MLB Fines Red Sox for Lineup vs. Marlins

This might explain why Red Sox owner John Henry decided to tweet his frustration about the entire ordeal with the Marlins.

League rules stipulate that a minimum of four […]

John Henry Zings Marlins on Twitter

One wouldn’t expect a spring training game between the Red Sox and the Marlins to be eventful. They play in different leagues, don’t have a history of being rivals, and couldn’t be on further ends of the success spectrum. Then again, not every spring training game gets a “super premium” designation; apparently tempers run hot […]

Red Sox Won’t Raise 2013 Ticket Prices, Avoid PR Disaster (For Once)

In their first positive public relations move in recent memory, the Boston Red Sox have decided NOT to raise ticket prices for the 2013 season.

Bobby Valentine Thinks He’ll Stay with Red Sox in 2013; Ben Cherington Disagrees

Should the Red Sox Fire Bobby V? SoB Debates…

Nick: To quote Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, this season has been nothing short of miserable. Last place in the division. Who knows how many games under .500.

Should The Red Sox Owners Sell the Team?

An article surfaced today on foxbusiness.com, discussing the idea of the Red Sox being sold.

Nothing seems imminent, or even remotely close of happening, […]

Gonzalez, Pedroia, Others Bash Bobby Valentine in Meeting with Red Sox Owners

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 […]

Red Sox Doubles Clobber Darvish in Win

The Red Sox have been desperately looking for the type of game where everything seems to click, after weeks of ups and downs keeping the team around .500 filled with inconsistencies on the field.
