Congrats on the new contact. You will be missed by the Red Sox Nation but you will be closer to your family.
Good luck with the D-Backs Red Sox nation will miss you.
Unbelievable. Red Sox Nation needs new management at the helm of their team, based on illogical moves of the past five years.
that is great news. If he signed w bos, red sox nation would have revolted. Who would have thought cle n Pitt would b big spenders
Ha! "Sweet Caroline" is the best bar sing along song of all time. I'm not gonna let pompous "Red Sox Nation" ruin that! Enjoy!
I'm a bit disappointed... If Swish had to go, I would have loved to see the reaction of Red Sox Nation if he'd gone to Boston.
i prefer fam or family. Nation reminds me of Red Sox

Can't wait for his return to Red Sox Nation. Not gonna be pleasant!!!
Kevin Youkilis to the Yankees? The New York Yankees have signed third baseman Kevin Youkilis to a 1yr/12M deal. So, what do you do, Red Sox Nation? Do you cheer him for the years that he gave you from 2004 to 2010, which included 2 World Series championships? Or, do you show "no mercy" and boo him for joining the "Evil Empire"? Youkilis, who is a career .283 batter, is undoubtedly being brought in to play third base for New York since Alex Rodriguez is going to be out 4-6 months once he has hip surgery in January. He is a solid defender at third and received his only Gold Glove award at that base in 2007. Did the Yankees make this move because he was the best option? Or did they do it because it could give them a psychological advantage over their rivals, the Boston Redsox? Or both?~JD
Yankees offering Kevin Youkilis is giant for Red Sox Nation
Perfect quote from Deadspin "being a lifelong Indians fan transcends any of the whining from Wrigley Field or...Red Sox Nation. *** "
We take good care of our peeps, Shane. Welcome to Red Sox Nation!
Youk to the Yankees = Damon to the Yankees back in '06. Aka would *** off Red Sox Nation. BIG TIME.
please note that the Red Sox Nation wants a big bat and some pitching for Christmas.
Welcome to Red Sox Nation, Shane Victorino, Mike Napoli, and Jonny Gomes! Have my eyes on Brandon McCarthy. Always. Getting. Better.
Hey, Red Sox Nation- do you think we'll ever experience this again? Yea to Marco Scutaro---wish you were still here!
or just call it Red Sox Nation and just watch it fall apart
We have the number 23 college ba in the nation and its a Red Sox bar!
Congrats on the Gold Glove, biggest mistake the Red Sox made was trading you, coming from a member of the Nation

"If theres any fan base in college sports with a defeatist attitude similar to the misery of pre-2004 Red Sox Nation, it's N.C. State's."
Dear Red Sox Nation, enjoy Brian Butterfield. You'll adore him. He's the best.
can I get a shout out for my family and the rest of Red Sox Nation struggling with Sandy?
Live Nation and the Boston Red Sox are excited to announce that Jason Aldean has added a second show at Fenway Park on Friday, July 12th!

Hey Carl, Red Sox Nation is relieved you're gone too.
Hey Crazy Larry Luchino,did you see who got the winning hit for the Giants,Marco Scutaro, Why can't we get shortstops like that, oh wait we had him but then we had Mike Aviles. oh wait we don't have any shortstop. that's ok Larry we got no firstbaseman,left fielder,right fielder,ace, and do we really have a closer? But we do have a last place manager,Can he still pitch? Welcome to Red Sox Nation my friends.
one last thing: "Raidernation" = Raider fans are everywhere. believe that. Red Sox nation is only in Mass. and Connecticut.
Red Sox Nation came out in 1986 from a sportswriter, 12 years after the original Raidernation.
tell that to Red sox nation Gator Nation Mamao Nation.
I can wear my Red Sox nation shirt again because as of today we are all undefeated!
when approaching NYC, can I direct you to 1 East 161st St in the Bronx?! Thank you kindly. Love and Kisses, Red Sox Nation
Baseball season over. Red Sox Nation says, " Just now? I thought it was over in June."
Thanks for the memories, Mike! You will be missed by Red Sox Nation. Best of luck in Toronto.
And Red Sox Nation cheers unison as the 2012 season ends!
To all my Detroit fans I am so sorry!! But as we of Red Sox Nation say..."Wait 'till next year!"
I didn't realize how much I missed the red sox and Fenway and red sox nation until I watched the World Series.. Excuse me while I go and cry
pretty good feeling for Red Sox Nation too! Thanks for everything, boys!
I shall simply steal from Schilling and Red Sox Nation: Why not us?

