Since the designated hitter/outfielder returned from the All-Star break he has run into a bit of a downturn, managing three hits in 26 at-bats. It's been enough of a slump to raise...

It was fairly uncomfortable watching, Brandon Workman trying to get those final five outs in what would be a 5-4 Red Sox win over the Blue Jays. Forty-five pitches. One run on a hit and two walks. The go-ahead runner standing at first base when that final out was made. (For a complete recap, click...

On Wednesday morning, David Price took to Twitter to react to Dennis Eckerley's comments on their 2017 incident in a recent Boston Globe feature . Later on at Fenway Park, he addressed them again with the assembled media, but this time in more pointed fashion calling it "trash." Price also noted...

Chris Sale seems to be a broken man right now, if not physically then certainly mentally.

Well, it’s now nearing the end of July and they are double-digit games out of first place in the American League East and just can’t seem to...
