This isn't just about the last seven games. Make no mistake about it, those have been impressive. During this recent road trip through Toronto and Houston Rafael Devers provided the kind of shock and awe this Red Sox team desperately needed, going 13-for-27 (.481) with a 1.500 OPS and four home...

The Twitter poll was, to be kind, polarizing. Plenty of people were offended that such a question would be even asked. But there it was, 9,949 votes later ... Would you trade Rafael Devers for Vlad Guerrero Jr. right now? — Rob Bradford (@bradfo) May 23, 2019 The idea that Rafael Devers come away...

Rafael Devers joined an exclusive club Wednesday night, becoming just the sixth slugger age 22 or younger to hit a home run in three straight games for the Red Sox . The rest of the list looks like this: Ted Williams, Babe Ruth, Carl Yastrzemski, Rico Petrocelli, and Jim Tabor. In the Red Sox' four...

TORONTO -- The long hours had drifted into the next day with Alex Cora and his players just wanting to get back to the hotel as fast as possible. It was hard to blame them. Not only were the Red Sox staring at another tilt with the Blue Jays 12 hours down the road, but there was the task of using...

Rick Porcello’s outing against the Mariners didn’t start on the right foot, but he flipped a switch after giving Seattle a four-run head start in the first inning. From the second inning until the seventh, when he was pulled with two outs, Porcello didn’t surrender another hit, throwing 5 2/3...

It's silly to get wrapped up in one game or one win over the course of a baseball season. Thursday night the Red Sox blew their game against the White Sox thanks to a walk-off homer. Friday night they bounce back with a 6-1 win in Chicago. They could now win 10 in a row, or maybe a losing streak is...

Ken Giles wanted no part of Mitch Moreland in the ninth inning. Boston’s No. 3 hitter had already tagged a home run into the Red Sox bullpen in the seventh, and with Mookie Betts on third, Giles was doing everything he could to keep the reigning MVP from getting a big lead. By focusing on Betts,...

The Red Sox just keep finding new ways to come up winners. Their lastest success? The lottery. A great-grandfather from Templeton, Mass. won $100,000 in the Mass Cash game on Monday by playing five jersey numbers belonging to Red Sox players. Jim Aylward Jr. (should we call him JAJ?) hit it big...

A night after scoring two runs in Game 1 of the ALCS against the Astros, Alex Cora is changing things up a bit. Rafael Devers will get the start at third base over Eduardo Nunez, Ian Kinsler will start at second base over Brock Holt and Christian Vazquez will start behind the plate over Sandy Leon...
