MLB 2019: 25 Best Baseball Players 25 and Under

By Nicholas Ian Allen, 1 year 2 months ago
In many ways, 2018 was the Year of the 25-year-old in Major League Baseball. Mookie Betts led the Boston Red Sox to a World Series title while also running away with the American League Most Valuable Player Award. Tampa Bay Rays lefty Blake Snell posted an incredible 1.89 ERA across 31 starts on his way to AL Cy Young Award honors. Cubs infielder Javier Baez emerged as an all-around star and...

Boston Red Sox 2019: Scouting, Projected Lineup, Season Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 year 3 months ago
And now comes the hard part — when the encore doubles as the farewell tour. The Red Sox shocked baseball with a run of wire-to-wire dominance unwitnessed since the 1998 Yankees, winning 108 games and their fourth World Series title since 2004. They cleared every obstacle in their path, from Opening Day, when the bullpen imploded vs. Tampa, to Game 3 of the World Series, when a walk-off...

By Jake Rose, 1 year 7 months ago
It sounded like a howitzer. The sound of cork and cowhide echoed off the lumber from Yasiel Puig’s bat as Dodger Stadium roared and shook like an aftershock. Puig’s bomb capped off a four-run sixth inning that felt insurmountable with Rich Hill carving up the Red Sox potent lineup. But then Mitch Moreland teed off Ryan Madson in the top of the seventh, a three-run laser that pulled...

By Jake Rose, 1 year 7 months ago
In the time it took to complete Game 3 of the World Series, you could have watched a cable broadcast of Braveheart, commercials and all, two times — plus an old episode of The West Wing for good measure. Last night’s — well, this morning’s — Game 3 lasted seven hours and 20 minutes and was the longest World Series game, postseason game, and interleague game ever...

World Series Game 3 Prediction and Preview: Boston Red Sox vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

By Jake Rose, 1 year 7 months ago
The World Series shifts from freezing Fenway Park to sunny Chavez Ravine with the Boston Red Sox holding a 2-0 lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers. In Game 2, David Price delivered his second quality start in a row, giving up just two runs through six innings with five strikeouts, perfectly setting up the Sox bullpen to secure a 4-2 victory. Joe Kelly, Nathan Eovaldi and Craig Kimbrel were perfect...

World Series Game 2 Prediction and Preview: Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Boston Red Sox

By Jake Rose, 1 year 7 months ago
Neither Clayton Kershaw nor Chris Sale was sharp in Game 1 of the 2018 World Series on Tuesday night. What could have been a cornerstone World Series moment for two of this generation’s best pitchers, including one of the greatest of all-time, was stymied by missed spots and good two-out hitting.   The velocity came back to Chris Sale. After hovering in the low 90s for the better...

By Jake Rose, 1 year 7 months ago
The 2018 World Series is not the first time the Dodgers and Red Sox have gotten together for the Fall Classic, but it has been quite a while since these two historic franchises have faced each other to determine baseball's champion.   In fact, it's been more than 100 years since the 1916 World Series that pitted the Dodgers (then known as the Brooklyn Robins) against the Red Sox....

By Jon Kinne, 2 years 2 months ago
The biggest deal of the most recent hot stove season in MLB was executed by that team in the Bronx. After falling one game short of reaching the World Series, the New York Yankees added another slugger by acquiring Giancarlo Stanton and his 59 home runs from the Miami Marlins. As a result, the Bombers are the team that everyone expects to challenge the defending champion Houston Astros...
