Shane Victorino had a GoPro camera tag along with him from the final strike of Game 6 of the World Series up to the duck boat parade through Boston. Now you can experience what it's like having Ace of Spades champagne poured on you, without any of the stickiness. The locker room celebration features so much booze,…
You'll find this full-page ad in today's St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and it seems the Red Sox aren't done trolling everyone. "Your region, its people, and the entire Cardinals organization represent everything that's great about baseball." Damn it. We just spent a month breaking them down, and now Cards fans are going to…
These Red Sox bros are the best, because they're everything you think they'll be. When it comes to describing the feeling of winning a World Series, the first kid just knows it can't be captured in words. He would know, experiencing this team's highs and lows since 1988. But the second guy is the real star.
Billy from Lynn woke up this morning, presumably after a long night of celebrating the most unlikely of championships, and was so annoyed by John Farrell's moves in the postseason that he just had to call up WEEI to complain.
It's probably too late now, but since the Red Sox have won three championships over the past 10 seasons, perhaps this advice will come in handy again in the near future: On the night of a possible World Series clincher, don't park anywhere near Fenway.
Everybody say hi to Bobby Metzinger. St. Louis police arrested him over the weekend and charged him with making terroristic threats against the city of Boston from his Twitter account. The 30-year-old former PR professional was once highlighted by a St. Louis television station for having landed a job because of his…
The St. Louis Cardinals' trip to Boston today for tomorrow's World Series game hit a snag after a mechanical delay kept their plane on the runway for six hours. A few players chronicled their experience through tweets. Pizza played a key role.
Via Awful Announcing, go directly to the 2-minute mark of the video below. "That's silly," Cardinals play-by-play man Mike Shannon can be heard saying during the KMOX broadcast. He was talking about Mike Napoli holding Kolten Wong at first base. Shannon also laughed. He then described what happened next.
Heading into three straight nights in a National League park, John Farrell said he'd name his first baseman before each game. David Ortiz is 37, and coming off Achilles and heel injuries, and hasn't played three consecutive games in the field in years. Mike Napoli was raking through the first two rounds of the…
Before Saturday, no World Series game had ever ended on an obstruction call. Before last night, no World Series game had ever ended on a pickoff. Tonight: bird-related interference? It's shaping up to be one of those series.
Koji Uehara's pickoff of Kolten Wong to close out Game 4 was the first game-ending pickoff in MLB postseason history. It was more fun to watch on FOX Deportes, too.
Red Sox mix up lineup: Jonny Gomes is in left field, and Daniel Nava's in right. Shane Victorino will sit due to lower back tightness. David Ross replaces Jarrod Saltalamacchia behind the plate.
When Red Sox reliever Brandon Workman went out to bat against Trevor Rosenthal in the top of the ninth, it looked like a mistake. Your first thought was one of concern. Was Red Sox manager John Farrell locked in the bathroom? Was he perhaps trapped beneath a large object? When Workman, batting for the first time in…
The Cardinals took Game 3 of the World Series on a walkoff obstruction call after Allen Craig tripped over Will Middlebrooks heading to home plate. The umpires all stood by Jim Joyce's call afterward, but what does the rulebook say?
After David Ortiz's sixth-inning two-run homer put the Red Sox in front, Boston's reliable bullpen was in a position to take a 2-0 series lead to St. Louis. Craig Breslow relieved John Lackey with two baserunners and one out in the seventh, and everything fell apart.
The next time someone argues that instant replay will unacceptably slow down baseball, remember this: Between the umpire conference and Mike Matheny's argument, it took four minutes and 26 seconds to get an obvious call right.
The World Series begins tonight, which means it's as good an occasion as any to look back at one of the more memorable moments from Cardinals manager Mike Matheny's playing career: The night a 90-something-mph fastball hit him square in the face and he barely reacted.
Though it will feature the two best teams in baseball, this year's World Series will be painful for non-fans of the Red Sox or Cardinals. It's the least appealing matchup out of this postseason's 10 teams. It'll achieve better ratings than Giants-Rangers, sure, but why should any casual viewer feel compelled to watch…
