A few pitchers batting and some fluky homers later, we’re back from the hell that is interleague to play the New York Yankees. Sox have a tough road ahead.
- Your wristwatch? He’ll have it. That gold ring? He’ll take that too. Jacoby Ellsbury was stealing everything last night in Philadelphia. (Jacoby Ellsbury paces Sox with record-setting night)
- It took a while for him to get back, but he didn’t waste a moment getting back to work. Franklin Morales was doing work on the mound last night. (Morales makes it count against Phillies)
- Let’s face it, throwing out runners has never been Jarrod Saltalamacchia‘s strong suit. But over the last couple weeks, we’ve seen some promising improvement. (While Jacoby Ellsbury runs wild, Jarrod Saltalamacchia delivers for Red Sox)
- Players like Dustin Pedroia hide their injuries all the time. But why? Because they’re simply human. They want to win. And that’s all that matters. (A Look At Why Players Are So Secretive About These Injuries)
- When it comes to sustaining injuries, however, David Ross feels that you should have the best protection possible. So he went and got it. (High-tech head protection for Ross)
- Once more, the Red Sox are back in the Bronx. And while Jon Lester usually studies a fellow left-handed pitcher, this time, he’ll have to go his own way. (Usually, Lester takes his cues from Sabathia)
- He’s almost baaaaaaaaaaack! Shane Victorino is close to being back to that Flyin’ Hawaiian he always was. Only a few days, and he’ll be ready. (Shane Victorino nearing rehab assignment)
- You know what other Red Sox are really good? The Pawtucket kind. They’re just chock-full of prospects down there. (A Few Good PawSox)
Baseball frustration, thy name is Tony Massarotti. Apparently 5 steals aren’t that impressive.
