Theo Epstein left the Boston Red Sox about two years ago, but he didn’t leave Boston for good. During the MLB offseason, he and his family would retreat to their Chestnut Hill, Mass., home and take in the sights of the city Epstein once helped bring the Commissioner’s Trophy to. Now, it seems as if Epstein is ready to sever all ties. The Chicago Cubs president of baseball operations bought the house for $2.35 million six years ago and is now selling it for $3.65 million. The home is located in Brookline, Mass., a suburb of Boston. Although it looks like a modest home with a white picket fence and freshly trimmed grass, don’t be fooled. It is a multimillion-dollar mansion that comes with all the bells and whistles. Six bedrooms, five baths and a two-car garage fit Epstein’s family of three comfortably. The master suite has a walk-in closet, fireplace and spa bath. Originally built in 1898, it has been updated to accommodate all sorts of entertainment, including a guest suite on the t...

The Jake Peavy trade is a good one for Boston

​The Red Sox front office is smart. They have a significant amount of resources, and they use them well. In the trade announced late Tuesday night, in which they sent Jose Iglesias to Detroit in a three-way deal for Jake Peavy, Boston used those resources well. ​Within a very deep farm system, the Red Sox have a strength at shortstop.

Jonny Gomes’ Unassisted Double Play in Left Field Preserves Red Sox’ Lead in 15th Inning (Video)

Unassisted double plays are nothing new in baseball, but they don’t usually come courtesy of the left fielder. Jonny Gomes pulled off that rare feat Wednesday night — in the 15th inning, no less. With two men on and one out in a 4-4 game, Seattle’s Michael Saunders sent a sinking line drive into left field. Gomes robbed Saunders with a diving grab, however, before trotting...

Dustin Pedroia Should Not Have Won MVP in 2008, Gary Sheffield Says

The 2008 season was Gary Sheffield‘s second-to-last in Major League Baseball, and it wasn’t one of his finest. Sheffield was 39 during the campaign, and struggled to a .725 OPS in just 114 games for the Detroit Tigers. But that isn’t stopping Sheffield from disparaging that year’s MVP — Dustin Pedroia. “Those numbers [Pedroia put up] we put up in the first half [of the...

No deal now, so Cubs will try to lock up or trade Samardzija in winter

The Cubs have determined they aren't going to get the blockbuster package they sought for Jeff Samardzija right now so they will try again to lock him up or trade him in the winter. If a third attempt to sign him to a big extension fails in the offseason a trade will become much more likely. The Cubs were looking for a package of frontline prospects for Samarardzija and only...

Report: Cliff Lee Trade to Red Sox Is ‘Unlikely’ As Boston Explores Other Options

Well, that didn’t take long. Earlier Tuesday, word came out that the Philadelphia Phillies were demanding top Red Sox prospect Xander Bogaerts in any trade for ace Cliff Lee. About an hour passed before another report emerged indicating that the Red Sox don’t think the 34-year-old left-hander is in the cards — we can only speculate because they believe the price for Lee is...
