Price Can't Close The Deal, Red Sox Lose, 6-4 In Bronx

(AP Photo)David Price and the Red Sox had a shot at clinching the American League East title last night. They both failed. Price in particular continued his horrific season against The Evil Ones—coughing up all six earned runs on three HRs. Boston had scratched back to tie the game at four in the seventh, only to have the lefty give the lead right back to New York in the bottom...

Five Years Later, the Red Sox Ride Again

It probably won’t be talked about anywhere, nor will it be trumpeted by pundits, but September 28th marks a pretty pivotal event in Red Sox history: it’s the anniversary of the greatest collapse ever by a Red Sox team. The night everything changed. The Red Sox were playing the Orioles. Jonathan Papelbon, the man who has devolved from making history coming out of a bullpen...

David Ortiz’s Place Among All-Time Red Sox Greats

As I write this, there are six regular season games left in David Ortiz’s career. He’s been a Red Sox since 2003, and if he plays in all six remaining games, he’ll finish with 2,408 games played for the franchise. He’s been a part of three World Series-winning teams, a number we hope he’s not done adding to quite yet. He has meant a lot to both the franchise and the city...

Red Sox, Ortiz look to make amends

NEW YORK -- The next time David Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox conduct postgame interviews, they hope their comments take place in a raucous clubhouse during a boisterous celebration for clinching the American League East. The Red Sox did not clinch Tuesday as Ortiz was 0-for-5 with two strikeouts and stranded seven runners during a 6-4 loss. Their next opportunity will be Wednesday...

After losing ball in lights, Betts turns 9-3 DP

The Red Sox were so close they could taste it. Somewhere in the visiting clubhouse there were bottles of champagne waiting to be popped. And for a moment, it seemed like Mookie Betts' defensive heroics could've changed the outcome of the Red Sox's 6-4 loss to the Yankees on Tuesday.

Red Sox Clinch Party Officially Moved to Wednesday

(AP Photo/Kathy Willens) Remember when Pedro Martinez would face the Yankees back in the day? Guy brought his “A” game every time he stepped to the mound, but when we played the Yankees, something inside him just clicked. A switch was flipped. It was like every opposing batter was part of a gang that leveled his village when he was a boy and he never forgot it. No matter the...

WATCH: Yankees fan loses ring during proposal attempt

No division titles were clinched at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night, but there still was plenty of action to keep the home crowd entertained. The Boston Red Sox’s matchup with the rival New York Yankees temporarily took a back seat in the fifth inning, when a Yankees fan’s proposal to his girlfriend went horribly wrong.

David Ortiz OK with tamer Red Sox-Yankees rivalry

The Boston Red Sox began their final series against their division rival Tuesday night, but no one’s expecting either team to lay the smackdown. Indeed, the Red Sox’s rivalry with the New York Yankees has mellowed out over the past few years, as both teams have gone through their fair share of struggles. It’s a far cry from the late 1990s and early 2000s, when bad blood...

Watching the Red Sox Celebrate on Yankees Turf Never Gets Old

Last year, the Red Sox were in the Bronx when the Yankees clinched the wild card. So Ortiz and Pablo and li’l Xander had to sit there and take it while the Pinstripers jumped up and down and threw Gatorade and sprayed beer and congratulated themselves for sneaking into the postseason under the wire. A short time later, the Yankees were snuffed out of the playoffs, eliminated in...

Red Sox Skipper John Farrell from Hot Seat to AL Manager of the Year?

While teams are still jockeying for position and berths, the biggest remaining mysteries are who will win the various individual awards. The AL MVP race is hotly contested, the NL MVP isn’t. The NL Cy Young is a barnburner with tons of qualified candidates, while the AL race is smaller and less contested. Dave McCullough wonders if Boston Red Sox skipper John Farrell can overcome...

Boston Red Sox: Rick Porcello quietly one of the best pitchers in the league

As of right now, the Major League leader in wins, believe it or not, is Rick Porcello of the Boston Red Sox. Porcello through 32 starts this season is 22-4 with a 3.11 ERA. Porcello’s surge the past few months has put him up near the top of a number of pitching categories. That being said, it is about time to start including him in the discussion for Cy Young candidacy in the American...

Rays cancel pregame tribute per David Ortiz's request

David Ortiz isn’t going to celebrate his final game at Tropicana Field. The Major League Baseball world lost a star Sunday in Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez, who died in a boating accident at the age of 24, but Ortiz lost a friend. Because of that, the Boston Red Sox designated hitter asked the Tampa Bay Rays not to honor him before Sunday’s game. Given today's tragedy...

Can Xander Bogaerts Break Out of His Slump?

One of the most encouraging developments of the 2016 season for the Red Sox — a season that has been chock-full of them, I should mention — is that Xander Bogaerts has seemingly taken another step forward. Still just 23 years old, Boston’s shortstop was quite good in 2015, but something still appeared to be missing. He wasn’t able to put it all together in a way that could...
