If Jackie Bradley's monthly OPS numbers since 2015 were the stock market, investors would cash out. Too much volatility. In 2015, Bradley posted a .282 OPS in July and a Bonds-ian 1.163 in August. During his All-Star 2016, he peaked at 1.175 and bottomed out at .651. Last year he followed a 1.009...

The umpires didn't cost the Red Sox Thursday's ballyhooed matinee with the Tigers. Their bullpen did. But that didn't stop the Sox from steaming over a peculiar play that didn't go their way in the second inning. With one out and J.D. Martinez on first, Casey McGehee sent a sinking liner to center...

It was only a matter of time. The Red Sox offense has struggled at times recently, but Adrian Sampson was only going to keep it down for so long. Held in check for their first two turns through the order, the Red Sox broke through against Sampson during a three-run fifth, driving the rookie from...

It became apparent this wouldn't be the Red Sox' night on the first Sox at-bat of the evening. Center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr., looking to extend the longest hitting streak in the majors to 30 games, launched a Jon Gray offering deep to right field.
