Boston Red Sox hurler John Lackey took exception to Tampa Bay Rays Matt Joyce crushing his less than impressive offering out of the ball park. Lackey proceeded to nail Joyce square in the back, who expressed his displeasure to Lackey stating it was “Fried Bologna” numerous times. Joyce then got in a shoving match with catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia who intercepted Joyce down the first base line. No doubt about it folks, this one was obvious.

Rays crowdsourcing inspirational quotes from fans

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. Got an inspirational quote? The Tampa Bay Rays want to hear from you. Deep quotes are nothing new on the Rays clubhouse lineup card they usually come from manager Joe Maddon but the club is doing some crowdsourcing to find fresh thought-provoking material. On Monday, Maddon tweeted that he will select an inspirational quote each day sent to him via Twitter...

Middlebrooks returns to lineup

@nickcafardo - Boston GlobeThere it is, folks. Middlebrooks in, Iglesias out. This doesn't necessarily mean Jose will be sent back down to Pawtucket, he will likely stick around to platoon. Ciriaco will likely be the odd man out. In his 5 game with Pawtucket, Will Middlebrooks went 5-for-17, with 2 homers, and 6 RBI. The Sox made it very clear that Middlebrooks would be inserted...

Red Sox Blow 6-Run Lead; Win Anyway, 10-8

(Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images)The Red Sox plated six runs in the first inning before the Rays' Alex Cobb recorded an out.

Daniel Nava drove in the winning run in the 14th, but it was Jarrod Saltalamacchia who was the offensive hero again—going 4 for 7 with...

Recap: Lester roughed up at the Trop, Sox lose

Anything you have to say about tonight's 8-3 loss against the Rays begins and ends with Jon Lester. Sure, there were near-fireworks when Rays starter Rofaustoberto Hernancarmonadez, still pitching in the 8th inning with a five-run lead and a high pitch count, drilled Dustin Pedroia. All sides behaved themselves, but it was so obvious that Joe Maddon had ordered retailiation...

Rays' Kyle Farnsworth could be DL bound

Tampa Bay Rays right-handed reliever Kyle Farnsworth exited last night's contest against the Boston Red Sox with tightness in his throwing forearm. Manager Joe Maddon told Adam Berry of MLB.com that it's "possible" Farnsworth could land on the DL as a result of the injury. Farnsworth pitched to only one batter during his 11th-inning appearance, striking out...

Dustin Pedroia makes huge plays in BoSox win

On Monday Night against the Tampa Bay Rays, Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia fit the part of Superman with everything but the cape.  After knocking in 2 runs in the first, he then made a then game-saving awkward play on a strange pop-up on the infield as well as a charge play on a Sam Fuld bunt.  Both plays were with 2 outs and the go-ahead or winning run crossing the plate for...

Red Sox, Rays Should Think Twice Before Escalating Animosity in Wake of Monday’s Beaning (Video)

If the Rays want revenge for John Lackey‘s beaning of Matt Joyce on Monday, they’re not likely to get it early on Tuesday night. After all, neither team can afford to lose a starting pitcher in this game, after they both burned up their bullpens in an extra-inning affair the last time out. NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette isn’t ruling out any unruly behavior from the two teams...

Nava lifts Red Sox in 14th inning

Daniel Nava hit a tiebreaking single in the 14th inning and the Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 10-8 on Monday night after squandering two late leads in a testy game that included a bench-clearing scrum.

The Iggy effect

Sean Riley Contributing Writer Jose Iglesias has earned what seems to be a very steady role on the Red Sox 25 man roster. With the return of Will Middlebrooks from injury many expected Iglesias to stay in the bigs with his hot bat and Pedro Ciriaco become the odd man out. This will not be the typical utility infielder most are used to seeing on a big league team. Manager John Farrell...

Pedroia or Cano?

In Major League Baseball there have always been great debates about star players from different teams.  Some that immediately come to mind from the past are Joe DiMaggio or Ted Williams? Carlton Fisk or Thurman Munson? Hank Aaron or Willie Mays? Randy Johnson or Roger Clemens? In this modern era we are in the players are bigger and stronger.  There’s better nutrition, year...
