"Extremely difficult to have any faith in the process that's being used... We felt it was clear that the replay was inconclusive. Any angle that we looked at, you couldn't tell if the foot was on the bag behind Mike Napoli's leg." -- John Farrell said of the MLB replay system that burned him twice over the weekend

Red Sox Give It the Old College Try With $9 Student Tickets... And Toga Night at Fenway

You may want to sign up to take that college course if you want a cheap entry to Fenway Park this season. And grab a sheet and make a toga while you're at it.

The Red Sox today introduced a $9.00 standing room ticket for high school and college students for home games at Fenway Park during the 2014 season.

In addition to offering $9.00 standing room tickets to high school and college students for every home game this season, the Red Sox will offer all students the opportunity to purchase $20.00 seats for six specially-themed Super Student Nights in April and May.

Theme nights include Student Toga Night on April 8, Student Scavenger Hunt Night on April 20, Night of Champions on April 29 (celebrating the three World Series Championships), Greek Night on May 1, College Media Night (for communications/journalism students) on May 18, and Class of 2014 Night on May 24.

Gomes to Skip Trip to White House

Red Sox Outfielder Jonny Gomes Is Upset He Stayed on Bench in Opener; Will Skip Team Trip to White House Today

Who Bought the Suits Will Stay In Baltimore

April 1, 2014: BDD has learned that Turnaround King Jonny Gomes has decided to stay in Baltimore this morning as the team bus prepares for a trip to the White House. Gomes said this was not in protest of any government policy or activity, i.e. former Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas, but it is a protest of the fact that Red Sox manager John Farrell elected to keep Gomes on the bench in Boston's 2-1 Opening Day loss to the Orioles.

Gomes could have pinch-hit for new Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski in the eighth inning, or again, batted for the struggling Jackie Bradley Jr. in the ninth inning. But Farrell chose to let the man with a World Series tattoo rot on the bench.

Gomes indicated that he may hit the Baltimore aquarium today in lieu of the White House trip, but stopped short of saying he was going to head back to Boston and hope for a better fate in the home opener on Friday at Fenway. And while you are digesting this story, don't forget to look back at Sox news on this date in 2013, 2012, 2011, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, and 2004.

“With this agreement, we have near certainty that David Ortiz will finish his career in a Red Sox uniform, which is something we have all wanted and that we are all proud of. It is difficult to describe David’s contributions to our city both on the field and off the field, and we are so proud to have this ambassador of our game with us as he continues on this road to Cooperstown.” -- Red Sox owner John Henry said in a statement released by the team
