The Awesome Boston:
Lil Wayne takes a break from shooting the “Lover” music video with PJ Morton to chop it up with a few of the Boston Red Sox players. In the video above, Weezy talks about how he met some of the Red Sox players at their clubhouse on June 13th after their game against Miami Marlins at Marlins Park. Tune also goes to show how much of a fan he is by showing a tattoo of their logo on his upper thigh.
A.B. Nice to see that Carl Crawford is still alive. Just hanging with famous rappers & pulling in $20 million a year. Must be nice…

This year Lester has been...

Coming in to Tuesday's series opener at Fenway hosting the Miami Marlins, the offense is one thing that Sox...
David Ortiz homered and Ryan Kalish had a tiebreaking RBI single to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 7-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday night.

Matt Albers (2-0) pitched one inning to pick up the...
Franklin Morales didn't receive a decision for his exploits in Sunday's 7-4 win. But he received much more than a statistic could reflect. With nine strikeouts through five innings –– in an emergency spot start for Josh Beckett –– Morales earned a tremendous amount of respect in the Red Sox clubhouse. And maybe, just maybe, he may get future consideration to be groomed...
It has been years since Mark Prior took the mound for the Major League Baseball team. He last pitched in the Majors for the Chicago Cubs way back in 2006. Hard to believe it has been 6 years since the former phenom threw a pitch in the bigs. Injury after injury, setback after setback, has [...]

It doesn't sound like there will be any sort of long, drawn-out negotiation process for the Red Sox to sign their first-round draft pick. Baseball America reports that the Sox have come to terms with first-round pick Deven Marrero, a slick-fielding shortstop out of Arizona State. According to Baseball America, the deal comes with a $2.05 million bonus for Marrero, who Boston...
