Red Sox owner John Henry feels Yawkey Way evokes racist past

Boston Red Sox owner John Henry has wanted the city to change the name of Yawkey Way for a while, and the current political climate might provide the right timing.

Red Sox stole signs electronically from Yankees, other teams

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred confirmed Tuesday that the Boston Red Sox used electronic communication from the dugout to steal opponents' signs and relay them to Boston players during games.

The New York Yankees filed a formal complaint against the Red Sox on July 18, sources told ESPN's Buster Olney. Baseball's investigation of the Red Sox is ongoing, Manfred said from Fenway Park ahead of Boston's game against Toronto, but he expects it will be completed before the end of the regular season.

Mattress Mack will throw out the ceremonial first pitch tomorrow at Minute Maid Park before Game 1 of the Astros-Red Sox ALDS.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Jose Altuve hits 3 home runs in Astros' playoff opener vs. Red Sox

Jose Altuve hit three home runs in the Houston Astros' 8-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of their American League Division Series on Thursday.

Altuve connected twice off Red Sox ace Chris Sale and then against reliever Austin Maddox at Minute Maid Park. All three were solo shots.

Altuve led the majors in batting this year. He is listed at just 5-foot-6.

Your guide to Wednesday's LCS games: Astros-Yankees all tied, Dodgers can advance

The most important thing of the day: The Cubs' title defense could end, meaning the 1998-2000 Yankees would remain the last team to repeat as World Series champs.

Whether or not they move on to the World Series, it's the start of a new dynasty for the Yankees.

I would be very excited for a Yankees/Dodgers match up- time will tell.

Dominant starting pitching driving Yankees' postseason run

Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch was trying to explain the reason for his team's offensive travails earlier this week when he put in a plug for the opposition. Slumps don't occur in a vacuum. More often than not, futility is a collaborative effort.

Joe Maddon ejected for second time in NLCS, umpire admits call was wrong

The plate umpire in Game 4 of the NLCS said he was "dead wrong" in overturning a call that saw Cubs manager Joe Maddon ejected for the second time in the series.

With the Cubs leading 3-2 in the top of the eighth inning and a runner on first base, Dodgers outfielder Curtis Granderson swung at the seventh pitch of the at-bat from Wade Davis as the ball bounced in front of catcher Willson Contreras.

Party like it's 1988! Enrique Hernandez, Dodgers slam Cubs to seal first World Series trip in 29 years

In the end, it was most fitting. The Los Angeles Dodgers' quest for a pennant ended on the field where it began nearly a year ago, on the ancient grounds of Wrigley Field.

It was most fitting that the winning pitcher was the Dodgers’ longtime ace, Clayton Kershaw, who flashed his best stuff in two months and dazzled the Chicago Cubs for six innings. In years past, the Dodgers might have asked Kershaw to do more. This season, they didn’t need it.
