This was an important development for the Red Sox, and it only partly had to do with keeping pace in the Wild Card race. Chris Sale was the story in this 5-0 win over the Blue Jays. No doubt about it. (For a complete recap, click here.) The Red Sox lefty dominated a team that roughed him up two...

Andrew Cashner isn't going to be the Red Sox' savior. We were reminded of that Tuesday night. Don't get it wrong, despite the starter's uninspired debut with the Sox this was still a good move for Dave Dombrowski to make. You gave up two 17-year-olds for one of the hottest pitchers in the American...

A month ago the Red Sox don't win this game. But it isn't a month ago. It feels like nine months ago, and that has made all the difference in the world.

TORONTO -- Raise your hand if you saw this coming ... Didn't think so. Ryan Weber gives off the appearance of some sort of major league novice, offering the image of a contest winner or professional baseball-playing passerby.

TORONTO -- The long hours had drifted into the next day with Alex Cora and his players just wanting to get back to the hotel as fast as possible. It was hard to blame them.

TORONTO -- It really didn't seem a whole lot of emphasis was being put on Tuesday night's game in and around Rogers Centre. Most of the talk pregame was almost exclusively regarding the Victoria Day controversy, leading Jays general manager Ross Atkins to devote virtually an entire press conference...

Things couldn't have gone much better for the Red Sox on Victoria Day. Not only did the Sox celebrate the Canadian national holiday with a decisive 12-2 win over the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre Monday afternoon, but along the way they received a bucket full of key performances.
