Terry Francona still has a job as manager of the Boston Red Sox. For now. Despite rampant speculation that Francona and the Sox would part ways this morning after a meeting with ownership, general manager Theo Epstein has released a statement indicating otherwise. “John Henry, Tom Werner, Larry Lucchino, Ben Cherington and I met with Terry Francona this morning at Fenway Park to...
When a team has the largest collapse of all time during the month of September, there is plenty of blame to go around.

Theo Epstein is widely viewed as a baseball mastermind. With...

MLB.com and Facebook have joined forces to create a Postseason Bracket Challenge, similar to that of a March Madness bracket. Fans are asked to predict who will advance in each round of the postseason and how many games each series will go. Those who...
The fallout from the Boston Red Sox's stunning September collapse has begun.
Peter Abraham notes the Red Sox should have enough money to buy a high-profile free agent this winter. Of course, they faced that opportunity last winter.

Three teams — the Yankees, Red Sox and Braves — were all one out from winning their games on Wednesday night, with the latter two playing for their seasons.
All three of those teams lost on Wednesday, and the seasons of the Red Sox and Braves came to a crushing end, capping horrible Septembers as the Ray and Cardinals, respectively, caught them.
