      Red sox LHP Eduardo Rodriguez took a huge step to his return earlier this week in making a pretty good rehab assignment. He went seven innings, with seven Ks in a game vs. Lehigh Valley. That is a huge improvement from what his earlier rehab starts were as he showed a lack of velocity brought on by a hesitation to really let it fly. It’s been an up and down season for Rodriguez, who suffered a knee injury in Spring Training, then rehabbed but took a step back after feeling some pain in it again earlier this month. Armed with a knee...

      The offensive onslaught continues as the BoSox continue to pummel every opposing team into submission. Steven Wright was once again brilliant on the mound, tossing seven strong while allowing three runs (two earned). Meanwhile the offense did more than provide enough run support, they blew past the Rockies, came back, and blew past them again. Jackie Bradley Jr continues his hit streak as he went 2-4 in the game with a single and double–good enough to put him up to a team-leading .35–first in the AL and third in the MLB. He...

      Well it doesn’t get much better than this. David Price was solid against a good lineup, our offense kicked a$$, and Jackie Bradley Jr got yet another hit–can life get better? Oh it can–the Orioles lost and the Sox have sole possession of first. Price went seven strong while allowing three runs to pick up his seventh win of the season, and the lineup did not disappoint. Dustin Pedroia, Xander Bogaerts, David Ortiz and JBJ all had multi-hit nights as the Sox put up 12 and steamrolled over the Rockies while scoring eight...

It’s been an up and down season for Rodriguez, who suffered a knee injury in Spring Training, then rehabbed but took a step back after feeling some pain in it again earlier this month. Armed with a knee brace though Rodriguez was able to pitch to his full capability given the extra support and lack of fear for re-injury. This is a big step in getting E-Rod back into the rotation that will really help...
