    When Manny Ramirez finished his nine-minute media session on Oct. 18, 2007 in the Jacobs Field visitors' clubhouse, most who had listened in were left rolling their eyes and shaking their heads. It probably wasn't all that different from when Tuukka Rask finished his Zoom call Thursday night. "I’m...

    Mookie Betts offered a pretty powerful reminder Thursday. On what was perhaps the worst day of a terrible 2020 season for the Red Sox , the Dodgers' outfielder did what he had done five other times in a Boston uniform -- swat three home runs in a single game. Nobody in the history of baseball has...

    The Red Sox are stocking up on former first-rounders, claiming Christian Arroyo off waivers from the Indians. The 25-year-old infielder had been selected with the 25th overall selection of the 2013 MLB Draft by the Giants, making his major league debut as a 21-year-old in 2017. It is the fourth...

    The Red Sox have the second-worst record in baseball with a pitching staff that owns the fifth-highest ERA of all the teams. If there was one thing this team could use right now is some hope when it comes to finding high-end hurlers. It's why the image of Brusdar Graterol Wednesday night only added...

    Why not Kyle Hart? There probably aren't a lot of good retorts to that question, and that's why the 27-year-old will be making his major league debut Thursday against the Rays. Hart isn't considered one of the Red Sox' top pitching prospects, having seemingly fought an uphill battle after being...

    We've been here before. A year ago, in fact. Waking up on Aug. 12 with the feeling that the Red Sox' best-laid plans have gone completely out the window, leaving all who care about watching them focused on things they never thought they would be forced to focus on. In 2019, it was living life with...

    Here comes the postseason and look who has crept up the power rankings ... The Celtics may be just the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference, but they have opened enough eyes while going 4-2 in the bubble to change some of the national media's narrative. All of a sudden, Brad Stevens' team is being...

    First thing first. Manuel Margot represented a touching story Monday night. The Rays outfielder collected four hits in his Fenway Park debut. But it wasn't Margot's reunion with his old organization that highlighted the evening. The performance came just days after his father, Emmanuel, passed away...
