1. Who’s better — Jason Bay or Xavier Nady?

    The Pittsburgh Pirates must not have wanted the Red Sox to feel left out after Damaso Marte and Xavier Nady went to the New York Yankees. A few short days later, the Red Sox had their own Pirate to do battle against the ne’er-do-wells in the Bronx...

  4. Time To Rest Mikey

    Just to put this disclaimer out there: Mike Lowell is probably my favorite player on the Boston Red Sox. I’m ecstatic we re-signed Mike to a three-year deal to remain at the hot corner in Boston...

    Portland’s Aaron Bates only was 1-for-4 Friday night against the Connecticut Defenders. But the “1” was significant. Bates crushed a two-run, 410-foot homer to dead center in the fifth that capped a rally and helped give the Sea Dogs a 7-5 victory...

    Sean Casey flew out to right field to end the game stranding base runners on every base with the Boston Red Sox down by one run in the top of the ninth inning. I find it weird that Jason Bay had another chance to be the hero...
