Boston Red Sox: The best is yet to come
isports web - almost 3 years
At 8-5, the Boston Red Sox sit atop the American League after recording a series split with the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park. The rotation, for the most part, has turned out exactly how people predicted. Quality starts have been hard to come by with the rotation of Clay Buchholz, Rick Porcello, Justin Masterson, Wade Miley and Joe Kelly all struggling at different times through April. The early formula for Red Sox’s wins has been for starting pitchers to limit the damage and have Boston’s lineup bail them out. Red Sox fans should expect to see a lot of 9-7 or 12-9 games this year. And so far, that strategy has paid off. Boston leads the division and sits at third in the American League. And they haven’t even begun to hit their stride. Everyone knew the Red Sox would score a boatload of runs this year. Following the offseason additions of Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval, Boston is sixth in the Major Leagues in runs scored. And they’ve done that with major contributors in their ...

Josh Donaldson for Most Improved Player
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
The major awards season has ended with the MVPs, and the Oakland A’s were shut out, despite tying for third best record in baseball. The A’s best shot was probably Josh Reddick for the right-field Gold Glove, but Shane Victorino was off the charts statistically. Jed Lowrie might have been a better Silver Slugger choice than J.J. Hardy, but it’s not unreasonable to take a shortstop with 25 home runs. And Bob Melvin could hardly expect a second straight Manager of the Year title. Still, in looking at it, there’s one prize that should have gone to an Athletic. Unfortunately, it’s an award that’s given in the NBA but not Read More

Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
BOSTON -- BOSTON (AP) — World Series MVP David Ortiz and Boston Red Sox teammate Shane Victorino had their beards shaved for charity Monday to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombings in April. The "shave offs" occurred at Gillette's world headquarters. The Boston company donated $100,000 to the One Fund, which is assisting victims and their families of the bombings on April 15. Three people were killed and over 260 injured near the finish line that day. Ortiz, fresh off his third World Series title with the Red Sox, joked that it's a perfect look for his offseason. "I'm going down south — some place warm," he said. "I feel fresh. I've got to keep it real. It's not that cold down there." Sitting in one of two barber's chairs to Ortiz's right, Victorino appeared a bit shocked when he looked into a hand-held mirror and realized his beard and goatee were completely gone. "I'm a World Series champion and I look like I'm 12-years old," he said. Ortiz had his most of his be...
