    A frustrated John Lackey directed his anger toward Nelson Cruz and his 2013 PED suspension after the Red Sox fell back to nine games under .500 in the second half of Saturday’s doubleheader against the Orioles. Key word in this post: convenient.

    White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu entered play Tuesday with 22 home runs — third in MLB behind Edwin Encarnacion (24) of the Blue Jays and Nelson Cruz (23) of the Orioles. But the sensational rookie slugger doesn’t have any desire to strut his stuff in the 2014 Home Run Derby at Target Field.
