Sox Therapy: Thanks Jerry

Longtime Red Sox player and announcer Jerry Remy has passed away at the age of 68 from lung cancer.  RemDawg was the classic case of local boy makes good.  He grew up in Fall River and after starting his career with the then California Angels he was acquired prior to the 1978 season in exchange for young right handed pitcher Don Aase.  I turned 8 years old during that memorable season and Remy quickly became one of my favorite players.  On a team laden with slugging right-handed bats Remy was ...

Sox Therapy: Five Dumb Trades

Hey, let’s have a thread where everyone tells me how dumb I am!  Rather than just say “hey the Sox should get better players” I’m going to put five trades out there.  It is highly likely that these are dumb trades for someone but hey, it’s a place to start as we look at the off-season.

Red Sox Get: 1B Matt Olson
Athletics Get: 1B Bobby Dalbec, RHP Bryan Bello, 3B Blaze Jordan, RHP Connor Seabold

Sox Do It Because: Olson is a terrific player and under club control for three more seasons.  He’s ...

Sox Therapy: Meet the 2022 Red Sox

OK, enough waiting, it was a lovely weekend but now it’s on with the show.  After a 92 win season that culminated with a thrilling, memorable playoff run to the LCS we can start to look ahead to 2022.  The future should be bright for the Boston Red Sox with manager Alex Cora firmly entrenched now (do NOT re-read this post thanks) and Chaim Bloom looking like a guy who can pull the right triggers at the right time Sox fans rightly feel pretty good about where they stand in what looks like a very ...

Sox Therapy: What a Ride

Well that was a hell of a ride wasn’t it?  I guess it had to end at some point but my goodness you can’t ask for much more. Beyond that they are incredibly well situated for the future.  Chaim Bloom’s work to rebuild the system is proceeding apace and two years after trading one of the great players in franchise history, a move so many of us saw as a harbinger of disaster, that they’ve returned to the LCS should tell us that this team that has been so brilliant for the last two ...

Sox Therapy: The Boston Red Sox Will Play for the Pennant

In April 15 American League teams began their quest for the World Series.  Three of them are left standing and kids, the Boston Red Sox are one of them after a grinding 6-5 victory over a genuinely terrific Tampa Bay Rays team.  The praise for the Rays can’t be overstated, they are a hell of a team and are worthy of all the salutations.

But for now, the celebration is here with the local nine.  They.  Do.  Not.  Get.  Rattled.  This team has had so many chances to roll over and you know ...
