Christian Vazquez only got one start at designated hitter in the entire 2018 season. That came on June 7 against Detroit pitcher Matthew Boyd. It was the kind of lineup luxury afforded Red Sox manager Alex Cora for much of the season because he was carrying three catchers, with the presence of...

When Blake Swihart was designated for assignment we were distracted from what really mattered. The first focus immediately shifted on Swihart, the former first-round pick who many believed simply wasn't given the kind of chance he deserved. Then there was the conversation regarding Sandy Leon,...

Athough not as crazy as Monday, Tuesday is another interesting lineup for the Red Sox. Two days after fouling a pitch off his foot, Andrew Benintendi remains out, and fresh off of being recalled Sandy Leon will be behind the plate catching Red Sox starter Chris Sale. J.D. Martinez will play left...

Triple-A Pawtucket had its first home game of the 2019 season on Thursday. Why’s that worth noting? You would think it’s because the team’s days in Pawtucket are numbered, or that Sandy Leon, Sam Travis, Bobby Poyner, and Tony Renda received their World Series rings. Nope, not the case. Everyone’s...

With all the Red Sox struggles in the young 2019 season, it’s a bit surprising there haven’t been any Rusney Castillo calls to the postgame show yet. Not that it’ll make a difference. Castillo isn’t worth the risk with that gaudy contract. (Castillo’s contract does not count against Boston’s MLB...
