Ducks with jerseys and beards?? Must be World Series time. No big deal. pic.twitter.com/30ejC0ZQAJ — Sarah Connors (@sarah_connors) October 23, 2013 Apparently, the bronze ducklings located in Boston Common have a rich and storied heritage. For not being real ducklings. Located between a pond and the entrance to Boston Common on Charles and Beacon streets, […]The post Boston Common’s ducklings don Red Sox jerseys, beards for World Series (photo) appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.

(FenwayNation Photo)To paraphrase Winston Churchill, "Clay Buchholz has become a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma." After being on an early-season trajectory for the Cy Young Award, he missed three months with a poorly-defined neck/shoulder injury. His return from that injury has been uneven, and now we learn that he still has some "issues" with the...
This is the time of year when Tom Menino, the mayor of the city of Boston, really shines. The man who is commonly referred to as “Mumbles” among the internet community never fails to amaze the public with his lack of sports knowledge when one of Boston’s teams is pursuing a championship. With the World […]
Is Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester rubbing his left index finger on an illegal substance on the inside of his glove during Game 1 of the World Series?
Jake Peavy will start Game 3 of the World Series for the Boston Red Sox.
Red Sox manager John Farrell confirmed before Game 2 on Thursday night that he is flipping Peavy and Clay Buchholz. Farrell said Buchholz, who has an undisclosed ailment, could use an extra day of rest.
Buchholz gave up five runs in eight innings and two runs in five innings in his AL championship series starts...
How well do you know the Boston Red Sox and their beards?
Guess which beard belongs to which player and then check out the answers below.
Answers: 1. Shane Victorino; 2. Clay Bucholz; 3. Mike Carp; 4. Jacoby Ellsbury; 5. Jonny Gomes; 6. Michael Napoli; 7. Jarrod Saltalamacchia; 8. David Ross; 9. John Lackey; 10. Dustin Pedroia.
John Farrell‘s decision to start John Lackey in Game 2 of the World Series on Thursday was made primarily due to Lackey’s success pitching at home this season.
But the call did lead some to question whether Clay Buchholz, who pitched Game 2 of the ALCS, is fully healthy.
Buchholz is dealing with some “physical issues,” WEEI.com’s Rob Bradford reported early Wednesday, citing...
The Boston Red Sox announced the team’s 25-man active roster for the 2013 World Series with the St. Louis Cardinals and manager John Farrell is sticking with southpaw Franlin Morales.
Fellow-lefty Matt Thornton, who threw a simulated game at Fenway Park on Tuesday, was rumored to be taking Morales’ World Series roster spot after Morales struggled in Game 6 of the ALCS.
He’s an incredible singer and guitar player, he’s in the Hall of Fame, and most importantly, he’s from Boston. James Taylor was invited by the Red Sox to sing both the National Anthem and America The Beautiful Thursday night and, as if anyone expected anything less, delivered a terrific performance.
Amidst a roaring ovation, Taylor entered the field between the top and bottom...
The Boston Red Sox took a 3-0 lead against St. Louis Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright in the first inning of Game 1 of the 2013 World Series at Fenway Park.
Boston had appeared to be the victim of a blown call when the second base umpire called Dustin Pedroia out even though Cardinals shortstop Peter Kozma never fully gloved the ball. Red Sox manager John Farrell came out of the...
This really gives a new meaning to the phrase “diehard fan.”
The Red Sox beat the Cardinals in Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday night, and while the final score of 8-1 may make it seem like a one-sided affair, the rest of the series won’t necessarily go as smoothly. One Harvard medical professional, Dr. Michael Craig Miller, has put together a list of suggestions and...
For the fourth time in history, the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals will square off in baseball’s fall classic. For the third time in those matchups, the Red Sox would grab a victory in Game 1, as Boston took an easy 8-1 victory on Wednesday evening at Fenway Park.
Out of the gates the Red Sox would take control of the game and would set sail on the Cardinals, besting...
BOSTON -- Just when it seemed Michael Wacha had cracked, the St. Louis Cardinals began scooting around the bases and tied the World Series.
Wacha beat John Lackey in a matchup of present and past rookie sensations, and this time it was the Cardinals' turn to take advantage of sloppy fielding as St. Louis topped the Boston Red Sox 4-2 Thursday night to even the Series at a game...
World Series Game One Preview:
-Boston, Fenway Park
Jon Lester vs. Adam Wainwright
-Lester has very limited experience against Cardinals. In one career start he allowed two earned runs on nine hits. Lester did not factor into the decision, he did strikeout three and issued one walk. Lester is 2-1 this postseason with an ERA of 2.33. He has struck out 14 while walking seven in 19...

There was all kinds of resentment, a dysfunctional coaching staff,
