Tomase: What's in store for 2022 Red Sox after unexpected success?

When John Henry declared the Red Sox ahead of schedule, I couldn't put my finger on what struck me about the quote. But after watching a superior Houston Astros team clinch the American League Championship Series on Friday night, it finally hit me. They weren't expecting this next year, either.

New York Yankees: Could 2022 be the go big year for the Yankees?

2021 was another disappointing year for the New York Yankees. After several years of not surviving the postseason, this past year, they didn’t make it past the wild card and lost to the rival Boston Red Sox in the winner-take-all game. It has now stretched to over a decade since the Yankees have even been in a World Series contest for the Yankees and their fans. Many marginal fans are ready to discard the Yankees as their team as their frustration boils over. Is it time for the Yankees to finally do something to reverse that trend?

Was This Red Sox Season a Sign of Things to Come, or Just a Surprising One-off?

Underdogitude is an unfamiliar status for a franchise as storied and well-resourced as the Boston Red Sox. But they adapted to it well this October. In the regular season, Boston was a clear step behind Tampa Bay in the standings, finishing in a dead heat with a Yankees team that forgot how to hit and only just holding off Toronto’s furious late charge. They made the wild-card game on the last day of the season—but despite being the lower seed in both their wild-card and ALDS matchups (against the Yankees and 100-win Rays, respectively) they dispatched their opponents fairly easily. There are wild-card teams that are unlucky to find themselves in geographical proximity to a titanic powerhouse, and then there are wild-card teams that play like the fourth- or fifth-best team in the league. For most of the year, the Red Sox were the latter.

Red Sox Bats Again Silent as Astros Advance to World Series

The Astros are heading to their third World Series in the last five years, besting the Red Sox, 5–0, on Friday night to finish the ALCS in six games. The Red Sox had the pitcher they wanted on the mound in Nathan Eovaldi, but the offense they needed never materialized as Houston’s starter, Luis Garcia, pitched 5 2/3 masterful innings, striking out seven against just a single walk and one lonely hit.

Scattered Thoughts after a season-ending loss

Texas Airport Plane Crash Latest: New Details Emerge About the Aircraft

Earlier this week, a plane crashed at a Texas airport near Houston. It burst into flames. But miraculously, all 21 people passengers and crew members walked away. The passengers were trying to fly to the Houston Astros playoff game against the Boston Red Sox. Instead, they never got much farther than the runway. The plane failed to attain elevation. Pilots hit the brakes and slowed the plane down enough that when it crashed into a fence at the Texas airport, all people could leave the plane.

Despite ALCS loss, Red Sox express positive attitude

HOUSTON — Once they got through the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League Division Series, it would've been hard to consider the 2021 Red Sox as anything but a success. Sure, expectations change. And to look back at preseason projections and consider anything better than a fourth-place finish a success would've overlooked how well they played for three months early in the season.
