David Ortiz on MLB Network to Tom Verducci: "I have a very good feeling I'll be playing with Jon Lester again.”
Ok, so having the heart of the lineup be David Ortiz, Yoenis Cespedes, Mike Napoli & Allen Craig makes me feel a whole lot better about the Boston Red Sox letting go of Jon Lester. I never really cared for John Lackey so screw him.
David Ortiz acknowledged he might not see Jon Lester upon his return to Fenway Park on Friday, but "I've got his phone numbe…
David Ortiz was asked if he said good-bye to Jon Lester. “I’ve got his phone number,” he said.
ICYMI: Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz react to the news of Jon Lester's potential departure:
THE NATIONAL SNUB: I've always felt like the Baltimore Orioles and our fans have had a justifiable chip on our collective shoulder. The National media (ESPN especially) loves to focus on the Yankees and the Red Sox. And not without good reason. These are two top franchises in big media markets with huge fan bases. When these teams do well, more people watch Nationally televised games and ESPN rakes in the ratings dollars. In a league that isn't producing many marketable stars, it's all about the big brands and the big rivalries. That is to say, after Derek Jeter goes, baseball does not have Lebron James or Peyton Manning. No real stars in the fold. I know stars and story lines drive the baseball conversation, but it's time that the 2014 Orioles get their air time. Listening to ESPN radio and watching their various talking heads on TV today, the line went something like this: David Price trades, Jon Lester trades, Rays huge win streak and impending comeback, David Ortiz is a big *** Derek Jeter's newe ...

Another busy day in MLB on Friday. MLB Scores: Games in American League Parks: Oakland Athletics 11 Cleveland Indians 1 Detroit Tigers 1 Boston Red Sox 0 In a ALCS rematch, two top pitchers Max Scherzer and Jon Lester took the mound Friday night in Fenway.

Top 1st: Torii Hunter hit a RBI single- Tigers 1 Red Sox 0 This wound up to be the only run of the game as pitching was the story on this night. Pitching lines for both starters: Jon Lester: 5 innings, 4 hits, 1 earned run, 3 walks and 7 strikeouts. Max Scherzer: 6 innings, 3 hits, 0 runs, 4 walks and 7 strikeouts.

The Red Sox (12-13) are just underway in Toronto vs the Blue Jays (11-13) in the final game of their 3 game series. Boston has rebounded nicely from the Yankees series and won the first 2 games (8-1 Friday and 7-6 yesterday) and will send ace Jon Lester (2-3) to the mound to try for the sweep. RA Dickey (1-3) is pitching for the Jays today. After what has been a rough start to the season, the Sox have showed some signs of life and played better in this series. A sweep would be nice, as it would bring the Sox to the .500 mark and right in the mix for the division lead. All things considered, the Red Sox are fortunate that no one has really gotten off to a hot start and they are just 2.5 games back of the Yankees heading into today's action. John Farrell has continued the practice of giving guys days off, depending on the pitching match up. Yesterday it was Mike Napoli and Xander Bogaerts and today it is David Ortiz. As we learned last year, it is a smart idea to have everyone get in enough playing time to ...
No luxury tax implications of timing of extension for David Ortiz or Jon Lester
Fantasy Baseball is coming up anybody that's interested let me know - we need 8 teams by the middle of March or April ! Red Sox look like they could get another championship - Lets go Mike Napoli - David Ortiz - Jon Lester - lackey - Jackie Bradley jr - Grady Sizemore - Dustin Pedroia - etc .
The Red Sox won Game One of The World Series by 7 runs... Jon Lester threw 7 2/3 shutout innings... and David Ortiz and the rest of the bearded wonders once again did absolutely everything they could do as baseball players to make 'Boston Strong'. What's the question that I can't stop thinking about today? "Are you doing all that you can do... too?"
Patience might not be the play when it comes to David Ortiz, Jon Lester
I wanna hear David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia, and Jon Lester's reaction to Elsbury going to the yanks. I can't believe this guy went there.
