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. The common denominator: none of them are in the Red Sox starting rotation. But wins are for cavemen, right ? How about ERA? Does that...

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...

I have a blindspot for Manny Ramirez. In my eyes, his sweet right-handed swing and larger than life persona outweigh his multiple drug suspensions. I would rather remember Manny diving to cut off Johnny Damon’s throw in the outfield than shoving down an elderly traveling security who failed to...

Chris Sale first became a full-time Major League starting pitcher at the beginning of 2012. From that point through April 2018, he dominated the months of March and April every season (combined 33 starts), averaging almost seven innings an outing with a 2.67 ERA and 9.6 K/9. Fairly different from...

Perhaps most notable among the former Red Sox to make their return to Fenway Park for Tuesday’s World Series ring ceremony was Manny Ramirez. Although he expressed the team has invited him in the past, it’s not every day you see the 2004 World Series MVP back in Boston. In addition to playing a...

It’s been said quite a bit since the turn of the century, but it’s hard to believe just how many championships the city of Boston has celebrated since the Patriots won their first one. While the Pats set the standard professional sports teams across the country, never mind Boston, the fact the Red...
