Add David Price to the list of Red Sox who won't be going to the White House for the World Series champions' visit on May 9. MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports Price told him he would not be going , saying simply, "It's baseball season." World Series hero David Price told me he doesn’t plan to go to...

When I was 10 years old, I spent my Thanksgiving Day refreshing the AOL Red Sox message board for the latest news on Theo Epstein’s meal with the Schilling family. Fresh off the excitement of the Ryan Rupe acquisition, I was anxiously awaiting to see if the Sox would land one of the best big-game...

The 2019 season continues to be a rough one for the Red Sox as a whole, but Xander Bogaerts has been a pretty consistent bright spot at the plate. More recently, in his last seven games, Bogaerts is rocking a .346 batting average with a home run and five RBIs. His effectiveness against lefties so...

As long as the Red Sox don’t keep up the miserable pace they’ve started the 2019 season with, they should be all set at shortstop through 2026. If the team somehow maintains this downward spiral through the 2022 season, they may run into a problem if Xander Bogaerts decides to opt-out. This seems...

At one point, it looked like Blake Swihart had a lot to offer the Red Sox . Of course, there was the hope he could become the catcher of the future, having the offensive edge over Christian Vazquez. Clearly, that hasn’t panned out like Boston thought it would. There was another option, too. Swihart...

Oftentimes, it is the criticism from a family member that hits the hardest. The Red Sox’ brutal start to their title defense has opened them up to condemnation from all sides, but nobody’s words were more pungent than longtime color man Jerry Remy, who bluntly assessed the team’s dismal play...

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.) His fastball was humming all game. On pitch...

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...

Sean McDonough’s return to the Red Sox booth has been met with so much praise, even chief play-by-play critic Gerry Callahan is giving him kudos on a job well done. And it seems like the veteran broadcaster is enjoying his time back in Boston as much as the fans are enjoying listening to his dulcet...

Through the first 15 games of the 2019 season, Red Sox starting pitchers have only worked through the sixth inning four times. 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 ...
