Dustin Pedroia

  1. 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…

  2. Dustin Pedroia has a torn thumb muscle, could miss 3-4 weeks

    May 30, 2012, 8:49 AM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia

    Dustin Pedroia sat for last night’s Red Sox-Tigers game due to a thumb injury. After the game, we learned what the injury actually was: Pedroia has torn abductor muscle in right thumb. Will try to hit with it tomorrow; if he can’t likely out 3-4 weeks. #RedSoxTalk — Sean McAdam(@Sean_McAdam) May 30, 2012 Because that’s…

  3. Dustin Pedroia out of Red Sox lineup with thumb injury

    pedroia ap wide

    Dustin Pedroia, who left yesterday’s game after jamming his right thumb, is absent from the Red Sox’s starting lineup tonight. He’s considered day-to-day and it’s possible Pedroia could make an appearance off the bench, but in the meantime Nick Punto is starting at second base and batting ninth against Justin Verlander and the Tigers. Pedroia…

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

    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…

  5. Benches clear in Rays-Red Sox game

    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…

  6. Andre Ethier not putting deadline on contract talks with Dodgers

    During the midst of the Frank McCourt mess, there were rumblings that Andre Ethier would look to join his friend Dustin Pedroia in Boston when he became a free agent after this season. A lot has changed with the first-place Dodgers (who won their sixth straight game on Tuesday night) since then, and Ethier apparently…

  7. David Ortiz doesn’t give a [expletive] about what you think makes a leader

    May 22, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    David Ortiz

    David Ortiz has, what I think anyway, is some righteous anger. It came out last night after the Sox beat the Orioles, and it came in response to reports that he called a closed-door meeting a couple of weeks ago in which the hitters yelled at the pitchers. Since that meeting, by the way, the…

  8. Chris Davis goes 0-for-8, gets the win in 17-inning game

    May 6, 2012, 7:46 PM EDT

    Chris Davis

    It wasn’t pretty, but in many ways, Chris Davis had the most remarkable day on a baseball field that I can ever remember. Starting at DH for the Orioles, Davis fanned in his first five at-bats, hit into a double play in his sixth and grounded out in his seventh before moving to the mound…

  9. Ryan Braun hits three homers then settles for a triple

    May 1, 2012, 1:21 AM EDT

    Ryan Braun

    Ryan Braun hit three homers and then tripled at Petco Park in leading the Brewers to an 8-3 win over the Padres on Monday. Braun struggled this spring while dealing with a possible 50-game steroids suspension that was later overturned, but he’s been locked in since Opening Day. He’s now tied for second in the…

  10. Phil Humber far from perfect in loss to Red Sox

    AP Phil Humber

    Phil Humber tossed the 21st perfect game in MLB history Saturday against the Mariners, but things were different from the very first batter tonight against the Red Sox. Humber walked leadoff man Mike Aviles before striking out Ryan Sweeney swinging. After Aviles stole second base, Dustin Pedroia singled and Adrian Gonzalez delivered an RBI double.…

  11. Postgame drama in Boston: Bobby V part of closed-door meeting, players refuse to talk

    bobby v reuters

    The home clubhouse at Fenway Park was not the most relaxing of places Saturday evening after the Red Sox blew a 9-0 lead to the Yankees in an eventual 15-9 loss, falling to 4-10 on the year. “I think we’ve hit bottom,” first-year Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said in his postgame chat. “That’s what…

  12. Clay Buchholz gives up five homers in loss to Yankees

    Apr 20, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    Clay Buchholz, Eric Chavez

    Two pitchers have given up five homers in a game this season. Both have been Red Sox. Clay Buchholz joined Josh Beckett in the exclusive club Friday, surrendering five solo homers in a 6-2 loss to the Yankees on the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park’s opening. On the plus side, Buchholz’s start was pretty good for…

  13. Curtis Granderson hits three homers in first four innings

    Apr 19, 2012, 10:30 PM EDT

    Curtis Granderson

    Curtis Granderson had three homers in four innings and then singled in his remaining two at-bats Thursday as the Yankees topped the Twins 7-6. Granderson, who entered with three homers on the year, took Anthony Swarzak deep in the first and second innings and then launched his third homer off reliever Jeff Gray in the…

  14. Youkilis, Pedroia respond to Bobby V’s comments

    Apr 16, 2012, 9:35 AM EDT

    Bobby Valentine Reuters

    Not surprisingly, Kevin Youkilis was asked about Bobby Valentine’s comment that Youk was not “physically or emotionally into the game.”  Rob Bradford of WEEI has his comments: “That’s not what I see. I go out every day and play as hard as I can. I take every ground ball in the morning, take every at-bat…

  15. Bobby Valentine: Kevin Youkilis is not “physically or emotionally into the game”

    Apr 16, 2012, 8:09 AM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    Bobby Valentine went on a local radio show in Boston last night and said this about Kevin Youkilis: “I don’t think he’s as physically or emotionally into the game as he has been in the past for some reason. But [on Saturday] it seemed, you know, he’s seeing the ball well, got those two walks,…

  16. Tigers roar back in ninth, 11th to beat Red Sox 13-12

    Apr 8, 2012, 6:03 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Alex Avila got barely a sliver of a 2-2 curveball that would have ended the game. On the next pitch, he got a whole lot more of another curve, hitting a walkoff homer to give the Tigers a 13-12 victory over the Red Sox and a three-game sweep in Detroit. Meanwhile, the Red Sox’s worst-case…

  17. Jose Valverde: 49-for-49 in saves in 2011, blows one on Opening Day, vultures win

    Apr 5, 2012, 4:21 PM EDT

    Valverde_Jose

    UPDATE: Yup, he vultured it!  After blowing his first save of the season, Jose Valverde gets the win when Mark Melancon couldn’t keep the Tigers off the bases and Alfredo Aceves couldn’t keep Austin Jackson from singling home the winning run. 4:08 PM: Jose Valverde was absolutely perfect for the Tigers last year, saving all 49…

  18. And now, the top 20 jerseys sold

    Apr 5, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals' Freese watches his game winning home run with Texas Rangers relief pitcher Lowe during the 11th inning in Game 6 of MLB's World Series baseball championship in St. Louis

    MLB and the MLBPA just released the list of the top 20 jerseys sold in the past year. The list contains the usual gang you’d expect. Except I was somewhat surprised at David Freese at number 20, but I guess that World Series homer was quite the moment for Cards fans. Anyway: 1.    Derek Jeter, New…

  19. Quote of the day: Dustin Pedroia on hitting leadoff, or something

    Mar 5, 2012, 5:52 PM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia

    He doesn’t look the part, but Dustin Pedroia is a California boy at heart.

  20. Clay Buchholz is healthy, aiming for 200-inning season

    Feb 16, 2012, 3:07 AM EDT

    buchholz-120215.standard[1]

    Some good news for Red Sox fans: Clay Buchholz is healthy, and he’s feeling so good that he’s hoping to top 200 innings for the first time in his career. The right-hander, an All-Star in 2010, pitched only 82 2/3 innings in 2011 and missed more than half the season with a back injury. Boston…

    The top 10 at second base is led by the one player at the position I have projected to hit .300 this year: .882 – Robinson Cano (Yankees) – 638 AB – .882 in 2011 .859 – Ian Kinsler (Rangers) – 560 AB – .832 in 2011 .855 – Chase Utley (Phillies) – 532 AB…

    Today the MLB players association released the list of 30 candidates for their annual “Heart and Hustle” award that’s “presented to an active player who demonstrates a passion for the game of baseball and best embodies the values, spirit, and traditions of the game.” A few things about the candidates list stood out to me…
