    You know that dream where you are running and running but are not actually getting anywhere. I know people have all sorts of theories about this dream and what it means. Some say it indicates that you have too many things going in your life and can’t quite keep up. Some say it’s the body…

  6. Red Sox’s turnaround more about incumbents than newcomers

    Sep 21, 2013, 12:15 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v San Francisco Giants

    We’ve heard it a million times now: the Red Sox changed the clubhouse culture for the better when they brought in Shane Victorino, Mike Napoli, Jonny Gomes and Ryan Dempster over the winter. And that’s certainly true. I imagine this has been the best Red Sox team to cover in several years, and they do,…

  8. Red Sox want to keep Jacoby Ellsbury, but worry about his price

    Sep 6, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    Jacoby Ellsbury

    Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury is having a great season, currently hitting .299 with a league-leading 52 stolen bases while playing outstanding defense. He’s a big reason why the Red Sox are 6.5 games in front of the Rays in first place in the AL East, and he will be a big part of their…

  9. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 6, 2013, 6:30 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles 3, White Sox 1: The Orioles win and, frankly, I’m going to credit playing at home. Yep, nothing like a home game. Makes all the difference. And if you think for a minute I’m irrationally beating this into the ground, go take a gander at the NFL Industrial Complex’s collective and concerted moaning and…

    Boston Red Sox Jacoby Ellsbury scores at home plate as New York Yankees Austin Romine cannot hold the throw in their MLB game in New York

    Call it “Deja Drew.” After the Red Sox let a five-run lead slip away, things were going all according to plan for the Yankees on Thursday. David Robertson pitched a perfect eighth up 8-7, and Mariano Rivera retired the first two batters he faced in the ninth. That’s when things unraveled. Mike Napoli, who was…

    Yankees' Rodriguez celebrates his solo home run against Red Sox's Dempster in the sixth inning of their MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    This one had a little bit of everything packed into a crisp four hours and 12 minutes. – After Boston grabbed a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first, Ryan Dempster drilled Alex Rodriguez with a 3-0 pitch to open the second. It was at least Dempster’s second attempt to hit him, but the…

    Aug 16, 2013, 11:05 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:13 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Texas Rangers

    That’s according to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal. The Rangers will consider just about anything as they attempt to improve before the deadline. That means Elvis Andrus. It means Joe Nathan. And it means the newly acquired Matt Garza, who was just picked up from the Cubs for four prospects nine days ago. Garza is 1-0 with…

  15. Jackie Bradley Jr. gets pulled from game, appears to be false alarm

    Jackie Bradley Jr.

    There’s nothing quite like twitter before the trade deadline: Jackie Bradley Jr lifted for a pinch hitter in 6th in Pawtucket. Nothing apparently wrong with him. Trade in works? — Gordon Edes (@GordonEdes) July 31, 2013 If there is a trade going down involving Bradley, it’s not for Peavy, source says — Gordon Edes (@GordonEdes)…

  16. Blown call from Jerry Meals, bad baseball doom Red Sox in loss

    Jul 30, 2013, 12:19 AM EDT

    Jerry Meals

    Make no mistake: the Red Sox played some pretty terrible baseball in losing 2-1 to the Rays on Monday. Still, a blown call at home plate in the bottom of the eighth cost them the tying run and, for that, Jerry Meals was to blame. Here’s the video: Meals admitted after the game that he…

  17. Evan Longoria, Stephen Strasburg lead All-Star snubs

    Jul 6, 2013, 8:21 PM EDT

    Evan Longoria

    No matter how bloated the All-Star rosters get, it’s never hard to find imperfections. This year, two of the AL’s top 10 performers to date have been left off for no good reason. For some reason, manager Jim Leyland’s squad took three catchers and four second basemen, but just two from third base, which has…

    Jun 23, 2013, 10:55 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Detroit Tigers

    Victor Martinez isn’t exactly known for his defense at first base, but the Tigers’ DH was happy to show it off in the sixth inning of today’s game against the Red Sox. With one out and the bases empty, center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury pulled a grounder that was destined for the corner in right field.…

  21. Jacoby Ellsbury is improving

    Jun 2, 2013, 12:12 PM EDT

    Jacoby Ellsbury,  Jimmy Rollins

    Jacoby Ellsbury sat out his second straight game last night. And may miss a third today given that the Sox have an offday tomorrow and giving him four straight days off to recover may be ideal, but his groin is doing much better according to John Farrell in the Boston Globe: “Not ruling out [Sunday]…

    Groundhog Day

    Pirates 1, Tigers 0: Jim Leyland was in the Virgin Islands once. He met a girl. they ate lobster, drank piña coladas. At sunset, they made love like sea otters. That was a pretty good day. Why couldn’t he get that day over, and over, and over? Or, well, at least two out of three days. It’d…

    May 23, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    Jacoby Ellsbury
