    Bobby Valentine

    In news that will surprise absolutely no one, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports has some very juicy details about Red Sox players not loving their time with manager Bobby Valentine. According to Passan players “blasted Valentine to owners John Henry and Larry Lucchino during a heated meeting called after a text message was sent by…

  2. Orioles’ Manny Machado homers his way to history in first four games

    Aug 13, 2012, 4:21 PM EDT

    Manny Machado AP

    Based on his modest numbers in the minors it seemed like a questionable decision for the Orioles to promote Manny Machado from Double-A to the majors just a month after his 20th birthday, but there’s nothing questionable about his first taste of the big leagues. Machado went 2-for-4 with a triple in his MLB debut,…

  3. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 6, 2012, 5:42 AM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Tigers 10, Indians 8: I was at this game, and I gotta tell ya, until the 9th inning it was one of the more lame, butt-dragging tie games you’ll ever see. Omar Infante and Austin Jackson kept hitting, but apart from that the highlight until then was Joe West getting all ejecty for no good…

  4. Padres lose hot-hitting rookie catcher Yasmani Grandal to oblique injury

    Aug 1, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Yasmani Grandal AP

    Rookie catcher Yasmani Grandal has provided a huge spark for the Padres since being called up on June 2, hitting .312 with five homers and a .947 OPS in 24 games, but now he’ll miss at least two weeks with a strained oblique muscle. He’ll be eligible to return from the disabled list in the…

  5. Dustin Pedroia: “The first hundred games have been (expletive)”

    The Red Sox lost 10-3 in last night’s series opener against the Yankees. It was their second straight loss and their sixth in their last seven. They now sit at 49-51 through the first hundred games of the season and currently find themselves in last place in the American League East. Via Scott Lauber of…

    Dustin Pedroia, Cody Ross

    After 15 days off due to a thumb injury, Dustin Pedroia was activated from the disabled list Thursday and will be back in the lineup for the final game of the series against the White Sox. Mauro Gomez was sent down to make room, as the Red Sox opted to keep both Pedro Ciriaco and…

  7. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 17, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman wipes sweat from his forehead during the first inning of the Orioles' MLB baseball game against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis

    Twins 19, Orioles 7: This was a multifaceted butt-whupping, but it got started with Chris Tillman’s butt. Which is a shame considering that five short months ago he was in the Best Shape of His Life. All of those runs for the Twins despite hitting only one homer. It was a Gashouse Gorillas-style conga line…

  8. David Ortiz to undergo MRI on right Achilles on Tuesday

    David Ortiz Getty

    Everything appeared to be falling into place for the Red Sox on Monday night after Adrian Gonzalez delivered a go-ahead three-run homer off White Sox left-hander Leyson Septimo in the bottom of the eighth inning, plating David Ortiz and Carl Crawford, who was making his long-awaited season debut. However, the club was dealt another tough…

  9. HBT Weekend Wrap

    grilling

    I stopped doing these for some reason. Sorta forgot about them. But it seemed like a lot happened this weekend, so for those of you with lives that don’t entail them being tied to the Internet all weekend, here’s what you missed: Bill James doubles down on the Joe Paterno defense. It’s like watching a…

  10. Adrian Gonzalez hurt his back being nice to a kid

    Jul 14, 2012, 8:03 PM EDT

    Adrian Gonzalez

    Maybe the Red Sox can add fraternizing with children to the ban list. Adrian Gonzalez is sitting out a second straight game Saturday because of a sore back, the cause of which finally came to light today. According to the first baseman, Gonzalez was at the mall Friday afternoon when he “ran into a family with…

  11. MLB yelled at the Red Sox for replaying a close play on the Fenway scoreboard

    Jul 8, 2012, 2:52 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    In the bottom of the sixth of the first game of yesterday’s Sox-Yankees doubleheader, David Ortiz was doubled off first base when Adrian Gonzalez flied out to Andruw Jones. It was a close play and, on first glance, it looked like Mark Teixeira was pulled off the bag when leaping for the relay throw. So,…

  12. Robinson Cano picks his AL Home Run Derby team

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    There was no talking Josh Hamilton into taking part in the Home Run Derby, so Robinson Cano went with some pretty good fallbacks Monday: Jose Bautista, Prince Fielder and Mark Trumbo. Bautista leads the AL with 26 homers at the moment, one more than Hamilton. Cano and Trumbo both have 20 apiece, while Fielder lags…

  13. Franklin Gutierrez continues to be snakebit, gets hit in the face with a pickoff throw

    Jun 29, 2012, 11:21 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Seattle Mariners

    Franklin Gutierrez hadn’t played all year until a couple of weeks ago because of multiple health problems including, but not limited to, a torn pectoral muscle and a heel injury. In the past he had some awful stomach intestinal illness. He just can’t catch a break. And it’s not getting better. From last night’s game: Gutierrez led…

