Although the Red Sox didn't get the result they wanted against the Yankees on Friday, the atmosphere at Fenway Park was still festive. Before the game's first pitch, a number of Red Sox legends took part in what was a memorable ceremony. The Fenway Faithful were treated to appearances by Carl Yastrzemski, Mo Vaughn, Johnny Pesky, Nomar Garciaparra and a bunch more former Sox players. Each legend received a warm ovation, as Red Sox Nation showed once again why it's the best fan base in the world. Check out the awesome pregame ceremony in the video above. Click here to...

Your Morning Dump... Where it's not Valentine's fault

  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 last Red Sox [team stats] manager to receive the kind of booing that was rained upon Bobby Valentine yesterday was Don Zimmer. And that was more than 30 years ago. But here’s the thing: While there...

Marlon Byrd Joins Red Sox, Hopes To Make the Postseason For the First Time in Career

BOSTON –– Through 11 seasons, Marlon Byrd has never reached the postseason. Acquired in a trade for Michael Bowden and a player to be named later on Saturday, the former Cubs outfielder is eagerly awaiting the chance to contribute to the Red Sox and end streak of October days at home. "I went through a building mode in Philly, a rebuilding mode in Washington, a rebuilding...

Red Sox P Bard to stay in starting rotation

Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said Daniel Bard will stay in the starting rotation, but may be available to pitch in relief early in the week. The Red Sox will skip Bard's scheduled start in the rotation after Sunday's game against the New York Yankees was rained out. There was speculation that Bard could be moved to closer after a spectacular meltdown Saturday...

Sox Bullpen Not the Only Boston Meltdown on Saturday

The Red Sox bullpen had an ugly Saturday afternoon by giving up 13 earned runs in 3 innings. That is a meltdown of epic proportions, but it appears the 8th inning sing-along at Fenway perturbed Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe. If they play Sweet Caroline between innings, somebody should get fired. I’m sorta serious. — Pete Abraham (@PeteAbe) April 21, 2012 We just blew a 9...

Yankees-Red Sox game postponed by rain

The Boston Red Sox are moving Daniel Bard to the bullpen - temporarily, at least. With rain washing out Bard's scheduled start against the New York Yankees on Sunday night, manager Bobby Valentine said Bard will skip his turn in the rotation and be available in relief. But when the Red Sox need a fifth starter, it will be Bard. ''As the plan is now, he's our fifth...

It's not Bobby Valentine's fault

As much as I'd like to lay the blame for the 4-10 Boston Red Sox start on Bobby Valentine, it's not is mess. He's had exactly 14 games to reverse the dysfunction of the September collapse, hardly enough for a litmus test. Look at the mess he's inherited:Josh Bard and the bullpen dilemma: It wasn't Valentine that moved Bard to the starting rotation. That's...

Dickey, Wakefield shine in "Knuckleball!"

Last night, Squawker Lisa and I went to the Tribeca Film Festival for the premiere of the baseball documentary "Knuckleball!" The movie celebrates the tiny fraternity of MLB knuckleballers, with the main focus on the only two knuckleballers active in 2011 - the Mets' R.A. Dickey and the Red Sox' Tim Wakefield (who retired after the season).There probably wouldn...

Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees Preview

So good, so good, so good. Or is it? The Boston Red Sox ownership wants you to feel that way, masking the Red Sox miserable 4-8 start behind the 100th year ceremony of Fenway Park. Today, they will make their best efforts to make you think about the past, and not the present. But then Terry Francona will step [...]

New Era 1912 Authentic Hats are the Must Haves of Summer Apparel

Only $34.99 for this vintage 1912 looking Boston Red Sox hat? You're god damn right I'll tip the cash register guy an extra $2 just for having it in stock by the time I get there. [Follow me @TravisHouser]

Red Sox Acquire Marlon Byrd from the Cubs

In what can be seen as a panic move by the Red Sox to bolster their defense with the injury to Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford still on the DL, the team has officially announced that they have acquired outfielder Marlon Byrd from old GM Theo Epstein’s Chicago Cubs. Here is the official announcement posted [...]

Bobby V Not the Only Manager that Needs a Good Weekend

It’s Bobby Valentine vs. Joe Girardi this weekend. We all know that Valentine needs a big weekend, but the manager opposite of him might need to come away with a series victory, as well. Valentine’s controversial comments about Kevin Youkilis‘ commitment rankled Red Sox Nation- specifically Dustin Pedroia- but the struggles on the field shouldn’t be a surprise. Coming back...
