    Bonkers is a good way to put it.
    Yes, that the Boston Red Sox overcame all figurative and literal odds to make it to the American League Championship Series. Also, that they chose catcher Kevin Plawecki's melancholy walk-up song to belt out during their champagne celebration.
    Video of this sing-a-long from FS1's postgame coverage went viral around social media, and fans of the team or the song or both couldn't get enough of the players singing the Tiësto remix of Calum Scott's cover of “Dancing On My Own.”
    Well, it looks like Scott and the singer of the original song...

    There's plenty of history - both on-field and off - between the Red Sox and the Houston Astros, and it's all about to come to a head as the teams face off in the American League Championship Series.
    Naturally, Nathan Eovaldi has strong feelings toward his upcoming opponent.
    “I don't necessarily hate any team, but they're not high up on my list,” Eovaldi said Wednesday in an appearance on WEEI's The Greg Hill Show .
    Eovaldi's opinion is rooted in a 2018 incident, though. As pointed out co-host Chris Curtis in the interview, when the Red Sox and Astros were preparing for...

    Chris Sale hasn't quite looked like Chris Sale over his last few starts for the Boston Red Sox.
    The hard-throwing lefty, who missed most of the 2021 Major League Baseball season due to Tommy John surgery, lasted just one inning in Boston's eventual 14-6 American League Division Series Game 2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. Sale gave up five earned runs and wasn't able to dominate the Tampa Bay lineup.
    The Red Sox decided to move him to the bullpen for the remainder of the ALDS, but was not used before they punched their ticket to the AL Championship Series against the...

    Could the Boston Red Sox earn home-field advantage if they were to advance to the World Series?
    There is a chance, but a lot has to go right for Boston.
    First off, the Red Sox need to punch their own ticket to the Fall Classic by taking down the Houston Astros. The American League Championship Series kicks off Friday night at Minute Maid Park as Boston looks to repeat its 2018 postseason success against the Astros.
    The next step for a potential Red Sox home-field advantage would be the Atlanta Braves earning a spot of their own in the World Series. The Braves are the only...

    The Boston Red Sox begin their American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros on Friday night, but it's to be determined who will pitch in Games 1 and 2.
    There certainly are options. Nate Eovaldi has dazzled in the postseason and looked like the ace of the team. Eduardo Rodriguez bounced back against the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 4 to help Boston advance out of the AL Division Series. We can't forget Nick Pivetta who pitched four scoreless innings of relief in the 13-inning Game 3 win.
    Tanner Houck also may be an option after he's shown promise out of the...

    Before the 2021 Major League Baseball season even began, many experts and analysts left the Boston Red Sox out of the postseason race completely.
    The tables have turned, though, and the Red Sox are preparing to take on the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series.
    It's been a fun ride to get to where they are. First, Boston took care of the New York Yankees in the winner-take-all AL Wild Card Game before defeating the 100-win Tampa Bay Rays in four games in the AL Division Series.
    The Red Sox led the AL East for 85 days this season before falling back to...

    It's safe to say the Red Sox love their manager.
    Alex Cora has been instrumental in Boston turning around its fortunes this season after a tumultuous 2020 campaign while the skipper was away from baseball serving a one-year suspension.
    Several players have pointed to Cora's impact in wake of the Red Sox defeating the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League Division Series, and pitcher Nathan Eovaldi joined the chorus Wednesday during an appearance on WEEI's “The Greg Hill Show.”
    “He's always calm, cool and collected,” Eovaldi said, when asked why the Red Sox enjoy playing...
