  1. Blue Jays two-hit Red Sox in 5-0 shutout

    Apr 6, 2013, 3:56 PM EDT

    J.A. Happ

    J.A. Happ probably would have opened the season as the most well-compensated pitcher in Triple-A if Ricky Romero hadn’t struggled so mightily this spring. Inserted into the Blue Jays’ rotation instead, Happ struck out six in 5 1/3 innings and combined with three relievers on a two-hit shutout of the Red Sox on Saturday. The…

  2. Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera help lead Yankees to first win of season

    Apr 4, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    Andy Pettitte

    It felt like old times tonight in the Bronx, as Andy Pettitte tossed eight innings of one-ball and Mariano Rivera notched the save as the Yankees topped the Red Sox 4-2 for the team’s first victory of the 2013 season. Pettitte was in control for most of the night, scattering eight hits while striking out…

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season.

  4. Report: Red Sox could trade Jacoby Ellsbury, re-sign Cody Ross

    Dec 4, 2012, 8:25 PM EDT

    Jacoby Ellsbury

    Upside, shmupside. Sources told the Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham that the Red Sox are considering trading Jacoby Ellsbury and re-signing Cody Ross to play right field, with the newly signed Shane Victorino taking over in center field. Ellsbury, the runner-up for AL MVP honors in 2011, is a free agent after the season and is…

  5. Red Sox lineup a whole lot deeper with Mike Napoli in the middle

    Dec 3, 2012, 11:43 AM EDT

    Mike Napoli

    Mike Napoli to Boston has long seemed like destiny. That he’s been such a roaring success at Fenway is part of it: Napoli has hit .306/.397/.710 with seven homers in 62 lifetime at-bats in Boston. The Red Sox initially tried to acquire Napoli in 2010, when the Angels weighed parting with him before the deadline.…

    The Red Sox have plenty of holes to fill on their roster this winter, but they hope to make some time to keep one of their cornerstone players in the fold for the long haul. Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston was told by several league sources that the Red Sox plan to discuss a possible…

  7. Dustin Pedroia is philosophical about the Bobby Valentine era

    Nov 6, 2012, 5:02 PM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia Getty

    The first really public strife involving Bobby Valentine and the Sox last year came when Dustin Pedroia called him out in the media for making disparaging comments about Kevin Youkilis (“that’s not how we go about our stuff here”). In light of that — and in light of other rumored issues between Pedroia and Valentine…

  8. The Wilson Defensive Awards were announced last night

    Nov 5, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Michael Bourn

    We mentioned this last week, but last night the inaugural Wilson Defensive Awards were announced on MLB Network. As we said previously: sponsored awards like this are kind of “whatever,” but in a world where people still take the Gold Glove awards seriously, I’m cool with any viable competitor. As you’ll recall, there were awards for the…

  9. Gold Glove finalists announced

    I stopped caring about the Gold Glove awards sometime between designated hitter Rafael Palmeiro winning one as a “first baseman” and Derek Jeter winning five as a “shortstop” but MLB has announced three (or four) finalists per league at each position and here they are: (Note: Coaches and managers vote for the Gold Glove award…

    This is the third entry in a position-by-position review of my 2012 projections. Along with looking at my top preseason top 10 (for fantasy purposes) from each spot, I’m highlighting some other interesting players.

    Tim Bogar, who spent this season as Bobby Valentine’s bench coach, responded to the former manager’s comments about the Red Sox coaching staff undermining him by saying Valentine is “completely wrong.” “That bothers me because of what the coaches went through this year and what we dealt with,” Bogar said, via Joe McDonald of ESPN…

  12. An early guess at Team USA’s WBC lineup

    Oct 17, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    If Derek Jeter‘s broken ankle didn’t take him out of the mix for the World Baseball Classic the moment it happened, today’s news that he needs surgery definitely makes the issue moot. But as unfortunate as Jeter’s injury is for the Yankees, it’s not necessarily a bad thing for Team USA in next spring’s World…

