Found July 28, 2013 on Surviving Grady:
Maybe it was the frustration of dropping out of first place finally taking its toll or a bad call that really, really pissed him off. But David Ortiz took out all his frustrations and then some on the dugout phone, while million-dollar man Dustin Pedroia tried to steer clear of the shrapnel. If you haven’t seen this raw display of anti-phone sentiment yet, my ****** recording may do the trick. Thankfully, Papi had the good sense not to go the “Full Tavarez” on the phone with his bare hand and put himself out of the pennant race. Elsewhere, the only thing Stephen Drew hit was baseballs. For two home runs. So that helped us pick up a rare win vs. Baltimore and stay one-half game behind the Rays. Today, we got Lester on the hill. Gotta take that series, boys. Gotta take it.

Stephen Drew Gives Reason to Believe He’ll Find Rhythm With Big Effort Against Orioles

Perhaps it was just a matter of timing. Stephen Drew, who had been 1-for-15 since returning from the disabled list, went 3-for-4 with two home runs, five RBIs and three runs scored as the Red Sox’ offense finally broke through in a 7-3 win over the Orioles on Saturday. It was Drew’s first big effort since returning from a hamstring injury, and it could be the start of something...

Recap - Stephen Drew too much for O's

Jim Monaghan Contributing writer Stephen Drew smacked a pair of home runs and drove in five runs as the Red Sox beat the Orioles 7-3 in Baltimore to even the series at a game apiece.

Red Sox 'Drew Up' A Victory; Then Got One, 7-3

(AP Photo/Gail Burton)Stephen Drew has basically been mired in a season-long batting slump—until Saturday night. Drew went 3 for 4 with three runs scored and five RBIs—four of which came on his two HRs. Shane Victorino also homered in the 7-3 Boston win—that kept the team within 1/2 game of the AL East lead. Ryan Dempster pitched just well enough to win—going 5 1/3 innings...

Red Sox 7, Orioles 3

Stephen Drew hit two homers, drove in five runs and scored three times to power the Boston Red Sox past the Baltimore Orioles 7-3 on Saturday night.

A return to form for the Red Sox

Last night, a Red Sox shortstop had a day: Three hits, two home runs and five runs batted in. The last time a Boston shortstop did that was 2002, when Nomar Garciaparra did the trick. Stephen Drew did it last night against the Orioles at Camden Yards. This is me, eating crow. In this space, just hours before the Sox took the field in Baltimore for the second of a three...

O's Lose to Red Sox; Do they need more help?

At this point, we all know that the Baltimore Orioles lost 7-3 last night to the Red Sox at a sold-out Camden Yards on Saturday night. Stephen Drew tagged the Orioles for two home runs, and David Ortiz went bat-sh*t crazy in the seventh inning after being ejected for a questionable call on strikes. Scott Feldman had a so-so start, going only five innings and allowing four...

Boston Red Sox Weekly: Standings battles, a rebounding ace, and Rise of the PhoneSlayer

AL East Standing: 1st Current Record: 63-43 Weekly Record: 3-3 (Every Sunday I will attempt to give some brief thoughts on the past week for the Boston Red Sox. I twill be filled with hopes, frustrations, exhilaration, pain and puns. Lots of puns.) (QUICK NOTE: You may notice a complete lack of trade deadline talk below. That’s because I just wrote about 2,000 words on the very...

Pedroia Toasted as New Face of the Franchise in Boston

There is a new face of the Red Sox franchise. On Wednesday the Boston Red Sox announced that they have agreed to an eight-year $110 million contract extension with All-Star second baseman, Dustin Pedroia. The contract was announced on the Fenway Park field in front of media members and teammates on a makeshift podium and stage with Pedroia fittingly wearing a Red Sox uniform....

Pedroia extension the right move

© Kayla Chadwick 2012 I could spend weeks waxing poetic about what Dustin Pedroia means to the Red Sox organization, the city of Boston, and the fans, so to say I was thrilled when I found out about his new contract extension would be an understatement for the ages. Yes, I understand why some people have reservations about the length of the deal. One of Pedroia’s greatest strengths...

Dustin Pedroia Says David Ortiz’s Outburst ‘Part of the Game,’ Just Wanted to Calm Down Heated Slugger

Look out, Dustin! Dustin Pedroia was forced to take cover as David Ortiz went bonkers on a phone hanging in the visitor’s clubhouse at Camden Yards on Saturday. Ortiz swung wildly at the phone with a bat, all but destroying it, and he eventually charged back onto the field before being restrained. Pedroia appeared to confront Ortiz following the incident, but the second baseman...

Official Video: David Ortiz took a strike so he beat up a defenseless telephone

Taking all the way in a really odd fashion with the count 3-0 (he stepped out of the box) -- David Ortiz took a called strike from Tim Timmons that would have hit the catcher in the face if he didn't have a glove. 3-1, 3-2, strike out. The Sox DH was not happy. So much so that he destroyed a phone in the dugout with little regard for Dustin Pedroia. Your browser does not support...

Irate Ortiz explodes in Baltimore

Via @TheScore Last night, David Ortiz was ejected by home plate umpire Tim Timmons for arguing balls and strikes, and took out his frustrations on a seemingly indestructible dugout phone. Despite the fact that Ortiz’s frustration was legitimate, his behavior was not. I’m perfectly aware that ejected players and coaches often unleash their anger on inanimate objects – but...

Sox week in review: The good, the bad & the ugly

The Guru Contributing Writer Another week down, another Red Sox roller coaster ride. Dustin Pedroia got paid, the Clay Buchholz watch is at day 50, trade rumors swirled and Big Papi turned into the Hulk. It was a tough week for the Red Sox, but they managed to wrestle first place back from the Tampa Bay Rays. For the time being. The Sox beat the Yanks last Sunday, lost two of...
