Watch: Daniel Nava picked off after lazy baserunning

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava’s lack of hustle was a real momentum-killer during the team’s 5-1 loss to the Yankees. In the fifth inning of the game, with NYY leading, 2-0, Nava singled to center and was looking to start a potential rally and help the Sox get on the board. But after taking a pretty big lead at first base, he decided to just stroll back toward the bag as Hiroki...

First Annual 'Under The Radar' Award To Nava

This year, FenwayNation is inaugurating a new award—the FN Under the Radar Award. Each year, we will name a Red Sox player who made significant contributions to the success of the team—but didn't get a lot of media and fan recognition for it.
