It looked like the Red Sox entered another dimension in Friday’s 4-3 loss to the Astros. (For a complete recap, click here.) Less than a week after giving up three runs (two earned) to the Red Sox at Fenway, Wade Miley looked more like Chris Sale than Chris Sale did. The former Red Sox starter...

There is no instruction manual for how a 27-year-old is to live life after signing a contract that will pay him $120 million. And don't think the uncertainty didn't cross Xander Bogaerts' mind. "I was curious how I might feel," Bogaerts told WEEI.com "I didn’t know." Fair enough. Bogaerts had...

The 2019 season continues to be a rough one for the Red Sox as a whole, but Xander Bogaerts has been a pretty consistent bright spot at the plate. More recently, in his last seven games, Bogaerts is rocking a .346 batting average with a home run and five RBIs. His effectiveness against lefties so...

As long as the Red Sox don’t keep up the miserable pace they’ve started the 2019 season with, they should be all set at shortstop through 2026. If the team somehow maintains this downward spiral through the 2022 season, they may run into a problem if Xander Bogaerts decides to opt-out. This seems...

As Xander Bogaerts left the clubhouse Thursday night he was asked if he witnessed the drone hovering over Fenway Park in the ninth inning of what would be a 7-6 Red Sox win over the Blue Jays. "Yeah, that was crazy," Bogaerts said. "That was one of ours?" Nope. In fact, nobody knew who the...

OAKLAND -- After the Red Sox' 1-0 loss to the A's, @Athletics changed its Twitter name to "Ramon Laureano's Arm." Well played. It was the arm belonging to A's outfielder Ramon Laureano after all that left Xander Bogaerts rubbing his face in disbelief well after being gunned down at third base in...

Xander Bogaerts’ six-year extension is great news for the Red Sox. Boston has locked up its star young shortstop through his prime and seemingly still possesses enough financial flexibility to retain Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez.

MLB’s instant replay process is so excruciatingly long, it’s difficult to defend even when the umpires get the calls right. So it’s a complete waste of time when the calls are still wrong after the interminable review. That was the case Monday in the Red Sox’ 7-0 loss to the A’s. The story of the...

OAKLAND -- When Alex Cora got the call in his Seattle hotel room Thursday night, it probably caught the Red Sox manager a bit off guard. Why not? That was certainly the case when his boss learned of the news that Xander Bogaerts had agreed to a six-year, $120 million contract extension. "I was not...
