For our latest podcast, we’re joined yet again by our good pal Jen Royle, and discussion topics include Koji Uehara’s sideburns, the race for the AL East, Jen’s upcoming charity event on September 16, drinking with Mike Napoli, Jenny Dell in a dunk tank, flavored vodkas, things you don’t want to do on webcam, Brian Daubach getting bodyslammed, and Red’s spank bank.
It’s forty minutes of your life that you’ll never get back. But Jen does her best David Ortiz impression which, in my opinion, is worth the price of admission alone.

Mike Napoli started the scoring and finished the scoring Saturday. In between, the Red Sox’ offense continued its recent trend of beating the crap out of opposing pitchers.
The Red Sox have ridden their starting pitching for much of the second half, but in recent days, the bats have become engulfed in flames. The hot-hitting Sox broke out the big sticks again Saturday, blasting...
This time the seventh inning comeback belonged to the Red Sox. And this time the team rallying from behind never looked back once it got ahead.
A night after the New York Yankees scored six times in the seventh to erase a five-run deficit only to lose in extra innings the Red Sox erased a five-run lead with five runs and tacked on four more to stun the Yankees 12-8.
Mike Napoli hit two home runs, Jonny Gomes and prized rookie Xander Bogaerts also connected, and the Boston Red Sox kept up their dizzying scoring spree at Yankee Stadium, bashing New York 13-9 Saturday for their fifth straight win. The AL East leaders became the first visiting team in more than a century to score at least nine runs on three straight days against the Yankees. In...
AL East Standing: 1st Weekly Record: 5-2 Current Record: 87-58 (Every weekend I will attempt to give some brief thoughts on the past week for the Boston Red Sox. It will be filled with hopes, frustrations, exhilaration, pain, and puns.) 59 That’s the amount of runs of the Red Sox have scored in the past 7 days, a clip of 8.4 runs per game. Of course three of those games went...
Mike Napoli hit a tying grand slam in the seventh, Shane
Victorino had a go-ahead homer one inning later and the Boston Red
Sox rallied past the New York Yankees 12-8 on Friday night for
their fourth straight victory.

Red Sox Nation: are you starting to believe?
One night removed from coughing up a five-run lead to the Yankees in the seventh inning before eventually staging a come-from-behind win in extra innings, Mike Napoli...
Mike Napoli has been absolutely mashing the ball of late, especially this weekend against the Yankees.
The Red Sox’ slugger hit two home runs on Saturday and one on Friday and has driven in eight runs in the Sox’ three wins in New York already this weekend. On Sunday, the team decided to give Napoli a much-needed rest, starting Mike Carp in his place at first base.
The Red Sox are absolutely on fire.
In case you’ve blinked between now and Wednesday, this bearded group of extraordinary gentlemen have pounded out 17 home runs, 62 hits, and 54 runs in their last 4 games.
But the unsung hero throughout all of this is a man who’s never even touched a bat this year, a man with no facial hair, a man who dishes out dangerously painful high fives...
How the heck is Koji Uehara doing this? And why was he the Boston Red Sox's fourth choice to close this season when no reliever in baseball is hotter?
I've got a whole bunch of crazy numbers for you, but let's start with these:
Entering Thursday night, Uehara's average fastball speed of 89.2 mph was the second-slowest among closers with at least 10 saves, according...
(Photo by Rich Schultz/Getty Images)This could get habit-forming. The Red Sox scored nine runs off the Yankee bullpen in the seventh and eighth to take a satisfying 12-8 win in the Bronx. The big blow was a two-out, two-strike, off-the-top-of-the-right-field-wall grand slam by Mike Napoli that tied the game. Then, Shane Victorino did his thing again—a game winning two-run HR. The...
Beard or no beard, the Boston Red Sox are mashing the baseball right now. Another four home runs Saturday gave the team 17 over its last four games – during a span in which the Red Sox have scored 54 runs. It was Mike Napoli (twice), Jonny Gomes and Xander Bogaerts supplying the power Saturday afternoon. Bogaerts hit his first career home run...
(Photo by Rich Schultz/Getty Images)In a matter of minutes this one went from the worst loss of the year to one of the most satisfying wins. The Red Sox blew a 7-2 lead in the seventh inning, only to tie it 8-8 in the ninth against Mariano Rivera and win it in the tenth against Joba 'The Mutt' Chamberlain. A two-out single by Mike Napoli got it started in the ninth—and...
In the beginning of the season, the Red Sox lacked an effective closer. Now, entering the final month of the regular season, the Sox are without a real setup man to hold down the fort for the lights-out Koji Uehara.
According to MLB.com’s Jason Mastrodonato, “only two bullpens in the Majors have allowed inherited runners to score more often than...
I think it’s safe to say the Red Sox have vanquished the demons of Septembers past. The 2011 and 2012 teams each managed just 7 wins in September. Today, September 7th, was their 6th win this month. Last season the team scored a total of 78 runs in the entire month of September. So far this month, the Sox have scored 63 runs in just 7 games.
Today was a big win for both Lackey...
