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 ...
BOSTON, MA— Jacoby Ellsbury is a mercenary, and we don’t mean that as a pejorative.

And so here we are six years later, with free agency only months away, and the clock on Ellsbury’s Red Sox career ticking to zero. If this is indeed it for the leadoff hitter, sparkplug, and (for one season, anyway) superstar, the final three months of the season should be interesting ones. If he has indeed been angling all along for free agency, then he knows how important it is to finish strong. “It’s just a matter of him staying focused,” said teammate Shane Victorino, who admits his ...
Kevin Youkilis thinks Jon Lester isn't as mentally or physically into the game as he used to be, and he's not sure why.
Why, Why, Why? Why did Bobby V. pitch to Youk with first base open, two men on, two outs, and the score tied 3 to 3? Because he's smarter than any other manager? NOT! "Youkilis did his OPS battle with Jon Lester there, working his way to a 3-2 count with men on second and third. Then, in one very Kevin Youkilis swing, he ripped a fly that was an over-the-wall guarantee from the moment it touched his bat. Mid 4th, 6-2 White Sox: Welcome back, Kevin Youkilis.
New podcast! Struggling Red Sox like Jon Lester, Kevin Youkilis are discussed as well as Cody Ross and Albert Pujols.
