If you think Chris Sale feels like the most dominant pitcher in the American League, apparently Astros manager A.J. Hinch agrees. Sale was named the American League starter in the All-Star Game for the third straight season on Monday, and for the second straight year, he'll be opposed by Washington...

The list of Red Sox needs prior to the trade deadline goes something like this: reliever, second baseman, reliever, reliever, reliever, backup catcher. But here's a useful item missing from that shopping cart: right-handed starter. The American League is essentially a three-team race between the...

Chris Sale isn’t doing David Price any favors. Every Sale outing is an electric affair, complete with ferocious fastballs and double-digit K's. It’s quite the contrast to Price, who’s sheepishly exited his last two starts after allowing five home runs and hitting three batters in one inning...

Chris Sale isn’t quite Pedro Martinez when it comes to pure dominance on the mound, but he’s pretty close. And on Wednesday, Sale was able to remove Martinez from the record books with one statistic. The game marked Sale’s 200th career start and before him Martinez held the MLB record for most...

My esteemed colleague John Tomase is disappointed we seem to be taking the Red Sox for granted. They have the best record in the Major Leagues and are on pace for a franchise-record 110 wins. But yet, the phone lines aren’t lit up with Red Sox fans waiting to extol Mookie Betts or salivate over J.D...

The number of the day for two of the most important players on the Red Sox was 100. The Red Sox beat the Royals, 10-5, on Friday night. Mookie Betts led off the game with his 100th career home run, and starter Chris Sale took it from there en route to career win No. 100. The symmetry was hard to...

NEW YORK — J.D. Martinez didn’t want to call it a wake-up call. But perhaps the Red Sox would agree that what transpired at Yankee Stadium over the past two days was at least somewhat of a reality check.

NEW YORK -- You want to talk about the right guy at the right time? Chris Sale is - and has been - it. The Red Sox needed to win in Yankee Stadium Saturday night, not only because the remnants of Friday night's one-sided loss were still lingering, but, let's be honest, these games really, really...
