Triple-A Pawtucket had its first home game of the 2019 season on Thursday. Why’s that worth noting?

Chris Sale has not looked right through his three starts this season. The left-hander has made it into the fifth inning just once and is 0-3 with a 9.00 ERA. Sale's velocity has also been down, but part of that is because he was sick going into his second start in Oakland. Appearing on Ordway,...

Things are not off to a great start for the Red Sox this season, as they are 3-9 and do not look even close to the same team as last year when they won the World Series despite having virtually the same roster. But, appearing on Ordway, Merloni & Fauria on Thursday, manager Alex Cora didn't...
