Your Morning Dump...where the real Adrian Gonzalez steps up.

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. It started modestly with a few 1-for-4 games that featured a single a night in late June. But the drumbeat soon picked up, a 2-for-5, a 2-for-3, a 2-for-4, a 2-for-5. Game after game, the hits have been coming...

Your Morning Dump...where Gonzalez finds his power

  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. Homerless in 63 at-bats dating back to June 24, Gonzalez came to the plate in the bottom of the eighth inning of last night’s game against the Chicago White Sox with two runners on and the score tied. ...

Adrian Gonzalez Showing Signs of 'Real' Adrian Gonzalez With Budding Confidence, Power Stroke

Will the real Adrian Gonzalez please stand up? If that question were asked even three weeks ago, the presence of an imposing 6-foot-2 first baseman on the infield at Fenway Park probably wouldn't have been confirmation enough. But 23 games and 90 at bats later, the real Adrian Gonzalez has finally resurfaced in the Red Sox clubhouse. He may not have been around to chat with the...

A Night of Returns at Fenway

Gonzalez could return to his power-hitting ways with more swings like this one last night. Third baseman Kevin Youkilis’ return to Fenway Park since being traded to the Chicago White Sox brought many cheers from fans, including a 40-second standing ovation prior to this first at-bat. Monday night’s contest against Chicago also marked a couple of other returns for the Boston...

Ross & Gonzalez haze rookie Pedro Hernandez, Red Sox win 12-1.

              Even with the most consistent hitter making a trip to the DL, the offense is doing more than enough to pick up the slack. Tonight it was Cody Ross's best game as a member of the Sox: going 3-for-5 with two three-run home runs that led the way to an easy 10-1 victory. Ross hit both homers off of Pedro Hernandez, who made his major league debut. He...

Ibanez grand slam gives Yankees a victory

NEW YORK -- Toronto Blue Jays reliever Jason Frasor had just frozen Nick Swisher on a called third strike with the bases loaded to record the second out of the eighth inning and quiet the Yankee Stadium crowd. Frasor appeared to be in position to escape the jam with the score still tied, but, as opponents have said all season, there is little relief in the New York Yankees lineup...

Adrian Gonzalez, Cody Ross Hitting Stride at Right Time As Red Sox Open Big Series With Toronto

Editor's note: The temperature gauge is a Bill James-created statistic that measures how hot or cold hitters are. We will spotlight Red Sox and opposing team temperatures on game days. They're all pretty big series at this point for the Red Sox, but with this weekend's series with the Blue Jays has a lot of implications for a July series. That's why it's a good...

Cody Ross, Adrian Gonzalez Show Off 'Bash Brothers' Style With Middle-of-the-Order Explosion (Video)

Cody Ross doesn't always bat third. Maybe he should. The Red Sox outfielder went yard twice on Wednesday night, driving in six runs and sparking the Sox to a laugher over the White Sox. He got some pretty great help, too, from Adrian Gonzalez, who added a home run of his own. All in all, the two combined to drive in all 10 of the Red Sox runs from the No. 3 and No. 4 spots in...

Kernan Makes The Case For Victorino

From Kevin Kernan:The easy route would be to do nothing and hope the old guys, Raul Ibanez and Andruw Jones, continue to produce loud hits for the Yankees. The Yankees, though, need to make a deal for an outfielder. Send a limo down the New Jersey Turnpike to pick up speedy Shane Victorino from the Phillies. Victorino would put the Yankees that much closer to victory. The Athletics...

Red Sox 5, White Sox 1

BOSTON -- Adrian Gonzalez hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the eighth to break a 1-1 tie as the Boston Red Sox spoiled the return of fan favorite Kevin Youkilis with a 5-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Monday night. Youkilis was playing his first game against the Red Sox since they traded him to Chicago on June 24. Boston fans cheered him as if he was still a member...

Bad News For Brett

From David Waldstein:Any slim hope the Yankees may have had that Brett Gardner would return from an elbow injury this season was almost certainly wiped out Thursday, when it was determined that he would have surgery. The Yankees announced that Gardner would have an arthroscopic procedure next week to remove inflamed tissue from his elbow. “It will most likely conclude his season...

Red Sox Injury Report

The injury woes for the 2012 Red Sox seemingly have been relentless. At this point in the season, 21 Red Sox players have made trips to the disabled list. Luckily, David Ortiz, has not been one of them. Ortiz, who has been one of the very few, perhaps the only, constant performers this season, has played in 89 of the team’s 90 games. That is assuredly going to change. As Adrian...

Red Sox 10, White Sox 1

BOSTON -- The Red Sox gave left-hander Pedro Hernandez a rude welcome to the major leagues Wednesday night. Cody Ross hit a pair of three-run homers, Adrian Gonzalez added a solo shot and an RBI single and Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits in Boston's 10-1 rout of the White Sox. Hernandez, who lasted four-plus innings, gave up eight runs in his big league debut Gonzalez added...
