John Farrell, Boston Red Sox React To Michael Pineda’s Pine Tar Ejection

BOSTON — The Red Sox’s overall stance on Michael Pineda’s pine tar use can best be summarized with a resounding, “C’mon, man.” Pineda, who was questioned for allegedly using pine tar in his start against Boston on April 10, was ejected in the second inning of Wednesday’s Red Sox-Yankees game for having pine tar on his neck — which is illegal. Red Sox manager John...

Michael Pineda was ejected for cheating with pine tar against the Red Sox

Yankee pitcher Michael Pineda is a cheater. Pineda was caught with something on his hand the last time he pitched against the Boston Red Sox but Boston manager John Farrell chose not to protest the substance and Pineda was allowed to pitch. Wednesday night didn’t go quite as well for Pineda.

Terrible Human Swipes Foul Ball From Little Boy At Red Sox Game

This type of lowlight never fails to make me super angry, but this was. Not only does the grown ass man intentionally swipe the souvenir away from the little boy, he then proceeds to look him right in the eye as if to say “suck it, kid.” Since the kid was wearing a Yankees beanie, I’d have to imagine this horrible grown man was a Red Sox fan getting a little carried away with...

Daniel Nava Still In Red Sox’s 2014 Plans Despite Demotion To Triple-A

BOSTON — Go ahead. Count out Daniel Nava. It wouldn’t be the first time the outfielder has been written off. Nava’s entire baseball career has been built on defying the odds, so a demotion to Triple-A Pawtucket likely isn’t going to rattle the 31-year-old, even if it’s somewhat surprising given how well he played last season during the Red Sox’s improbable World Series...

Not-So-Right Stuff: What's Happened To Clay?

(Associated Press Photo)'s Alex Speier takes on the pressing issue of "What the heck is wrong with Clay Buchholz?" and suggests that it's lack of confidence in his arm strength that explains the righty's crappy start to 2014 (0-2, 7.71 ERA).

This Ain’t Your 2013 Red Sox

  After Sunday night’s come-from-behind win, it sure looked like the spirit of the 2013 Red Sox was back. The very next day, they rally back from six runs down, and you start making plans for October. The next thing you know, you’re rolling around on the ground gasping for breath and holding your nuts. It’s a feeling I’m afraid we’re going to have to get used to this...

Fenway Park has a 'Sleep Room' for players to take naps in?

It’s one of those things you’re not likely to see during your $17 tour of “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark”…the Boston Red Sox “sleep room”.
