PLAYERS: Bryce Brentz
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
Bryce Brentz thrived as a late-season call-up, only it went unnoticed to most baseball fans. That's because Brentz didn't make the leap to the big leagues, as his call-up instead benefited the Triple-A PawSox. Brentz, who could wind up in the bigs before long, made the jump from Double-A Portland to Pawtucket right before the PawSox' championship run. And while it took Brentz a few games to get on track, when he did, his effort was instrumental in helping Pawtucket capture the Governors' Cup as the International League champions for the first time since 1984. Brentz hit .306 with 30...

Pedro Ciriaco Appreciates 'Genuine Interest' From Red Sox, Wants to Keep Capitalizing on His Chances (Video)

Pedro Ciriaco has taken Boston by storm. Since spring training, the utility man has evolved into a triple threat on the diamond, sparking the Red Sox with his offense, defense and speed on the base paths.

MLB Rumors: Must John Henry Choose Between Boston Red Sox And Liverpool FC?

Rumors circulated yesterday that the Boston Red Sox could be quietly on the market right now so that main financier John Henry can focus more on his other professional sports franchise, Liverpool FC.

John Lackey and Redemption

John Lackey. The very name has become a symbol to Red Sox fans, a symbol of the dark pall that has overtaken the once-beloved team. I myself have been guilty of it. When writing about a possible Sox pitching prospect, I referred to the hurler's ERA as "Lackeyesque".; Of course, it wasn't always that way. When Lackey was signed as a free agent by Boston in December...

Alfredo Aceves Needs An Attitude Adjustment

Performance forgives a multitude of sins. If you’re a pitcher that exudes attitude on the mound with fist-pumps, swearing, and a tense brow, it is seen as tenacity—you can Jose Valverde all over the mound, as long as you keep the saves high and runs low. But when performance starts to slip, the actions that were once signs of perseverance are suddenly less cute, often viewed...

Nomar Garciaparra drops incredibly underrated ‘Dumb and Dumber’ joke (Video)

Nomar Garciaparra went there. Things got so out of hand during the Red Sox-Yankees game on Wednesday night that Nomar felt a “Dumb and Dumber” joke was appropriate. After a number of players left the game for various reasons — including Dustin Pedroia whose wife presumably went into labor — the broadcast team began listing off all the reasons big names were either run from...

John Lackey Throws for Second Time, On Track to Pitch in Live Game Soon

BOSTON -- For the second straight week, John Lackey threw a live batting practice in front of an audience -- his teammates.

"[He] felt even better than he did last time, and looked better...