Red Sox fans unite! Alright now we just have to get you to ditch the Spitfires & join Whalers Nation!
I don't even think that program exists anymore. The people who started it have left the Red Sox.
Gov of Red Sox Nation. He lost the main election to Remy
I think the Prez of Red Sox Nation is battling with the ex.
Bless me Red Sox Nation, for I have sinned. Tonight I'm dressed in a Yankee outfit for a Holloween party. Mark is Marilyn Monroe and it was only natural for me to be joe DiMaggio. Please forgive me. FYI I have I love Boston written in glow in the dark paint.
Those who don't follow sports often say it's just a game and has no real meaning. Dare you to say that to all of Red Sox Nation in '04.
4 those of us who lived our lives as proud members of Red Sox Nation,
8 years ago you blessed Red Sox Nation. Thank you for that.
Thank You!! Red Sox Nation will always be grateful!
Loved your "Why Not Us" quote! Red Sox Nation is forever grateful!
Only teams that deserve "nation" after their name are the Yankees, Red Sox, Lakers, and Celtics. That's IT! Only teams with nationwide fans
Thank you for everything you gave to the city of Boston and Red Sox Nation!
I like how every fan base calls themselves a nation. I'm pretty sure Red Sox Nation was the beginning. The rest of you just lack creativity.
A great day in history for Red Sox Nation
I love slowly creeping back into Red Sox nation.
Red Sox winning the series? Yes, the day Red Sox Nation became cocky, yet again.
Eight years ago today I had a tear in my eye, a smile on my face and some pretty big man hugs. What happened to red sox nation?
Today in History: On October 27, 2004, the Boston Red Sox win the World Series for the first time since 1918, finally vanquishing the so-called "Curse of the Bambino" that had plagued them for 86 years. "This is for anyone who has ever rooted for the Red Sox," the team’s GM told reporters after the game. "This is for all of Red Sox Nation, past and present." Ever since team owner and Broadway producer Harry Frazee sold the great Babe Ruth to the Yankees in 1920—he got $125,000 and a $300,000 loan, which he used to pay Fenway’s mortgage and put on the musical No, No, Nannette—the Sox had been tragically unable to win the World Series. People said that the team was cursed. Before 1920, the Sox had won five championships and the Yanks hadn’t won any; after the Babe left, Boston’s well ran dry. The Yankees, meanwhile, won a record 26 times after 1920. Over and over, the hapless Sox almost won—and over and over, they didn’t. In 1946, they were winning Game 7 with two outs in the eighth—until ...
8 years ago today, the Red Sox did the unthinkable and washed away 86 years. Happy Anniversary Red Sox Nation
any fan that puts the word "Nation" after the name of their favorite team is a bandwagon fan. '04 Red Sox got it started.
Even though for me, baseball season is over, going to Connecticut for me means wearing Yankee stuff to *** of "red sox nation"!
Cody Ross to the Boston Herald: "We're trying to get on the same page," ... "I love Boston. I love playing here. I love the park. I love the fans. I love the city. It's a perfect place for me." We love you too Cody. ~Red Sox Nation
From the Onion: "Red Sox Hire Man To Wear Red Sox Hat". The sad part is, this is disturbingly close to a legitimate sports story. Ladies and gentlemen, in Red Sox Nation, it has come to this.
Bobby V is crazy, just ask Red Sox nation, will tell you.
My apologies to Chris Hetherington and Red Sox Nation. If it's any comfort, I'm not anticipating the Mets (Mess?) winning another Series title in my lifetime. But ya' never know.
Hey Red Sox Nation! I'm picking SF Giants to win this one and not to mention such a picturesque city by the bay. Who is with me on this one?
Hey Red Sox Nation. Ellsbury for Lincecum. What do you think?
Welcome back to Boston, John Farrell! Red Sox Nation turns it's hopeful eyes to you, Skipper!
What do you think Red Sox Nation, is Farrell the answer? I didn't think they'd be able to get him but I believe he is the "guy." I'm very optimistic.
well I almost had Arlene Fleisher believing me when I told her the NY Yankees are moving to NJ and will be playing out of the Meadowlands starting in 2015... she just doesn't wanna let go of her Bronx Bombers. bombers?? how fitting lol since they did BOMB this year or wait, in all fairness they didn't "bomb" but "CHOKED" ROFL ;-] (this message was brought to by a diehard Bosox fan of the Red Sox Nation)
Red Sox Nation hopes 2013 will be a big improvement over 2012.
