Red Sox outfield prospect Bryce Brentz will be forced to miss spring training after suffering an unbelievably strange injury.
John Farrell recently said it looked as if John Lackey had lost 12 to 15 pounds. The Red Sox skipper might be underselling him a bit.
The Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham and ESPN’s Gordon Edes both tweeted photos of Lackey playing catch down in Fort Myers on Thursday, and it’s safe to say that the right-hander really has shed some weight. In fact, Lackey has never looked so thin...

In the latest round of “he said / they said”, “he did it / no I didn’t”, Major League Baseball and the Boston Red Sox concluded an investigation into Curt Schillings comments earlier this week that the Red Sox organization encouraged him to take PED’s in 2008 while recovering from injury. Two sources close to these investigations have told ESPNBoston.com writer Gordon...
The Red Sox have always been very mindful of their international audience, and following the club on social media just became a whole lot easier for those who speak Japanese.

Many of the pitchers and catchers of the Boston Red Sox must be happy that they reported to spring training early. While the pitchers and catchers are enjoying the beautiful weather of Florida many of us Bostonians are spending time shoveling snow to get our cars out.

Curt Schilling, in a Wednesday interview on ESPN Radio, said toward the end of his tenure with the Red Sox he was encouraged to use PEDs by “members of the organization.”
“At the end of my career, in 2008 when I had gotten hurt, there was a conversation that I was involved in in which is was brought to my attention that this is a potential path I might want to pursue...
