Red Sox And Empire View For Next Cuban Star

Red Sox And Empire View For Next Cuban Star

The battle was engaged on Saturday. The Red Sox sent five key people (including Vice President of Player Personnel Allard Baird) to watch Rusney Castillo's showcase in Miami, The Evil Ones sent four. The 5'9", 27-year old CF speedster put on quite a display—two of his HRs cleared the scoreboard in left field at Alex Rodriguez Park at the University of Miami. Another shot landed in a parking garage in right. This guy could be picked up at any time—as his signing would not factor against a team's international bonus pool. It's estimated that he could match Yasiel Puig money—but more...

A-Rod vs. Varitek turns 10

NEW YORK -- Think about where you were 10 years ago today. There is a pretty good chance you were in front of a TV or you later heard about the fight between the Yankees and the Red Sox that featured none other than Alex Rodriguez and Jason Varitek. Joe McDonald did a long piece for ESPN Boston on the anniversary. It was the height of the Yankees-Red Sox recent saga, as Rodriguez is the biggest figure in the rivalry since Babe Ruth. McDonald writes: The image of Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek shoving his mitt into the face of Alex Rodriguez has become an iconic symbol of the storied rivalry...

The A-Rod VS. Varitek Brawl: One Decade Later

It's an iconic image burned into the brain of every Red Sox fan over the age of 10—Good versus Evil incarnate. Ten years ago today, Jason Varitek squared off with Alex Rodriguez in a classic brawl that can legitimately be called the watershed moment of the 2004 Championship season. When the game ended on Bill Mueller's walk-off home run, The Idiots had been galvanized. They were a team—a Championship-Calibre team. Bronson Arroyo drilled The Fraudulent One with the Sox trailing 3-0 in the third inning. Rodriguez started to first base—while shouting an expletive-deleted tirade at Arroyo....

Cashman: 'I have more work to do'

NEW YORK -- Yankees GM Brian Cashman admitted today that the acquisition of Chase Headley was the culmination of a two-year pursuit that began when Alex Rodriguez had his second hip surgery before the start of the 2012 season. But by no means does he consider the 2014 Yankees a finished product. "I have more work to do," he said. "I’m going to still continue to try to improve on what we have." In the past couple of weeks, Cashman has added a starting pitcher, Brandon McCarthy, and Headley without giving up very much.
