It’s spring and our two winter sports teams are locked into tight and competitive second-round playoff battles. The NFL Draft just passed and the Patriots scored well and the Red Sox are showing signs of coming off life support. With all that and the start of Tee-ball for my kiddos, there’s simply...

Marcus Walden's existence with the Red Sox is becoming tough to ignore. The Red Sox pitcher has become one of his team's most relied-upon relievers this season, as was evident in Wednesday afternoon's win. Three innings. Just one baserunner. More dominance. The story of Walden has been surfaced...

Alex Cora has been very careful not to suggest these games have signaled the Red Sox' permanent turnaround. Smart move. The Red Sox are heading to Chicago with their second series sweep of the season, taking all three games against the A's at Fenway Park. The latest win was a 7-3 victory, which...

There is something missing from the Red Sox' home clubhouse this season that smacked visitors in the face upon entering last season. No more Fortnite. The popular video game became part of the conversation during last year's World Series run first because of David Price's carpal tunnel injury --...

Dustin Pedroia will be back in action Thursday, but just not with the Red Sox . Instead, he'll be with the Portland Sea Dogs (Double-A) as he begins a rehab assignment following feeling a "pop"in his surgically repaired left knee against the Yankees on April 17.

The Red Sox and Alex Cora are continuing their theme of keeping players fresh with built in days off, as Wednesday it is Xander Bogaerts. Bogaerts will get a planned day off in the series finale against the Athletics with the Red Sox going for a three-game sweep. Tzu-Wei Lin will start at shortstop...

Things have changed quite a bit since 1998. Just ask Alex Cora, or his rookie infielder Michael Chavis. Prior to the Red Sox' game against the A's the Red Sox manager reflected on just how differently first-year players are treated from when Cora broke into the big leagues 21 years ago. "You have...

With each passing day, Will Middlebrooks' name is resurfaced in the Red Sox media notes. After Monday night's game, this was the nugget: "The last Red Sox hitters with eight or more RBI in their first nine career games were Will Middlebrooks in 2012 (11) and Morgan Burkhart in 2000 (11)." For this...

Alex Cora wasn't about to overreact, and he shouldn't have. The Red Sox won Monday night thanks in large part to a six-run third inning. In the big picture, it was a step the right direction, little more. "It’s just one game, you know," Cora said after the 9-4 win over the A's at Fenway Park. "I’m...

I would say this is starting to feel a whole lot like 2014 but it's not. At this time that year, there was probably a bit less panic considering the Red Sox were two games under .500 and three games out of first place. This time around they are sitting at 11-17 while residing 7 1/2 games back of...
