    by Xander Clarke

      Born only six days apart, 23-year old studs Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts are set to lead the Red Sox for many years to come. The Red Sox have Bogaerts under control until 2019 and Betts until 2020, plenty of time to win a few championships. Yes that’s a plural! People really underate how good these two studs are. Bogaerts has already won a World Series when he burst on to the scene in 2013, but certainly will be looking to win another won soon along with Betts, and maybe some other young Red Sox stars such as Yoan Moncada and...

      There’s a lot of promise and excitement surrounding Red Sox starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez, and deservedly so. The 22 year old Venezuelan has the talent to be an ace, and the maturity to be one too. There will be growing pains, naturally. He’ll have some games where he gives up four or five runs in four or five innings… and that’s ok. That’s part of the game, and part of the learning process. The thing Rodriguez really needs to work on is an issue that did him in one too many times during his rookie campaign:...

      Over the last few months there has been a swelling of support to rename Yawkey Way because many feel that Tom Yawkey‘s racism is a stain on the Red Sox storied past. For the uninitiated, Yawkey Way is the main street that borders Fenway park and where Red Sox offices are currently located.   Tom Yawkey, owned the Red Sox  from 1933 to until his death in 1976,  and his wife, Jean Yawkey,  remained as majority owner until her death in 1992.  The Yawkey Trust continued to own the team until 2002.  In 1976, the city of Boston renamed...

   With less than two weeks until pitchers and catchers report, former NESN broadcaster Don Orsillo will soon start calling games for the San Diego Padres. Orsillo was immensely popular with Sox fans, so it was surprising to everyone when he was fired from NESN. No doubt Sox fans showed their support for Orsillo, as over 63,000 people signed a petition on the website change.org to keep him calling games for the 2016 season even after NESN released him. Orsillo recently talked to Corey Brock who is the Padres writer for MLB.com, on how Yankees manager Joe Girardi gave him some advice in his final week off broadcasting for the Sox. Brock wrote that, “Orsillo was told Yankees manager Joe Girardi wanted to see him.  Girardi...

Prospect Profile: Pat Light

  Back in 2012, Pat Light was a first round pick, drafted by the Red Sox as a third year college player from Monmouth University. He actually was the Red Sox’s third pick that year going number 37 overall in the first supplemental round so he might have not have garnered  as much attention as Deven Marrero or Brain Johnson who were selected by Boston...
