  • Pain of losing Lester cuts deep
    BOSTON -- Yoenis Cespedes is both showman and shaman, bringing muscle and magic to a team sorely lacking in both. He will hit home runs that remind you of Manny and uncork throws rivaling those of Bo, and adoring Sox fans will soon sport T-shirts that say "Cespedes for the Rest of Us," paying tribute to the Cuban-born outfielder and "Seinfeld" simultaneously. But for all the excitement Cespedes is sure to bring to Yawkey Way, it is hard to shake the notion that in the end, Cespedes will prove to be nothing more than a powerful anesthetic. And it will take more than Cespedes to mask the pain of losing Jon Lester, the best left-hander ever to wear a Sox uniform not named Ruth or Grove. A team that won three World Series in 10 years because it had pitchers named Schilling and Pedro and Lowe in 2004, Beckett and Lester and Daisuke in 2007, and Lester and Lackey and Buchholz in 2013, now would have you believe that you can trade away...
  • Bold GMs highlight of Deadline Day
    Wow. What a day. Who among us woke up Thursday morning saying to ourselves, "I bet that by the end of the day, David Price will be a Tiger and Jon Lester will be in Oakland?" Anyone? Not even Miss Cleo, right? But that's what trade deadline day 2014 brought us: Two first-place teams reaching for the stars, trying to "ace" each other out. Two of the best general managers in the business finding two other bold, creative GMs to do business with. And two teams with win-the-World Series dreams that suddenly, shockingly, used the trading-deadline madness to transform themselves, almost literally overnight. "That was incredible," said one NL executive. "That was great drama." Remember three weeks ago, when Billy Beane and the A's swooped in and traded for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, and across the continent in Detroit, Justin Verlander's reaction was: "They made that trade for us?" ...
  • Ray Rice: It was 'one-time incident'
    OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice apologized to his wife and all women affected by domestic violence on Thursday, when he took questions for the first time since his alleged altercation with his then-fiancee in February. While Rice declined twice to give details about what happened in the Atlantic City, New Jersey, elevator, he said it was a "one-time incident" and expressed his intentions to become an "ambassador" against domestic violence. "I made the biggest mistake of my life," Rice said. "That night I replay over and over in my head. That's not me. My actions were inexcusable. That's something I have to live with the rest of my life. The pain I'm talking about living with is waking up every day, and my daughter is two years old now, and I have a little girl, who's very smart, very intelligent, and one day she's going to know the power of Google, and me having to explain that to her, what happened that night." Unlike Rice's press...
