Bay on Yankees: 'Right now, they're definitely better than we are'

With an 8-4 loss in the rubber match of a three-game series against the Yankees at Fenway on Sunday (recap), the Red Sox have now dropped six of their last seven to New York. Boston acknowledges that the start of the season, when they reeled off eight straight victories against the Yankees, now feels increasingly distant.
 
"They just beat us," said Sox outfielder Jason Bay. "Early on, we were the better team when we played them and right now they’re the better team. That’s really just the way it goes. Over the course of a season, it’s not always the best team winning. It’s the better team at the time. And right now, they’re definitely better than we are."
 
With the loss, the Sox dropped to 7.5 games back in the American League East. The likelihood of winning the division now represents an increasingly...

Report: Red Sox deal for Wagner in jeopardy

According to Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com, the Red Sox' efforts to acquire reliever Billy Wagner from the Mets are in "serious jeopardy" due to Boston's unwillingness to grant two conditions that Wagner and his agent, Bean Stringfellow, have established for the pitcher to waive his no-trade clause. Wagner and Stringfellow want the Sox to guarantee that they will not pick up his $8 million option for 2010, and also want the Sox to commit to not offering the pitcher salary arbitration.
 
The two conditions, according to the report, are designed to make the pitcher as attractive as possible as he seeks a job as a closer for the 2010 season. The Sox, on the other hand, would likely want to have either the chance to control Wagner's 2010 rights on what could be a relatively affordable $8 million option (a reasonable...

Peabody thumped at LLWS, 14-0
By: admin

Luke Ramirez struck out 11 and Andy Rios hit two two-run homers in a 12-run sixth inning that led Chula Vista, Calif., past Peabody, Mass., 14-0 at the Little League World Series on Sunday. The win clinched a berth in the next round for California. Sunday's game was tight early after California's potent bats couldn't get going against Massachusetts starter Matt Hosman, who struck out 10 in four-plus innings. Things changed in the sixth, when California sent 17 hitters to the plate against two relievers. Twelve straight batters reached base and 11 runs scored with two outs.
