Red Sox Notes: Dan Butler, Carlos Rivero Add Feel-Good Twist To Loss

BOSTON — The Red Sox’s offense woke up way too late. The Red Sox, who mustered up two runs through the first 26 innings of their three-game series against the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park, exploded for five runs in the bottom of the ninth Wednesday before ultimately losing 10-6. The Sox now head out on their final road trip of 2014. It’s a 10-game, three-city excursion...

O's Sweep Sox Into Dustbin Of History, 10-6

(AP Photo/Charles Krupa)Did you really expect anything different. The Orioles have been living the "Charm City" life all year—much like the Red Sox did last year. So, for them to sweep the woefully inept Red Sox at Fenway is really no surprise. Today, they completed the sweep with a 10-6 thrashing that was way worse than the final score might indicate. Boston scored five...

Guts, Glory, Timbers

Frequently this year, the Portland Timbers have cited their ability to battle and draw points back from the dead as their calling card. It rang a little hollow. It’s not like the Timbers were down a man, down a goal, running Jorge Villafana and Ben Zemanski around and chasing an equalizer with no forward when they were fighting back to get late goals against the likes of Philadelphia...

Olson, who is rumored to be heading to the bullpen soon put forth one of his best starts of the season, stifling the Chiefs batters for most of...

MMO Farm Report: Germen K’s Nine In AA Debut, Tuiasosopo Homers Twice, Pill Solid

Which one of you suckers shall I slice up first? Buffalo 9, Syracuse 0 When Syracuse’s Carlos Rivero ripped a two-out double to left center in the top of the seventh inning, it mattered little to the outcome of the game. That’s because Bisons starting pitcher Jeremy Hefner had crafted a dominant display of pitching beforehand, allowing the Bisons to build a comfortable lead they...

Carlos Rivero claimed on waivers by the Nats

Just as I say I might not have anything to post about again for a while, the Nats have claimed Carlos Rivero off waivers. I wrote extensively about Rivero back in May, and while I’m sad to see him go, I don’t think this is anything to get too worked up over. He showed good tools in 2011 in a rebound season, but he is still largely a flawed prospect. He is very rough defensively...
