BEST OF MAXIM
Josh Beckett did not have his best stuff on the mound on Friday night. Beckett allowed six runs over the first two innings in the first of a four-game series against the Yankees, putting Boston into a major hole. The Red Sox offense was able to capitalize and put forward a great effort in hopes of capturing the victory, but ultimately they came up short. Beckett spoke to reporters...
The Red Sox bats finally showed up, but unfortunately it would be at the same time that Beckett had one of the worst first innings of his career and a hiccup by the bullpen to allow the Yanks to take the first game of the series.
Josh Beckett was just dreadful in the first inning. Horrible. Bad. No good. Beckett gave up 3 runs before getting a single out. By the end of...
Hiroki Kuroda entered Friday night as one of the hottest pitchers in baseball, but as many pitchers before him have found out, Fenway Park can bring any hot streak to an end. Kuroda watched his New York Yankees teammates stake him to a five-run lead before he took the mound, but he gave it all back in the bottom of the first, surrendering five runs before he recorded his third...
David Waldstein has a great piece on Yankees pitcher Hiroki Kuroda's childhood in the NYT titled Yankees’ Kuroda Was Molded by Pain in Japan.
“It was a generation,” the 37-year-old Kuroda said...

Tonight was no fun. No fun at all. Josh Beckett stinks up the joint. Ray Allen signs with the Heat. The Yankees beat Boston 10-8 in a game that lasted one minute shy of 4 hours.
Tonight's game was actually pretty exciting. Josh Beckett came out and was just awful. I can't stress that enough. Here's what his first inning consisted of:

Last season, Beckett went 4-0 with a 1.85 ERA against the Yankees. In his last start, Beckett showed no signs of rust, yielding...

After watching the top half of the 1st inning last night, you were probably sitting there going well this is going to be one long night after you watch the New York Yankees score five runs off of Josh Beckett. But after the 1st inning was completely over and you watched the Boston Red Sox come back with five runs of their own, you probably said okay, we've got a chance.

Seemingly taking a page from Josh Beckett's Friday evening debacle, Franklin Morales allowed 4 runs in the top of the 1st inning as the Yankees beat the Red Sox 6-1 in the opening game of Saturday's day/night doubleheader at Fenway Park.Morales (pictured) served up home runs to Nick Swisher (with 2 on) and Andruw Jones (solo) with 2 out to account for the Yankees runs in...
After going on 2-5 on their road trip to the left coast, the Boston Red Sox return home for four games in three days against their AL East rivals the New York Yankees at historic Fenway Park.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. and will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Yankees television market, you can catch the game on YES. And...
After Saturday night's 9-5 win over the Yankees, the Red Sox find themselves one game over .500 heading into the last game before the All-Star break. At 43-42, the Sox are 8 1/2 games back of the division-leading Yankees but only 2 1/2 games out of the second wild card spot, currently held by the Orioles. While this is undoubtedly disappointing for a team with a $173 million...
