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 […]

July 7, 2015: Greater Boston Food Bank Fundraiser Slated for July 10th and 11th

When the Boston Red Sox take on the New York Yankees, Friday, July 10th and Saturday, July 11th at Fenway Park, their wives and girlfriends will take on hunger in the Bay State. To help end hunger in Massachusetts, the Red Sox wives and girlfriends are teaming up with The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) […]

Red Sox 3, Blue Jays 1: Sure, NOW they start winning…

Went to Fenway with my daughter and friend last week, and the only thing that went wrong the entire time is the Sox losing to the fracking Cookies. Oh, and the “wave” and “sweet Caroline” nonsense, with all the “fans” just following along blindly, apparently not noticing that the Sox were LOSING, and they are […]

Red Sox 13, Kansas City 2: Winning the Series….

And how sad is it that this is such a unique thing that it is shocking when they manage to string together a couple of wins? It’s equally as sad that there is little to no expectation of them winning, just that they will lose in some embarrassing and horrifying fashion. And there is also […]

Red Sox 7, Oakland 4: And the Sweep is Complete

Wait…What? Have we entered an alternate reality? Should we check for pods in the basement? Not only did the Sox SWEEP Oakland this weekend, they did it scoring all 7 -runs in the 8th inning, and despite That Clay Person’s less than stellar outing? While his outing wasn’t HORRIBLE, it wasn’t exactly inspired either. Throwing […]

Red Sox 1, Rangers 2: AGAIN with the Sleeping Offense…

Holy Buckets. There seems to be a proportionately large number of low scoring games these days. And while it is certainly a good thing Joe Kelly did pitch very well in his 7 innings of work, it means NOTHING if the bats do NOTHING…and with THREE opportunities with the bases loaded–they deserved to lose this […]

Red Sox 4, Rangers 3: OK, So that didn’t suck…

In a refreshing twist, the Rangers are actually more awful than the Sox this year (not that is something to be proud off) And it looks like the $72.2 million dollar minor leaguer Rusney Castillo will be hitting the bigs sooner rather than later; some say it wil be before the 6-game homestand. All I […]

May 14, 2015: Guest Post: Jackie Robinson: A Letter to the President

Fellow Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA) member Stephen of Pastime Post offered this article to whomever wished to post it on their website. I am so very glad he did. It is worth the read. Enjoy. Jackie Robinson: A Letter to the President by Stephen C. Jordan I have lived in New England for the majority […]

Red Sox 2, Oakland 9: I guess 3 in a row was too much to ask..

…at least in wins, anyway. In losses, the Sox have NO problem getting 3 or more in a row.. And I see that Justin Masterson didn’t think his 6+ ERA was QUITE high enough, with the shelling he received last night. Love the guy, but as I said in the offseason when Ben signed him–did […]
