Carl Crawford Shows Off Power, Determination in Anticipation of Return to Red Sox Lineup

BOSTON -- Carl Crawford knows he has been a non factor for the Red Sox so far this season. But the All-Star left fielder is determined to change that reality. Crawford took about 50 swings during batting practice on Tuesday, impressing with his bat speed and solid stroke. The 30-year-old blasted a few pitches off the Green Monster in left field and even sent one into the deepest...

David Ortiz is right, it's a bleep-hole

FVP has stayed away from the Boston Red Sox this season, for the most part. We've known for some time what David Ortiz is talking about, and we'll share a little bit on our end; it's no fun for us, either, Papi. It's pretty much the pre-2004 bleep-hole David talks about. Here's a little secret, Dave; it's about winning.In case you missed it, the Red Sox DH...

Bobby Valentine Plans to Ride 'Hot Hand' At Third Base, Will Bench Kevin Youkilis For Now

BOSTON –– The indecision around third base has continued. In fact, the flip-flopping between Will Middlebrooks and Kevin Youkilis doesn't have any clarity.

Pedroia isn't in the Boston starting lineup on Wednesday night as the Red Sox take on the Marlins at Fenway Park in what's expected to be a sultry June night in Boston. Pedroia,...

Dustin Pedroia Fears He May Have Re-Aggravated His Thumb Injury, Severity is Currently Unknown

BOSTON -- By electing to battle through the pain, Dustin Pedroia gambled. The second baseman took a chance on playing through a torn adductor muscle in his right thumb, hoping he wouldn't re-aggravate the injury –– or worsen it –– after missing six games. That decision may possibly haunt him. During the seventh inning of Tuesday's 7-5 win over the Marlins, Pedroia...

Send Bobby Valentine Your Questions to Be Answered on 'The Bobby Valentine Show,' Tuesday, June 26

Bobby Valentine is now nearly halfway through his first season in Boston, and the results have been mixed. The Red Sox are still hanging around the .500 mark on the season, even amidst a bevy of injuries, and are hoping to improve on their inconsistent play as the likes of Carl Crawford, Jacoby Ellsbury and others return. David Ortiz has been the most consistent and dangerous Red...

Back In The High Life Again

The Red Sox are officially out of the basement! Big Papi is on the best stuff money can buy and just absolutely mashing the ball. Mike Aviles is the best shortstop since Nomar. Felix Doubront is one of the most consistent pitchers in the league. The offense has finally woken up. The Yankees and Orioles are in the beginning stages of what are hopefully terrible losing streaks. Jacoby...

Red Sox News & Notes - 6/22

David Ortiz on Red Sox perceived issues: ‘I run this f***ing clubhouse right here’

It’s happening again. As we near the halfway point in the 2012 season, the Red Sox have picked up right where they left off last September. Injuries have certainly played a part, but at the moment Boston is a mediocre team at best as it hovers around a .500 record. In addition to a poor performance on the field, Buster Olney described the Red Sox clubhouse as a “toxic” environment...
