10/19/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There will be NO EIGHTH CHILD for Johnny Damon ... 'cause the ex-MLB star says he just got snipped for the second time ... after his first vasectomy didn't quite hold up.

The former Red Sox stud was at the Mohegan Sun 20th Anniversary party with his wife, Michelle -- when they were asked if they were planning to add another Damon to the already massive family!

That's when Johnny revealed that he already tried to put a stop to his procreating with a vasectomy a few years ago -- but it didn't work ... and Michelle got pregnant with his 7th kid!

Damon says he had to go back and have a doctor rework his man plumbing -- "Hopefully, this one worked."

FYI, Damon's kind of an anomaly -- 'cause less than 1 PERCENT of vasectomies fail the first time ... according to


Alex Rodriguez 'I Love Big Papi' But I Won't Say I'm Rooting for Him

10/7/2016 6:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Alex Rodriguez says he's definitely a fan of David Ortiz -- but when it comes to rooting for the MLB legend in his last playoff run ... A-Rod stopped short of saying he was rooting for him.

It all went down outside of Craig's in West Hollywood -- Alex was in a good mood and had nothing but love for Big Papi ... but scoffed at the idea of rooting for the Red Sox. 

FYI, the Sox lost Game 1 Thursday night ... but the Yankees didn't make the playoffs.

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

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.

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.

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. 


MLB Star David Price Pablo Sandoval Screwed Up ... Poop Smarter, Homie

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

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

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
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 ..."

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.
