The last time the Boston Red Sox had a pick in the Top 10 was 1993. First pick in that draft was shortstop Alex Rodriguez (you’ve heard of him) by the Seattle Mariners, the easy No.1, even coming out of high school (he turned down playing shortstop and quarterback for the University of Miami). Following Rodriguez came five straight pitchers: two of whom suffered career-shortening...
The Red Sox signed short stop Stephen Drew to a one-year, $9.5 million free agent contract in the offseason, and Drew missed most of spring training because of a concussion. The season certainly did not start out as Drew had anticipated, but the short stop is slowly getting his groove in Boston.
Drew is batting .205 with 3 home runs, 18 RBIs and a .305 on-base percentage and his...
Felix Doubront has had quite the roller coaster season. He’s been able to go from wildly out of control to poised and collected even within the same game at times.
Working with a 5.44 ERA and a 3-2 record, the left-hander recently did some work in the bullpen with Red Sox pitching coach Juan Nieves, focusing on Doubront’s arm speed and finish through the strike zone. Doubront’s...

The Phillies got on the score board early with Michael Young's...

The last time Jonathan Papelbon walked off the mound for the Red Sox, Boston had just completed the worst collapse in team history. Less than three months later, Papelbon, the Sox all-time saves leader, walked out of Fenway for good, signing a four-year, $50 million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies.
Before last night’s game Papelbon was back...
