Sox Rallied But Fell Short On Patriots Day

The Sox played the earliest game of the season yesterday with the 11am Patriots Day start.  The Sox were holding a 2-1 lead in the series and had Clay Buchholz up against Wei-Yin Chen for the O’s.  To say that Buchholz struggled would be a gross understatement.  Buch didn’t make it out of the 3rd inning and left the Sox in a huge hole. The bats tried to rally and make up for...

Fenway Park has a 'Sleep Room' for players to take naps in?

It’s one of those things you’re not likely to see during your $17 tour of “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark”…the Boston Red Sox “sleep room”. That’s right, Fenway Park has a room dedicated to, you guessed it, sleeping. “It is nice,” catcher David Ross said late last season.  “With the travel schedule you have here and this market and all the Sunday night games...

The Game Hidden Between Buchholz’s Pitches

When two teams play baseball, two games are being played simultaneously: the pitching, hitting, and fielding game that fans see, and the hidden (don’t call it “cheating”) game where players try to get gain a competitive edge on the opposition. Fans usually hear about the hidden game after the fact – like when Joe Mauer stole signs in a game against Detroit in 2009. Mauer...

Red Sox’s Offense Showing Encouraging Signs Despite Boston’s Slow Start

BOSTON — If the Red Sox’s offense stared itself in the mirror right now, it wouldn’t see the same unit that produced an MLB-best 853 runs (5.3 runs per game) last season. But it also shouldn’t be mortified by its appearance. The 9-11 Red Sox have endured struggles this season, and their inability to produce with runners on base has been a big reason why. Boston has begun...

David Ross: We’ve Always Had A Lot Of Confidence In Brock Holt (Video)

Brock Holt has been as good as advertised in his first two games with the Boston Red Sox this year. The young infielder was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday to give the slumping Boston offense a boost and he has certainly delivered. After going 2-for-4 with an RBI in Friday’s contest against the Baltimore Orioles, Holt hit a go-ahead triple to propel the Red Sox past...

David Ross Chalks Up Red Sox-Orioles Altercation As ‘Baseball Stuff’

BOSTON — Red Sox catcher David Ross suffered two concussions last season and missed more than two months. So when a couple of pitches whizzed by his head in the seventh inning of Saturday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles, he understandably was a bit flustered. Orioles starter Bud Norris threw two high-and-tight fastballs as Ross attempted to drop down a sacrifice bunt with...

Game 11: Red Sox at Yankees - Aces in play as Boston looks to get even

With that in mind, the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees square off for Game 2 of this four-game series in Yankee Stadium.

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...
