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.

The Red Sox will likely carry 11 pitchers in the World Series, manager Alex Cora said on Sunday. While the Red Sox could choose to carry an extra pitcher, they prefer the flexibility of a 14th position player, particularly since it lets them pinch hit for their catchers. “With us, it’s not about...

First things first: Chris Sale did not end up in the hospital because of an infected belly button ring. The Red Sox ace has mastered the art of deadpan delivery, so on Saturday it was understandable that some took him at face value when he said this: "I had irritation from a belly button ring, just...
