Game 2015.37: Tigers at Cardinals

So are the Tigers (in other words Miguel Cabrera) over their night game funk? It certainly seems like it after last night. On the other hand, other than Gose and Cespedes the bats seemed to be full of NyQuil until the 7th inning, so maybe it was more a St. Louis Blowpen issue than kicking the night-game stupor. At any rate, it’s incredible how often that scenario happens: Cabrera...

WATCH: Yoenis Cespedes makes great catch to rob homer

Detroit Tigers fans, meet Yoenis Cespedes. The 29-year-old left fielder made quite the first impression for his new team in the Tigers’ Opening Day matchup with the Minnesota Twins at Comerica Park. In the third inning, Twins batter Kurt Suzuki smacked a David Price offering deep to left field that appeared earmarked for the seats. But Cespedes tracked it down and made a leaping...

Red Sox coaches reportedly ‘hate’ Yoenis Cespedes

Yoenis Cespedes’ stay in Boston appears as if it will be a short one. Cespedes was acquired by the Red Sox prior to the trade deadline for Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes. Cespedes is under team control through 2015, so it looked like Boston would get a season and a half out of him at...Read More

Could the Red Sox really trade Yoenis Cespedes?

Yoenis Cespedes is supposed to provide the Red Sox lineup with some much-needed power, but with just a year remaining on his contract, the Cuban outfielder could also be used as a trade chip this offseason. When the Red Sox acquired Yoenis Cespedes prior to July’s trade deadline, the 28-year-old slugger was billed as an antidote to the club’s power woes on offense. With Cespedes’...

Boston Red Sox: Outfield goes from weakness to strength

Cespedes unsure if he'll stay in Boston?

When the Boston Red Sox traded for Yoenis Cespedes in late July, it made all the sense in the world. Deal away a veteran in Jon Lester, who was set to become a free agent and could potentially re-sign with Boston in the offseason, for a power-hitting outfielder. A power hitter that’s under team control for the 2015 season. Fresh off knocking in his 100th run of the season, Cespedes...

Boston Red Sox: Offseason targets

With one game remaining in what has been a dispiriting season for the Boston Red Sox, it’s never too early to turn our eyes towards some of the names that will be available once the year is over and free agency opens.
