Randy Moss Wants to Play for Patriots: What Happened to Traditional Retirement?

According to Pro Football Talk, (retired?) wide receiver Randy Moss wants to return to the Patriots. That’s a little surprising. Considering that Moss presumably called it quits due to lack of interest, Randy probably doesn’t have all that much leverage in choosing where (and if) he wants to play at all. And in case anyone […]

Thank You, Mike! Lowell Doubles, Red Sox Earn Split in Doubleheader

The Red Sox began the final series of the season after a 20-minute ceremony on Saturday afternoon honoring Mike Lowell, who is retiring after the season.

Sox Defense Plays With Fire, Finally Burned in Seventh

For six innings, Josh Beckett and the Red Sox infield danced around walks, infield singles, sacrifice ground outs and bunts. In the seventh inning, the music finally ended, as two RBI singles and an errant throw on a bunt allowed three runs to score. Wednesday night at U.S. Cellular Field, the Chicago White Sox beat […]

Mike Lowell To Retire: The Tale of Two Contracts

Coming off a World Series win with the Marlins in 2003 and a strong season in 2004, Mike Lowell headed into 2005 with high hopes for another big year in south Florida. Instead, he flopped like a fish out of water, bashing just eight home runs in 150 games that season, which turned out to […]

Red Sox Swept at Home in Doubleheader

Things just keep getting worse for Boston. On Saturday, the Red Sox’ playoff hopes had another nail put in their coffin, as the Red Sox were swept by the White Sox, both times by the score of 3-1. The losses leave the Red Sox 10.0 games back of the Yankees (a season-worst), 2.5 games back […]

Scutaro Error Proves Costly as Red Sox Fall to Orioles

Marco Scutaro’s throw sailed into right field. Boston’s playoff hopes may have sailed away with it.

Crawford Crushes Red Sox; Boston Now 6 1/2 Back in Both Races

It’s been almost five years since any Boston Red Sox catcher threw out Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Carl Crawford. He has stolen 35 consecutive bases. Sunday night, when the Red Sox and Rays played the rubber match of their three-game series at Tropicana Field, he stole no bases. Instead, he did his damage with his […]

Red Sox Walk Off With Win In Extra Frames

The Red Sox certainly have a flare for the dramatic. One day after having their tuchases handed to them, the Sox walked off with a win in 11 innings 5-4. The game progressed with both starting pitchers throwing well, effectively scattering hits/walks/errors to prevent any offense from occurring, until the 3rd, that is. With one […]

Sox Pound Blue Jays, Gain Ground in Wild Card Race

It was the kind of offensive display that any pitching staff would salivate over. The boys of summer needed a laugher in their favor for a change, and got it on Wednesday night, as the Boston Red Sox out-slugged the Toronto Blue Jays on their way to a 10-1 victory. While the Yankees managed to avoid […]

Homers Fly Like Canadian Geese as Red Sox Out-Slug Blue Jays

After splitting with the Yankees, the faintest of playoff hopes remains for the Boston Red Sox. But to keep that hope from dying, they would need to continue to dominate their rivals from north of the Niagara. The Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays began their four-game series Tuesday night at the Rogers Center […]

Carlos Delgado Signs Minor League Deal With Red Sox

In the wake of the injury to Youk, the Red Sox have signed first baseman Carlos Delgado to a minor league deal. Delgado was sidelined early on in 2009 during his last season with the Mets with hip problems, and hasn’t played since. With Boston’s premier first baseman out for the season, signing Delgado became […]

Sox, Lackey Fall in New York

If you were wondering how long the Sox could keep it up against the hated Yankees, wonder no more; New York struck back against Boston’s relatively poor bats and pitching. Oh sure, it started well enough; Victor Martinez started the scoring in the 2nd with a jack out to left, followed by doubles from Adrian […]

Lowell HRs in Return; Sox Win After Near-Brawl With Tribe

When Kevin Youkilis was placed on the disabled list before Tuesday’s game with a muscle tear in his right thumb, admit it: if you once thought the Red Sox had a chance of making the playoffs, you now thought they had no chance. They may still have no chance, but at least they have an […]

Lowell Done With Rehab, Now What?

According to the Globe’s Peter Abraham, Red Sox corner infielder Mike Lowell is done with his rehab assignment in Pawtucket and is ready to come of the disabled list.  After going 11-22 with four doubles, four home runs, and 10 RBI in five games at Triple-A, Lowell has left the PawSox, and is on track […]
