Now that the Red Sox have experienced their biggest free agent bust in team history after designating Pablo Sandoval for assignment last week while still owing him $48.5 million, the Orioles may be in the early stages of their worst signing ever. The post-All Star break return from the DL of slug-or-miss first baseman Chris Davis was met with little fanfare, even though the losing Orioles were in desperate need of anything positive. Granted, the Orioles’ main problem has been starting pitching, but Davis was given big money for his bat and the 2017 team needs it. Remember when Crush Davis used to go on a tear for a month hitting prodigious home runs seemingly every night while getting on base at an impressive clip?
A. Sherrod Blakely discusses the comments that a NBA scout made about Jayson Tatum that called the rookie a selfish player.
Boston Red Sox fans are used to seeing Jackie Bradley Jr. patrol the outfield with ease, but his miraculous catch Friday night was one of the best of his career. Bradley robbed Los Angeles Angels third baseman Yunel Escobar of extra bases with an incredible leaping catch against the wall at Angel Stadium. The star outfielder also had a pretty solid night at the plate in Boston’s 6-2 win over L.A. So how did JBJ make his stellar grab? He broke it down with NESN’s Jahmai Webster after the game, and you can hear what he had to say in the video above from “NESN Sports Today,” presented by People’s United Bank.
