Found July 29, 2012 on Sox and Dawgs:
After winning last night 8-6, the Boston Red Sox look to get back to .500 and take the weekend series tonight in the finale of a three-game set with the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. First pitch is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN. You can also watch the game online at or on your mobile device with the WatchESPN app. If you can't catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to it on the Red Sox radio network. Felix Doubront toes the rubber for the 20th time this season tonight. In his previous 19 starts, Doubront is 10-5 with a 4.54 ERA. He's made two starts against the Yankees this season and is 1-0 with a 2.92 ERA (4 ER/12.1 IP). He's made six career appearances (two starts) against the Evil Empire and is 1-0 with a 3.18 ERA (6 ER/17 IP). Two of those appearances have come in the Bronx where he has no record with a 0.00 ERA (0 ER/2 IP). Hiroki Kuroda will make his 21st start of 2012 for ...

Recap: Ciriaco comes through in 10th, leads Sox to series win

The Red Sox gave up more late-inning runs, but held on to win in 10 innings, 3-2. Pedro Ciriaco picked up only one hit and it was a big one, an RBI single in the top of the 10th that proved to be the game-winner. The Red Sox scored two runs in the 2nd inning via a Ryan Sweeney 2-run double. Felix Doubront did a great job preserving that lead until he surrendered a solo homer to...

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...

Josh Beckett Needs to Take Advantage of Support, Show Red Sox He Can Help Team Beyond Trade Deadline

Josh Beckett is in a precarious spot in his Boston tenure. Ask Beckett and the Red Sox, and they'll say he's having a down year. Ask analysts and fans, and you'll get a mix of groans, criticism, confused shakes of the head and mentions of last year's clubhouse atmosphere. Another word they like very much lately is "trade." The bottom line is this: Beckett...

Ciriaco comes through for Red Sox again

Infielder Pedro Ciriaco did it again. Ciriaco delivered the game-winning hit Sunday night, a fisted blooper into shallow right field to score Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the 10th inning and give the Red Sox a 3-2 victory over the Yankees. But Ciriaco's presence in the lineup at shortstop had little to do with his recent hot streak or his go-ahead RBI triple in the ninth inning...

Clay Buchholz's Domination of Rangers Propels Righty to Second Consecutive Amica Pitcher of the Week Award

It has been a rough week for the Red Sox. Boston has lost six of its last seven games, and the primary culprit has been the team's starting pitchers, who have an 8.01 ERA in those seven games. To be fair, those games have been played against the American League's first-, second- and fourth-ranked offenses in terms of runs scored -- the Red Sox are third in that category ...

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...

Red Sox need to make a “baseball decision”

Ben Cherrington needs to make a baseball move for the fans to come back on board It’s getting increasingly difficult to be a fan of the Boston Red Sox, not just because the team is struggling on the baseball field but because it feels more and more every day that the Boston Red Sox ownership group doesn’t care about the fan. This week told the whole story. The Boston Red Sox...

Dear Red Sox GM Ben Cherington

Dear Ben Cherington, If there is one message that you need to get out of this letter it’s this: Grow a pair. Seriously Ben, it is time for you to man up and grow a pair. Everybody in Red Sox Nation thinks that you are nothing but a puppet for the Three Stooges higher up [...]

Redsock Nation rejoices: WALLY IS SAFE

Last night's victory over Boston rang hollow, shadowed by the stark reality that no Redsock could be expected to hit with his eyes full of tears. Their Wally had been removed - stolen, excised, amputated, torn from them. And no one knew where his Wally was.I watched in Darwinian disbelief that the game was being played. It should have postponed, or cancelled, or forfeited...

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...

Red Sox Get a Little Luck on Their Side in Series-Tying Defeat of Yankees

Editor's note: is going to tell the story of the 2012 Red Sox in Bobby Valentine’s words. Each game day, we will select the best Valentine quote that sums up the day for the Red Sox. Curtis Granderson may be a step or two below the caliber of a gold glover at this stage in his career, but he's still a lauded-enough center fielder to have moved the fleet-footed...
