Mike Carp is hitting a lot like David Ortiz lately. It isn’t by accident.
“I always joke with [Ortiz],” Carp said, according to MassLive.com. “I say, ‘I try to be like you.’”
Carp may be joking to a certain extent, but he admitted following Saturday’s 5-4 victory over the Orioles that

Boston Red Sox first baseman Mike Carp exited yesterday’s loss
to the Baltimore Orioles with right hamstring tightness. After the game, manager
John Farrell told reporters – including Todd Karpovich of MLB.com – that he
considers Carp day to day and hopes to have him available on Tuesday following
the team’s off-day.
"He felt cramping go up first base, but I...
This seem to have taken a slight detour for Mike Carp.
The first baseman exited Sunday’s game against the Orioles in the seventh inning with tightness in his right hamstring. The issue doesn’t appear too serious though, and Carp anticipates that he will be ready to go for Tuesday’s matchup against the Rays.
Carp has been red-hot so far in June, and says he feels confident that...
Everything has been going right for Mike Carp recently. Things changed on Sunday.
Carp exited Sunday’s game against the Orioles in the seventh inning with right hamstring tightness. The good news is that the injury doesn’t appear to be anything serious, and he might not miss any time.
“Hopefully with the day off [on Monday] he’ll be available on Tuesday,” manager John Farrell...
The Red Sox have Monday off and then play a double-admission day-night doubleheader against the Rays on Tuesday. Based on current evaluations, both Mike Napoli and Mike Carp should be ready to play in those Tuesday games.

Mike Carp has told NESN that he tries to model himself after David Ortiz. And who wouldn't? I doubt anyone, even the most diehard Yankee fan, would dispute he's one of the great hitters to play the game. He won't pass Hank Aaron's 755 home runs (Bonds used steroids, so Aaron is still the record holder for home run in my books), but he'...
If Clay Buchholz doesn't throw in the bullpen Tuesday, he's likely headed for the disabled list. Buchholz is still experiencing pain in his neck. If he’s alright after the bullpen session, he could start Saturday in Detroit. If Buchholz can't go, the Saturday starter could be Rubby De La Rosa or Allen Webster.
That' a lot of "...
Jose Iglesias has been used primarily at third base during his most recent major league call-up, but he’ll get the start at his natural position, shortstop, when the Red Sox take on the Orioles in Baltimore on Friday.
Iglesias — promoted from Pawtucket when Will Middlebrooks went on the disabled list in late May — has performed well enough to merit an extended stint with the...
Mike Carp and Jonny Gomes homered to back an effective pitching performance by John Lackey, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Orioles 5-4 Saturday to end a five-game losing streak in Baltimore.
After dropping the first two games of the series, the Red Sox fell into an early 2-0 hole before bouncing back. Carp's home run snapped an 18-inning scoring drought in the fourth, and Gomes...
