The Boston Red Sox are headed to the American League Championship Series following a 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night. A year after finishing in last place, the AL East champion Red Sox
BEST OF MAXIM
Something tells me the Rays fans at Tropicana Field weren’t exactly very kind to Shane Victorino during Tuesday’s ALDS Game 4, as Victorino had a little message for them as soon as the Sox eliminated Tampa.

This is a fun video shot by the Globe's Peter Abraham during batting practice on Sunday. David Ortiz starts hitting with an aluminum bat and just slams one after another into the stands. Reportedly, he did this eight times in a row. Note Tom Petty's "Free Falling" playing in the background. It couldn't be a more appropriate song in my opinion.
Something I like to look at after every season is a chart of the locations of all the season’s intentional balls. Intentional balls, of course, are supposed to be super far away from the strike zone, but out of any such group there has to be a pitch that’s closest to being a strike, and for some reason those pitches fascinate me. This project would by no means be timely right...
True to the 2013 Red Sox, Boston punched their ticket to the ALCS in dramatic fashion.
The Rays used nine pitchers in the contest, the Sox staged a seventh-inning rally and Koji Uehara tossed the final four outs of the game to close out the eventful Game 4 at Tropicana Field.

The Boston Red Sox are one of the wilder teams in baseball. After they beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 in Game 4 of the ALDS to clinch a berth into the ALCS, you knew they would be partying hard. But nobody was prepared for the scene we saw inside the clubhouse. Reliever Koji Uehara […]
The Boston Red Sox benefited from a close call in Game 3 of the ALDS against the Tampa Bay Rays that helped them score two extra runs. Jacoby Ellsbury was on second with one out in the top of the fifth when Shane Victorino hit a chopper in the 5-6 hole. Rays shortstop Yunel Escobar […]
Looks like we might have another Big Papi coming up the ranks. See this video and GIF of a little Papi (David Ortiz's nephew), swinging a bat just like his uncle. Hilariousness ensues, as he nails Papi right where the sun don't shine. Should the Red Sox just sign him now? I think so.
This ladies and gentleman is why cups were invented.
Just when it seemed like this series was over, the unlikeliest of players took center stage and swung the momentum of this American League Divisional Series drastically. But even before the Tampa Bay back up catcher, Jose Lobaton, belted a walk off home run to right center filed to give the Rays the victory, things seemed to be taking a different path than that of the first two games...
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Shane Victorino's infield single snapped a seventh-inning tie and journeyman Craig Breslow gave Boston a huge boost out of the bullpen, sending the Red Sox into the AL championship series with a 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.
Koji Uehara got the final four outs -- one night after giving up a game-winning homer -- and the Red...
Over the past few years of playoff baseball, fans have come to understand that their are a couple of rules when it comes to playoff baseball.
1. The hottest team will tend to win in the short series’
2. The best starting pitcher will make the difference in the series.
3. Three man rotations are the keys to winning a series.
4. Offensive production does not tend to carry over into...
The gritty ballers known as the Boston Red Sox have proved every single "expert" wrong by winning the AL East, compiling the best record in the American League, taking out the Tampa Bay Rays in the ALDS and now found themselves poised to win their third World Series in nine years.
With a memorable 3-1 comeback win Tuesday night, the Red...
Good As Gone?It's been a rough week for David Price. Not only was he knocked around by the Red Sox last Saturday (including two HRs by David Ortiz), but his TWITTER rants after the game have been vilified far and wide. Now, Price is getting all cranky about the likelihood that he will be shipped out of Tampa this off-season by the cost-conscious Rays. Just as his former teammates...

First off, GO SOX! We are going to the ALCS!
Great, now that that's out of the way, let's look ahead to the ALCS, and I'll tell you who needs to step up against either the Oakland Athletics or the Detroit Tigers. Let me be clear - there were some gaping problems in the ALDS, especially in...
