Prior to manning the Red Sox beat, he spent several years at the Lowell Sun.

Another regular season down. But for Jon Lester, this wasn't any other regular season.

There is no uncertainty when it comes to Mookie Betts' first-inning at-bats. He knows the drill.

PITTSBURGH -- Rusney Castillo finally made it to the Red Sox. Is his former Cuban teammate Yasmani Tomas next?
Rob Bradford

The actual words, "I told you so," never came out of David Ortiz's mouth, but they might well have.

As usual, Mother knew best.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Brian Butterfield doesn't personally know Tom Brady.
Rob Bradford

There has been plenty of talk about the newest Red Sox' mystery man, Rusney Castillo. Rightfully so.
Rob Bradford

Rob Bradford
08/10/2014 - 5:01am
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- It is, and will be, the most important -- and fascinating -- aspect of the season's final seven weeks.  Who will play center field for the 2015 Red Sox?
Rob Bradford
08/08/2014 - 12:04am
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Jon Lester seems to really like playing in Boston.
Rob Bradford
08/06/2014 - 6:18am
There is that narrative out there, the one that suggests that Jon Lester was only expressing his unbridled desire to remain a member of the Red Sox as a public relations ploy.
Rob Bradford
07/31/2014 - 2:00am
Few were in the mood to talk. Truth be told, it seemed like few were in the mood to play baseball. What was left of the residue from a 2013 championship season was about to be washed away.
Rob Bradford
07/29/2014 - 1:53am
David Ortiz is hoping. He's not alone in the Red Sox clubhouse.
Rob Bradford
07/25/2014 - 12:43am
As of Thursday, the idea of Jon Lester remaining with the Red Sox in 2015 seemed more unlikely than ever.
Rob Bradford
07/23/2014 - 1:48am
TORONTO -- Jake Peavy wanted this to work. The Red Sox wanted this to work.
Rob Bradford
07/22/2014 - 9:35am
TORONTO -- There are turnarounds, and then there are turnarounds.
