The Boston Red Sox were in the holiday spirit when they took the field against the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday. The Sox were wearing their green uniforms during their split squad games in honor of St. Patrick's Day. The green uniforms helped the Sox, as they won one of their games, 7-4, while tying the other, 3-3. Perhaps if the Sox struggle during the course of the regular season, they can toss on the green unis and hope for a little Luck of the Irish as they try and win another World Series championship.

Red Sox Band – Lansdowne and the Streets

Adam Jones thinks Kevin Youkilis’ injury was big reason for September collapse

The Red Sox’s spectacular September collapse last season just isn’t going to go away, and this time it’s Orioles outfielder Adam Jones giving his two cents.
