    Mark Teixeira: Judge 'woke a sleeping giant' playing 'New York, New York' at Fenway

    8 monthes ago - By TheScore

    Former New York Yankees All-Star Mark Teixeira isn't a fan of Aaron Judge 's trolling techniques. Following the Yankees' Game 2 win over the Boston Red Sox that knotted the ALDS at one game apiece, Judge walked past the home clubhouse at Fenway Park with speakers blaring "New York, New York" - the iconic Frank Sinatra tune that's played after every game at Yankee Stadium.

  • Brock Holt Jokes About Alex Cora's Impact On Red Sox Ahead Of ALCS

    8 monthes ago - By NESN

    Alex Cora is pretty darn good at this managing thing, huh?
    Cora has been sensational in his first season as manager of the Boston Red Sox. After leading the ballclub to the most regular-season wins in franchise history, Cora pushed all the right buttons to help the Red Sox reach their first American League Championship Series since 2013.
    Arguably no one was affected by Cora's mixing and matching in the American League Division Series more than Brock Holt. The young skipper inserted the ultra-utility man into Boston's Game 3 lineup, which resulted in Holt hitting for the first cycle in...

  • What Was Alex Cora's Boldest Move During The Red Sox's ALDS?

    8 monthes ago - By NESN

    Alex Cora isn't afraid to shake things up and he showed that during the American League Division Series.
    And it paid off as the Boston Red Sox eliminated the New York Yankees from the playoffs in four games.
    From pitching Chris Sale in the eighth inning during Game 4 to inserting Brock Holt and Rafael Devers into the lineup against Yankees pitcher Luis Severino, it was anyone's guess as to what the manager would do next.
    But what was Cora's boldest move during the series?
    The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo and former Sox pitcher Manny Delcarmen joined NESN's Adam Pellerin to discuss what they...

  • Rangers expected to make Kevin Shattenkirk healthy scratch vs. Sharks

    8 monthes ago - By Sportsnet

    Kevin Shattenkirk is the New York Rangers ‘ highest-paid skater, but that won't factor into whether or not rookie head coach David Quinn puts him in the lineup Thursday when the Rangers host the San Jose Sharks.
    Quinn told reporters Wednesday that he and his coaching staff were weighing their options but that it was a possibility Shattenkirk would be made a healthy scratch.
    The Rangers are 0-3-0 so far this season. They lost 3-2 to the Preds in their home opener before dropping back-to-back road contests 3-1 to the Sabres and 8-5 to the Hurricanes. Shattenkirk has gone a combined minus-4...

  • John Henry Reveals Only Criticism He Had Of Alex Cora After Job Interview

    8 monthes ago - By NESN

    As a first-year manager, you can't do much better than Alex Cora did in 2018.
    After getting hired in November 2017 by the Boston Red Sox, Cora led the team to 108 regular-season wins, and at the very least a trip to the American League Championship Series for the first time since 2013.
    His composure and ability to read his players has been impressive to watch, and his transition from Houston Astros bench coach to Sox manager has been seamless. In all of that, of course, is the fact that Cora is remarkably confident in what he's doing.
    During the interview process, Cora's confidence...

  • Oilers' Milan Lucic Fell Asleep During Red Sox's ALDS Game 4 Win Over Yankees

    8 monthes ago - By NESN

    The Boston Red Sox had fans on the edge of their seats during Game 4 of the American League Division Series against the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.
    Boston ultimately squeaked out the 4-3 win, but not without a nail-biting ninth inning that saw Giancarlo Stanton at the plate with the bases loaded and nobody out.
    The end of the game had its fair share of drama and certainly wasn't a game you could fall asleep early watching.
    Unless you're Milan Lucic.

  • How Alex Cora Felt About Red Sox Playing ‘New York, New York' During Celebration

    8 monthes ago - By NESN

    The Boston Red Sox apparently are big fans of Aaron Judge's taste in music.
    The New York Yankees star made a bold decision this past Saturday, blasting Frank Sinatra's “New York, New York” after the Bronx Bombers' Game 2 victory over the Red Sox in the teams' American League Division Series. Little did Judge know, that would be the last victory of the Yankees' 2018 season.
    Boston put the finishing touches on its division rival Tuesday night, advancing to the American League Championship Series with a 4-3 win over the Yanks in the Bronx. As if having your season end on your home turf wasn't...
