Hall of Very Good:
Finally, a possible reason why FOX Sports cameras were so enamored with getting crowd shots during Saturday night's ALCS game between the Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers. They were helping suburban Boston police look for a suspect.
Police in Natick are on the lookout for a bearded white male wearing a Red Sox cap. No. Seriously.
This...according to their Facebook page:
On Saturday September 28, 2013 @ 11:15AM a young male was walking home with a friend near 249 North Main Street Rt. 27 (near Dunkin Donuts) when the juveniles noticed an older model green Expedition traveling southbound beeping its horn so as to get their attention. The operator of the vehicle, hanging his head out the window, in a loud voice said “DO YOU WANT A RIDE”. As the two Juveniles separated the same green Expedition turned around to go northbound passing one of the young males as it continued on. There was no other contact with the witnesses.
The person of interest was described as: White male approximately 45 to 48 years old, with a thin light brown, gray beard and thin mustache, wearing a well worn navy blue and white brim Red Sox hat.
Now, I don't want to be "Johnny Buzzkill" here, but let me get this straight...they're looking for a white dude, with a beard, wearing a Red Sox cap. Yeah, good luck with that this time of year.
Thankfully, the age rules out actors Ben Affleck, Ashton Kutcher and Jake Gyllenhaal. I'd hate to see them caught up in this debacle.

David Ortiz has accomplished some tremendous feats with the Red Sox. But to this day, one of the most impressive, manly and just plain awesome things that Ortiz has ever done came while he was still with the Twins.
Ortiz, who continues to add to his impressive resume, once hit a home run with a broken wrist while playing for the Twins in 2001. Sure, the blast came more than 12 years...
The Red Sox will send out Daniel Nava tonight in Game Four of the 2013 ALCS to face Detroit right-hander Doug Fister. The full Boston line-up is as follows: Jacoby Ellsbury CF, Shane Victorino RF, Dustin Pedroia 2B, David Ortiz DH, Mike Napoli 1B, Nava LF, Jarrod Saltalamacchia C, Stephen Drew SS, and Will Middlebrooks 3B. Jake Peavy will take the hill for The Carmine Hose.
Thanks to one giant swing from David Ortiz, Steve Horgan joined the likes of LOLCats, the “I like Turtles” kid and Ridiculously Photogenic Guy in an ever-growing group of Internet celebrities and memes.
That’s because Horgan, the Boston Police officer who patrols the Red Sox bullpen at Fenway Park, became something of an overnight pop culture star just by celebrating on the...
Ever since the ALCS began, all we’ve heard about is how the Red Sox are going to have to get past Justin Verlander. Because, as you’ve no doubt read and witnessed, he is “aces” this postseason and “unstoppable” and apparently reduces opponents to ash with just a wave of his hand.
In other words, it would behoove us to simply mark his start today in game three down as...
The Red Sox head back to Fenway up 3-2 in the ALCS thanks to a 4-3 win over the Tigers tonight in Detroit.
The big story: There was actually some offense for both teams. The Tigers and Red Sox each had double-digit hits tonight, despite respectable performances by Jon Lester and Anibal Sanchez. Neither starter was at his best -- especially Sanchez early on -- but neither gave a...
So, we might not be feeling too great after last night, but there's good news heading into today's Game 5. We have history on our side.
Nine years ago today, a magical thing happened. It was Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS. The Red Sox were down 3-0 to the Yankees and down 4-3 in the ninth inning. But then, hope started to glimmer. Kevin Millar drew a walk. Pinch runner Dave...
John Farrell is tinkering with his lineup yet again.
The Red Sox manager continues to look for the right mix against a loaded Detroit Tigers pitching staff, and the Sox will have their third different lineup in as many games against Detroit in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series on Tuesday.
While some might have thought Daniel Nava would be in the lineup against the...
Jose Iglesias has been a bit of a defensive wizard this season, and during the ALCS, but he got a taste of his own medicine Thursday night during Game 5.
Iglesias laid down a bunt in the fifth inning, and Sox starting pitcher Jon Lester hustled to glove the ball and ended up bobbling it, then scooping it up with enough time to make a hands-free toss to Mike Napoli at first base for...
(Photo by Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images)Jim Leyland's line-up moves seemed to work pretty well for him in Game Four, so look for John Farrell to make an analogous move on Thursday night. After last night's loss, Farrell stated, "I haven’t made a decision on [Thursday’s] lineup. But given the way the left side of the infield … we are struggling a little bit to...
Baseball announcers have a tendency to get a little goofy during midseason blowouts, but you don’t usually see it happen when teams are playing for a trip to the World Series.
The Tigers built a seven-run early in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series on Wednesday, and although the Red Sox eventually rallied back to make a game of it, FOX commentators Joe Buck and Tim...
The umpiring crew for Game 3 of the AL championship series Tuesday lined up in missing-man formation during a moment of silence for umpire Wally Bell, who died of an apparent heart attack.
Jake Peavy, who will pitch Game 4 for Boston, began his news conference by offering condolences to Bell's family. He called Bell a ''tremendous, tremendous umpire, but a tremendous...
The Red Sox were in trouble. Down 5-0 with two outs in the sixth inning and still without a hit, things looked bleak for the Boston Red Sox.
Detroit Tigers Game 2 starter and probable Cy Young winner, Max Scherzer, was dealing, throwing a no-hitter through 5 2/3 innings and was showing why he is the favorite to win the Cy Young Award striking out 13 Red Sox batters in seven innings...
DETROIT (AP) -- Mike Napoli's majestic homer began a rare early Boston breakthrough, Junichi Tazawa again bested Miguel Cabrera in a crucial spot and the Red Sox moved within one win of reaching the World Series by edging the Detroit Tigers 4-3 on Thursday night.

The Red Sox haven’t been getting many hits against the Tigers in this American League Championship Series, but when they do, they’re of the timely variety.
