Summer is coming. The 2015 Major League Baseball season kicked off Sunday night, and the Boston Red Sox will follow Monday afternoon with their season opener against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Philadelphia Phillies, left-handed pitcher Cole Hamels “want[s] to win” and feels that his best shot at achieving that goal is through a trade to another team, according to Bob Nightengale of USAToday. One of the most recent teams with an offer on the table at this time is our own Boston Red Sox.

A stellar performance by Jon Lester let Boston do just that as the Sox departed Philadelphia with a 5-2 victory earlier today. Jon Lester was the star of this game as […]
Terry Francona has a problem: without a DH for the upcoming nine-game NL road trip, should he play David Ortiz (.313 BA, 17 homers, .977 OPS) at first and move Adrian Gonzalez (.359, 15, 1.019) to right field, or keep Gonzalez at first and use Ortiz primarily as a pinch hitter? Moving Gonzalez preserves the […]
