Posted on October 12, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine In what some people are calling the real World Series, the Boston Red Sox will face the Houston Astros in the 2018 ALCS. This series will be a repeat of last year’s ALDS in which the Astros eliminated the Red Sox in four games on their way […]

Posted on October 8, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Of the four division series of the MLB postseason, the Yankees and Red Sox had the distinction of being the only one in which the two teams split the first two games. The Red Sox hung on for the win in Game 1 for the Yankees were […]

Posted on October 5, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The race for the AL East division title between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees didn’t end up being as exciting as we hoped.

Posted on September 21, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine For weeks, it’s been a foregone conclusion that the Boston Red Sox would win the AL East. But it’s always nice when it becomes official, which is exactly what the Red Sox did Thursday night in the Bronx. In a wild, back-and-forth game, the Red Sox beat […]

Posted on March 19, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Despite winning the AL East with a 93-69 record the past two seasons, the Boston Red Sox haven’t won a postseason series since claiming the 2013 World Series.

Posted on February 13, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine After a long and fairly uneventful winter, spring training is finally here.

Earlier […]

Posted on February 7, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Despite a proverbial game of chicken between free agent J.D. Martinez and the Boston Red Sox that has seemingly been going on all offseason, the odds have always been good that Martinez would end up in Boston when all is said and done. However, recent reports indicate […]
