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...

Red Sox and Yankees? Simply No Comparison.

I’m about to binge watch every episode of “The Inappropriately Handsy First Base Coach” Half the line-up hitting under .200? Defense that almost begs to be accompanied by the Benny Hill theme music? Injury-prone folks like Teixeira and Ellsbury expected to carry some weight? As a survivor of the 1986 World Series and the 2003 ALCS and witness to too many Yankees Elimination...

Red Sox Notes: David Ortiz Getting Opening Day Start At First Base

It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but David Ortiz will be in the lineup for the Boston Red Sox on Opening Day. That’s usually a given, but with the rarity of the Red Sox starting the season in Philadelphia — in a National League ballpark — there was at least a little bit of uncertainty as to whether would get the nod. Red Sox manager John...

Mike Napoli is in Full “Hulk Smash” Mode

So far, spring training’s been bringing us a lot of downers. Vazquez is lost, Kelly’s arm is buggy, Koji’s starting the season on the DL and Victorino’s been grandfathered into an outfield slot that seemed all but given to Rusney Castillo. But there’s been some good news, too. For one, this team’s been scoring runs by the ******** (an actual metric measurement). For...

Mike Napoli, Red Sox’s Offense Look Ready To Throw Haymakers In 2015
