Commentary: Baseball brawls are part of the game

Just like in many other mainstream sports, aggressive behavior is involved in the entertainment on the field. Baseball is not any different, especially when rivalries run deep. The atmosphere is different in Boston when the Yankees are in town. Normally most games go without violence, but last Wednesday...

After a cold and inconsistent winter, Fenway Park is finally cleared of snow and the tune of Sweet Caroline will fill the air again.

The Yankees had no idea what to expect from the Red Sox this series as they entered Fenway Park last Thursday night. David Ortiz hit a solo home run in the eighth inning, adding to his 538 career home runs. The Sox were trailing behind in the ninth inning when, with two outs, Hanley Ramirez steps up to the p...

By Sharyn Gladstone After an active offseason the Boston Red Sox began the 2015 season with high expectations, but ended with their third last place finish in the past four years.

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,...

Red Sox: time for change is now

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. His “un-Jeter-like” season concluded, also, with a New York Yankees victory. After a fist pump and one final moment in the...

By Brian Horner The 2013 World Championship brought a lot of expectations for the Boston Red Sox 2014 season which fell very short of every fan wants and desires.

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,...
