David Price Faces Watershed Red Sox Moment Tonight

The results have been a pedestrian 9-7 record, with a 4.51 ERA. While he has struck...

Is Jackie Bradley Jr. the Red Sox’s MVP?

This Red Sox season can’t be definitively described as fun; it’s almost impossible for a 162-game campaign to ever be described as that. There have just been too many ups and downs for that. The lineup, however, is capital-F Fun. It’s an insanely deep unit that has seemingly had a different member step up each and every game. With this fact, I began wondering over the weekend...

Ranking the Red Sox roster from most pleasant surprise to most aggravating disappointment

COMMENTARY Steven Wright, the 31-year-old knuckleballer with seven career wins prior to this season, made the All-Star team and even had a case to be the American League’s starting pitcher. David Price, the $31-million salaried fireballer with five career All-Star appearances prior to this season, most certainly did not make the midsummer classic roster and has been the [...

Red Sox Notes: Boston’s Struggles In Close Games A Cause For Concern

BOSTON — The mark of any good baseball team is its ability to win all different types of games, from close contests to blowouts. The Red Sox have done just fine this season in the latter category.

Red Sox nearly had serious catcher emergency in loss to Tigers

BOSTON — When Sandy Leon crumpled to the ground Tuesday night after getting hit by a pitch in the sixth inning, Fenway Park gave a collective gasp. The concern over losing Leon wasn’t just because the Red Sox catcher surprisingly has been one of the team’s best hitters this season.

David Ortiz's odds of being American League MVP

This is an article about David Ortiz and the MVP. So, to confuse you, we’ll start with Josh Donaldson. On Wednesday he put on a power show to help the Blue Jays defeat the Diamondbacks, 10-4. This performance prompted Andrew Stoeten to tweet “MVP.” Which makes sense. We are talking about the reigning AL MVP going 2-for-4 with a double, homer, and walk. This prompted me to look...

If the San Diego Padres continue to sell off their major league talent as we approach the Aug. 1 trade deadline, starting pitcher Andrew Cashner could be the next to go.
