Seems Bobby Valentine told ESPN:

I would do anything to change the numbers. I’d sell my soul.

Where have we heard that before?

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

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.

Boston Police tweeted this afternoon:

Missing: Wally the Green Monster, If seen please call Boston Police.

About an hour later, police updated: Wally was back, safe and sound at Fenway. What at first sounded like a case of a dementia-suffering Wally, or perhaps a cruel prank by a Yankees fan, turned out to have a much simpler/stupider explanation: An employee who... Read more

A sore-eared Fenway resident complains:

Helicopter tours over Fenway Park creating massive noise pollution to neighborhood residents. Aren't there regulations against this?

Ed. note: Today's game would suggest the Sox are doing their best to end this problem as quickly as possible.

Kevin Youkilis addresses Red Sox fans.

That final game at Fenway was the most emotional day of my life on the baseball field. It could not have been scripted any better. And to all those kids out there in Red Sox Nation, I can give you my Dad’s advice. "Life is like a throw to first base, always aim high."

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

A group of Kenyan students recently re-enacted the last two plays of game 6 of the 1986 World Series, and yes, OK, it is probably the single cutest recreation of that ill fated night ever, but still.
