Toronto Blue Jays v Boston Red Sox

There’s no denying that Xander Bogaerts is a critical player for the Red Sox and a shortstop many teams would love to employ. He needs to be healthy in the postseason for Boston to contend. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic) ($$)

David Price’s run at postseason redemption will be one of the most enticing narratives for the Sox in the coming weeks. (Jared Diamond; Wall Street Journal)

At the other end of the double-play tandem from Bogaerts, the Red Sox have tons of options and Alex Cora is well aware of that fact, along with others that pertain to constructing the playoff roster. (Owen Pence; Boston Globe)

Part of the plan might be leaning more on Brock Holt than Ian Kinsler at second base. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald)

Light the beacons! Don Orsillo is coming back. It’s just for one game, but it is better than nothing. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

Kyrie Irving brought a friend to NBA media day and it shows that he’s up on his Red Sox inside jokes. (Michael Clair; Cut 4)

There’s only one week left of regular season baseball. The Red Sox are setting the franchise wins record, but what is everyone else doing? (Michael Baumann; The Ringer)
