Beckett photos were 50% off today.
Gordon Edes tweets the Sox are sending Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto to Los Angeles for
dinner for six at Sonic several players.
Joy of Sox is no longer getting much joy from Sox games - and not just because of what's going on on the field:
NESN gives us worthless "tours" of concrete hallways in other stadiums and asinine non-baseball segments. Worse than that, the network often fails to show the action on the field.
Announcers Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy have become sad parodies of... Read more
Steve Buckley at the Herald tweets Pesky died this afternoon. He was 92.
Comcast Sportsnet reports on the grim scene in the clubhouse last night after yet another stupid loss:
Lackey was so busted up after the latest defeat that he was strutting around the clubhouse with a can of Bud Light in each hand, or what is known as "double-fisting" on every college campus in the history of mankind.... Read more

Boston Police tweeted this afternoon:

Mats Tolander posts some photos of Nava in a gray plaid shirt.

Finally a win, thanks to the newest Pedro.
Joy of Sox reports on an effort to shame the shameless during the series against the Yankees:
Four games, on four networks. Bring your anti-Boston Sports Media signs to the ballpark! Or make them once you're inside. The media's ego has exploded, and they're making not only themselves but us look like morons. It's time to let them know that they don't represent Red... Read more
Darnell McDonald tweeted shortly after 2 p.m. today:
Just got off the phone w/ Mr. Cashman Happy to announce I'm a new Member of the N.Y.Y. #Happy4th #blessed
The Globe reports:
Obama thanks Boston for sending Kevin Youkilis to Chicago, gets booed
Last hurrahs are sad. Here's hoping he rips the covers off the balls in Chicago.
