Nomar Garciaparra would have liked to seen this more representatives from this version of the Red Sox on hand to say good bye to a Red Sox legend. But he also knows that it's about more than that. The former Sox shortstop spoke with WEEI on Friday afternoon, and he reflected on the life of Johnny Pesky, praising the ambassador, while also expressing issues with the Red Sox no-shows. "There's definitely some disappointment," Garciaparra said on Mutt and Merloni. "You would have liked to have seen more there. There's no question about that. But at the same time, for me,...

Sox will call up Iglesias and Lin in preparation of trade

As time passes, the less likely it is that the Sox will not walk away from this deal. In fact, Tom Werner wants this thing done very soon. To fill roster spots that will be available as a result of the trade, the Sox will call up Jose Iglesias, and outfielder, Che-Hsuan Lin. CSNNE: In anticipation of their megadeal with the Dodgers being finalized today, the Red Sox have summoned...

Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett Trade Is Statement of Its Own for Red Sox, No Matter the Results

The sentiment for the 2012 Red Sox (and really, the end-of-2011 Red Sox as well) was never that this team lacked the pieces to win. From proven bats to fiery starters, Boston was loaded with talent, and it had young help waiting to come up, too. The problem throughout the much-maligned last September, creeping into this year and dragging the team down hard as the summer went on,...

Adrian Gonzalez Tweets Thanks to Red Sox Fans as Dodgers Trade Nears Completion

Nick Punto was the first to tip his cap to Boston and its fans. Now Adrian Gonzalez is joining him. Punto and Gonzalez, two pieces of a giant trade that is also sending Josh Beckett and Carl Crawford to the Dodgers, both bid farewell to Boston on Saturday as reports swirled that their trade to the Dodgers had been completed and they were already flying to Los Angeles.

Franklin Morales Gets Another Chance to Prove Himself as Starter Against Team That Isn't New York (Video)

As long as Franklin Morales isn't playing the Yankees, he's been solid. It's good news, then, that the Red Sox aren't playing the Yankees on Thursday night. Instead, Morales will face the Angels in the hopes of avoiding a sweep and continuing to build his resume as a starter for the Red Sox. The Halos are still a pretty good team, though, so he will have his work...

Video: Mauro Gomez Hits First Career MLB Home Run

Mauro Gomez has been called up three different times to the Boston Red Sox this year. In his first two stints, he hadn't hit a home run. Well now in his third cup of coffee with the local nine, Gomez can now say that he has hit a home run in the big leagues as he hit a solo homer off Kansas City Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie in the 2nd inning of Saturday night's game....

Gonzalez and Beckett Claimed By L.A.

It now rests in the hands of Red Sox upper management where two of their star players will ultimately end up. According to a report from ESPN ScoreCenter, both first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and pitcher Josh Beckett were claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Dodgers, leaving the Sox to either trade them, allow them to leave, or retain them. They are also apparently trying to shop...

2012 Boston Red Sox Magic Numbers

Sox Get A Win Amid Trade Talk

While everyone was talking about the blockbuster trade and if and when it was going to happen, the Red Sox took the mound and actually ended their losing streak.  Jon Lester took the mound for the Sox and there was the much needed return of David Ortiz.   Lester took the mound and hoped to build on his last few outings.  Lester was given a couple of runs in the bottom of the...

Oh, well... so much for the Greatest Team Evah.I feel like the mutt reporter in the final moments of "King Kong." A kid points to the gorilla on the sidewalk, and I say, "It wasn't them planes that killed the beast. T'was beauty that killed the beast." No, I'm not saying Carl Crawford is pretty.The word is hubris, folks. Hubris. Whenever the dictator...
