Ryan Dempster has always had success pitching in his native Canada, but that all came at Olympic Stadium against the old Montreal Expos. He had never faced the only current Canadian team, the Toronto Blue Jays, north of the border until Thursday, when he made the start for Red Sox at Rogers Centre. NESN’s Jamie Erdahl caught up with the British Columbia native during Red Sox Gameday Live to discuss his feelings about pitching at “the place formerly known as the SkyDome.” Check out what he had to say in the video above.

What Shane Victorino's Bad Back Means and May Mean

The Red Sox biggest move of the offseason in terms of dollars committed was the signing of Shane Victorino. Coming off a disappointing 2012, his detractors described him as past his prime and at best a 4th outfielder. The Red Sox saw that Victorino's speed and defense were still there and gambled that 2012 was a blip when they signed him to a three-year deal. Early on he had...

Daniel Nava, Mike Carp, and David Ross - Important Puzzle Pieces

Daniel Nava, Mike Carp, and David Ross might not be the most well known Red Sox players, but they might be three of the most important players we have on our roster.

Nava has been solid in the outfield for us, coming up with a couple of big home...

After the game, he discussed a recent dip in his velocity, but didn’t seem all that concerned about it. He brushed...

Buchholz looks to continue early season form

The Red Sox have the best record in the Major Leagues on May 1st, a place in the standings that shocks all but the true Fenway Faithful. This hot start could be attributed to the hot start of Mike Napoli, or even the the resurgence the offense got when David Ortiz returned. But in reality Clay Buchholz is leading the way for the Boston Red Sox early this season. Buchholz is one of...

Jack Morris Accuses Clay Buchholz of Loading the Ball

Toronto Blue Jays Recall Brad Lincoln, Disable Josh Johnson

Toronto Blue Jays: Aberration or Reality

As of May 1, the Toronto Blue Jays are 9.5 games out of first place. At a quick glance this may not be the worst thing you’ve ever seen, but considering the hype surrounding this team, it might as well be.  The addition of Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, Josh Johnson, R.A. Dickey and Melky Cabrera were supposed to be the final pieces to the ultra-competitive AL East puzzle.  Reyes...

The Red Sox shortstop "problem"

Reflecting back, there’s a critical period in the Red Sox development which is largely under-remembered due to what happened in October, 2004. But it began in November, 1997 when the Sox actually traded for a young star – Pedro Martinez – as opposed to their typical coveting of used-to-be-stars approach. And it ended in July, 2004 when the new-era Sox traded away oft injured...

David Ortiz Tweets Message to Former Teammate Hanley Ramirez, Who Just Returned From DL Stint (Photo)

Ortiz sent out a tweet on Thursday afternoon wishing his “boy” the best of luck. Ramirez already returned with a bang — going deep in his first game on Tuesday and going 3-for...

Clay Buchholz’s Forearm Should Be Last of Blue Jays’ Worries After Slow Start to Season (Podcast)

The Toronto Blue Jays have stumbled out of the gate this season, and the fans up North are fanning the flames that fuel the hot seat for John Gibbons & Co. With the Jays in last place of the American League East, nothing has coming easy for Boston’s division rival, so it should come as little surprise that Toronto is now trying to make life difficult for the Red Sox and their...

Game changing no call

In last night's 9-7 loss against the Toronto Blue Jays, replacement umpire Clint Fagan quite possibly gave two runs to the Blue Jays. With the bases juiced in the third inning, Jarrod Saltalamacchia attempted to pick off Jose Bautista with a snap throw to first base. Salty had a good chance to get him at first but his elbow caught Fagan's mask and the ball ended up in right...
