Found February 13, 2013 on RedSoxLife:
PLAYERS: Ryan Kalish
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
If there’s one thing both Ryan Kalish and I can agree on it’s the realization that we’re both tired of talking about his injuries. The 24-year old has fallen on hard times as of late in regards to his current injury predicament. Call it the post-surgical blues or perhaps a lack of Vitamin D intake, but the fact remains that his current streak of bad luck is finally weighing on him. Kalish arrived at the Ft. Myers facility on Wednesday, but with a prognosis of 4-6 month the young outfielder will play the part of a glorified cheerleader until his return. Ryan finally spoke to the media Wednesday afternoon discussing both the frustration of another injury setback this off-season and how he’s been coping with it. "Well, I mean, honestly I've been really down," Ryan said. "I disappeared. I know I didn't talk to some of you guys and I apologize, but it's just been really tough for me. I really just want to play again, whatever level. Obviously I want to p...

David Ortiz pins a lot of the Red Sox’s 2012 woes on Bobby Valentine

Bobby Valentine was a dead man walking the day the Boston Red Sox announced he would be their next manager last winter. Not only was he the wrong man for the job, but I highly doubt anyone would have been able to clean up Boston’s mess and lead a playoff charge. The Red Sox won only 69 games and finished in last in the AL East, and David Ortiz feels that Valentine was one of the...

Clay Buchholz injures hamstring to kick off spring training

Sorry about the pic of J.D. Drew. It is just instinct to post a photo of Drew when I hear of a hamstring injury. I have to shake that old habit. It seems as if the luck of the Celtics has already rubbed off on the Red Sox, as Clay Buchholz injured his right hamstring on the first day of pitching workouts. Farrell said the team will know more Wednesday but added, “it was enough...

Report: Lyle Overbay Has Discussed Possibility of Playing Some Outfield With Red Sox

Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Lyle Overbay, a 36-year-old veteran of 12 major league seasons, has never played a position on the diamond other than first base in his big league career. It appears he has at least talked about changing that in 2013. Overbay has discussed with the Red Sox the possibility of playing some outfield, according to The Boston Globe’s...

Jose Iglesias Views 2012 as Great Learning Experience, Says He Had ‘Best Offseason of My Life’

The hype surrounding Jose Iglesias has died down a bit, but the young shortstop’s confidence is as high as ever. Iglesias said that he is entering spring training on the heels of the best offseason of his life, according to ESPN.com’s Joe McDonald. Iglesias won’t start the season as Boston’s everyday shortstop now that Stephen Drew is in the mix, but 23-year-old is excited...

Clay Buchholz’s Hamstring, Daniel Bard’s Rebound Attempt Among Top 10 Red Sox Spring Training Storylines (Photos)

Spring training is officially under way, and the Red Sox are one of the more interesting teams to watch. There’s no telling whether this season will yield better results for the Sox. There are still a lot of questions, and after a 69-93 campaign, there are plenty of reasons to be skeptical. One thing that’s certain, however, is that this season’s Red Sox team looks significantly...

Jose Iglesias has 'Best offseason of my life'

Throughout some of the recent talk of major expectations from Red Sox minor league prospects, former top-prospect Jose Iglesias flew under the radar. With acquired SS Stephen Drew expected to start, Xander Bogaerts and Devon Marrero are also considered to be candidates for the position in the future. The Sox seem to be all set with the position for the years to come, but it is...

The good news is that it doesn't appear to be that bad and he should only...

Dustin Pedroia Doesn’t Blame Bobby Valentine for Red Sox’ Struggles in 2012 (Video)

After Bobby Valentine questioned Kevin Youkilis‘ dedication last season, Dustin Pedroia was the first player to publicly defend his former teammate. But just because Pedroia may not have agreed with everything Valentine did last season doesn’t mean he blames the former manager for the Red Sox’ last place finish in 2012. Pedroia spoke about the differences between John Farrell...

David Ortiz Says Players Weren’t Comfortable With Bobby Valentine, Considers John Farrell’s Hiring a ‘Fresh Start’

Last season was a disaster for the Red Sox, and manager Bobby Valentine became the symbol of Boston’s struggles. Count David Ortiz among those ready for a fresh start with John Farrell in charge. Ortiz spoke to reporters on Tuesday about the transition from Valentine to Farrell. The Red Sox slugger, who actually defended Valentine throughout last season, finally came clean and...

John Farrell on John Lackey's status in spring training

One big question mark coming into spring training this season was the health of John Lackey. Lackey had Tommy John surgery in 2011 during the off-season which landed him on the disabled list the entire 2012 season. Now Lackey is back and ready to kick start his career by providing the Red Sox with some much needed depth in the starting rotation.    It’s not surprising that...

John Farrell Says Red Sox Need to Earn Trust in One Another This Season (Video)

New Red Sox manager John Farrell will field a very different team this season than the Boston squad that stumbled through a disappointing campaign in 2012. While he wants his players to learn from last year’s struggles, the new Sox boss stresses the importance of players earning trust in one another and fans regaining trust in the franchise. “Certainly we can’t wipe away what’s...
