Maybe we have to readjust our thinking. The mantra for this Red Sox team dating back to the first day of spring training was that its foundation was going to be those five starting pitchers. David Price, Chris Sale, Eduardo Rodriguez, Rick Porcello and Nathan Eovaldi. So when uneven performances...

We've said it a few times over the last few days: This latest dust-up involving David Price and Dennis Eckersley had a short shelf-life. That is a no-brainer. The other piece of the puzzle when it comes to Price, figuring out on-field performance? After Friday night, the Red Sox better hope that...

It's been a few weeks now since Dustin Pedroia decided to step away from the Red Sox in order to reflect on his knee injury. That has also been the exact same amount of time Brock Holt has been wearing a particular wristband. Holt has made sure that while Pedroia is gone he isn't forgotten. The...

Normally when a player goes through the kind of slump the outfielder has endured there is a lot of talk of sticking to the process. Even with his well-publicized swing evolution, Bradley Jr. would have none...

Even though it was just Game 17 of the season, boos were heard in the late innings at Fenway Park, and deservedly so. The Red Sox fell to the Orioles, 8-1, on Patriots Day and also the final game of the first homestand of the season. The team went 3-3, but it should have been way better than that...

One of the changes in the Red Sox' home clubhouse is where the manager's office resides. It used to be the room all visitors would immediately see upon entering the team's dressing room, with the skipper getting an immediate glance at any and all visitors.

Whatever issues plagued the Red Sox offense during a slow stretch between August and September, it's nothing the Orioles can't fix.