The Boston Red Sox are closing in on a two-year deal with free-agent designated hitter David Ortiz that they hope to finalize before the end of the week, according to a baseball source.
Red Sox "Nation" should be excited about their new manager. John Farrell has a proven track record of leading his teams to 4th place finishes. Definitely an improvement over this year.
John Farrell to the rescue, hopefully. Save the Red Sox Nation please!
Exciting news announced by my friend Charlie Mattos today. So happy for Charlie and Renee.
John Farrell is back in Boston where he belongs. Red Sox Nation is in a state of jubilation!!!
Word is Ortiz is about to get a 2-year extension, and Farrell is at the helm. Red Sox Nation will be back on plan...
John Farrel takes over the Red Sox today...let the healing begin Red Sox Nation...We shall rise again...
Red sox, red flag, red rag, on my red G-5 shoes, I put my red dre beat on trying to make a beat, white pad and red pen, watching the *** with my eyes red, stuck to the coke till my nose bleed, that's a coke bleed, i'm so cold blooded like when the *** bleed, I'm on a paper chase till my toes bleed and i'm gonna honour this beat till my soul bleed... Red Nation.
I often find survivors who need a little help (and well who doesn't) I found Chris on here, and well being a male breast cancer survivor has to suck, and being one during October, well pink probably isn't his color, pinstripes more like it. Yes this member of Red Sox nation wants to help this diehard Yankee fan. Pay it forward. It rocks
Patriots are no longer mighty. they will suck next year and join Red Sox nation at the bottom of their sport
Attention red sox nation. How bout this guy for the new manager ?
I really do think this will fix red sox nation...i friggin hope
Another beautiful day here in the hills. Welcome Coach Farrel back the Red Sox Nation!
Welcome John Farrell back to Red Sox Nation! Heck yes! Change is well needed for us. Looking forward to seeing what he can do for our Sox
Welcome back John Farrell. Red Sox Nation has reason to believe again
Good Morning Red Sox Nation - and it is a good one.. Welcome Home, John Farrell! You are back where you belong and we are sooo happy!
Thrilled that it appears the Red Sox FINALLY have their man as manager. John Farrell will be a refreshing departure from Bobby V.'s non-stop self-promotion. He'll also bring a fiery disposition, which is great. I cannot WAIT for the 1st time John "Lacking" Lackey takes the mound for the 1st time & tries to not give the ball & disrespect Farrell like he did to Terry Francona several times. Farrell could haul off & deck Lackey! Fun times ahead, Red Sox Nation...!
Great day for Red sox Nation! Farrell in! Woohoo. How many days til spring training!! We are pumped up!
I would like to welcome John Ferrell back to the Red Sox Nation a great hire after the joke that was Bobby Valentine
Happy Time People: Happy Anniversary to J.D. Drew. On this night 5 years ago, he hit a grand slam in the 1st inning of Game 6 of the ALCS to help lead the Red Sox to a 12-2 win over the Cleveland Indians tying the series at 3 games apiece. That win was part of the Red Sox comeback from down 3-1 to beat the Indians in that ALCS on their way to their second world championship in four years. As you know, Drew is not missed by many in New England and was not known by hardly anybody as a great Red Sox player. But without his grand slam 5 years ago tonight, perhaps the Sox may not have had a title to add to their 2004 title when they broke the curse. What short term memories that we as Red Sox Nation have indeed!
First Bobby Valentine is fired, and now the Yankees have been swept. Great year for Red Sox Nation!
On Tuesday July 31, the trade deadline expired and the Boston Red Sox defeated Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers 4-1 to improve their record to 53-51, one game behind the 54-50 Detroit Tigers. After August 1, the Tigers went 34-24 and the Red Sox went 16-42.and tonight, the Tigers are American League Champions. Its quite obvious to me that the Red Sox management and players who stabbed Bobby Valentine in the back went out of their way to do their best Rachel Phelps impersonation and throw the rest of the season. It was a set up to Valentine because the players and pompus fraternity known as Red Sox Nation did not think Valentine was good enough to work here. The next time your favorite baseball team is hovering around 0.500 at the trade deadline, remember this post! Too many of you live and die with every game. The Patriots are 3-3.the season has not started yet and it really DOES NOT MATTER if they win Sunday. It matters how you finish!
Having fun keeping up with the Tigers here in Red Sox Nation. I still wish Curtis Granderson wore the Olde English "D" but Mr. Jackson seems to have things under control in CF.
Carl Yastrzemski Autographed Baseball: Good Evening Red Sox Nation! Was there anyone better? Yaz was the last...
