Sox and Dawgs:
Here's the release from the Boston Red Sox announcing the 2012 Futures at Fenway event:
The Boston Red Sox today announced details for the seventh annual Futures at Fenway presented by Xfinity, a minor league doubleheader at Fenway Park, now in its seventh year, taking place on Saturday, August 18. Similar to previous events, family-friendly ticket and concession prices along with kid-friendly activities will highlight the day of minor league fun at “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark.”
After a one year absence from the event, Boston’s Single-A affiliate, the Lowell Spinners, will make their fifth overall appearance at Futures at Fenway, taking on the Hudson Valley Renegades, the Single-A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, at 1:05pm. Game two will feature the Pawtucket Red Sox, also making their fifth Futures at Fenway appearance, as they face off against the Buffalo Bisons, the Triple-A affiliate of the New York Mets.
Many of the best and most promising prospects in the...

You can’t just forget the worst collapse in baseball history. Memory doesn’t work that way.
The adage holds that those who do not learn from their past are doomed to repeat it, and if the Boston Red Sox can’t avoid the pitfalls that ruined their 2011 then another disappointment could be in store. But at the same time, dwelling on the negative is of little use; this club...
JUPITER, Fla. –– Jose Iglesias scurried all around the infield. In the second inning, the Red Sox shortstop started by making a sliding stop on David Freese’s grounder and firing a bullet to first base for the out. On the ensuing at-bat, Cardinals designated hitter Matt Adams hit a sharp grounder to second base. As the ball rolled, Iglesias bolted in front of Dustin Pedroia...
Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine isn't tipping his hand when it comes to naming the team's Opening Day starter, and he isn't in any hurry to do so either. "I am prepared to [name it]," Valentine said, "but I'm not going to. I want to be last. Can I be the last one to name the Opening Day starter? I can do that, right?" Of course you can, coach....

We are all eager for baseball to start. So when stuff like this pops up in the news, the eagerness is brought out like a sore thumb. The Boston Herald has reported that David Ortiz, Boston Red Sox slugger, took a DNA test and is not the father of a 17 year-old teenager from the Dominican Republic.
According to a report in the Dominican newspaper Hoy by veteran baseball reporter...
It was just a few short years ago that the names Buchholz and Bowden evoked a smile across the face of fans in Red Sox Nation. Not for what they were doing on the field, but for the potential the two promised coming out of a nationally respected farm system in Pawtucket. Buchholz burst onto [...]
Josh Beckett increased his repertoire of pitches for his second spring training start, and the result was similar to his first outing.
Beckett gave up two hits in three scoreless innings but the Boston Red Sox lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 9-3 on Thursday. He has allowed three hits and no runs in five innings this spring.
''I threw everything I wanted to throw,'&...
Looks like Beckett and Saltalamacchia are going to get along just fine after all.
Joshy threw three scoreless innings against the Cardinals today, and he only needed 30 pitches to get those 9 outs. While he didn't strike anyone out, he didn't walk anyone either. Pair that with his last outing (2 IP, 1 hit, 2 BB), and I don't see any reason to question their chemistry...
Andrew McCutchen had two RBI doubles and also singled in three at-bats to help the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Boston Red Sox 7-4 in exhibition play Friday night.
McCutchen just missed two homers, doubling off the Green Monster replica in the third and fifth innings.
Right-hander Clay Buchholz started for the Red Sox. He went three innings, allowing two runs on three hits, with...
A.B. My judgement skills are flawed. I can’t make a decision here. A top 10 NHL hockey jerseys list, no problem. But ordering Red Sox wives for some reason leaves me with a serious case of writers block.
I think it’s because I can’t separate them from their husbands or the scenarios. Like being introduced by Donald Trump makes me want to drop Lindsay Buchholz to #5. But she...
Jonathan Papelbon is losing fans from the Boston area by the minute. But at the same time, the right-hander is quickly gaining a stamp of approval throughout Philadelphia. Much of that stems from Papelbon's recent comments comparing the two fan bases. "The difference between Boston and Philadelphia, the Boston fans are a little bit more hysterical when it comes to the game...
So far, Mr. Cody Ross is making a hell of an impression. He's been hitting great, and yesterday he hit a weak ball that was misplayed, so he turned an easy out into being safe at first. Hustle -- nice to see.This guy is 31, and he dipped a bit last year after several really good years. Let's hope his great spring continues into the season.Meanwhile Vicente Padilla, who at...
10:30 a.m.:The Boston Red Sox look to rebound from their 9-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday when they take on the Pittsburgh Pirates tonight at 7:05 at JetBlue Park. Clay Buchholz takes the mound for his second spring training start of the year. Buchholz was solid in his first outing, pitching two scoreless innings giving up no hits and two walks to go along with two...
