Betts hits 17th HR, Red Sox beat Braves after cutting Hanley

BOSTON — Mookie Betts hit his major-league leading 17th home run, J.D. Martinez slugged his 16th homer and the Boston Red Sox beat the Atlanta Braves 6-2 on Friday night hours after a surprising roster shakeup.Boston got its fifth win in six games shortly after announcing it had designated Hanley Ramirez for assignment. The move freed up a roster spot for Dustin Pedroia to be activated from the DL, and also created the chance for regular playing time at first base for Mitch Moreland, who had a solo homer in the eighth.The Red Sox fared fine without Ramirez, the struggling slugger they...

Can we stop acting like catchers are ruining the best team in baseball?

Can we stop acting like catchers are ruining the best team in baseball?

Sandy León’s actually hitting, but more importantly, forest for the trees, my dudes. The Red Sox are 34-16. They have the most wins in baseball and the highest winning percentage in baseball and show no signs of slowing down as summer approaches. They have MVP candidates in Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez and will get a former MVP back today when Dustin Pedroia makes his season debut. They have Chris Sale and Craig Kimbrel and a 25-man roster that largely makes your eyes pop out of your head in awe. They’re that good. Hell, they’re great. There are exceptions, of course, and no one...

Daily Red Sox Links: The other rivalry

Daily Red Sox Links: The other rivalry

The greatest rivalry in sports has been rekindled this season, but don’t forget that the Tampa Bay Rays have been a thorn in Boston’s side while the bigger rivalry was a bit dormant. Plus the Red Sox are lucky to have Chris Sale, J.D. Martinez can keep this up and hopefully Jackie Bradley Jr. can hit better again. No team will ever be the Red Sox’s rival in the same way the New York Yankees are. That fact has been reinforced this year as both teams have had some memorable clashes, both in baseball terms and fisticuff terms, all while the two have taken turns being the best teams in...
