The Outside Corner:
Boston Red Sox
Tampa Bay Rays
The Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 on Tuesday night in Game 4 of the ALDS, winning their series three games to one.
Joe Maddon went all-out in this game, using every pitcher in his bullpen after an ineffective Jeremy Hellickson recorded just three outs and faced only six batters. And for six innings, it worked, as Boston was held scoreless for the first two-thirds of the game. But they broke through in the seventh after Jake McGee walked Xander Bogaerts with one out. After striking out Will Middlebrooks, McGee allowed a single to Jacoby Ellsbury to put men on the corners for Shane Victorino. Joel Peralta replaced McGee and promptly allowed Bogaerts to score on a wild pitch to tie the game at one while Ellsbury moved up two bases. Victorino then hit a slow roller to short and touched first safely ahead of the throw from Yunel Escobar, giving the Red Sox a 2-1 lead.
The Rays offense couldn't do much of anything against an effective Jake Peavy. In 5 2/3 inning...

The title sounds a lot more salacious than this clip actually is. But you have to love Clay’s nonchalant expression as he douses Jenny D with Bud Light, which is a far better use of that stuff than actually drinking it. Also, Tom Caron’s, “Welcome to the party, Jenny Dell” has become my new catchphrase. At least since 2:00am this morning.

Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz demonstrates his "victory dance" in a new CapriSun commercial to promote their Kids vs Pros Playground Throwdown Event.
Fortunately this is only a commercial, or else Big Papi would be starting up a bench clearing brawl with those moves.
In the CapriSun contest, kids between the ages of 6-17 can enter to get a chance to take...
As Rays players headed their separate ways for the offseason, some left some good-bye messages via Twitter to put a final stamp on the season.Very proud of our guys and our fans. I think we played to our potential. We took it about as far as we could go. Boston just beat us.

Koji Uehara is human. He’s also a ninja.
OK, maybe only one of those is true. But Clay Buchholz revealed Sunday — before Uehara suffered a Game 3 loss Monday that had his teammates saying that he’s only human — that the Red Sox have a unique nickname for the Japanese closer.
“We call him ‘The Ninja,’” Buchholz said Sunday. “He throws two pitches and it always seems...
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. --Tampa Bay Rays left-hander David Price admits he could be traded in the offseason.
A day after the Rays' season ended with a 3-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox at Tropicana Field in the American League Division Series, the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner acknowledged that a trade this winter is possible for him. The former first overall pick in the 2007...
Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price handled himself in a regrettable manner after giving up seven runs in a Game 2 ALDS loss to the Boston Red Sox. For starters, the left-hander ripped David Ortiz for admiring a home run. He then took to Twitter to brag about all of his accomplishments during his MLB […]
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- A day later, Tampa Bay Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg is still excited about the result of Game 3 in this American League Division Series.
Sternberg called catcher Jose Lobaton's game-ending, 412-foot solo homer Monday "absolutely the most unexpected moment." The hit, which became the third to splashdown into the Rays Touch Tank in center...
True to the 2013 Red Sox, Boston punched their ticket to the ALCS in dramatic fashion.
The Rays used nine pitchers in the contest, the Sox staged a seventh-inning rally and Koji Uehara tossed the final four outs of the game to close out the eventful Game 4 at Tropicana Field.
Tampa struck first in the fourth inning after David DeJesus‘ single into right field scored Yunel Escobar...
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The after-party in the Tampa Bay Rays' clubhouse was predictably wild and free, both traits that fit these survivors well.
There were yells and drums banged and other familiar noises when catcher Jose Lobaton walked through a corridor with a wide grin and his blue hat turned backward, the man of the moment pausing to blow a kiss to a fan nearby.
This clip is strait out of America’s Funniest Home Videos. As you can see here, David Ortiz is pitching a little batting practice for his nephew. The Ortiz family tradition of batting left handed continues, and maybe his long ball capabilities too. The nephew swings for the fences and sends one straight for the nether region, sending the Red Sox’s $14 million star to the ground...
The Rays lived to fight another day on Monday night, beating the Red Sox with some late-inning dramatics.
The Red Sox jumped out to an early 3-0 lead, striking first with one run to start off the game, and adding two more in the fifth inning. But with one swing of the bat, Evan Longoria erased the deficit, and knotted the score up at 3-3 with a towering home run in the bottom of...
Rays ace LHP David Price said Wednesday night he expects to be traded this off-season.
"If you go with what's been done in the past I guess you're going to have to think you're going to get traded'' Price said. "That's kind of the way it's happened with this organization when pitchers kind of get to this period in their career. We've seen...
Free agency begins five days after the end of the World Series. As in other recent offseasons, FanGraphs is once again facilitating this offseason a contract-crowdsourcing project, the idea being to harness the wisdom of the crowds to the end of better understanding the 2013-14 free-agent market.
Note that, this year, in addition to asking readers to estimate the years/dollars each...
Looks like we might have another Big Papi coming up the ranks. See this video and GIF of a little Papi (David Ortiz's nephew), swinging a bat just like his uncle. Hilariousness ensues, as he nails Papi right where the sun don't shine. Should the Red Sox just sign him now? I think so.
