Brock Holt jokes about getting wrecked by Pedroia in infield collision

During the ninth inning of Monday's Red Sox-Blue Jays game, Boston rookie utilityman Brock Holt came streaking behind second base in pursuit of a Jose Reyes grounder while Dustin Pedroia sprinted toward the same ball from the opposite direction, with equal speed.  Kaboom. Both players attempted to halt before contact but they smashed into each other anyway, with Holt taking...

Fenway Fanatic Creates Red Sox Fan Art With Security Stickers

A Boston Red Sox fanatic going by the reddit name of  frieddoughf**ker (which she explains came from the powerful smell of fried dough at the park) created some awesome fan art after attending 48 home games at Fenway Park in 2014. Using the 47 (one of her visits was a double-header) brightly-colored security stickers  that Fenway Park ushers placed on her bag after checking it...

Wait? What? The Red Sox Won A Game?

The Red Sox had been riding a streak that they desperately wanted to get off, an 8 game losing streak.  The Sox had held leads in many of the games, but weren’t able to hold on to the lead into the final stretch.  Last night the Sox had the only remaining starter from the World Series team on the mound in Clay Buchholz.  Buchholz has done nothing but struggle this year and everyone...

Clay Buchholz and the World’s Most Dramatic Umpire

Remember that guy named “Clay Buchholz” who was our single most effective pitcher out of the gate last season? That guy showed up again last night at Skydome, working 8 solid innings and giving up just 2 hits and no runs. Of course, once the ninth inning hit, we were hit with a sharp reminder that this is 2014, not 2013. After getting the first out, Clay let the next three batters...

Red Sox Notes: Brock Holt Feeling ‘Little Cuckoo’ Following Collision

You can’t win ‘em all. You can’t lose ‘em all, either. The Boston Red Sox snapped their eight-game losing streak Monday with a 4-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. The Sox blew a three-run lead in the ninth inning but prevailed in 10 frames after Yoenis Cespedes knocked in Brock Holt with a two-out, two-strike RBI single. There were several positives to come...

Rusney Castillo’s Agent: Red Sox A ‘Very Natural’ Fit For Outfielder

Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo was drawn to the Boston Red Sox for reasons beyond his new seven-year, $72.5 million contract. Castillo, who officially signed with the Red Sox over the weekend following an intense bidding war, viewed Boston as a place where he could be comfortable. The 27-year-old apparently relishes the opportunity to play for a passionate fan base. “When you...

Rusney Is Puig Latin For Steals

The signing of Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo by the Boston Red Sox has everybody excited. Like other Cuban players, scouts were limited in the amount of looks they were able to get and so the information we have on him is somewhat limited as well. The one tool that is not in question is his speed. A 30+ steal season from Castillo is a possibility as soon as 2015. The power is...

Boston Red Sox land Rusney Castillo

In a move that required a record amount of money towards a free agent who’s yet to see a pitch in MLB, the Boston Red Sox continued to re-shape their offense moving forward by inking Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo to a seven-year, $72.5 million deal. Castillo, who was born in Ciego de Avila, is a 5-foot-9, 205 pound outfielder. He is described by scouts as a four-tool player...

It's Official: Red Sox #38— OF Rusney Castillo

The Red Sox made it official yesterday by announcing the signing of Cuban defector Rusney Castillo to a 7-year, $72.5 million contract. The speedy 27-year old OF has put on 20 pounds of muscle over the last year and projects to be a top-of-the-order speedster who hits for average and some power. Essentially, he is the Ellsbury replacement. Said GM Ben Cherington, "He's got...

Watch: Red Sox fan gets hit by foul ball after failed attempt to stretch out and catch it

Red Sox SP Joe Kelly had an excellent outing in Friday night's game against the Seattle Mariners, giving up only 1 hit (0 ER) in five innings. But Koji Uehara's five-run implosion in the ninth inning was the difference in another disappointing loss. And when the pitcher's duel was deadlocked at 0-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning—right before the Sox took the lead...

Report: Jon Lester returning to Boston ‘a long shot’

The consensus since the Boston Red Sox traded Jon Lester to the Oakland Athletics at the trade deadline has been that Lester, a free agent at season’s end, very well may end up back in Boston next season. But, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, Lester returning to Boston this upcoming winter is viewed as a long shot. Back in Spring Training, the Red Sox offered Lester a four...
