For many, the 2015 Red Sox season felt like a loss a few months ago, when the team first occupied the cellar of the AL East. And with Koji Uehara out for the season, Hanley Ramirez switching positions while being injured, and John Farrell leaving the team after being diagnosed with cancer in August,...

It’s one of those baseball clichés: they’ll make a move, but not until the trade deadline. The Red Sox are under .500 nearing the end of May, but, they’re still in striking distance of the first place New York Yankees. While the pitching has been serviceable of late, you’d be hard pressed to...

If you were told that the price of a ticket to a Red Sox game was lower than the price of a meal from the 150 Tremont Café, would you believe it? Well, allow me to clear up the confusion, with the “Red Sox Student 9’s” program, high school and college students can purchase standing room only...

With opening day just a few weeks away, the Boston Red Sox should have a solid idea of what their 25-man roster will look like. With the major additions of Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez, as well as a revitalized Dustin Pedroia and Mike Napoli, this lineup is sure to look a lot different from last...

By Sammy Hurwitz It's over. Derek Jeter’s career ended on a high note, as the 20-year Major League Baseball veteran was removed from Sunday’s ballgame after hit number 3,465.

By: Mario Vasquez The Red Sox (3-5) were swept at home by a national league team for the first time since 2012. Were they possibly distracted by the events carried over from winning the World Series last year? Either way, they are professionals. Congratulations to Red Sox for a spectacular season,...

For the third time in less than 10 years, the Boston Red Sox have ended their season with champagne, tears, a trophy, and of course, duck boats.
