       Yeah, I know: the titles of my pieces make me cringe too. Eff it. Newly acquired starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz makes his much anticipated debut for the Red Sox tonight against the San Francisco Giants at Fenway Park. It’s funny the way things work out sometimes. Pomeranz was, of course with the San Diego Padres before Dave Dombrowski shipped top pitching prospect Anderson Espinoza for him last week. So essentially, we don’t get to see how Pomeranz’ stuff translates to an American League club this time around. Instead,...

      A Sox prospect made national news this week, and for good reason. High-A Salem’s Michael Kopech, the 33rd overall pick in the 2014 draft, topped out at 105 mph on Wednesday. Even if that type of insane velocity isn’t sustainable, the 20-year-old Texan’s fastball is clearly a valuable weapon. After tossing five innings of one-run ball Monday, Kopech has a 0.49 ERA with 27 strikeouts in four starts this year. Yes, he’s still far away from the big leagues, but that’s pretty damn impressive. Kopech sounds determined...

      When the Red Sox take the field tonight to open up their interleague series against the San Francisco Giants for the first time since 2007, they will be greeted from the mound by a familiar face. Donning the Giants’ orange and black, 35-year-old pitcher Jake Peavy, who won the World Series in 2013 with Boston, will be facing his former team. Coming to Boston in July of 2013 from the Chicago White Sox, Peavy was part of a three-team trade in which the Red Sox at the time were mainly looking to add depth and a proven reliable pitcher to the...

Instead, he’ll be pitching against an old division rival, whom he’s had success against this season. In three games started against Los Gigantes this season, Pomeranz has pitched very well, but...

  Out of nowhere Pedro Martinez had a pretty interesting tweet. On the 17th Pedro tweeted out saying “Jose Fernandez is a special pitcher and human being and in every form you look at him you see BOSTON RED SOX.” (According his twitter @45PedroMartinez) Not something you’d expect from a hall of famer whose number was recently retired by the Sox. Everyone Red Sox fan would...
