The Sports Edge - In praise of Papi

What's your Big Papi moment?

It seems like every Red Sox fan has one and that's because the story of David Ortiz and his impact on his team and adopted hometown can't be measured simply in numbers, even though those numbers are remarkable.

Road to the World Series 2016

Thoughts on this year's MLB playoff teams

The long slog of baseball's regular season has come to an end. As of this writing, just 10 teams remain in the hunt for a World Series championship. Two-thirds of the league has returned home to await next spring when, as is often said, hope springs eternal.

The Sports Edge Seems like (not so) old times

The recent weekend sweep of the New York Yankees by the Red Sox was a thing to behold, as it not only solidified the team's playoff position for the first time since 2013, but effectively ruined anyremote chance that the Yankees could get in. It also sent other teams in baseball the clear message that, despite their many ups and downs along the way, this team is peaking at the right time.

Red Sox Report Card August 2016

Well, this probably shouldn't come as a surprise.

The Boston Red Sox are in the thick of things in the American League playoff race as of the end of August, they sat two games behind the Blue Jays for the division lead and two games ahead of the Orioles and Tigers for the first wild card spot. They are very much in contention.

Red Sox Report Card - July 2016

And the rollercoaster ride continues.

The Red Sox have had an OK July in terms of their record; they remain solidly in the playoff hunt despite the unexpected competitiveness at the top of the AL East. They've won more than they've lost for the month, though they certainly missed opportunities to have a much better stretch.

Red Sox Report Card - June 2016

What goes up must come down.

That's the unfortunate reality faced by the Boston Red Sox, whose white-hot month of May essentially ensured that June was going to be a letdown to some degree. The team just couldn't be expected to maintain that level of production for a full season.

Rolling the MLB draft dice

Taking a look at Boston's 2016 selections

The major league baseball draft is vastly different from those of the other major sports leagues. In the NFL and the NBA and to a slightly lesser extent the NHL draft picks are expected to join their new teams and start performing more or less immediately.