Figuring Bill De Blasio didn't need my vote to win I went further to the left and voted for the Green Party candidate. So if he loses by one vote - SORRY. The last time I did this I voted for Al "Grandpa" Lewis against Eliot Spitzer, which worked out for me. I mostly voted a Working Parties Line. Except I don't like my City Council member, Elizabeth "Dizzy Lizzy" Crowley, so I wrote in David Ortiz instead. And those judicial races where all the candidates are cross endorsed annoy me, so I wrote in Jon Lester and Dustin Pedroia. I voted for gambling (sorry, Victoria Gearity), for upping the age limit for certain judges, for accounting breaks for municipalities incurring debts to build sewer systems, for civil service reforms favoring veterans, and for a resolution to a long running land title dispute upstate. I voted against giving forest land to a mining company. So that was how I exercised my soverign franchise today.
Adam Wainright and Jon Lester both pitched brilliant tonight in Game 5. The Red Sox were just able to get those key hits and raise the pitch count off of Wainright and get those hits from a WHITE hot David Ortiz who has been 11 of 15 in this World Series, David Ross who had 2 hits tonight and Xander Bogaerts who also had two hits. We're gonna need this kind of production from other players other than Ortiz and Pedroia to win this thing. How about Koji Uhehara huh? The ALCS MVP has been fantastic again in the World Series and hopefully he can continue his streak of a sub 1.00 ERA and keep getting those saves. We just got 1 more to go Red Sox Nation and both games are at Fenway thankfully . Let's get it done and roast those Red Birds on a frickin' spit!
So the Sox are now up 3-2 with two chances to win it at home. A few points from the Series/season: 1) Honestly, no one saw this coming in Spring Training. Even the die-hardiest of ye' ol' Sox fans can't say you saw this team in the Spring and thought, "Yeah, they're going all the way this year." That alone makes this whole postseason that much more rewarding. They were universally picked to finish in last place in the AL East! Am I jinxing them saying this? No. Even if they end up losing both games at home, this season has been more than anyone could have hoped for. Calm down you superstitious baseball fans! It's not 2004 anymore! 2) If the Series had ended tonight, who would you vote for MVP? Papi or Lester? David Ortiz is hitting .733 with a .750 OBP, slugging 1.267. Jon Lester is 2-0 with a 0.59 ERA. Or do you have Co-MVPs a la Schilling & Johnson in 2001? 3) I saw from one of the Sox fan sites that no one walking the planet has ever seen the Boston Red Sox clinch a World Series at Fenway. Not 100% sur ...

Awesome pitching Jon Lester!!! and David Ortiz was amazing as always!! Awesome first game Red Sox!!
berita hari ini : Early offense and Lester's arm gives Red Sox Game 1 - Fox News Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Mike Napoli staked Jon Lester to an early lead in Game 1 of the World Series and the Red Sox lefty did the rest. Lester limited the St. Louis Cardinals to five hits and struck out eight over 7 2/3 scoreless innings as Boston took the opener of the Fall Classic, 8-1, in front of an approving crowd at Fenway Park. The Red Sox jumped on Adam Wainwright early via Napoli's three-run double in the first inning, and David Ortiz added a home run and three RBI in the rout -- Boston's ninth straight World Series victory. St. Louis did not record an extra-base hit against Lester (1-0), committed three errors and lost All-Star slugger Carlos Beltran to a right rib contusion in the second inning when the right fielder robbed Ortiz of a Grand Slam. Wainwright (0-1) only lasted five frames after getting touched for five runs -- three earned -- on six hits for the NL champs, whose only offensive came on Matt ...
Boston Red Sox win game 1, thanks 2 David Ortiz and Jon Lester ..World Series is ON..back 2moro in Fenway Park..
Game over, Red Sox beat the Cardinals 8-1. Just three wins away from that World Series title! It was an all-around great night for the Red Sox. The offense and pitching were both spectacular. After a terrible call by the umpire was overturned (thankfully, or else that ump would have never heard the end of it), Mike Napoli took advantage by hitting a bases-clearing double. The Red Sox never looked back. Dustin Pedroia hit an RBI single in the 2nd inning. David Ortiz followed up with a sacrifice fly. Carlos Beltran snagged a potential Grand Slam on that play, but it cost him. Beltran suffered a hip contusion on that play and it forced him to leave the game. David Ortiz went yard in the 7th with a two-run bomb. And the Red Sox rookie Xander Bogaerts hit a sacrifice fly in the 8th inning. Jon Lester (1-0) was absolutely sensational: 7.2 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 8 K. Tazawa picks up a K in the 8th. Ryan Dempster in the 9th to close it out. The Red Sox lead the series 1-0. They will look to take game 2 tomorrow nigh ...
