In The Neutral Zone:
A few weeks ago on Intentional Talk, we learned that Jake Peavy can’t always control himself when he sees something he wants.
But today’s purchase was rather more expensive than a cigar shop Native American statue. Peavy enjoyed his championship ride today so much that he bought the duck boat he was riding in.
Personally, I’m hoping he drives it to Fenway for every game next season, and/or works as a duckboat tourguide on off days.

There were a number of touching moments surrounding the Boston Marathon finish line during the Red Sox’ 2013 World Series championship parade, and David Ortiz added to the tributes.
Shortly after the start of the parade around Boston, the duck boats carrying Red Sox players and their families came to a halt before crossing the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street...
The Boston Red Sox had a massive victory celebration on the streets of Boston today after winning their third World Series in the last decade. But did one Rex Sox player have a little too much fun? Here’s what may be Mike Napoli shirtless and perhaps drunk walking the streets. Mike Napoli is walking around more »
So, everyone has their own way of celebrating a championship. Jake Peavy for example, bought a duck boat yesterday. But take a second and think about which player you'd expect to be really going crazy, maybe Gronk-style for you Patriots fans. My guess would be either Jonny Gomes or Mike Napoli.
A few days ago, Napoli admitted his plans to not sleep for a while.
Dustin Pedroia toughed it out. Now, it’s time to go under the knife.
Pedroia, who played all season despite a complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb, said during an interview on WEEI’s Salk & Holley on Friday that he expects to undergo surgery in a couple of weeks.
Pedroia suffered the thumb injury on Opening Day, but still played in 160 regular...
All good things must come to an end and all great beards must eventually be trimmed.
The Red Sox set out on their championship parade Saturday morning and while postseason heroes David Ortiz and Shane Victorino are focused on celebrating with millions of fans, come Monday the two bearded sluggers will be fresh-faced and cleanly shaven.
Ortiz and Victorino have partnered with Gillette...
The Boston Red Sox are World Series champions for the third time in the last decade. Any Boston sports fan born within the last 10 years has been spoiled by the recent success of the city’s teams, because before that it didn’t come so easily.
It had been 95 years, though, since the Red Sox clinched the World Series on their own turf at Fenway Park. On Wednesday night, the team...
When ESPN.com released their 2013 MLB predictions for the 2013 season in March, not a single expert gave the Boston Red Sox a fighting chance at winning the American League East.
There was too much to overcome.
It was a team trying to resurface after sinking to the bottom of the division just a year ago. A team with more questions attached to them than anybody could possibly answer...
If you spent the past seven months hiding in a cave somewhere, you missed quite the ride.
The Red Sox are World Series champions again, and their return to glory involved one of the most memorable seasons in franchise history. This year truly tested Boston's resilience, and the Red Sox -- like the city -- stood tall.
It became clear in spring training that this season was going...
Boston is preparing for a World Series parade that's expected to draw hundreds of thousands of Red Sox fans into the city to thank the team for a remarkable season.
The parade is set to begin Saturday morning. The players will climb aboard 24 amphibious vehicles at Fenway Park and travel through the city before going into the Charles River.
Security will be tight during the...
The Boston Red Sox will celebrate their 2013 World Series championship with their fans by participating in a parade on Saturday, November 2. The parade will begin at Fenway Park and travel through the streets of Boston.
Once the celebration ends, though, the work resumes in the Red Sox front office. General manager Ben Cherington and his staff will have to find a way to keep the...
David Ortiz, Jonny Gomes and those bearded Boston Red Sox became the face of October, making for a most hairy joyride to the World Series championship.
The Red Sox reversed course and went from worst to first. Major League Baseball also saw big shifts this year - many bright, others more dark - at a time when the game could be transformed forever.
The Pittsburgh Pirates, at long...
Move over Tom Brady, David Ortiz is the king of Boston for the time being.
It’s quite fitting that “Started From The Bottom” was the song of choice, since the Red Sox were in dead last place just a season ago and now they’re on top.
You got to be happy for the city of Boston after what they’ve been through.
In one of the most obvious decisions of the winter, the Boston Red Sox declined the option of left handed reliever Matt Thronton.
Acquired in a trade with the Chicago White Sox, Thornton compiled a 3.74 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 30/15 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 innings of work.
Rather than collecting $6 million for the 2014 season, the Red Sox will pay Thornton a $1 million buyout.
The band of beards won the World Series. But now what happens to the beards? I have to imagine there are a few wives who would appreciate to see their husband's faces for a few months at least.
There appears to be some debate among the team about whether or not the beards stay through the offseason. But David Ortiz and Shane Victorino will lose their whiskers in a shave...
