Found September 23, 2012 on Philliedelphia:
Cody Ross.  The one who once pitched an inning against the Phillies as a Marlin and the one who once killed the Phillies in the National League Championship Series back in 2010.  Could Ross goe from foe to friend?   National Baseball Writer Nick Carfardo of the Boston Globe is reporting that the Phillies and Yankees both are "very interested" in right-handed outfielder Cody Ross.  Of course, the Phillies cannot make that known publicly because Ross is a member of the Boston Red Sox and to make such a statement would be tampering. Ross might have made good sense for the Phillies in 2012, but the Phillies decided to give John Mayberry Jr. first crack at left field.  The right-handed hitting Ross is hitting .268 with 21 home runs and 76 RBI for the Red Sox.

Taking Stock: Orioles - Red Sox series

After every series, we'll take stock of how each individual and group performance affects their overall value. Lineup Pedro Ciriaco: Pedro did well at the plate in 2 out of 3 games, which is an improvement of his 1 out of 4 against the Rays.

Like Red Sox, Ortiz looking ahead to offseason

David Ortiz has been through a lot in nearly a decade with the Red Sox. He's earned two World Series rings and owns the club record for homers in a season. He suffered through a monumental September collapse last year, and has been sidelined with a strained right Achilles as the team faded out of the playoff picture this season. This winter, he'll likely experience something...

James Loney’s Prime Decline

If the Red Sox have been one of the most disappointing teams in baseball this year, then waiver trade import James Loney has been one of its most disappointing and frustrating players.

He tallied 2.4 WAR last year in the best season of his career, and while his numbers weren’t all that impressive when placed...

Doubront fans 11 to extend late-season surge

Tired? Who said Felix Doubront was tired? Despite having soared beyond his career-high total for innings in a season, and despite struggling badly for seven starts after the All-Star break, Doubront remained in the Boston Red Sox's rotation and tossed his third consecutive gem Sunday.

Red Sox News & Notes - 9/24

Four starts ago, the talk around the Boston Red Sox was that Felix Doubront could be shut down for the rest of the season. After all, he'd never thrown this many innings or pitches in a season. Doubront fought for himself and told them he'd be fine. They should be glad he did. Yesterday afternoon in his final Fenway Park of the season, Doubront put together a gem as...

Your Morning Dump...where Pesky finally got the tribute he deserved.

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.

Danny Valencia, Jose Iglesias, Felix Doubront on Tap as Red Sox Turn to Youth to Stave Off Orioles

The Orioles knew they would have a pretty good chance Saturday if they could force their matinee against the Red Sox into extra innings. Boston hasn't been so great past the ninth inning this year, while the O's have now won 16 in a row in extras.

Orioles miss chance to tie for first by losing to Red Sox

BOSTON - Almost any contending team would take a 6-3 September road trip that starts on the West Coast and ends in Boston. But the Orioles lamented that a chance to go 7-2 and go back into a tie for first place slipped through their fingers at Fenway Park Sunday. The 2-1 loss to the out-of-the-money Red Sox cost the Birds a chance to catch the Yankees for the American League East...
