Hall of Very Good:
As if it needed to be said...clearly mascots and alcohol do not mix. According to the Tampa Bay Times, Tampa Bay Rays mascot Raymond was assaulted during the team's game against the Boston Red Sox Tuesday night. The assaliant...some dude named Trevor Martin who hails from suburban Boston. Martin, 27, reached across the stadium's railing and twice grabbed Raymond by the neck, officers said. Martin was staggering, slurring his words and smelled of alcohol, according to an arrest affidavit. Raymond pushed back and broke free, police said. Martin, who told officers he drank two beers during the game, faces a misdemeanor charge of disorderly intoxication. The "victim within the mascot suit" declined to press battery charges, police said. Martin was released from Pinellas County Jail early Wednesday on $100 bail. Yes. Two beers. Suuuuure. But who knows...maybe Martin is a big Steve Irwin fan and just looking for retaliation.

It must be tough to have a $228,106,125 payroll and be fighting for your life in the "second" Wild Card race. Maybe that's why The Evil Ones are behaving in such Bush League fashion by charging other teams with sign-stealing. In their last two series they have accused both the Red Sox and Orioles of pilfering signage—and specifically fingered Mike Carp of The Carmine...

By any rational accounting, the Red Sox are in superb shape to win the AL East and host the opening two games of the Divisional Series starting on Friday, October 4th. That's by any rational accounting. But this is Red Sox Nation. With membership you check your 'rational hat' at Gate B's Buckner/Dent Memorial Hat Check Stand. It's Friday the 13th, the Yankees...
Red Sox closer Koji Uehara literally has been unhittable for the Red Sox. The closer has retired 34 consecutive batters, the longest run of perfection by a Sox pitcher all-time. Uehara has not allowed a hit since Aug. 17.
As the Boston Herald reported Wednesday, when Sox manager John Farrell was asked if he'd seen a run like the one Koji is on he...
The most coveted international prospect this offseason will be Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka. Teams are scouting the dominant pitcher and it looks like he is set for a big pay day this offseason if he does in fact come to the Major Leagues.
The teams that were scouting Masahiro Tanaka during his last start were the Yankees, Red Sox, Mariners, Braves and Diamondbacks, according...
Welcome back, Clay Buchholz.
The Red Sox starting pitcher hasn’t pitched for the big league club since June 8, but makes his long-awaited return tonight when Boston takes on the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.

The Red Sox have the largest lead in the AL East since 2004. Did the scoreboard operators in Tampa check that? Because this is reality - the Red Sox have been red hot as of late, hence the huge lead over Tampa Bay. In 2004, the Yankees had a 9.5 game lead over the Red Sox, then the Red Sox closed...
Guest article from our pals at TiqIQ:
Things are looking good at Fenway Park, where the mood has been set back to triumph and hope instead of despair and indignation. The Red Sox have enjoyed a strident streak since late August, going 13-4 in their last 17 games, on the back of great pitching and power contributions from all over the diamond.
The Sox’s season-long resurgence...
Mike Carp connected for a pinch-hit grand slam in the 10th inning as the Red Sox put another nail in the Rays playoff coffin with a 7-3 win Wednesday night.
Carp sent the first pitch from the former Fausto Carmona over the center-field fence. It was the first pinch-hit grand slam for Boston since Kevin Millar in 2003.
Carp said, "He hung a slider...
