After honoring the victims and the survivors of the Boston
Marathon bombings, the Red Sox kept on with their best start in 11
years by beating the Kansas City Royals 4-3 Saturday as David Ortiz
played his first game since last summer and Daniel Nava hit a
three-run homer in the eighth inning.

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here...
highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as
satisfying as a good morning dump.
As far as David
Ortiz and Pawtucket Red Sox manager Gary DiSarcina are concerned,
that’s where the Boston designated hitter should be Friday night when
the team begins a homestand against Kansas City...
David Ortiz encapsulated all of the emotion and passion that was present in Saturday’s pregame ceremonies at Fenway Park when he took to the microphone.
In Ortiz’s first game back, he thanked the city and law enforcement, and also dropped the f-bomb stating, “This is our [expletive] city.” Red Sox nation didn’t seem to have a problem with the sentiment, and neither did...
Like the Bruins before them, the Red Sox spent a good deal of time before their opening pitch on Saturday paying tribute to those who were affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. The organization held a moment of silence for those who lost their lives and gave recognition to the first responders, local heroes and law enforcement.
David Ortiz was then given the floor.
“This jersey that we wear today, it doesn’t say ‘Red Sox,’ it says ‘Boston. We want to thank you Mayor Menino, Governor Patrick, the whole police department for the great job they did this past week. This is our (expletive) city.”
That was David Ortiz yesterday before the Red Sox played the Kansas City Royals. Ortiz displayed an abundance of emotion that many people were...
Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz grabbed the mic after the first pitch was thrown out to say a few words on behalf of the Organization to the fans at Fenway. They had an incredible pre-game tribute and then Big Papi got everyone excited when he said “This is our f***ing city” at the 40 second mark of the video. A very solid use of cursing in public.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Many of life’s issues could be avoided if more people accepted the simple adage. In the case of the Red Sox, though, adding David Ortiz to a mix that’s responsible for rattling off six straight wins hardly means trying to fix a well-oiled machine.
Instead, let’s just say that adding Ortiz is like slapping some new rims on an already sweet...
During an emotional pregame ceremony prior to the Red Sox’ first game back at Fenway since the Boston Marathon tragedy, David Ortiz took the microphone and addressed a sold-out crowd. An emotional Ortiz, who has called Boston home since 2003, proclaimed that “this is our ******* city, and nobody gonna dictate us with it.” It was a pretty awesome moment, check it out.
If there was any more appropriate time to use public profanity, this may have been it. In his return from injury, Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz spoke to the Fenway crowd during a pregame tribute to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings as well as the law enforcement that helped bring suspect two [...]
Fantasy owners--set your rosters accordingly. David Ortiz is preparing to come back to the Show. Big Papi could be back in the lineup as early as Friday night's game against the Cleveland Indians (he was not in the starting lineup).
The big man has been rehabbing with the minor league affiliate of the Red Sox in Pawtucket. In Thursday's rehab game he hit this one out of...
It’s not goodbye, Jackie Bradley Jr. It’s simply see you later.
Bradley has been optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket in order for David Ortiz to be activated, according to CSNNE.com’s Sean McAdam. Bradley will reportedly join the PawSox in Rochester on Friday, while Ortiz will join the big league club in Boston.
Ortiz, whose 2012 season was derailed by an injury, has yet to appear...
The Boston Bruins did their best to win on an emotional day on Saturday for all Boston sports teams. They fell short in their quest.
Trailing 2-1 in the 8th, Daniel Nava made sure the Boston Red Sox wouldn't suffer the same fate with a three-run home run in an eventual 4-3 win over the Kansas City Royals.
The Red Sox will be back in action on Saturday afternoon after an unplanned day off on Friday due to the manhunt that sent the Boston area into a lockdown.
The Sox are getting a familiar face back into the lineup with David Ortiz playing designated hitter and batting cleanup against James Shields and the Royals. Ortiz went 4 for 18 in six rehab starts in Pawtucket. He hit one home...

I started writing some nonsense about how the Sox 4-3 victory over the Royals this afternoon was symbolic of the city of Boston in the wake of the Marathon tragedy. 'Never give up' and all that. But America's pastime is meant to be a reprieve from all of that. As a wrote this morning, this game was a great way to clear our minds of this...
Major League Baseball and its players association are donating $500,000 to the fund set up to help victims of the Boston Marathon bombings as part of a $646,500 contribution baseball is sending to the One Fund Boston.
The Red Sox are pitching in $100,000 and the Red Sox Foundation is sending along a $46,500 check from donations by Red Sox fans at Fenway Park over the weekend. A...
You have to give credit where credit is due. Boston Strong, Red Sox Nation may very well be the greatest baseball fans in Major Leagues. If not the greatest, at least the most knowledgable and compassionate fans out there. On Saturday afternoon there was a special tribute held for the victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy. In the aftermath of Monday’s deadly bombings at...
