With one bag remaining, Dustin Pedroia had a chance to move into first place in the Beautyrest Baggo Classic.
Unfortunately for the Sox’ second baseman, he came up with the equivalent of a lipped-out putt, putting the bag on the edge but not through the hole. However, Pedroia’s 13 points were good enough for third place in the overall competition, and he also becomes the leader in the Classic’s new indoor venue. Pedroia even took advantage of the new rules, getting the benefit of a mulligan when he bounced one off the roof.
Check out all the fast and furious baggo action in the video above.

Suffice to say, 2012 was a bizarre season for Dustin Pedroia and the Red Sox.
After an uncharacteristic losing campaign experienced by the scrappy second baseman, Pedroia went home and, according to him, had a relatively normal offseason. Nonetheless, Pedroia says that, despite what happened last year, the expectations for himself and the team are just as high as they ever were,...
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.
That could be an important spot, since starting first baseman Mike
Napoli is not a great defender and the Sox would like someone who could
serve as a late-inning defensive replacement. Also, Napoli'...
In keeping with our current trend here at Red Sox Life we
want to supply you (Red Sox Nation) with a plethora of spring training videos. The
video below is an interesting contrast of styles as Shane Victorino, Jonny
Gomes and David Ortiz take live batting practice on Friday at JetBlue Park.
One of the funniest moments during the 2:09 video was when David Ortiz made an "...
Shane Victorino wasn’t even wearing a Red Sox uniform during the 2012 season, but he says he’s already tired of hearing about last year in Boston.
To be sure, much of the talk surrounding the Sox is how they’ll be able to bounce back after a disappointing campaign, but with the positive attitude of Victorino, things are bound to get better. The Red Sox’ new right fielder...
The Boston Red Sox have had sellouts for nearly 10 years. That could be coming to an end according to team president Larry Lucchino.
Lucchino believes the Red Sox sellout streak at Fenway Park will end sometime in April – maybe as early as the teams second game.
The Red Sox have sold out 793 games dating back to May, 15 2003. While the streak is the longest in Major League Baseball...
The Boston Red Sox are looking for a bounce-back year in 2013. For that to happen, their stars will need to be happy. The team gave David Ortiz a two-year deal this offseason despite his achilles problems, and they gave Mike Napoli a one-year deal despite his hip concerns. Both players have arrived in camp, and both are looking healthy.
According to Alex Speier of WEEI...

It doesn’t get much better than this as the 2013 Red Sox take the field for the first time at JetBlue Park. This means that
spring training has “officially” begun, and we (Red Sox Nation) can start to analyze players,
schedules and possible organizational pitfalls - like any good Red Sox fan would.
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though. The Sox look a bit
Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington took all of 38
seconds to discuss Jacoby Ellsbury and the possibility that the injury-prone
center fielder could be a distraction to the team this season. Cherington gave a
canned and somewhat boring answer when asked about his prized leadoff hitter,
but that’s not to say Cherington isn't thinking long term. With Ellsbury under
One big question mark coming into spring training this
season was the health of John Lackey. Lackey had Tommy John surgery in 2011
during the off-season which landed him on the disabled list the entire 2012
season. Now Lackey is back and ready to kick start his career by providing the
Red Sox with some much needed depth in the starting rotation.
It’s not surprising that...
Considering the Japanese bust pilfered millions of dollars from the Red Sox, bush league Cleveland pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka said he’s thrilled to have an opportunity to shutdown Boston as a member of the Indians. Matsuzaka, who fleeced Boston and milked … Continue reading →
It’s no surprise on the day former Red Sox third/first baseman Kevin Youkilis reported
to Yankees spring training the first words out of his mouth to the media were
about the Red Sox. What may surprise you to know is that those words were spoken
with high regard for his former organization.
Youkilis spent 9 years with the Red Sox organization (2004-2012) and was a vital member...
Daniel Bard pitched a live batting practice session on
Saturday morning, and created quite a stir in Ft. Myers, Florida. After
throwing for about 10 minutes Bard wowed the crowd and left a lasting (more importantly
positive) impression in the mind of Red Sox manager John Farrell.
Bard struggled in 2012 as he stepped into a starting role.
He began the season with a 5-6 record and...
