BALTIMORE – Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell could tell in the bullpen before last night’s game. Clay Buchholz was not equipped with his best arsenal, the command of pitches a tick off, the snap on his breaking ball a touch flat. When Farrell reported back to Terry Francona, the Red Sox manager did not [...]

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Back on center stage, Tom Brady acted like, well, the NFL’s biggest star. It seemed to take forever, though. A year after being sidelined with torn knee ligaments, Brady resembled a rusty game manager more than the invincible record-setting quarterback who guided the Patriots to a perfect 2007 regular season. Yet, he [...]

CHICAGO – The catch seemed improbable. Dustin Pedroia scrambled to the foul line in mid-range right field. He was in place in time, making a stellar over-the-shoulder grab, and firing the ball immediately to shortstop Alex Gonzalez, who doubled up Scott Podsednik at second for the first two outs for Jon Lester. The play was [...]

The Boss is back. Time for the Patriots — and the NFL — to rock again. Tom Brady, the NFL’s version of Springsteen/Bono/Petty, is throwing passes and avoiding paparazzi, and pro football is the better for it. This guy is no halftime act at the Super Bowl. He’s the reason New England again is favored [...]

CHICAGO – Nothing is certain for Tim Wakefield at this point in the season, at this point in his career, at this point in the pain. He can barely walk around the clubhouse, with a limp that gets more and less noticeable, based on the day. There is constant discomfort, most obvious when the aging [...]
