Jacob deGrom making history by winning so few starts
I had spent no more than 15 minutes examining Jacob deGrom’s statistics before my head started hurting. The plight of the Mets’ ace is well known—deGrom has a league-leading 1.81 ERA but only seven wins in his 24 starts, although he has now won two in a row, including his start Monday night against
Most under-appreciated Red Sox of 2018? Rick Porcello
PHILADELPHIA — Red Sox manager Alex Cora threw Brian Johnson’s name into the Red Sox MVP conversation before Tuesday’s game. From the sound of it, Cora was speaking more to the condition of being under-appreciated by the masses, of being a subtly important contributor.
It’s time to talk about the Red Sox bullpen struggles
On Tuesday, theRed Soxwon their 86th game of the season. Tuesday’s date was August 14. Those two facts in concurrence with one another is absurd.

Sizing up the NL East, the rise of unorthodox pitchers and more
Twenty weeks down and seven to go, and still there is virtually no separation between the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies in the NL East. They have ranked 1-2 in the division in some order for 53 consecutive days. And one of them, if not both, could jump from 90 losses last year to 90 wins
Phillies: Their Season-Defining Moment is Finally Here
Rain in the Philadelphia-region Monday morning comes on the heels of a disappointing 2-4 west coast road trip for the Phillies. Perhaps even more disheartening, the team dropped two of three to the lowly San Diego Padres with Zach Eflin, Aaron Nola, and Jake Arrieta all taking the hill.

Red Sox's David Price: Throws six scoreless innings
It was a dominant performance for the lefty, setting his season-high strikeout total. Only twice did he even allow a runner to reach second base.

Hernandez was 13-12 in 2010, but he was far ahead of the pack in other categories.

Red Sox need a healthy Eduardo Rodriguez for the playoffs

Red Sox 5, Orioles 0: David Price keeps the good times rollin'
After Friday's slugfest in Baltimore, the Red Sox and Orioles started Saturday's doubleheader with different vibes.
