  • Live from Fenway

    We're about 2 1/2 hours from first pitch of ALCS Game 3 here at Fenway Park, a rare (but much appreciated) late-afternoon start in October. Published October 13 2008

    Are the Rays freaked out by the bright lights of the postseason? David Ortiz (and Joe Maddon) think so. Published October 11 2008

  • Like I said...

    Well, I should have known this was coming. Carl Crawford just singled to right to lead off the seventh, dashing Daisuke Matsuzaka's bid for only the second no-hitter in postseason history. Published October 10 2008

    Just a quick update from Philadelphia, where Game 2 of the NLCS starts in about 15 minutes: Phillies manager Charlie Manuel's mother, June, died this morning at Roanoke Memorial Hospital at the age of 87. Charlie Manuel will manage today's game, but his status for the rest of the series is unclear. Published October 10 2008
