What is Going on in Oakland?

If you’re curious as to why coverage has seemingly been so scarce regarding the Milwaukee Brewers’ collapse from late August into September, it’s because one team out in the AL West figured they’d try to best them. Or something. I’m talking about the Oakland Athletics, and their tremendous fall from first place to struggling for a Wild Card spot. Sound familiar? That...

As Long As We Are Looking Ahead to 2015

Is Yoenis Cespedes still going to be in Boston in 2015? Will Giancarlo Stanton be here? Jon Lester? What do we make of Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Mookie Betts’ 2015 destinations? These are all questions being asked about 2015, and the answers are less than certain and purely speculative. What is no longer speculative is the schedule for 2015, and the Red Sox will be welcomed as a...

Craig Breslow: Yoenis Cespedes ‘Can Throw A Baseball Across The World’

Yoenis Cespedes has drawn rave reviews in his short time with the Boston Red Sox.

Boston Red Sox land Rusney Castillo

In a move that required a record amount of money towards a free agent who’s yet to see a pitch in MLB, the Boston Red Sox continued to re-shape their offense moving forward by inking Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo to a seven-year, $72.5 million deal. Castillo, who was born in Ciego de Avila, is a 5-foot-9, 205 pound outfielder. He is described by scouts as a four-tool player...

Yoenis Cespedes A Difference-Maker In Boston Red Sox Lineup (Video)

Saying that acquiring outfielder Yoenis Cespedes from the Oakland Athletics has made a difference for the Boston Red Sox is an understatement. The Cuban star has made an immediate impact on the struggling Boston offense, reaching base safely in 11 of his 12 games before Saturday’s contest against the Houston Astros. He hit three home runs in that time, all of which gave the Red...

A's to keep Yoenis Cespedes T-shirt promotion after trade

It seems to happen every year, where a planned promotion (bobblehead, T-shirt, ceremony) becomes awkward because the recipient was unceremoniously traded off the team.  (Former) Oakland Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes was dealt to the Boston Red Sox on Thursday for a front-end rotation pitcher in Jon Lester.  In the category of bad timing, the Athletics had planned a Cespedes...

WATCH: Cespedes shows off cannon arm on Albert Pujols

In case you thought yesterday’s 300-foot dart to home plate was a fluke, Athletics OF Yoenis Cespedes just proved you wrong. During the sixth inning of tonight’s Angels-Athletics game, Albert Pujols slapped an offspeed pitch into the left-field corner. Cespedes took his time playing the ball as it caromed off the wall, and also over-ran it a bit, which took him an extra second...
