Red Sox Designate Daniel Nava For Assignment

As we suggested might happen back in mid-July, Daniel Nava was designated for assignment by the Red Sox today. If this is truly the end of his Red Sox career, there will be many good memories. For example, Nava was just the fourth MLB player ever to hit a grand slam in his first major league at bat—and just the second to do it on the very first pitch he saw in the bigs. In the...

Red Sox Fan Projectile Vomits At Fenway Park

UpChuckNation In ActionOK, it's been a really bad season—but not that bad. A sickened fan vomited at Fenway Park last night from a second-level of luxury seats onto the unfortunate masses below. It's unclear what exactly provoked the flow—but it might have been the inability of anyone in the Red Sox infield to cover third base while a White Sox player happily scampered there...

VIDEO: Red Sox fan pukes all over other Red Sox fans

Twitter With a current record of 44-58, you might say that the Boston Red Sox have puked all over themselves in 2015.  On Wednesday night during the Red Sox 9-2 loss to the White Sox, one Red Sox fan puked all over his fellow Red Sox brethren. Was he ill?  Maybe.  Did he dabble in the sauce a little bit too much before the game?  Likely.  Is it hilarious to know that obnoxious...

Farrell: Sandoval's conditioning 'continues to be addressed'

BOSTON — When dehydration forced Pablo Sandoval to leave Wednesday’s game, ongoing concerns about his conditioning immediately came to mind. Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell couldn’t name exactly what prompted Sandoval’s fifth-inning exit — maybe it was the 91-degree heat, Farrell said, or the fact that he had tried to score from first base earlier in the game ...

Mookie Betts makes great catch, but turns double into homer

Well, this has to suck. In the sixth inning of Tuesday’s White Sox-Red Sox game at Fenway Park, Mookie Betts made an outstanding catch to rob Jose Abreu of extra bases. Then he fell over the outfield wall, lost control of the ball, and a replay review turned the third out into a two-run homer. If Betts simply let the ball drop, the play would have had a better result for the...

Shane Victorino gives teary goodbye to Boston after being traded (Video)

Scrappy outfielder Shane Victorino punched his ticket to Boston immortality with his conquests during the 2013 MLB Postseason. Victorino was a crucial contributor that year, helping the Red Sox capture the World Series in an unforgettable run just months after the Boston Marathon bombing.

Angels acquire Shane Victorino from the Red Sox

We have a trade. According to Fox Sports Jon Morosi, the Los Angeles Angels acquired outfielder Shane Victorino from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for infielder Josh Rutledge and cash. The move, while not monumental, makes sense for the Angels. The club has primarily used Matt Joyce in left field, which has yielded disappointing results. In 86 games, Joyce is batting below the...

Is the Price right for Boston?

As the trade deadline is approaching rapidly, the Boston Red Sox still find themselves with a need to make a trade. They aren’t completely out of the wildcard race in the A.L. but if they go on another losing streak they very well may.

David Price won't rule out Red Sox despite testy past

It’s time for David Ortiz to assume a platoon role with the Boston Red Sox

David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox hit two home runs and picked up seven RBI in Sunday night’s 11-1 win over the Detroit Tigers.  After failing to hit above .237 in any of the first three months of the season, Ortiz is at .303 for the month of July and is hitting .357 (10-for-28) in the past seven days. So it may seem that now might not be the time to once again call for the Red...

Pedro Martinez: Greatest Red Sox Pitcher of My Lifetime and Dominican Jedi Knight

Through the years, I’ve made a lot of jokes about putting my fist through a wall during a Red Sox game. Fact is, dear readers, I’ve only really done it once. On the evening of August 29, 2000. When Pedro Martinez lost a no-hitter in the ninth inning of a game against the Devil Rays. Back then, on that fateful night, some of you may have been in diapers. Maybe one or two not even...

Martinez, as you might recall, declared back in 2001 that he didn’t believe in “damn curses” – more specifically, the Curse of the Bambino – and that he’d drill Babe Ruth (who, of course, died in 1948) on the backside if he ever had an opportunity to...

Boston Red Sox put Dustin Pedroia on disabled list again as long season continues

The Boston Red Sox continued to experience the woes of a long season on Saturday, when they placed second baseman Dustin Pedroia on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring. This is the same injury that caused Pedroia to miss almost a month around the All-Star break. Pedroia was activated from his first DL stint on July 17 but has struggled mightily during his brief...

The Red Sox Don’t Win Often. But When They Do, It Is Spectacular.

I will admit that after watching the Sox drop eight in a row and flush whatever meager hope existed of a postseason run down the crapper, I was relieved to see Detroit, fellow members of the sub-.500 club, come to town. Of course, this is the 2015 Red Sox, and right now the late night shift from Roche Bros. supermarket in West Roxbury could give them a tough time. So I should not...
