Chris Sale found a new way to torture Red Sox fans in Tuesday’s 8-0 loss. Not only was his line subpar — four runs on seven hits over five innings — but also he managed to give Boston a glimmer of hope in the process. (For a complete recap, click here.)

Baseball’s pace of play issues have been perfectly encapsulated in a 38-second video that features two Red Sox pitchers throwing the ball in playoff games 40 years apart. Young sports journalist Tucker Boynton, who is slated to graduate from Harvard University in 2022, created a video that...

It took 14 games for one to record an out in the seventh inning (Eduardo Rodriguez vs. Baltimore on Friday). Opponents are mashing the starting rotation to the tune of a ...

The Red Sox are 13 games into the 2019 season and the only pitchers with wins are Brian Johnson, Matt Barnes and Marcus Walden, who earned his second win Thursday.

Ken Giles wanted no part of Mitch Moreland in the ninth inning. Boston’s No. 3 hitter had already tagged a home run into the Red Sox bullpen in the seventh, and with Mookie Betts on third, Giles was doing everything he could to keep the reigning MVP from getting a big lead. By focusing on Betts,...

One of the prevailing mysteries in the gossipy world of Boston sports media is what happened with Jorge Andres at NBC Sports Boston. The veteran anchor, who worked at ESPN for four years prior to his hiring, left the regional network before he even hit the air. Further complicating matters, NBC...

In a season that has continued to be underwhelming for the Red Sox , Mitch Moreland has managed to shine. Most recently, he has hit home runs in his past two games, and three in his last four. On Sunday, his solo home run was the deciding factor in a 1-0 win over the Diamondbacks. Without Moreland’...

It took a few games, but Triston Casas finally has his first home run as a professional baseball player, launching the Greenville Drive’s first of 2019 in Wednesday night’s 9-8 win. The Red Sox 2018 first round pick drilled the solo shot 418 feet as part of the Drive’s late surge in the comeback...
