    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe is not a fan of the new rule banning home plate collisions. Indeed he’s so incensed that he decided to mock the idea of protecting athletes whose health and career are put at risk as a result of them: One of the game’s biggest stars — Buster Posey —…

    With Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, Stephen Drew and Jarrod Saltalamacchia all filing for free agency, the world champion Red Sox would seem to have a whole lot of flexibility this winter.

    World Series Cardinals Red Sox Baseball

    BOSTON — It’s certainly the biggest start of Michael Wacha‘s life too, but Wacha is 22 years-old and kids, God love ‘em, tend to think that they’re going to have the sun shining on them forever. John Lackey is 35 and has pretty much seen it and done it all. He’s been that kid winning…

    It started with the lineup: Mike Matheny chose to go with Shane Robinson in center field in Game 5 and had him bat second, with Carlos Beltran dropping into the cleanup spot.
