8 a.m. ET: For the first time since the 2007 World Series, the Colorado Rockies will take the field at Fenway Park on Tuesday. The Red Sox have met the Rockies just once since sweeping them to win their most recent championship — a three-game series at Coors Field in 2010 — and outside of two-time All-Star Troy Tulowitzki and longtime Minnesota Twin Michael Cuddyer, much of the Colorado roster will likely be unfamiliar to casual Red Sox fans. The Fenway Faithful will not have a chance to see Tulowitzki, who is out with a broken rib, but they will become acquainted with Carlos Gonzalez — the other half of the Rockies’ formidable 3-4 punch in the middle of the order. Gonzalez leads the National League with 21 home runs and ranks fourth in RBIs with 57. Starting for the Rockies on the mound will be 26-year-old Juan Nicasio (4-3, 4.78 ERA), who comes in searching for his first win since May 19. Boston counters with Ryan Dempster (4-8, 4.23 ERA). Dempster has allowed three runs or fewer ...

Buchholz Has Setback During Bullpen, Gets MRI

Buchholz Tuesday (FN Photo)More bad news about the best starting pitcher on the Red Sox.

Your Morning Dump...where Farrell has a funny idea of rebuilding Bailey's confidence

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.

After blowing three saves in a 10-day span, Bailey was displaced from the Red Sox’ closer role last Friday, at which time manager John Farrell admitted...
