November 18, 2015: Happy Birthday David Ortiz!

Today, The Large Father turned 40–and after the 2016 campaign, he will retire from baseball… Wait. WHAT??? Yep. Ken Rosenthal from Fox sports broke the news yesterday, and Big Papi confirmed it with a video this morning. After 20 years in MLB, he will hang up hit hat. The gift baskets we keep sending to […]

November 16, 2015: MLB takes on golf and poker with the Player’s Trust

2015 was undoubtedly a difficult year for Boston Red Sox. The team faced many struggles and ended the season helpless at the bottom of the division despite the impressive efforts of Xander Bogaerts, Mookie Betts, and Jackie Bradley, Jr. Despite the relative disappointments of the season, baseball fans can still look ahead to a few […]

November 6, 2015: 104, 114, 116 and 149…

So the 2015 Campaign is over, with the KC Royals beating the Mets in 5 games to become World Series Champions. While it was not the World Series I would have like to have seen, the outcome was acceptable, cause the thought of the Mets winning, kinda made me queasy. While I do not actively […]

October 29, 2015: A Mets/Royals World Series…

Yawn… Yes, I had my heart set on a Cubs/Blue Jay World Series, and I really have no huge issue with each team, except for the fact that I think the owners of the Mets are some of the most classless individuals in baseball…Which is why if I have an opinion on who to root […]

October 16, 2015: Holy Buckets! The Cubs won the Division Series!

With a 100 wins in the regular season, and the best record in baseball for the 2015 campaign, I think everyone expected the Cardinals to advance to the NLCS over the Cubs, who, despite their impressive 97-65 record, are still, you know…the CUBS… But this is baseball, and we all know anything can happen, especially […]

October 12, 2015: 9 Things…

Thankful this (mostly) lost season is over as I juggle a toddler in pre-school, abnormal psych, and a tooth in need of a root canal… 1. So we are a week into the postseason, and the World Series matchup I would most like to see if the Cubs and Toronto. Anyone versus the Cubs would […]

Red Sox 2, Tampa Bay 5: I don’t even know WHAT to say anymore…

While the last couple weeks have certainly been more palatable, and chances are good they will not end up dead last in the AL East for the 2nd time in as many years, that also wrecks their draft order, as dead last gets you a better spot. And while I certainly don’t want them to […]

Highland Street Foundation, the City of Boston and the Red Sox to Transform Boston Common into Fenway Park for “Out of the Park” Event

On Sunday, September 13, The Highland Street Foundation, the Boston Red Sox and the City’s Parks and Recreation Department, will hold the second annual “Out of the Park” event, a free, family-friendly program transforming a busy corner of Boston Common into Fenway Park. “Out of the Park” will present the Red Sox/Tampa Bay Rays away […]

September 4, 2015: Countdown to the End…

28 games left in a season that pretty much ended before it got started, and honestly this has been a pretty lost season for me. I just COULD NOT get up any kind of enthusiasm for this team. I guess it started when they yanked Jon Lester’s chain for the better part of 2014, THEN […]

Red Sox 8, Skanks 13: So Much For Being a Spoiler…

Some random thoughts after my 3-hour root canal, while I wait for the novacaine to wear off… So the Sox won by a little bit on Monday (4-3), and lost by a little bit on Tuesday, (3-1), and then got beat up (13-8) in the rubber match this afternoon. Am I the only one who […]

Red Sox 3, White Sox 0: Pod Checking…and Other Random Thoughts…

OK, I am DEFINITELY checking for pods. Arguable the WORST pitcher the Sox have on the starting 5 (6-11, with a 5.47 ERA–we’re talking John Lackey circa 2012 BAD), pitched BRILIANTLY for 7 innings of 5 hit ball with 5 strikeouts and a wild pitch. He threw 94 pitches, 67 for strikes. He just got […]

Red Sox Players + Fans = Ice Bucket Challenge Redux

Would you like one of your favorite Red Sox stars to pour ice on your head at Fenway Park next week AND receive an autographed Red Sox #3 Frates jersey? It could happen. Next Monday, August 31st David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia headline a list of seven Red Sox stars who will to pour ice […]

Red Sox 6, Cleveland 4: Well, that was unexpected…

…Except that I guess it really wasn’t. I think everyone kinda felt the rumblings (at least I did) that it was certainly possible that once Dave Dombrowski was let go by the Tigers, that he would find a home with the Sox. Especially since he and John Henry have a looooong history–and we all know […]

August 11, 2015: No More Koji…

As a result the line drive Ian Kinsler bounced off his writs on Friday night, Koji’s wrist is fractured, leaving him with 25 saves and a 2.23 ERA for the 2015 campaign, as he season is now over. Although based on the current state of affairs, it’s not really going to make a bit of […]

Red Sox 2, Skanks 1: Now, Was That Really All That Hard???

Holy hell, I am getting tired of this…. OK, truth be told, I had my fill of this nonsense about June of LAST year, but I think you get to a point (at least I do anyway) where all the losses just keep on piling up, and it gets numbing… But I am not sure […]

Guest Post: Can the Red Sox Repeat the 88? Season?

By Joe Messineo Editors Note:  from time to time we here at Boston Red Thoughts like to hear from other writers.  Thanks to Joe for sending this along. Although the Red Sox have won 3 of their last 4 games, their 5 – 12 record since the All Star break makes it a bit challenging […]

Red Sox 8, White Sox 10: 13. Games. Behind.

Two weeks ago, the Sox were 5.5 games behind in the AL East. Still in dead last, but 5.5 games heading into the All-Star break, while daunting, was possible. Today, after losing NINE OF THEIR LAST ELEVEN, including being swept by Anaheim AND the fracking Astros–who are, inexplicably in second place in the AL West–They […]

July 17, 2015: Cheer on Veterans & Families as They Run to Home Base at Fenway Park

The Red Sox Foundation & Massachusetts General Hospital to raise funds for military personnel with 9K fund raising run; Registration still available Get the family together and head to historic Fenway Park on Saturday, July 25, 2015 from 6:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Gate B to cheer on runners as they cross home plate at the 6th Annual […]

July 10, 2015: Closing out the First Half of 2015.

So the Sox are riding a 4-game winning streak, Ric Porcello actually WON a game, and brought his ERA under 6 (yes, check for pods…), and the Sox have won 8 out of their last 10 contests, which puts the Sox in a very interesting position for this weekend’s series against the first place Skanks. […]

Red Sox 4, Marlins 3: Beating the Fish…

Yeah, that sounds dirty, sort of like how “gesticulate” sounds like a dirty word, but it isn’t… So the Sox have 2 quick games with the Marlins, in between off days, before they get 4 days off next week for the All-Star Break. This has bothered me every year, except for this one, probably because […]
