8 a.m. ET: The Red Sox (34-33) have returned to their winning ways above .500. They'll look to maintain that momentum when Felix Doubront takes the mound against the Marlins (33-34) just one week after beating them. Last time around, Doubront dazzled, giving up two runs over seven innings. This time, Doubront owns a 7-3 record with a 4.17 ERA entering the game. The lefty will go up against Marlins pitcher Ricky Nolasco, who is 6-5 with a 4.37 ERA. Nolasco took the loss his last time versus the Red Sox, yielding four runs in six innings while walking one...
BEST OF MAXIM
BOSTON -- Carl Crawford knows he has been a non factor for the Red Sox so far this season. But the All-Star left fielder is determined to change that reality. Crawford took about 50 swings during batting practice on Tuesday, impressing with his bat speed and solid stroke. The 30-year-old blasted a few pitches off the Green Monster in left field and even sent one into the deepest...
Jon Lester is not only an all star on the field, but off the field as well with his charitable work. Lester has been involved with The Jimmy Fund as well as his own personal charities. Last year Lester was a part of the Charity Wines selling the CabernAce to support the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center where Lester received treatment himself.
This year Lester has been...
The Red Sox are officially out of the basement! Big Papi is on the best stuff money can buy and just absolutely mashing the ball. Mike Aviles is the best shortstop since Nomar. Felix Doubront is one of the most consistent pitchers in the league. The offense has finally woken up. The Yankees and Orioles are in the beginning stages of what are hopefully terrible losing streaks. Jacoby...
Things were problematic enough for the Boston Red Sox with injuries this season, and now they may have to worry about Dustin Pedroia again. The second baseman re-injured his right thumb Tuesday for the second time in three weeks and was taken out of the game after his at-bat in the seventh inning. Pedroia was not available to talk with the media after Boston's 7-5 win over...
With all the Red Sox talk about who's not on the field -- namely, the team's entire projected starting outfield -- it's gone a little bit unnoticed that the guys who are filling out the lineup card on a daily basis are doing pretty darn well for themselves. Coming in to Tuesday's series opener at Fenway hosting the Miami Marlins, the offense is one thing that Sox...
Dustin Pedroia came out of Tuesday night's game with the Marlins after reaggravating his thumb injury. It appears that for one night at least, the Red Sox second baseman will rest that thumb. Pedroia isn't in the Boston starting lineup on Wednesday night as the Red Sox take on the Marlins at Fenway Park in what's expected to be a sultry June night in Boston. Pedroia,...
BOSTON -- By electing to battle through the pain, Dustin Pedroia gambled. The second baseman took a chance on playing through a torn adductor muscle in his right thumb, hoping he wouldn't re-aggravate the injury –– or worsen it –– after missing six games. That decision may possibly haunt him. During the seventh inning of Tuesday's 7-5 win over the Marlins, Pedroia...
Clay Buchholz didn't have his best game, however he got enough run support to have the Sox still go back one game over 500 by beating the Marlins. Let's hope it stays that way and only gets better from here. The Sox won with a barrage of 3 HRs.
Clay Buchholz said he didn't want to pitch on Sunday because he wanted the extra rest. It doesn't look like it did...
They say baseball is a game of adjustments -- or, as Clay Buchholz refers to them, "mind games." After having faced the Miami Marlins his last trip to the mound, and facing down a second-straight start against the Fish, the temptation, Buchholz says, is to perhaps out-think yourself and start worrying and changing the way you prepare, and what your pitch sequences might...

It’s happening again. As we near the halfway point in the 2012 season, the Red Sox have picked up right where they left off last September. Injuries have certainly played a part, but at the moment Boston is a mediocre team at best as it hovers around a .500 record. In addition to a poor performance on the field, Buster Olney described the Red Sox clubhouse as a “toxic” environment...

BOSTON – Last week in Miami, the Marlins beat the Red Sox in the first of six inter-league games to be played between the teams in 11 days. Wednesday night in Boston, the Sox beat Miami for the fourth straight time since, hammering the slumping Marlins 15-5. David Ortiz, hitting his third home run in as many games (No. 19 on the season), drilled a grand slam during a six-run...

Things are not looking up for the Boston Red Sox at the moment, as they are in 4th place in the AL East and only one win above the Toronto Blue Jays. Let’s take a look at the way things are stacking up in the American League and see who is currently leading the pack. Can the Sax catch up, or is time running out?
