Jon Lester Bobbles Jose Iglesias Bunt, Manages to Scoop Ball, Flip It to Mike Napoli for Out (GIF)

Iglesias laid down a bunt in the fifth inning, and Sox starting pitcher Jon Lester hustled to glove the ball and ended up bobbling it, then scooping it up with enough time to make a hands-free toss to Mike Napoli at first base for...

Jose Iglesias Drills Former Teammate Dustin Pedroia In The Crotch

A.B. I’m not saying that Iglesias meant to drill Pedroia in the balls but he also definitely didn’t try to let up. I know replay is 20-20 in slowed-down-high-definition but it sure looks like there was zero hesitation on Iglesias’ part. Maybe I’m just bitter because the Tigers have already put up 7 runs on the Sox. Maybe I’m upset that Peavy (who was traded for Iglesias...

Horrible “neighborhood” call at second base; Boston fans show true colors

The Tigers led 1-0 with the bases loaded and one out in the second base.  Jose Iglesias hit a ball to Dustin Pedroia who kicked it around before flipping it to Stephen Drew for the force out at second.  Don’t lecture me on the neighborhood play – I’ve been there, done that.  But this assumption that Drew was remotely close to the bag by second base umpire Dan Iassogna was...

David Ortiz Has Interesting Reaction To Jose Iglesias’ Circus Catch

A.B. Crotch grabbing and ass slapping are as much a part of baseball as chewing tobacco and pine tar. There are many things baseball players do on the field that they would never do outside the park. These little quirks and habits are part of what makes baseball America’s pastime. (Yes, I just basically said that things like spitting and ball-adjusting = ‘Merica). The weird part...
