Daily Red Sox Links: Josh Reddick, Rafael Devers, Michael Chavis Josh Reddick was traded from Boston to Oakland back in 2011, and it was just about the best thing that could have happened for his career.
Boston Red Sox-MLB free agency: starter market loaded & Boston needs 5th starter, but it has about $83.1M owed to other 4 starters But Boston heads into this offseason without a No. 5 starter and its other four starting pitchers counting for approximately $83.1 million toward the Competitive Balance Tax threshold. The club's 2020 payroll already is at approximately $218 million before any offseason additions.

Mike Lowell Tabs Red Sox's 'Unexpected Hero' From 2007 World Series Seemingly every World Series winner has a player come from out of nowhere to catapult themselves forever into baseball lore. The 2004 Boston Red Sox had Dave Roberts with the most important stolen base in baseball history.
Red Sox should take the non-tender path with Sandy Leon, Steven Wright Leon is projected to receive $2.4 Million in arbitration and that can be avoided by not tendering a contract. But how do you replace Leon? Is the cost balanced out fiscally with a replacement? The farm system has nothing on the horizon with not one prospect cracking the top 30 list.
Red Sox are reportedly likely to tender Jackie Bradley, explore trade A bloated payroll has become a major issue for the Red Sox, who are looking to get below the $208M threshold. That means some difficult decisions are looming.
Red Sox should position Michael Chavis as their next first baseman Boston's powerhouse rookie came onto the scene thanks to an early-season call-up from Pawtucket. He didn't waste any time in making a name for himself as almost instantly he became a key player in the Red Sox offense. Seriously, the kid was smacking moon-bombs as if his life depended on it.
An Interview With Marcus Wilson Before we begin, thank you to Shannon Donahue from Berk Communications for helping to arrange this interview, and thank you to Marcus Wilson for finding time in his schedule to speak with me. Wilson was traded to the Red Sox in April in exchange for Blake Swihart and international pool money.
Red Sox 2019 Report Cards: Relief Pitcher Marcus Walden In 2018 the out of nowhere surprise was Ryan Brasier and Walden assumed that in 2019. An amazing story of resilience with multiple organizations. Walden brought a measure of security to a bullpen that had lost Joe Kelly to free agency by being ensconced in a similar role without the flashy heat.
Kansas City Royals: Making the case, Boston Red Sox free agents Continuing our series of potential free agents that could be a good fit for the Kansas City Royals, the Boston Red Sox are up next. The Boston Red Sox are…
The Night David Ortiz Doubled Down on His Own Badassery But game two, and that grand slam, and how it helped elevate a city that needed something bright and positive to cling to, cemented David Ortiz's status on the Mount Rushmore of Boston sports.
OTM Open Thread 10/13: It is Sunday The MLB Playoffs continue tonight with just one game as the Astros look to recover and tie this ALCS back up before they head back east. We already saw the Nationals take control of their series with two road wins to start things off, and the Yankees have a chance to do the same tonight.
MLB Roundup 10/11: Yankees run away with Game One The Nationals took the first game of the NLCS on the road in Saint Louis thanks to a dominant performance from Aníbal Sánchez in which he flirted with a no-hitter. The Nationals took the second game of the NLCS on the road in Saint Louis thanks to a dominant performance from Max Scherzer in which he flirted with a no-hitter.
Boston Red Sox likely to cut payroll at non-tender deadline with $70.1M projected for salary arbitration players They could be designated for assignment in early November when teams are required to add to the 40-man roster any Rule-5 eligible players who they want to protect. Hernandez went 7-for-49 in 20 games for Boston during September. Owings went 7-for-45. Sandy Leon and Steven Wright seem like the most obvious non-tender candidates.
Daily Red Sox Links: Mookie Betts, David Ortiz, Gleyber Torres As part of his weekly MLB notebook, Sean McAdam looks at some possible trade destinations for Mookie Betts. Peter Abraham tries to figure out exactly what will be on the table for the next Red Sox pitching coach. David Ortiz is back on TV, and he's playing pranks.
AL Notes: Yankees, Astros, Red Sox Ken Davidoff of The New York Post spoke with a Rays official in the wake of the team's close-but-not-quite battle with the mighty Houston Astros, and the Tampa employee believes his team's ALDS strategy could end up changing the shape of the postseason.
A look at the Red Sox possibilities for foreign players in Japan Can he play the outfield? Gracial appears to be Rusney Castillo without the inflated price tag. Two names from the very distant past have also surfaced with Kosuke Fukudome and Nori Aoki who both spent considerable time in ML and are natives to Japan.
Astros, Yankees ALCS rosters: Ex-Boston Red Sox Wade Miley left off Houston's roster Miley, who will be eligible for free agency this offseason, pitched for Boston in 2015. Aaron Hicks and CC Sabathia were left off the Yankees' ALDS roster but manager Aaron Boone has them on the ALCS roster.
The language of baseball: Often crude, sometimes comical - The Boston Globe It was "bleep this" and "bleep that.'' You bet your bleeping bleep it was. And if it offended you, that was too bleeping bad. In this environment, you go numb fairly quickly. You stop hearing it. Maybe you even start doing it yourself. But you don't ever do it in front of your parents or in front of your own children.

OTM Open Thread 10/12: It is Saturday We have two baseball games today for possibly the last time all year. Things kick off with the second game of the NLCS, with Max Scherzer taking on Adam Wainwright. This is a huge pivot point for this series, as Washington will be in total control if they are able to take each of the first two games of this one on the road.
MLB Roundup 10/12: Aníbal Sánchez leads Nationals to Game One win On paper, at least in my eyes, the NLCS is a lopsided affair. To be fair, I said the same about the Cardinals-Braves NLDS, and the team I thought it was lopsided in favor of is now sitting at home watching. The Nationals look like a much better team on paper, though, and they took the first game of this series on the road.
Daily Red Sox Links: Mookie Betts, Andrew Friedman, Curt Schilling If Mookie Betts does indeed end up on the table this winter, the Padres will likely be part of the conversation. What could they give up?. It's not clear whether or not Andrew Friedman will actually leave Los Angeles, but if he is willing to he is the best man for the Red Sox job.
Boston Red Sox, Philadelphia Phillies jobs interesting to Curt Schilling Curt Schilling has interest in the Boston Red Sox pitching coach and the Philadelphia Phillies managerial openings. That does not mean that either team has any interest in bringing in the circus that will come with the former All Star. Welcome!
