    With the Tampa Bay Rays trailing the New York Yankees by a score of 7-0 in the bottom of the eighth and the Boston Red Sox leading the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 during a rain delay in the seventh inning, Dan Shaughnessy uttered the words, “I think the one thing that we have eliminated tonight is […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/27/11 — Ryan Lavarnway

    On September 3rd, the Boston Red Sox held a nine game lead atop the AL Wild Card standings.  A terrible month of September has since caused that lead to evaporate, and they entered last night’s game against the Baltimore Orioles tied with the Tampa Bay Rays for the last remaining spot in the post-season.  The […]

    If you’re a baseball fan, then you are probably aware that the Boston Red Sox are hanging on for dear life in the American League Wild Card standings. On September 1, Boston was 8 ½ games ahead of Tampa Bay. Today, their lead over the Rays is just 1 lousy game. But Boston is not […]

    With their lead atop the American League wild card standings slowly fading away, the Boston Red Sox have been searching for some inspiration anywhere they can find it.  Last night their search took them back to the golden years of professional wrestling, as they welcomed two-time WWF Champion Ric Flair into their clubhouse prior to […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/13/11 — Dustin Pedroia

    If you gave the Boston Red Sox batters a choice of which starting pitcher in the Majors they would like to face most, there is a good chance they would choose Brandon Morrow of the Toronto Blue Jays.  Going into last night’s game, Morrow was posting a 13.83 ERA in three games this season against […]

    Big Papi’s Slide Comes Up Drastically Short (Video)

    David Ortiz isn’t exactly a threat on the base path.  One look at his 11 career stolen bases in 15 seasons makes that quite evident.  However, you would think the 6’4″, 230-pound designated hitter for the Boston Red Sox would have at least learned how to properly slide into second base at some point in […]

    After taking two of three games against the New York Yankees over the weekend, the Boston Red Sox were looking to extend their lead in the AL East as they traveled to Minnesota to take on the Twins.  Sox starter Tim Wakefield was in search of his 200th win, but he couldn’t get the job […]

    Infield Party At Fenway! (Video)

    The wall along third base at Fenway Park had everything you needed to start a party on Friday.  There was ice.  There was beer.  The only thing that was missing were the people.  Unfortunately, those people were on the other side of the wall, unwilling to take advantage of the beer vendor’s spillage and risk […]

    Picture Of The Day: Hold It Together Kid! (w/ Video)

    Yeah, Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Josh Beckett just came up to you and personally handed you a ball.  That’s great kid, but I’ve seen 12-year-old girls hold it together better than that while getting a kiss on the cheek from Justin Bieber. This emotional moment took place following Beckett’s warm-up session prior to today’s […]

    Here Is Another Cirque du Soleil Opening Pitch (Video)

    Three weeks ago the San Diego Padres invited a performer from Cirque du Soleil to throw out the opening pitch prior to their game against the Kansas City Royals.  It gained plenty of coverage on both sports blogs and sports news shows, and its success caused the Tampa Bay Rays to try something similar last […]

    It Was Raining Glass In Tropicana Field Last Night (Video)

    During their franchise’s 14 years of existence, the Tampa Bay Rays have never experienced a rain delay at home.  That is largely due to the fact that they have been playing within the enclosed dome of Tropicana Field.  But while the dome may be able to prevent any rain from falling onto the field and […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/17/11 — Josh Beckett

    The Boston Red Sox entered last night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays looking to remain 1.5 games up on the New York Yankees for top spot in the AL East.  Their offense didn’t do much to help their cause, but luckily they had Josh Beckett on the mound to bail them out for half […]
