Photo by Maddie Malhotra/Boston Red Sox/Getty Images A festive holiday goes down the tubes as collision puts Devers and O’Neill into concussion protocol. This trifecta holiday of Patriots Day, Marathon Monday, and Jackie Robinson Day began with magic in the air. Ceddanne Rafaela started at short (which is by far my preferred defensive alignment), Rafael Devers was back in the lineup after missing four games, Kutter Crawford was looking for first win, and our defense was actually solid over the first few innings. The game started out encouragingly with two strikeouts by Crawford, against a Clev ..read more

Photo by Erica Denhoff/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Marathon Monday Morning Madness! Rise and shine! You know the drill: it’s Marathon Monday which means morning baseball for the Red Sox. We’ll start with the best news: Rafael Devers is back. And playing third base. Everyone with a shoulder to donate can breathe a sigh of relief for the moment. Ceddanne Rafaela will be sliding over from center field to shortstop today. There are definitely people out there thinking he’s the best answer to the position while Trevor Story misses the season. Just following in the footsteps of the great Mookie ..read more

Photo by Stuart Cahill/MediaNews Group/Boston Herald via Getty Images An anniversary unlike any other Happy Monday. Happy Marathon. Today is Here Comes the Pizza Day (Observed since the anniversary was 4/14). The Red Sox play the Cleveland Guardians bright and early at 11:10 AM ET. Remembering 2004 After 15 games the 2004 Red Sox were 10-6 (against 2024’s 9-7) after losing the finale in a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays. Curt Schilling allowed 7 runs in 7.2 innings, including a double to Carlos Delgado and a grand slam to (the very notable) Chris Gomez. Talk about what you wan ..read more

Red Sox News & Links: Kenley Jansen Blames the Baseballs for His Struggles

Photo by Maddie Malhotra/Boston Red Sox/Getty Images Plus, updates on Chris Martin’s injury While the Red Sox middle relief has been generally very good, we can’t say the same about the back-end of the bullpen, and Kenley Jansen in particular. The closer has yet to blow a save this season, but is also struggling to find his control. He thinks he’s found something/someone to blame, though: the baseballs. (Julian McWilliams, Boston Globe) Tyler O’Neill has been doing his part to help Kenley, though, by removing as many balls from game play as possible. The right fielder currently leads the Major ..read more

And indeed, it is a happy Monday in Red Sox nation: after an abysmal performance Friday night, the Red Sox pulled off two wins this weekend against the Angels team that looks to be neck and neck with them in terms of performance. On the farm, the teams also looked more good than bad, and went 3-2, including a split by Worcester. Worcester: L, 5-10 (BOX SCORE) Good news: Vaughn Grissom is rehabbing as a DH! Bad news: It’s as a DH, and he struck out 3 times in 7 inni ..read more

Happy Marathon Monday, friends! Hopefully you’re off work and you’re able to properly enjoy one of the best days of the year in Boston. Feels like a perfect day to watch the Red Sox win an early baseball game. Speaking of those Red Sox, they had a pretty topsy-turvy week. A pair of convincing wins on Saturday and Sunday were enough to salvage something after four straight losses in as many home games following their West Coast ..read more

Photo by Omar Rawlings/Getty Images Take the series! The Red Sox were swept by the Baltimore Orioles with two late-game collapses. Then really bottomed out on Friday against the Angels. Yesterday they bounced back. Seven runs, no errors. Now it’s time to notch a series win against LA. Brayan Bello is making another day start - something he struggled with last season. He’s also facing the Angels for the first time this year having battled the Seattles Mariners and Oakland A’s of Sacramento of Las Vegas during the West Coast swing. It’s been a solid if uninspiring start for the up-and-coming “ac ..read more

Red Sox 7, Angels 2: Palate Cleanser

Photo by Maddie Malhotra/Boston Red Sox/Getty Images A Casas bomb launches a laugher Home runs are only equal in the box score. In real life, we know better. Some homers are cheap; some are majestic; some are pivotal; some are meaningless; some make you get up out of your seat; some make you groan. Triston Casas’s first inning two-run bomb against the Angels — which was one of the longest homers I’ve seen at Fenway in recent memory — felt like a palate cleanser. It was the baseball equivalent of that movie trope where a wizened tough guy fires a pistol in the air to calm down the panicked town ..read more

Los Angeles 7, Boston 0: Red Sox get the devil beat out of them by the Angels

Photo by Paul Rutherford/Getty Images We suck! Unlike the last two games when the Red Sox waited until the late innings to crack and reveal their glaring weaknesses on depth and defense, they imploded early tonight. How nice of them to get it over with quick! The first six consecutive plate appearances had some shade of negativity for Boston, while offensively they managed just three hits all night. Here’s the sequence that put them in an early hole for good: Anthony Rendon singles to start the game. Tanner Houck hits Nolan Schanuel on a 1-0 pitch. David Hamilton and his disastrous defense at ..read more
