Boston Red Sox left fielder Daniel Nava stopped in his tracks after completely losing a home run ball by Texas Rangers leadoff batter Ian Kinsler during Saturday's MLB game in Arlington.
Nava was so fooled that he was still looking for the ball after it had already landed in the stands.

BEST OF MAXIM
Boston Red Sox reliever Andrew Bailey has been placed on the disabled list after undergoing an MRI on his right biceps injury, which confirmed that Bailey was suffering from tendinitis. The news was tweeted by Boston Herald reporter Scott Lauber on Monday afternoon:
MRI revealed inflammation in biceps for Andrew Bailey, who goes on DL. Hoping shut down from throwing will be only...
Clay Buchholz has had the best 6 game start of any Red Sox pitcher since 1991 and Rodger Clemens start that year. If you think about Buchholz starting the year 6-0 in 6 starts, it is quite an accomplishment. Pedro Martinez never did this, nor did Curt Shilling, Derek Lowe, or Tim Wakefield. Buchholz was named the American Leagues pitcher of the month and will be given a trophy, a...
Andrew Bailey has stated all along that staying healthy for the entire season is his top priority. He’s now dealing with biceps soreness, though, and the reliever isn’t happy about the current situation.
Bailey’s injury was revealed following the Red Sox’ 3-1 win over the Blue Jays on Thursday. Joel Hanrahan pitched the ninth inning of that contest to earn the save, which...
Ho hum. Another week, another magnificent performance from Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz that earned him Amica Pitcher of the Week honors.
This week’s efforts might have garnered some controversy after Blue Jays analysts — and former MLB pitchers — Jack Morris and Dick Hayhurst accused Buchholz of using a spitball or scuffball, but it was also one of his best of the season...
Felix Doubront allowed six runs against the Rangers, and things could have been a lot worse. The lefty allowed 12 hits in his 3 2/3 innings of work on Friday night, but escaped trouble in the early innings before running into it during a big fourth inning for Texas.
After the game, he discussed a recent dip in his velocity, but didn’t seem all that concerned about it. He brushed...
Thursday afternoon at Double-A Portland Daniel Bard was brought in for the 9th inning to close out a 7-3 lead.
What happened next was not what the Red Sox want to see. What happened next is why Daniel Bard is down in Double-A ball.
He walked the first batter.
The runner advanced to second on a wild pitch before he struck out the hitter.
He threw another wild pitch and ended...
Game 30: Red Sox fall 5-1
Last night's lop-sided loss to texas just didn't feel right, so the Red Sox took to the field again on Saturday night to play the Rangers in the second game of the series. While the Red Sox hit the ball hard, the balls just didn't fall their way, and Texas escaped with their second win in as many nights. Here are the four at bats that changed...
SMOKING: David Ortiz looks to extend his 25-game hit streak tonight at Fenway Park.
Satchel Paige famously said: “Don’t look back.
Something might be gaining on you.”
For David Ortiz, that something is history.
Tonight, when the Sox return from a being swept out of the
Lone Star State and host the Minnesota Twins...
After dominating the past few games, winning seven out of eight games, Friday night almost seemed inevitable. After all,
Every one of the Rangers starters reached base at least once, and they took over the game when they scored five runs in the fourth inning.
Here are the Four Bases:
First Base: Who cares if he is young. Felix Doubront has turned into a ticking time bomb. He has...

The program supports clinical care, education, and research to help Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and families deal with post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury from war.
The event also honored...

Greetings FanGraphs readers, I am Drew Sheppard, and if you recognize my name it is probably from the Yu Darvish pitch selection GIF that made the rounds last week. Over the coming months, it is my goal to use similar techniques to put a visual spin on some of the information FanGraphs has always provided, including but not limited to similar pitcher breakdowns. Today I will be...
John Lackey has faced the Rangers quite a bit over the course of his 12-year career, which is fitting when you consider the right-hander hails from the Lone Star State. The homecomings haven’t been much cause for celebration, however, judging by Lackey’s 6.68 ERA at the Ballpark in Arlington.
The Red Sox’ right-hander will look to improve on that mark Saturday night in his...
After a sizzling month of April when the Boston Red Sox came within a game of the franchise’s best first month of the season, the Sox picked up a couple of games in Toronto.
Then it was onto Texas.
The ballpark at Arlington was not as friendly to the BoSox as had been the parks they played in during the month of April. This weekend, Boston lost all three contests to the AL West...

Prior to 2004, Red Sox fans often traded in a devalued, hindsight-based currency of What-Ifs:
— What if Frazee hadn’t hocked Ruth to the Yankees?
— What if Pesky had been a split-second earlier on the relay throw as Slaughter made his Mad Dash?
— What if Conigliaro had been able to get out of the...
