The Red Sox traded outfielder Shane Victorino to the Angels in exchange for infielder Josh Rutledge and cash considerations. This is good news for Victorino, who just came off the DL and is going from a last-place team to a first-place squad, but Victorino still got emotional about his time with the Sox.
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,…
A priceless photo of a shirtless Mike Napoli smoking a butt and roaming the streets of Boston surfaced Saturday night, but how did he get to that state? Here's a crude timeline, starting after the Red Sox championship parade ended.

Sick of seeing his overly-manicured facial hair plastered up all over Chicago, the suspected Wrigley Field beer chucker has turned himself in. We'll stay with this story all night if we have to! God, I feel like Nancy Grace.
