  9. Beware of Boston's unsung heroes

    David Schoenfield

    You blew it, American League. You should have buried the Boston Red Sox in the Granary Burying Ground on Tremont Street when you had the chance. Or dumped the bodies in Boston Harbor. The Red Sox have no right being 36-33 and just two games out of...

  13. Team of destiny? Orioles have magic look

    David Schoenfield

    One play doesn't make a season. Logically, we understand this. But you know, it's a lot more fun to throw logic out the window and turn to the emotion of a moment sometimes, the emotion of one important victory and believe, "Maybe ... just maybe, the...

    David Schoenfield

    Let's do some position-by-position analysis for the Boston Red Sox. They won 90 games a year ago. I went through all the numbers and can't come up with a solid reason why they won't win more games in 2012. Catcher: Jarrod Saltalamacchia Saltalama...
