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...

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...

As far as the Red Sox starting staff goes, this qualifies as progress: David Price mostly surrendered solo homers. Don't misunderstand -- Price eventually allowed a two-run blast that basically clinched Oakland's 7-0 victory. But at least he gave the Red Sox a chance. He still couldn't stop them...

David Price had received quite a bit of flak throughout his career -- and especially in Boston -- because of his postseason struggles. He brushed a lot of the haters off his shoulders with an epic stretch to close out last year's ALCS and World Series, though. At Wednesday night's WEEI Red Sox...

When it comes to the Red Sox' offseason approach, this year was a little different. The bullpen became the area of concern all winter and spring, but Dave Dombrowski did little to address it. Steve Lyons, Marc James, and Evan Drellich discussed this at the WEEI Red Sox Roundtable at Lord Hobo...

Nothing illustrates the size of your staff (stop snickering) quite like the special section. Blessed with an abundance of bodies? That sucker might be 64 pages and chock-a-block full of giant ads. Struggling to make ends meet? Try eight pages and a few lonely house ads. Then there's WEEI.com. We...

If you were betting on the season-opening Red Sox rotation, you probably wouldn't have settled on this permutation. Manager Alex Cora told reporters in Arizona on Tuesday that Chris Sale will get Thursday's opening day start in Seattle, which we already knew. The rest of the rotation shook out in...

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- David Price didn't start doing these crossword puzzles until about three years ago. Back then it was simply a piece of paper and whatever pen was handy. The process has evolved. First came a dedicated clipboard for the sessions in front of his locker, then a string attached to...

Red Sox pitchers can say they love their fans, but their opposition to the pitch clock shows their words are nothing more than lip service. It is selfish behavior to expect people to wait 25.2 seconds between pitches, which is the average time it took Red Sox pitchers to throw the ball last season...

One of the biggest Red Sox storylines going into the 2018 postseason was the concern about David Price, and for good reason. Expectations should be high for a pitcher making $217 million over the course of his current deal with the Red Sox, but the veteran pitcher's postseason numbers before the...
