Boston Red Sox took a chance on the recently cut slugger from the Minnesota Twins, largely on the word of Pedro Martinez, one of the most important players in the history of the Red Sox franchise is getting his well-deserved spot in the Hall of Fame. Ortiz is going to be the only member of his class to make it into the Hall this year after receiving...

Red Sox Top Prospect Voting: Marcelo Mayer is the next big thing

Marcelo Mayer | Kelly O’Connor

Last summer’s first round pick is just getting started.

Unlike most years we do this, there wasn’t a clear number one prospect for this year’s list, with two players having a fair claim to the title. Triston Casas, as we know, ended up getting the nod, and did so by what was frankly a surprising margin. That made the vote for number two fairly easy, and while this one was actually closer than I expected for a bit, ultimately Marcelo Mayer was able to...
