Rob Kardashian I Almost Got Beat Up In Boston ... Over My Yankees Hat

4/19/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The rivalry is still VERY real when it comes to the Sox and the Yankees ... just ask Rob Kardashian who tells TMZ Sports he almost got his ass kicked in Beantown for rockin' his Yanks hat.

Rob says he's still a Dodgers fan at heart -- after all, he was born and raised in L.A. -- but says his lady Blac Chyna got sick of the L.A. lid and pressured him to switch it up. 

So, Rob chose the pinstripes ... but forgot how much the Yanks are hated in Red Sox country -- and says his fashion choice almost got him beat the hell up.  

Hey, it's rough out there.

EXCLUSIVE

0128_yoan_moncada_car_launch_2Yoan Moncada isn't in the big leagues yet ... but he just spent $45k to make sure his swag is MAJOR ... turning his i8 BMW into a bona fide cool machine that freaking GLOWS IN THE DARK.

Moncada -- who signed a $31 million deal with the Red Sox last year -- wanted to roll to spring training in style ... so he took his ride down to customizing expert Alex Vega at The Auto Firm in Miami.

What did Alex and his Auto-Jedis do to the ride?

Vega tells us they took it apart "to the bone" and replaced the interior with custom Avorza leather, added Av30 forge wheels and repainted the car satin black with a glow in the dark metallic red.

Final price tag ... $45k.

Veteran move by the kid ... we all know the thots come out at night.

9/4/2015 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0903-david-ortiz-tom-brady-GETTY-INSTAGRAM-01Tom Brady has some big support coming his way after beating Roger Goodell and the NFL in court on Thursday ... but David Ortiz may be the biggest supporter of them all.

As our friends at BSO pointed out ... Papi posted a tweet after hearing the news of Brady's 4-game suspension being lifted ... showing some Boston love after the New England QB was set free.

Shouldn't be surprised by the support ... both Beantown sports legends are no strangers to championships and controversy ... so they definitely have stuff to bond over.

Stacey Dash to ESPN End Schilling's Suspension ... He Was Right!

8/27/2015 3:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827-Stacy-Dash-Curt-Schilling-MAIN-GETTY-TMZ-01"Clueless" star Stacey Dash says Curt Schilling has the truth on his side, and ESPN was way outta line when it benched him for his controversial Muslim/Nazi tweet.

H/T BSO for pointing out Dash jumping to Schilling's defense. She tweeted that the worldwide leader actually owes the ex Red Sox ace an apology. As Dash put it ... "So, now we can't tweet things that are true?"

You'll recall Schilling posted a meme comparing today's radical Muslims to Nazis in the 1940s. ESPN immediately pulled him from its Little League World Series coverage.

Schilling hasn't had this kinda rotation support since Randy Johnson.

6/19/2015 12:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Boston Red Sox star Pablo Sandoval broke the CARDINAL RULE when it comes to dropping a deuce during a MLB game ... so claims David Price who says Pablo needs to be smarter on the crapper. 

As you've probably heard ... Sandoval was benched by the team after he got caught liking sexy photos on Instagram while the Sox were playing the Braves earlier this week. 

Pablo later said he was using his phone while taking care of biz in the clubhouse bathroom ... and "f**ked up" by violating the team's no social media during games policy.  

Which brings us to Price -- a 4-time All Star and Cy Young winner -- who tells us EVERYONE in the MLB uses their phones when nature calls, but ya GOTTA be able to show restraint and not leave a digital trail.  

Check out the clip ... Price is hilarious ... and also dishes out some hygienic advice for all of you non-professional athletes who also enjoy a good B.M.

Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo Drops $85k ... To Pimp Out $84k Porsche

1/25/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo only came over from Cuba a few months ago, but he's already BALLIN' OUT like an American ... dropping $85,000 to trick out his $84,000 Porsche!!!

Castillo took his 2014 Avorza Porsche 911 Turbo to Alex Vega and the guys at the Auto Firm in Miami with the following marching orders -- MAKE IT AWESOME!

So what do you get for all that money? Vega says he and his crew took the entire car apart piece by piece to paint it "Snow White" ... then added detailing in red and black, Castillo's favorite colors.