Fun hearing from Red Sox Nation again. Where have y'all been? Went past Fenway recently and the lights were off. No playoff games? Weird!
The first draft of the music video "At Fenway" will be reviewed by me in the coming days. I am so happy about the fact that my mother is actually in this video, the only music video ever filmed at Fenway Park to be licensed by Major League Baseball. My shirt, Bill Shatner's shirt, and my mother's Red Sox sweater will all be added to The National Baseball Hall of Fame. Other items will be added to The Smithsonian Institute. I look forward to Red Sox Nation and the world at large being able to see this music video when it comes out. It's the thing all of us who participated will be most remembered by, and I appreciate all of your support during what has been a surreal few weeks. I aim to do what my mother gave up her own ambitions for me to achieve.
I remember this well, Kathy and I were celabrating our 20th anniversary In Kauai.We were taking a break before dinner, when suddenly from out of nowhere Aaron Boone hits a homerun off Wakefield. I'll never forget Wake just walking off the mound. Red Sox Nation would end up saying"wait till next year" for the last time. The Sox defeated the Yankees in the 2004 ALCS only after being down 3 games to 0. Keep your heads up Yankee Fans, maybe you can come back this year after being down 3-0, but you better hope they start hitting. Because so far they look like big chokers.
So you all should listen to my radio show tonight, at 10PM. Casey In The 603 Radio Show - 91.5 WWLR "The Voice of Lyndon" My first song is a dedication to Bobby Valentine, the former Red Sox Manager from Red Sox Nation. You will get this song stuck in your head. It will make you laugh too, as long as you know who he is.
Forgive me Red Sox Nation, I will never be a Yankee fan. I was suffering from post-pardon-last-place-suckfest depression. I swear on Ted Williams grave I will never say such lies and heresy again.
How does it feel Davey Johnson to watch a sure series clinching win slip away when you're one strike away from victory? Karma from 1986 I say. Right Red Sox Nation?
Sad times for Red Sox Nation: we can make fun of A-Rod for being pinch hit in a clutch situation or laugh at John Sterling's bush league play by play. That's all we got.
More New York Yankees history made tonight as Raul Ibanez hits TWO SOLO HRs. One during the bottom of the 9th to tie the game; and a walk-off home run to clip the Baltimore Orioles. How's that feel Red Sox Nation? LMAO. AND when Tom Brady and that cheating *** Belichick (who the Steelers whooped on for years when he was in with the Browns; all of a sudden he's a genius...) leave the Patriots, it will be at that time that I will suppoer the Patriots once again just like I did when Steve Grogan (a real mans QB) was there. For now, thank God for the New York football Giants; a team all of New England can be proud of.
Jenny Dell Thanks Red Sox Nation for Memorable First Year at NESN, Can't Wait for Next Season to Begin (Video)
Watching Yankee game in Red Sox Nation! Ichiro is like the amazing Yen from "Ocean's 11"
Thank you Red Sox Nation for giving us REDS FANS Bronson Arroyo ! :)
Final Red Sox Comments: My friend, Bobby Valentine, has been fired; he was never given a chance with a deck of cards that had pre-existing flaws; he now is the classic scape-goat! As Bill Parcells once said: "If you are going to make dinner you should be allowed to go to the market and pick the ingredients!" Good Luck Bobby from a Red Sox Nation fan who appreciated your hard work.
Yes, my dear friends, although I am living in warm, opressively humid Gatorville, Florida, I can still feel the collective sigh of relief from Red Sox Nation like a cool(ish) autumn breeze. Pa...
Dennis B. Appleton writes: In five decades as a New York Yankees fan, I never thought I’d find myself commiserating with Red Sox Nation. But after this season, even a diehard pinstriper must sympathize with the Fenway faithful.
sooo...Red Sox Nation what's the opinion on John Farrell.good choice for replacing Valentine.???
Tough day for Red Sox Nation: Firing of Bobby V & now Curt Schilling might have to sell his bloody sock
Note to my friends and fam who belong to the bandwagon cult otherwise known as Red Sox Nation... It's easy to blame Bobby Valentine for the collapse of your Boston Red Sox, but it is also naive and stupid. Players win and lose games, period, and this group you have has turned into a clubhouse full of coach-killing, cancerous "me" guys. They completely collapsed under an easy-going players' manager. They looked like a Little League team under an old school hard-nosed manager. And they won't win with any kind of manager until they have genuine leadership and players who for the most part play for each other, not for themselves. (like Jason Varitek) [note: it's OK if you have a guy like Manny here and there, 1.) if they produce big-time and 2.) if most of the other guys are in it together] Face the facts. your ownership and executives are terrible! They wasted tens of millions on awful signings, traded away a franchise player (A-Gon, one of the best lefty hitters and best teammates in baseball) after only a ...
