Major League Baseball won't have to step in and end the compensation battle for Theo Epstein's services quite yet. Multiple media reports indicate that the Red Sox and Cubs have been given more time to negotiate compensation for the former Boston general manager and current Chicago president of baseball operations. Originally, Bud Selig had announced his intentions to step...
Much was made in the wake of the Red Sox' historic collapse about leadership within the clubhouse and in the organization. A month later, the Sox have a drastic new look, with more changes to come. First baseman Adrian Gonzalez insists that, while the collapse was obviously not what anyone had in mind, the issues that sprung up following the season were overblown. He spoke about...
The names Curt Schilling, David Ortiz, Dave Roberts, Manny Ramirez and so many more are forever etched in Red Sox lore for their roles in the 2004 World Series title. As far as Tony La Russa is concerned, the former Cardinals manager has earned his place in Boston sports history, too. "The thing I would point out is -- Boston had the big dream," La Russa said on The Dennis...
After leaving the Red Sox job this fall, Terry Francona said he didn't know when he'd get back into coaching. He may not wait long.

David Ortiz waits by his phone."I was expecting something would happen before (the exclusive negotiating period ran out), but so many things are going on," Ortiz said. "I know everybody has priorities, and to be honest with you, I thought I was one of them."I don't want to make fun of the guy, because I love Big Papi, but he ... kinda sounds like a teenager...
BOSTON (AP) -- Dale Sveum remembers both good times and tough times in Boston.
Now, he'd like another chance with the Red Sox -- as manager.
Boston interviewed Sveum, currently the Milwaukee Brewers' hitting coach, for its open managerial job on Wednesday.
A third base coach with the Red Sox in 2004 and 2005, Sveum was the second person interviewed by the Red Sox this...
