The Biogenesis-related suspensions were announced Monday afternoon, and the punishments had the baseball world buzzing.
Red Sox Nation knows that Jonny Gomes is a competitor first and foremost and his reaction fit his reputation. Recalling a walk-off home run that recently-suspended Jhonny Peralata hit against Boston this season, Gomes noted how unfair that victory was as every game matters in the tight division race they’re in with the Rays.
Check out the above video to hear more of Gomes’ reaction, as well as Shane Victorino‘s.

One of the more interesting topics that continues to surround the 2013 Red Sox is who will play on the left side of the infield.
Right now, it looks like the plan is to have Stephen Drew play shortstop, but the plan at third base remains unclear. Boston is switching between Brandon Snyder and Brock Holt at third for now, but could it be waiting for the right moment to call up Xander...
DUANE BURLESON/ASSOCIATED PRESS According to a report from ESPNBoston.com, Boston Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino was named the American League Player of the Week on Monday. The Wailuku, Hawaii native certainly had a week to remember last week as he batted .400 (12-for-30) with two home runs, three doubles, seven runs scored, and six RBIs. Against the Seattle Mariners last...
John Lackey pitched another gem on Monday night in Houston, going six innings, striking out ten batters and only walking two. Unfortunately, Lackey also was tagged with the loss, dropping his record to 7-9 for the season.
During the baseballs stone-ages, Lackey’s under .500 record would be a reflection of the rough season that Lackey was having, or maybe how John Lackey somehow...
It's expected that injured starting pitcher Clay Buchholz will throw a bullpen session Tuesday in Houston.
This marks Buchholz first time on a mound since July 14. Buchholz got the green light from the team medical staff after completing a flat-ground session Sunday where he threw at "about 80 percent intensity."
"The last two...
The Boston Red Sox open their 10-game road trip Monday night against the lowly Astros at Minute Maid Ballpark. The Red Sox continued their success this weekend by taking two of three from the second place Diamonbacks. The Red Sox dropped a close one 7-6 to open the series on Friday but were able to beat NL Cy Young candidate Patrick Corbin on Saturday in Jake Peavy's debut...
If you've followed the Red Sox this season you know that the backend of the rotation has been stellar. Thanks to the resurgence of one John Lackey, the three thru five spots have carried the load, and kept the Red Sox afloat during many a games.
However, Felix Doubront has somehow continued to fly below the radar (or hidden within Lackey&...
Jacoby Ellsbury homered twice and Jonny Gomes added a three-run shot and the Boston Red Sox rallied from a five-run deficit for a 15-10 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night.
Catcher Ryan Lavarnway tied a major league record with four passed balls in the first inning as he struggled to handle pitches from knuckleballer Steven Wright, and the Astros took a 3-0 lead.
Drake Britton earned his first major league win Wednesday night, throwing two scoreless innings in a 5-4 win for the Red Sox.
A career-starter in the minor leagues, Britton said he’s getting used to pitching out of the bullpen. Things didn’t always go so smoothly for the left-hander, though, but some wise words from Pedro Martinez helped keep the youngster on track.
BETWEEN THE LINES – Don Orsillo’s tweeting (@Don Orsillo) about his love of cooking led to conversations about his cooking during Red Sox broadcasts, which in turn attracted the attention of The Boston Globe food section correspondent Andrea Pyenson. She reached out to NESN at the beginning of June to see if Don would like to feature one of his favorite dishes in the Globe’s...
BOSTON (AP) -- Felix Doubront pitched seven shutout innings to continue his run of strong starts and Jacoby Ellsbury drove in two runs to lift the Red Sox to a 4-0 win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.
It was Boston's seventh win in nine games, completing a 5-2 homestand. The AL East leaders play 16 of the next 19 away from Fenway Park, beginning Monday night in Houston.
Every week, statistician Chuck Waseleski gives his “obscure but telling facts” about the Red Sox to the Boston Globe. This week, we’re giving them to you with our own analysis for each one.
The Red Sox are 40-13 when Jacoby Ellsbury scores a run.
What that means for the Sox:
Let’s hope that Sox management can get Ellsbury to stay past...
Brandon McCarthy was sharp early on, but the Diamondbacks failed to score in Sunday’s 4-0 loss in Boston, capping off a series loss after a very promising win in the opener. McCarthy had good stuff early on in his return from the disabled list. A high pitch count doomed him and he left the game after 4.1 innings, giving up two runs and striking out five.
The Red Sox clawed their way out of yet another hole tonight, beating the lowly Astros 15-10 in Houston to notch their 69th win of the year, matching last year's total.
John Farrell's decision to rest his usual rotation and start Steven Wright looked shaky, as Wright lasted just one inning and gave up three runs. Replacement Brandon Workman didn't fare much better...

'Stros blank Sox? That just happened!
Monday night's Astros-Red Sox game was a pitcher's duel that went in favor of Houston's Brett Oberholtzer, who pitched seven innings of four hit ball for his second career win. Credit must also be given to John Lackey, the hard luck loser who went six plus innings and struck out ten. The...

Luckily for the Sox, the first stop is in Houston, where Boston will face the struggling Astros (36-74). The Sox have mopped up on the American League’s newest arrivals so far this year, sweeping them...
