John Farrell: Ortiz's retirement announcement 'bittersweet'

David Ortiz’s career will come to an end when the designated hitter retires following the 2016 season, which is “bittersweet” for Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell to think about. On one hand, Ortiz has earned the year-long farewell thanks to his 503 career home runs and three World Series, but it also means the Boston manager only has one more season with him in the...

John Farrell Would Love For Red Sox To Sign David Price, Zack Greinke (Audio)

Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski hasn’t been shy in saying the team’s No. 1 priority is acquiring...

David Ortiz responds to latest 'Saturday Night Live' skit

    David Ortiz was once again the center of a hilarious “Saturday Night Live” skit over the weekend, and Big Papi is being a great sport about it.

WEEI Radio Negotiating New Red Sox Broadcast Deal

WEEI (93.7 FM) is near the end of its 10-year deal to broadcast Red Sox games on their radio network. The last several years of that pact have been a real loser for the talk-radio station—as The Carmine Hose have finished last three out of the last four years. Needless to say, if WEEI is to keep doing Sox games, the new deal will have to be much more station-friendly. And while...

Rebuilding the Red Sox: What Can You Do With $30 Million?

Look, I’m not the Oracle of Delphi. I’m not even that octopus that picked Super Bowl winners. I’m just a guy with spreadsheets. Predicting things is incredibly hard, and everyone is bad at predictions. That having been said, I love all the senseless guessing and off-chance predicting that comes with the offseason. It’s almost as much fun as seeing what teams actually do....

Necessary Moves: Clay Buchholz, Boston Red Sox

Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded. Some will seem obvious, just as others will seem nonsensical. Some may also seem desperate, but it’s important to understand that this list is entirely subjective. A player can be deemed movable for any of the following reasons: production (or lack thereof), current and future...
