On the day Bartolo Colon made his big league debut in 1997, Rafael Devers wasn't quite six months old. When Colon made his first All-Star team, Devers had just learned to walk. When Colon won the AL Cy Young Award in 2005, Devers was not yet 10. And so it went that the oldest player in the leagues...

TORONTO -- Through 24 games, Alex Cora has a whole lot more hits than misses. When you've managed a team that has won all but one series through a month of the season, that's pretty obvious.

TORONTO -- It would have been easy for J.D. Martinez to say he's never played with anybody like Mookie Betts. Not many have. Betts is among the most electric talents in Major League Baseball, serving as perhaps the best offensive-defensive combination in the game today. It's not hyperbole. It's...

Even though it was April 15, it felt like December 15 at Fenway Park on Sunday afternoon, and the miserable conditions certainly impacted the action on the field. At 34 degrees, it was the lowest game-time temperature at Fenway Park since April 17, 2003. It was so cold the Red Sox even offered free...

Chris Sale has never hit a home run as a member of the Red Sox. But he absolutely knew what J.D. Martinez felt like when the designated hitter notched his first in his new home, Fenway Park. "It's got to be satisfying. It's just as fun as any of the other ones, but I'm sure for him there's a...
