Detroit Tigers trade rumors: deadline day deal?

The Detroit Tigers head into the final day of the MLB non-waiver trade deadline with a choice to make. Dropping 5 of 7 on their current homestand has fans in the Motor City uneasy yet again. The decision has boiled down to whether this team should add one final piece to the puzzle. So far, the trade with the Miami Marlins has left much to be desired. Anibal Sanchez got torched north...

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...

Beckett leaves game with injury

Josh Beckett has left the Boston Red Sox game in the third inning with an apparent lower back injury.

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.

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'...

Game 2012.103: Tigers at Red Sox

Detroit Tigers, 54-48, 2nd place, 1.5 back. The Tigers, who were a Peralta away from being swept by the Blue Jays, will stay East and try the Red Sox for a 3-game set that ends Wednesday night on ESPN. Even though the Tigers have started strong in the 2nd half (10-6), they have still been a bit of an offensive jugger-not.  They are batting .257 as a team since the break (.269 before...

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...

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...

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.

For The Detroit Tigers Its Starting To Feel Like 1993

That year the fateful road trip was to Baltimore, Boston, and New York. Flash...
