If you're a fan of Boston sports last night was a great night. You've got the Bruins in Game 1 of a playoff series against the New York Rangers winning in overtime with a goal from Brad Marchand. Then you flip to the Red Sox, who were trailing 3-1 in the top of the 9th, and watch a Will Middlebrooks double to put the Sox up 4-3 to come away with a victory. Two wins in dramatic fashion in the span of around 5 minutes. It was a great night.
After one of the best Aprils in franchise history, it's been a tough May so far for the Red Sox. One of the major differences is the health of the club, most notably the closer position. Reports out today have Joel Hanrahan done for the season after Tommy John surgery and Andrew Bailey is targeted to return Monday but has health concerns of his own. Hopefully Bailey will return and be back to what we saw earlier in the season as there aren't many other options right now.
Again, it's still too early to get a full grasp on the team but there have been a handful of moments like last night that excite you. Especially last night. On the road against a very good closer in Fernando Rodney, they found a way to win and it may have been their most dramatic win so far in 2013.

It was a rough weekend for Boston sports teams.

So far, I'm wrong about the Boston Red Sox this season and I'm thrilled about it.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves by putting the Red Sox in the World Series just yet but through six games over two roads trips with a record of 4-2, they've been better than expected.

Red Sox vs. Yankees in the Bronx. While there's always a lot of excitement to start a new year, both of these teams have major issues and injuries and by most "experts" aren't given a shot to make the playoffs let alone the World Series.

With less than three weeks to go until the regular season, the majority of teams throughout Major League Baseball have issues and the Boston Red Sox are definitely one of those teams.

Red Sox DH "Big Papi" David Ortiz called in to my radio show to talk about the Red Sox offseason, the status of his Achilles injury, his thoughts on John Farrell being named the new manager and more.

Is anyone else not excited at all by the Red Sox offseason?
I was really interested to see what this front office would do with all the freed up money from the LA Dodgers deal and so far I just don't...

After a 69 win season and shedding 250 million dollars in salaries I, like the rest of you, are interested to see what the Boston Red Sox are planning to do this offseason.

"But we know it's going to come down to the quality of players and the roster when it comes to the wins…"
That was the first sentence from John Farrell after he was named the next manager of the...

After the biggest collapse by a team in September in major league history, who would have thought the Red Sox would follow it up with one of the worst full seasons in the history of its franchise?
September 11, 2012
The Red Sox have lost 11 of their last 12. They are 15 games under .500 at 63-78. To say this season is a disaster is an understatement.

Wow -- just wow.
When I heard the initial rumors of this blockbuster trade between the Red Sox late Friday night I thought there was no way it would ever get done. Not so much from the Red Sox but why the Dodgers would take on...

This season has been a never ending saga of negativeness both on and off the field for the Boston Red Sox. September last year was the worst in baseball history but this may be one of the most disliked Red Sox teams in franchise history from...

Previewing the season you would look at this Red Sox series with the Yankees in the Bronx as a "must see" circle on the schedule. AL East rivals heading into the last month of play neck and neck battling it out for the top spot in the...

A 10 game homestand ends with the Boston Red Sox going 4-6. In the words of Mike Singletary: "Can't do it"
July 30, 2012
Of course the Red Sox would take two of three against the Yankees this weekend giving us the smallest bit of hope for a late season run.

Great win last night for Boston.

Let's face it. The first half of the Red Sox season was painful.
July 6, 2012
Well that West Coast trip was a disaster. 2-5 against Seattle and Oakland including a sweep job by the A's is not how the Red Sox wanted to end the month after showing some signs of improvement throughout June.
