The History Of The Boston Red Sox: Jersey Number 1-3

In a new series by Boston Sports Extra, we decided to take a look back at the historic players to dawn our jersey numbers. Let’s witness history! Number 1 Bobby Doerr: Until recently, Bobby was the oldest living member of the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame. He played second base for the Red Sox from 1937-1951.

Why the American League Needs to Fear Xander Bogaerts

This season alone he sports a .371 average with 2 homers and  9 RBIs throughout the first eight games. The offseason...

Can We Get Chris Sale a Win?

One of the most dominating pitcher in the American League has two no decisions. When will the cards fall for Chris Sale?

The dominant left hander made a huge run towards AL Cy Young Award last year, finishing second to...

Dustin Pedroia Needs to Be Traded

The injuries, inconsistencies, and offensive struggles can’t justify his elite defense anymore. It’s time to cash in on the former AL MVP Dustin Pedroia. Although it pains me to say this, trading Pedroia something that needs to happen. Can he really come back from surgery, ready to put all of the DL stints behind him? The former All-Star has missed 134 games within the last three seasons. Until the 2021 season, the Boston Red Sox owe him $56,500,000. That’s crazy for a 34 year old infielder. While never expected to hit for a lot of power (140 career homers), Pedroia is...
