Boston Red Sox
The streets of Boston are still soaked with champagne, and the hangover is probably still subsiding for many jacked-up Red Sox fans. There’s no rest for the weary, though, and those within the organization are already looking toward next season.
General manager Ben Cherington and manager John Farrell answered questions at Fenway Park on Monday pertaining to the offseason. The club’s exact offseason plans are, of course, still being formulated just days removed from Boston’s World Series victory, but the duo’s responses did offer some clarification on certain topics.
The Red Sox extended qualifying offers to Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli and Stephen Drew on Monday, with Cherington noting that he has an interest in re-signing all three of those free agents plus Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Cherington also said that it’s unlikely all will return for 2014 based on the nature of the business.
Most of the Red Sox’ championship-winning squad is expected to return next season, so this offseason mi...

All good things must come to an end, and it’s the end of the line for some famous Red Sox beards. David Ortiz and Shane Victorino went under the razor on Monday at the Gillette World Headquarters in South Boston to shear off the iconic facial hair that fans had grown to love all season. The two teamed up with bullpen cop Steve Horgan and shaved their beards to support the Movember...
It took them months to grow...and mere minutes to shave off.
Monday, in front of a standing room only crowd at Gillette World Shaving Headquarters, Boston Red Sox stars David Ortiz and Shane Victorino lost their beards. Also on hand getting his chin curtain clipped...Boston Police Officer Steve Horgan. You know, the bullpen cop who was immortalized when Detroit Tigers outfielder...
Well, it looks like a couple the bearded ones are shaving them off for the good of charity.
Earlier this morning, Shane Victorino and David Ortiz, along with newly famous bullpen cop Steve Horgan went down to the Gillette Headquarters for a championship victory shave dedicated to One Fund Boston. Gillette also made a $100,000dollar donation during this mornings shave ceremony...
World Series MVP David Ortiz and Boston Red Sox teammate Shane Victorino had their beards shaved for charity Monday to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombings in April.
The "shave offs" occurred at Gillette's world headquarters. The Boston company donated $100,000 to the One Fund, which is assisting victims and their families of the bombings on April 15. Three...
A clean-shaven Shane Victorino and a still-bearded Jonny Gomes appeared on Conan last night as part of the World Series victory circuit.
Jonny being the goofball he is, says some pretty funny things about the ceremonial beard tugging and how Mike Napoli wouldn't ever let him tug him back...seems like a double standard to me.
Then Conan brings up the topic we&...
You've been warned, gang...the Boston Red Sox are everywhere.
While David Ortiz was busy hitting "Late Show" and "LIVE! with Kelly and Michael"...the more colorful Shane Victorino and Jonny Gomes appeared on "Conan" Tuesday night and talked, naturally, about that World Series win, beards and teammate Jake Peavy buying a Duck Boat.
The beards came off for Shane Victorino and David Ortiz today—plus famous bullpen cop Steve Horgan—but it was for charity to benefit the One Fund. Here are some fun before and after shots of the day and you have to admit, they all do look a little sharper after going under the razor.
You gotta love that Papi keeps his sunglasses on the entire time...
Boston Red Sox outfielders Shane Victorino and Jonny Gomes were on Conan last night to bask in their recent World Series victory. Joining them on the furniture after their segment was notorious funnyman and die hard Yankees fan Artie Lange. Awkward? Not at all.
Lange immediately killed the tension by complimenting the Red Sox and then ranting about the one thing Boston and New York...
The Red Sox’ bullpen at one point looked like a potential area of weakness. Then came the playoffs.
While not perfect, the bridge to Koji Uehara was certainly stable during the 2013 postseason. Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington would like to maintain that stability in 2014. According to Cherington, the Red Sox will look to add to their bullpen mix this offseason.
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.
Even after 108 wins, general manager Ben Cherington barely had a moment to bask in the glory. The offseason work begins with today’s 5 p.m. deadline to tender $14.1-million qualifying offers to free agents...
BOSTON — In an ideal world, the Red Sox would re-sign Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, Stephen Drew and Jarrod Saltalamacchia this offseason. Unfortunately for Boston, we don’t exactly live in an ideal world.
Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Monday that the club has interest in re-signing all four of its free agents who played a major role in Boston winning the World...
Winter is officially here. In baseball terms, at least.
When Koji Uehara struck out Matt Carpenter to end the 2013 season and give the Red Sox – including former Phillie Shane Victorino – the World Series title, teams across the league officially started the offseason. Free agents were able to discuss freely with teams last week. They can begin signing contracts today.
Pawtucket Red Sox manager Gary DiSarcina has been hired by the Los Angeles Angels as their third base coach.
DiSarcina might have stayed in the Red Sox organization had a position opened up on the major league staff. But general manager Ben Cherington said Monday he expected all of the coaches to return.
Bench coach Torey Lovullo was seen as a candidate to manage, but Cherington...

Ben Cherington said Monday that starting pitching appears to be an area of strength and depth for the Red Sox. That doesn’t mean that the Boston won’t still see what’s out there this winter.
According to David O’Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Red Sox are among eight teams who have contacted free-agent pitcher Tim Hudson. O’Brien reports that the Giants,...
