Found September 18, 2012 on NESN.com:
The Red Sox have played from behind quite a bit so far this season. Lately, they've figured out how to use that to their advantage. Boston's last eight victories have been of the comeback variety, and even though they haven't quite been that plentiful, they've at least been dramatic. Then again, NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is about ready for the team to steamroll their way to a "W" soon. See more in the above video. Join NESN Nation: In-game home page | Twitter | Facebook

MLB Rumors: Why The Boston Red Sox Must Trade Jacoby Ellsbury This Offseason

The Boston Red Sox know that they are retooling – not rebuilding – for the future. They traded Kevin Youkilis, Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett and Carl Crawford during the 2012 MLB season, and they may still be looking to shed some payroll and ship out  a few more good men this offseason. They should start with Jacoby Ellsbury. Trading Ellsbury makes sense for the...

Your Morning Dump...where Felix Doubront is hard to evaluate

Rays 'Walk, Don't Run' to Victory Thanks to Struggles of Boston's Pitching Staff (Video)

Walking hitters is never a good idea, and doing it a double-digit number of times is even worse. Red Sox pitchers walked a whopping 10 batters on Wednesday night, paving the way for a blowout loss to Tampa Bay. Of course, some sloppy plays in the field and on the basepaths didn't help either. At least Scott Atchison was able to escape unscathed, tossing 1 2/3 innings of scoreless...

In our Hope for the Hopeless series, we take a look at all of the teams in the league that finished under .500, and examine what their fans can be optimistic about after a disappointing 2012 season. Calling the Boston Red Sox "hopeless" is unfortunate, but that's just how the series rolls. Anyway, the Red Sox have 80 losses for the first time in a season since...

Red Sox Live Blog: Bobby Valentine Ready to Throw Monkey Wrench Into Joe Maddon's Playoff Plans

8 a.m. ET: The Red Sox have 15 games left to play in 2012. At 66-81 and 17 1/2 games back in the AL East, they have to win out to finish at .500. Don't bet the mortgage, kid's college fund or lunch money that Boston will run the table. In fact, betting anything more than a handshake is a bad idea. The Red Sox have not had a three-game winning streak since July 30 after failing...

Red Sox Stick With Winning Formula to Squash Tampa Bay's Playoff Hopes

After struggling mightily all month, the Red Sox finally seem to have found something resembling a groove, winning four of their last five games and dealing a healthy blow to whatever remaining hopes the Tampa Bay Rays had of sneaking into postseason play.

Tampa Bay is actually in danger of falling too far behind in the chase for the postseason...

PETERSBURG, Fla. - Eliminated from postseason contention on Sunday and assured their first losing season since 1997, the Boston Red Sox pulled the Tampa Bay Rays closer to their own long, frustrating offseason on Monday at Tropicana Field.

Sox 67

Many times in their history Red Sox squads have missed postseason play by failing to win games against inferior teams. This was not happening in early September 67, as the Cardiac Kids swept through the Senators, Yankees and Athletics to stay near the top of the AL's four-team race. Behind the success, however, came ominous signs about the medical condition of one of their most...
