PLAYERS: Dustin Pedroia
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
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, and he’s happy to be back on a diamond and readying for the new season. Check out what Pedroia had to say about working with 11 different shortstops in recent years in the video above.

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.

Jon Lester reflects on 2012 and looks forward to 2013

Red Sox starting pitcher Jon Lester sat down with the media on Wednesday to discuss the failures of 2012 and his desires for 2013. I’ve got to hand it to the Red Sox ace; he’s been rational, thoughtful and downright blunt.

The 2013 Red Sox take the field for the first time

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 fragile (at...

Doug Flutie Learns Wiles of Knuckleball With Tim Wakefield in First Episode of ‘The Knuckler’ (Video)

For those waiting to see Doug Flutie get his arm back in the game, the time has come — although they’ll have to be satisfied with watching the quarterback sling a knuckleball.

Jon Lester Is No Mike Trout, But He’s Not Bad at Catching Fish, Either (Photo)

Jon Lester and his fellow Red Sox pitchers are working their way back to Opening Day form, but even spring training leaves them time for other activities. On Wednesday, Lester apparently spent that free time working on his fishing, and he had quite a successful outing. Now, the catch is not as big as the 500-pounder the Angels’ Mike Trout reeled in, but Lester’s catch is still...

The Rise of the John Lackey Clause

When the Red Sox signed John Lackey as a free agent in December of 2009, they had some concern about an existing elbow injury, but not enough concern to walk away from the deal entirely. So, they (or maybe his agent) came up with a pretty creative solution, adding a league minimum club option to the end of the deal if Lackey missed significant time due to an elbow issue. Sure enough...

John Farrell on John Lackey's status in spring training

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...
