Ben Cherington Confident That Xander Bogaerts Will Bounce Back (Video)

Life hasn’t been all sunshine and rainbows for Xander Bogaerts these days.

Boston Red Sox trade rumors: Will Ben Cherington pull the trigger?

With the Boston Red Sox hot streak coming to an end these past three games, GM Ben Cherington must decide what direction he wants to take with the team.
