    Home, FINALLY. Home, triumphantly. Yes, we all know that Major League Baseball, mirroring the United States of America, is teetering on the verge of cancellation, too many participants and practitioners not respecting the novel coronavirus’ obvious danger. Friday brought three COVID postponements, not quite how Rob Manfred and Tony Clark drew it up. Yet if the Yankees’ formal return to Yankee Stadium Friday night, defeating the rival Red Sox, 5-1, in their home opener, didn’t serve as cause for baseball to celebrate, it sure as heck created an opportunity for New York, city and state, to take a well-deserved bow. It did just that in style, with Aaron Judge slamming his third homer in three days (and second game-winning...

    Houston Astros owner Jim Crane believes his team had to take the “bullet” for the sign stealing problem in the MLB. Crane claimed sign stealing is a “bigger problem” in an interview published Friday by USA Today.

    Astros owner Jim Crane is pointing fingers. Crane believes sign-stealing – and cheating in general – is present around the league, with the blame falling solely on the Astros. “I think [MLB] had a bigger problem than everybody realized,’’ Crane told USA Today. “Two other teams [the Yankees and Red Sox] were doing things and got caught, but we’re the ones who took the bullet. That’s the way it works. I’m not trying to blame anyone else. It was our problem. We dealt with it.” Although no players on the Astros were suspended, the team ended up firing manager A.J. Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow for the intricate sign-stealing scandal that aided their 2017 World Series title. The Red...

    BOSTON (CBS) — The Red Sox offense was supposed to carry the team during the shortened 2020 season, but in the early goings of the 60-game campaign, Boston’s usually reliable sluggers aren’t doing much slugging. Instead, Boston’s power is coming from an unlikely source. Catcher Christian Vazquez once again provided all the pop for the Red Sox offense Thursday night against the Mets, mashing a pair of homers and driving in three runs in Boston’s 4-2 victory. Vazquez has carried the Boston offense over the first week of the season, slashing .421/.450/1.105 with a team-leading four homers. Three of those dingers have come over the past two nights, giving Vazquez eight RBIs on the young season — also a team-high....

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Red Sox are 1-4. They look like a minor league team. Since winning big on Opening Day, they’ve been outscored 29-13. It’s bad. As a result, there’s some justified rage seeping its way through the fandom, as Red Sox fans have to be disgustedly saying to themselves, “I waited four months … for this?” Of course, most people expected a dip. But starting the season looking to be in a lower class than the Orioles and Mets is a bit beyond the pale. One of the offshoots of the slow start, if you pay attention to the angry tweets, is an expression of anger toward owner John Henry. It’s not anything particularly...
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — On Friday night, things looked all right for the 2020 Boston Red Sox. No, nobody with any sense of reality expected them to contend for a title. They simply do not have the pitching for that. Yet with a solid debut for this unique shortened season, and with the expanded playoff field officially in effect, the team looked on Opening Day like one that can remain a compelling story throughout the year. Just two days later, though, that is over. And so might be the Red Sox’ season. Hyperbolic? Only moderately, as teams looking to make the playoffs in 2020 cannot lose two games (in grisly fashion) to everybody’s pick for Worst Team...
    Boston (USA), Jul 24 (EFE) .- The designated hitter J.D. Martinez and Ranger Kevin Pillar each produced three runs and the Boston Red Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 13-2. Friday marked Boston’s first regular-season game since a low-season restructuring that included a trade by Mookie Betts and pitcher David Price to the Los Angeles Dodgers, in addition to the departure of Puerto Rican driver Alex Cora, involved in a system illegal signal theft when I was with the Houston Astros. The battery featured Venezuelan second baseman José Peraza, ranger Jackie Bradley Jr., Martinez and Pillar, who each connected doubles as part of a four-run third inning. The Red Sox held on to power in the fourth episode, sending 11 hitters...

(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images) Of course, Boston sports radio can’t say nice things about Mookie Betts.Did you honestly think Boston sports talk radio would praise Mookie Betts these days? In his first season with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the former AL MVP of the Boston Red Sox has just signed a massive contract to seemingly never play for anyone else outside of the Dodgers for the rest of time. Betts is a big fan of calling Los Angeles home these days. Had he gotten that type of offer in Boston, he probably wouldn’t have signed it because he loves living in Los Angeles. So it’s only fitting that Red Sox chairman Tom Werner said not...
    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — An odd baseball season is underway, with a lot more unknowns than certainties for both MLB and the Boston Red Sox. With teams set to travel across the country, many are wondering if MLB can even have a season during a pandemic. And with the Red Sox hitting the reset button over the offseason, few are counting on them to be involved when (if) the postseason does arrive. The 2020 season is going to be the weirdest season of baseball. Ever. Players (some of whom will be wearing masks) will take the field in empty stadiums filled with fake crowd noise, minus weekend Fox games, in which the network will create fake...

    Gabby Adamo loved the Chicago White Sox so much it influenced how she dressed and even how she drank her favorite beverages. “She didn’t despise Cubs fans, but she despised anything to do with red and blue,” said her father, Vince Adamo of Frankfort, Illinois. “She would not wear anything to do with red and blue in case people thought she was a Cubs fan. From a young age, she never wore red and blue together. She never held anything red and blue. She wouldn’t even drink out of a red-and-blue straw.” Gabby Adamo rooted for the White Sox even during a three-year battle with leukemia. But she never got to attend one of their opening day games.

Less than two years ago they won the World Series as one of the most dominant teams in MLB history. They looked ready to compete for championships for years to come with a promising young core. Since then, they have had an atrocious 2019 campaign, changed general managers, fired their coach, been the subject of a sign-stealing investigation, and traded their best player in Mookie Betts.

    The Red Sox vowed to crack down on racism around Fenway Park after former All-Star Torii Hunter claimed he was called the N-word there “100 times,” including by “little kids” whose parents failed to intervene.

It happens to dedicated Black employees who work for us on game days. Their uniforms...
