Boston Red Sox sit Brock Holt for first time since May

On Wednesday night, the Boston Red Sox sat Brock Holt for the first time since May 15th. Holt had just snapped a seven game hit streak the night before and with Shane Victorino back on the team, Holt isn’t going to be a guarantee in the lineup every night. Holt usually takes everybody else’s days off, filling in where he is needed, so it makes sense he played in so many games...

Red Sox News: Jon Lester extension talks tabled til offseason

The A-Rod VS. Varitek Brawl: One Decade Later

It's an iconic image burned into the brain of every Red Sox fan over the age of 10—Good versus Evil incarnate. Ten years ago today, Jason Varitek squared off with Alex Rodriguez in a classic brawl that can legitimately be called the watershed moment of the 2004 Championship season. When the game ended on Bill Mueller's walk-off home run, The Idiots had been galvanized....

Red Sox Pregame Notes 7/24/14 It's an early game today!

Toronto, ON- When is it going to end? Will the REAL Red Sox team stand up? After winning 8 of 9 and looking to scratch their way back to being relevant, Boston lost their second in a row to Toronto. Although David Ortiz is delivering on his promise to heat up, it's getting pretty chilly in the rest of the Boston dugout. Pitching hasn't helped that much either, as Clay Buchholz...

Sox Lighting A Candle For "Wick" In Peavy Deal

Cardinals Prospect Rowan Wick HomersRowan Wick is a 21-year old Canadian OF/C out of North Vancouver, B.C.—and he is the apple of Ben Cherington's eye. That is, he's the guy BenCher is asking for from the Cardinals in any swap for Boston starter Jake Peavy. Apparently, St. Louis is balking and wants to send cash and a meet-and-greet with a really polite Cardinal season...

Nation Is Outraged As Brock Holt Sits Out

(FenwayNation Photo)After 59 straight starts, Brock 'Babe' Holt is being "rested" tonight—just when the Rd Sox desperately need his juice at the top of the lineup to win tonight's critical Game 3 of the make-or-break road trip. Manager John Farrell justified the decision thusly, "We never like to take any player out that’s doing extremely well. And...

Whatever Happened to Felix Doubront?

The answer to this question is easy. He is buried in the Sox bullpen. When the season began, the 26-year-old Venezuelan was listed as the number 4 starter behind Jon Lester, John Lackey and Jake Peavy. But after a poor start and the emergence of Brandon Workman and Rubby DeLa Rosa (and later return of Clay Buchholz) he was exiled to the pen in the notorious spot of “long reliever”...

“AJ Pierzynski” Has a Message for the Boston Red Sox

Posted to Good Guys Wear BlackA blogger has tried to get into the mind of AJ Pierzynski, and what he may be thinking at the moment. Some of the highlights: ” On the very first day I showed up at spring training, a couple goons pulled me aside, explained that I parked in a spot reserved for Ortiz’s son’s minibike, and whipped me with a chain.” ” I figured it was some sort...

WATCH: Boston's Brock Holt makes unreal catch

The Red Sox were matching outs with runs this Monday night in Toronto, playing 14 runs before the fifth inning was even over. But Brock Holt added insult to injury with this absolutely incredible catch of a Dan Johnson fly ball, showing that when it rains (even in a dome) it pours.

WATCH: Fenway Park ballgirl screws up

One particular ballgirl at Fenway Park had an “oops” moment on Friday night. When KC Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer grounded a 3-2 pitch down the first-base line in the fourth inning, she went down and fielded the live ground ball in her mitt like a field player would. She then realized what had happened, so she froze up and dropped the ball. It worked out pretty well for...