  13. Dustin Pedroia has surgery to repair torn finger ligament

    Dustin Pedroia Reuters

    Dustin Pedroia underwent surgery yesterday to repair a torn ligament in his right pinky finger, which is not to be confused with the broken left ring finger that he played through in the Red Sox’s season finale. Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that Pedroia had a pin inserted into the right pinky finger that will…

  14. Great Moments in Metaphors: Bobby Valentine crashes his bike while texting Dustin Pedroia

    Bobby Valentine

    And with this, I think Bobby Valentine’s season in Hell is complete: In the final days of one of the most painful seasons of his career, Red Sox Manager Bobby Valentine on Tuesday lay entangled with his bicycle at the bottom of a ditch next to the Central Park Reservoir.  On the wet, slippery path, Valentine was reading a…

  15. Dustin Pedroia is playing tonight despite a broken finger

    Oct 2, 2012, 3:47 PM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia Reuters

    Dustin Pedroia broke the ring finger on his left hand Sunday, which naturally led to everyone assuming that he’d sit out the final three games of the season. Instead the former MVP is in the Red Sox’s lineup tonight, playing second base and batting second against the Yankees. And why is he playing through a…

  16. Wow, apparently the Orioles were mad about the Red Sox lineup last night

    Oct 2, 2012, 12:40 PM EDT

    Che-Hsuan Lin, Danny Valencia, Dustin Pedroia

    I was being snarky yesterday when I said that the O’s were gonna be upset at the Red Sox Pawtucktey lineup yesterday. After all, the O’s are pros. They know they can’t talk about that kind of thing. Take care of your own business and it doesn’t matter who the Red Sox run out against…

  17. Phil Hughes pitches Yankees past Red Sox

    Sep 13, 2012, 10:52 PM EDT

    Phil Hughes

    The Yankees held serve with the Orioles by beating the Red Sox 2-0 in a breezy 3 hours, 11 minutes on Thursday night. The win kept the Yankees in a tie for first place in the AL East. It was the lowest scoring game between the two teams in 59 games dating back to Aug.…

    Sep 11, 2012, 10:51 PM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia, Robinson Cano

    Boston’s two remaining stars did their thing Tuesday, and the AL East is again all knotted at the top. With the Orioles having already topped the Rays 9-2, the Red Sox got a game-winning single from Jacoby Ellsbury in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Yankees 4-3. Ellsbury ended up 4-for-5 on his…

    aceves, pedroia

    Drama continues to surround this Red Sox team. According to Sean McAdam of CSN New England, second baseman Dustin Pedroia and right-hander Alfredo Aceves got into a “heated argument” on Saturday in the visitors dugout at Oakland’s O.Co Coliseum. It was all verbal, but they eventually had to be separated by third base coach Jerry Royster.…

  20. Dustin Pedroia attempts to explain away every Red Sox controversy of 2012

    Aug 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia Reuters

    At some point you figure it’s best to just be quiet about things and hope the bad stuff ends as the season collapses.  But Dustin Pedroia put on his media pants yesterday and went on at length with Rob Bradford of WEEI and explained his side and/or the team’s side of every notable Red Sox…

  21. Updated: Where would the Red Sox go minus Gonzalez, Crawford, Beckett?

    Aug 24, 2012, 8:55 PM EDT

    Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez

    The deal isn’t yet official, but it looks like Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto are all Los Angeles bound in exchange for four minimum-salaried players and  free-agent-to-be James Loney. That would cut $58.25 million in 2013 salaries from Boston’s payroll and leave the Red Sox committed to only four players for…

  23. Angels beat the Red Sox in the stupidest game of 2012

    Aug 24, 2012, 12:08 AM EDT

    Pedro Ciriaco

    Craziest? Wildest? No, I’m sticking with stupidest. The Angels edged the Red Sox 14-13 in 10 innings Thursday. Some highlights: – Boston blew a six-run lead by giving up eight runs in the top of the third – The Angels put together said eight-run inning without the benefit of an extra-base hit. They did, however,…
