Hours earlier, Boston manager Bobby Valentine downplayed the uproar over Beckett's golf outing last week, which came a...

Golf, Really? We're Mad About Golf?

ZOMG! Report: Josh Beckett played golf before missing Red Sox startOn one hand, this is the dumbest controversy ever. The notion that a major league pitcher who throws in the 90s is somehow being recklessly irresponsible by playing a game favored by retirees is absolutely laughable.On the other hand, the atmosphere is so charged, with this team continuing to lose, it's like a...

Enemy Chatter: If Sox made the playoffs, we wouldn't be talking about golf

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Red Sox after playing the Red Sox. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Cleveland. Above is a photo posted on Let's Go Tribe which depicts Beckett's rehab assignment. Clever. The Indians took advantage of a sub-par outing from Josh Beckett, drove the ball over...

Box Score: Indians 8, Red Sox 3

The Indians jumped all over Josh Beckett, chasing him in the third inning after plating seven. Derek Lowe earned his fifth win, which must be killing the faithful in Bawston.

Thank You, Atlanta: Derek Lowe Serves as Veteran Anchor on a Young Staff

Derek Lowe returned to familiar grounds with familiar fan fare. As Bostonians welcomed Lowe back with open arms and signs thanking him for his time spent with their team, the veteran right-hander approached the historic Fenway Park as a former inhabitant whose keys still made the locks turn. The headlines will belong to Washington’s Steven Strasburg who fanned 13 Pittsburgh Pirate...

Bobby Valentine Says Josh Beckett Wouldn't 'Jeopardize His Team or His Season' With Golf Outing

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Josh Beckett is coming under fire for playing golf with a sore lat muscle after missing a start. But Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine isn't ready to jump to any conclusions.

Lowe regaining his prime form at age 38

The losingest pitcher in the National League last year is now one of the winningest pitchers in the American League. So far, the Indians are quite happy with their offseason trade for Derek Lowe.

Red Sox Mailbag: Trading Josh Beckett, Clay Buchholz, Kevin Youkilis Very Unlikely

The Red Sox are currently in the basement of the American League East. After the first month of the season, they don't have the luxury of pointing to last year's remarkable turnaround, considering they were 18-20 at this point in 2011. The starting pitching is seemingly in disarray and could receive a boost when Daisuke Matsuzaka returns. In the meantime, let's take a...

Indians 8, Red Sox 3: Hannahan, Brantley Batter Beckett as Tribe Fans Grin

Let me just get this right out of the way off the top; I do not like Josh Beckett. Never have. Never will. Not only did he used to own the Indians, particularly during the 2007 ALCS where he wont both of his starts, but he also won a World Series title with the Florida Marlins in 2003 where he was the MVP. The Marlins having two rings in a seven-year span makes me ill on so many...

Derek Lowe, Johnny Damon Would Really Be Valuable to Red Sox Nowadays

It's been eight years since Johnny Damon and Derek Lowe helped lead the Red Sox to their first World Series title in 86 years, but there's still something special about watching them step foot on the Fenway Park dirt.
