A-Rod snaps photo for couple while out in Boston area

As a member of the Evil Empire, New York Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez is a marked man in Boston to say the least. But he apparently isn’t so sour on the town and its Red Sox-loving residents that he wouldn’t do a favor for a nice couple while spending some time taking in the sights at Harvard. With the Yankees in town for a three-game series at Fenway Park, Rodriguez took...

Red Sox- Racial Issues Matter

Three players a largely responsible for the Red Sox’ recent surge- Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr and David Ortiz. Betts has a chance to become the Sox first 20-20 man (homers and stolen bases) in a number of years. Bradley has blossomed in August, both at bat and in the field.  Ortiz is approaching 500 homers.

August a Roller Coaster Month for Red Sox Nation

Red Sox confiscate Don Orsillo posters to hinder fan protest

The Boston Red Sox told employees to confiscate signs from fans supporting announcer Don Orsillo prior to Monday’s game against the New York Yankees.

Werner on adding O’Brien… “I think...

Terry Collins didn't challenge double out of fear of HR

New York Mets manager Terry Collins decided against challenging David Ortiz’s pinch-hit, ninth-inning double Saturday. Why? Because giving up a double is better than giving up a home run.

In a Lost Season, the Red Sox Still Have Me Punching Walls

Now wait, before you judge: punching walls is a good thing. At least as I see it. Sure, the wall hates it and the noise gives the neighbors even more fodder for their eventual lawsuit against me.
