RED SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Hanley Ramirez broke the Green Monster

Hanley Ramirez had an eventful day on Friday. During batting practice before the Red Sox-Orioles game at Fenway, he hit a line drive so hard that it cracked a pad on the center field section of the Green Monster. He also wore the wrong red jersey before the game started. The oddities didn’t exactly translate to a great performance on the field, however – Ramirez went 0/3 with...

Hanley Ramirez is in his first season with the Red Sox after signing as a free agent. On Friday, he left quite an impression on his new home, Fenway Park.

Red Sox Walk Off in the 9th!

The Red Sox set off a 4 game series with the O’s with Joe Kelly on the mound vs. Ubaldo Jimenez.  Kelly had just come off a spectacular start in New York and hoped to build on that.  Kelly pitched well, but the game ended up in the hands of the bullpen. The game stayed scoreless until the 4th inning and that’s where it got exciting.  Kelly gave up the first run of the game...

Ubaldo Jimenez hit Pablo Sandoval with pitch, was ejected

Baltimore Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez was ejected from Friday night’s game against the Boston Red Sox for allegedly hitting Pablo Sandoval on purpose. Whether or not it actually was doesn’t matter; Jimenez aimed one into the front shoulder of Sandoval. According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the umpire may have tossed Jimenez because the off-target pitch could have been retaliation...

What If Tom Brady Played Baseball?

New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady is fresh off his fourth Super Bowl Championship and his third Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Award. The 37-year-old is no closer to retirement now than he was five years ago. Brady appears to be as a fine wine and just getting better with age, but did you know Tom Brady was almost a professional baseball player? Tom Brady is perhaps the...

Steven Wright Falters, But PawSox Still Win

PAWTUCKET, R.I. – The last time Steven Wright was in action, he was bailing out a beleaguered Boston Red Sox bullpen – in last Friday’s 19-inning marathon at Yankee Stadium. Wright tossed five innings of two-run ball in a game Boston eventually won 6-5. Suffice to say the difference between the Wright who tamed the hitting-impaired Yankees and the Wright who pitched Thursday...

Red Sox better hope Joe Kelly has the last laugh

Bill Foley (@Foles74)Contributing Writer Admit it, you laughed a little bit when Joe Kelly brought up his own name in the race for the 2015 American League Cy Young Award in January.(AP Photo) Kelly, after all, was a guy we figured was, at best, Boston’s No. 5 starting pitcher this season.

Bogie In, Panda & Papi Out Of Today's Lineup

Xander Bogaerts will be in the lineup today for the Red Sox, so his knee issue was likely minor. Pablo Sandoval, on the other hand, is not playing today—raising questions about his foot injury. It's not clear why David Ortiz is sitting—although it might just be a routine day off. Mike Napoli will DH today and Allen Craig will play at first. Brock "Mr. Swiss Army Knife" Holt will...

Mookie Betts has already become must-see television

Just over a week into the season, we’ve already seen plenty of intriguing storylines and overbearing narratives throughout Major League Baseball. However, there’s been a notable absence of the whole “baseball is dying” talk. Perhaps it’s because it’s still early in the season. Or that the pace of play changes are doing their job. Or that there are simply too many other...

Pesky Sox Bail Out Masterson; Beat Nats, 8-7

Castillo injured his shoulder Saturday making a diving catch for the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox and is now headed to the minor league disabled list. He was in Boston on Tuesday recieving treatment. Since last fall Castillo has been injured...

Baseball Begins Again For The PawSox

The question is: What can Kevin Boles do in his second season as the Pawtucket Red Sox manager? The answer may be to win a third Governors’ Cup championship in the last four years. Boles’ chances of doing so are interesting considering Pawtucket began the season with 11 of Boston’s top 30 prospects as rated by Baseball America. “Any time you can go with guys who are home...

David Ortiz talks trash to Jacoby Ellsbury (VIDEO)

David Ortiz is known for getting under his opponents’ skin on the diamond. Sunday night’s game against division rival Yankees brought more of the same, as Big Papi talked some trash to a former teammate in the fourth inning of the American League East matchup. Ortiz drew a leadoff walk, and a wild pitch allowed him to advance to second base. He then turned around, pointed...

Bogaerts the Hero of the Longest Red Sox Game Ever

Last night, as the Sox/Yanks game hit the halfway mark, I looked at my watch and realized we’d only been playing for little more than an hour. With the Sox seemingly in control, I’d already mapped out how I’d fill the rest of my evening — a plan that included binge-watching Daredevil on Netflix, grilling a few steaks and finding out how many Chinatown hookers it takes to...
