  1. David Ortiz finds his stroke at perfect time

    Oct 24, 2013, 12:24 AM EST

    World Series Cardinals Red Sox Baseball

    David Ortiz had one mammoth hit in the ALCS — a game-tying grand slam off Joaquin Benoit in Game 2 — but he finished just 2-for-22 for the series. Apart from the slam, he hadn’t driven in any runs in seven games. His Game 1 of the World Series shouldn’t have started any better. With…

  2. Dana DeMuth gets bailed out by his buds

    Oct 23, 2013, 9:24 PM EST

    World Series Cardinals Red Sox Baseball

    It took less than an inning for a horrible umpiring decision in what stands to be the final World Series before expanded instant replay is introduced. Enter Dana DeMuth (GIF from @BuzzfeedSports) DeMuth, the second base ump, said Cardinals shortstop Pete Kozma lost the ball on the exchange, giving the Cardinals an out on a…

  4. Red Sox leave Matt Thornton off World Series roster

    Oct 23, 2013, 11:51 AM EST

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Boston Red Sox

    Matt Thornton threw a simulated game yesterday at Fenway Park to prepare himself in case the Red Sox wanted to add him to the roster for the World Series, but they’ve decided against activating the veteran left-hander. That means Thornton will have sat out the entire postseason after being acquired from the White Sox in…

  5. Clay Buchholz may have a “physical issue”

    Oct 23, 2013, 8:40 AM EST

    Boston Red Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    This is more of a “keep it in the back of your mind” thing, as the Red Sox say that their plans with respect to Clay Buchholz have not changed for the World Series. But Rob Bradford of WEEI reports that there is at least some question about Buchholz’s health at the moment: While a…

  6. Quote of the Day: Daniel Nava, Jonny Gomes, and ice cream

    Getty ice cream cone

    Jonny Gomes has started over Daniel Nava in left field for four out of the last six games and Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald earlier today that he’ll likely stick with the same arrangement for Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday. However, that isn’t getting…

  7. Do the Red Sox or the Cardinals have the World Series pitching edge?

    Oct 21, 2013, 2:10 PM EST

    Adam Wainwright

    This postseason has been dominated by pitching, so who has the arms advantage in the World Series? During the regular season the Red Sox ranked sixth among AL teams in runs allowed and the Cardinals ranked fifth among NL teams in runs allowed, but overall totals can be misleading when it comes to evaluating the…

  8. The Tigers storm back to take the lead in the 6th inning of Game 6

    Oct 19, 2013, 10:35 PM EST

    ALCS - Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers - Game Four

    Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz didn’t have enough gas to get through the sixth inning of Game 6. After shutting the Tigers out through five, he showed diminished velocity and command, as he walked lead-off batter Torii Hunter on consecutive 88 MPH fastballs. He then surrendered a single to Miguel Cabrera through the hole between…

  9. Max Scherzer just found out baseball is, in fact, a game of inches

    Oct 19, 2013, 9:37 PM EST

    Max Scherzer eyes

    The scene: Runners on first and second after Tigers starter Max Scherzer walks both Xander Bogaerts and Jacoby Ellsbury to start the bottom of the third inning. Shane Victorino poorly attempts to advance both runners with a sacrifice bunt, popping up to a diving Scherzer in front of home plate. Dustin Pedroia then crushes a…

    The Tigers are inching closer to the Red Sox in Game 5 of the ALCS. After Jon Lester walked Victor Martinez to lead off the bottom of the sixth inning, he bounced back by striking out Jhonny Peralta swinging. However, Omar Infante followed with a bloop single which dropped in front of a diving Jacoby…

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    Through the first 14 innings, the ALCS had been a pitcher-dominated affair.

To their credit, the Sox pitching has been nearly as good —…

  20. The Rays’ all just wasn’t quite enough

    Oct 9, 2013, 12:58 AM EST

    Will Middlebrooks, Yunel Escobar

    The Rays used 22 of their 25 players in Tuesday’s loss, and they were one inning away from turning to their Game 5 starter. Still, no matter how much Joe Maddon maneuvered, there was no outgunning the Red Sox this week. It was plenty close. The Rays got the break they needed in the second…

  23. Over-managing playoff managers and bunts that “work”

    Oct 8, 2013, 11:19 AM EST

    jimmy dugan

    If I ever owned a baseball team, I’d want to hire Jimmy Dugan from “A League of their Own” as my manager. This isn’t only because he dislikes the bunt, though that helps — you probably remember the scene where he finally notices what’s happening on the field and calls off Geena Davis’ bunt sign…

    Oct 7, 2013, 11:08 PM EST

    Division Series - Boston Red Sox v Tampa Bay Rays - Game Three

    The Red Sox could have played this one straight up tonight. Instead, they made concessions to it being a postseason games.