  14. Felix Hernandez strikes out 13 Red Sox in shutout victory

    Jun 29, 2012, 8:49 AM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    Between this, the Giants-Reds game and my well-known yet uncontrollable pitching fetish, I am really not liking living in the eastern time zone today. If NBC would act on my long-standing request to set me up in a nice little flat in that interwar Pacific Heights co-op I would have been awake for both of…

    Get excited, Cubs fans. For once this year. According to beat writer Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune, “speculation is” that the Northsiders are preparing to promote 22-year-old first base prospect Anthony Rizzo from Triple-A Iowa in time for Tuesday night’s game against the Mets. Rizzo has registered a sparkling .355/.416/.722 batting line with 23…

    Kevin Youkilis Reuters

    UPDATE, 9:35 PM ET: According to Rosenthal, the Indians are now considered a “longshot” to land Youkilis and the Dodgers have only had “minimal contact” with Boston’s front office. It sounds like it might come down to the White Sox and Pirates. 3:52 PM ET: Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM…

  17. Cubs shut out Red Sox for first time in 94 years

    Jun 15, 2012, 5:58 PM EDT

    Ryan Dempster

    The last time the Cubs shut out the Red Sox, Fenway Park was six years old. This year, it’s celebrating its centennial. Ryan Dempster blanked the Red Sox for seven innings Friday as part of a 3-0 Cubs victory. It was the first time the Cubs had shut out Boston since Game 5 of the…

  18. Banged-up Red Sox give Will Middlebrooks shortstop reps

    Jun 1, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Will Middlebrooks

    Injuries have already forced the Red Sox to do some weird things defensively and now the possibility of Dustin Pedroia missing significant time with a thumb injury has led to rookie third baseman Will Middlebrooks getting work at shortstop. Middlebrooks hasn’t played the position since high school and in fact has never played a position…

  19. Joe Maddon: people throw at us intentionally; we never do it

    Joe Maddon Getty

    A commenter said yesterday that Joe Maddon often accuses other teams of throwing at his players but that he has never even once hinted that the Rays do the same. Here he was on a radio show yesterday talking about the Red Sox doing just that — and the Red Sox doing nothing — over…

  20. Boston’s banged-up outfield gets Ryan Sweeney back

    May 28, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Ryan Sweeney

    Ryan Sweeney passed his post-concussion tests and has been activated from the disabled list, giving the Red Sox a much-needed boost for their injury wrecked outfield. Prior to the concussion Sweeney had started 22 times in right field compared to six times in center field, but he’s in today’s lineup as the center fielder with…

  21. Joe Maddon calls throwing at Luke Scott “a weak, cowardly effort”

    May 26, 2012, 9:47 AM EDT

    Joe Maddon Getty

    Benches cleared in the top of the ninth inning of last night’s Rays-Red Sox game after Franklin Morales hit Luke Scott in the leg. No punches were thrown and no players were ejected, but Rays manager Joe Maddon was pretty incensed after his team went on to win the game 7-4. According to Marc Topkin…

  22. Benches clear in Rays-Red Sox game

    May 25, 2012, 10:34 PM EDT

    Luke Scott, Jarrod Saltalamacchia

    After Franklin Morales drilled Luke Scott in the top of the ninth — apparent retaliation for a plunking of Dustin Pedroia earlier — benches cleared in Friday’s game between the Rays and Red Sox at Fenway Park, which Tampa Bay went on to win 7-4. Some bad blood likely carried over from last week’s series…

  23. Adrian Gonzalez will continue to play right field

    May 23, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    adrian gonzalez ap

    Bobby Valentine was on WEEI in Boston this morning and said that he plans to start Adrian Gonzalez in right field again today with Kevin Youkilis covering first.  That will mark Gonzalez’s fourth game in right this year. Obviously not ideal, but given that the lifespan of a Red Sox outfielder this year is shorter…

  24. Red Sox lineup: Adrian Gonzalez in RF, Kevin Youkilis at 1B, Will Middlebrooks at 3B

    May 22, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Philadelphia Phillies

    With six outfielders on the disabled list and Kevin Youkilis coming off the shelf the Red Sox have gotten creative for tonight’s game against the Orioles, shifting Adrian Gonzalez to right field so Youkilis can play first base and Will Middlebrooks can remain at third base. Gonzalez, Youkilis, and Middlebrooks are batting 4-5-6 in Boston’s…

  25. Cody Ross out indefinitely with fractured bone in left foot

    May 21, 2012, 5:12 PM EDT

    Jose Molina, Cody Ross

    Cody Ross, who’s been playing every day in the Red Sox’s outfield because of injuries to Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury, is now joining them on the disabled list with a fractured bone in his left foot. There’s no timetable yet for his return, but manager Bobby Valentine indicated to reporters that the Red Sox…
