Every pitcher wants the inside edge, but no one wants to see someone get hurt. That's why Red Sox reliever Justin Thomas said he was relieved to see Twins first baseman Chris Parmelee getting up after being hit in the head by a pitch in the sixth inning of Wednesday night's Red Sox win. "It was tough," Thomas told ESPN. "It was obviously not my intention. I was throwing a fastball in, busting him in, and it ran off on him. Scary. I was just glad to see at the end of the game that he was back in the...

Things have not gone as planned for the Boston Red Sox, but down on the farm with the club's Triple-A Pawtucket, there are plenty of things to be pleased about.

Recap: Sox hang on for a 7-6 win in Minnesota

First things first: I didn't watch this game. I was too busy watching the Bruins be lousy and lose to Washington in overtime. (I predicted the outcome, which only makes me feel about 4% better.) I'm guessing many of you are like me and didn't watch, so let's take a look-see through the box score and play by play to see what we missed. They got out to an early lead...

It's Going to be a Long Summer

There's a reason, outside of my debilitating illness, why I haven't been posting as much this baseball season as usual and it's pretty simple - this pitching staff sucks to the point where, even if the offense has a monster game, they still have a pretty damn good shot of losing.  It's gotten to the point where when Liam Hendriks didn't allow a run in the first...
