Letters to Cleo frontwoman and Dorchester native Kay Hanley was issued a challenge on Twitter on Saturday night after noting that Ryan Brasier's exhortation to Gary Sanchez to, "Get the (bleep) in the box," was her, "new favorite euphemism for everything." The challenge? Write a song about it...

Ryan Brasier was part of the problem in Friday's Game 1 because he didn't attack the Yankees and pitch with conviction. Neither was an issue in Saturday's Game 2. Just ask Gary Sanchez. The Yankees catcher may have been the star of New York's series-evening 6-2 victory with a pair of mammoth home...

Uh, are we supposed to survive 10 more games of this? On Friday night, the Red Sox won Game 1 of the American League Division Series with a 5-4 nail-biter over the Yankees that felt kinda like a loss by the time the middle relievers were done leaving their foul imprint on the game. Things got so...

The Craig Kimbrel conversation isn't an easy one. The Red Sox closer has certainly exhibited his value since coming over from San Diego prior to the 2016 season.

This is what it's come to. Red Sox fans losing sleep over Ryan Brasier's left foot. How did we get to this point, where the ailment of a guy who was dropped out of the Japanese minor leagues is viewed with so much importance? Well, Tuesday night should have clarified that reality.

Ryan Brasier was a guy. Just a guy. The presence of innocuous 30-somethings in spring training isn't out of the ordinary, particularly when it comes to road games. The teams need to bring extra pitchers just in case things get out of hand, with no guarantee they will see the mound, and usually,...
