(PHOTO) Iron Man To Save Red Sox Season?

With the Boston Red Sox mired in last place with one of the worst records in baseball, it appears help may be on the way as Iron Man showed up at Fenway Park Monday night.

What we really want to know, however, is Pepper Potts in attendance?

(VIDEO) Throwback Thursday: 10 Years Ago Today This Happened!

calm

It was 10 years ago today that Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees rolled into Fenway Park thinking they were the Red Sox daddy only to leave with a face full of Jason Varitek’s mitt.

That moment seemed to energize the Sox (who were 9 games out at the time) toward their first World Series championship in 86 years.

(VIDEO) Girl Shoves Foul Ball in her Bra

Last night was terrible night for Red Sox fans as Boston was pounded by the Cubs 16-9 to complete a 3-game sweep at the Fens. However, one fan got her money’s worth when she snagged a foul ball then put it away for safekeeping.

(VIDEO) Big Papi Big Pimpin’ on a Walk

Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz has no time for walks, he’s got places to go and steroid investigations to conduct.

Big Papi should have kept on walking out of Fenway Park and right down Yawkey Way as the Sox could only score one run. Off the Cubs. The Cubs!

The World Series Champions have gone from the Penthouse to the outhouse in a few short months and are now 7 1/2 games out in the AL East.

(VIDEO) The Legend Of Brock Holt Continues To Grow

The Sox went on to beat the Twins 2-1.

Game of Thrones in Boston as Sox Fans (and Writers) Ask for Farrell’s Head on a Pike Ned Stark-Style

aapike

It’s tough to be king. It’s even tougher in the Game of Thrones-like city of Boston.

For the first time since September 2012, the World Champion Boston Red Sox were shut out at home this weekend. Despite a valiant effort from Jon Lester Sunday in a 4-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, Boston fell below .500 (2-4) for the first time since Bobby V. was crashing the Sox ship into an iceberg.

With the season being so young, sports writers are ready to cash in their press passes and write off the season, and fans are more than ready to burn manager John Farrell in effigy.

aabuttonEveryone needs to chill out, and here’s why.  The team lost three straight games five different times in last year’s World Series win, but never lost four straight at any point.  The last time the Sox dropped 4 in a row was in 1984, and any Sox fan worth his/her salt already knows that the  ’84-’85 seasons never happened (damn you, Bill Buckner).  So, what is it with fans and writers so eager to call for blood and throw their hands in the air?

Let’s look at this objectively, shall we?  Between the second and seventh innings yesterday, Lester retired 17 straight batters, 5 of which were strike outs.  Sure the Sox offense couldn’t get anything going against Yovani Gallardo, but when was the last time Lester got any run support in any of his beast-mode outings?  And ok, Clay Buchholz soiled the bed in his sad display of pitching Saturday night, but is that a surprise either?  Buchy has never been one to allow Sox fans to unclench their b-holes when he is on the mound. Saturday night’s challenging outing from him was no different.

Look, the season is still too young, and for everyone to expect the Sox to come out guns blazing, win every game by blowout, and not drop a series here or there, is just plain ridiculous.  Wait until October before you want to serve up Farrell to King Joffrey.

In the meantime, relax, enjoy the fact that it is baseball season, and continue to refer to the Sox as “The Defending World Series Champions”.

(VIDEO) Red Sox Tip Caps to Marathon Victims, Boston Firefighters on Opening Day

The Boston Red Sox celebrated their 2013 World Series championship at Fenway Park on Friday.

Overall, it was a classy and understated ceremony. The Sox got their rings, the banner was raised and the team honored the victims of last years Boston Marathon bombing as well as the Boston Fire Department, who lost two heroes in a Back Bay fire last week.

The Red Sox would go on to drop the home opener to the Brewers 6-2.

(VIDEO) Watch Time-Lapse Lego Fenway Get Built

Just in time for opening day at Fenway Park comes this cool time-lapse video of America’s most beloved ballpark being constructed entirely out of Legos.

The project took 28,000 Lego bricks and 450 hours from start to finish. The replica Fenway can be seen at the Legoland Discovery Center in Boston.

I’ve never been too good with the Lego building – just don’t have the patience. However, after a few scotches I did make this:
