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 […]

Sleepy Yankees Fan Sues MLB, ESPN for Defamation

A 26-year-old man is suing Major League Baseball, the New York Yankees, and ESPN New York for character defamation after cameras caught him slumped over, sleeping on April 13th 2014, at Yankee Stadium as the Bronx Bombers faced off against the Boston Red Sox. Andrew Rector is seeking $10 million in the suit he filed […]

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. Fortunately for at least one lucky Red Sox player, MLB requires that each roster has at least one player from each team. […]

Jon Lester Willing to Negotiate Contract Extension Mid-Season, Reports Say

Last week, CBS Sports reported that a contract extension for Red Sox ace Jon Lester would not come during the season, making the lefthander a free agent for the first time in his career after the season. According to WEEI’s Rob Bradford, Lester would consider negotiating with the team during the season, as long as […]

Video: Jerry Remy Loses Tooth on Red Sox Broadcast

For those of you Boston fans depressed by the fact that the Red Sox are on the verge of being swept by the lowly Chicago Cubs — led by former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein, no less — here is the moment of levity that you’ve been looking for. Jerry Remy lost one of his teeth […]

Buchholz Activated from DL, Capuano Designated for Assignment

After making two rehab starts in Pawtucket, Clay Buchholz has been activated from the 15-day disabled list to make his first start in almost a month against the Seattle Mariners Wednesday night. He’ll be looking to salvage the finale after the Red Sox dropped the first two games of the series by scores of 12-3 […]

Did Red Sox DFA Sizemore Just to Avoid $500K in Bonuses?

Attempting to make a comeback after injuries forced a two-year hiatus from professional baseball, Grady Sizemore was the feel-good story of spring training for the Boston Red Sox. Three months later, that good will is long gone. The Red Sox designated Sizemore for assignment on Tuesday after the former All-Star managed to hit just .216/.288/.324 in  52 games, striking out […]

Video: Mike Napoli Hits Walk-Off Home Run Against Twins

The Red Sox completed a three-game sweep of the Minnesota Twins Wednesday despite only scoring FIVE runs in the series. Here are two of them, courtesy of David Ortiz (first) and then… Mike Napoli: Your browser does not support iframes.

Video: Brock Holt Saves the Day (Again) with Web Gem

Is there anything Brock Holt can’t do? Seriously, this is starting to border on the ridiculous. It’s crazy enough that he leads the Boston Red Sox with a .338 batting average after notching another multi-hit game (2-for-4) and scoring both runs in Tuesday night’s 2-1 win over the Minnesota Twins. But now he’s making highlight […]

Red Sox DFA Grady Sizemore, Call Up Garin Cecchini

On Tuesday afternoon, the Boston Red Sox designated outfielder Grady Sizemore for assignment, and recalled infielder Garin Cecchini who made his major league debut earlier this season. The move may mark the end of Sizemore’s major league career, as the 31-year old attempted to revitalize his once great career with the Red Sox after years of being […]

Brock Holt: Baseball Player or Superhero?

“Who is this Brock Holt guy,” I, and many other Red Sox fans asked ourselves back in mid-May. He sounds like a superhero. The name ‘Brock Holt’ has a lot of pizzazz. Like Peter Parker, Clark Kent, or Bruce Wayne. I will admit that I wrongfully dismissed him, “Ehh, he’s probably just some fill-in prospect.” May 17, […]

Video: Jackie Bradley Jr. Makes Catch Against Monster, Doubles Runner Off First

Jackie Bradley Jr. is batting .203 with a .290 on base percentage for the 2014 season. His slugging percentage is a paltry .292, and in case you’re wondering, no, it’s not good when your OBP and your SLG are equivalent (unless your name is Barry Bonds, maybe). In the past seven days, Bradley has (somehow) […]

Where Are They Now? Catching Up With Former Red Sox

Since the Boston Red Sox have been playing like garbage yet again, let’s attempt to ignore that and alphabetically catch up with some old steadies and see what they’re doing nowadays…. Alfredo Aceves – Remember Alfredo Aceves? Yes, this Alfredo Aceves. It appears taking his talents back to the New York Yankees didn’t work out […]

Four Red Sox Ejected, But Pierzynski Delivers Walk-Off Win Over Rays

After the brawl between the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays last Sunday at Tropicana Field, some carryover shenanigans between the AL East rivals would have gotten lower odds than California Chrome to win the Belmont Stakes. Still, one would think two professional baseball teams could avoid having tempers escalate as quickly as an […]

Red Sox Send Lavarnway to DL, Call Up Alex Hassan as 1B Replacement

First baseman and Massachusetts native Alex Hassan will join the Boston Red Sox after Ryan Lavarnway was placed on the disabled list with a sore left wrist. Hassan is one of the only viable options to fulfill first base duties with Mike Napoli also on the DL. Lavarnway had just arrived in Boston for the […]
