    This game marked a strange reversal of the last game these two teams played at Fenway Park when the Red Sox scored six runs in the bottom of the ninth inning for an 8-7 win in another Felix Hernandez more »

    I hope Rusney Castillo performs well for the Red Sox. However, the market for Cuban hitters may have overheated with the relative successes of Yoenis Cespedes in 2012, Yasiel Puig in 2013 and Jose Abr more »

    On a possible trade of Will Middlebrooks, consider the perspective of prospective trade partners. Despite hitting in a traditionally potent lineup and playing half of his games in a historically hitte more »

    Red Sox fans should temper their expectations for 21-year-old Mookie Betts. I'm always fascinated by similar statistics even if the similarity could be more random than meaningful. Compare these minor more »

    I understand your point, but Anthony Rizzo never played for the Red Sox before the firstbaseman was dealt to the San Diego Padres in the Adrian Gonzalez trade.

    After opening an 11-game homestand by splitting four games with the Houston Astros, the Red Sox will host two more AL West clubs at Fenway Park this week, facing C.J. Wilson, Jered Weaver, Garrett Ric more »

    For what it's worth, among the 30 MLB teams the Houston Astros are a close fourth from the top in homeruns and third from the bottom in wins.

    I suspect the Miami Marlins plan to contend in 2015 with a team built around Giancarlo Stanton. Therefore, an offseason trade is highly unlikely. Probably the only way Miami trades Stanton to Boston w more »

    This thread has several unflattering references to Will Middlebrooks so I offered only one of many comps to help assess Middlebrook' value going forward. I suspect the Red Sox keep giving Middlebrooks more »

    How unfair would it be for me to revive my one-time Will Middlebrooks comp of Alex Liddi, the same-sized, same-age former Seattle righthanded power-hitting prospect who was Middlebrooks' opposing star more »
