While we didn't get a chance to talk about the outing of Clay Buchholz on Friday night because of the site transfer issues, we did use our time to watch most of the game between the Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday afternoon.
And while that game was going on, another squad from the Red Sox was in Jupiter talking on the Miami Marlins. Now what makes that interesting is not the incident when Bobby Valentine waved goodbye to Ozzie Guillen after he was ejected, it's the fact that Felix Doubront was trying to state his case for one of the final spots in the rotation. Of course Alfredo Aceves was trying to do the same thing back in Ft. Myers.
If you had to pick a winner for the day, you would have to say it was Doubront. While Aceves was getting shelled by the Phillies, Doubront was dominating the Marlins.
Aceves gave up nine runs on 10 hits and a walk while striking out three in just three innings of work. Three of those 10 hits were home runs includin...

Did you really think you would go a full 24 hours without hearing about the #5 spot in the rotation? One year ago, he was on the opening day roster for the Pawtucket Red Sox and had no idea what the hell his role would be with Boston. This year, he is the front-runner for the final spot in the rotation.
Bogar expects six innings from Alfredo Aceves, who appears to have a leg up...
FORT MYERS, Fla. –– Alfredo Aceves has been a model of consistency. Through his four years in the majors, he's assembled a 24-3 record, the highest winning percentage for a player in baseball history. That reputation made his outing Saturday tougher to grasp. In arguably the most important start of the spring –– that had implications for the starting rotation –– Aceves...

New NESN Red Sox sideline reporter Jenny Dell made her much-anticipated debut on Saturday, joining Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy in the NESN booth. Dell discussed her background and explained how she arrived at her "dream job." She also discussed what's on tap for this season, which should be a special one for her, the Red Sox and NESN. Check out the video above to see...
Perhaps you have seen this story this morning where Bobby Jenks, the injured pitcher of the Boston Red Sox, was charged with five misdemeanors including DUI and leaving the scene of an accident that involved property damage. There should be little tolerance for this kind of thing. Sure, we can all say that young men with lots of money will make mistakes. But it's not like these...

Before fine tuning the "Fanfare for Fenway" track for the 100th anniversary of the Red Sox' beloved ballpark in 2012, John Williams was composing multiple songs for other things -- most notably movies. Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter and Jaws were just a few of his best soundtracks, but there are plenty more movies he has composed tracks for. Williams' "...
FORT MYERS, Fla. –– First, Jason Varitek retired. Then, earlier this week, Braves third baseman Chipper Jones announced his retirement, effective following the 2012 season. In a span of weeks, two of Jarrod Saltalamacchia's mentors have closed the books on their illustrious careers. Considering Jones advised him as a rookie in the Atlanta organization, that retirement announcement...
Although it’s Spring Training, this lack of offense is getting scary. I don’t know if there is something in the water down in Clearwater, but the Phillies just are not hitting the ball very well lately.They put up another donut against the Boston Red Sox on Monday afternoon, being shut down by Jon Lester, 6-0. The Phillies managed just three hits on the day; one from Freddy...
