I have absolutely no idea what Gomes is talking about in this brief interview with Jenny Dell. But I’m happy to nominate “Battle tested, battle tested. Boys club, men’s league, time to go to work” as the official mantra of the 2013 Red Sox.
As an added bonus, listen at the end of the clip for NESN’s Jim Rice admitting he didn’t understand a word that Gomes just said. Gold.

The title sounds a lot more salacious than this clip actually is. But you have to love Clay’s nonchalant expression as he douses Jenny D with Bud Light, which is a far better use of that stuff than actually drinking it. Also, Tom Caron’s, “Welcome to the party, Jenny Dell” has become my new catchphrase. At least since 2:00am this morning.

Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz demonstrates his "victory dance" in a new CapriSun commercial to promote their Kids vs Pros Playground Throwdown Event.
Fortunately this is only a commercial, or else Big Papi would be starting up a bench clearing brawl with those moves.
In the CapriSun contest, kids between the ages of 6-17 can enter to get a chance to take...
Koji Uehara is human. He’s also a ninja.
OK, maybe only one of those is true. But Clay Buchholz revealed Sunday — before Uehara suffered a Game 3 loss Monday that had his teammates saying that he’s only human — that the Red Sox have a unique nickname for the Japanese closer.
“We call him ‘The Ninja,’” Buchholz said Sunday. “He throws two pitches and it always seems...
True to the 2013 Red Sox, Boston punched their ticket to the ALCS in dramatic fashion.
The Rays used nine pitchers in the contest, the Sox staged a seventh-inning rally and Koji Uehara tossed the final four outs of the game to close out the eventful Game 4 at Tropicana Field.
Tampa struck first in the fourth inning after David DeJesus‘ single into right field scored Yunel Escobar...
Jonny Gomes is doing some sort of celebration after the Boston Red Sox tied the Tampa Bay Rays in the 7th inning of Game 4 of the 2013 ALDS. It’s kind of a throw back to professional wrestler George “The Animal” Steele and I can only hope that at the end of the game Gomes starts eating a turnbuckle.
I love how everyone else in the dugout has no idea what he is doing either...
This clip is strait out of America’s Funniest Home Videos. As you can see here, David Ortiz is pitching a little batting practice for his nephew. The Ortiz family tradition of batting left handed continues, and maybe his long ball capabilities too. The nephew swings for the fences and sends one straight for the nether region, sending the Red Sox’s $14 million star to the ground...
Evan Longoria hit a walk-off home run on the final day of the 2011 regular season to crush the Red Sox’ playoff hopes. Two years later, Koji Uehara struck out Longoria to finish off the Rays in the ALDS and punch the Red Sox’ ticket to the 2013 ALCS.
Uehara’s series-ending strikeout wasn’t before four hard-fought games between Boston and Tampa Bay. The Red Sox jumped out...
Now that the Sox are barrelling their way through the postseason, it’s getting to be the time for awards. No matter what team wins, there’ll be an ALCS MVP and a World Series MVP. So who are all the MVPs on the Red Sox?
This one is a little tricky for me. If we’re talking regular season, I’m going to have to go with David Ortiz....
Boston Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury has starred all season long (.298 BA, 53 SB). He made that star shine even brighter (9 for 18, 4 SB) in the ALDS against Tampa Bay. It appears, though, that Ellsbury’s star may have to shine somewhere else in 2014.
The Boston Herald’s John Tomase reports that the Red Sox are not willing to sign Ellsbury to the eight-year contract...
Everything must go T…Former Red Sox hero Curt Schilling is selling all the items in his home, even the home itself is being auctioned. Schilling is believed to have lost $50million that he had invested into video game company 38 Studios, which filed for bankruptcy last year. Consignworks.com has announced it is holding an estate sale at Curt Schilling’s residence in Medfield...
Looks like we might have another Big Papi coming up the ranks. See this video and GIF of a little Papi (David Ortiz's nephew), swinging a bat just like his uncle. Hilariousness ensues, as he nails Papi right where the sun don't shine. Should the Red Sox just sign him now? I think so.
This ladies and gentleman is why cups were invented.
DISCLAIMER: I am 100 percent selfishly rooting for the Oakland A's to win today's Game 5 because I live in the Bay Area and I want nothing more than to go to a game.
But, my personal feelings aside, let's take a look at who's actually the easier opponent for the Red Sox ALCS: The Tigers or the Athletics?
The Tigers: The Red Sox lost the season series...
Shane Victorino's infield single snapped a seventh-inning tie
and journeyman Craig Breslow gave Boston a huge boost out of the
bullpen, sending the Red Sox into the AL championship series with a
3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.
Walk-off home run by the Tampa Bay Rays ... wicked awesome, Boston Red Sox.
