Red Sox Should Stay the Course With Jackie Bradley Jr.

In Major League Baseball, producing difference-making young players is crucial to building an annual contender. Even the big market teams cannot fill every position with premium names carrying salaries north of $20 million a year.

Jackie Bradley Jr.’s Gold Glove Snub A Reminder Of Red Sox’s Dilemma

Jackie Bradley Jr.’s Gold Glove snub is criminal, yet there’s a more troublesome reality threatening the Boston Red Sox and Major League Baseball. Bradley, who undeniably should have earned American League Gold Glove honors ahead of Baltimore Orioles center fielder Adam Jones, is facing an uncertain future based on his failure to make offensive strides in 2014. The 24-year-old’s...

John Farrell: Jackie Bradley Jr. ‘Would Get My Vote’ For Gold Glove

What The Sox Lose By Demoting Bradley, Jr.
