John Henry heard the dismissals of his team after the Red Sox split the first two games of the American League Division Series, and he didn't like the negativity, not one bit. Then again, he didn't consider anything new, either. "I don't know. It felt like the media thought when it was 1-1 that we...

Amidst the euphoria of New York, New York, and Chris Sale saving the day, and champagne popping in the Red Sox clubhouse was this downer -- what the hell happened to Craig Kimbrel? The All-Star closer, who periodically battled command issues throughout the season, nearly let Tuesday's ALDS-...

The Yankees won 100 games and in almost any other year would've coasted to homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. But not this year. This year belongs to the Red Sox. Boston didn't win 108 games to lose in the Division Series, and it definitely didn't win 108 and the American League East to...

Rick Porcello's career is defined by its contrasts. He's a Cy Young Award winner who has never won a playoff game. He has led the league in victories one season and losses the next. He's won at least 10 games nine times, but posted sub-4.00 ERAs just three times. He one-hit the Yankees this summer...