The make 3 errors leading to 3 unearned runs in 8-1 loss to the in Game 1 of the Jon Lester goes 7.2 scoreless innings. David Ortiz had a HR and 3 RBI.
The Red Sox defeated the Cardinals, 8-1, in Game 1 of the World Series behind strong pitching by Jon Lester and big hits by Mike Napoli and David Ortiz.
World Series GAME 1: Game 1 may have ended the moment Adam Wainwright conked his head off the "Low Clearance" 3rd Base Dugout before his 1st Warmups. If that didn't end matters, the controversial reversal at 2nd Base in all effect did. In a 8-1 win for the Red Sox tonight, the damage began immediately in the bottom of the 1st inning where a would be inning ending Double Play became the site of a controversy that sent the game the Red Sox direction. Mike Napoli had a bases clearing triple after that play. By the 3rd inning, the score was 5-0 Boston, the Cardinals were playing clueless, and one of the Cardinals MVP'ers (Carlos Beltran) was taken out of the game with a rib injury robbing David Ortiz of a 2nd inning Grand Slam. Outside of a 4th inning Bases Loaded Jam, Jon Lester was on his "A" game, hurling 7 2/3 innings of shutout ball, striking out 8. David Ortiz eventually added his 16th Career Postseason HR to pad the scoring. Game 2 will see Mike Wacha, who has been dominant in 3 postseason starts, for ...
A list of former Sea Digs who are in this World Series. Well, Ortiz DID play here for rehab. Hope this list encourages more folks to come to Sea Dogs games next year (and help the Ronald McDonald House parking fundraiser). Boston: Pitchers: Ryan Dempster, Clay Buchholtz, Felix Doubront, Jon Lester, Junichi Tazawa and Brandon Workman. Infield: Xander Bogaerts, Will Middlebrooks and Dustin Pedroia. Outfield: Jacoby Ellsbury, Daniel Nava and David Ortiz.
Stan Musial vs. Ted Williams in 1946, Bob Gibson vs. Carl Yastrzemski in '67, Pedro Martinez vs. Albert Pujols in 2004, historically this series has been the biggest names in baseball against each other. David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia, and Jon Lester vs. Adam Wainwright, Michael Wacha, and Carlos Beltran in 2013, just to name a few. Come on Wednesday night!!! Go Cards!!
Here's a look at the playoff experience of the Red Sox: 66 games: David Ortiz. He's a .283 hitter in the postseason with 12 homers and 47 RBIs. His 57 postseason games for the Red Sox are second only to Jason Varitek's team-record 63. 46 games: Shane Victorino. The Flyin' Hawaiian played plenty of October games for the Phillies. He's a .269 hitter in the postseason with six homers and 30 RBIs. 32 games: Mike Napoli. He has been to the postseason six times in eight seasons and hit .272. 28 games: Dustin Pedroia. He has hit a modest .252 in the postseason and is 5 of his last 27. 22 games: Jacoby Ellsbury: Since bursting onto the scene in 2007, he has hit .261 in the postseason.

He has hit .320 in the postseason with an .898 OPS. 11 games: Quintin Berry: He played a lot for Detroit last season, but was 5 for 26. 8 games: Jon Lester and ...
Most of the key members of the Red Sox have playoff experience, so handling what is to come this month won't be unfamiliar to them. But the Red Sox franchise has not won a playoff game since Oct. 18, 2008 when they took Game 6 of the American League Championship Series against the Rays. In the five years since, almost everything has changed. New general manager, new manager (twice), new coaches and almost an entirely new cast of players. Only Jacoby Ellsbury, Jon Lester, David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia are back from the roster that faced the Rays in 2008. Clay Buchholz was not in the postseason that year. Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield, Mike Lowell, J.D. Drew, Julio Lugo, Alex Cora, Kevin Cash, and Mike Timlin are retired. Guys like Jason Bay, Kevin Youkilis, Manny Delcarmen, and Manny Ramirez might as well be, given the state of their fading careers. Justin Masterson, Coco Crisp, and Jed Lowrie were traded. Jonathan Papelbon left as a free agent. After two World Series titles in a span of four years, playof ...
