Kevin Youkilis got off to a slow start to the 2012 season. But just when the All-Star third baseman was finally finding his groove, a nagging back injury cropped up. Youkilis has now missed the past two games for the Red Sox, and if the injury lingers it could very well be time to callup prized prospect Will Middlebrooks for a stint with the big club. Nick Cafardo and Tom Caron discussed...
Daniel Bard's role with the Red Sox has been heavily debated since the decision was made to put him in the starting rotation. The right-hander proved this week that he can excel no matter when and how he's used. Following Sunday's rainout, manager Bobby Valentine elected to skip Bard's next start. Instead, the Sox skipper called upon the big righty out of the bullpen...
If you were looking for the awesome mascot video of the week, we have it for you as Boston Red Sox's mascot rocking out by playing some drums.

Things got a little dicey late on Monday night for the Red Sox, but thanks to Dustin Pedroia's clutch double play to end the seventh, they didn't spiral out of control. The Sox hung on to win 11-6 and beat the Oakland Athletics, powered by David Ortiz's two home runs and some defensive gems from the infielders, notably Pedroia. For his defensive heroics, NESN Nation&...
Clay Buchholz is off to a horrid start in the early goings of his 2012 season. He does have 2 wins but his ERA sits at 8.87 and his WHIP is a disgusting 1.93. After his last start against the Minnesota Twins there were reports that he looked much better, but in all honesty, besides some sharper movement on his breaking stuff I thought it was another weak effort. If Buchholz were...
The Boston Red Sox are currently playing their best baseball of the season, entering Sunday's game with a six-game winning streak. But win or lose, the Sox are always ready to spend time with fans, and they'll be fielding the tough questions before Sunday's series finale against the White Sox. And who is more qualified to interview Red Sox players than the Parkway National...
BOSTON -- David Ortiz homered twice and the Boston Red Sox returned to .500 with an 11-6 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Monday night. Darnell McDonald and Mike Aviles also homered for Boston, and Clay Buchholz (3-1) pitched six solid innings before a minor collapse in the seventh allowed Oakland to get back into it. The Red Sox won for the seventh time in eight games...
When the Boston Red Sox started this seven game road trip, their record sat at 4-10 and things were looking bleak. Not a lot was going well.
But things are different just seven days later.
After Jon Lester and the bullpen outdueled Jake Peavy last night, the Red Sox have won six straight games and now find themselves at .500 a lot earlier than some of the pundits said they...
Gavin Floyd carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning, Adam Dunn hit a two-run homer and the Chicago White Sox beat the Boston Red Sox 4-1 on Sunday.
Floyd (2-3) struck out nine in 6 1-3 innings, yielding one run and three hits. He improved to 7-0 with a 3.21 ERA in nine career appearances against Boston, helping the White Sox stop a five-game losing streak.

Jon Lester and Jake Peavy went toe-to-toe tonight and when the dust settled, the Red Sox held on for the 1-0 victory for their 6th straight win.
If you enjoy pitching duels, this game was tailor-made for you. The White Sox' Jake Peavy, who's having a tremendous season...
After picking up their fifth straight win last night, the Boston Red Sox will go for their third straight win over the Chicago White Sox in game three of a four-game set at U.S. Cellular Field on the south side of the Windy City.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the White Sox television...
The Sox head back home to Fenway for a three games series with Oakland beginning tonight. Despite yesterday’s 4-1 loss in Chicago, Boston is coming off a very successful road trip. They won the first 6 games in Minnesota and Chicago, getting their record back to .500 (10-10 before Sunday’s defeat) while tempering a [...]
Jon Lester returned to vintage form Saturday night, and Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine was happy to note what gave the starting pitcher his success. "He gave up exactly the right number of runs tonight," Valentine said of the 1-0 victory. Valentine tells Jenny Dell what was best about Lester’s start as well as what has happened to get the Red Sox offense to come around.
Chapter 2: Escape from Reality
Just like a rousing happy hour after a tough day at work or a Kardashian marathon after a bad breakup, everyone needs a little escape from reality when things aren’t going particularly well.
In the case of the Yankee blogger’s escape from reality, I’m choosing not to discuss the fact that we have some serious starting pitching issues. I’d rather...
As uplifting as Wednesday’s 14-inning, comeback win over the Chicago White Sox was, Sunday’s 5-2 loss to Baltimore in the bottom of ninth inning was the counterweight to offset that momentum for the Oakland A's.
