Photo by Mitchell Layton/ Rafael Devers has been one of the big reasons the Red Sox are where they are currently in the standings, not only with his overall production but also timely hitting. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal) Speaking of where the Red Sox currently sit in the standings, Devers is not surprised by it. (Christopher Smith; Masslive) Another one of those reasons for the team’s performance has been the starting pitching, and perhaps no one has been more surprising there than Nick Pivetta.

Red Sox 5, Tiger 6: Unfortunately ugly losses count the same as well

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ The Red Sox bats fall asleep again in a disappointing loss. The Red Sox have been an inconsistent baseball team of late. That’s better than last year when they were consistently terrible, but after their hot start this year it’s been a little disappointing. The offense in particular has been rough to watch of late, and that continued here on Wednesday. Playing amid near-constant rain, they were shut down for most of the night by Casey Mize. A clutch homer from J.D. Martinez did make things interesting and ultimately push the...

Mapping out a potential path to the AL MVP Award for J.D. Martinez

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ When it comes to competing for the AL MVP award, as a designated hitter, J.D. Martinez has the deck stacked against him to some degree, but with enough offensive production, anything’s possible. The first month of the 2021 MLB season is in the books and to mark the occasion, MLB handed out its monthly awards, including correctly honoring the great work of Matt Barnes. These monthly awards are nice, but what about the annual awards? Although some may argue that early May is still too soon to think about things like the American League MVP...

What Hunter Renfroe Believes Is ‘Pretty Special’ About Red Sox’s Lineup

As an opposing pitcher, there are no breaks as you work through the Red Sox’s batting order. Getting through the likes of Xander Bogaerts, J.D.
