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...

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...

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...

It’s been a while since we could take pleasure in some Yankees’ schadenfreude. The Bronx Bombers went a couple of years without making big acquisitions, due largely to their desire to get under MLB’s luxury tax threshold.
