    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…

    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…

  3. The Wilson Defensive Awards were announced last night

    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…

  4. 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. Any requests for players not covered can be made in the comments. 1. Robinson Cano – Yankees Projection: .309/.362/.520, 30 HR,…

    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…

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

    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…

    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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

    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.…

  13. Red Sox play spoiler; Yankees, Orioles tied again

    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…

    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.…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  18. 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,…

  19. Yankees hit five homers, top Red Sox 6-4

    Red Sox owner John Henry sent an email to the Boston beat writers on Wednesday morning denying a claim made by Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports that a number of star players, including Dustin Pedroia and Adrian Gonzalez, asked for manager Bobby Valentine to be fired in a closed-door meeting last month with the organization’s higher-ups.

I mean, that’s the bottom line. I’m not going to blame anything on Bobby, and I don’t think anyone else is. It’s on the players.…

  22. Can the Red Sox keep both Adrian Gonzalez and Bobby Valentine?

    Aug 14, 2012, 7:24 PM EDT

    Adrian Gonzalez, Bobby Valentine

    It was mostly “no comment” in the Red Sox clubhouse this afternoon after the Yahoo! Sports report stating that Red Sox players met with ownership to try to get Bobby Valentine fired as manager. CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty has the quotes: “I just want to play baseball, man,” Dustin Pedroia said, declining to confirm or deny…

  23. Jason Varitek for Red Sox manager

    Aug 14, 2012, 5:55 PM EDT

    Jason Varitek

    I tried this nine months ago with little support. Let’s see if it flies better now. Terry Francona lost the Red Sox clubhouse. Bobby Valentine never had it in the first place. What the Red Sox seem to want is one of their own running the team, and who is more one of their own…

    Angels 15, Rangers 8: Kendrys Morales hit homers from each side of the plate in the sixth inning — one of which was a grand slam — and drove in six runs overall as the Angels make mincemeat out of the Rangers. Roy Oswalt got tattooed. Between that, Cliff Lee trade rumors and Roy Halladay‘s…
