Boston Red Sox: Who is Rusney Castillo?

Over the last couple of days, it has become clear that the Boston Red Sox are front runners for Cuban defector Rusney Castillo. The Red Sox have been rather demure in regards to the foreign market these past few years and it looks like they don’t want to miss out on Castillo.

Will Middlebrooks Absolutely Robs Former Red Sox John McDonald (Video)

For a moment, John McDonald probably regretted teaching Will Middlebrooks a thing or two. McDonald, now playing for the Los Angeles Angels, suited up for the Boston Red Sox down the stretch in 2013.

Jackie Bradley Jr. to Pawtucket, Mookie Betts to the Sox & Some Sweet JBJ Catches

The Red Sox announced that Jackie Bradley Jr., AKA the Human Highlight Reel, has been optioned to Pawtucket, with Mookie Betts set to join the Red Sox again. Gotta say, as much as JBJ’s offense has burned a hole in my stomach, his defense has been one of the rare highlights in this miserable suck of a season. Plus, he seems like a genuinely nice guy. I hope he gets things straight...
