The Red Sox salvaged the weekend series in Chicago by taking the final 2 games from the Cubs, but at 33-33, they still trail the AL-East-leading Yankees by a whopping 8 games. Not good. Throw in the fact that they just placed Josh Beckett on the DL with shoulder issues, this does not bode […]
You have to give the Red Sox credit for battling through an 8-6 win over the 1st place Orioles in Camden Yards in Baltimore on Monday night. After taking 2 of 3 from the Phillies over the weekend, this was definitely a potential let-down game. But with a chance to get back to .500 […]

The injury occurred back on March 21st, but Bailey continued to pitch despite the discomfort. Recovery from a ulnar collateral ligament surgery typically takes about 3 months, so Bailey is […]
We’ll get our first taste of live action when Daniel Bard square off against Alfredo Aceves today at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers. We’ll also probably see Drake Britton, Jesse Carlson and Tony Pena, Jr. at some point in the game too.
We’ll keep you posted how things go in the game. Real games […]
