    mike-scioscia-angels

    With an 8-4 loss to the Orioles this afternoon, the Angels dropped to 11-20 on the season, ahead of only the lowly Astros in the AL West. What was thought to be a promising season for the win-now Angels has become a nightmare due to injuries, a putrid starting rotation, and an ineffective start to…

  2. By the way, the Red Sox still think the Blue Jays are cheaters, too

    May 3, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Toronto Maple Leafs

    While Dirk Hayhurst and Jack Morris have chimed in, none of this “Clay Buchholz is cheating” talk is coming from Blue Jays players or management. And it probably won’t. The Blue Jays don’t want to go accusing someone of cheating and then have their own dirty laundry aired. The Red Sox, for instance, still seem…

    Joel Hanrahan Getty

    When Joel Hanrahan was activated from the disabled list earlier this week, Red Sox manager John Farrell decided to stick with Andrew Bailey in the closer role. That arrangement didn’t last long, as Hanrahan converted the save in tonight’s 3-1 win over the Blue Jays because Bailey was unavailable due to biceps soreness. Bailey told…

    As expected the Red Sox activated Joel Hanrahan from the disabled list after the reliever missed the past two weeks with a hamstring injury.

  8. Daniel Nava: a true American success story

    Apr 8, 2013, 5:55 PM EDT

    Daniel Nava

    Daniel Nava was the unlikeliest major leaguer in any starting lineup today. And it’s safe to say a lot of Red Sox fans were disappointed to see him starting over Jackie Bradley Jr. in left field in the Fenway Park season opener. Nava, though, rewarded manager John Farrell’s show of faith with a homer over…

    Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew was diagnosed with a concussion 10 days ago after getting beaned in the batting helmet by a pitch.

    David Ortiz Getty

    David Ortiz not playing in the Red Sox’s first 10 spring training games is no surprise as he comes back from the Achilles’ tendon injury that wrecked his 2012 season, but the fact that he still has soreness is potentially a reason to worry.

    Mike Napoli‘s hip problems cost him about $30 million after the Red Sox reworked his contract, but the good news is that he won’t be significantly behind the other hitters in camp.

    Adam Lind

    We’ve had a number of instances of players saying bad things about old managers or teammates lately.

    Joel Hanrahan

    Joel Hanrahan, who the Red Sox acquired from the Pirates last month, has avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $7.04 million.
