Mark Melancon Says Becoming More 'Fiery' Is What Has Fueled Shutdown September

When the Red Sox acquired Mark Melancon last December in a trade with the Astros, they expected him to be a vital piece of the bullpen. But Melancon has been far from the lights-out closer who shined in Houston. Through his first 33 games for the Red Sox, which were interrupted with a nearly two-month-long detour to Pawtucket, Melancon had a 7.71 ERA. This September, however, he...

Taking Stock: Red Sox Orioles series

After every series, we'll take stock of how each individual and group performance affects their overall value. Lineup Grouping everyone together continues to be the most efficient way to do this. I don't care about the homers from Ross, Salty, and Nava, because that was the extent of production from those guys. They were completely embarrassed in game 1, by getting held...

Your Morning Dump... Where Tek's role is becoming a little more clear

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. Ex-captain Jason Varitek [stats] is now a member of the front office, a special assistant to general manager Ben Cherington, and for someone who was here in uniform just a year ago, he sounded ready and...

Ryan Lavarnway Improved 'An Awful Lot' Defensively, Looks to Regain Stride at Plate

Ryan Lavarnway is close to completing his first full season as an everyday catcher. Entering spring training, the 25-year-old's defensive skills were a major question mark. When asked about Lavarnway's development, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine noticed progress, but admitted there is room for improvement. "I think he needs work, but from what I gather, he's improved...

Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia Absent From Red Sox Lineup in Series Opener With Yankees

The Baltimore Orioles aren't going to like what they see when they look at the Red Sox' lineup for Monday night's series opener with the Yankees. Boston opens its final series of this forgettable year by sitting both Dustin Pedroia and Jacoby Ellsbury, the two best offensive players the Red Sox have on their active roster right now. It's a move that may irk the O...

Felix Doubront pitched the final game of his rookie season on Saturday night and the Boston Red Sox lost to the Baltimore Orioles 4-3.

Orioles Beat Down Red Sox Via Long Ball on One Year Anniversary of Game 162 Loss

Editor's note: NESN.com is going to tell the story of the 2012 Red Sox in Bobby Valentine's words. Each game day, we will select a Valentine quote that sums up the day for the Red Sox. One year later, the divide between the Orioles and Red Sox is massive. On this date last year, Baltimore capped Boston's September collapse by defeating them in a one-run game. This time...

Monday Red Sox Travesty - 10/1

Red Sox Send Unusual Suspects into Lineup for Opener Against Yankees (Video)

At least Pedro Ciriaco is in the starting nine. In their final series of 2012, the Red Sox rolled out a lineup that looks nothing like anyone would have predicted back in April. As the Yankees send CC Sabathia to the hill, he won't be facing the likes of Dustin Pedroia or Jacoby Ellsbury. Instead, the big lefty will oppose Mauro Gomez, Danny Valencia and Ryan Lavarnway as the...

Red Sox News & Notes - 9/29

The one problem with pitchers who throw a sinker is that when the pitch doesn't sink, it usually ends up being a long night for them and their team. And that's exactly what happened last night for Aaron Cook and the Boston Red Sox. The Baltimore Orioles continued their magical run as they got six runs in the first inning on their way to a 9-1 win over the visiting team...

Red Sox Live Blog: Felix Doubront Looks to End Season in Spoiler Style as Boston Takes on Baltimore

8 a.m. ET: It's been a long, long season for the Boston Red Sox, but, perhaps mercifully, it's finally winding down. But that being said, the Sox have five more games to go in the season, and they could yet play a major role in determining how the AL East unfolds. Entering play Saturday, the Baltimore Orioles find themselves just a single game back of the Yankees for division...

Pedro Ciriaco Will Need to Take Yankee Killer Reputation to Next Level to Knock New York Out of First Place (Video)

As CC Sabathia takes the mound for the Yankees on Monday night, he might be understandably licking his chops at the prospect of facing this Red Sox lineup. Without the likes of Jacoby Ellsbury or Dustin Pedroia batting for Boston, Sabathia will instead get a chance to face a Red Sox lineup that is a bit, shall we say, lacking in star power. However, there is one possible fly in Sabathia...
