Want the good news? Nathan Eovaldi gave up just one run over five innings. And Mookie Betts kept looking like 2018 Mookie Betts, claiming another homer to go along with a double. Then there was everything else. Before the game, it was the news that David Price has had a setback with his left wrist...

Josh Taylor summed it up after Day 1 of this new world order involving.the Red Sox bullpen. "More people to talk to," he said. "Less places to sit." True enough. The Red Sox are living life with 17 relief pitchers, carrying a total of 21 pitchers overall on what is a 36-man active roster. It is not...

This was the plan that worked so well in 2018 and has finally seemingly kicked in for 2019. Mookie Betts, leadoff hitter, jumping all over the first good pitch he sees. Two pitches. Two home runs. This time that's exactly what happened during the Red Sox' 6-2 win over the Twins Wednesday night with...

Brian Johnson and Josh Taylor may have made history Tuesday. If nothing else, it was certainly the rarest of rare Fenway Park moments: two left-handed pitchers were warming up in the home bullpen at the same time. Why such an occurrence might seem commonplace, it is anything but. For that, you can...

The Red Sox figure to have at least one opening in their starting rotation for 2020. Let's leave Darwinzon Hernandez out of that conversation. You watch Hernandez pitch, see the results and immediately thoughts of why might be if he did that over six or seven innings every fifth day come to mind...

It was somewhat of a mirage, that moment on the back fields at JetBlue Park. Tanner Houck, the Red Sox' first-round pick in 2017, gets his big chance during a spring-training workout, squaring off with both Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez. The results were eye-opening, with the then-21-year-old...

The Red Sox may be on the verge of signing a pitcher who served as a major league team's Opening Day starter this season. Before anyone gets too excited the pitcher in question is Jhoulys Chacin, who was just recently released by Milwaukee -- a team also in need of pitching -- after a horrific 2019...

You know the deal. The Red Sox are 5 1/2 games out of the final Wild Card spot with 27 games to play. They are red-hot, having now won five of the first six games on this road trip after a 7-6, 15-inning victory over the Angels Friday night. It is a team that is doing a really good job of clinging...