Jason Varitek will be the next manager of the Boston Red Sox, mark my words. Red Sox Nation, to much of my chagrin, will make the Yankee-Red Sox rivalry relevant again.
It's not spring, but when I think of our beloved Red Sox - who are, at the moment, without a manager - my hope springs eternal that 2013 will begin with a new passion to win and all will be right once again in Red Sox Nation. Love you, Red Sox!
Red Sox Nation had a celebration today as they dismissed Bobby Valentine
Tears of joy in Red Sox Nation so long Bobby Valentine were season 5 decades
There is a GOD!! Mitt wiped the floor with the anointed one and Bobby Valentine has been banished from Red Sox Nation. All in the same night.
Thanks Bobby V for managing my Sox to their worst season in the last 50 yrs.Good riddance and don't let the door hit you on the way out! Ben please do whatever it takes to get John Farrell.Thanks.sincerely Red Sox Nation
Pretty sad day for Red Sox Nation. Thank goodness for the Patriots!
Red Sox Nation? You there? Anyone, anyone? Oh, it's not cool to be a Red Sox fan anymore? Where'd you all go? Enjoy watching the Evil Empire next week from your comfy seat on the last-place couch. Cue Darth Vader breathing.
Love the passage below from the great Charles Pierce of Grantland and Esquire. He's writing about being a Red Sox fan and how Red Sox Nation needed a horrible season like the one that is just coming to a close. But really isn't this every one of us, those of us who are in it to for the long haul, whose allegiance to one team and one team only dates back to when we were eight or nine years old and we should've known better and turned frontrunner and had a new "favorite" team each year, depending on the standings? You can feel the old, cranky curmudgeon in every line Charlie Pierce writes here. (You can also feel a little Bill "Spaceman" Lee in this passage, too.) And, you can also feel the tragic love of knowing that ugly or beautiful, joyously successful or hopelessly unsuccessful, whether it's Gil Hodges or Steve Garvey or ahem, James Loney, you're forced to ride shotgun with your team for the rest of your life: "So, I rather enjoyed the second half of this Red Sox season. I was reminded of all the after ...
Sorry O's Fans... Guess this is even more proof that my original thought, (even before he was hired) that Bobby Valentine will be the destruction of the Boston Red Sox, was indeed accurate! Hopefully the Sox will have enough for you guys tomorrow to do our part.. Worst case scenario.. You will have Red Sox Nation also rooting for you in the playoffs to take down THE Evil Empire! Yankees Suck!
Dear powers that be in Red Sox Nation, we have suffered enough, go into the dugout and fire Bobby Valentine during the game and put us out of our misery Thank you a Red Sox fan since 1974
I just figured out how to fix the Red Sox. Isn't it obvious that RemDawg has run his course as President of Red Sox Nation? It is time for new leadership. With that in mind, I nominate Dennis Eckersley.
Bobby Valentine has done a great job with a very mediocre ball club. The Red Sox should honor his contract and bring him back for another excititng year in Red Sox Nation.
As a Yankee fan...I know that Red Sox Manager Bobby Valentine is a great Baseball Manager.. He was just poisoned by The Red Sox Nation.
What a difference a baseball season makes. I was one of four people in Camden Yards today wearing a Red Sox cap at the Orioles/Red Sox game. And I was rooting for the Orioles. No sign of Red Sox Nation. Go O's!
Sports talk radio host and local Raider correspondent,JT the Brick,used a spinoff of the term “Raider Nation” to coin the term for the Raiders’ cross-bay rival, the “49er Empire.” The term "Raider Nation” has inspired many imitations -- the “Steeler Nation,” the “Bronco Nation,” and the most notable as of late; the so-called "Red Sox Nation.” I even recently heard an ignorant Red Sox fan attempting to convince others that the Raiders actually stole the term “Nation” from them! This was likely a fan who was not even alive when the Raiders coined the phrase. While the “Raider Nation” came about in the 70s, the phrase “Red Sox Nation” was first coined by Boston Globe feature writer Nathan Cobb in an October 20,1986,article about split allegiances among fans in Connecticut between the Mets and the Red Sox in the 1986 World Series. So basically in its earliest form, “Red Sox Nation” was making reference to two fanbases fighting over one tiny little insignificant state like ...
