Taking Stock: Orioles - Red Sox series

After every series, we'll take stock of how each individual and group performance affects their overall value. Lineup Pedro Ciriaco: Pedro did well at the plate in 2 out of 3 games, which is an improvement of his 1 out of 4 against the Rays. Scott Podsednik: Now that's the Scott Podsednik we are used to seeing. He hit well from the top and bottom of the lineup....

Orioles reliever Luis Ayala catches Ryan Flaherty’s home run in his hat (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Typically I’m not impressed by ballplayers catching fly balls and home runs with their hats. These guys are major leaguers for a reason. They should have the hand-eye coordination needed to pull off a catch like that, but I’m giving credit to Orioles reliever Luis Ayala because this home run was absolutely stung by Ryan Flaherty. As you...

Like Red Sox, Ortiz looking ahead to offseason

David Ortiz has been through a lot in nearly a decade with the Red Sox. He's earned two World Series rings and owns the club record for homers in a season. He suffered through a monumental September collapse last year, and has been sidelined with a strained right Achilles as the team faded out of the playoff picture this season. This winter, he'll likely experience something...

Red Sox Wives Participate in Fall Fashion Show to Benefit Red Sox Foundation (Video)

James Loney’s Prime Decline

If the Red Sox have been one of the most disappointing teams in baseball this year, then waiver trade import James Loney has been one of its most disappointing and frustrating players. The 28-year-old first baseman entered his contract year with high hopes. He tallied 2.4 WAR last year in the best season of his career, and while his numbers weren’t all that impressive when placed...

Alan Embree, Mike Timlin Fortunate for Experience with 2004 World Series Red Sox (Video)

Mike Timlin and Alan Embree were crucial cogs in the Red Sox bullpen that helped Boston win a World Series title in 2004. The Red Sox held a ceremony to honor members of the 2004 championship team on Tuesday and both Timlin and Embree were in attendance. Timlin, who came to the Red Sox in 2003 as a free agent, gave Boston six solid years of service in which he struck out a total...

Thome still trying for World Series title

So, did you hear the one about the future Hall of Famer who started the season with a supposed contender, got traded to a shocking upstart, missed almost two months with a neck injury and then returned to play a hero's role in a pennant race? That's Jim Thome. "It's something that I really try not to analyze too much," the Orioles' designated hitter was...

Doubront fans 11 to extend late-season surge

Tired? Who said Felix Doubront was tired? Despite having soared beyond his career-high total for innings in a season, and despite struggling badly for seven starts after the All-Star break, Doubront remained in the Boston Red Sox's rotation and tossed his third consecutive gem Sunday. Making his 28th start, Doubront took a no-hitter into the fifth inning, set a career high...

Tom Gordon gets his 42nd consecutive save

September 24, 1998 Red Sox reliever Tom Gordon records his 42nd consecutive save establishing a major league record. Boston clinches the AL wild card spot behind a pair of homers and four runs scored by Nomar Garciaparra. Author Stephen King would later write a novel titled The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, referring to his outstanding 1998 season with Boston and...

Last night during one of the last off days for the Red Sox, Jon and Farrah Lester hosted a fun filled charity event for his #NVRQT Campaign to raise money and awareness for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF).  The event was held at the House of Blues and started with a VIP hour where you could mingle with the players before the show started.   As expected, Lester...

Your Morning Dump...where Pesky finally got the tribute he deserved.

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The impact that Johnny Pesky made on the Red Sox during his 70-year career as a player, manager, coach and ambassador was evident on Sunday night when Hall of Famer Carlton Fisk walked onto the field at the...

Danny Valencia, Jose Iglesias, Felix Doubront on Tap as Red Sox Turn to Youth to Stave Off Orioles

The Orioles knew they would have a pretty good chance Saturday if they could force their matinee against the Red Sox into extra innings. Boston hasn't been so great past the ninth inning this year, while the O's have now won 16 in a row in extras. The Orioles have built their playoff-hopeful season on pulling out close wins and getting production from their call-ups. On Sunday...

Orioles miss chance to tie for first by losing to Red Sox

BOSTON - Almost any contending team would take a 6-3 September road trip that starts on the West Coast and ends in Boston. But the Orioles lamented that a chance to go 7-2 and go back into a tie for first place slipped through their fingers at Fenway Park Sunday. The 2-1 loss to the out-of-the-money Red Sox cost the Birds a chance to catch the Yankees for the American League East...
