From Jonny Gomes, fashion coordinator: The Red Sox just tweeted that Jonny Gomes ordered these and the team is planning to wear them to the White House! pic.twitter.com/OTCmO4M9nE — Matt Blanchette (@mattblanchette) March 26, 2014 I figure a lot of people are going to get mad at this, as there is a certain portion of…

Just about every ballpark you go to plays that Blake Shelton song, “Boys ’round here” during warmups or batting practice: Yeah the boys ’round here Drinking that ice cold beer Talkin’ ’bout girls, talkin’ ’bout trucks Runnin’ them red dirt roads out, kicking up dust The boys ’round here Sending up a prayer to the…

New season, new facial hair for Jonny Gomes: He done did it!! I might have to be next pic.twitter.com/UvSzToz5Yt — Mike Napoli (@MikeNapoli25) February 13, 2014 I mean to make no moral or personal comparisons between the two, but I feel like I’ve seen these pictures before.

On the one hand: my biggest objection to ever getting a tattoo is that I can’t think of anything I could commit to that I one day wouldn’t regret or be embarrassed by or something. Say what you want about Jonny Gomes‘ tattoo, but you know he’ll cherish the 2013 season and World Series until…

Daniel Nava spent most of the playoffs on the bench as the Red Sox chose to play Jonny Gomes over him against righties and lefties, but Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that Boston will be “stiff-arming any sort of trade proposal” for Nava this offseason.

Kevin Kernan’s column at the New York Post today is a treat. It praises the Red Sox’ approach and basically says “the Yankees and Mets need to do what the Red Sox just did if they want to win the World Series.” Which, yes, I will agree 100% that if the Yankees and Mets want…

There was a touching tribute by the Red Sox on their “rolling rally” through the streets of Boston this morning, as the World Champions made a special stop at the Boston Marathon finish line, the site of the bombings from this past April.

I just got an email from a P.R. person about some event Gillette is putting on Monday in which some of the Red Sox’ beards will be shaved: Following the World Series victory, Gillette is helping champions, MVP David Ortiz, Shane Victorino, Boston Police Officer Steve Horgan and one lucky bearded fan trim down and…

With Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, Stephen Drew and Jarrod Saltalamacchia all filing for free agency, the world champion Red Sox would seem to have a whole lot of flexibility this winter.
