Found July 31, 2012 on Ted's Army:

The Red Sox got in one more trade before the deadline, as they send Lars Anderson to the Indians for an un-named minor league pitcher. 

Lars Anderson has made 30 major league appearances with the Red Sox since 2010, accumulating a .167 batting average (8/48), with a double and 4 RBI coming in 2010. 

The Pawsox first-baseman had very little hope for any long-term commitment since the acquisition of Adrian Gonzalez. Trading Anderson has always been an inevitability, the Sox we just banking on some build up of trade value over the years that they never got. 

Nothing like capping off the trade deadline day with anything but a bang. We were warned it would be un-eventful. 


Sox looked to deal Beckett, Ellsbury, and Shoppach to Rangers

The trade deadline ended without a bang from the Red Sox. The biggest deal of the day for the Sox was the acquisition of Craig Breslow for Albers and Podsednik. We all waited for something to happen with Josh Beckett and a lot of us were bummed to find out he would be on this team for the foreseeable future. This morning, WEEI's Rob Bradford wrote that the Red Sox looked to deal...

Beckett leaves game with injury

Josh Beckett has left the Boston Red Sox game in the third inning with an apparent lower back injury. Beckett motioned for the trainer to come to the mound after walking Miguel Cabrera to force in the first run Tuesday night against the Detroit Tigers. His lower left back was checked and Beckett walked slowly off the mound. He was replaced with two outs by Clayton Mortensen, who...

Red Sox OF Sweeney punches door, hurts hand

Red Sox outfielder Ryan Sweeney hurt his left hand after punching a door and had to leave the Boston's victory over Detroit in the ninth inning Monday night. Manager Bobby Valentine said after the game that Sweeney was taken out for a defensive replacement because he had done something to his hand in his last at-bat and couldn't throw. Sweeney, however, said following the...

Ryan Sweeney Apologizes to Fans for Punching Wall, Insists It Wasn't Intentional

Ryan Sweeney made a very, very costly mistake on Monday night. The Red Sox outfielder fractured a finger after punching a dugout wall during the Red Sox' win over the Tigers at Fenway Park, and he now may be out for up to two months. On Tuesday, the outfielder apologized. He did so via Twitter. Sweeney's name had been coming up in trade talks in recent weeks, but that'...

Will the Boston Red Sox trade Jarrod Saltalamacchia?

A couple years ago, the Boston Red Sox finally acquired a long sought out catching prospect in Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Once a top prospect, Salty had lost much of his value after a couple years of bouncing back and forth between the major leagues and the minor leagues and completely losing his ability to catch at one point. The Red Sox reclaimed him and he has been a fairly good part...

Adrian Gonzalez, Dustin Pedroia Leading the Way as Red Sox Stay Hot Against Tigers

Editor's note: The temperature gauge is a Bill James-created statistic that measures how hot or cold hitters are. We will spotlight Red Sox and opposing team temperatures on game days. A little trip to New York seemed to help the Red Sox find their mojo, and they've carried it back to Fenway Park. Coming off their third win in a row, the Red Sox will look to ride the hot...

Beckett scratched from Sunday start

Josh Beckett has been scratched by the Boston Red Sox from his scheduled start Sunday against the Minnesota Twins. Beckett left Tuesday night's game against Detroit after 2 2/3 innings because of a back spasm. Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said Friday that he didn't think the right-hander will go on the disabled list. Beckett is 5-9 with a 4.54 ERA in 18 starts this season...

Red Sox Fans Anxious but Hopeful About Team's Future Despite Quiet Trade Deadline (Video)

The Red Sox had a relatively quiet trade deadline, but that doesn't mean the team is going to pack it in the rest of the way. In fact, the team might actually be gearing up for a significant run at the playoffs following July 31, but not from the usual strategy of bringing in a big name to shake up the clubhouse. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette asked our Twitter followers for...

Breslow's Red Sox debut begins a batter too late

It was precisely the type of situation for which the Boston Red Sox traded for left-handed reliever Craig Breslow. Yet Breslow didn't pitch. With lefty-hitting slugger Prince Fielder coming to the plate in the fifth inning Wednesday night and the Red Sox trailing the Detroit Tigers 5-1 after Miguel Cabrera's two-run homer, manager Bobby Valentine elected to stick with...

Recap: Sox beat Tigers 7-3 behind Buchholz's strong outing

Maybe this is the start of the good streak that Bobby Valentine (and the rest of us) have been waiting for? All things are looking better for the Sox who managed to get their third win in four games as the Red Sox beat the Tigers, 7-3. It was thanks in large part to Clay Buchholz, as he was able to tame the potent Tigers offense, allowing five hits & three runs (two of them...

Twins-Red Sox Preview

The Boston Red Sox appeared to have found their groove before coming up short their last time out. A visit from the Minnesota Twins could be just what they need to regroup. The Red Sox open a four-game set Thursday night against a Twins club hoping to avoid an 11th loss in 12 games at Fenway Park. Boston (53-52) had won four straight by a combined 22-12 score before falling 7...

Report: Red Sox Among Teams Inquiring About Rafael Betancourt

The Red Sox bullpen has been a bright spot amidst the team's up-and-down season, but that's not stopping the club from doing its homework on relievers. The Sox are among the teams inquiring about Rockies reliever Rafael Betancourt, according to Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan. The Rangers, Braves and Blue Jays are reportedly also checking in on the right-hander. Betancourt...
