The Patriots play just 16 games a year, but we only occasionally remember the first one. The memories they make tend to kick in around November before concentrating in February. Celtics opening nights? The only two that spring to mind are beating Michael Jordan's Bulls in the first game of the Rick...

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- This most likely isn't any sort of American League East game-changer, but it certainly seems like a no-lose proposition for the Yankees. With ace Luis Severino (shoulder) out until May, New York has added some veteran depth, agreeing to terms on a minor-league deal with starter...

The season hasn't even started yet, and the Yankees are already losing ground to the Red Sox. On Tuesday, ace Luis Severino felt something grab in his shoulder while throwing a slider during warmups before a start against the Braves.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Barring unforeseen circumstances, Xander Bogaerts won't get nearly the payday Nolan Arenado just reeled in. The Rockies third baseman bypassed the chance to become a free agent this fall by signing an eight-year, $260 million deal. (The contract reportedly has an opt-out after...

The Red Sox dominated the Yankees in the standings last season, and then in the Division Series, which they won in four games. But anyone expecting 2019 to unfold in similarly satisfying fashion should think again. New York won 100 games last year, and as the two teams prepare to square off in...

The Yankees evidently aren't messing around. After an offseason in which they traded for starting pitcher James Paxton, and signed both shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and relievers Adam Ottavino and Zach Britton, New York is reportedly one of the teams which continue to make a run at free agent Manny...
