In the roughly 24 hours since Bill Buckner’s passing, sports columnists and pundits have told us his career should not be defined by one play, before talking almost exclusively about that one play. So we will not do that in this space. Instead, we will talk about perhaps Buckner’s most impressive...

We may finally have an explanation for Chris Sale’s lousy April. The ace left-hander, who’s struck out at least 10 batters over his last four starts, started the season with a greatly diminished fastball and inability to put hitters away. It was theorized Sale was possibly still dealing with the...

Dustin Pedroia’s interminable rehab stint is restarting. The Red Sox mainstay will play this weekend in Triple-A Pawtucket and be in the lineup Friday, where he is batting third and playing second base.

When J.D. Martinez gets hot, look out. Over his last three games, the Red Sox slugger is 6-for-13 with four home runs, seven RBIs and five runs scored.