Vega gutted the interior as well to put in red and black leather seats. Watch the video though for the highlight ... a custom grill with Castillo's #38 in lights. There's even a #38 light that shines on the road when he opens the doors.

Castillo signed with the Sox last year for $72.5 million ... so he's not struggling to make payments.

Red Sox Owner I'M NOT MAD AT JOHNNY DAMON ... 'Nothing But Respect'

1/13/2015 12:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
0113_John-Henry_johnny_damon_getty_2Boston Red Sox owner John Henry tells TMZ Sports ... he's got NO GRUDGE against Johnny Damon for leaving the team for the Yanks back in 2005 ... despite Johnny suggesting there was lingering beef between the two. 

As we previously reported, Damon told Donald Trump he didn't hit up Henry for a donation during a fundraising task on this week's "Celebrity Apprentice" because they weren't exactly on speaking terms after the whole contract situation from '05. 

But Henry tells us he has absolutely NO ill will toward Damon -- saying, "I have nothing but respect personally for Johnny."

Henry continued, "He accomplished a great deal in Boston and will always be welcome at Fenway."

So, seems Trump was right ... maybe Johnny shoulda hit Henry up for a donation after all.

Johnny Damon I'm Not On Speaking Terms with Red Sox Owner

1/13/2015 7:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's been nearly a decade since the break-up, but it seems like still some bad blood between Johnny Damon and Boston Red Sox owner John Henry ... with Johnny saying they're still not on speaking terms. 

Damon shed some light on the situation on last night's "Celebrity Apprentice" -- when Donald Trump asked why Damon didn't try to ask Henry for money during a fundraising competition. 

Long story short ... Damon says he's not sure they still "love" him out in Beantown and says he hasn't spoken with Henry in a while. 

Then there was this exchange ... 

Trump: "I think you'd be able to call John Henry. He'd give you whatever you want."
Damon: "He did not do that back in 2005. So ..." 

Sad.

And here it is ... yet another tribute to #2 ... courtesy of Red Sox superfan Ben Affleck.

Ben was out at a "Project Greenlight" event on Sunset last night when we asked if he's GLAD the NY Yankees superstar finally called it quits this season.

And that's when Ben got mushy -- "I like Derek Jeter a lot. I have a lot of respect for Derek Jeter."

He added, "It's nice that we're not playing against him."

If Ben really wants to honor the guy ... he can buy Derek's game-used dirt for just under $400. Seriously.

The wife of Boston Red Sox star Clay Buchholz says she's the latest victim in the nude photo hacking scandal -- and tells TMZ Sports the racy photos were ONLY meant to be seen by her husband. 

We spoke with Lindsay Clubine -- a former "Deal or No Deal" briefcase model -- who tells us she was devastated when she found out someone had hacked into her husband's phone. 

"This is a terrible crime," Clubine said ... "I have my attorneys removing the pictures. This is very upsetting to my family and I."

Clubine says she doesn't blame her husband at all for keeping the pics on his phone ... saying, "Clay and I are good. I send him pictures on the road."

However, Clubine says she IS upset that she's been wrongly identified in some of the more hardcore pics that were hacked from her husband's phone. 

"There are pics on his phone that [a teammate] sent some of the guys that are NOT me."

When asked if she would be following Gabrielle Union's lead and contacting the FBI -- Clubine said, "We're taking all the necessary measures."

Pitchers are gonna think twice before throwing inside on Shane Victorino next season ... 'cause TMZ Sports has learned, the Red Sox star is on a HARDCORE mixed martial arts training binge.

"The Flyin' Hawaiin" is getting into fighting shape with "UFC Fit" -- same MMA workout routine that helped UFC super stars like Johnny Hendricks and Thiago Alves get JACKED before fights.

Shane tells us, "As an athlete, I’ve taken part in a lot of training programs ... and UFC Fit takes things to a whole new level.”

Don Gold -- one of the honchos at the program -- tells us women's UFC star Ronda Rousey uses the system too ... "Mike Dolce and the UFC Fit team just recently trained Ronda for her UFC title defense and got her in the absolute best shape of her career."

Bottom line ... watch out for Shane when the benches clear next year.
