Found August 05, 2013 on The Nosebleeds:

After Saturday night’s Red Sox-Diamondbacks game, two reporters, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com and Todd Walsh of Fox Sports Arizona, exited the visitors locker room and entered one of the elevators at Fenway Park. Unfortunately for them, that particular elevator decided it was done working for the night, stranding the two reporters for twenty minutes. What’s a reporter to do in a situation like that? Well, live tweet it of course. Here’s how it went down.

Xander Bogaerts Continues to Impress, Will Middlebrooks Gets Ejected in Week That Was in Red Sox Farm System (Gallery)

One of the more interesting topics that continues to surround the 2013 Red Sox is who will play on the left side of the infield. Right now, it looks like the plan is to have Stephen Drew play shortstop, but the plan at third base remains unclear.

Shane Victorino named American League Player of the Week

DUANE BURLESON/ASSOCIATED PRESS According to a report from ESPNBoston.com, Boston Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino was named the American League Player of the Week on Monday.  The Wailuku, Hawaii native certainly had a week to remember last week as he batted .400 (12-for-30) with two home runs, three doubles, seven runs scored, and six RBIs.

Let’s all feel bad for John Lackey, the Red Sox best pitcher

John Lackey pitched another gem on Monday night in Houston, going six innings, striking out ten batters and only walking two. Unfortunately, Lackey also was tagged with the loss, dropping his record to 7-9 for the season. During the baseballs stone-ages, Lackey’s under .500 record would be a reflection of the rough season that Lackey was having, or maybe how John Lackey somehow...

Brandon McCarthy tagged with loss in return

Brandon McCarthy was sharp early on, but the Diamondbacks failed to score in Sunday’s 4-0 loss in Boston, capping off a series loss after a very promising win in the opener. McCarthy had good stuff early on in his return from the disabled list. A high pitch count doomed him and he left the game after 4.1 innings, giving up two runs and striking out five.

Felix Doubront is chasing the Babe

Scott Levesque Managing Editor If you've followed the Red Sox this season you know that the backend of the rotation has been stellar. Thanks to the resurgence of one John Lackey, the three thru five spots have carried the load, and kept the Red Sox afloat during many a games.  However, Felix Doubront has somehow continued to fly below the radar (or hidden within Lackey&...
