Good baseball teams are expected to win their ace’s starts, especially when he fans 10 batters and utterly dominates the competition. But the Red Sox failed to support Chris Sale Monday, falling to the Rangers in extra innings. Boston is now 4-10 in Sale’s outings this season, and the left-hander...

This was Chris Sale's punctuation to his proclamation. He is still Chris Sale. The Red Sox starter threw his first complete game victory as a member of the Red Sox, needing 102 pitches to completely dominate the Royals on the way to his team's 8-0 win in Kansas City. There were just three hits,...

NEW YORK -- It was supposed to be one of the many perks of Chris Sale's existence. The lefty always beat the Yankees, particularly at Yankee Stadium. That narrative has officially been dented. For the second time this season Sale managed just a so-so outing at the home of the Yankees, this time...

It looked like the Red Sox entered another dimension in Friday’s 4-3 loss to the Astros. (For a complete recap, click here.) Less than a week after giving up three runs (two earned) to the Red Sox at Fenway, Wade Miley looked more like Chris Sale than Chris Sale did. The former Red Sox starter...

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...

For those Red Sox fans in attendance at Tuesday night's frigid Fenway Park affair, it seemed like an occasion that would have been worthy of saving that ticket stub. Then, out of nowhere, it became simply a game those same fans probably just wanted to forget. Few saw the end of the script playing...

BALTIMORE -- The concern over Chris Sale seems to be over. One start after turning in his best outing of the 2019 season Sale turned it up a notch. The lefty spun an absolute gem against the Orioles at Camden Yards, giving up one run on three hits over eight innings. He punctuated the performance...

It's silly to get wrapped up in one game or one win over the course of a baseball season. Thursday night the Red Sox blew their game against the White Sox thanks to a walk-off homer. Friday night they bounce back with a 6-1 win in Chicago. They could now win 10 in a row, or maybe a losing streak is...

Losses like Thursday night in Chicago will happen. You have a game seemingly in hand -- as was the case with the Red Sox visit to the White Sox' home -- and all of a sudden there's a key error, opposite-field single, a foul ball that just barely makes the stands and finally walk-off three-run homer...

Appearing on the Dale & Keefe Show Thursday afternoon Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski offered an update regarding Dustin Pedroia and his injured left knee. Dombrowski noted that Pedroia had been examined in New York earlier in the day and was on his way to St...
