In Defense of Devers

Boston Red Sox 3rd baseman Rafael Devers has caught a lot of heat lately for his sub-par defensive efforts at the hot corner. And while much of this criticism is deserved, there's a reason he remains Boston's first choice at 3rd over Eduardo Nunez and Brock Holt. For one, Devers has already shown that he...

Red Sox Offense Still Tops

Worry not, Nation, the Red Sox bats will be just fine. Despite being no-hit on Saturday and held to just 6 hits and 1 run on Sunday, the Red Sox are still the top ranked offense in the MLB and should continue to be so for the foreseeable future. Boston still ranks 1st in an... Continue Reading →

With a roster that is almost unanimously considered top-5 in the MLB, the Sox have... Continue Reading →

2018 Bold Predictions

Opening Day is finally here! It's the moment we've all been not-so-patiently waiting for since the Red Sox crashed out of the ALDS last October. A new season means a clean slate, a chance to create something new and organic. I truly believe that this version of the Sox has the potential to be something... Continue Reading →

Devers Is Ready to Break Out

Rafael Devers is a man to keep an eye on in 2018. The 21-year old 3rd baseman put his talent on display last year. Called up in late July, he impressed everyone with his maturity and his ability to hit in big situations. In just 58 games, Devers hit .284 with 10 HR and 30... Continue Reading →

2018 Season Preview: Lineup