Jon Lester, David Ortiz lift to series victory over Orioles, via Herald Clubhouse Insider -
Red Sox staff gets fresh start FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Boston Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester stood at his locker in the clubhouse of JetBlue Park at Fenway South when teammate David Ortiz walked over to give him a Big Papi hug. "You look great, bro," Ortiz told Lester. "You're not [messing around]." On the first official day of workouts for pitchers and catchers, Ortiz made the rounds and hugged it out with almost every pitcher on the Sox's staff. The best teams in baseball always have the best, and healthiest, pitching staffs and the Red Sox know that all too well. After all, Boston's been on both sides of the spectrum in that regard in recent years. The pitchers should arrive at camp in great shape, and the Red Sox's staff appears to have done all the proper offseason work in order to be prepared for Spring Training and the 2013 season. So it's no surprise that the Red Sox feel that, at least on paper, they have another potentially solid pitching staff. "When you look at the abilities here, and the talent that' ...
OSTON -- At a time of year where managers like to plot out potential starting lineups on a paper napkin, John Farrell has one key spot that remains uncertain. While the Red Sox certainly hope to have Mike Napoli in the middle of their batting order and playing first base by the time camp opens, there are no guarantees until a contract is actually signed. However, Farrell isn't fretting over the situation. Instead, he continues to work on matters that are under his control. "It's understood," said Farrell, who was a guest at Theo Epstein's Hot Stove/Cool Music baseball roundtable Friday. "This isn't like it's a major surprise at this point. I have the utmost confidence that this question will be answered in due time. We're working through it." Whether or not Napoli eventually comes on board, Farrell looks at the newcomers (Shane Victorino, Jonny Gomes, Stephen Drew, Ryan Dempster, etc.) that will join the existing core (Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, Will Middlebrooks, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jon Lester) and is exc ...
Only four Boston Red Sox players on the current roster attended legendary Sox player and coach Johnny Pesky's funeral on Monday. Those four were David Ortiz, Clay Buchholz, Vicente Padilla, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Even more appalling is that the Sox front office chartered buses for players (as well as front office staff) to attend the funeral, and the team had a day off on Monday...and yet, only those four players made the trip. However, former players such as Nomar Garciaparra (who was apparently extremely emotional during the ceremony) made the trip for the legend's farewell. I can understand that a lot of the members of the Red Sox are new to the club, but when only Ortiz and Buchholz show up among your big names...that's a problem. No Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez, Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, Jon Lester...it's an embarrassment to the franchise. In contrast, nearly the entire team was at Beckett's Beckett Bowl event that night. If you want proof that...
What is happening between David Ortiz and Jon Lester
This guy is almost as much 'fun' listening to as Dennis "Tunnel Vision" Callahan throw the towel in ;) "Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, David Ortiz and Jacoby Ellsbury are the four that must go." Up until the last two games, Sox were 4-7 after Ortiz went on the DL.
Nick Cafardo writes: NEW YORK – It will be three years and no postseason if the current trend continues with the Boston Red Sox. Two of those seasons were during Terry Francona’s tenure as manager. This one belongs to Bobby Valentine. Can we finally say now that it’s not the manager? Can we finally say out loud and with some forcefulness that the problem is the roster? What is the common denominator over the last three seasons? The roster hasn’t changed all that much except for the fill-ins who come along when there are injuries. The Red Sox saddled themselves with poor free agent signings in John Lackey, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Mike Cameron, Carl Crawford, and Bobby Jenks and the good ones – Victor Martinez, Adrian Beltre, and Jason Bay -- left as free-agents. The players this team has to depend on most – the top of the rotation starters like Josh Beckett and Jon Lester – have let them down. The only constants among the regulars have been David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia and Adrian Gonzalez. Jarrod S ...

very different look to my Red Sox tonight with interleague play - Adrian Gonzalez in the outfield...David Ortiz on first...Jon Lester batting! But they are up 1 - 0...GO Sox!
"Boston designated hitter David Ortiz says that if the losing continues, he will take it upon himself as a team leader to put the brakes on the team’s locker room meth operation. “We need to get back to the basics that made this team so great back in 2004 and 2007,” he said. “Strong pitching, defense, timely hitting, locker room camaraderie and a ton of steroids. Mostly the steroids. Meth has zero performance-enhancing attributes.” The Red Sox also announced today that starter Jon Lester has been placed on the disabled list with loss of teeth and face rot."
trades David Ortiz and Nick Markakis to for Carlos Pena and Jon Lester. Pending league approval of course.
