The Red Sox’s forthcoming decision to fire manager Terry Francona makes little sense given his involvement in the franchise’s successes and managerial overall record. I can’t imagine who could fill the shoes of one the game’s best.
How does a Yankees fan who spent five years living in Boston capture this epic collapse? I’m not really sure, but I know this collapse fits as a good placement holder for the baseball season with an off-day before the start of the postseason.
CC Sabathia finally conquered the Red Sox on Tuesday night. The Yankees’ ace notched his first victory against Boston this season, one that could spur on the Bombers.
Jose Reyes’ injury history could actually be good for the Mets when it comes to the team’s chances of retaining their star shortstop in free agency.
CC Sabathia fell back down to earth during the Yankees’ 10-4 loss to the Red Sox. Now with the series split and the teams tied for first in the AL East, Sunday will be the all-important rubber game.
Trading Jose Reyes may seem unthinkable to most Mets fans — but it would be logical for the organization to move their franchise player before the July 31st trading deadline.
Yankees fans take little solace in second place, unless the Red Sox are in third. Or fourth. Or fifth.
To the dismay of Yankees fans, the Red Sox came close to winning 100 games in six of the last eight seasons. Could this be the year they do it?
It wasn’t Fenway Park in September, but pitching against the Red Sox on Monday night was a good test for Yankees youngster Manny Banuelos — and he was up for it.
The Rays are counting on Manny Ramirez and Johnny Damon to help them remain competitive against the Yankees and Red Sox in baseball’s toughest division.
Mariano Rivera admitted the unthinkable had been a possibility.
The Boston Red Sox offered him a chance to turn in his pinstripes and switch sides in baseball’s fiercest rivalry.
Cliff Lee wasn’t Plan A. He was The Plan. There isn’t another free agent pitcher even close to his abilities; in fact there isn’t even another free agent pitcher I would want on the Yankees.
The balance of power in the AL East has shifted back in favor of the Red Sox for the first time in three years, and the Yankees have no choice but to make sure Cliff Lee wears pinstripes in 2011 and beyond.
The Yankees have made an offer to free-agent Russell Martin, and according to his agent, New York views Martin as a “starting catcher.”
Theo Epstein played it coy. He wouldn’t discuss Carl Crawford by name and yet he still made it clear than the Boston Red Sox had accomplished their goal of a major retooling by adding a second impact bat to join newly acquired Adrian Gonzalez.
