Damon: Sox would have won one more

Talking prior to the Tigers series opening game against the Red Sox at Fenway Park Friday night, Johnny Damon said that if he would have remained a member of the Sox following the 2005 season the team might have won more than just the 2007 world championship.


"I actually think they would have won one more here," Damon said. "During that offseason we just acquired Josh Beckett, Mike Lowell, and I was coming off a solid year. Signing me would have been a very easy thing to do. But with stuff going on with the front office here, was Theo [Epstein]here or was he not, all that kind of stuff. But you know what, things happen for a reason. I love playing here. I went to New York, which was against a lot of people's wishes. But I fell in love with New York also. I'm one of those players I guess you could say like David Cone who can go anywhere and make the best of it, and that's what I did. The fortunate thing was that I did get to...

Lowell on season: 'It's been terrible'

Red Sox corner infielder Mike Lowell won't be activated for Friday night's game. The team will wait for the July 31 trading deadline dust to settle before making a decision about a roster move involving the 2007 World Series MVP.


Lowell understands that he could be traded in the next 24 hours. Indeed, after a rehab assignment in which he hit .500 with four homers, he hopes for just such an outcome, given that he is convinced that he can produce if given consistent at-bats but recognizes that he cannot have such an opportunity unless one of his Red Sox teammates gets injured.


"it would be pretty mean-spirited if [Lowell's best-case scenario] had anything to do with the Red Sox, because how am I going to play any of the positions that I play with [David Ortiz] and [Kevin Youkilis] and [Adrian Beltre] doing a good job?" Lowell said. "I don’t think anything I can say Red Sox-related would seem...

Gammons: Sox won't add bat
By: DJ Bean

Hall of Fame baseball analyst Peter Gammons of NESN and the MLB Network joined The Big Show on Friday, offering up his thoughts on what the Red Sox and their competitors may do before Saturday's trade deadline. Though he stated he didn't think the team would acquire a bat for the outfield, Gammons noted that the team would likely look for bullpen arms.


"I don't think they're going to get the outfield bat that they'd like to get," Gammons said. "There was some talk today that once the Astros made that deal to get [Brett] Wallace to play first base they made it clear to everybody that they want to move Lance Berkman, who has not had a good year and really only can hit left-handed now. … Apparently that doesn't fit because he can't really play the outfield. I'm not really sure where Berkman's going, but my guess is they don't come up an outfield and they'll pick up a reliever or two.

Ellsbury moving to Pawtucket Saturday

Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, following a three-game spell in the Rookie Level Gulf Coast League, was scheduled to be examined in Boston on Friday by the team's medical staff. Barring an unexpected setback, he will be transferred to Triple-A Pawtucket to continue his rehab on Saturday.


Ellsbury, who has appeared in just nine games this year, has been on the disabled list since May 28 due to rib fractures.
