Boston Red Sox
On the hottest day of the season so far at Fenway Park, the ball seemed to be flying out of the park and that added to the Red Sox offense hitting, hitting and hitting their way to a win over the struggling Marlins. The Sox scored 15 runs, Felix Doubront got his 8th win of the season and the Sox went 2 games over 500. Oh and every other team in the AL East lost last night too.
Felix Doubront took the mound for the Red Sox and while it wasn't his best outing, he did pretty well throughout the evening. Because the Red Sox kept scoring run after run after run, Doubront often had very long waits in between innings. Mind you, I doubt he was complaining. Doubront gave up a run in the 1st inning when Reyes was on 3rd and Stanton ground into a double play. Doubront gave up a second run in the 2nd when Sanchez hit into a sac grounder to score Ruggiano. Sox 0-2. That is the last time the Sox would be trailing in this game. Doubront gave up 2 more runs in the 4th inning with a ...
BEST OF MAXIM
BOSTON -- Carl Crawford knows he has been a non factor for the Red Sox so far this season. But the All-Star left fielder is determined to change that reality. Crawford took about 50 swings during batting practice on Tuesday, impressing with his bat speed and solid stroke. The 30-year-old blasted a few pitches off the Green Monster in left field and even sent one into the deepest...
FVP has stayed away from the Boston Red Sox this season, for the most part. We've known for some time what David Ortiz is talking about, and we'll share a little bit on our end; it's no fun for us, either, Papi. It's pretty much the pre-2004 bleep-hole David talks about. Here's a little secret, Dave; it's about winning.In case you missed it, the Red Sox DH...
8 a.m. ET: The Red Sox (34-33) have returned to their winning ways above .500. They'll look to maintain that momentum when Felix Doubront takes the mound against the Marlins (33-34) just one week after beating them. Last time around, Doubront dazzled, giving up two runs over seven innings. This time, Doubront owns a 7-3 record with a 4.17 ERA entering the game. The lefty will...
The Red Sox are officially out of the basement! Big Papi is on the best stuff money can buy and just absolutely mashing the ball. Mike Aviles is the best shortstop since Nomar. Felix Doubront is one of the most consistent pitchers in the league. The offense has finally woken up. The Yankees and Orioles are in the beginning stages of what are hopefully terrible losing streaks. Jacoby...
Things were problematic enough for the Boston Red Sox with injuries this season, and now they may have to worry about Dustin Pedroia again. The second baseman re-injured his right thumb Tuesday for the second time in three weeks and was taken out of the game after his at-bat in the seventh inning. Pedroia was not available to talk with the media after Boston's 7-5 win over...
BOSTON – Last week in Miami, the Marlins beat the Red Sox in the first of six inter-league games to be played between the teams in 11 days. Wednesday night in Boston, the Sox beat Miami for the fourth straight time since, hammering the slumping Marlins 15-5. David Ortiz, hitting his third home run in as many games (No. 19 on the season), drilled a grand slam during a six-run...
BOSTON –– The indecision around third base has continued. In fact, the flip-flopping between Will Middlebrooks and Kevin Youkilis doesn't have any clarity. For the time being, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine expressed his intention to ride the "hot hand" at third base. It starts on Friday with Middlebrooks, who will make his second straight start in the infield...
Dustin Pedroia came out of Tuesday night's game with the Marlins after reaggravating his thumb injury. It appears that for one night at least, the Red Sox second baseman will rest that thumb. Pedroia isn't in the Boston starting lineup on Wednesday night as the Red Sox take on the Marlins at Fenway Park in what's expected to be a sultry June night in Boston. Pedroia,...
BOSTON -- By electing to battle through the pain, Dustin Pedroia gambled. The second baseman took a chance on playing through a torn adductor muscle in his right thumb, hoping he wouldn't re-aggravate the injury –– or worsen it –– after missing six games. That decision may possibly haunt him. During the seventh inning of Tuesday's 7-5 win over the Marlins, Pedroia...
Bobby Valentine is now nearly halfway through his first season in Boston, and the results have been mixed. The Red Sox are still hanging around the .500 mark on the season, even amidst a bevy of injuries, and are hoping to improve on their inconsistent play as the likes of Carl Crawford, Jacoby Ellsbury and others return. David Ortiz has been the most consistent and dangerous Red...
Don't look now folks but this "toxic" Boston Red Sox team is playing some good baseball right now.
The Red Sox rallied last night behind the "youth" of the organization for a 6-5 win over the Miami Marlins. The win gave the local nine a sweep of the three-game set with the Marlins and it was also their fifth straight win.
They now hold a one-game lead...

It’s happening again. As we near the halfway point in the 2012 season, the Red Sox have picked up right where they left off last September. Injuries have certainly played a part, but at the moment Boston is a mediocre team at best as it hovers around a .500 record. In addition to a poor performance on the field, Buster Olney described the Red Sox clubhouse as a “toxic” environment...
Ryan Kalish has been a solid contributor for the Red Sox in his return to the lineup over the past four games. And the 24-year-old feels confident in how his transition is progressing. His presence in the outfield, along with his ability at the plate have seemed to mesh quite nicely with the big league club so far. Kalish was hitting .250 and knocked in an RBI heading into Thursday...
