For the past several years, September has been the month of Red Sox fans’ discontent. In 2011, the last month of summer sealed Terry Francona’s fate as the Sox went a dismal 7-20.

The last couple years have not been all that sensational, either...

If Dustin Pedroia heard all the chatter about how the Boston Red Sox perform with the bases loaded, then it certainly didn’t faze him Saturday night. The Red Sox had the bases juiced with two outs when Pedroia came up to bat in the seventh inning against the Tampa Bay Rays. But instead of squandering the opportunity, as the Red Sox have been wont to do in 2016, the second baseman...
Dustin Pedroia did not play Sunday and is likely to miss Monday, as he’s taking a leave of absence from the Boston Red Sox due to an undisclosed family matter. The Sox haven’t made any roster moves to fill the hole, so Pedroia is expected back very soon. Pedroia is undeniably the best hitter in the league right now. Going into his final at bat of Saturday’s game, Pedroia tied...
BOSTON — It’s usually pretty hard to keep Dustin Pedroia off the field, but some things are bigger than baseball. The Red Sox second baseman left the team before Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Royals to attend funeral services for a family member. The Red Sox didn’t put him on the bereavement list for timing reasons. “He’s left the team to attend some services...
BOSTON — The Red Sox are going to have to finish off the Kansas City Royals without their leadoff guy. Dustin Pedroia is out of Boston’s lineup Sunday due to a death in his family. However, Red Sox manager John Farrell said the red-hot second baseman didn’t go to the bereavement list because he plans to return to Fenway Park some time after the start of Monday’s game against...
BOSTON — Dustin Pedroia is perhaps one of the most underrated players in Major League Baseball, but all eyes are on the Red Sox second baseman right now. Pedroia is a career .301 hitter, so Boston expects production from him year in and year out. However, the tear the 33-year-old is on right now is impressive even for him. Before Saturday’s 6-3 win over the Kansas City Royals...