Bobby Valentine says he will be back / do u feel he will return as Red Sox Nation's skipper? Does he get the ZIGGY BABY ?
Its official, I have signed up for my 3-day membership starting Friday to Red Sox Nation! just sayin'
A fitting tribute for one of the dearest members of Red Sox Nation.
Red Sox Nation! I just watched a wonderful tribute to Johnny Pesky at Fenway Park. It was joyous and tearful! Many great Sox from the past were there including my two favorites, El Tiante and Carlton Fisk. Pedro Martinez, Roger Clemens, Rich Gedman and Bill Lee. At the end , everyone laid roses on the number six. And then everyone autographed the Pesky Pole.
Wow just watched an outstanding tribute to a Red Sox Legend... Johnny Pesky.. what a awesome tribute and to hear the storeis from players from the past and present on *** wJohnny was to them... Thank You Red Sox Nation will always have you in our HEARTS !
Just watched the Johnny Pesky ceremony! Miss ya Johnny! Red Sox Nation will never be the same! RIP
Watching the tribute to Red Sox legend Johnny Pesky...very moving. Red Sox past and present are there. u will b missed by Red Sox Nation!
It's been a tough year for us Red Sox fans, but watching the Johnny Pesky tribute makes me proud to be a part of Red Sox Nation!
Sorry here in Boston Bobby Valentines future as manager of the Red Sox is in question, so Red Sox Nation is Uber Valentine!
In Red Sox Nation of course!, Katrina not home tonight, going to try and find her, not hard, there is only 6 fans at the game tonight,LOL!
My fellow members of Red Sox Nation, do you root for our team or do you root for the "O" to be a spoiler?
Pretty sure Mariano Rivera will forever be a hero in Red Sox Nation for winning us so many games. -...

Dear God No! If BOOBY comes back Red Sox Nation will get ALOT smaller!!!
The Red Sox and Yankees series is the playoffs for the Red Sox; anything to keep the Yankees out of the playoff is good for Red Sox Nation. Last night, Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia came up BIG; trying to give the Orioles and Devil Rays every opportunity unseat the Evil Empire. Go Bosox !
Red Sox Nation and the Navajo Nation celebrate in unison tonight as birthday boy Jacoby Ellsbury capped his 29th birthday with a walk off, game winning RBI single to beat the Yankees at Fenway 4-3 tonight
It may be Jacoby Ellsbury's birthday, but he gave Red Sox Nation a present. The water is dirty tonight!
I am proud as a great uncle to tell you about my two grand nephews Eric and Brian Burrows. Both are currently serving their country in the US Navy. They are the sons of Era and Brian Burrows. Their Mother Era is an Officer in the US Army and the Dad is a retired Chief in the US Navy! The Grandfather is John Burrows who taught Art classes at PHS. Congratulations to young Brian just marrying a pretty lady by the name of Li Li! There must be a lot of saluting in that family and all I am pleased to say all of the family are proud members of Red Sox Nation!
Red Sox Nation, Katie Couric feels your pain! The ex-galpal of Sox owner Tom Werner said she has been monitoring the unraveling of the Olde Towne Team this season, and knows that Yawkey Way has become a regular Boulevard of Broken Dreams. “I feel terrible,” Couric told the Track. “I...
After a baseball season like this, the only success Red Sox Nation will feel is watching the yankees fail to make the playoffs.
2011 was the fall of Red Sox Nation. 2012 will bring an end to the Evil Empire. Orioles are tied for the lead the AL East in September, letsss go
it's hard for me to be a Red Sox fan when are numbers 3 hitter is Jacoby Ellsbury and our number four hitter is James Loney, and our manager is Bobby Valentine, can't get any worse for Red Sox Nation
Good thing the construction on the Tobin Bridge has the sides block, the faithful cannot start jumping Red Sox Nation
Are the LA Dodgers out of their cotton pickin' minds??? A very cool quarter billion dollars and major pains of relief for the Red Sox. Too bad you refused to take Lackey in place of Gonzo!! Many thanks, Magic!!!--- your buddies- Larry Bird and all of Red Sox Nation.
A-Gon, Crawford, Beckett,and Punto gone! I wonder how many true Red Sox fans they'll be now? I hated to lose A-Gon but something had to be done missing the playoffs three years in a row just doesn't cut it and they can use that $262 million and invest it in players like Big Papi who has been there for 10 years and has paid his dues because if it wasn't for Papi there would not be two banners in Boston! No matter what happens with this team I will always be a PROUD memeber of The Greatest Nation in The World Red Sox Nation!
