Found July 31, 2012 on NESN.com:
It took long enough, but the Red Sox finally plated a run against Justin Verlander. In fact, they plated quite a few. After allowing multiple baserunners, dealing with the rain and a difficult strike zone, Verlander finally succumbed to the Red Sox attack in the fourth inning. To which NESN Nation's Dan Duquette says: about time. See more in the video above. Join NESN Nation: In-game home page | Twitter | Facebook

Detroit Tigers trade rumors: deadline day deal?

The Detroit Tigers head into the final day of the MLB non-waiver trade deadline with a choice to make. Dropping 5 of 7 on their current homestand has fans in the Motor City uneasy yet again. The decision has boiled down to whether this team should add one final piece to the puzzle. So far, the trade with the Miami Marlins has left much to be desired. Anibal Sanchez got torched north...

Red Sox OF Sweeney punches door, hurts hand

Red Sox outfielder Ryan Sweeney hurt his left hand after punching a door and had to leave the Boston's victory over Detroit in the ninth inning Monday night. Manager Bobby Valentine said after the game that Sweeney was taken out for a defensive replacement because he had done something to his hand in his last at-bat and couldn't throw. Sweeney, however, said following the...

Beckett leaves game with injury

Josh Beckett has left the Boston Red Sox game in the third inning with an apparent lower back injury.

Ryan Sweeney Apologizes to Fans for Punching Wall, Insists It Wasn't Intentional

Ryan Sweeney made a very, very costly mistake on Monday night. The Red Sox outfielder fractured a finger after punching a dugout wall during the Red Sox' win over the Tigers at Fenway Park, and he now may be out for up to two months.

Recap: Sox beat Tigers 7-3 behind Buchholz's strong outing

Maybe this is the start of the good streak that Bobby Valentine (and the rest of us) have been waiting for? All things are looking better for the Sox who managed to get their third win in four games as the Red Sox beat the Tigers, 7-3. It was thanks in large part to Clay Buchholz, as he was able to tame the potent Tigers offense, allowing five hits & three runs (two of them...

Will the Boston Red Sox trade Jarrod Saltalamacchia?

A couple years ago, the Boston Red Sox finally acquired a long sought out catching prospect in Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Once a top prospect, Salty had lost much of his value after a couple years of bouncing back and forth between the major leagues and the minor leagues and completely losing his ability to catch at one point. The Red Sox reclaimed him and he has been a fairly good part...

Adrian Gonzalez, Dustin Pedroia Leading the Way as Red Sox Stay Hot Against Tigers

Editor's note: The temperature gauge is a Bill James-created statistic that measures how hot or cold hitters are. We will spotlight Red Sox and opposing team temperatures on game days. A little trip to New York seemed to help the Red Sox find their mojo, and they've carried it back to Fenway Park. Coming off their third win in a row, the Red Sox will look to ride the hot...

Game 2012.103: Tigers at Red Sox

Detroit Tigers, 54-48, 2nd place, 1.5 back. The Tigers, who were a Peralta away from being swept by the Blue Jays, will stay East and try the Red Sox for a 3-game set that ends Wednesday night on ESPN. Even though the Tigers have started strong in the 2nd half (10-6), they have still been a bit of an offensive jugger-not.  They are batting .257 as a team since the break (.269 before...

Beckett scratched from Sunday start

Josh Beckett has been scratched by the Boston Red Sox from his scheduled start Sunday against the Minnesota Twins. Beckett left Tuesday night's game against Detroit after 2 2/3 innings because of a back spasm.

Red Sox Fans Anxious but Hopeful About Team's Future Despite Quiet Trade Deadline (Video)

The Red Sox had a relatively quiet trade deadline, but that doesn't mean the team is going to pack it in the rest of the way. In fact, the team might actually be gearing up for a significant run at the playoffs following July 31, but not from the usual strategy of bringing in a big name to shake up the clubhouse. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette asked our Twitter followers for...

Breslow's Red Sox debut begins a batter too late

It was precisely the type of situation for which the Boston Red Sox traded for left-handed reliever Craig Breslow. Yet Breslow didn't pitch. With lefty-hitting slugger Prince Fielder coming to the plate in the fifth inning Wednesday night and the Red Sox trailing the Detroit Tigers 5-1 after Miguel Cabrera's two-run homer, manager Bobby Valentine elected to stick with...

Twins-Red Sox Preview

The Boston Red Sox appeared to have found their groove before coming up short their last time out. A visit from the Minnesota Twins could be just what they need to regroup. The Red Sox open a four-game set Thursday night against a Twins club hoping to avoid an 11th loss in 12 games at Fenway Park. Boston (53-52) had won four straight by a combined 22-12 score before falling 7...

Hi folks, I’ll be here all day updating this post with the latest traded deadline news so check back early and often.  It should be an eventful day as the Red Sox have probably played themselves back into a “buyers” label over the past 4 days but they also have a surplus of players in key positions which puts them in a position to sell as well.  Here’s a primer for what...
