What do you think -- will GM Kenny Williams get fired after this season? -- Steve M., Chicago
I think everything is under evaluation. The Sox certainly haven't received their money's worth for a payroll over $126 million, but the chairman is a very loyal...

My photo editor texted me last week with a request to shoot three high school football players for a story about smaller schools taking on larger football powerhouses. But, she said we want to do something different, pose them with something iconic or...

A finales de la semana pasada Jeffrey Loria, el dueño de los Miami Marlins, dijo que "estaba confiado" en que su equipo clasificaría para la post-temporada. Pocos le hicieron caso.

I wasn’t expecting any assurances. I didn’t think President of Baseball Operations Larry Beinfest would guarantee that Giancarlo Stanton would be a life-long Marlin. At a minimum, I was banking on the “some players are less likely to...
