Notes On Sunday’s Improbable Win

by Matt on May 2, 2011

in Red Sox

The Red Sox finally pulled out a close one on Sunday.  Carl Crawford managed what seemed like his first hit of the season.  It wasn’t.  It was his seventeenth.  The Jed Lowrie was on third base at the time and there were two outs in the bottom of the ninth making Crawford’s hit of the [...]

An Optimistic Oakland Split

by Marc on April 21, 2011

in Red Sox

The Red Sox split their mid-week two-game series in Oakland, but there are reasons to be hopeful about both contests, regardless of outcome. Specifically, the performance of John Lackey continued the recent trend that was discussed earlier in the week–that of the Red Sox starting pitching finally performing like it is supposed to–and success against [...]

Game 15 Ramblings

by Sully on April 19, 2011

in Red Sox

Success against Toronto is nothing new to Daisuke Matsuzaka, so it’s best not to read too much into this one, a game the Red Sox took 9-1. That said, after his first two starts of the season, even the most sober-thinking fans and writers seemed to be questioning whether he still had the ability to [...]

Why Lowrie Needs To Play

by Marc on April 18, 2011

in Red Sox

Jed Lowrie went 4-for-5 today, hitting sixth in the Red Sox lineup in between lefties David Ortiz and Carl Crawford. He hit a home run and drove in four runs on the day in Boston’s 9-1 victory over the Jays (their third straight win). That alone is not why he should be the team’s primary [...]

Daily Links – The The 25 Edition

by Matt on March 28, 2011

in Red Sox

They say the best people continue learning throughout their lives.  I’m trying to do the same.  For example, I’ve learned that if you like being sick, have kids.  My two year olds are walking, pooping petri dishes full of fun diseases.  Their latest is a barking cough which, because two year olds don’t know how [...]

A Quick Word On Jed Lowrie

by Sully on January 30, 2011

in Red Sox

Anyone who tells you they have a beat on Jed Lowrie and his prospects for 2011 is speculating. He has an encouraging Minor League track record, a choppy Major League one and he hasn’t been able to stay healthy long enough to get a sense for what type of player he ultimately will be. But [...]

Before moving to Oregon I had heard it rained a lot.  It has been, roughly speaking, raining for the last three months.  But I’m fine.  And not only that, I’m proud of myself for being fine.  I can handle this.  Then I had a conversation with a native Oregonian yesterday who said something along the [...]

Daily Links – The Trivia Day Edition

by Matt on January 18, 2011

in Red Sox

Since I’ve been watching reruns of TV Funhouse I’m making it Trivia Day here at Daily Links.  If you have ever seen the show, you know that there won’t be much trivia on Trivia Day.  Only one question in fact, at the very end.  So gear up for it, but know that unlike TV Funhouse, [...]

Nothing goes together like the tastes of green flavored NyQuil and cherry throat lozenges.  As far as I can tell neither of those products accomplishes anything other than making you forget you’re sick for a second while you focus on the horrible taste in your mouth.  Also, nothing in the history of man has ever [...]

Marco Scutaro or Jed Lowrie

by Sully on November 30, 2010

in Red Sox

A couple of weeks ago Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reported that the Red Sox were “drawing interest” in Marco Scutaro. I don’t think that necessarily means the Red Sox wouldn’t be happy with Scutaro next season, but it does mean that they would also be happy with Jed Lowrie there for a year (or more) [...]
