Terrible Human Swipes Foul Ball From Little Boy At Red Sox Game

This type of lowlight never fails to make me super angry, but this was. Not only does the grown ass man intentionally swipe the souvenir away from the little boy, he then proceeds to look him right in the eye as if to say “suck it, kid.” Since the kid was wearing a Yankees beanie, I’d have to imagine this horrible grown man was a Red Sox fan getting a little carried away with...

Daniel Nava Still In Red Sox’s 2014 Plans Despite Demotion To Triple-A

BOSTON — Go ahead. Count out Daniel Nava. It wouldn’t be the first time the outfielder has been written off. Nava’s entire baseball career has been built on defying the odds, so a demotion to Triple-A Pawtucket likely isn’t going to rattle the 31-year-old, even if it’s somewhat surprising given how well he played last season during the Red Sox’s improbable World Series...

This Ain’t Your 2013 Red Sox

  After Sunday night’s come-from-behind win, it sure looked like the spirit of the 2013 Red Sox was back. The very next day, they rally back from six runs down, and you start making plans for October. The next thing you know, you’re rolling around on the ground gasping for breath and holding your nuts. It’s a feeling I’m afraid we’re going to have to get used to this...
