Boston Red Sox
Lester’s contract, agreed to on the second day of baseball’s winter meetings, contains an option for 2021 that, if it becomes guaranteed, would make the deal worth $170 million over seven seasons.
Red Sox fans cried foul over an innocuous tweet the team acknowledges was ill-timed — the second social media gaffe by a Boston pro sports team in as many weeks.
The Red Sox have a message for the Yankees, the American League and Major League Baseball: We’re back.
He was OK getting nude for the role, but one thing he wouldn’t do? Wear a Yankees hat.
Were you feeling good last Sunday afternoon, perhaps indefinably so? I was. And here’s why…
Fans in pinstripes milled unharassed inside Fenway Park — a scene unimaginable a decade ago — mixing with Bostonians showing their esteem for a player who relished the rivalry as much as they do.
Derek Jeter hit a run-scoring infield single in the final at-bat of his 20-year major league career, leaving to a standing ovation at Fenway Park.

Derek Jeter went 1 for 2 with an infield single and left for a pinch hitter in the fifth inning. Even he wasn’t going to pull the Yankees out of this hole in the next-to-last game of his 20-year big league career.
Derek Jeter took the night off after his emotional final home game and watched a bunch of New York Yankees rookies beat a group of Boston Red Sox rookies 3-2 on Friday.
Manager Joe Girardi has Jeter sitting out the series opener on Friday night against the Boston Red Sox. Jeter has said he will play during the weekend series out of respect for the rivalry.
Chris Capuano was watching, hoping for some of that old Bronx mojo. And then, boom, Mark Teixeira. Tie game. Boom, Chase Headley.
Mark Teixeira and Chase Headley hit solo home runs off Koji Uehara in the ninth inning, and the New York Yankees stunned the Boston Red Sox 5-4 Thursday night to bolster their slim playoff hopes.
The Yankees are entering the final month of the season with three teams to pass in the AL wild-card race. Their longest remaining homestand begins Tuesday night against Boston.
The remaking of the Red Sox continues — and this time at the Yankees’ expense.
