An independent task force, formed after two Boston University hockey players were accused of sexual assault, has found that the players generally have a sense of sexual entitlement. In other news, another independent task force has found that grass tends to be green and water is wet. The fact that the top sports squad at [...]
Former Red Sox bench coach Brad Mills, who left the team to become the manager of the Houston Astros in 2009, was fired Saturday night. His Astros have the worst record in baseball at 39-82, including an unbelievably bad 4-34 stretch earlier this season. The team is in the midst of rebuilding, having traded away [...]
If it seemed odd that Adrian Gonzalez sent the infamous text message to John Henry complaining about manager Bobby Valentine, your suspicions were correct, according to a report from the New York Daily News. Ex-Red Sox catcher Kelly Shoppach apparently sent the text message to Henry using Gonzalez’s cell phone, the paper reported Sunday. Shoppach [...]
Tom Brady is America’s alpha dog. Wait, you didn’t know that? Well, thankfully, VMAN Magazine is here to explain. They talked to Brady and are featuring him on their fall issue, which is due in stores August 23. Brady is wearing a Tom Ford tuxedo…and of course the dog collar. Here’s a look at the [...]
Is the Red Sox clubhouse toxic? I know, this is an age-old question. But, we may finally have our answer. Let’s just say it’s an absolute YES. Yahoo!’s Jeff Passan reported Tuesday about an explosive meeting on July 26 during the team’s off-day. Red Sox owners called the meeting after receiving a text message from [...]
Among the details in Jeff Passan’s bombshell report for Yahoo! on Tuesday was a report that a photo of Dustin Pedroia and Bobby Valentine was being circulated around the Red Sox clubhouse via text message. The source said that the photo shows Pedroia wagging his tongue with both thumbs up next to a sleeping Bobby [...]
It just went from bad to worse for Chad Johnson. The Dolphins have released Johnson, less than 24 hours after the wide receiver was arrested for head-butting his wife, Evelyn Lozada. The Patriots released Johnson earlier in the offseason when he was still named Ochocinco.
Plaxico Burress, who caught the winning pass to end the Patriots’ shot at a perfect season in the 2008 Super Bowl, will work out for the team on Sunday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Burress, who turned 35 on Sunday, has not worked out with any other team this offseason. He finished with 45 catches [...]
Former Patriots wide receiver Chad Johnson was arrested Saturday for domestic assault after he allegedly headbutted his wife, Evelyn Lozada. Johnson and Lozada allegedly went out for dinner, and when they returned home, Lozada found a receipt for a box of condoms, sparking a fight, according to the Orlando Sun Sentinel. “It gets pretty heated,” [...]
Red Sox pitcher John Lackey, who has missed the entire season due to recovery from Tommy John surgery, is apparently quite thirsty. Hey, a man’s got to drink right? Well, this man, who was at the center of the team’s “chicken and beer” controversy during last September’s historic collapse, apparently prefers Bud Light (two of [...]
The Red Sox have placed outfielder Carl Crawford on waivers, according to Ken Rosenthal, and that’s not necessarily surprising. With Crawford now on waivers, many things can happen. If he gets claimed (very unlikely), the Red Sox can: Let him and his entire contract (he’s owed $102.5 million after this year from 2013-2017) go to [...]
The Red Sox have been pretty good as of late, and the Yankees have been pretty bad as of late, so if you’re one of the few remaining optimistic Red Sox fans, Wednesday could mean a lot. Instead, the Yankees woke up, beating down the Orioles 12-3…and the Red Sox were taken to town by [...]
Josh Beckett was not traded at the non-waivers trading deadline, but he still made headlines on Tuesday. Beckett, who started Tuesday night’s game against the Tigers, left the game with what looked to be a back issue. He left with the bases loaded and two outs in the third inning. When he came out, fans [...]
Red Sox outfielder Ryan Sweeney has single-handedly (pun intended) wiped out any trade value he had by engaging in a boxing match with a dugout door at Fenway Park. The door won. Sweeney will miss the next eight weeks to recover from a likely broken hand.
Since everyone is so excited about Fenway Park’s 100th anniversary (wait, you’re not?), PETA decided to join the craze and buy a brick. Their inscribed message, on the surface, has nothing to do with protecting animals or their organization: “Lead Our Bo Sox To Early Runs! Late Inning Blasts! Easy Routs! A Trophy In Our [...]
