Reading Between The Seams:
On Monday Night against the Tampa Bay Rays, Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia fit the part of Superman with everything but the cape. After knocking in 2 runs in the first, he then made a then game-saving awkward play on a strange pop-up on the infield as well as a charge play on a Sam Fuld bunt. Both plays were with 2 outs and the go-ahead or winning run crossing the plate for the Rays (courtesy of MLB.com) Later, Pedroia knocked a single in the 10th inning, stole 3rd with 1-out, then scored the go-ahead run which didn’t stand up at the time, however the Sox won the marathon match in the 14th against their AL East rivals. With division battles like this, it’s going to be a fun summer. - David Whitlock (@lhd_on_sports) Follow us on Twitter @rbts_baseball The post WATCH: Dustin Pedroia makes game saving plays against Tampa Bay Rays appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. Got an inspirational quote? The Tampa Bay Rays want to hear from you.
Deep quotes are nothing new on the Rays clubhouse lineup card they usually come from manager Joe Maddon but the club is doing some crowdsourcing to find fresh thought-provoking material.
On Monday, Maddon tweeted that he will select an inspirational quote each day sent to him via Twitter...
Tampa Bay Rays right-handed reliever Kyle Farnsworth exited last night's contest against the Boston Red Sox with tightness in his throwing forearm. Manager Joe Maddon told Adam Berry of MLB.com that it's "possible" Farnsworth could land on the DL as a result of the injury.
Farnsworth pitched to only one batter during his 11th-inning appearance, striking out...
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- AL Cy Young Award winner David Price is scheduled to throw his first simulated game Thursday since being sidelined last month by a strained left triceps.
The Tampa Bay left-hander, put on the disabled list for the first time in his career May 16, could rejoin the rotation by late June or early July.
Price was first scheduled to throw the simulated game...
In Major League Baseball there have always been great debates about star players from different teams. Some that immediately come to mind from the past are Joe DiMaggio or Ted Williams? Carlton Fisk or Thurman Munson? Hank Aaron or Willie Mays? Randy Johnson or Roger Clemens?
In this modern era we are in the players are bigger and stronger. There’s better nutrition, year...
The Red Sox have started their 4 game series with the Tampa Bay Rays with a split of the first two games. The first game went to extra innings before the Sox defeated the Rays and then in the second game the Sox lost. Here are the stars of the games:

In the 14 inning game most players got to step to the plate 7 times...
@nickcafardo - Boston GlobeThere it is, folks. Middlebrooks in, Iglesias out. This doesn't necessarily mean Jose will be sent back down to Pawtucket, he will likely stick around to platoon. Ciriaco will likely be the odd man out. In his 5 game with Pawtucket, Will Middlebrooks went 5-for-17, with 2 homers, and 6 RBI.
The Sox made it very clear that Middlebrooks would be inserted...
(Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images)The Red Sox plated six runs in the first inning before the Rays' Alex Cobb recorded an out. Then, John Lackey opened the floodgates to an eventual 6-6 tie that ended just before 1AM, with a 10-8 Boston victory. Daniel Nava drove in the winning run in the 14th, but it was Jarrod Saltalamacchia who was the offensive hero again—going 4 for 7 with...

Anything you have to say about tonight's 8-3 loss against the Rays begins and ends with Jon Lester.
Sure, there were near-fireworks when Rays starter Rofaustoberto Hernancarmonadez, still pitching in the 8th inning with a five-run lead and a high pitch count, drilled Dustin Pedroia. All sides behaved themselves, but it was so obvious that Joe Maddon had ordered retailiation...
Will Middlebrooks is officially off of the disabled list and back in the Red Sox lineup. Middlebrooks was activated from the DL and will make the start for the Red Sox tonight against the Tampa Bay Rays. Middlebrooks’ was placed on the DL in late May after suffering a lower back strain against the Cleveland Indians.
In lineup posted outside Red Sox clubhouse Will Middlebrooks...
If the Rays want revenge for John Lackey‘s beaning of Matt Joyce on Monday, they’re not likely to get it early on Tuesday night. After all, neither team can afford to lose a starting pitcher in this game, after they both burned up their bullpens in an extra-inning affair the last time out.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette isn’t ruling out any unruly behavior from the two teams...

Jose Iglesias has earned what seems to be a very steady role on the Red Sox 25 man roster. With the return of Will Middlebrooks from injury many expected Iglesias to stay in the bigs with his hot bat and Pedro Ciriaco become the odd man out. This will not be the typical utility infielder most are used to seeing on a big league team. Manager John Farrell...
After getting spanked last night, the Boston Red Sox look to take the series finale tonight in the rubber game of a three-game set with the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.
