Felix Doubront and Jarrod Saltalamacchia experienced one of those strange moments during the Red Sox 10-3 win in Chicago on Thursday night.
Doubront, seemingly pleased with a solid six inning performance, decided to express his appreciation for the way his catcher called the game by offering up a nice, big "man hug." Saltalamacchia looked completely unwilling by the thought at first, but eventually caved and the two shared a special moment that will likely live in Red Sox history — for better or worse.
Doubront and Salty aren't alone, though, as there have been some other awkward moments in local sports as of late.
Pedro Martinez and Kevin Millar served one up just last week, making a seemingly simple toast during the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park look far too uncomfortable — and even acknowledging it as such.
Then, of course, there was Drew Bledsoe's strange kissing of Robert Kraft's cheeks after the Patriots AFC Championship win in January. An act that was about as entertaining as it was uncomfortable.
While there's definitely been plenty more awkward moments around the sports world, we want to know which one of these New England sports moments was the most awkward?