Ben Cherington had some very uplifting words for Red Sox Nation yesterday. The era of cost-effective, but high-end spending is back. The era of building the team from within is back. The era of Ben Cherington & Bobby Valentine can now officially begin. While it may have been a down year, you can look forward to a heck of an exciting off-season.
I love that Sox trade. A Gon looked great in a Dodgers uni. I will miss Beckett and thank god someone took Crawford. Maybe the Sox learned from this experience. DONT SIGN FREE AGENT TAMPA BAY RAYS. Hello Lugo, etc. "Red Sox Nation" needed a crappy season or two to clean out the pink hats!!
I guess most of Red Sox Nation got what they wanted, i.e. Josh Beckett & Carl Crawford out of town. The Dodgers are taking on a lllooottt of money. And Crawford won't be able to play until this time NEXT season because he had Tommy John surgery a couple of days ago. Put another way, the Dodgers are going to pay Crawford $21 mil & change to rehab most, if not all, of next season.
Sad day for Red Sox Nation. Good for the future, but hard to swallow now.
Cannot believe the Red Sox just completely blew it up. I'm officially jumping off the crazy train that is referred to as Red Sox Nation and taking my talents as a fan to St. Pete. Go Rays!
From my blog this morning on NSNsports.net ... Remember back a month or so ago we were asking "So will the Red Sox be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline?". Well it is a bit past the deadline but I guess we have our answer now, huh? Wow! If it goes through the reported deal in the works between the Sox and the Dodgers will have to go down as one of the biggest $$$ wise in MLB history. Gonzo, Beckett, Crawford (and Punto) to LA ... the big three are due a cool $260 million after this season, and while the reports indicate that Boston will be sending along some money it is clear they will be freeing up a lot of cash in this deal. Of the five players reportedly coming from LA, only James Loney is an established major leaguer ... the others are all prospects ... but only pitcher Allen Webster is considered a blue chipper. So let's call this for what is ... a combined house cleaning and salary dump of the highest order. The amazing thing about it is I haven't heard anyone in Red Sox Nation complaining abou ...
I thought the Red Sox management lost their minds with the Bobby Valentine hiring...seriously, this latest move just confirms it. Hold on Red Sox Nation...it could be another 86 years at this point, but we will stand as loyal as ever...even in the insanity!
Red Sox Nation should put John Henry and his management crew on waivers. Do you think anyone would claim them? Probably some African football association! What a freaking mess.
Johnny Pesky was not only an all-time great Red Sox player, but he essentially embodied the heart of Red Sox Nation. The legendary shortstop passed away just last week, while Boston was on the road, but the Red Sox wanted to make a special tribute to their fallen friend and decided that Tuesday's re...
Bobby Valentine blows. Your fired numb nutts. Get out of Red Sox Nation. ( well that's my rush anyways ). Lol
Just watched the tribute to Johnny Pesky from Fenway Park RIP. Johnny Pesky you will always be loved by Red Sox Nation !
Red Sox Nation is still reeling from the loss of its greatest ambassador, Johnny Pesky, one week ago. So, after a week of tears and pleasant rememberances, Pesky's passing was honored for the final time in a private funeral in Swampscott -- following a public wake just days ago -- featuring many mem...
Red Sox Nation..I view the members of this Imperious Nation as one that doesnt view itself as cosmically cursed and expects to win always,What we have here is a culture of pessimism being replaced by entitlement? They tasted the good champagne and is thirsty for more.Sooo now we have a civic emergency in the Nation. Maybe the owners that started this entitlement theme should seriously consider selling the Sox to Bill Parcells ,taking the money and buying a few Bed N Breakfast operations on Nantucket and Hyannis
Well the Red Sox Nation is done, this overpaid, overexposed team, is spinning no place. Red Sox fans are furious that their team is sub .500 and that once again the New York Yankees are on top of the division. Too much back-biting and snappiness of players and management. Another season has fallen apart, the feud between the Yanks and Boston just petered out. Perhaps Bobby Valentine can start a bed and breakfast in Hyannis! The Red Sox Nation must wait until next Feb to get their hopes up again. Fenway should be empty. the meanest
Its official Red Sox Nation. Crawford going under knife on Tuesday. Thus, endeth the 2012 Saga of Carl and his elbow. Also, it seems that the organization has put its hands up and are tossing in the towel. Now on the three remaining home stands let's see a reduction in concession prices as fan compensation for minor league baseball the rest of the way.
