Betts, Bogaerts and Bradley. Those were among the hopeful signs for the future even though the Red Sox again finished last.
The Red Sox faced a number of questions heading into the season. Unfortunately, the answers they got weren't exactly satisfactory.
3yCody Ross parked his 9th ball Tuesday night, his first game back from coming off of the DL. The Sox will benefit greatly from having Ross back in the lineup.
3yRyan Kalish hadn't manned the Fenway Park outfield for quite some time, so you can understand why he was a little nervous out there. It may have shown at times, but Kalish got the job done.
3yClay Buchholz couldn't shake the notion that the Miami Marlins had him figured out -- and it almost cost the Red Sox a victory. Luckily, the offense had his back, as they have for much of the season.
3yDustin Pedroia left Tuesday's game against the Marlins late in the game after doing something to his thumb that Valentine said caused more fear than pain for Pedroia. The Sox are waiting to hear more information.
3yThe Red Sox phase out all the noise and get down to business at Fenway Park Tuesday night, beating the Marlins, 7-5. David Ortiz, Kelly Shoppach, and Cody Ross all homer in the win.
3yRyan Kalish is back up in the big leagues, but he says he's working on keeping his emotions in check up here -- not too high, not too low.
3yAlways-outspoken Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen isn't questioning the innocence of Roger Clemens after he was acquitted of perjury charges. Guillen also says he'd vote him into the Hall of Fame.
