Oft-injured Aaron Cook will be at Fenway by Saturday. Alfredo Aceves is the team’s closer and Marlon Byrd is the starting centerfielder. This is Plan B for the Red Sox. When 2011 ended, many people believed that the Red Sox had a very talented team that had a terrible run of misfortune causing them to miss the playoffs. Certainly, they couldn’t start as poorly as they did in...
Right-hander Aaron Cook has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Boston Red Sox, the team announced Sunday. Cook, who was recently called up from Triple-A Pawtucket, sustained a left knee laceration. He was replaced on the roster by left-hander Aaron Miller, who was activated from the 15-day DL. Cook was called up last week after a clause in his minor-league contract...
Welcome news for Red Sox fans to say the least, at least the ones who don’t mind his incessant nibbling. Today Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched 4.2 scoreless innings for the AAA PawSox while allowing 2 hits and walking 3 batters. He struck out 4 batters as well. It was his third rehab start, and he is scheduled to make 2 more for the PawSox.
Yet again he showed problems with nibbling...
Editor's note: NESN.com is going to tell the story of the 2012 Red Sox in Bobby Valentine's words. Each game day, we will select a Valentine quote that sums up the day for the Red Sox. When Darnell McDonald came in to pitch the 17th inning for the Red Sox on Sunday, he was truly a final option. But the Red Sox aren't play 17-inning games every day, and they have so much...
Boston Red Sox outfielder Cody Ross lost the grip on his bat and sent it flying into the stands at Fenway Park during the fifth inning of Friday night's game against the Baltimore Orioles.
Your browser does not support iframes.
Ross swung and missed a pitch from Orioles pitcher Wei-Yin Chen. The bat flew pretty far from home plate (about 100 feet, give or take), but...
Daisuke Matsuzaka tossed 4 2-3 scoreless innings Monday night for Triple-A Pawtucket in the third of his scheduled five rehab starts.
Matsuzaka, whose start was pushed back three days because of a neck injury, is working his way back to the Boston Red Sox after undergoing Tommy John surgery on June 10.
The right-hander threw 49 of his 87 pitches for strikes, allowing two hits,...
BOSTON -- There is reason to be concerned with Clay Buchholz. Lost in the shuffle of Sunday's 9-6 loss in 17 innings was the looming story that Buchholz wasn't hitting his spots. Buchholz yielded two early blasts to J.J. Hardy, and then the issues came to a head in the fourth inning, when Buchholz allowed Robert Andino -- yes, that Andino -- to crush a three-run homer. In...
Before there was Ted Williams or Jim Rice, there was Duffy Lewis. Lewis patrolled left field in a Red Sox uniform for eight seasons, forming one of the best outfields in baseball history with Tris Speaker and Harry Hooper. Lewis was known mostly for his defense and his ability to play the left-field wall with expertise, although he did drive in 109 runs in 1912. Speaker and Hooper...
Let's forget just for a moment that the Boston Red Sox were swept by the Baltimore Orioles at HOME over the weekend just for a few moments. Why's that?
It's because how many times can you go to a MLB game and see two position players battling it out on the mound for their respective teams.
Well that's exactly what happened yesterday afternoon/evening at Fenway...
1975. Red Sox-Reds. Game 6. A Boston hitter steps to the plate and drills a home run to save Boston. But wait -- it wasn't Carlton Fisk. Bernie Carbo was the player who hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning to keep the Red Sox in the game until Fisk could appear for his heroics later. Carbo remembers that fateful day and where that home run has taken him since for NESN Daily.
It didn't take long for Mike Aviles to resume his leadoff duties, or for Will Middlebrooks to find his way back into the Red Sox lineup. Aviles will be the first Boston batter to step up to the plate on Sunday, leading things off against Tommy Hunter and the Orioles. Middlebrooks, meanwhile, returns to the lineup after being scratched on Saturday due to some hamstring tightness...
The wild diatribes keep coming from former Boston Red Sox pitcher Dennis ‘Oil Can’ Boyd. The man who won 43 games in his first 3 seasons with the Sox has already admitted to smoking pot every game since Little League, also copped to smoking crack in 1986, the same year the Red Sox reached the [...]
Sunday's game against the Baltimore Orioles offered plenty that fans don't usually get to see on a given afternoon. The obvious one was that the game went 17 innings and about six hours. But it never would have gotten there if not for Will Middlebrooks, who returned to the lineup and hit a bomb of a grand slam well over the Green Monster to get the Red Sox back in it. Middlebrooks...
Mike Aviles' career began with the Kansas City Royals, but the shortstop is a total Boston Red Sox now. Aviles took time before Monday's game to reflect on his time in Kansas City, where he played until July 2011, when he was traded to Boston. See what Aviles told Jenny Dell on Red Sox GameDay LIVE presented by UNO.
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.
Asked if he was surprised that the team had seemingly failed to sustain the momentum accumulated during the roadtrip, Valentine objected.
"I don’t believe in that nonsense," he said. "...
