Above .500 or bust!

Fenway Park is going to be a full house with all these family matters. It’s like the Red Sox lineup is full of perfect strangers. But don’t worry, they’ll take things step-by-step.

First pitch is at 4:10 PM ET on WEEI and NESN.

We suck!

Unlike the last two games when the Red Sox waited until the late innings to crack and reveal their glaring weaknesses on depth and defense, they imploded early tonight. How nice of them to get it over with quick!

The first six consecutive plate appearances had some shade of negativity for Boston, while offensively they managed just three hits all night.

Here’s the sequence that put them in an early hole for good:

Red Sox place RHP Isaiah Campbell (shoulder) on 15-day IL

Let’s hope for Houck!

The Los Angeles Angels are in town for a weekend series with the Red Sox.

Rafael Devers dodges the IL for now with Bobby Dalbec playing third base and Isaiah Campbell hitting the injured list.

First pitch is at 7:10 PM ET on WEEI and NESN.

The Boston Red Sox Need More Starting Pitchers

It’s the second week of April, and the Boston Red Sox have just four starting pitchers in their rotation. Injuries to veterans like Lucas Giolito and Nick Pivetta have depleted an already thin and unproven unit.

Red Sox News & Links: Rafael Devers’ Shoulder Injury Pops Up Again

But Garrett Whitlock is feeling good.

Boy, I’ve got a bad feeling about this Rafael Devers shoulder thing. Not the type of bad feeling you get when you hear about a pitcher’s shoulder of course, but I am worried that this is going to be the type of nagging injury that isn’t bad enough to put him on the IL, but is bad enough to dampen his production in myriad little ways. For now, though, he’s saying he just needs a couple of days off....

Once again as predicted, left my broken heart open

TGIF. What a week.

The good feelings after the West Coast swing are gone. The Baltimore Orioles are good, no question. But the Red Sox had this series won 2-1 and have only themselves to blame. Well, and a little wet weather and umpire silliness.

The Los Angeles Angels are in town for the weekend.

Friday it’s Tanner Houck vs Reid Detmers at 7:10 PM ET. If the rain clears.

Breslow can’t be serious about these platoons and FSG has to plug some holes.

Since I began writing this article, Nick Pivetta went on the IL, and then Romy Gonzalez started walking around in a splint (good news update: the wrist is not fractured). The Red Sox at this moment are a wagon rolling downhill without brakes. All of this proves my point, so I’ll get right to it: in the wake of Trevor Story’s season-ending injury, FSG...

Red Sox 4, Orioles 9: Sweep Dreams Aren’t Made Of This

An absolutely frustrating end to this series.

As the mist and fog descended on Fenway Park, a big game loomed. This has been an extremely frustrating homestand after a more than decent start to the season. Could the Red Sox finally win on home turf or would the O’s put up an onslaught once again?

Game 13: Orioles at Red Sox

Stop the Sweep

All of a sudden the Red Sox, returning to Boston 7-3, are looking at being swept for the first time this season. A loss tonight will drop them to just 1 game over .500. A place the 2022 and 2023 teams were very familiar with.

But here to stop that is Garrett Whitlock. The converted reliever (kinda?) has made two trips through the rotation so far, combining for 9.1 innings with 12 strikeouts, 4 walks, and 1 run allowed. He’s looking to make it three in a row and start...

But it was a tough day on the farm.

That Red Sox game sucked, right? Well, what if I told you it was about the same in the farm, with some slight exceptions? Read if you dare... no, please read, I spent time on this!

Worcester: L, 2-3 (BOX SCORE)

At first glance, maybe that Naoyuki Uwasawa transaction could be second guessed... but meh, small sample size. Uwasawa was unlucky enough to have three hits from the five runs he gave...

Total eclipse of the bullpen

Happy Thursday. Oof. Was the baseball temporarily replaced with a wet fish last night? Consistent strike thrower Chris Martin: wild. Fielders: unable to hold onto the ball. Umpire: also bad and not helping the situation!

After the West Coast swing the pitching was due for regression but that was pretty wild.

The Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles wrap up the series tonight at 7:10 PM ET. It’s not “weather...

The Anatomy of An Inning: Brayan Bello Attacks the A’s

Stephen Brashear-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back to another edition of The Anatomy of An Inning. My name is Jacob Roy, and I pretend to know pitching better than the pitchers themselves. If you’re new here or need a reminder of what this is all about, I take an inning from the previous week or so and break it down, one pitch at a time. Each pitch should have a purpose, I’m looking at each of them individually to try to go beyond the box score and tell the full story.
