Dustin Pedroia will remain in Boston for the foreseeable future, but there's still some uncertainty surrounding one of the team's other stars.
Jacoby Ellsbury, who has turned his year around following a slow start, is slated to become a free agent after this season. And while there's certainly a possibility that Ellsbury will follow in Pedroia's footsteps and sign...
Clay Buchholz received positive news about the health of his shoulder when he visited Dr. James Andrews on Monday. But just how positive depends on who is interpreting the report.
Buchholz indicated on Tuesday that he doesn’t expect to be ready to pitch in a major league game until late August or early September.
“I definitely have a strain in there,” Buchholz said. “The...
There are few greater sounds in the world for Red Sox fans than the first few chords of “Dirty Water” by The Standells. The beginning of that sound, played after every Sox win at Fenway Park, sounds even better when it’s accompanied by deafening applause brought on by a walk-off win.
There’s been plenty of that at Fenway this season, as the Red Sox have nine walk-off wins...
(Jim Rogash/Getty Images)This was the Jon Lester we knew and loved at the start of the 2013 season. Throwing strikes, showing command, lasting into the seventh inning. Lester went 6 1/3 innings, giving up just two runs, striking out eight and—significantly—walking nobody in a 6-2 win by the Carmine Hose. A mixture of good and bad baserunning characterized the Boston offense....
Red Sox righthander Clay Buchholz was in Gulf Breeze, Fla., today to meet with Dr. James Andrews. The verdict? Dr. Andrews agrees with the Red Sox that Buchholz has only inflammation in the bursa sac of his shoulder and can pitch without fear of further injury.
“Clay comes back, I think, with a little bit more peace of mind and he’ll continue on the throwing program that’s...
Dustin Pedroia will get to dirty up many more

During Terry Francona’s time as manager of the Boston Red Sox, it was no secret that he and Dustin Pedroia had built more than just a manager-player relationship. From playing cribbage on flights and before games to the constant...
After watching Tuesday’s 6-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays from the dugout, Jacoby Ellsbury is back in the lineup Wednesday in his typical leadoff spot for the Red Sox.
Ellsbury will be followed in the order by Shane Victorino, who gets the start in right field. Victorino has been in a bit of a slump over the past few weeks — notching just five hits in his last 24 at-bats — but...
Extra rest helped Jon Lester slow down the Tampa Bay surge that nearly knocked Boston out of first place.
After his start was pushed back two days, Lester matched his season high with eight strikeouts and overcame homers by Wil Myers and Evan Longoria as the Red Sox won 6-2 on Tuesday night and moved 1 1/2 games ahead of the Rays in the AL East.
This game was more important than...
In a game that had 1st place on the line in the AL East the Red Sox showed some fight and rallied behind a strong outing by Jon Lester that allowed the team to again go up 1.5 games in the standings. The team quickly forgot about their 2 hit performance from the night before and belted out 12 hits and 6 runs over the Tampa Bay Rays. Here are the...

BOSTON (AP) -- Jon Lester matched his season high with eight strikeouts and overcame homers by Wil Myers and Evan Longoria as the Boston Red Sox remained in first place with a 6-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.
The Red Sox moved 1.5 games ahead of the Rays in the AL East and stayed atop the division for the 58th consecutive day.
The loss ended the Rays' six-game...
As they head into August in a battle for the American League East, pitching is their biggest question mark. They’ve lost two closers to injuries and their best starter, Clay Buchholz, hasn’t pitched since June 8. The situation puts even more pressure on Lester, the man on the mound last night.
Lester has been as inconsistent as New England weather this season, and though he...

He was solid, again.
Unfortunately the opposing pitcher was Matt Moore and just a wee bit better last night to win the game 3 - 0.
It was fun to watch Brandon Workman on his second start this year. Let's be honest, the Red Sox could use him in this form.
He took a no-hitter into the 7th inning on his first start. This time around he allowed...
