Boston Red Sox: Quick hits

Even though they are a long way from contention, the Boston Red Sox continue to be an entertaining team to watch night in and night out. Due to a poor record, they’ve been given the chance to, how should I put this, experiment with a roster that provides fans with a mixed bag of talent and characters: you’ve got the veteran mainstays like Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz; the...

Allen Craig: ‘It Felt Great’ To Hit First Home Run In Red Sox Uniform

A foot injury prevented Allen Craig from hitting the ground running with the Boston Red Sox. The outfielder/first baseman offered a glimpse Tuesday of what he’s all about. Craig, who was acquired from the St. Louis Cardinals at the Major League Baseball non-waiver trade deadline, hit his first home run in a Red Sox uniform as Boston defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 11-7 in 11 innings...

WATCH: Mike Napoli crushes home run into upper deck

The blast, which landed in the fifth deck, traveled an estimated 452 feet. Napoli’s home run is only the 17th ever hit into the fifth deck at Rogers Centre, according...

Red Sox Rumors: Boston should pursue Braves' Jason Heyward

The Boston Red Sox have had a time this season finding an outfield that can stay healthy and can also hit the baseball. Even with the acquisition of Yoenis Cespedes at the July 31 trade deadline hasn't really helped all that much. But according to Scott Lauder of the Boston Herald, the Red Sox might have their eyes set on someone who could be a real game changer, Jason Heyward...

Fenway Fanatic Creates Red Sox Fan Art With Security Stickers

A Boston Red Sox fanatic going by the reddit name of  frieddoughf**ker (which she explains came from the powerful smell of fried dough at the park) created some awesome fan art after attending 48 home games at Fenway Park in 2014. Using the 47 (one of her visits was a double-header) brightly-colored security stickers  that Fenway Park ushers placed on her bag after checking it...

Clay Buchholz and the World’s Most Dramatic Umpire

Remember that guy named “Clay Buchholz” who was our single most effective pitcher out of the gate last season? That guy showed up again last night at Skydome, working 8 solid innings and giving up just 2 hits and no runs. Of course, once the ninth inning hit, we were hit with a sharp reminder that this is 2014, not 2013. After getting the first out, Clay let the next three batters...

Rusney Castillo’s Agent: Red Sox A ‘Very Natural’ Fit For Outfielder

Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo was drawn to the Boston Red Sox for reasons beyond his new seven-year, $72.5 million contract. Castillo, who officially signed with the Red Sox over the weekend following an intense bidding war, viewed Boston as a place where he could be comfortable. The 27-year-old apparently relishes the opportunity to play for a passionate fan base. “When you...

Rusney Is Puig Latin For Steals

The signing of Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo by the Boston Red Sox has everybody excited. Like other Cuban players, scouts were limited in the amount of looks they were able to get and so the information we have on him is somewhat limited as well. The one tool that is not in question is his speed. A 30+ steal season from Castillo is a possibility as soon as 2015. The power is...

Boston Red Sox land Rusney Castillo

In a move that required a record amount of money towards a free agent who’s yet to see a pitch in MLB, the Boston Red Sox continued to re-shape their offense moving forward by inking Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo to a seven-year, $72.5 million deal. Castillo, who was born in Ciego de Avila, is a 5-foot-9, 205 pound outfielder. He is described by scouts as a four-tool player...

It's Official: Red Sox #38— OF Rusney Castillo

The Red Sox made it official yesterday by announcing the signing of Cuban defector Rusney Castillo to a 7-year, $72.5 million contract. The speedy 27-year old OF has put on 20 pounds of muscle over the last year and projects to be a top-of-the-order speedster who hits for average and some power. Essentially, he is the Ellsbury replacement. Said GM Ben Cherington, "He's got...

Watch: Red Sox fan gets hit by foul ball after failed attempt to stretch out and catch it

Red Sox SP Joe Kelly had an excellent outing in Friday night's game against the Seattle Mariners, giving up only 1 hit (0 ER) in five innings. But Koji Uehara's five-run implosion in the ninth inning was the difference in another disappointing loss. And when the pitcher's duel was deadlocked at 0-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning—right before the Sox took the lead...

Report: Jon Lester returning to Boston ‘a long shot’

The consensus since the Boston Red Sox traded Jon Lester to the Oakland Athletics at the trade deadline has been that Lester, a free agent at season’s end, very well may end up back in Boston next season. But, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, Lester returning to Boston this upcoming winter is viewed as a long shot. Back in Spring Training, the Red Sox offered Lester a four...
