Jacoby Ellsbury gets much warmer reception that Johnny Damon in his return: ‘The fans were great’

Johnny Damon had warned Jacoby Ellsbury before the game Tuesday that he would find out just how vicious Red Sox fans could be for leaving Boston for the Yankees. After all, when Damon signed with the Bronx Bombers prior to the 2006 season, he was roundly booed and excoriated every time he set foot inside [...]

David Robertson said he was relieved to have returned from a left groin strain quickly and didn’t think he’d be rusty when the Yankees called on him to close. Robertson was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list before Tuesday night’s game at Fenway, and the return of his power arm “obviously...

Masahiro Tanaka: American batters admire home runs more than Japanese hitters

David Ortiz took 28.06 seconds to round the bases after clubbing a 482-foot home run off Tanaka Tuesday

Notes: Tanaka won't soon forget Papi

BOSTON -- It wasn't so much the shot, it as the demonstration. That's the takeaway I got from Masahiro's postgame news conference after his masterful, 7-1/3 inning performance against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night. Tanaka allowed two runs on seven hits, struck out seven and, as usual, walked no one. His only anxious moment came in the fourth inning when first David Ortiz and then Mike Napoli crushed his fastball for home runs, Ortiz's being measured at a majestic 482 feet.

Coffey: Jacoby has one Ell of a return to Fenway vs. former team

The old brick place on Lansdowne St. isn’t his office anymore, and it didn’t take the center fielder for the New York Yankees long to find that out. At 10 minutes after 7 p.m. Tuesday night, Jacoby Ellsbury, No. 22 in road grays, came to the plate for the 3,205th time in his big-league career, and for the first time as a visiting player at Fenway Park.

The visitors clubhouse at Fenway Park is small. Not small in a Manhattan studio apartment kind of way, but compared to other big-league locker rooms, it can be downright claustrophobic.

Ellsbury reminds Sox what they're missing

BOSTON -- After all the pleasantries were out of the way, after he had delivered his obligatory -- and canned -- "it's great to be home" speech. After all the Boston writers had gone away satisfied that the prodigal son had not been beaten up too badly by the Fenway faithful in his return as a Yankee, it was time for a brief glimpse into the "real" Jacoby Ellsbury. Told that he had stuck a knife deep into the heart of his old fan base, not only in the top of the first inning when he narrowly missed hitting a leadoff home run to the deepest part of the ballpark, but also in the bottom of the...

Red Sox comment on Tanaka's command

Masahiro Tanaka did a fairly good job of beating the Red Sox down in Tuesday's 9-3 Yankees win at Fenway Park. Yet the compliments from the Boston players came almost begrudgingly. Perhaps they were bolstered by the fact that six starters got hits off the Bombers righthander.
