Video: Red Sox Reporter Guerin Austin Gets Soaked In Powerade Shower, Appears Ready To Cry

The Red Sox keep dousing their on-field reporter, Guerin Austin, in Powerade.  Boston has soaked Austin in celebratory post-game showers multiple times over the last month and it happened again today. This might’ve been the worst one, too.  The Red Sox beat the White Sox, 8-7, on a walkoff win in the 10th inning. Following the win, Austin interviewed the man responsible for the...

Is Rick Porcello for Real?

The Red Sox have a clear objective heading into this summer’s trade season: improve their starting pitching. Sure, grabbing a left-handed outfielder to pair with Chris Young would be fantastic. And yes, solidifying the bullpen would go a long way towards locking a playoff spot down the stretch. Those aren’t priorities, though. This team needs another starter in the same way...

Hanley Ramirez Has a Message for his Critics

Hanley Ramirez’s bat has been missing like the lost ark for some time now. So when he belted a line drive home run off Jose Quintana in the sixth inning of tonight’s game — a game we eventually lost — it seemed like a good thing. But Hanley wasn’t done. Upon returning to the dugout, he hijacked the NESN cameras, offering a bit of performance art that I could only interpret...

WATCH: Hanley Ramirez has funny message for haters after homer

BOSTON — Hanley Ramirez apparently has been listening to those criticizing his poor performance at the plate this season. After going a combined 0-for-8 with five strikeouts in consecutive losses to the Chicago White Sox on Monday and Tuesday, Ramirez snapped his slump Wednesday by launching a Jose Quintana fastball into the Boston bullpen for a solo home run. Although Ramirez...

The Red Sox Can’t Solve Their Home Run Problem

Look, it’s no secret that the Red Sox starting pitching staff is mostly not great. You’ve heard it said many times in just as many ways. You have David Price, who has been decent at times but had a horrible start, and the probable All-Star in Steven Wright. Then there’s a gap, and there’s Rick Porcello. Then there’s a huge chasm, and you have Eduardo Rodriguez, Clay Buchholz...

David Ortiz not second-guessing retirement in midst of tremendous season

Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz is going into retirement with a bang, but it may be taking a toll on the aging slugger. Ortiz previously announced the 2016 baseball season will be his last season, but the way he has been tearing it up in the batter’s box has left some Boston fans hopeful he may have a change of heart. That will not be the case, according to Ortiz, as he is feeling...

Steven Wright’s the Best In the Worst Red Sox Loss

Worst loss of the year? Hell, yeah. We can call this the worst loss of the year. Because any time your team has the bases loaded and nobody out, down by one slim run in the bottom of the ninth with the hometown crowd at your back, you have got to win that game. No exceptions, no excuses. Especially when scoring one measly run and winning the game would have given the much-deserved...

Remembering Dad, and His Love of the Red Sox, on Father’s Day

I wrote this back in 2011, five years after my dad passed. And I’ve re-posted it pretty much every year since then.
