According to Yahoo!'s Jeff Passan, the Red Sox have agreed to terms with former Cardinals reliever Edward Mujica to a two-year, $9.5 million deal. The deal reminds me a bit of the signing of Koji Uehara last year. Mujica doesn't have the closer cache of Joe Nathan or even Brian... Continue reading

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that while the Texas Rangers continue to chase hitting (in the form of Shin-Soo Choo), the team is no longer interested in signing Jacoby Ellsbury: The Rangers are considering a run at top-tier free-agent outfielder Shin-Soo Choo and apparently have ruled out the other top...

The free-agent bidding for Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz came down to Philadelphia and Boston, but the Phils went the extra mile to retain Ruiz by giving him three years guaranteed, plus a fourth-year option. MLBTradeRumors has a good round-up of the various details of the deal. Ruiz gets $8.5 million... Continue reading

Heading into this series the element that most analysts pointed to as a St. Louis advantage was the bullpen. Other than all-world closer Koji Uehara, the Red Sox bullpen has been littered with questions, up until the last two weeks when everyone has convinced themselves that Craig Breslow and Junichi...

The Red Sox head back to Fenway up 3-2 in the ALCS thanks to a 4-3 win over the Tigers tonight in Detroit. The big story: There was actually some offense for both teams. The Tigers and Red Sox each had double-digit hits tonight, despite respectable performances by Jon Lester... Continue reading

The Red Sox took a 2-1 lead over Detroit after winning game 3 1-0 tonight. John Lackey was absolutely spectacular. He went just 6 2/3, but only because John Farrell wanted to play some match-ups with the bullpen. He gave up just four hits, two of which came in the... Continue reading

The Red Sox are moving on to the AL Championship Series after beating the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 in game 4 tonight. And while that sentence sounds quite normal, the game was far from it. In fact, for a nine-inning game that produced four runs, it's one of the oddest... Continue reading

Colorado denied Boston a chance at 100 wins with an 8-3 win at Coors Field. Tyler Chatwood shut down the Sox, giving up just three hits (and a walk) over seven innings. The Sox roughed up the Rockies bullpen a little, with Jarrod Saltalamacchia homering in the 9th, but overall... Continue reading

It's fitting that the successful-beyond-expectations Red Sox clinch a playoff berth on a night in which their previously most reviled player -- one who had been a complete bust at $18 million per year -- tosses a complete-game two-hitter. John Lackey was a strike machine tonight. He had a no-hitter... Continue reading

The Red Sox failed to clinch a playoff spot tonight as the Orioles finally got to Koji Uehara. Koji retired 37 consecutive batters over what feels like all summer until Danny Valencia (remember him?) came up in the 9th in a tie ballgame, and hit a triple to center field.... Continue reading

The Red Sox couldn't complete the sweep in Tampa, losing 4-3 as a result of their Achilles heel, the 8th inning. With no true set-up man on the roster -- and a tired bullpen anyway -- the Red Sox turned to youngster Rubby de la Rosa to take down the... Continue reading

Four Red Sox pitchers combined for a 2-0 shutout of the Tampa Bay Rays tonight at the Trop. KKKKKKKKKKKKKKoji Uehara came in for a rare four-out save, but what wasn't rare was his dismantling of the Rays lineup. Up 2-0 in the 8th, John Farrell hoped to get a clean... Continue reading
