PLAYERS: Samuel Deduno
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
Whoever got a hold of the Yankees' Facebook page must be working their way up to bigger things. How else to explain the Red Sox' struggles against a no-name pitcher like Samuel Deduno? NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is taking a look at the damage done by an unknown hacker on the social media front Thursday afternoon and figuring that there must be a connection to the Sox' troubles at the plate. See why in the above video. Join NESN Nation: In-game home page | Twitter | Facebook

Sox looked to deal Beckett, Ellsbury, and Shoppach to Rangers

The trade deadline ended without a bang from the Red Sox. The biggest deal of the day for the Sox was the acquisition of Craig Breslow for Albers and Podsednik. We all waited for something to happen with Josh Beckett and a lot of us were bummed to find out he would be on this team for the foreseeable future. This morning, WEEI's Rob Bradford wrote that the Red Sox looked to deal...

There's a tattle-tale in the Red Sox clubhouse

The 2012 Red Sox season continues to take one embarassing turn after another. The latest incident involves a comment Bobby Valentine made to Will Middlebrooks and one anonymous tattle-tale who felt the need to tell the front office: "It's silly, whatever. I don't even remember when it was, but if you need it, because if you don't talk about it then it becomes a...

Scorching Adrian Gonzalez, Jacoby Ellsbury Lead Red Sox Into Series With Twins

Editor's note: The temperature gauge is a Bill James-created statistic that measures how hot or cold hitters are. We will spotlight Red Sox and opposing team temperatures on game days. Despite the tough 7-5 loss to the Tigers on Wednesday night, the Red Sox are still winners of four of their last six, and have won four of six series since the All-Star break. Now they welcome...

Ryan Sweeney 'Sick To His Stomach' About Mistake, Says He Unleashed Months of Anger in Punch

BOSTON –– When the season first started, Ryan Sweeney was an impact player. Through the first 36 games of the year, the Red Sox outfielder had collected more extra-base hits than he tallied during the 2011 season. Midway through May, Sweeney –– at one point –– was leading the Red Sox in batting average. But injuries slowly sapped away his momentum. After suffering a concussion...

Felix Doubront Should Hope for Red Sox Offense to Rediscover Scoring Touch Against Twins (Video)

The Red Sox usually score runs for Felix Doubront -- and that's been a big factor in his success this year. He's also pitched well on his own, but the offensive support helps, for sure. After getting shut out on Thursday night, the Red Sox might be saving up all their runs for a big win on Friday. That's the hope, at least. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette has more in the...

Curt Schilling Inducted Into Red Sox Hall of Fame, 'Nice Honor' Given Controversy Surrounding Him (Video)

Even though Curt Schilling has been in the news for some lousy reasons as of late, it doesn't diminish the appreciation Red Sox Nation has for his achievements in a Boston uniform. In four years with the team, after all, Schill was 53-29 with a 3.95 ERA and 574 strikeouts, garnering an All-Star appearance and second-place finish in the Cy Young voting along the way. More than...

Red Sox Trend of Missed Opportunities Further Proof Team Needs More Than Elite Talent to Succeed

Editor's note: is going to tell the story of the 2012 Red Sox in Bobby Valentine’s words. Each game day, we will select the best Valentine quote that sums up the day for the Red Sox. With two outs in the ninth inning and a man standing at second base, Will Middlebrooks fought through arguably the best at-bat of his young, major league career. The battle went on for...

Breslow's Red Sox debut begins a batter too late

It was precisely the type of situation for which the Boston Red Sox traded for left-handed reliever Craig Breslow. Yet Breslow didn't pitch. With lefty-hitting slugger Prince Fielder coming to the plate in the fifth inning Wednesday night and the Red Sox trailing the Detroit Tigers 5-1 after Miguel Cabrera's two-run homer, manager Bobby Valentine elected to stick with...

Twins' Deduno scratches, claws way to 3-0

Somehow, some way, Samuel Deduno is 3-0 for the Minnesota Twins.Deduno stymied the Boston Red Sox on Thursday in just his fifth career start, holding them to only two hits in six scoreless innings as the Twins beat Boston 5-0 at Fenway Park. Oddly enough, Deduno threw fewer than half of his pitches for strikes. He finished with 101 pitches in six innings; only 50 of them went for...

Sox Shutout By The Twinkies

The Red Sox hoped to be able to make a move up the standing with the Twins coming to town for 4 days, however when they are unable to score a single run it does not usually work out all that well.  Jon Lester took the mound for the Sox and we all collectively crossed our fingers that he would show signs of being that ace pitcher we need him to be.  Lester pitched well, however...

Red Sox trade former prospect Lars Anderson To Cleveland

Going into spring training 2009, the Red Sox thought that first base prospect Lars Anderson had a bright future with the big league club as he was named their number one prospect by Baseball America but all that changed with inconsistent play in the minors and the acquisition of Adrian Gonzalez in December 2010. Now after seven [...]

Twins-Red Sox Preview

The Boston Red Sox appeared to have found their groove before coming up short their last time out. A visit from the Minnesota Twins could be just what they need to regroup. The Red Sox open a four-game set Thursday night against a Twins club hoping to avoid an 11th loss in 12 games at Fenway Park. Boston (53-52) had won four straight by a combined 22-12 score before falling 7...

Recap: Twins beat Boston again

A picture from Jamey Carroll's first major league game, as he attempts to tag out Honus Wagner.  (Photo by Ed Zurga/Getty Images) There's two things you need to know about Twins infielder Jamey Carroll: He looks really old, and he kicked the holy bajeezus out of the Red Sox tonight, as Minnesota took down Boston 6-5 in the 10th.  Both Carroll and Morneau went 4-4 tonight...

Taking Stock: Sox - Tigers series

After every series, we'll take stock of how each individual and group performance affects their overall value. Lineup Jacoby Ellsbury: Four hits and a couple walks, plus an amazing catch last night in center. Ells is starting to come around. Carl Crawford: Carl's in the middle of a five-game hitting streak, and clubbed a homer last night, so maybe I'm being harsh...

Twins 5, Red Sox 0

Samuel Deduno allowed two hits in six innings in his third straight strong performance and the Minnesota Twins spoiled a rare solid outing by Jon Lester and beat the Boston Red Sox 5-0 on Thursday night.