On my blog: There's only one man who can save Red Sox Nation ... Terry Francona.
A great day in The Red Sox Nation and it was on FOX so I was able to watch this glorious victory over the Bronx Bombers.
The Red Sox Nation gets thunderstruck by the majestic Yankees and their five home run performance! Bronx Bombers win, oh the humanity!! The Stadium was packed, the fans love to see Boston and Bobby Valentine! More beer in the clubhouse please! the meanest
Red Sox Nation is dillusional. That team is just not very good. Stop pretending a manager or a message will fix ur problems
Hello Red Sox Nation- Well, the Team of destint just nailed the coffn sit on you team of underacheivers tonight. I must say that you have the perfect manager to run your team into the gound! Sleep well and just remember, your team could do quute well in the AA league. Keep it in mind!!!
Red Sox Nation lost a pillar of its community this past week.
This is how low the Red Sox bullpen has sunk:
Red Sox Vs Yankees, 13 bACK in he East and onkly 6 1/2 in the wild card with 44 games left to play. This series is the chance for us to get hot!# Lets Go Sox,# Keep the FaithUpSox Nation

I will spend the night in the state of Massachusetts tonight for the first time since the night before I met my wife. A lot sure has happened in the 58 months since I was last in the epicenter of Red Sox Nation.
“No matter how dire things might look for the Red Sox, Pedroia just keeps plugging away.” that's why the nation loves him!!
Hey Red Sox nation I got a question for you? Who are the fastest two Boston Red Sox players?
the problem is that Uncle Larry thinks the pink hats are the true fan base. the die hards arent Red Sox Nation

Shout out to Lucchino, Henry, Bobby, Pedroia, Ortiz and Agon. I am sick and tired of the all the backpedaling comments and damage control BS re: the players meeting in NY. SHUT UP, Red Sox Nation doesn't care anymore. The season has been dreadful enough. Glad when's it over. Go Pats.
A great cause that has visible impact to many lives... please support.
Things are crumbling in Red Sox Nation. The fans aren’t happy with the players, the players aren’t happy with management, and the manager isn’t really happy with anything or anyone. It’s the Summer of Discontent. But none of this is terribly surprising. After the cir***stances that saw Terry Francona and Theo Epstein take their leave, followed by Beer and Fried Chicken Gate, no one was expecting a smooth season. And things never got better after Bobby Valentine’s hiring, as his media and player management skills quickly found him at odds with clubhouse leaders, as well as Boston area fans. Today’s report from Jeff Passan reveals just how bad things have become. As someone who will glance at the USA Today whenever I’m in a hotel, I feel like I’m an expert in the field of messy geo-political situations. Hence, here is the Red Sox crisis timeline: July 22: Adrian Gonzalez, on behalf of the team, sends a text message to ownership complaining about Bobby Valentine after Valentine lets Jon Leste ...
It's official. Jeremiah is now playing for the Red Sox 8up coach pitch in Denton,Tx. Did I mention that the one the only often imitated never duplicated Jimmy Lopez is not only the Assistant Coach but the pitcher as well. Red Sox Nation!!!
You know who I have not heard from in awhile? Red Sox Nation!! How are you all doing up there? Well I guess I should say down there..The Basement is cold and lonely huh? Baltimore Orioles and I have been enjoying these spankings all season!!
So is this the end for Red Sox Nation? If so, HOORAY! *Uncorks Champagne*
A sad day in Red Sox Nation: Johnny Pesky passes away at age 92
Red Sox Nation...uhm.good thing its football season.LMAO !
It's been a hard season to watch, but better than the 1926 Red Sox season (46 wins 107 losses) or more recently 1997 (78 wins, 84 losses). It would be nice if everyone got along, but that's not going to happen. It's time to shut up and play ball or Red Sox Nation is going to tune out and watch more football. Oh, and if that was Lester throwing seeds at a coach, he needs to publicly apologize. This is what being a Red Sox fan is all about. Pain.
So all you Lansdowne Street Wives Club ( the entire Red Sox team. Shut up- quit saying "she said this, she said that. Grow up, stop running up the back stairs "Daddy they said this about so and so". Start acting like grown men and earn your money. Like Mike Lynch said on TV last night. "THEY don't want to play for Bobby V. Well not a problem, they " haven played for him all year". No problem haven't done anything all year. Look yourselves in a mirror, you make the call, play your hearts out, or sit back and collect your pay check and do nothing. RED Sox nation is very upset with you"ladies".
