David Ortiz's 'Papi Power' Not Enough to Overcome Barrage of Toronto Home Runs (Video)

Dustin Pedroia Changes His Sox to Knee Length

DATELINE: HUMOR! With the changing of the guard at Fenway Park we have seen also the changing of the socks. For many years Jason Varitek, known for his notable big C on the chest, was dubbed official “Captain” of the team. One of the unwritten signs he was the old fashioned task master was the way he wore his red stockings. Varitek kept them like knee socks. High and red were...

In the fourth inning of that game, Youkilis launched a home run to left field against 1996...

Does Toronto or Boston Have the Most Dangerous 3-4 Combo in the American League?

Bonus Quote of the Day

"It's tough because I know how hard he's played and he's given everything he has in every game he's ever put on a Red Sox uniform.  I wanted to go out and play hard just like he does.
