    Boston Red Sox v San Francisco Giants

    We’ve heard it a million times now: the Red Sox changed the clubhouse culture for the better when they brought in Shane Victorino, Mike Napoli, Jonny Gomes and Ryan Dempster over the winter.

    Andrew Bailey isn’t getting it done for the Sox in the ninth inning, with the whalkoff homer he surrendered to Jhonny Peralta last night the latest hiccup. So what should the Sox do?

  20. 2013 MLB Draft: Round 6-10 notes – Braves GM picks his son

    Jun 7, 2013, 8:11 PM EDT

    Kyle Wren, Brandon Hohl

    - One big thing to remember here: the new draft rules that kicked in last year really sucked the air out of these rounds. Instead of going for upside guys, a lot of teams are drafting college seniors in rounds 5-10 and then trying to sign them well under slot, freeing up money for more…

    Jacoby Ellsbury,  Jimmy Rollins

    Jacoby Ellsbury sat out his second straight game last night.
