The two-block-long street just outside of Fenway Park will henceforth be known as Jersey Street after the Boston Public Improvement Commission voted unanimously to approve a proposal by Red Sox ownership to change the street’s name from Yawkey Way. Red Sox owner John Henry announced his plan to change the name last…
Sean Manaea, a rare bright spot on an otherwise mediocre A’s squad, threw the seventh no-hitter in team history against a Red Sox lineup that has averaged more than six runs a game this season.
While you might think that the ugliest part of last night’s Yankees-Red Sox donnybrook was guys like Joe Kelly and Tyler Austin trying to bloody each other in the infield, Yankees third-base coach Phil Nevin has other concerns—namely, hand waving from Red Sox manager Alex Cora.
Baseball featured one tussle in the afternoon (Padres-Rockies, after a few hit batsmen) and one in the evening (Yankees-Red Sox, after one hit batsman and one hard slide) and, as always, the resulting photographs from Getty and the Associated Press are much more engrossing than any video can be. Here’s a sampling of…
Just a few hours after baseball’s last benches-clearing brawl, here’s another solid one for you. The Red Sox and Yankees got into a tussle in the seventh inning tonight, after Boston’s Joe Kelly hit Tyler Austin in retaliation for a spikes-up slide earlier in the game. Austin slammed his bat down, Kelly motioned for…
Would you like to see the empty eyes of a man who’s almost positive that he’s just fucked up, with nothing left for him to do about it? From the second inning of tonight’s Red Sox-Marlins game, here’s Chris Sale after leaving one right over the plate for Justin Bour:
Mookie Betts chatted with the ESPN announcing crew during the top half of the third inning in a spring training game today. Hey, it’s an exhibition game.
Chris Sale left today’s spring training game against the Astros two outs into the first inning after a J.D. Davis line drive up the middle struck the Red Sox ace in the leg.
Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright has been suspended 15 games without pay for violating the league’s domestic violence policy, according to a report from NBC Sports Boston and later announced by MLB. The suspension stems from an incident in December, when Wright was arrested in Williamson County, Tenn. and charged with…
Opening Day is just six days away. People are getting pretty bored of spring training. During today’s Red Sox-Yankees tilt in Tampa, YES announcers Ken Singleton and John Flaherty held an impromptu book club, discussing that classic tome chronicling people who have died at the Grand Canyon.
For the long-suffering Pittsburgh Steeler fans watching the 1972 AFC playoff game, the season appeared to be over. Trailing 7-6 to the Oakland Raiders, the Steelers faced fourth and 10 from their own 40, with 22 seconds left in the game and no timeouts remaining.
Boston Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright was arrested Friday night in Williamson County, Tenn., and charged with domestic-related assault and prevention of a 911 call, according to local authorities. Both charges are misdemeanors, and Wright later was released from custody after he posted bail.
Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts on Sunday bowled a perfect game at the World Series of Bowling, a Professional Bowlers Association tour event. The two-time All Star—who ESPN called a “bowling aficionado”—told ESPN he’d estimated it was his 10th perfect game in his life (but his first at a PBA event).
This afternoon’s ALDS Game 4 between the Astros and Red Sox was wild and messy, and it’ll be a difficult one to top both in terms of drama and bullpen management.
The Red Sox-Astros series was looking like a real turd heading into Game 3, with the Astros having outscored the Red Sox 16-4 in a pair of lopsided games in Houston. The Red Sox responded Sunday afternoon at Fenway with some overdue offense and managed to push the series to a Game 4.
No, really, we clicked the link and there are a ton of tickets available.
At some point, José Altuve’s height should probably no longer be dwelled on, but seven years into his career, it’s still fun as hell to marvel at him being one of the best players in the baseball—and a good-as-hell candidate for the AL MVP—in tandem with his, uh, modest vertical dimensions.
Tonight’s Game 1 of the ALDS very quickly revealed itself to be far from ideal for Boston starter Chris Sale. That started with the second batter he faced, Alex Bregman, turning a flat slider into a solo home run and continued with the third batter, José Altuve, turning a high fastball into the same thing.
