Red Sox’s Kyle Schwarber Offers Good Explanation For Offensive Approach

Remember when Kyle Schwarber was a catcher? Maybe you do. Maybe you don’t. But he certainly does, because the Boston Red Sox slugger recently explained to WEEI’s Rob Bradford that his time as a backstop played a role in his offensive development. “I kind of always had a sense for the plate. I think a […] The post Red Sox’s Kyle Schwarber Offers Good Explanation For Offensive Approach appeared first on NESN.com.

Record 47-99 Head-to-head record Red Sox 9, Orioles 4 Trend Down, like always. Baltimore was able to avoid a sweep to the Yankees thanks to a walkoff win on Thursday, but that snapped a five-game losing streak. Overall, they’ve won only twice in their last eight games.

OTM Roundtable: What matchup do you want to see?

Photo by Abbie Parr/ In the wildcard game, that is. The Red Sox are mired in a tight wildcard race in which five teams fighting for two spots are separated by four games. As we speak here Friday morning, the Red Sox and Blue Jays are tied and hold the top two spots, with New York trailing by a half-game, Oakland by three games, and Seattle by four. For this week’s roundtable, I asked which matchup everyone would like to see the most, and which they’d like to see the least.

FanPost Friday: Mapping out the rotation

Photo by Richard T Gagnon/ Who starts when, and how do you line things up? We are now officailly in stretch run time, with just a few weeks left in the season and the race almost certainly coming right down to the wire. The two AL West teams aren’t out of it, but it’s starting to shape up as a race for two spots between three teams. One big advantage the Red Sox could have over the Yankees and Blue Jays is the fact that they have three more days off on their schedule, and including Thursday’s which made four, they have double the amount of the other...

The curious case of Hunter Renfroe’s defense

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports Is he good? There’s an episode late in the run of former NBC sitcom Community — a fantastic choice if you’re looking for a sitcom to binge, FYI — where one of the characters, Abed, takes a course dedicated to whether or not Nicolas Cage is a good actor. Abed connects with the world through movies, TV, and pop culture, and the question begins to consume him until he has a complete meltdown in which he channels the man himself. Ultimately, the answer is never revealed as to whether or not Cage is a good actor. He remains a mystery,...

Chris Sale is better than Nathan Eovaldi

BOOGEYMAN. | Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports That is not a knock on Nate, folks. The first thing to know about this whole discussion is that it’s all academic. The question of who should potentially start the single wild card playoff game is really going to come down to how hard the Sox have to charge to get there in the first place, not what they’d do if they had their druthers. This is all just a thought experiment. The thought experiment, as you can glean from the headline, regards Chris Sale and Nathan Eovaldi. It has been percolating in the Twitters recently...
