Bobby Valentine's Outburst Shows That Red Sox Haven't Actually Checked Out on Season (Video)

Take Bobby Valentine's word for it -- the Red Sox have not checked out on this season. They had plenty of opportunities to during a nine-game road trip along the Pacific, but even after losing seven in a row, fought back against the Mariners on Tuesday night to stop the bleeding. On Wednesday, they'll turn to Aaron Cook in the hopes of heading back to Boston on a high note...

Dustin Pedroia Remains Hot at Plate, With Red Sox Hoping Wins Continue to Follow

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.

Red Sox 'Homeward Bound' After Disastrous Road Trip Wraps Up With Another Loss (Video)

Finally, the Red Sox are coming home. After dropping eight of nine on their worst road trip of the season, the Sox will be back in Fenway after a long, long flight home from Seattle, and they'll get some much-needed rest with an off day.

Sox Lose Final Game of West Coast Swing

The Red Sox took the mound in the final game of a horrific west coast series with hopes of taking the game and the series against the Mariners.  Aaron Cook pitched well for the Sox, however he got little to no run support.  The Sox ended the road trip with another loss to be 1-8 in that time.  I'll be happy for the Sox to come home to Fenway and for the games to go back to...

Spot Starters for September 5th, 2012

A couple years ago I won our league’s championship with a team that finished the regular season one game under .500. It was easily the worst team I’ve had in recent memory, but somehow it’s the one that won the championship.
