Keury De La Cruz And Shiny New Toys

Entering the 2012 season, Red Sox prospect Keury De La Cruz was a relative unknown after two years of modest production in short season baseball.

A-Rod takes out Red Sox first baseman, says it reminded him of high school football

Alex Rodriquez looked like Brandon Jacobs rumbling through a lone safety when he ran into the Boston Red Sox first baseman during Wednesday night's game at Fenway Park.

Red Sox Prospect Brandon Jacobs Preparing for Spring Training After Offseason of Travel, Yoga

Brandon Jacobs had a chance to shine on the gridiron. A standout running back at Parkview (Ga.) High School, Jacobs pledged to Auburn and could have suited alongside quarterback Cam Newton. Instead, he traded college football for pro baseball. Slowly but surely, the Red Sox’s 10th-round pick in the 2009 draft is validating that decision, especially after blasting 17 homers and...
