Red Sox Small Talk kicked off with Kevin Youkilis fielding questions from a number of young students. There's still plenty more Red Sox Small Talk segments to come, though. Youkilis was the first gues on the new segment, which will be airing throughout the season on Sundays during NESN's Red Sox pregame coverage. The Boston third baseman was asked questions that ranged from...
BOSTON -- A trip to Fenway was the right remedy for Cody Ross. For the second straight day, the 31-year-old drilled a home run over the Green Monster and keyed the Red Sox' 6-4 victory over the Rays. Before the trip to Boston, the outfielder had cooled off from his remarkable spring -- where he unloaded six long balls -- and had posted a .211 average by only mustering four hits...
One of the downsides of the Jacoby Ellsbury (other than the obvious losing-an-MVP-caliber-center-fielder piece of it) was that the Sox had to designate two young players for assignment. One was Michael Bowden, a once promising pitcher who flamed out as a below-average reliever in Boston. The other was Luis Exposito, a catcher some of us hoped would take the reigns from Jason Varitek...
Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine questioned the commitment of third baseman Kevin Youkilis during a television interview on Sunday.
"I don't think he's as physically or emotionally into the game as he has been in the past for some reason," Valentine told WHDH-TV prior to Sunday's game versus the Tampa Bay Rays.
"But (on Saturday) it seemed, you...
BOSTON (AP) -- David Ortiz doubled in the go-ahead run for his seventh consecutive hit and the Boston Red Sox won their third straight game over the Tampa Bay Rays, 6-4 on Sunday.
Boston, on a tear since a season-opening 1-5 road trip, can complete a series sweep in Monday's traditional Patriots' Day game that starts at 11:05 a.m. Last year the Red Sox were just 2-7 at home...
BOSTON –– Kevin Youkilis wants to leave the past in the past. In the aftermath of Bobby Valentine's poignant comments surrounding his physical and emotional commitment, the Red Sox third baseman shrugged off the assumption the issue was lingering. "I hope not," Youkilis said. "I hope its one and done type thing and we're all good and we're all one big...
After weighing in on the pregame controversy between Kevin Youkilis and Bobby Valentine, Dustin Pedroia has apparently been able to clear the air with his manager. While speaking to reporters after Monday's game, the Red Sox second baseman explained that he had spoken with his skipper and everything was behind them. See what else Pedroia had to say in this edition of Red Sox Clubhouse Uncut.

With Jacoby Ellsbury sidelined with a dislocated right shoulder injury for at least the next two months, the Red Sox seem in line to add another outfielder to help provide depth. That could come in the way of acquiring Cubs outfielder Marlon Byrd, who has 10 years of major league experience. During the offseason, [...]

The Red Sox have turned things around and it appears that the pitching staff is finally finding their groove. After taking three of four from the Tampa Bay Rays over the long weekend, the Red Sox have kicked things into high gear and are ready to welcome the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees to town. Jon Lester still looks like the ace of this Red Sox staff, tossing two gems in...
There has been talk that the Pittsbugh Pirates could be a team to watch over the next few years. I’ve even heard a comparison to the Tampa Bay Rays – a lower budget team that used their farm system mixed with low leverage free agents. I think the comparison is interesting, but is it realistic for the fans in Pittsburgh?
The 2006 Tampa Bay DEVIL Rays were not...
Despite nearly sweeping a four-game series to open their home schedule, the Boston Red Sox are dealing with another controversy during a tumultuous April.
The Texas Rangers, on the other hand, just keep rolling - even on the road.
