Time for Red Sox to Embrace the Spoiler Role. Starting with the Rays.

Yeah, it’s a picture of Carl Crawford. For no reason whatsoever. The Sox are dead-ass last in the East. Nine and a half games behind the Buck Showalter Dancers and 6.5 back in the wild card. Only three teams in the American league have worse records than them. And Rick Aguilea’s not walking through that door. In other words, it’s time to perform last rites on our 2014 playoff...

After blowing lead, Orioles bounce back for 7-6 win over Red Sox in 12 innings

With his team going deep into another extra-inning game at Fenway Park, Orioles manager Buck Showalter scanned the dugout and saw first baseman Chris Davis. His mind immediately went back to that 17-inning game in 2012 when he was forced to call on Davis to pitch the club to victory. “I had some deja vu going,” Showalter said. “I’m going, ‘Come on.’” That victory...

Zach Britton, Buck Showalter and Wei-Yin Chen on Orioles' 2-1 victory at Kansas City

And when the need for a save arose in the ninth inning, left-hander Zach Britton got the call to try and close out a game for the first time in his professional career...
