One of the more interesting and unexpected conversations I've had this year was with Dave Trembley . It would be tough to quibble with the job that Trembley has done in his first full year as manager of the Orioles. After the Red Sox beat them by a 6-3 count last night in Charm City, Baltimore is...

First of all, some of you have asked Sox questions which I will answer later today. I would like to get a few more so we can make an entire entry out of it, so keep them coming. Clay Buchholz and Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell were hunkered around one of the many laptops strewn throughout the...

BALTIMORE -- Sleep, hah! Our boys Carlson Mozdiez and Tim Murphy didn't get a wink of it last night while toiling in the WEEI.com East Coast office to this baby up and running, so why should I relent to my growing eye crusties.

Prior to Sunday's game, Tim Wakefield said that he threw 25 times from 75 feet "without any pain." The development stood in marked contract to the lingering effects of a similar injury last year. From the time he missed a start at the beginning of September through the end of the season, Wakefield...

So just who was taken ahead of Jason Bay in the 2000 draft? As mentioned in today's story , Bay's availability in the 22nd round that year wasn't the result of some absurd demands for piles of cash. He ended up signing for just $1,000. The development is made all the more remarkable by the...

If you can guess which Red Sox player embraced that phrase as a portion of his mantra, you could win a Dustin Pedroia bobblehead doll.
