Daily Red Sox Links: J.D. Martinez, Craig Kimbrel, Bill James

In today’s links, J.D. Martinez and Xander Bogaerts aren’t free agents ... yet. Plus Bill James said some grossly unfair words and Craig Kimbrel is a potential free agent target for the Phillies. J.D. Martinez won two Silver Sluggers this year and some people, including his agent, think he should have been an MVP candidate. According to Evan Drellich, he might be open to free agency again soon, as will teammate Xander Bogaerts. (Evan Drellich; NBC Sports) The Philadelphia Phillies once signed a World Series-winning closer of the Red Sox in free agency. Could they try again with Craig...

Subtitle: Tough decisions are on tapCARLSBAD, Calif. — Lost in the discussion at the GM meetings of what happens if the Red Sox lose closer Craig Kimbrel is how what happens beyond next season affects this offseason.That’s because the nucleus of this team has a one-year shelf life the Red Sox need to address sooner than later.Four players — Chris Sale, Rick Porcello, J.D. Martinez and Xander Bogaerts — are guaranteed to be with the Red Sox for only next season before either their contracts expire (Sale, Porcello), they enter free agency (Bogaerts) or opt out of their deal...

The Red Seat: Episode 100-World Series Champs!

They had a hell of a path to get here and are now the greatest team in club history. They did it. The greatest Red Sox team in history completed their dominant playoff run by dispatching a great Dodgers team in just five games. The best thing about this series was the fact that it wasn’t Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez, Xander Bogaerts, or Chris Sale that won it for them. It was guys like Steve Pearce, Rafael Devers, Mitch Moreland, Nate Eovaldi, and Christian Vazquez that set the tone and came up big. Maybe the biggest storyline of all was redemption by David Price. Price continued to build...

Alex Cora at core of Red Sox' success

LOS ANGELES — Xander Bogaerts wasn’t proud to admit it, even as his Red Sox teammates were about 20 feet away, spraying each other with champagne and pouring beer over one another’s heads.Yes, he said, he once had doubt about their chances. But only once. And thinking about it now made him smile.“I’m going to be honest,” he said. “(Saturday) ... we were down, what, 4-0? It was the seventh (inning)?”After seven-plus hours over 18 innings in a crushing loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, the Sox soon found themselves in a 4-0 hole in Saturday’s Game 4. In that moment,...

The role players have taken over

And they’re on the cusp of leading the Red Sox to a championship During the regular season, fairly or unfairly, the Red Sox always seemed carried by their stars to a disproportionate extent. Granted, there’s no way a team wins 108 games over the grind that is MLB’s regular season based solely on their star power, but the stars were always the biggest focus. On offense it was Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez, with some help from the second-tier guys like Xander Bogaerts and Andrew Benintendi. On the mound, it was the Big Three of Chris Sale, David Price and Craig Kimbrel. Obviously there...

Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts (0-for-15) responsible for Boston Red Sox losing Game 3 of World Series

Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts (0-for-15) responsible for Boston Red Sox losing Game 3 of World Series

The main reason the Red Sox lost to the Dodgers is lack of production from Mookie Betts (0-for-7, one walk, three strikeouts) and Xander Bogaerts (0-for-8, two strikeouts).
