    Stat Line of the Night — 10/15/2013 — John Lackey

    Question:  How do you top Justin Verlander‘s incredible performance that saw him allow only four hits and one run while striking out ten over the course of eight innings? Answer: Pitch 6.2 innings of shutout baseball while allowing only four hits and no walks against, and striking out eight. That is exactly what Red Sox […]

    Next time you hear someone say the magic is gone from professional baseball, direct them to this GIF, which shows the Detroit Tigers’ Torii Hunter attempting to catch Red Sox David Ortiz‘s grand slam home run.

    The Boston Red Sox are not a particularly likable franchise anymore. They were, prior to 2004, when they hadn’t won a World Series in almost a century. But since then, they’ve become insufferable, surpassed only by the Yankees. This is why we loved it when they imploded in 2011. Guys eating fried chicken and drinking […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/27/2013 — Shane Victorino

    The Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles kicked off a three-game set last night that could very well determine which of these two teams—along with the Tampa Bay Rays—will finish atop the AL East.  And following last night’s offensive outburst from Shane Victorino, it appears as though the Red Sox are now in the driver’s […]

    This Day In Sports History (August 6th) — Carl Yastrzemski

    It was on this day in 1989 that the Boston Red Sox retired the #8 formerly worn by Carl Yastrzemski.  Yastrzemski spent his entire 23 year career with Boston and joined Bobby Doerr (#1), Joe Cronin (#4), Johnny Pesky (#6), Ted Williams (#9), Jim Rice (#14) and Carlton Fisk (#27) as the only players to […]

    Someone Was Making it Rain at a Baseball Game Again (Video)

    On Monday, we told you how a company called 5K Tailgate “made it rain” from the upper deck during a Mariners game at Safeco Field.  Last night, it was raining money once again at an MLB ballpark. On second thought, perhaps it would be more appropriate if we said it was “spitting” money, as a […]

    A couple months back, NBA free agent Jason Collins made history when he came out as gay in a Sports Illustrated article, thus becoming the first openly gay pro athlete in United State professional sports. It was a pretty big deal, and it elicited both criticism and praise. Of course, one of the most notable […]

    Yesterday’s Sunday Night Baseball showdown between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox turned into a Sunday night weather report in the sixth inning, as play was halted twice due to rain before finally being called. But not even a delay in the action could prevent the highlights from rolling in.  Check out […]

    David Ortiz to Boston Red Sox Fans: “This Is Our F*cking City”

    It was an emotional day at Fenway Park on Saturday, as the Boston Red Sox played their first home game since the tragic events at Monday’s Boston Marathon.  Most of those in attendance put their emotions on display in a safe-for-work manner, whether it be through the use of signs, by chanting “U-S-A,” or by […]

    Last Wednesday, just two days after the Boston Marathon Bombing, Bruins fans encapsulated the strength of their city by coming together and singing the Star Spangled Banner in unison during the B’s first home game since the tragic act of terrorism. On Saturday, it was Red Sox Nation’s chance to put Boston’s strength on display, […]
