It's a good weekend for anyone who believes that modern pitchers are babied. Before they got smoked by a 7-0 count against the Red Sox on Friday, the Blue Jays reeled off 11 wins in 12 games, bringing them to a pivotal "now or never" moment in the season. They have clawed from 10 games out in the...

I'm going to leave this up for a bit ... I will be doing a mailbag , for which the answers will be posted Wednesday. We have to start the questioning off somewhere, so this is as good a place as any. Email whatever questions you have (baseball, shoe size, site related, anything) to rbradford@weei...

A fire alarm is currently annoying everyone at Fenway: the typical beeping, flashing lights, etc. No one in the crowd seems bothered by the alarm. There is something metaphorically apt about the development. For the first time that I can remember since I started covering the Red Sox , this has...

OK, Fantasyland Man has gone for the bread basket and brought to light that I actually found "Boat Trip" entertaining. I couldn't help it, the combination of Cuba Gooding's over-acting, Horacio Sanz mastery of making every scene look like he's eyeing a box of Munchkins, and the former Mrs. Chris...

Regardless of who emerges with the American League East crown, both the Red Sox and Rays seem destined to reach the playoffs. No one will be able to say that those teams took an easy path to get there. The fact that the Yankees awake today to find themselves in fourth place in the division--despite...

Our man from Fantasyland and I are going to execute this symbiotic back and forth with five questions that need to be answered every morning, followed hours later with five answers to those queries. So, more than half a day after our man Kirk threw these out, I will give them by best retort. Here...

After David Ortiz ended his run of 19 games without a homer on Sunday, he suggested that his left wrist continues to bother him. "My wrist is not OK," he told reporters. Such words seemed to raise a red flag. It became easy to imagine that the same injury that sent him to the disabled list for...

One 415-foot blast later, my previous post  appears slightly ill-timed... Ortiz edges ahead of Pedroia, 18 homers to 17.

It seems an odd time to think about anything that might be amiss with the Red Sox lineup. The team is pounding out runs by the bushel, having averaged just over seven runs a game in its last 22 contests. More than at any other time of the year, the team is getting contributions from every part of...

This is why I would rather have Dustin Pedroia right now than Alex Rodriguez ... "Insanity Grips Bradford Files" is being printed up in 100-point type on some intraweb concoction right now, I'm sure. But, as we sit here, I believe the player you want down the stretch is Pedroia, not the highest-...
