Red Sox vs. Blue Jays: Last chance to see

In case this is goodbye, Jon Lester... Take a good long look at these Boston Red Sox. The ones on the field, in the dugout, all around. Come the start of their series against the Yankees on August 1st, smart money says some of them will be gone. We're already down Jake Peavy, but we all know the Red Sox aren't done dealing just yet. There were murmurs that they were particularly active on the phones these past few days, even after Peavy's departure, trying to line up homes for the assets they can't rely on to be here in 2015. That might just mean the departure of a couple pen arms and bench...

In fact, there has yet to be a lot of dialogue between the […]

Trading Jon Lester for Matt Kemp doesn't make sense

Trading Matt Kemp makes sense. Trading Jon Lester makes sense. But for each other? The Red Sox could use Matt Kemp in their outfield. Not necessarily in 2014, where Boston isn't competing for a playoff spot any longer, but in the future where Kemp is still under contract. The Dodgers could use Jon...

Archer takes offense to Ortiz's bat flip

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- With Christmas carols playing weirdly in the background for what the Tampa Bay Rays called "Christmas in July," leave it to David Ortiz to play bad Santa. Not only did Ortiz hit a three-run home run off Rays pitcher Chris Archer that accounted for all of Boston's runs in a 3-2 win Sunday afternoon that ended Tampa Bay's nine-game winning streak, he made the Rays cry foul, too. Archer was offended by Ortiz's exaggerated bat flip and leisurely stroll around the bases, which broke a scoreless tie in the third.
