Travis Lakins has just started introducing himself to Boston sports fans. His familiarity with Boston's chief basketball coach, however, dates back to seven years ago.

It's a dangerous game to proclaim all is lost on a night like this. This is exactly why Alex Cora answered the way he did when asked if the Red Sox might want to rethink his teams approach to ninth-inning relief pitching after its 7-5 loss/late night horror show Tuesday night. (For a complete recap...

Former Bruins forward Marc Savard saw his career cut short due to post-concussion syndrome, which of course was something he wasn't in control of. The same can be said for Dustin Pedroia and what he's going through now, as he just can't seem to stay on the field following suffering an injury to his...

Rafael Devers is an easy one. So is Michael Chavis. You knew those guys were becoming something of note for these Red Sox. That was hard to find and became even more difficult to downplay after the Red Sox' 12-5 win over the Indians Monday afternoon at Fenway Park. Devers came away with a key RBI...

Prior to Sunday's series finale against the Astros, left-hander Darwinzon Hernandez was recalled from Double-A Portland. The 22-year-old...

The first sign something was wrong came when pitching coach Dana LeVangie was seen on the phone to the Red Sox' bullpen just two batters into the game. David Price seemed fine, but clearly, there was a reason Alex Cora and LeVangie wanted to get Colten Brewer warming up. As it turned out the...

Everyone knew one year ago that Dustin Pedroia was slated to be called up to the Red Sox. What nobody realized was how they were going to fit the second baseman on the roster. In case you forgot, the end of the Hanley Ramirez era with the Red Sox was not something we saw coming. One year later it...
