Red Sox boss Dave Dombrowski dismisses Rafael Devers trade rumors

MINNEAPOLIS — It sure doesn’t sound like the Red Sox are ready to part ways with Rafael Devers.“We love him,” president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski told the Herald yesterday. “We’re not looking for a third baseman. We like him. He’s our third baseman.”The baby-faced 21-year-old began his sophomore year slowly, but he’s one of the youngest position players in the major leagues and has been heating up of late, hitting .327 with a .919 OPS and three homers in his last 13 games.He’s a .261 hitter with a .765 OPS combined over his 533 big league plate appearances,...

Game 71: The Kid vs. The King

Last night, one of the Yankees’ young fill-in starters threw a gem in the series opener against the Mariners. Domingo German was great. Retired 18 straight at one point.

Make it five straight wins as Rougned Odor and Austin Bibens-Dirkx team up to tame KC I like it when dope things like Austin Bibens-Dirkx winning baseball games as a starting pitcher for the Texas Rangers with Isiah Kiner-Falefa as his catcher. I like when Rougned Odor hits (he hit his second dong of the year tonight). I like when Joey Gallo walks (he did so thrice tonight). I like the Rangers and, for the last few days at least, the Rangers have liked me back.

A blueprint is already set for one of the Royals most valuable trade pieces

The New York Yankees laid the groundwork for the Royals to get a nice return on their super-utility man. The Kansas City Royals have finally begun the fire sale that we all knew was coming. Jon Jay and Kelvin Herrera are gone, and you can bet that teams are calling to check in on several other Royals players as well. One of the names that teams will target will be 2B/1B/CF/LF/RF and 2017 AL stolen base leader Whit Merrifield. Whit Merrifield has become a fan favorite in Kansas City and it’s really no secret why. He’s currently slashing .293/.370/.421/.791 with 15 SB and a 118 wRC+ in...

That is the question... “I’ve been booed before. It just means that they have expectations, and they’re not met.” — Alex Avila Alex Avila is having a potentially historic season. Unfortunately, not in a good way. One of the D-backs’ tent-pole off-season arrivals, Avila signed to a two-year, $8.25 million contract at the end of January. Coming off a sturdy 118 OPS+ season with the Cubs and Tigers, Avila was expected to form the left-handed half of a catching platoon with Jeff Mathis.
