"Normal." That's the point, it shouldn't just be "normal," as Rafael Devers said while walking out of the clubhouse early Wednesday morning. The feeling should be different. It's the World Series. It is what the Red Sox' third baseman has probably dreamed of for a good chunk of his 22 years on this...

Alex Cora’s skills are being wasted on baseball. There’s peace to be negotiated in the Middle East, if only someone could push the right buttons. There’s a billion-dollar MegaMillions jackpot just waiting to be won and then donated to charity. Don’t even get me started on Trump. The Red Sox manager...

Monday was already a pretty fun day for Drew Pomeranz. The Red Sox pitcher had resigned himself to the fact that his existence with the team was to throw on the side throughout the postseason, and pitch to his own hitters when called upon. That's exactly what Pomeranz did the day before the World...

Remember when Chris Sale was supposed to be the be-all, end-all. You don't have the ace doing ace-like things in the postseason you don't have a chance. Well, after their 8-4 win over the Dodgers in Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday night, that narrative has certainly taken an about-face. (For a...

Alex Cora has finally earned the attention of an honored guest at the World Series – his mom. Her name is Iris and she told her son she’d come over from Puerto Rico and watch him manage when he reached the World Series. “I got mad at her, honestly,” Cora said. “I was like, when I didn’t see her, I...

His secret exposed, Red Sox reliever Brandon Workman leans forward, ever so slightly, and furrows his brow. “Who said this, first off?” he asks conspiratorially, admitting nothing. Uhh, everyone, he’s told. Nathan Eovaldi. Heath Hembree. Craig Kimbrel. Joe Kelly. And Matt Barnes, definitely Matt...

There’s only one David Ortiz, but when it comes to the postseason, Justin Turner might be the next best thing. And to think they were nearly Red Sox teammates. It was only four years ago that Turner found himself free to sign anywhere after being dropped by the Mets. Then-Red Sox general manager...

Nathan Eovaldi has not yet spoken to the Red Sox about a contract extension, but he’s open to returning when he hits free agency next month. “I’d love to be back,” Eovaldi said on Monday. “But nothing’s popped up yet.” When Eovaldi arrived in Boston at the trade deadline for left-handed prospect...

Manny Machado is one of the best young players in baseball, but at the moment he's also its biggest villain.
