Boston The Victim Of A Five Run Sixth From Rangers
All things looked to be going considerably well for John Smoltz and the Boston Red Sox heading into the sixth inning, but a lead off home run from Michael Young and back-to-back shots from David Murphy and Jarrod Saltalamacchia sent Smoltz to the showers and the Sox to the loss column.
Boston held a 2-1 lead before giving up five runs in the sixth inning. The Red Sox put up one run in the eighth on a Kevin Youkilis, 2-for-4, single but couldn’t muster enough hits to mount a comeback. Kevin Millwood took the win for Texas with C.J. Wilson recording his eighth save. Smoltz is now 1-3 with the Sox since joining Boston a little under a month ago.
The Red Sox have now lost three straight and are scuffling at the plate. It will be interesting to see what Theo Epstein and the Red Sox do between now and the trading deadline to address their hitting woes. Josh Beckett will look to right the ship on Tuesday as he takes the mound for Boston.
Boston Bruins Re-Sign Matt Hunwick
Matt Hunwick had to shut it down earlier than expected in the 2008-2009 playoffs due to a ruptured spleen, but the Boston Bruins liked what they saw from anyway, as the restricted free agent put up six goals and 21 assists in 53 games last season for the B’s.
The former University of Michigan star made only one playoff appearance against the Montreal Canadiens before having to remove his spleen. His signing could very well bring about the end of Phil Kessel’s tenure in Boston due to salary cap space. Hunwick’s two-year extension will cost the Bruins roughy $2.9 million with the defense-man making $1.35 million next season.

Ex-Pacers Guard Coming To Boston
In an effort to shore up the Celtics back-court, Danny Ainge signed free-agent guard Marquis Daniels to a contract worth $1.9 million. Daniels will receive a biannual exception if the Celtics and Pacers cannot work out a sign-and-trade deal that would negotiate different terms for Daniels’ deal.
The free-agent will serve as a backup to both Paul Pierce and Ray Allen and could be part of a sign-and-trade that involves sending Brian Scalabrine to Indiana. Daniels averaged just under 14 points last season for Indiana and is part of an offseason where Danny Ainge and the Celtics are revamping and adding significant depth to Doc Rivers bench.
The only other questions that remain for the C’s are the futures of Glen Davis and Leon Powe in Boston and whether or not Ainge will sign another point guard to back up Rajon Rondo.
Contract Talks Called Off With Left Fielder
After failing to sign Jason Bay to a contract extension in Spring Training, Theo Epstein and company tried pursuing Bay again in the late June but talks have come to a halt by the end of the All-Star break and it looks like Sox fans will have to wait until after the 2009 season to see if number 44 will return to Boston.
Bay is set to become a free agent after the season and it seems as if Sox management and Bay’s agent cannot come to a common assessment on the market value for elite outfielders like Jason Bay.
Boston will certainly have to ante up J.D. Drew type money if they want to keep Bay manning the green monster for years to come. Of course, that will be up to Theo Epstein and Larry Lucchino, so for Sox fans, in Theo we trust.
Boston Red Sox: 54-34
New York Yankees: 51-37
Tampa Bay Rays: 48-41
Toronto Blue Jays: 44-46
Baltimore Orioles: 40-48
With a little more than half of the season completed when the Red Sox take the field on Friday against the Toronto Blue Jays, Boston finds themselves three games ahead of their rival, the New York Yankees.
But everyone knows that it doesn’t matter where you stand on July 16, it matters where you stand when game 162 is completed. So with the local nine set to make a run at their third championship in six years, Boston will need to stay healthy, hungry, and hitting. There are 15 days left until the trading deadline and it will be interesting to see what Theo Epstein and the Sox do in regards to the trading frenzy.
One thing is for certain, however, and that’s a guarantee that the second half of 2009 will hold plenty of drama between Boston and the rest of the American League East. Enjoy baseball fans.
Lowell And Lowrie On The Comeback Trail
The Boston Red Sox went into the All-Star break firing on all cylinders, leading the AL East by 3.5 games over the New York Yankees. So with everything going so well, how could things get better?
With the return of Mike Lowell and Jed Lowrie.
According to Terry Francona, Mike Lowell will start for the Sox on Friday and Jed Lowrie should be back with the big club by the weekend. So, with things going so well without the two infielders, Sox fans have even more to look forward to with the return of the injured. Here’s more on what Francona had to say.
I am a little confused by the slogan “Show me Yoooouuuk”?
I think Nike could have done a lot better on this one. Cool poster, bad slogan.
