    David Schoenfield

    I know this runs contrary to how we're supposed to view the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays, but aren't the Red Sox the underdog in this fight? I mean, go back to March, check the preseason predictions and look at what everyone thought before th...

  9. Over/under: Wins for Red Sox

    David Schoenfield

  14. Best story of first half? Try the Pirates

    David Schoenfield

    The Pittsburgh Pirates couldn't complete a series sweep of the Boston Red Sox, but taking two of three and knocking the Sox out of first place qualifies as one of the biggest moral victories for the franchise in years. A year ago, the Pirates were...

  15. Everything getting back to normal

    David Schoenfield
