Between the unbelievable turnaround, the players defined by their style of beard and the late-inning heroics that never seem to go out of style, the 2013 Red Sox season has been filled with unforgettable memories, but there’s one postseason series that Jonny Gomes will never fail to remember, and he’s got the film to prove it.
“I don’t think there is a single moment from this ALCS I will forget,” Gomes said in an ESPN.com diary entry. “After Game 6 we got to celebrate going to the World Series. I put on the army helmet again and this time I put a small video camera onto it. I wanted to record some footage for myself. … I don’t think there is a right or wrong way to celebrate. I’ve obviously had some antics up my sleeve and you saw it again.”
Those “antics” have become customary Jonny Gomes, but his wild personality has only added to the cast of characters in the clubhouse. Whether they’re pounding their chests around the bases or tugging at each other’s beards in the dugout, it is

This is the time of year when Tom Menino, the mayor of the city of Boston, really shines.

One year ago, the Red Sox were sitting at home, nursing the wounds of a brutally disappointing 69-93 season. Now, they’re just four wins away from a World Series championship.
It has been a wild ride already for the Red Sox, from the introduction of John Farrell last October to the final out of the American League Championship Series last Saturday. With first pitch of Game 1 of...
John Farrell‘s decision to start John Lackey in Game 2 of the World Series on Thursday was made primarily due to Lackey’s success pitching at home this season.
But the call did lead some to question whether Clay Buchholz, who pitched Game 2 of the ALCS, is fully healthy.
Buchholz is dealing with some “physical issues,” WEEI.com’s Rob Bradford reported early Wednesday, citing...
The Boston Red Sox announced the team’s 25-man active roster for the 2013 World Series with the St. Louis Cardinals and manager John Farrell is sticking with southpaw Franlin Morales.
Fellow-lefty Matt Thornton, who threw a simulated game at Fenway Park on Tuesday, was rumored to be taking Morales’ World Series roster spot after Morales struggled in Game 6 of the ALCS.
The Boston Red Sox took a 3-0 lead against St. Louis Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright in the first inning of Game 1 of the 2013 World Series at Fenway Park.
Boston had appeared to be the victim of a blown call when the second base umpire called Dustin Pedroia out even though Cardinals shortstop Peter Kozma never fully gloved the ball. Red Sox manager John Farrell came out of the...
According to multiple team sources the Red Sox “fully expect” Clay Buchholz to be ready to make his next scheduled start which would presumably be in Game 3 of the World Series against the Cardinals in St. Louis.

As reported by Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com, Hinojosa starred for the Guantanamo Indios in the Serie...
For the fourth time in history, the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals will square off in baseball’s fall classic. For the third time in those matchups, the Red Sox would grab a victory in Game 1, as Boston took an easy 8-1 victory on Wednesday evening at Fenway Park.
Out of the gates the Red Sox would take control of the game and would set sail on the Cardinals, besting...
World Series Game One Preview:
-Boston, Fenway Park
Jon Lester vs. Adam Wainwright
-Lester has very limited experience against Cardinals. In one career start he allowed two earned runs on nine hits. Lester did not factor into the decision, he did strikeout three and issued one walk. Lester is 2-1 this postseason with an ERA of 2.33. He has struck out 14 while walking seven in 19...
Thirty-eight years ago today, one of the greatest moments on Red Sox history happened. It was Game 6 of the 1975 World Series against the Reds. It was in the 12th inning. Carlton Fisk came up to the plate and sent a ball flying toward the foul pole. Fisk started waving the ball fair, it hit the pole and the Red Sox forced a Game 7.
The Red Sox would lose Game 7, but that does...
Curt Schilling thought his Boston Red Sox would sweep the ''bloody sock'' World Series of 2004.
He was right.
Now the big right-hander's former team is playing the St. Louis Cardinals for the championship again, and he expects a much tighter competition.
''I think it's going to go the distance,'' Schilling, an ESPN baseball analyst, said...
