MLB Injury News:
The Boston Red Sox were hoping right-handed starting pitcher
Clay Buchholz could avoid a stint on the disabled list, as the team pushed the
ace back a few times to allow him additional rest. Boston needs a starter for
Saturday, and manager John Farrell told Michael Periatt of MLB.com that the
club didn’t want to rush Buchholz back.
"We needed the starter on Saturday," manager John
Farrell said. "[We] didn't feel like we had enough time to get him the
proper amount of work to prepare for that start. Didn't want to take any
The Red Sox have been treating Buchholz with kid gloves
since the discomfort began. They didn’t want to worsen the injury by rushing
him back to the rotation, so he was pushed back a few times last week and this
Because he hasn’t pitched for a while, Buchholz is eligible
to return from the DL on June 25, next Tuesday. The decision to give him
additional time to rest his sore neck was determined after he threw a bullpen
session between the team’s double-header yesterday.
Boston can only hope that this won’t be an extended absence
for Buchholz, as he was 9-0 with a 1.73 ERA prior to the injury.
The Red Sox recalled Ryan Lavarnway to replace Buchholz on
the roster. Allen Webster is most likely to start in his place, according to Periatt.

The Red Sox are going for a sweep the night after a walk-off home run that included a helmet punt. Also, they’re second fiddles in Boston.
It’s a tough time to be a fan of Boston sports for those who only have access to one television at a time, as the Bruins fight on in the Stanley Cup Final and leave the first-place Sox on somewhat of a back burner. That’s not to say that...
It was a long day that included 18 innings of baseball for the Red Sox. However, when Jonny Gomes launched one over the Green Monster to give Boston its second win of the day, no one remembered how tired were.
After the game, the Red Sox posted the below picture to Instagram, and it’s pretty amazing. The image captures the Red Sox bench watching Gomes’ home run clear the fence...
Andrew Bailey is the Red Sox’ closer.
Bailey, who blew another save opportunity in the second game of Tuesday’s doubleheader, is in the midst of a rough patch. Manager John Farrell made it clear, however, that the closer’s job still belongs to Bailey, and that it’s simply a matter of the right-hander figuring some things out on the mound.
“Andrew Bailey is our closer, and...
The Red Sox’ Johnny Gomes hit a walk-off home run during the second game of their doubleheader against the Rays on Tuesday, but it was the celebration which deserved the real praise. Check Johnny doing a little leg kick and what not with his helmet being the football. Any NFL teams still looking for a punter for this upcoming season?

Going, going, GOMES!
After reputed closer Andrew Bailey squelched a stellar start by Felix Doubront by giving up a game-tying run in the top of the ninth, Jonny Gomes all but hoisted Bailey on his back and carried him around the bases when he launched a shot in the bottom...
In what was a very quick three game homestand against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Boston Red Sox took two out of three from them including sweeping the day/night doubleheader on Tuesday. By sweeping the doubleheader, it marked the first time the Red Sox swept a doubleheader at Fenway Park since beating the Oakland Athletics on August 27, 2011. Despite falling 6-2 to the Rays on Wednesday...
I don’t normally do this, but it’s time for a little story time with Davo.
I was driving back from Connecticut, listening to Dave O’Brien call the game on the radio. Andrew Bailey had just given up the game-tying home run to Kelly Johnson.
After Daniel Nava walks, my gut starts to get a strange feeling as O’Brien announces Jonny Gomes‘s name. Do you ever have those? Like...

Jacoby Ellsbury is finally back to the player that we know and love. So what's that mean? Well, if you're a fan of another team, that means trouble. If you're a Red Sox fan (at least if you're like me), you're thinking "Yeah, playoffs here we come!" Having Jacoby as a leadoff guy means trouble for opposition because you...

If you had to choose a closer right now, replacing Andrew Bailey, what would you do?
We have seen the lack of focus.
Have we reached Closerpocalypse yet, suggesting it is time to put the 9th inning into the hands of Andrew Miller?
It seems that Koji Uehara might be the guy to lean on, or is he?
Luckily the General Manager has the closer issue...
