Mike Lowell has been around the baseball block quite a few times. He's been around the block in Boston, too, so there isn't much the former third baseman hasn't seen. Keeping that in mind, Lowell is just the person you'd want to talk to about all of the drama, allegations and everything else that has surrounded the Sox in the last month or so. Lowell was a guest on the Dan LeBatard Radio Show on Friday, and he was asked about the rumored beer drinking that allegedly went on in the Red Sox clubhouse this season. "If they're not pitching...

Adrian Gonzalez Doesn't Blame Red Sox Collapse on Tough Schedule, Explains Answer Was Printed Out of Context

Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, like the rest of his teammates, caught a lot of flack late in the season. Gonzo was the subject of sports talk radio and ridiculed throughout local and national baseball media outlets days after the team's final 2011 contest for supposedly complaining about and blaming the team's collapse on a tough schedule. The slugger spoke on the...

Lou Merloni wants answers

Lou Merloni demanded answers on yesterday's installment of Mohegan Sun Sports tonight on CSNNE. He demanded what everyone else in Boston has been demanding for 2 weeks, answers to what the hell is going on. "I want to know what happened," Merloni said. "What happened? What changed? Josh Beckett was expecting a baby in September. Was he just . . . [did his...

Ace Beckett Disappoints Former Manager Jack McKeon

 DATELINE: HUMOR! Boston Red Sox pitcher Josh Beckett has a history of clubhouse carousing during the game. Former Marlins manager Jack McKeon at age 80 represents a bygone era when players didn’t go pee-pee without keeping a hand in the game. One of the worst offenders of the Red Sox country clubhouse hangout scandal in September was the foremost Florida Marlin PeeWee...

Theo Epstein Compensation Links: Saturday

It's been three days since Red Sox GM Theo Epstein agreed to a five-year contract worth $18.5MM to take over as GM of the Cubs, and now the two teams are discussing compensation for Boston letting Epstein out of the final year of his contract. Yesterday we learned that the Cubs would like to complete the deal with just cash, but the Sox want "something real" in return...

Who's Fatter, Josh Beckett Or Jessica Simpson?

If you were looking for a low point in the Boston Globe's ongoing coverage of the Boston Globe's version of the Boston Red Sox collapse, look no further! (We hope!) The paper now has a slideshow entitled "Did the Red Sox pack on the pounds?" More »

Florida Marlins: 2003 champs get no respect; catch Mike Lowell on MLB Network

Thanks to our friend Michael Jong at the Marlin Maniac blog for bringing a couple of lists to our attention. Among some bloggers, the 2003 World Series-winning Marlins aren’t held in high esteem. That club recently appeared on two lists of the worst World Series champions  in history. One was on Yahoo! Sports and listed the ‘03 Marlins along with the 2006 Cardinals, 1990 Reds...

Berkman and Ellsbury are Comeback Players

MLB Announced on Thursday that St. Louis Cardinal right fielder Lance Berkman and Boston Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury have won the Comeback Player of the Year award for their leagues. Berkman was coming off a forgetful 2010 where he batted .248 and was traded from the only team he ever played for. Things didn’t get better after he joined the Yankees at the trade deadline...

Theo Epstein Likely in Interesting Position As Red Sox, Cubs Continue Game of Negotiations

By now it seems that Theo Epstein is all but certainly going to become the next general manager of the Chicago Cubs. For that to happen, the Red Sox and Cubs have to finally come to terms on compensation as the GM has a year left on his contract in Boston. However, those talks aren't progressing very quickly, according to The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo who checked in on...

Red Sox’s clubhouse woes a problem only because team collapsed

The characters and details might change on the male soap opera you care about most. At the University of Miami, the script called for prostitutes and cash payments. In Boston, it was fried chicken and beer. But the narratives that surround a sports scandal — temptation everywhere, characters turned into caricatures, villains lurking, heroes rising and falling — are essentially...
