Much was made in the wake of the Red Sox' historic collapse about leadership within the clubhouse and in the organization. A month later, the Sox have a drastic new look, with more changes to come. First baseman Adrian Gonzalez insists that, while the collapse was obviously not what anyone had in mind, the issues that sprung up following the season were overblown. He spoke about it on NESN Daily on Tuesday. "The first thing is I felt that we all had each other's backs, and I think we still do. That's not something that was ever questioned. I think...

Video: Adrian Gonzalez Talks About Collapse On NESN Daily

Fresh off of winning his first career Silver Slugger Award, Boston Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez called into the NESN Daily set to talk about the end of the season among other things. I have to wonder when the Boston media is going to let this go. After all, free agency starts at 12:01 on Thursday morning.

Dustin Pedroia, Adrian Gonzalez and Jacoby Ellsbury were all honored with the annual award for excellence in fielding. For Gonzalez, it his third Gold Glove after winning two in San Diego.

Red Sox General Manager Ben Cherington Must Keep Hot Stove Burning This Winter

It's hard to believe the stove can get any hotter for the Red Sox than it did last offseason, when they made blockbuster deals to bring in Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez. This offseason, the Red Sox' troubles can't necessarily be fixed by focusing on statistics alone. In addition to finding pitching help, new general manager Ben Cherington must find players who will...

Jacoby Ellsbury, David Ortiz, Adrian Gonzalez All Win American League Silver Slugger Awards

The postseason individual awards continue to come in for the Red Sox, as three members of baseball's best offense were honored Wednesday. Adrian Gonzalez, Jacoby Ellsbury and David Ortiz were all awarded with American League Silver Slugger awards as the top offensive players at their respective positions. It is the fifth time that Ortiz has won the honor as a designated hitter...

Tale of the MVP Tape

Jacoby Ellsbury is routinely mentioned as an MVP candidate in the AL, but Adrian Gonzalez is not. I never questioned this; AG dropped off (a lot, it seemed) and never really felt like the MVP after the All-Star break. But to me Jacoby never felt like MVP either.So I looked at the numbers. Baseball Reference knows all. Jacoby Ellsbury Adrian Gonzalez ...

Ells, Gonzo and Papi Slug Their Way To Silver

Three Sox Win Meaningless Awards

Take it for what its worth. Adrian Gonzalez, Dustin Pedroia and Jacoby Ellsbury won AL Gold Gloves, as the awards were announced last night.In my opinion, they are the most overrated awards in sports. But it sounds like all three actually deserved to win them this year.Congratulations to them anyway.

More hardware in the clubhouse

Ells, Pedey and Gonzo Are Golden!

The Gold Gloves were announced last night.  Three Sox players walked away with the prize.  Dustin Pedroia won for second base, Adrian Gonzalez won for first base and Jacoby Ellsbury won for centerfield.  Kevin Youkilis was also nominated at third base, but given that he missed a bunch of time due to injury and didn't have his best year defensively, it was no surprise he did...

Awards Talk

There’s gonna be more in the coming days, but JV was named the Players Choice Player of the Year for 2011.  Besides having the most confusing name, this award is the top award bestowed by an all player vote, and produced for the MLB Network during a slow content period. It’s not the Cy Young or MVP, but it is setting a nice precedent. In case you missed it, Alex Avila won his...

Their Gloves Smell Like Roses
