WATCH: Houston Astros OF Jake Marisnick Crashes into Green Monster As He Makes Awesome Catch to End Inning

The Houston Astros just activated outfielder Jake Marisnick off the DL, and on Sunday he did something that very well could have put him right back on it.

Jake Marisnick makes sprinting catch, smashes into Green Monster

It's Clear That The Red Sox "Future" Is Now

Last night, the top three hitters in the Red Sox order were 11 for 18 with 4 RBIs. The average age of those guys—Mookie Betts, Brock Holt and Xander Bogaerts—was 23.7. And with 23-year old Blake Swihart's return, four of their starters (you have to assume Swihart is the starter when healthy) will average 23.5.

Is Brock Holt an All-Star?

For the Boston Red Sox, this year has been more than just a disaster. Negatives have riddled the team. From Hanley Ramirez‘s lack of hustle, to David Ortiz‘ and Mike Napoli‘s inability to hit, to the ineffective starting pitching, this year has been a calamity. Some could argue it’s worse than the Bobby Valentine-ruined 2012 season and some could even argue it’s worse than...

Even Mookie Betts Finds Rick Porcello’s Starts Forgettable

Last night, something truly wondrous happened: Multi-millionaire Rick Porcello took the hill for the Red Sox and we didn’t lose. Rick did do his best to keep the Rays in the game, however, generously allowing them to tie the game after the Sox clawed out an early lead thanks to runs driven in by the likes of Jackie Bradley Jr and Alejandro De Aza.

Red Sox Notes: Brock Holt Far Outplaying ‘Utility Man’ Label For Boston

Over these past few weeks, Brock Holt has been as valuable for the Boston Red Sox as he is versatile. He’s been the epitome of a utility man — catcher and pitcher are the only positions he’s yet to line up at this season — but his production at the plate has far surpassed what’s usually expected from a player that role. Following a two-hit, three-run effort in Thursday’s...

In 104 games over two seasons, Ciriaco hit a more than respectable .281 for Boston (playing 2B, SS, 3B, LF, CF, RF and DH). In a way, he was kind of a poor man's Brock Holt.
