The Red Sox dominated the Yankees in the standings last season, and then in the Division Series, which they won in four games. But anyone expecting 2019 to unfold in similarly satisfying fashion should think again. New York won 100 games last year, and as the two teams prepare to square off in...

Giancarlo Stanton took Steven Wright deep on Saturday. A Red Sox fan expressed his displeasure by throwing the ball back to the infield -- where it nailed Stanton as he rounded the bases. The windup and throw were almost as impressive as Stanton's 38th blast of the season. It reached the infield on...

Alex Rodriguez may still technically serve as a Yankees special assistant, but he's also an ESPN broadcaster and he's not letting his years in pinstripes cloud his objectivity. That's why, when the Globe's Nick Cafardo asked him to assess the relative talent level between the two rosters, Rodriguez...

J.D. Martinez and Giancarlo Stanton were the two new additions in the American League East this season and at least so far, it appears Martinez is winning. Martinez currently has 25 home runs to Stanton's 18, and the Red Sox slugger is crushing him in another category -- All-Star votes. With four...

Good things happen to those who wait. The Red Sox didn’t sign J.D. Martinez until late February, nearly two and a half months after the Yankees had acquired Giancarlo Stanton. So far, the Red Sox got the better slugger for potentially $133 million less. Martinez blasted another home run Thursday in...

NEW YORK -- It was exactly what Joe Kelly wanted . After brawling with Tyler Austin and the Yankees at Fenway Park in the last series between the two teams, Kelly has turned into one of the most hated men in all of New York. He heard it loud and clear Tuesday night when he entered the game with the...

BOOM! Went Giancarlo Stanton's first swing with the Yankees, an opposite-field home run in Toronto. BANG! Responded Chris Sale with two strikeouts to open his own season, 1,500 miles and two countries away. BOOM! Went Aaron Judge, Stanton and Gary Sanchez a few days later with homers in a win...

The Rays and Marlins will spend the season scurrying around the ocean floor in search of algae and the stray Cheeto. Beating those bottom dwellers simply checked the box marked, "Meh." Yay, Red Sox for taking care of business. Break out the Monty Python pennants, for there was much rejoicing. But...
