Lars Anderson is one of those legendary minor league sluggers that will probably never get a job as a full-time major league player. But even so, occasionally such legendary power does something that just makes your jaw drop. Take for example, this prodigious blast that hit his own picture on the scoreboard and broke it. If the embedded video doesn't work, click here: &...
In the midst of a season plagued by injuries, the Red Sox are finally above .500. Now that they've got a winning record under their belt, it's time to focus on a different issue -- when they can expect to get some of their injured players back. The Sox have been playing without players like Jacoby Ellsbury, Carl Crawford and Andrew Bailey for most of the season. These injuries...
Figuring out how to get Kevin Youkilis and Will Middlebrooks in the lineup together can be a headache at times, but they showed why it's worth it on Wednesday night. David Ortiz, Youk and Middlebrooks all homered and the Red Sox rallied against the Tigers to win 6-4 and take their third straight over Detroit. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is in a basketball mood, so he's...
Dustin Pedroia has been diagnosed with a torn abductor muscle in his right thumb. The injury typically takes a month to heal, however, Pedroia is going to be fitted with a splint and will attempt to play through the injury.
Pedroia sustained the injury in Monday Night’s game with making a diving play in the sixth inning. Although the play was worthy of a web gem, it ended up being...
Before taking batting practice this afternoon, Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz took a few minutes of his time to talk with Kevin Millar and Chris Rose on Intentional Talk.
I will only say this. This was one of the funniest interviews I've ever seen. Enjoy!

Daniel Nava was in just his second game atop the Red Sox lineup, and the career minor leaguer was forced to leadoff the game against the reigning AL MVP and Cy Young award winner. Justin Verlander made quick work of Nava the first time through the order, inducing the outfielder into a slow-rolling ground out to third base. But after working a walk his next time at the dish, Nava...
Sure, injuries are a part of any game, but sometimes it gets near ridiculous, when a slew of ‘em hit one particular team. That’s been the case with the Boston Red Sox so far this season, whose problems began before the season even started.
That’s part of the reason why the Sox started so slowly this season, and makes their recent resurgence even more impressive...
The Red Sox are finally above .500. That's hardly enough to get most Boston fans excited at this time of year, but considering where the team stood at the beginning of the season, it's actually quite impressive. The Sox even got to Tigers ace Justin Verlander on Tuesday night despite a banged-up lineup, and then picked up another victory on Wednesday. But before Thursday...
BOSTON -- Daniel Nava hit a three-run double, and the Boston Red Sox pounded Detroit ace Justin Verlander to move above .500 for the first time this season, beating the Tigers 6-3 Tuesday night. It was the 13th win in 18 games for the steadily climbing Red Sox (25-24), who remain last in the AL East but are just 3 1/2 games out of first place. Prince Fielder had a solo homer...
Whenever Justin Verlander takes the mound for the Detroit Tigers, it's an event. He's so good that in any given start, he could possibly throw a no-hitter. Fortunately for the Boston Red Sox, that wasn't the case on Wednesday night in their 6-3 win.
And it was the bat of Daniel Nava that was the big difference in that win.
Nava came up in the 4th inning with the bases...

They have six outfielders currently on the disabled list; Ryan Kalish, Carl Crawford, Jason Repko, Jacoby Ellsbury, Cody Ross and Darnell McDonald. Ryan Sweeney was on the seven day concussion DL until a few days ago. The Red Sox have had to [...]
