MLB Rumors: Before signing with Yankees, Brian McCann was very interested in joining Red Sox

Before signing with the New York Yankees, catcher Brian McCann drew interest from the Boston Red Sox and Texas Rangers. The Rangers had significant interest in signing McCann, as they were pushing hard to sign the top free agent catcher, but it appears that he had much more interest in joining the AL East.Red Sox catcher David Ross, who is very good friends with McCann, told Rob...

Sox Led Battle For New Post-Season PED Rules

You might call it the Jhonny Peralta Rule. Major League Baseball's new Joint Drug Agreement (perhaps the poorest choice of words possible for a drug policy) now bans offenders from participating in the post-season of the year they violated the rules. Seems simple. But last year, 2013 season offender Peralta was allowed to play in October and hit .286 against Boston in the ALCS...

David Ross Literally Puts His Nuts on the Line for the Sox

The state of the Red Sox’ recent play isn’t the only thing leaving a sting. During tonight’s contest with the Rangers, David Ross took a bounced ball to the nuts that had me bent over in pain roughly 15 miles from Fenway. Though Ross, ever the trooper, brushed it off, the GIF is still pretty cringe-inducing. Especially if you have nuts. You can check the video, too, which...

Red Sox Ring Ceremony and “Baba O’Riley”: A Curious Combination

If you needed a reminder of the embarrassment of riches that the past decade has been for Red Sox Nation, yesterday’s Fenway Opening Day gave us that and more. First, we had a chance to once again thank our 2013 heroes, who were all dolled up in sparkling, gold-trimmed jerseys. That meant another justifiably huge ovation for John “He Who Can Now Do No Wrong” Lackey; mad props...

Defending champion Red Sox have money to spend, lots of future flexibility

The Boston Red Sox won the 2013 World Series with a roster that had been completely reconstructed by General Manager Ben Cherrington. All of the finances required to build the team came from a generous trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers where Cherrington unloaded $264 million in long-term payroll obligations.In his second year on the job, Cherrington added catcher David Ross, outfielder...

Red Sox Receive Their World Series Rings From Marathon Survivors

In one of the classiest moves you’ll see this year, the Boston Red Sox had some marathon bombing survivors and family members deliver the World Series Rings to the players. Definitely a great look from the organization and these rings look absolutely fantastic. An absolutely stunning ring design. David Ross thought the Rings were pretty awesome too, saying “holy sh*t” as he...

Sox Take First Series of the Season

The Red Sox finished off the series against the Orioles with Felix Doubront on the mound vs. Wei-Yin Chen.  Doubront wasn’t as sharp as Lester and Lackey, but he still showed why pitching is a huge positive for the Sox this season.  The bats scored just enough runs to have Doubront snag his first win of the season. The Sox grabbed the first run of the game in the 2nd inning when...

Red Sox Catcher David Ross Spoofs the Movie Major League by Himself

Red Sox catcher David Ross stars in 'Major League' parody

Boston Red Sox backup catcher David Ross is one of the funniest players in the league, and this video of him re-enacting nearly every major role from Major League is just perfect. No Jake Taylor though? That would have been too perfect, considering Ross is, you know, a catcher.

C Prospect Swihart Promoted To AA Portland

Blake Swihart (FenwayNation Photo)The Red Sox are loaded with "close-to-the-majors" catching talent in their organization. It's part of the reason why they can rely on two "late-thirty-somethings" to carry the load in 2014 (A. J. Pierzynski and David Ross). One of the cadre of young backstops—Blake Swihart—has been assigned to AA Portland. Last year, Swihart...

The Boston Red Sox are working hard to prepare for their Word Series title defense. It doesn’t mean a little fun can’t creep its way into spring training, though.

Red Sox Take On Evil Ones Today At 1:05 PM

It means nothing, of course. If Felix Doubront goes out and hurls six no-hit innings against The Bronx Embalmers today, it will have absolutely no impact on who hoists the 2014 World Series trophy. And yet, it is the Red Sox versus the Yankees. And it may feature Jacoby Ellsbury in home pinstripes facing his fellow 2013 World Champions (if he isn't hurt). The Red Sox know who...
