Gil Velazquez enjoyed a very warm reception here in the bottom of the second, as those who braved the torrent to make it to the ballpark offered a standing ovation to a career minor leaguer who just had his first big-league at-bat. Velazquez probably had a pretty decent adrenaline rush working--he...

News from afar: the Twins are getting smoked, 4-0, by the Royals (has Francisco Liriano really given up nine hits in three innings? whoaaaa), but Twins catcher Joe Mauer is 1-for-1, nudging his batting average north from .330 to .331. Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia  is sitting out tonight, and...

First pitch took place at 8:36pm. Before the Red Sox replaced the Fenway turf a few years ago, the drainage system would have never allowed this game to happen. Even so, it is a buzz-free atmosphere. Aside from a few perfunctory boos offered to Johnny Damon , there's no sense of blood lust. "Right...

The Red Sox ' decision to scratch Daisuke Matsuzaka  in favor of David Pauley seems a prudent gesture. Whenever a pitcher is supposed to take the bump on a night when the weather is miserable, one need only think back to 2002 to reflect on the potential risks involved. In the second game of the...

Rain delays can be fun! Really... we mean it... Just ask Mr. Met. Or the guy who created the Rainout Blog  (where I found the image of Mr. Met).  Actually, and sadly, don't ask the guy who created the Rainout Blog - looks like he pulled the plug on the enterprise this season. But enough of that...

If tonight's game is rained out, the Red Sox and Yankees are likely to play two on Sunday. I can't imagine that Ernie Banks was thinking of a meaningless twin-bill on the season's final day when he made his well known proclamation, but so be it. In such a scenario, Daisuke Matsuzaka would start on...

I do not own a car. Today, the few-minute trek to and from the sundry means of MBTA transportation were uniquely unpleasant. The likelihood of baseball at Fenway Park , according to my very unofficial and waterlogged assessment, seems poor. According to an official Sox statement, there is "a...

Game Story: Lester Spins Fenway Magic in Sox Win Red Sox manager Terry Francona was walking through the tunnel leading from the clubhouse to the field  prior to Tuesday night's game at Fenway Park when he ran into Jed Lowrie . The night before Lowrie had struck out swinging to end a Sox loss,...

Sorry, I just checked the White Sox score (3-1 Chicago) so I had Hawk ringing in my head. Red Sox win, 6-1. In their final regular season game (OK, I'm giving too much of a tip of the chapeau to those who predict Mother Nature's wiping out of the weekend series), the Red Sox went to 33-17 since Aug...
