      Sure, the Red Sox lead major league baseball in nearly every offensive category, including batting average (.286), on-base percentage (.353), slugging percentage (.472), and runs (576). And yes, they hold a 1.5-game lead in the AL Wild Card standings. But the Sox clearly still have some deficiencies, many of which were on display in their recent 4-7 stretch. On Tuesday, the team attempted to shore up one of those weaknesses by calling up 22-year-old Andrew Benintendi, the seventh overall pick in the 2015 MLB Draft. According to Dave Dombrowski,...

       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...

 This past weekend I was lucky enough to get to go to the LA and see the Sox game in person. It was a great night for baseball and the Sox. Before the game David Ortiz was honored as the Dodgers donated $10,000 to the David Ortiz foundation. Along with that  Vin Scully talked about the amazing career David has had as the big slugger finishes out the final season of his career. Meanwhile the performances were pretty solid too from the team. Steven Wright: Wright had a tremendous game going the whole nine innings and getting the shutout. Along with that the knuckleballer allowed only three hits while getting nine strikeouts as he continues to be dominant. Wright’s first complete game shutout shows just how well of a pitcher he’s...

  Here we are: after today’s series finale match-up against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Red Sox – along with 29 other teams – will enter into the All-Star break and await the second half of the 2016 season. Seems like just yesterday the season opener against the now red-hot Cleveland Indians kicked off another season of high hopes. A few nights ago, I met up with some fellow Red...
