David Krejci’s Contract Extension A Good Investment For Bruins

The most recent memory of David Krejci is him struggling to score in the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs. He failed to find the back of the net and tallied just four assists in 12 games as the Bruins fell to the rival Montreal Canadiens in Game 7 of their second-round series. Despite his disappointing postseason campaign, agreeing to a six-year contract with Krejci that’s reportedly...

Red Sox Notes: Allen Craig Struggling To Gain Traction Since Returning

Ranaudo, who entered his fourth start with the Red Sox with a 3-0 record, suffered the loss in the middle game of Boston’s series against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium. The Red Sox’s offense didn’t help. The Red Sox were held to six hits by Hiroki Kuroda and Co. in a 5-1 loss. It was a disappointing...

Red Sox Haven’t Discussed Trying Versatile Mookie Betts At Third Base

Mookie Betts’ athleticism gives the Boston Red Sox options. The Red Sox’s outfield has become a crowded place in a short amount of time. And second base is out of the question for obvious reasons. Could the Red Sox thus consider trying Betts at third base, where Will Middlebrooks has failed to take the next step in his major league career? In theory, yes. But don’t count on...

Dolphins’ Mike Wallace Looking Forward To Matchup With Darrelle Revis (Video)

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace said way back in 2010 that he wasn’t afraid of New England Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis. Wallace and Revis are wearing different uniforms than that first time they met — they played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Jets, respectively — but the Miami pass-catcher still is echoing those same sentiments. “I’m prepared...

Henry Owens’ season will end whenever the Pawtucket Red Sox wrap up their International League playoff run.

Brandon Workman: ‘I’m Fully Capable Of Being A Starter’ (Video)

Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Brandon Workman has taken the loss in each of his last eight starts, but they haven’t all been terrible outings. It’s a lack of consistency that has Workman yo-yoing between Triple-A Pawtucket and the big leagues, but luckily, the 26-year-old recognizes that and is still confident in himself. “I hadn’t been as consistent as I like to be, but...

Jackie Bradley Jr.’s demotion to Triple-A Pawtucket on Aug. 18 wasn’t a product of any coachability issues, according to Boston Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington. Bradley took to Twitter on Wednesday to fire back at a report that stated the outfielder’s “stubbornness with the coaching staff” contributed to his mid-August demotion. Cherington also refuted the report...

Red Sox Interested In Re-Signing Koji Uehara Despite Recent Struggles

Koji Uehara’s recent struggles haven’t changed the Boston Red Sox’s opinion of the veteran closer. Uehara’s ERA has jumped more than a full run — 1.27 to 2.36 — over his last five outings, in which he has blown two saves and suffered two losses. The Red Sox still are interested in retaining Uehara in free agency this offseason, though, as the late-season woes are being...

David Pastrnak On Bruins Teammate Zdeno Chara: ‘He’s Kind Of Scary’

At around 7-feet with skates on and 256 pounds, Zdeno Chara certainly is an imposing figure on the ice, so it’s no wonder that other hockey players would find the Boston Bruins defenseman a bit frightening. One of those players just happens to be teammate David Pastrnak, who skated with Chara for the first time at an informal practice Wednesday. “He’s kind of scary,” the...

The New York Yankees ran right into two outs Wednesday against the Boston Red Sox.
