Pedro Martinez was one of the best pitchers that baseball has seen in the past fifty years. Kevin Millar was one of the most beloved Red Sox players in recent memory. It would only make sense to let them emcee the largest toast in history. The two hilarious and gregarious figures returned to Fenway Park on Friday, along with hundreds of other Red Sox alumni, to participate in the Park's 100th anniversary celebration. Both men spent some time after the game chatting about the experience, as Kevin Millar called it "one of the coolest things I've ever done." Check out...

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
The last Red Sox [team stats] manager to receive the kind of booing that was rained upon Bobby Valentine yesterday was Don Zimmer.
And that was more than 30 years ago.
But here’s the thing: While there...
Let's play Pyramid. Go!

What are things less than painful than today's 15-9 Red Sox loss to the Yankees?
The Red Sox bruised and battered Yankee pitching today for 9 runs over the first 5 innings. Not even the shakiest of shaky bullpens could blow an 8-run lead in the 7th inning, right? Wrong. The Yankees put up touchdowns...
As you may have heard by now, Fenway Park is celebrating its 100th birthday on Friday when the Red Sox kick off a three-game series against their rivals, the Yankees. To honor the historic ballpark, NESN's Jenny Dell will don a 1912 Red Sox throwback jersey. Dell's uniform will be a replica of the ones worn by the likes of Hall of Famers Tris Speaker and Duffy Lewis in the...
Red Sox went through an 86-year World Series title drought, and the man that was the architect of putting together the team that finally slayed the dragon in 2004 was not invited to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Fenway Park. Theo Epstein, the former GM of the Red Sox, was left off the guest list [...]
Yup, it’s LiveBlog time!
Here's the release from the Boston Red Sox with some of the details concerning the 100th Anniversary Celebration at Fenway Park tomorrow:
BOSTON, MA - The Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees will face each other tomorrow at 3:05 p.m., just as they did on the same date at the same time on the same field 100 years ago. Both clubs will wear replicas of the uniforms they...
So good, so good, so good. Or is it? The Boston Red Sox ownership wants you to feel that way, masking the Red Sox miserable 4-8 start behind the 100th year ceremony of Fenway Park. Today, they will make their best efforts to make you think about the past, and not the present. But then Terry Francona will step [...]
Only $34.99 for this vintage 1912 looking Boston Red Sox hat? You're god damn right I'll tip the cash register guy an extra $2 just for having it in stock by the time I get there. [Follow me @TravisHouser]
It’s Bobby Valentine vs. Joe Girardi this weekend. We all know that Valentine needs a big weekend, but the manager opposite of him might need to come away with a series victory, as well.
Valentine’s controversial comments about Kevin Youkilis‘ commitment rankled Red Sox Nation- specifically Dustin Pedroia- but the struggles on the field shouldn’t be a surprise. Coming back...
