This evening, the Red Sox wrongly made their two-time World Series-winning manager the first fall guy of the offseason.
Much like the 2011 AL Wild Card race, the league's MVP race is excitingly close as the season comes to a close. But Ellsbury just separated himself from the pack of candidates.
The Red Sox's lousy pitching in the last week couldn't have occurred at a worse time. Can the BoSox rebound before it's too late?
The Red Sox finally beat the Texas Rangers in 2011, and did it twice the last two nights, with solid pitching and explosive offense leading the charge.
Boston's explosive bats against the Yankees and Blue Jays powered their way to the best record in the American League. It looks to continue that streak against the Rays.
On paper, the 2011 Boston Red Sox look set to win the AL East. But only health and consistency from key players will get the hometown squad there.
The Rays are rebuilding during spring training.
After resigning Jason Varitek, trading for Adrian Gonzalez and signing Carl Crawford to improve the offense, GM Theo Epstein is quietly rebuilding the troubled Red Sox bullpen.
Predictions forecasted to be dead wrong.
Whether you are a Red Sox fan (like this author) or not, you can now make a strong case for Clay Buchholz to win his first Cy Young Award.
