Here is some food for thought just in time for the second half of the season. Is this Lobel coming out with a juicy story, or is it a case of Lobel being back on the sauce? Boston.com - According to former WBZ sports director Bob Lobel, Manny Ramirez was fined a six-figure amount for his […]

We at the ever-popular Boston Red Sox blog have taken it upon ourselves to find out what is ailing Jason Varitek. We have seen slumps from him before, but this one has been an riddle wrapped inside an enigma, inside of a paradox.
We have traveled near and far. Gone places many would not think of going. Sacrificed our bodies for any nugget of information to this curse. We are glad to say that we are safely back in our offices and - we have unearthed the cruel beast that has stricken Varitek with the inability to move the bat from his shoulders. We now know the reason he swings widely; almost purposely missing the ball as if someone has taken away his sight.
I know the masses have been sitting on the edge of their seats all day in anticipating of the announcement. Without further ado I bring to you the good news.
The winners of our contest are…
Matt H-C- This guy attacked our contest with such fury it can only be compared to the days my dad would use his fists in anger on our living room walls while watching the New England Patriots. (Did I say that out loud?)
ncsoxfan67 - Well it really wasnt furious, nor did it even slightly resemble anger, but this contestant came in second. Do people in NC even know what baseball is? I kid.
We hate to say we told you so, but it could happen.
The team is in the midst of it’s annual “Holy Shit, This Team Has Serious Issues” stretch. Cue up Shaughnessy and his rants - you know they are coming soon. Fellas, the long wooden objects you hold in your hands - those are bats. The quick rundown? You want to try and use them in a swinging motion to hit that white thing they are throwing at you.
Is it a case of the “chicken little’s”, or are our concerns over the Red Sox legit?
The Rumble in Tampa starts tonight, 7:05pm.
Tampa has their pitching lined up as they will mound Shields, Garza and Kazmir. Boston will have Masterson, Wake, and Matsuzaka going.
Couple fantastic decisions last night by the Red Sox organization.
First, they decide to drop the appeal on Sean Casey’s suspension. This normally would have been fine, but as luck had it - Youkilis goes out with an eye injury.
Now here is my question to you - did you find it a little overly precautionary to pull Youkilis out of the game? If you saw the “play” unfold you noticed it wasn’t a hard throw from Lowell. Lowell even describes it as a lob throw.
Tonight the Red Sox welcome the Arizona Diamondbacks for a 3-game series. Let’s take a quick look at the match-up.
Boston is wrapping up a 6-game home stand before they embark on a very tough 10-game road trip. The Red Sox sit atop 1st place in the American League East with a 47-31 record. They hold a very tough 29-9 home record and are 6-4 in their last ten games.
Arizona is sporting a 39-37 record but are holding on to 1st place in the National League West. Like most teams, their road record is not very good at 15-22. They just got swept at Minnesota and are 4-6 in their last ten games.
