David Price would be right move for Red Sox — David Ortiz customarily showers and dresses before he speaks to reporters after games. But he was standing at his locker waiting to talk shortly after the Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays on May 31, 2014.

Red Sox interest in David Price makes sense — Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski has said several times that the Red Sox need a top-of-the-rotation starter. He also said this month that a starter was more likely to be acquired via free agency than trade. The Sox also would like to retain the No.

At second base, the plan is to preserve Dustin Pedroia — Third in a series examining the Red Sox roster That Dustin Pedroia will be their second baseman is something the Red Sox have counted on for nearly a decade now. He has been their Opening Day starter nine years in a row.

Red Sox tweak roster ahead of Rule 5 draft — The Red Sox on Friday added infielder Marco Hernandez, lefthanded reliever Williams Jerez, and righthanded reliever Pat Light to their 40-man roster. With two spots needed to accommodate the moves, righthanded reliever Anthony Varvaro was outrighted and infielder Josh Rutledge were designated for assignment. Varvaro elected free agency.

Here’s why I voted for Josh Donaldson for AL MVP — My first-place vote for American League Most Valuable Player went to Toronto's Josh Donaldson in a close call over Mike Trout of the Angels. Donaldson was named the winner of the award Thursday night. Advertisement Trout led the AL with a 9.0 WAR (per with Donaldson just behind at 8.7.

Red Sox may adjust 40-man roster ahead of Rule 5 draft — The Red Sox could have some moves to make on Friday, the deadline for teams to set their 40-man rosters before the Rule 5 Draft on Dec. 10. Minor league players signed when they were 19 or older and have played four years are eligible for the draft, as are those signed at 18 and have played for five years.

David Ortiz not hanging around too long — It can be difficult for even the best professional athletes to end their careers while still playing at least reasonably well. Look at what Peyton Manning is going through now with the Denver Broncos, throwing wobbly passes and getting benched on Sunday.

David Ortiz remains driving force behind Red Sox — David Ortiz was one of the Red Sox players applauding after Derek Jeter took the final at-bat of his career last September at Fenway Park. The Yankees' legend reached on an infield single to drive in a run and came out of the game for a pinch runner.

@Buccigross Here’s the story w/ his comments. If you’d like to call him a liar, go ahead. But he said what he said.…

Link to preseason story Ortiz where he discusses his legacy, future plans, etc.:…

Beyond Hanley Ramirez, Red Sox have depth at first base — Second in a series examining the Red Sox roster Carl Yastrzemski moved from left field to first base in his later years with the Red Sox. Mickey Mantle was a center fielder before the Yankees shifted him to first. Stan Musial and Paul Molitor changed positions and went to first base, too.

Peter Abraham: No, Dave Dombrowski did not mortgage Red Sox’ future for Craig Kimbrel — Did the Red Sox give up too much for Craig Kimbrel? Yes, they probably did. The Prospect Industrial Complex doesn't like this trade, citing the vast potential of Logan Allen, Carlos Asuaje, Javier Guerra, and Manuel Margot.

RT @BGlobeSports: No, Dave Dombrowski did not mortgage the Red Sox’ future for Craig Kimbrel.

No, Red Sox did not mortgage the future for Craig Kimbrel. Good analysis of trade from @PeteAbe…

He gave up a lot, but Dombrowski did not mortgage Red Sox’ future for Craig Kimbrel, @PeteAbe writes:…

The #RedSox may well have given up too much for Kimbrel. But that doesn’t mean this deal isn’t what they needed:…

@mielcarz Thank you. think most people can tell when there's a line drawn for your job.

Nov 30, 2015

@mielcarz thank you for tying to educate that guy, albeit in vain. Not sure why covering baseball means I can't enjoy any other sports.

@Notteham thanks, enjoy all the free beer Captain Ethics.

RT @garystriewski: Gronk walked out of the locker room wheeling his suitcase, under his own power.

@Notteham Not sure why this is confuses you so, so much, I don't cover that team. Hopefully those words are small enough. Cheers.

Nov 30, 2015

@StPatrick33 hate to break it to you, Mr. Hawking. Don't cover that team.

Nov 30, 2015

@Notteham I don't cover the Pats. Wrong sport. Sweet try, though. So, so close. Pro tip: read bios.

Nov 30, 2015

All it took was every decent receiver getting hurt and assorted brutal calls to beat the Patriots. Ugh.
