Sox will call up Iglesias and Lin in preparation of trade

As time passes, the less likely it is that the Sox will not walk away from this deal. In fact, Tom Werner wants this thing done very soon. To fill roster spots that will be available as a result of the trade, the Sox will call up Jose Iglesias, and outfielder, Che-Hsuan Lin. CSNNE: In anticipation of their megadeal with the Dodgers being finalized today, the Red Sox have summoned...

Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett Trade Is Statement of Its Own for Red Sox, No Matter the Results

The sentiment for the 2012 Red Sox (and really, the end-of-2011 Red Sox as well) was never that this team lacked the pieces to win. From proven bats to fiery starters, Boston was loaded with talent, and it had young help waiting to come up, too. The problem throughout the much-maligned last September, creeping into this year and dragging the team down hard as the summer went on,...

Adrian Gonzalez Tweets Thanks to Red Sox Fans as Dodgers Trade Nears Completion

Nick Punto was the first to tip his cap to Boston and its fans. Now Adrian Gonzalez is joining him. Punto and Gonzalez, two pieces of a giant trade that is also sending Josh Beckett and Carl Crawford to the Dodgers, both bid farewell to Boston on Saturday as reports swirled that their trade to the Dodgers had been completed and they were already flying to Los Angeles. Gonzalez tweeted...

Red Sox Add Pair of 98 MPH Men

Having seen the Greenville Drive on multiple occasions in each of the past four seasons, I’ve grown familiar with much of the Red Sox organization at the minor league level. A current weakness is pitching, and this was addressed over the weekend when the Red Sox added two promising young hurlers I’ve scouted on multiple occasions in Rubby de la Rosa and Allen Webster. And while...

David Ortiz Opts for PRP Treatment Over Surgery in Hopes of Returning This Season

BOSTON -- Another injection will be needed to save David Ortiz's season. After missing the past three games with Achilles soreness, the Red Sox designated hitter will receive a platelet-rich plasma injection to relieve the discomfort and return to the diamond. In the meantime, the Red Sox placed Ortiz back on the 15-day disabled list. Ortiz will be prohibited from flying right...

Mark Melancon Buoyed by First Save of Season After Rocky Start With Red Sox

Mark Melancon hadn't had a save opportunity in five months. On April 8, Melancon was an option to fill the ninth-inning void, but he imploded against the Tigers and allowed three runs in 2/3 of an inning. He was demoted to Triple-A soon after to fix his mechanics. That's what made Sunday's save in the Red Sox' 8-6 win over the Royals so sweet. With Alfredo Aceves...

Video: Mauro Gomez Hits First Career MLB Home Run

Mauro Gomez has been called up three different times to the Boston Red Sox this year. In his first two stints, he hadn't hit a home run. Well now in his third cup of coffee with the local nine, Gomez can now say that he has hit a home run in the big leagues as he hit a solo homer off Kansas City Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie in the 2nd inning of Saturday night's game....

Recap: Sox hold on to beat Royals, 8-6

The Sox almost blew it again, but they held for an ugly win on this time to set up a chance for a series win.  The Sox jumped out to an early 2-0 lead after getting single runs in the 1st and 2nd, by way of a Ross single and Aviles double respectively. Doubront had a fairly easy time in until the 4th, when he was tagged for 4 runs. Doubront came out for a score-less 5th and that...

Red Sox manager Valentine ejected argument at 1B

Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine was ejected from Sunday's game against the Kansas City Royals for arguing a call at first base. Dustin Pedroia hit a grounder that Royals third baseman Tony Abreu bobbled before throwing to first. Replays showed that Pedroia beat the throw, but first base umpire Dan Bellino called him out. Valentine was out of the dugout quickly, arguing...

Sox Get A Win Amid Trade Talk

While everyone was talking about the blockbuster trade and if and when it was going to happen, the Red Sox took the mound and actually ended their losing streak.  Jon Lester took the mound for the Sox and there was the much needed return of David Ortiz.   Lester took the mound and hoped to build on his last few outings.  Lester was given a couple of runs in the bottom of the...

Yankeetorial: And so we close the book on the great Yankee-Boston rivalry of the early New Millenium (and Lackey cries, what about me?)

Oh, well... so much for the Greatest Team Evah.I feel like the mutt reporter in the final moments of "King Kong." A kid points to the gorilla on the sidewalk, and I say, "It wasn't them planes that killed the beast. T'was beauty that killed the beast." No, I'm not saying Carl Crawford is pretty.The word is hubris, folks. Hubris. Whenever the dictator...

Bobby Valentine's Fifth-Inning Ejection Helps to Spark Red Sox over Royals

BOSTON -- For the fifth time this season, Bobby Valentine was ejected. But unlike the other expulsions, this one was different. When first base umpire Dan Bellino tossed Valentine in the fifth inning of Sunday's 8-6 Red Sox win, the skipper walked off to a rousing standing ovation. Valentine believed Dustin Pedroia -- who was ruled out after hitting a hard grounder to Royals...
