With a run-scoring double by Robinson Cano , the Sox have now allowed 16 runs tonight, second highest yield of the season. Devern Hansack has just entered the game.

Alfredo Aceves (whom I sometimes accidently type in as "Aveces") may be cursing Zeus for his mixed fortunes tonight. On the one hand, Aceves got tagged for four runs, five hits and four walks in his four innings of work tonight, and so it might be a bit of a stretch to say that he "deserved" to...

The purpose underlying the abuse absorbed by the Red Sox pitching staff has just come to light. Yankees shortstop Cody Ransom scorched a homer just inside the Fisk Pole (for those who forgot, the pole was officially given that designation by the Sox in 2005) and just over the Wall to push New York'...

Even with Tampa Bay losing 5-3 in the bottom of the seventh, the Red Sox are not playing like a team desperate to win. They decided to spare Daisuke Matsuzaka the start, they are currently leaving David Aardsma on the hill to get beaten around (shortstop Cody Ransom, brought in to replace Derek...
