Darnell McDonald Discusses Scary Encounter With Ronald McDonald, Reveals Music Interests (Video)

Darnell McDonald has shown a willingness to do whatever's been asked of him since joining the Red Sox, but perhaps no task has been more daunting than answering the hard-hitting questions of some lucky kids on Red Sox Small Talk.

Clay Buchholz Hoping to Reward Red Sox Offense With Better Outings Down the Stretch

Clay Buchholz is still trying to work out the kinks. The Red Sox hurler is coming off a shaky outing against the Orioles, where he allowed five runs and six hits through 5 1/3 innings.

Bobby Valentine Facing Tough Decisions When It Comes to Filling Out Red Sox Lineup Card (Video)

The Red Sox lineup has changed a lot this season, due in large part to the number of injuries the team has sustained. Bobby Valentine has needed to get creative at times, most recently when it comes to getting Adrian Gonzalez, Kevin Youkilis and Will Middlebrooks all into Boston's lineup.

Rays rely on Boston native Cobb against BoSox

While winning 10 of 13 has evened the Boston Red Sox's record following a dreadful start, it hasn't been enough to dig them out the AL East cellar.
