They will play to the back of their baseball cards. It's one of the oldest and easiest crutches used throughout a Major League Baseball season. Through all the ups and downs, twists and turns of 162 games the temptation to jump ship with certain players or teams can always be tempered by recent...

The Red Sox will step into Fenway Park for the first time in the 2019 season 4 1/2 games in back of the Tampa Bay Rays and five games under .500. Who would have thought? This is Alex Cora's team's current lot in life, however, sitting at 3-8 heading into Tuesday's home opener. The Sox' run...

SEATTLE -- Well, this was no way for Chris Sale to celebrate his new contract. The Red Sox starter, who just signed a four-year, $145 million extension last week, turned in one of his worst outings since coming to Boston. The Sox' Opening Day hurler allowed seven runs on six hits, giving up three...
