The Over The Monster Podcast-What now?

Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

In this episode of the show Keaton and I explore if the team’s recent performance makes them buyers or sellers at the deadline.

On today’s episode of the show Keaton and I tackle the big question following the embarrassing series in Baltimore—should the Red Sox be sellers at the trade deadline. In order to answer this question we dig into who is in front of them competing for the Wild Card, as well as who they even have to sell. I won’t spoil our...

OTM Open Thread 7/22: It is Monday

Happy Monday everyone. Things are, well, pretty brutal for the Red Sox and I think I picked a good weekend to mostly be away from baseball. They are running out of time to turn things around and if it’s going to happen it has to be right now. That means having a strong series against the Rays, which starts on Monday. They’ll have Eduardo Rodriguez on the mound for Monday’s game to take on old friend Jalen Beeks. First pitch is...

Red Sox showing interest in three relievers

Two big ones and a more mid-tier option.

After this past weekend’s disastrous series loss to the league-worst Orioles, it is fair to wonder just in what direction the Red Sox should go at this year’s trade deadline. Just by the standings, where they are three games out of a playoff spot, it seems like an easy decision to buy. However, given the state of their farm system — improving, but far from a finished product — and more importantly the lack...

That was just awful. In a season full of awkwardly bad games, this one may be among the most awkward.

First impressions are everything, or so they say. When you apply for a job, you are supposed to dress nice, show what would make you a model employee, and otherwise be a pleasant person to be around. When meeting a person for the first time, you should be friendly, smile, and shake their hand with a firm grip (but not too firm).

In baseball, you should...

Andrew Cashner would have sat out if traded to undesirable team

Back in May, right-hander Andrew Cashner suggested to Dan Connolly of The Athletic that he’d consider sitting out the rest of the season if the Orioles sent him to an undesirable destination by the July 31 trade deadline. Cashner, whom Baltimore traded to Boston last weekend, confirmed to Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com that he indeed would have held out through year’s end had the Orioles dealt him somewhere he didn’t want to go. “I mean what I said,” he told Cotillo. “This is...

Wade Boggs sides with fellow Hall of Famer Eckersley in David Price feud

Baseball is set to hold its annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Cooperstown on Sunday. One of the biggest storylines is a rift between Red Sox ace David Price and former Boston pitcher Dennis Eckersley. The spat won’t die down with Price going tit-for-tat with Eck, and the latter indicating that he has absolutely no intention of clearing the air in a face-to-face meeting. Meanwhile, Eckersley is in Cooperstown with other Hall of Famers to celebrate the new class. Former teammate and...

Red Sox release Eduardo Nunez

The Red Sox have released infielder Eduardo Nunez, Chris Cotillo of masslive.com was among those to report. Nunez was designated for assignment Monday after a dreadful (.228/.243/.305, 36 wRC+) start to the 2019 campaign, and is now eligible to sign with any team for the pro-rated league minimum. With Nunez long a productive utility player, if defensive liability, over the course of his 10-year MLB career thus far, his recent output, on the heels of a -0.3 fWAR 2018 season, might relegate...

Red Sox activate Nathan Eovaldi off IL, send Ryan Weber to Triple-A

The Red Sox activated Nathan Eovaldi from the 60-day injured list on Saturday, per the Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham. Optioning Ryan Weber to Triple-A will be the corresponding roster move. The team announced the moves as well. Eovaldi will step into the closer’s role, as has been the plan coming out of Boston since the beginning of this month. Eovaldi certainly has the chops to cover the back-end innings for the BoSox, but the decision was surprising because of Eovaldi’s stated...

Red Sox “monitoring” José Abreu market

Dave Dombrowski has long admired Jose Abreu. The @RedSox are among a few teams monitoring Abreu’s availability. He might be most impactful bat on the market if @whitesox we’re willing to deal him. Could trade him and re-sign him but value as a rental is limited.
