It’s been a lost season for the Red Sox, but the same can’t be said for the Angels, who have beaten the Red Sox three straight times and are in first place in the AL West. THe third win in this stretch, though, was very costly, as the team lost its best pitcher, Garret Richards […]

Photo: Paul Pierce with Al Pacino on Private Jet

Say what you want about Al Pacino’s acting skills (OK, I will — his role in “Two For the Money” was trash. Pure garbage), but he picks some good company to hang out with. Right Paul Pierce?

Video: David Ortiz Hits 400th (and 401st) Home Run(s) with Red Sox

Ted Williams. Carl Yastrzemski. David Ortiz. Does he belong in the same sentence with the other two Red Sox legends? Well, after a two-HR night on Saturday, Ortiz has certainly entered the conversation: Your browser does not support iframes.

Video: History of NFL Team Logos

This is really cool. It’s a look at NFL team logos through the years, sorted on a map. I find it amazing how regional the NFL was in the early days. Take a look:

Red Sox Trade Felix Doubront to Chicago Cubs

The Red Sox dealt a starting pitcher on Wednesday — no, not that one. Boston traded lefty Felix Doubront to the Chicago Cubs for a player to be named later. That player will be sent to the Red Sox after the Rule 5 Draft and is expected to be a low-level prospect. Doubront has been […]

Jon Lester Trade Rumors: Lester Scratched from Wednesday Start

Patriots Training Camp Notes: Tom Brady Sees Fewer Reps

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, now at his 15th training camp in New England, knows his time in the league will eventually come to end, at least he said as much about his NFL mortality last week. “There’s no easy way about it — just got to grind, put the work in, listen to the coaches,” Brady […]

Video: Brock Holt Makes Unreal Catch in Red Sox 14-1 Win Over Blue Jays

The Red Sox won 14-1 Monday night, which by itself is worthy of a CNN breaking news alert. David Ortiz launched two home runs, passing Yaz on the all-time home run list… and even Stephen Drew hit a home run. But, perhaps nothing was more amazing than Brock Holt’s amazing catch while playing in a […]

Celtics to Sign Evan Turner

The Celtics have agreed to sign 25-year-old swingman Evan Turner, and it’s likely for a portion of the mid-level exception.

Turner […]

NBA legend Bill Russell, widely considered as one of the 2 or 3 best centers in league history, was hospitalized Thursday after feeling faint while giving a speech in Nevada. The 80-year-old Russell was taken away from the event on a stretcher and taken to the hospital as a precaution.

John Farrell Considering Superman (Brock Holt) for All-Star Game

With the Red Sox at 38-47 (as of this writing) and in fourth place in the American League East, the team clearly boasts only a couple possible candidates for this year’s All-Star Game.
