Boston Red Sox
New York Yankees
The rivalry continues, this time with a little bit more juice behind it (pun intended).
Alex Rodriguez makes his first appearance at Fenway Park since the Biogenesis allegations and MLB suspension/appeal. He’ll be greeted cordially by the Fenway Faithful. Nothing to see here.
The Boston Red Sox (72-51) try to turn around their recent woes with a quick three-game home stand against the New York Yankees (62-58), who come in hot having won five of their last seven games. Felix Doubront, who only went four innings in his last start due to a high pitch count, starts for the Red Sox. He is 8-5 with a 3.66 ERA this season and has a career 2.36 ERA against New York in 10 games (six starts). Doubront has not given up more than two runs in any of the 10 appearances and has gone at least six innings in each of his six starts.
In his last start, Doubront allowed three earned runs, marking the 16th straight start he has given up three or less. That ties the ...

DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA
Alex Rodriguez's new lawyer, top New York criminal defense attorney Joe Tacopina, says the team misled A-Rod about his injuries.
WON'T GET ANIMATED

THEY NAMED NAMES
Members of Alex Rodriguez's inner circle reportedly leaked names of players implicated in the Biogenesis scandal, including Ryan Braun, to the media.
The Boston Red Sox could use a little love from Fenway Park.
They haven’t seen their home since August 4th as they’ve been occupied with a 10-game road trip that featured the Royals, Astros, and Blue Jays. A road trip filled with mediocre baseball, lackluster defense, and way too many runners left on base (33 in the Blue Jays series). A road trip that I’m glad has come to an...
Alex Rodriguez says he's cutting off all non-baseball talk after a wild weekend of accusations and retaliations on and off the field.

On Friday, Alex Rodriguez strongly denied a report that he implicated fellow players, including New York Yankees teammate Francisco Cervelli, as a PED user to a website back in January.Rodriguez also implied the story was just the latest in a series of leaks designed to further tarnish his image as he moves forward with his appeal of the 211-game suspension, which was handed down...
This guy just makes it so difficult to have any sympathy for him. I have never been much of a fan of his, but as I wrote a few weeks ago, I do think he is the white whale to Bud Selig’s Captain Ahab.
Now, news that will probably end up turning even the most hardcore A-Rod supporter against him. 60 Minutes has learned that Alex Rodriguez camp allegedly leaked unredacted versions...
It’s always a spectacle when the Red Sox take on the Yankees. But one of the greatest rivalries in all of sports will have an added bit of intrigue when New York travels to Boston this weekend.
Alex Rodriguez will play at Fenway Park for the first time since he was suspended 211 games by Major League Baseball for his involvement in the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug scandal...
(AP Photo/Winslow Townson)This one was over almost as soon as it started. Felix Doubront simply didn't have it in one of his most important starts of the year—against a Yankee team he has handcuffed historically. When he left the game after four, The Evil Ones had put up seven runs—on the way to a 10-3 drubbing. Boston could never generate a sustained offensive push—running...
Is there a GIF that captures Alex Rodriguez more perfectly than this one? That’s A-Rod’s face superimposed onto the body of Vince McMahon, doing the WWE boss’ power walk into the ring. Though he has always wanted to be liked and have that good guy persona, Rodriguez is disliked by most sports fans and makes […]
The Boston Red Sox are beginning a three-game series against the New York Yankees on Friday night at Fenway Park. John Lackey is scheduled to pitch for Boston on Saturday, but he is not looking forward to facing Alex Rodriguez. It’s not that he fears the Yankees slugger — he just doesn’t think he deserves […]
JOIN THE GROUP
With the Yankees in town, Red Sox pitcher John Lackey let it be known under no uncertain terms that he has an issue with A-Rod playing during his appeal.
Alex Rodgriguez and Bud Selig aren’t the most trustworthy individuals, so who knows who is telling the truth, but it is in MLB’s best interest to make A-Rod look as bad as possible.
Someone is lying and honestly I don’t know who.
