Nathan Eovaldi wants to re-sign with Boston, yet to have talks with team

27 days ago   |   By Yardbarker

As he prepares for the World Series, Red Sox right-hander Nathan Eovaldi says he has yet to have any talks with the club regarding a deal that would keep him off of the open market, John Tomase of WEEI.com reports. The hurler says he'd “love to be back,” though unsurprisingly it looks as if he'll test the open market first. It's certainly possible to imagine a fit with Boston, though the same could be said of quite a few other organizations as well. Here's more from the American League: There's some belief that the Rays will land Cuban righty Sandy Gaston, according to MLB.com's Joe...

LAS VEGAS - In a World Series with no shortage of villains, even Red Sox haters must appreciate Mookie Betts, the best all-around player in baseball and the driving force behind the majors' most dominant team this season.

Red Sox's success may change MLB's power-heavy philosophy

27 days ago   |   By New York Post

BOSTON - Is there a sweet spot? Is there a place in which you hit plenty of homers, but do not sell out to the point in which frequent strikeouts become the “acceptable” trade-off? The Red Sox are at the 114th World Series representing this style. The Dodgers symbolize something more modern and Yankees-esque in...

Dodgers will travel to the home of the 'Beat L.A.' chant

27 days ago   |   By Los Angeles Times

When figuring out the dynamics of this historic World Series between the Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox, one needs to really know only one fact. The “Beat L.A'' chant started in Boston. Of course it did. It was first heard in May 1982 in sweltering Boston Garden, during a Celtics' Game 7 playoff...

World Series preview: 6 players who could decide Red Sox vs. Dodgers

27 days ago   |   By Sportsnet

Few World Series matchups have brought as many smiles to the commissioner's office as this one: Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Boston Red Sox , two of the game's most historic franchises in two of its biggest markets; the first Series to be contested by teams led by visible minority managers - Alex Cora and Dave Roberts - who are very much out of the mould of modern-day managing; a series loaded with potential redemption tales; a little bit of edginess; and players with deep resumes in need of final burnishing. And runs... my goodness but there will be runs!
The Red Sox are attempting to win...

Dustin Pedroia has funny response to Manny Machado question

27 days ago   |   By Yardbarker

Dustin Pedroia did his part to avoid rehashing the issues between the Boston Red Sox and Manny Machado. Machado and the Red Sox have a history going back to the shortstop's time with the Baltimore Orioles. In 2017, Machado caught Pedroia with a high-spikes slide and then got plunked two days later. Leading up to Game 1 of the World Series, Red Sox players have been asked to comment on their feelings about Machado, who is now with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Pedroia avoided the subject and provided a humorous answer. While with Baltimore, Machado did not make many friends around the Boston...

Boston Red Sox have this going for them in the World Series

27 days ago   |   By Yardbarker

The 2018 World Series is making history even before the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers take the field for Game 1 at Fenway Park on Tuesday night. How so? Well, it's the first time these two franchises have faced one another in a Fall Classic since 1916. The Dodgers weren't in LA and weren't the Dodgers yet - they were the Brooklyn Robins - and some guy named Babe Ruth was a pitcher for the Red Sox. And although Los Angeles hasn't won a title since 1988, both clubs have at least six championships under their respective belts, which is only the third time that's ever happened. What...
