At the All Star Break, the Red Sox are sitting pretty in 1st place in the AL East. So how are they doing it? Depth, manager John Farrell told ESPN Boston. According to ESPN Boston, the team has used a grand total of 41 players, 19 position players and 22 pitchers. And they will use their 23rd pitcher after the break, as they have newly called up pitcher Drake Britton ready to start against the Yankees after the break. John Farrell points to the left side of the infield as an example of the depth. The depth of the team has probably been most evident there, with Will Middlebrooks struggling and Stephen Drew injured. According to ESPN Boston, the Red Sox have gone through six 3rd baseman and 3 shortstops. Jose Iglesias has more than earned his place with his stellar play at both 3rd and short. Brandon Synder and Brock Holt have both been revelations since being called up. John Farrell cited the lack of errors (only 2 ...

NICE COWBOY HAT, TOO
Country star Jason Aldean played two sold out shows at Fenway Park this weekend. Red Sox CEO Larry Lucchino was at at least one of those shows, as proven by this picture he took with Aldean prior to Friday night’s show. Yup, that’s Lucchino wearing a cowboy hat, suave button-down shirt, and hoop earrings. HOOP EARRINGS! I don’t know if the earring are real or not but oh my...
Ranaudo (L) & Cecchini (R)Reports are surfacing that Theo Epstein will demand both Anthony Ranaudo and Garin Cecchini in a trade for Matt Garza.

The Red Sox have looked good all season. They have the best record in the American League East (and the American League) as well as the most wins in all of Major League Baseball at the All-Star break. Perhaps it’s time to stop treading carefully when using “Red Sox” and “World Series” in the same sentence and just go for it.
Dustin Pedroia is.
Pedroia voiced the MLB party...
Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia seemingly looks for motivation wherever he can find it. After the 5-foot-8 infielder was deemed to small to play as he grew up, Pedroia is still feeding from that gigantic chip on his shoulder even as racks up accolades. He may now have a little added fire when the Sox play the Tigers now.
Pedroia was the victim of a classic high-five fake-out...
Red Sox pitcher Alfredo Aceves‘ time with the club has been interesting to say the least, and the latest occurrence of that ongoing saga took place this weekend as the team’s unofficial first half came to an end.

During the pre All-Star Game introductions at Citi Field, Miguel Cabrera came out of the dugout after being introduced giving high-five’s to his American League teammates. However when the 6’4″ Cabrera came to the 5’8″ Pedroia the reining...
If the Major League Baseball playoffs started today, the Red Sox would have home-field advantage throughout the American League postseason. As for the World Series? Which league gets the potential advantage in the Fall Classic will be determined Tuesday night at the Mets’ Citi Field. The National League has won three-straight All-Star Games and opened as the -130 favorite.
Aside from trolling Dustin Pedroia during the All-Star Game intros, Miguel Cabrera was having some fun on third as he partook in a little dance before Toronto’s Jose Bautista drove him home.
Let’s also not forget Cabrera launching his bat into the crowd…
