It’s now going on nine years since the Red Sox broke the Curse of the Bambino and captured the franchise’s first World Series title in 86 years.
While David Ortiz remains the last Red Sox from the 2004 team, on Thursday it was announced the Pedro Martinez would be returning to Boston as a special assistant.
With Jason Varitek also joining the front office last season, it begs the question whether there is room for more.
Trot Nixon spent 10 seasons in Boston, becoming a fan favorite for his scrappy play and his consistent hustle. Nixon embodied the “dirt dog” attitude that helped lift the Curse of the Bambino. During his time in a Red Sox uniform, Nixon tallied 133 home runs and 523 runs batted in, while compiling a .278 batting average.
The Red Sox may have never won the World Series in 2004 if it wasn’t for Dave Roberts, the speedster the Sox picked up at the trade deadline. In Game 4 of the American League Championship Series, Roberts stole second off Yankees closer Mariano Rivera...

Life is good in Boston. Pedro Martinez and Jason Varitek have re-signed and everyone is hopeful for 2007. Wait, I've heard that line before. Well, although its 2013, Pedro and Varitek are both being signed by Boston, but this time it is as Special Assistants to the General Manager. While we fans are excited to see two legends come back and help their old team, what will this...

I'm a man of my word and as promised here's a quick preview of the 2013 Red Sox starting rotation. Keep in mind this isn't an in depth Jeremy Schaap-esque report (that guy can pull a story), but rather a glancing look at what was, what is and what might be in store for the Red Sox starting rotation.
Enjoy Red Sox Nation, enjoy.

Ryan Sweeney will apparently get another chance with the Boston Red Sox.
The 27-year-old outfielder ended his own 2012 season, and will now have
to win a spot on the Sox 2013 Major League roster. The two sides agreed
upon a minor league contract, with an invitation to major league camp that would
allow him to elect free agency if he is not added to the major league roster...
Boston is freezing and Opening Day is still more than two months away, but Fenway Park already has a baseball feel to it.
That’s because the Red Sox will be hosting the Winterfest Video Game Tournament at the ballpark on Saturday, Jan. 26. The event, which will transform the Fenway Park suites into an arcade, will take place 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
The bracket-style tournament will feature...
According to a report from WEEI’s Rob Bradford on Friday, Red Sox outfielder Ryan Kalish will likely undergo surgery on an unspecified ailment and miss the entirety of spring training.

Today the Red Sox announced that Pedro “Peety” Martinez
would be rejoining the Red Sox organization as a special assistant to the
general manager. I don’t know what a “special assistant to the general manager”
does exactly, but I’m stoked to have him back in Beantown. I won’t speak on
behalf of the entire Red Sox Nation (although I could and most of the time
As reported earlier this morning by Anthony Aidonidis the Red Sox pitching staff will report to
the Sox spring training facility in Ft. Meyers ahead of

for newly minted manager John Farrell as the Sox attempt to turn the page on a
disappointing 2012 season.
RedSox.com is reporting that manager...

The Red Sox and Pirates seem to be good trading partners this off-season. A big deal at the end of December brought Joel Hanrahan already to Boston.
If the two sides keep the communications open there might be another deal to be made.
The Pirates are the ones to start the latest rumor that Garrett Jones...
Turns out, Bo knows all about Mike Napoli's hip problem. A physical exam administered by the Boston Red Sox in December showed that Napoli is afflicted by "avascular necrosis," the slugger revealed Jan. 22 after finalizing a greatly reduced contract to be the team's primary first baseman. The medical condition, which can lead to bone death and degeneration, exists...

With pitchers and catchers reporting to Fort Myers, Florida for spring training February 10th, the Boston Red Sox are primed to put their past three dismal seasons behind them and get back to American League East royalty.
